The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Hydrology, Sediment, Progradation, Estuary and River delta. The study of Hydrology is intertwined with the study of Sedimentary budget in a number of ways. The concepts of his Sediment study are interwoven with issues in Drainage basin, Spartina alterniflora, Salt marsh and Wetland.
His work deals with themes such as Intertidal zone and Surface runoff, which intersect with Wetland. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Progradation, concentrating on Erosion and intersecting with Trend surface analysis and Coastal management. His study looks at the relationship between Estuary and topics such as Marsh, which overlap with Discharge, River mouth, Submersion and Oceanography.
Shilun Yang mainly investigates Hydrology, Sediment, Estuary, Oceanography and Salt marsh. Many of his research projects under Hydrology are closely connected to River delta with River delta, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His studies deal with areas such as Channel, Current, Deforestation and Erosion as well as Sediment.
His work focuses on many connections between Estuary and other disciplines, such as River mouth, that overlap with his field of interest in High marsh, Discharge and Storm. His Salt marsh study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Vegetation and Spartina alterniflora, Marsh, Wetland. His work carried out in the field of Progradation brings together such families of science as Bathymetry and Sand mining.
His main research concerns Hydrology, Sediment, Erosion, Oceanography and Accretion. Shilun Yang combines subjects such as Sediment transport and River mouth with his study of Hydrology. His research in Sediment intersects with topics in Estuary, Tidal range and Progradation.
His research integrates issues of Three gorges and Sea level in his study of Erosion. His work in the fields of Salt marsh and Water mass overlaps with other areas such as Pacific decadal oscillation. His Accretion research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Intertidal zone and Wind wave.
Sediment, Hydrology, Erosion, Sediment transport and River delta are his primary areas of study. His Estuary research extends to the thematically linked field of Sediment. His studies in Erosion integrate themes in fields like Channel, Structural basin and Three gorges.
The Three gorges study combines topics in areas such as Sea level, River mouth and Bathymetry. His studies examine the connections between Sediment transport and genetics, as well as such issues in Current, with regards to Sorting, Tidal range, Wave height, Sedimentary budget and Coastal erosion. His Sand mining study incorporates themes from Land reclamation, Salt marsh, Wetland and Fluvial.
