Work experience
The main research area is experiment and study of terrestrial land surface process, which include soil salinization and desertification, C and N biogeochemistry cycle, agricultural hydrology, comprehensive improvement of fragile ecosystems._x000D_
The aims of present studies are to quantify the biogeochemical cycles of C and N, its temporal variations and regional differences, and its responds to climate changes in ecosystems based long term in situ continuous measurement. The exchange of main trace gases between terrestrial land surface and atmosphere are also investigated. _x000D_
These works are mostly funded by four agencies: State development and Planning Commission, State Science and Technique Commission, National Nature Science Foundation Commission and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
