Historical causes and strategies on the catastrophic floods of Changjiang River in 1998

Historical causes and strategies on the catastrophic floods of Changjiang River in 1998

Journal of Nanjing Forestry University 23(2): 42-46

A preliminary analysis of the situations, time and frequency of floods at different historical times, forest resources and soil erosion in the Changjiang River (Yangtze) watershed (China) is presented. The more frequently flooding occurred, the more dangerous the resulting disasters. The main causes were the decrease of forest coverage and degradation of forest quality, leading to a decline in the water retention and mitigating ability of forests.
