He also listed some successful cases and specific experience in the management of lake eutrophication through the comparison of various treatment methods in Europe.    

He compared the characteristics of lakes and the differences in trophic levels in different climate zones, thus pointing the effects of climate change on the development of lake eutrophication and the new challenges of lake governance.

He mainly focused on the study of water Ecology and lake restoration, especially in the control of eutrophication. He has published over 600 papers, the citations of his papers in the ISI WEB reference - more than 20000 times (Google cited more than 40000 times).
