Research Interests:

  • ┬áThe morphodynamic processes of tidal creeks in short-term cyclic developments of tidal mudflats in the Yangtze Estuary.
  • The role of waves, including the wind wave, summer typhoons and winter storms, in shaping the tidal mudflats and their morphodynamics in the Yangtze Estuary
  • The hydrodynamic and sediment transport processes within the tidal creeks and their importance in tidal flat formation and development.
  • The response of the tidal mudflats to the runoff variation and river-born sediment reduction.
