内容 研究概要:A simulation model is one of means representing and explaining complex systems. Recent progress in the field of environmental sciences has seen the development of many types of simulation models. Desertification is, however, a very complex system involving social factors such as economics as well as physical, chemical and biological processes. Therefore simulation models have rarely been applied to desertification phenomena. However, recent developments in computer engineering have made it possible to apply simulation models to a wider range of scientific fields. In this paper, we present an overview of past simulation models dealing with desertification phenomena, and discuss the possibilities and limits of their models. In addition, the present status of their models and the development of a simulation model of actual desertification in the semi-arid Kerqin Sandy Land of Inner Mongolia are presented.
