unapi

The historical records of water level measurement not only reflect levels of hydrological science and technology,but also form an important part of disaster response. Based on the recognition of the characteristics of water level change process records of the Wanjintan in the middle reaches of Yellow River,and the management system of flood defense and reporting in the Qing Dynasty,this paper concludes that the system of flood reporting on the basis of water records was a specific way of natural disaster warning behavior actively employed in traditional society. There are a lot of clear requirements in the management records of the Yellow River,such as detailed prevention regulations,specific work tasks and implementation. The research uncovers the relationship of spatiotemporal synergy between risk awareness,human responses and environmental safety and the traditional social system under the Qing Dynasty.
