About the Author

Professor Xiangzheng Deng is a senior research fellow from the Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His research areas include Land-Use/Land Cover Change, Hydrology, Ecosystem Service, Urbanization and Global Environmental Change and Regional Sustainable Development. He has published more than one hundred pieces of papers. As a leading scientist, he is presiding over quite a lot of projects including the grants from Natural Science Foundation of United States, Natural Sciences Foundation of China, Ministry of Science and Technology of China, etc. He develops a couple of models, e.g., Dynamics of Land System (DLS) model, Computable General Equilibrium of Land Use Change (CGELUC) model and Dynamic Agricultural Production (DynaAP) model, which are capable of simulating the dynamics and consequences of land system changes and which are widely used in land planning and environment planning.

Table of Contents

Climatic numerical modeling and research overview of climatic impact of land use/cover change.- Observation of the effects of land use changes on regional surface temperatures, precipitation and larger-scale atmospheric circulation.- Parameterization of surface processes induced by land use changes and minimization of the uncertainties of the simulations through GCM and RCM.- Systematic approach for modeling the impacts of both greenhouse gases and land use changes.- Estimation of human-caused land changes on redistributing atmospheric heat regionally and globally.- Prediction and scenario analyses of land use changes and their influences on regional and global climate changes.
