Dr. Wenyuan Wang
Associate Professor, State Key Laboratory Coastal and Offshore Engineering, Dalian University of Technology, China

Dr. Wenyuan Wang is currently an associate professor of the School of Hydraulic Engineering at the Dalian University of Technology (DLUT) in China. She got her bachelor degree in Harbour, Waterway and Coastal Engineering from DLUT in 2006, and then received master and doctoral degree in Harbour, Coastal and Offshore Engineering there in 2008 and 2012, respectively. During 2016 to 2017, she was a visiting scholar at the Hiroshima University in Japan. Her research interests are mainly concerned with port layout and planning, multimodal transportation system design, port-city relationship. She has received three national research grants, and authored more than 80 research papers and two monographs on port layout, construction and supply chain in the latest five years.

Speech Title: Impacts of land use structure changes on ecosystem service value in port-neighboring area
Abstract: With the rapid development of economic globalization and international trade, the demand for construction land in port area is also growing and showing a trend of diversification. The sprawl of port-neighboring area changed land use pattern, which brought a significant impact on ecosystem service value. In order to analyze the impact of land use structure changes on ecosystem service value, we proposed the calculation methods of ecosystem service value of gas regulation, water conservation and waste disposal based on land use features in port-neighboring area. The Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies were used to conduct the interpretation of remote sensing images, then the land use patterns of study area in different years were obtained. The authors analyzed the spatio-temporal dynamics of ecosystem service value and its driving factors based on the ecosystem service value evaluation of study area from 1999 to 2013. The results showed that the area of ecological lands reduced 50%, while the area of construction land increased 360%, the ecosystem service value of study area showed a loss of 52% from 1999 to 2013. It is found that there was a significant negative correlation between the ecosystem service value and the number of port berths and cargo throughput.
