Progress in Environmental Sciences and Technology in the Yangtze River Basin, China

New Content Item

This is an article collection published in Environmental Sciences Europe.

The Yangtze River is one of the most well known rivers in the world. It has a rich history and is of great importance to China's people. As the longest river in Asia, it serves as a lifeline to millions of people and various inhabiting ecosystems. Accordingly, the progress in research on environmental sciences and technology in the Yangtze River Basin is essential in promoting more advanced development in related fields. This collection aims to better bridge these scientific and technological achievements on a global scale that are relevant to the Yangtze River Basin.

Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

  • pollution status
  • environmental effects of pollutants
  • pollution control and treatment
  • environmental management
  • hydrological changes due to human activities
