Yinjun Zhao

Former Postdoc/Visiting Scholar | Research Analyst, China Renewable Energy Engineering Institute

Yinjun is interested in interdisciplinary research among river system, spatial modeling, GIS and RS to understand the differences of river types. Currently, he proposed a new decision classifier (DCF) to classify rivers for Chinese river management based on existing classification systems. Aimed at river function management, the DCF with the five-layers frame was developed on reach level in a spatially nested pattern that from top to bottom are natural province, basin, valley, reach, habitat and microhabitat. Finally, he is developing software to automate the classification process to promote DCF application.
