  • Progress in the study of desertification in China
  • Agricultural land use ; Arid area ; Biodiversity ; China ; Climatic variation ; Concept ; Desertification ; Dune ; Human impact ; Sand
  • The study of desertification in China began in 1977 with the UN Conference on Desertification. This article reviews progress over the last five years in China. A brief description of desertification research in China is given, and developments

  • On the regional characteristics of cuisine in China
  • China ; Food ; Food habit ; Regional disparities
  • The paper attempts to study regional differentitation of cuisine in China and set up a rudimentary framework for regional characteristic of cuisine. This framework is mainly concerned with regional school of cuisine (or cuisine systems) and regional

  • Distributional features of δ18O in precipitation in China
  • Atmospheric circulation ; China ; Continentality ; Evaporation ; Isotope analysis ; Monsoon ; Oxygen 18 ; Precipitation ; Spatial variation ; Temperature
  • According to calculation on available data, higher δ18O exists in atmospheric precipitation of southeastern and northwestern part of China, and the lower in Northeast China and the southern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. In China temperature effect appears

  • Division of desertification climate types and determination of potential range of desertification in China
  • China ; Climate ; Desertification ; Methodology ; Moisture ; Potential evapotranspiration ; Precipitation ; Spatial variation ; Temperature ; Thematic mapping ; Vegetation
  • Distribution of desertification climate types in China was analyzed using Thornthwaite's method on calculating potential evapotranspiration (PE), according to the definition provided by the United Nations Convention, by employing meteorological
  • records from 1864 stations in China. The annual PE and the humidity indices were calculated for every station, based on which a distribution map of HI was constructed. The distribution map of HI was compared with the vegetation map of China
  • and the precipitation map of China respectively. In eastern and northern China, the distribution of climate types is basically acceptable, but for Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau the potential range of desertification is smaller than expected.

  • Temperature variability in China, 1951 to 1996
  • China ; Climatic variability ; Foehn ; Global change ; Monsoon ; Seasonal variation ; Spatial variation ; Temperature
  • The objectives of this study are to determine the existence of any temperature variability trend(s) for the period 1951 through 1996, and to map temperature variability for China on a seasonal basis to depict the geographical patterns of thermal

  • Mineral industry and regional development in China
  • China ; Coal ; Core-periphery ; Energy resources ; Iron ; Multivariate analysis ; Oil ; Ore ; Regional development ; Regional disparities
  • The paper presents an exploratory undertaking to analyse the positive aspects of mineral activity in regional development during the past over 40 years in China. The results of applying factor analysis and cluster analysis indicate that the socio
  • -economic development factor dominates the general pattern of China's regional disparities, and that the development of specialized mineral activities reinforces the structure through improving the leading position of core regions as a result of developments
