A Study of the Kumtag Desert, This monograph summarizes the significance of the expedition to the Kumtag Desert and integrates the research results made previously. It analyzes the geological background and the arid environment evolution processes of the Later Cenozoic Era and shows the age and evolution history of the formation of the Kumtag Desert. It illustrates both the patterns and distribution of Aeolian landforms, and the formation and development processes of feather-like longitudinal dunes. It describes briefly primary climate regime, climate change characteristics as well as hydrological process and water resource use of the Kumtag Desert. The book also discusses the flora and the types of botanical community, the fauna, typical animal distribution as well as biodiversity protection. Based on remote sensing data, this monograph analyzes desert development dynamics and regional landscape patterns. As a conclusion, it presents strategies on ecological preservation, sustainable development and management of the Kumtag Desert.
