Description (user) :

Based on a thorough understanding of changing facts on fluvial morphodynamics and ecology on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the research projects in this book study the effect of the plateau uplift on river network morphology, fluvial processes, aquatic ecology (i.e. wetland, lake and benthic invertebrates) and desertification in the local region. The research focusses on analyzing the causes and mechanism underlying these changes during a comprehensive field survey in 2007-2014, and in the meantime proposes suitable management strategies for protection and rehabilitation of this region.

Main research contents include: 1) hydrological and geomorphic processes of stream network development under the geological background of the plateau uplift; 2) modern fluvial processes (i.e. river pattern diversity and spatial changes, meandering rivers migration, natural cutoff and oxbow lakes evolution); 3) benthic invertebrate assemblages in different aquatic habitat (i.e. alluvial and mountain rivers, saltwater and freshwater lake, oxbow lake) ; 4) wetland types, evolvement and shrinkage mechanisms on the plateau; 5) distribution and evolution of desertification and control methods.

Description (google) :
This book focuses on the river morphodynamics and stream ecology of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The objective of the book is to summarize and synthesize the recent studies based on field surveys undertaken in the period 2007-2014. This book was written to serve as a graduate-level text for a course in river dynamics and stream ecology and as a reference text for engineers and researchers engaged in hydropower engineering, fluvial geomorphology and aquatic ecology. The first two chapters serve as an introduction of geomorphological characteristics as well as uplift and its impact on river morphology of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Chapters 3-5 cover meandering rivers and cutoff, wetlands and wetland shrinkage,desertification and restoration strategies in the Sanjiangyuan region. Chapter 6 discusses the interaction between erosion and vegetation, and Chapter 7 characterizes the aquatic ecology of the Yarlung Tsangpo and the Sanjiangyuan region.
