Shiyin Liu

   Professor Liu joined the Institute of International Rivers and Eco-security, Yunnan University in the 2017. He was previously a full professor worked at the Northwest Institute of Eco-environment and Resources, the Chinese Academy of Sciences before March, 2017. His research is centered around glaciology and mainly concentrates on remote sensing of glaciers and snow cover, glacial hydrology, glacial lake outburst floods. He has led the compilation of the second inventory of Chinese glaciers. His investigation also covers the response of outburst floods from a glacier-dammed lake in Tianshan and morained-dammed lakes in Himalaya to climate change and their potential hazards. He has studied the impact of glacier meltwater runoff and its change based on energy-mass-balance model and hydrological model coupled with glacier scaling model.   He is currently working on mass change of glaciers in China by application of remote sensing and GIS as well as glacier dynamic model. Being lead investigator, he has chaired and is chairing some projects sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Natural Science Foundation, Chinese Academy of Sciences and other funding agencies. He has been a council member of the International Glaciological Society and is a member of the working group of Randolph Glacier Inventory of the International Association of Cryospheric Science. He is serving as scientific editors of the Journal of Mountain Science, Journal of Arid Land, Advances of Climate Change Research, and some journals in Chinese. He is also an active reviewer of renowned international journals and that in Chinese. He has been awarded by the national scientific and technological awarding committee and Gansu Provincial committee for scientific and technological achievement. Being a professor in Yunnan University, he focuses his interest in hydrological processes  and potential hazards from snow cover and glaciers in rivers originated from the Hindu Kush-Karakoram-Himalaya-Hengduan Mountains.
