The researchers from the Instituted of Subtropical Agriculture examined the microbial carbon use efficiency, microbial biomass turnover, and necromass accumulation in rice rhizosphere and bulk soils subjected to long-term (31 years) fertilizations.
A research team led by associated professor LIU Jinzhao from the Institute of Earth Environment investigated the variations in n-alkane δ13C values with major plant groups, and analyzed the responses of n-alkane δ13C values among plant groups to precipitation amount and temperature.
A study led by Dr. LAN Jianghu from the Institute of Earth Environment investigated a 533-cm section from Lake Zhongquanzi, located in the northernmost part of the Minqin Basin in arid northern China, to reconstruct the history of EASM during the past two millennia.
Chinese scientists from Hefei Institutes of Physical Science developed a comprehensive monitoring system that is based on optics technology to monitor toxic and harmful gases for industrial parks.
Recently, researchers from the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture (ISA), together with collaborators, identified different forest and land management strategies as well as their biomass carbon sinks from 2002 to 2017 in southern China by combing optical and low frequency passive microwaves satellite data. They also evaluated soil moisture trends from 2010 to 2017 for this area.
Recently. Prof. HU Yunfeng's team at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences used the Normalized Comprehensive Hotspots Index (NCH) to determine the spatial distribution of hotspots for desertification research based on the number of Chinese articles. The results indicated that the number of desertification studies in China has shown a general downward trend.
