Water quality is the critical factor that influence on human health and quantity and quality of grain production in semi-humid and semi-arid area. Songnen plain is one of the grain bases in China, as well as one of the three major distribution regions of soda saline-alkali soil in the world. To assess the water quality, surface water and groundwater were(More)
Groundwater resources are increasingly exploited for industrial and agricultural purposes in many arid regions globally, it is urgent to gain the impact of the enhanced anthropogenic pressure on the groundwater chemistry. The aim of this study was to acquire a comprehensive understanding of the evolution of groundwater chemistry and to identify the impact(More)
Groundwater within the coastal aquifer systems of the Daweijia area in northeastern China is characterized by a large of variations (33-521mg/L) in NO3(-) concentrations. Elevated nitrate concentrations, in addition to seawater intrusion in the Daweijia well field, both attributable to anthropogenic activities, may impact future water-management practices.(More)
The characteristics of nitrate (NO(3)(-)) in major rivers and aquifers of the Sanjiang Plain, China were investigated by hydrogeochemical conditions, nitrogen isotope technique and CFCs trace. An overall understanding on the sources and fate of NO(3)(-) in the surface water and the groundwater was obtained. The NO(3)(-) concentrations in the surface water(More)
Fertilization and water both affect root water uptake in the nutrient and water cycle of the Soil-Plant-Atmosphere-Continuum (SPAC). In this study, dual stable isotopes (D and (18)O) were used to determine seasonal variations in water uptake patterns of summer maize under different fertilization treatments in Beijing, China during 2013-2014. The(More)
The evaluation of the field water cycle under deficit irrigation plays an important role in studying mechanism of field water dynamics, optimization of agricultural water management strategies, and assessment of regional water resources. In this study, the agro-hydrological Soil–Water–Atmosphere–Plant (SWAP) model was used to evaluate the field water cycle(More)
In semi-arid regions, most human activities occur in alluvial fan areas; however, NO3(-) pollution has greatly threatened the shallow groundwater quality. In this paper, δ(15)N-NO3(-) and multi-tracers were used to identify the origin and fate of NO3(-) in groundwater of the Baiyangdian lake watershed, North China Plain. The investigation was conducted in(More)
Bowen ratio and energy balance (BREB) method is used to measure the evapotranspiration of mixed bush and grass in headwater region of North China Plain. The results show that it is hard to observe the long-term data by BREB. To analyze the diurnal variation in the energy balance, three days (DOY 225, clear day; DOY 228, cloudy, fog in the morning, and 0.2mm(More)
In this study, an approach is put forward to study the relationship between changing land use and groundwater nitrate contamination in the Sanjiang Plain. This approach emphasizes the importance of groundwater residence time when relating the nitrates to the changing land use. The principles underlying the approach involve the assessment of groundwater(More)
