内容 研究概要:Water will be transferred from Hanjiang river of the Yangtze River Basin to the North China Plain (NCP) for water supply. There are two planned large-scale long distance water transfer projects: the East Route, which could carry water from lower main course of the Yangtze (Changjiang) River to NCP, and the Middle route, which would divert water from the Hanjiang River, a major tributary of the Middle Yangtze to NCP, which is likely to be implemented in early 21st century. Both projected main canals are more than 1200km, passing through seven provinces and cities, and the annual total transferable water quantity would be more than 50 billion cubic meters. For the Middle Route, the calculated quantity of transferable water was based on hydrological records from the Hanjiang River. However it may not be assure under double carbon dioxide. It is well known that the Middle Route may be limited by transferable water from upper Hanjiang River. It is estimated that the regions along the main canal would become warm and dry and variability of water resources may increase. These would affect the syntonization/ asyntonization of water resources variations between the Yangtze River and the rivers with in NCP, and consequently would influence on the transferable water quantity and availability for water supply. The author addressed: first, to further study and to better understand such impact on available water, second, to quantitatively determine the magnitude of such impact, third, to adapt a model to evaluate such impact.
