Paper Abstract

Qira Oasis lies in the southern region of the Tarim Basin, and on the northern slope of the Kunlun Mountains. It is one of the areas which show the obvious evolution of an ecological environment, and has been intruded upon by human activities in the last 50 years, so it has became a target area for researching, exploiting, and utilizing water resources in the oasis. Based on groundwater formation in the Qira Oasis, this paper will study the prosess of yearly and seasonal groundwater variation and analyze the relationship between groundwater variation and the eco-environment of the surface.
