Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Environmental Change & Ecological Construction, managed by the School of Geography Science of Nanjing Normal University, was approved by the Education Department of Jiangsu Province in 2005. After 5 years endeavor and construction, the laboratory successfully passed the provincial assessment on 2010. It regards geographic environment and ecological system as main research focus, and devotes to investigate paleoenvironment evolution, surface environment change, man-land interaction, ecological constructions and restorations, and costal and ocean explorations and conservations.

The lab currently have 54 members, including 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2 members of the Ministry of Education Cheung Kong Scholars and 3 NSFC Distinguished Young Scholars, 1 National Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award, 1 NSFC Excellent Young Scholar, 1 Ministry of Education Yangze Scholars Innovation Team, and 1 National Teaching Team of Modern Geographical Science. With the excellent foundation of our personnel and state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, the lab has recently undertaken many projects, for instance, research plans of "863" and "973" and projects from the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and achieved a series of results that have international influence.So far, members in this lab have published papers in the most influential journal such as “Science”, “Nature”, and “PNAS”, and some of them have been cited more than 1000 times. Moreover, the team led by professor Wang Yongjinwon the second prize of National Science Award on 2015. Overall, the lab is becoming an international academic paradise that researchers favor and students aspire to join, and continues to serve as an important base for related research and personnel training.
