Full description: 

This book highlights the development of lake systems and water reservoirs as well as the impact of climate change on water resources in Central Asian countries. It provides information on the genesis of lake basins, physical and chemical properties of water in lakes, and the hydrological regimes (water balance and fluctuation levels) of lakes of Central Asia and Xinjiang. The book is useful for scientists and researchers whose work focuses on lakes and the use of natural resources, irrigation, hydropower and water supply, as well as for students and planners.

Biography: 

Jilili Abuduwaili is a professor at Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Arid Land ; Editor in chief of the Arid Land Geography and Arid Land Research journals (both in Uyghur language); Editorial Board Member of the journal Arid ecosystems and Soil Science and Agrochemistry. His research interests are in the area of resource environment in arid region, eco-security and change in landscape as well as cooperative research between Russia and countries in Central Asia. Dr. Gulnura Issanova obtained her PhD in Natural Sciences. Currently she is a researcher at U. U. Uspanov Kazakh Research Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry and a Scientific Secretary at Research Centre of Ecology and Environment of Central Asia (Almaty). Her research interests are focused on soil degradation and desertification problems, in particular the role of dust and sand storms in land/soil degradation. Dr. Galymzhan Saparov is the head of the Department of Soil Ecology at U. U. Uspanov Kazakh Research Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry, as well as head of laboratory at the Research Centre of Ecology and Environment of Central Asia (Almaty), Kazakhstan. He graduated from Kazakh Agricultural Institute in 1995 and holds a PhD degree from U.U. Uspanov Kazakh Research Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry. His research is focused on problems of soil degradation and remediation of disturbed lands.
