Surface water chemical changes due to human activities in the Tarim Basin

  • Wei Zhongyi
I. General Impacts of Human Population Growth on Inland Waters (a) China, Nepal, Hong Kong, Japan


Based on the distribution pattern of the surface water chemical characteristics of the Tarim Basin with time and space, the impact of human activities is analysed. The effect of building large water projects and large-scale reclaiming on the Tarim River and Lake Bosten is especially considered.
