Development of innovative technologies for increasing in watershed runoff and improving river environment by the management practice of devastated forest plantation

Research Project Outline

We develop innovative management technologies of water resources which can induce leveling and maximizing water supply by increasing droughty water discharge. Our innovate approaches also promote improving issues around water quality and quantities in order to resolve intensified water problems in the next generation. Specifically, we conduct comprehensive field observation to monitor the effects of intensive thinning practices on runoff and water quality remediation in devastated forest plantations. Based on the field investigation and obtained data matrix, we apply water resources management model which quantifying the effectiveness of forest plantation management on water supply capacity of catchment.
