Abstract

Based on a comparative study of the social economic development and the water resources characteristics in 13 arid inland basins of north-western China, it is pointed out that oasis will move from lower reach to upper reach in the circumstances of lower water availability per capita and poorer social economic structures. A significant ecological warning line and warning interval of oasis evolvement are given by synthesizing evidence of social economic development and water resources characteristics. Applying the criterion, the quantitative water resource carrying capacities are evaluated for those basins with water availability per capita less than 3000m3.
