The tourism industry has an obvious promoting effect on national economic growth, and it is a modern economic form to promote economic and social development. Since Japan implemented the policy of establishing a country through tourism in 2003, the tourism industry has developed rapidly and made remarkable achievements. Based on the push-pull theory, this paper analyzes the reasons for the development of the Japanese tourism industry from two aspects of push and pull. In the push factors, this paper analyzes the relationship between per capita GDP and tourism consumption and then based on the latest Japanese official market survey data, through the analysis of specialization coefficient to clarify the specific push factors and trends of all age groups in Japan. The push factors, it is analyzed from the four aspects of “government behavior”, “non-governmental organizations”, “tourism resources” and “tourism environment” to reveal the concept and path of expanding the space of tourism development in Japan.

Shale oil is a key area of unconventional oil development and is expected to become a new growth point of oil production in the future. Jiyang Depression is a secondary basin located in the southeast of Bohai Bay Basin. The shale strata in Jiyang Depression are mainly developed in the Upper 4th Member of Shahejie Formation, the Lower 3rd Member of Shahejie Formation, and the 1st Member of Shahejie Formation in Paleogene. In the past 10 years of exploration practice, Jiyang Depression has made breakthroughs in many layers and various types of shale oil, showing a good exploration prospect of shale oil in Jiyang Depression. Based on previous studies, this paper discussed the characteristics of effective source rocks in Jiyang Depression from four aspects: (1) geochemical characteristics, (2) distribution characteristics, (3) lithologic structure characteristics, and (4) hydrocarbon expulsion characteristics. This paper is expected to provide a reference for the exploration and development of shale oil in Jiyang Depression.
[Review Paper] Research progress in the evaluation of structural characteristics for tight oil reservoirs

Advances in Resources Research, 2023, 3(1), 1-16. DOI: 10.50908/arr.3.1_1
Tight oil is the accumulation of oil trapped in the shale formation or transported to the interlayer in a very short distance. Tight oil has a broad prospect of exploration and development and has become an important replacement resource for conventional oil resources. The evaluation of structural characteristics of tight oil reservoirs is the hot spot and frontier of tight oil research. However, tight oil resources are formed uniquely, and their characteristics are different from those of conventional oil resources. The study on the structural characteristics of tight oil reservoirs is helpful to deepen the scientific understanding of tight oil reservoir systems. This paper reviews the main progress made in the evaluation of structural characteristics of tight oil reservoirs in recent years. The purpose of this paper is to deepen the systematic understanding of tight oil reservoir structure and enrich the understanding of the occurrence law and enrichment mechanism of tight oil resources, to promote the geological evaluation, exploration, and development of tight oil resources.
[Review Paper] Present situation and development trend of water drive development technology in the oil field: Take China as an example

Water drive development is the most widely used and mature oil field development technology. Water drive development includes water flooding (water injection) and water injection huff and puff. The main reasons for the broad application of water drive development include: (1) injected water can drive crude oil wells, (2) water can be injected into strata relatively easily to increase reservoir energy, and (3) water resources have lower investment and operation costs. The driving development of more and more oilfields in China has entered the middle and high water cut stage, and the proportion of low-grade reservoirs with low permeability and low abundance is getting higher and higher, which makes the development more difficult. How to improve the effectiveness of the water drive and improve the efficiency of water drive is the key problem to be solved in oilfield water drive development. At the same time, under the condition of complex injection-production relationships and frequent dynamic changes of the displacement field, it can effectively tap the potential of remaining oil and improve the development effect of water drive, which puts forward higher requirements for water drive development technology. This paper summarizes the present situation of water-drive development technology in Chinese oilfields and puts forward some suggestions for the future development trend.
[Review Paper] Advances in impacts of climate change on rice in China
Published: April 18, 2022
Advances in Resources Research, 2022, 2(2), 67-76. DOI: 10.50908/arr.2.2_67
Climate change has a serious impact on the food crop ecosystem. Rice is not only an important food crop for human beings, but also one of the food crops sensitive to climate change. The research progress on the effects of climate change on rice in China is reviewed in this paper. Climate change significantly shifted the planting boundary of rice to the north, which shortened the growth and development period of rice, and then decreased the overall planting yield and quality of rice. The adverse effects of climate change can be dealt with through the adjustment of planting distribution, variety improvement, and technological improvement. In the future, climate change will further affect rice production. It is still necessary to strengthen the research on the impact mechanism of climate change and countermeasures to promote and ensure the sustainable development of rice. The purpose of this paper is to provide a reference for the assessment of the impact of climate change on rice and the sustainable development of rice.

Crude oil is a mixture of various hydrocarbons and is classified as light oil or heavy oil. Heavy oil is considered to have a high development value, comparable to the residual recoverable reserves of light oil worldwide. Reducing development costs and maximizing heavy oil recovery from underground are common challenges for the oil industry. There are two methods for recovering heavy oil: thermal recovery and non-thermal recovery. This paper explains the development technology and technical points of heavy oil.
