Using the method of literature metrology, this paper collects the papers on Benggang from Chinese Science and Technology Journal Database, Chinese Journal Full-text Database, China Masters’ Theses Full-text Database and China Doctoral Dissertations Full-text Database. It statistically analyzes these research papers on Benggang during the 31 years (1984-2014) in China from the publishing years, journal types, author groups, study areas, and research contents. The paper reveals the history of Benggang research in China, showing that the research in the country began early but has developed slowly, and at present it is characterized by more qualitative descriptions while fewer dynamic monitoring, the number of the research papers on Benggang changes from fluctuating development to stable growth. Besides, it can be imagined that Benggang erosion process monitoring and the mechanism of Water and Soil coupling would be the research focus in the next few years. Meanwhile Benggang research combined with modern technology such as remote sensing dynamic monitoring technology and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle technology would become the new trend. In addition, the studies of Benggang process simulation experiment and new treatment technologies in Benggang would also become the main aspects of further research
