New paper out in WRR: modelling suspended sediment in cold environments

Our new paper “Constraining Dynamic Sediment-Discharge Relationships in Cold Environments: the Sediment-Availability-Transport (SAT) Model” has been published in WRR! See here For the first time, we modelled the time-varying sediment availability in cold environments by integrating the factor of basin temeprature. It highlights three key points: Glacier-snow-permafrost melting elevates sediment availability by enlarging erodible landscapes and enhancing Read More…

Dongfeng recently talked in S2S and EGU

In February 2021, Dongfeng gave an online talk on sediment fluxes in High Mountain Asia in the ”World River and Delta Systems: Source to Sink Webinar Series”. The recorded video is available on Youtube and Bilibli. In May 2021, Dongfeng gave a highlighted talk in EGU2021  The poster file is below.

New paper out in Water Resources Research

My paper “Air temperature regulates erodible landscape, water and sediment fluxes in the permafrost-dominated catchment on the Tibetan Plateau“ has been published in WRR! See here It is well-known that the Tibetan Plateau has the largest Alpine permafrost in the world, yet its impact on riverine water discharge and sediment fluxes have been overlooked by previous Read More…

About me

Dongfeng Li is a Research Fellow in the Department of Geography, National University of Singapore. He has submitted his Ph.D. thesis in May 2021 (NUS). His research focuses on climate change and sediment fluxes in High Mountain Asia, which is also called the Asian Water Towers or the Third Pole. You may want to follow Read More…
