Brief Introduction to Research Activity for Graduate Program
Novel catalysts and heterogeneous catalysis: Novel catalysts are
prepared using rare earth and natural clay as materials, and their
catalytic behavior for selective conversion natural gas and coal bed
gas (for example, selective oxidation of methane to methanol, DME,
oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane and propane to ethene and
propene respectively.) are investigated. For environmental protection,
the catalysts are used in the oxidation of carbon oxide in room under
room temperatures, the purification of volatile organic compounds in
air and automobile exhaust, as well as the synthesis of fine chemicals
Inorganic nano-materials and their application in catalysis:
Inorganic functional nano-materials are prepared and characterized.
Their applications in decoloration, adsorption, catalysis,
photo-catalysis are investigated.

The Natural Geography Program has been qualified to grant the Master‟s Degree in
2003, since then the program began to enroll its first group graduate candidates. It is the
only authorized program of Master‟s Degree in RS (Remote Sensing) and GIS (Geographic
Information Systems) in Inner Mongolia, with more than 30 graduate candidates. It has
been regarded as the base to foster talents of RS and GIS in Inner Mongolia,
The Natural Geography Program focuses on it research in the following 4 aspects:
Application of GIS, Redevelopment of GIS Software, UGIS (Urban Geographical Information
System), and Remote Sensing for Natural Resources and Environment.
There are two key laboratories for the major, Inner Mongolia Resource and
Environmental Information System key laboratory and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region
Remote Sensing and GIS key laboratory in the university. It is one of the member
organizations of CNC IGBP (Chinese National Society for the International
Geo-sphere-Biosphere Program), it is the Joint Research Center for International Mongolian
Plateau Environment and Sustainable Development, Central Laboratory for MAPGIS
Project, Certificating and Training centre of MAPGIS, member institute of Cartography and
Geography Information System of Chinese Geographical Social.
The program undertakes many research projects, among which 4 are funded by the
National Natural Science Foundation of China, 3 international cooperative projects, over 10
funded by Inner Mongolia Natural Science Foundation, and several horizontal research
projects. Due to the above research projects, Different information systems have been
established, the Territory Resources Information System, Forest Resource Management
Information System (Digital Forestry), Herdsmen Management Information System, Grass
Resources Management Information System, Soil Resources Management Information
System, Green Food Base Management Information System, Land Resources Management
Information System, and Sightseeing Resources Management Information System, etc. The
center has been the base of GIS Software Redevelopment, environment, natural disasters
monitoring and retrieving by remote sensing, and the centre of the 3S (remote sensing,
geographical information system, and global positioning system).
Large number of international exchange and cooperation have been done, and some
have had good results. Five international conferences were sponsored and held by the center,
and we participated in international conference held by others quite a number times. Good
partnership have been established with the Institute of Geographical Research of the
Mongolian Academy of Sciences, National University of Mongolia, Mongolia National
Normal University, the Institute of Geography & Ecology of the Mongolian Academy of
