This book provides a comprehensive overview of the Yangtze River system and its water resources development and management. From the perspectives of geology, hydrology, zoology, ecology, it discusses the Yangtze River’s geological history and aquatic environments, analyses the endangered species along the river basin, and reviews the effects of human hydrolytic activities on its ecosystem. By studying the history of Yangtze River system and its water resources development, it provides insights into the effects of evolution and human activities on the ecosystem of its basin, and offers strategic thoughts on conservation and sustainable development of the Yangtze River.
Written by an author with extensive experience in the field, this book is an invaluable reference resource for researchers interested in the Yangtze River.
Jin Chen obtained his Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Civil Engineering from the former Wuhan University of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering (now one of the schools of Wuhan University) in 1982 and 1985, respectively. He then earned his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Civil Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2001. Dr. Chen’s undergraduate and graduate studies focused on hydraulic engineering and structures, and he has pursued research at various research institutes and universities in the United States, Canada, Australia and Sweden. Currently, Dr. Chen is the Vice President, a Professor and Doctoral Advisor at the Yangtze River Scientific Research Institute under the Yangtze River Water Resources Commission. He is also the Vice Chairman of the Water Resources Professional Committee of the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society, the Director of the Hubei Provincial Key Laboratory for Basin-wide Water Resources and Ecological Environment Science, and an advisory member of the Hubei Provincial People's Government. Dr. Chen’s research has mainly focused on river basin water resources and aquatic environments. Furthermore, he received the YRWRC "Major Achievement Award" in 2007; was selected as one of the first candidates for the "High-end Talent Leadership Training Program" of Hubei Province in 2012; has received a Hubei Province special allowance since 2013; and received the Hubei Provincial Environmental Protection Government Award in 2015.
