    In order to evaluate the effects of the middle route of China's south-to-north water transfer project (MR-SNWTP) on water bloom in the middle-down stream of Hanjiang River, according to the analytical results about the reasons and key factors for Hanjiang's water bloom,the probability of Hanjiang's water bloom are analyzed qualitatively.The probability of Hanji-ang's water bloom are calculated quantitatively by applying hydrodynamic model and dynamic model of eutrophication as well as stochastic analogy method,and the corresponding prevention countermeasures are provided.The results indicate that the probability of water bloom in Hanji-ang River will increase when the 145×108m3 scheme of MR-SNWTP is implemented,but building the diversion work from Yangtze River to Hanjiang River will markedly decrease the probability of water bloom in Hanjiang River.The water pollution control of Hanjiang River itself is the most fundamental measure to reduce the probability of Hanjiang's water bloom.The joint regulation of increasing discharge from Danjiangkou Reservoir and decreasing discharge from Sanxia Power Station during drought period will reduce the probability of Hanjiang's water bloom.

    The Loess Plateau Region of the farming-pastoral zone in northern China is considered as an ecologically sensitive area due to its special landscape pattern and varied regional water reg-imes.Based on the ecological regionalization of suitable trees,shrubs and herbages for vegetation restoration in the farming-pastoral zone of northern China,this paper firstly graded the spatial and temporal variations of water regimes through calculating the Regional Water Stress Index (RWSI) from 1989 to 2000.Meanwhile,combining with the classification map of land use and cover type in the Region,the paper then mainly analyzed the relationship between the spatial and temporal variations of water regimes and the different land use and cover types,through setting up an index RIWD(Risk Index of Water Deficit)concerning agricultural,pastoral and forestry production in the whole Region and within its each ecological sub-region.The results of the analyses show that:(1)from 1989 to 2000,the water deficit in the Region existed over time, though the variation range of the RWSI of the study area was diminishing;(2)comparing the RWSI of 1999 with that of 1989,the water deficit of the whole study area was abated a little,yet there were spatial variati-ons within every ecological sub-region,which meant in some places the water deficit was still serious;(3)for the whole study area,the order of RIWD for every main land use type,from high to low,was woodland,arable land and grassland,implying its conditions favorable for pastoral practices;and (4)because of the spatial and temporal variations of the water regimes caused by t-he complicated geographical features in the Region,the RIWD was obviously different and the sequence of it varied somewhat among the ecological sub-regions.

    Based on investigations of the hydrologic characteristics of the Shule River basin,studies of the hydro-chemical properties of the basin are mainly carried out in this paper.Most of the sections of the Shule River are dominated with HCO3- in anions and Ca2+ in cations,with orders in milligram equivalent percentage of HCO3ˉ >Cl- >SO42- in anion and Ca2+ >Mg2+>Na++K+ in cation.However,different orders occur in the lower reaches of the Danghe,namely,HCO3-> Cl-> SO42- in anion and Ca2+ >Na++K+>Mg2+ in cation.According to conventional hydro-geological methods,three types of river water,i.e.,bicarbonate,sulfate and chloride,can be classified by taking the major aqueous anions and cations milligram equivalents as criteria.Tests show that most samples belong to bicarbonate types.According to the sampling test,the total mineralization of the river water varies between 256 and 414mg/l,total hardness ranges between 3.37 and 7.16me/l,and total alkalinity,between 2.62 and 4.25me/l. This paper also studies and analyses the concentrations of the trace elements of the river water in the Shule River basin and makes an assessment of the water quality of the region.Suggestions and countermeasures on water conservation are also presented.

    The welfare served by croplands has been underestimated.Besides supplying food and providing straw,croplands support many other functions and services such as nutrients transforming,pollination,biological control,supplying beautiful scenery,recreation,and so on.In this study,we examined the gas regulation services supported by rice paddy ecosystems,based on the results of field experiments in Wusi Farm of Shanghai in 2002.And the values of gas regulation by paddy rice ecosystems with different N-fertilization treatments were also estimated with ecological economics methods.The results indicated that two kinds of gas regulation were provided by paddy fields:one was O2 emission,and the other was Greenhouse Gases(GHGs) regulation(including CO2 uptake,CH4 and N2O emission).First,in the cultivation period,O2 emission of rice paddy ecosystems ranged from 1.65×104kg·hm-2 to 3.85×104kg·hm-2 along with increment of N fertilizer application,and the values ranged from 6.22×103yuan·hm-2 to 11.87×103yuan·hm-2 in the same trend.Second,rice paddy ecosystems emitted GHGs,but also fixed CO2 from atmosphere.In CO2 equivalent,the quantities of GHGs regulation ranged from -997kgCO2-C·hm-2 to 2 787kgCO2-C·hm-2,and the values ranged from -751yuan·hm-2 to 2 098yuan·hm-2.Third,the integrated values of gas regulation by rice paddy ecosystems ranged from 5 467yuan·hm-2 to 1.28×104yuan·hm-2.In this study,we are trying to provide a fair method to evaluate the values of croplands,to support an effective way to recognize the welfare served by croplands,especially by paddy fields and to promote the sustainability of cropland ecosystems and yet the sustainability of human kinds.

    Using a multiple-destination-based zonal travel cost method to evaluate the recreational benefits of Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve
    ZHANG Yin, CAI Yun-long
    2004, 19 (5):  651-661.  doi: 10.11849/zrzyxb.2004.05.016

    TCM (travel cost method) is one of the classic methods to value the recreational benefits of outdoor recreational resources.Existing TCM include three basic models:ZTCM (Zonal TCM),ITCM (Individual TCM) and RUM (Random Utility Method).Although these three models have rather matured,none of them could offer perfect solutions to the widely existing multiple destination problem,which makes it a difficulty and hotspot in TCM studies.Analysts have approached this problem in a few different ways,yet multiple destination trips,especially long vacation trips,remain difficult to work into conventional models in a convincing way. Due to the the biforked structure of travel costs of Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve,the paper forwards a new method-MZTC (multiple-destination-based zonal travel cost method) which combines Mendelsohn et al.'s(1992) "portfolio of sites"model and travel cost separation methods,to value the recreational benefits of Jiuzhaigou in 2002.In this analysis,individuals are viewed as selecting a "portfolio of sites" for a trip,and each portfolio is viewed as a separate commodity with its own demand equation.Jiuzhaigou's share of travel cost in each portfolio is computed according to the entrance fee,and its share of consumer surplus calculated.The mean consumer surplus is 37.77,93.30,618.36 and 733.66 yuan per person respectively for'nearby-Jiuzhaigou','nearby-Jiuzhaigou & Huanglong','distant-Jiuzhaigou & Huanglong' and 'distant-Jiuzhaigou, Huanglong, Ermeishan and Leshan' subsamples.It can be seen that distance exerts an extraordinarily important effect on the estimates,and that for subsamples with similar distances,the consumer surplus goes up with the increase of the destinations in the'portfolio of sites'and decrease of Jiuzhaigou's comparative share of trip cost in each portfolio.Then all the shares of consumer surplus are added up,with an outcome of 471 million yuan for total tourists,or 375.92 yuan per person,which is rather similar to the mean sight-seeing value of Rosenberger and Loomis' (2001) up-to-date review on outdoor recreation valuations in America and Canada.The total value is then further calculated plus actual travel costs,with an outcome of 1 246.10 yuan per person.

    A new method based on water balance equation is proposed to calculate ecological water consumption.It is based on the data of precipitation instead of local water resources,which makes the method unique to other traditional methods.By using this new approach,based on the data of precipitation,river water flow to sea,water diverted from the Yellow River,groundwater overexploitation,industrial water use,agricultural water use,domestic water use,industry wastewater drainage and domestic wastewater discharge,the ecological water consumption from 1954 to 1998 is calculated for the Haihe River basin.It is interesting to see that although the catchment had incurred the tremendous environmental changes since the 1970s,the total ecological water consumption did not show obvious trend of increasing or decreasing.This is in agreement with the documented conclusion that the change of canopy transpiration may be compensated by the change of soil evaporation,resulting in the unchanged trend of total evapotranspiration.Comparative study shows that the ecological water consumption defined in this paper is a generic ecological water consumption including soil evaporation,vegetation evapotranspiration and so on.Due to the great buffer of the nature,it is not sensitive to separated environmental changes one by one. On the other hand,the ecological water consumption calculated by local water resources has a narrower meaning,representing only those part of water consumed from water resources in order to realize ecological function.

    Based on MTCLIM Model,according to actual conditions of China,parameters of the model were optimized and adjusted and the model for calculating global solar radiation was set up based on temperature,precipitation and relative humidity in China.As for the proposed spatialization model of global solar radiation,parameterization should be done first and interpolation second.Considering the big workload of spatialization of daily global solar radiation,based on calculating monthly mean daily result,it is suggested to use liner interpolation technology to get a quick spatialization value of the daily global radiation.Finally,the spatial distribution of daily global radiation in China was generated.
