Research areas

  1. Water-land-energy-carbon nexus
    • The mechanism of regional water-land-energy-carbon nexus
    • Regional water-carbon footprint and flow efficiency
    • Agricultural water-land resource exploitation and carbon emissions
    • Carbon emission of urban water system
  2. Carbon cycle of urban system
    • The theoretical framework of urban carbon cycle, which include natural carbon process and anthropogenic carbon processes.
    • Carbon cycle, carbon balance and carbon circulation in the urban system, which includes the carbon circulation between several subsystems, carbon flows between urban system and external systems, and the embodied carbon flows between urban and rural systems.
    • The carbon cycle pressure of urban system, and the impact of human activities on urban carbon cycle process.
  3. Regional land use and carbon emission
    • The carbon storage and carbon fluxes of regional different land use types.
    • The relationship between energy consumption & carbon emission items and land use types.
    • The carbon emission effect of land use change and its impacting factors
    • The optimization scheme of land use structure based on low-carbon emission(Regional low-carbon potential estimation through land use regulation and control)
  4. Regional carbon budget
    • The theory of regional carbon budget with considering human impact.
    • Regional carbon emission inventory
    • The regional carbon budget estimation on different regional level (provincial, urban and county-level)
    • The regional low-carbon development based on carbon balance
