During July 1th and 11th, the Climate Change, Response and Adaption of Sensitive Ecosystems in Arid and Semi-Arid Area of North China Project, led by LZU’s academician Chen Fahu and funded by National Natural Science Foundation, conducted combined field trip. The project was led by LZU with the cooperation of Peking University, Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resource Research of CAS, Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology, to understand the process and mechanism of climate change in monsoon margin areas and the response and adaption of forest, lake and marshy ecosystem to climate change in these areas. 

The combined field trip focused on the main lakes and man-made forest in arid and semi-arid area of north China, including Beier Lake, Dali Lake and Daihai Lake, covering many provinces including Inner Mongolia, Liaoning and Hebei province with the journey of 4000 kilometers. The team made field trip on main lakes like Beier Lake, Dali Lake and Daihai Lake to make the team members further understand the hydrology, landscape and plants in the drainage basins, establish connections with relevant management institutes and promote the communication of members to create a better condition for the next project.
