In order to assess ecosystem changes in the TRHR during , we systematically and comprehensively evaluated a combination of model simulation results and actual observational data. A significant increase in precipitation during resulted in an obvious increase in annual and seasonal streamflow. Glacier melting also contributed to the streamflow increase. The increase in precipitation caused rainfall erosivity to increase, which enhanced the intensity of soil erosion.

The ecological restoration process after a natural disaster requires collaboration among the state, city and private sector. The constant threat of hazardous materials, erosion and water contamination require immediate action. Preventing erosion and assessing the level of water contamination are necessary. By using case studies as references, new alternative forms of ecological restoration can be practiced. Certain vegetation can be used to decrease the level of salinity in the floodwaters that inundate low-lying land after a tsunami or other flood event. As proven in many of these case studies, shoreline restoration can enhance local eco-systems.

The two ways to reverse this trend of habitat loss are conservation of currently viable habitat and restoration of degraded habitats. Landscape architects confront distressed and disturbed landscapes on a frequent basis. The ideal project involves a landscape architect from the beginning when proactive care is taken to protect the site and existing vegetation. However, the ideal often meets with the circumstantial when the LA is enlisted after key site planning decisions are made or even following the commencement of construction; new buildings, infrastructure or site work often leave a wake of destruction to soils, plantings, and natural drainage patterns.
In the past two decades, the supratidal wetland in the Yellow River Delta experienced severe saline-alkalization and vegetation degradation. Restoration with enclosure-freshwater release mode has prevailed since This method presented some positive effects, but need a massive freshwater supply. Furthermore, the subsequent formed single Phragmites australis vegetation weakened the bird habitation function. In this study, we developed another restoration mode based on microtopography modification.
