Scenario Simulation and Intelligent Management and Regulation on Building of a Beautiful China


Ecological protection and green development in the Yangtze River basin are critical to the ecological construction of a Beautiful China. This study analyzes the current situation and main problems of the water ecology in the Yangtze River basin, and introduces the development of the Yangtze River Simulator, and the design for the ecological operation of the Three Gorges Reservoir, the main river, and the lakes connected to the river. Through the simulation of the main stream water ecology and lake water ecology by the Yangtze River Simulator, the optimization plan for the ecological regulation of the Three Gorges Reservoir was obtained, and specific suggestions for the ecological regulation of the Three Gorges Reservoir and the development of river simulator in future are put forward.
