Abstract
Lakes are the crucial features of the global ecosystem, although they contribute a tiny segment of the ground surface. Due to environmental impact and global climate change, these surface water carrying systems face surviving challenges and become fragile. The Three Gorges Dam is one of the world's largest power generating dam situated in China. In this study, the effect of the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River and Poyang Lake, the biggest freshwater lake in China, will be investigated. The influence of dam over the water discharge and water level of the Yangtze River and Poyang Lake will be determined. The impacts of these changes into those two hydrological entities will be examined, and the consequent environmental and societal effects will be discussed. The historical data will be analyzed to demonstrate the impact.
