Dongfeng has now joined Peking University as an Assistant Professor. I’m hiring a PhD student, 1-2 postdocs, and 2 research assistants, to work on 1) large-scale river water/sediment/carbon fluxes and channel change; 2) cryosphere change and related societal impacts. Please email me for details (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com). Postdoc advertising: https://cese.pku.edu.cn/rczp/bsh/149997.htm

Dongfeng gave a talk in the ‘Source-to-Sink Online Webinar Series’
Dongfeng gave a talk entitled ‘Impact of modern climate change on fluvial sediment delivery High Mountain Asia’, at the 2022 World Large River and Delta Systems Source-to-Sink Online Webinar Series. The recorded video is available (here).
Our study was cited in Nature to help explain the Italy glacier collapse
Our recent Nature Geoscience paper on climate-driven mountain landscape instability was cited by Nature to support potentially increasing glacier collapses in a rapidly changing climate. See details below and online: Glacier collapse: devise reliable warning systems “In July, 200,000 cubic metres of ice fell from Italy’s Marmolada glacier, causing 11 deaths. Glaciers and nearby slopes Read More…
Dongfeng gave an invited talk at Earth Observatory Singapore, NTU
Invited by Dr. Edward Park, Dongfeng gave a talk entitled ‘Climate change impacts on mountain landscapes and infrastructure: the case of High Mountain Asia’, at the Earth Observatory Singapore, Nanyang Technological University. The recorded video is available (here). The talk was mainly based to two recent publications: Li et al., 2021, Science; Li et al., Read More…

New paper out in Hydrological Processes!
Our new paper “Response of runoff components to climate change in the source-region of the Yellow River on the Tibetan Plateau” has been published in Hydrological Processes! It uses a fully distributed cryosphere-hydrological model and multi-decadal runoff observations to investigate the impacts of climate change on four runoff components (rainfall flow, snowmelt flow, glacier flow, Read More…
