Work experience
In the past years, was mainly engaged in the forest remote sensing in dryland works relating to desertification, the research sites were scattered over the Northwest, the North China and the Northeast (short for "Three North"). From 1982 to 1983, as a technician, participated in the comprehensive planning of the Three-North shelter forest system construction. From 1987 to 1990, as a director of sub-project, participated in the national scientific and technical research project of seventh 5-year plan called comprehensive research on the Three-North shelter forest by remote sensing, established a model of shelter-belt width between ground and TM image. Recently, participated in the research for establishing assessment indicator system of desertification, and took charge of drawing up the regulations for technical operationsof desertification monitoring over China.
