Strategic Research on Optimization of Ecological Waterfront Landscape with Sustainability


the paper takes Wuhan, a historic city rich in resources in China, as an example to study the issue on how to effectively cope with the special climate problems associated with hot summer and cold winter regions. It is a study based on the global water shortage and people's growing concern about protecting and reviving the safe patters of waterfront landscape based on EI construction and making good use of the water resources in Wuhan to improve the local climate.

The paper deals with the special geographical features of Wuhan as a water abundant area and the fact that it is hot in summer and cold in winter. The writer proposes a scientific method applying landscape ecology to improve such a climate situation in Wuhan by ways such as hardening the wetland, building an integrated eco-system between water and wetland, using cooling and heating by soil and sub terrain soil, building a wind guiding system through plant clustering, studying the differences between different landscape elements and the study of reviving the water ecological system. It is hoped that the present climate condition in Wuhan can be tremendously improved through these measures which can change the microclimate circle and revive a comparatively integrated multi eco-system.
