  Since graduating from university has been engaged in local climate, climate changes, agricultural climate environment, ecological environment and other professional areas of learning and scientific research. The main achievements are, 1) to clarify the relationship between the occurrence and development of the cold air lakes and the fog and the relationship between the weather and the cold air lake and fog, and put forward a statistical model. 2) Developed a numerical model for the wind protection effect of the windbreak construction on the surface of the desert. At the same time, the model of Cs 137 was evaluated, and the quantitative evaluation model of non-cultivated land invasion was given. 3) It is pointed out that the climatic and environmental changes in arid regions of western China are winter warming, summer cooling and precipitation increase, mainly due to human activities to change the local climate. The fact of climate change indicates that there are two feedback between the ecological environment management and resource development and utilization in the western region. 4) The detailed observation of the dust generation process was successfully carried out in the desert area for the first time, which provided useful verification data for the dust numerical simulation model. 5) for the first time in the world high altitude areas of the plateau grassland ecosystem of CO2 flux observed, indicating that the current Qinghai-Tibet Plateau grassland is a significant source of CO2 absorption. 6) The rapid increase in the yield of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau will have a great impact on the degradation of the grassland. This study has aroused great repercussions in the IPCC 2007 report. 7) On the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, at high altitudes, two complete vertical slope observation observing sites were established, and for 13 years of continuous observation. In order to study the observation and simulation experiments on the global warming response of the plateau ecosystem ( Different altitude vegetation transplant experiments) provide the only reliable data at high altitudes.8) Carried out excellent numerical simulation research such as prevention of sand transportation by wind protection facility, gas and particle diffusion in the atmosphere, estimation of the distribution of the crossing rate by diffusion of pollen. Since 1993, a total of five Japanese-based international cooperation research projects have been held in Japan. And more than 200 papers published jointly with domestic and foreign partners.
