Vegetation / Land Use[edit]


Wudaogou Experimental Station, formerly known as Qinggou Runoff Experimental Station, was established in May 1953.

In 1963, the Wudaogou Central Experimental Station was added in the original basin, and the experimental facilities and personnel of Qinggou Station were successively concentrated in Wudaogou. Carry out more in-depth observation and experimental research on sand ginger black soil hydrology and water resources in Huaibei Plain. After that, the drainage experimental stations of Cuizhuang in Xiaoxian County and Suntulou in Guoyang were successively established, expanding the experimental area to the yellowish sandy loam area.

The Wudaogou Experimental Station was originally affiliated to the Huaihuai Management Committee of the Ministry of Water Resources, and later belonged to the Anhui Provincial Hydrological Station. After more than 60 years of development, the experimental station has advanced experimental equipment and strong scientific research strength.

Hydrological Knowledge Gained[edit]
