  • Data of soil organic matter in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (1979-1985)

    Data of soil organic matter in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (1979-1985)

    The data include soil organic matter data of Tibetan Plateau , with a spatial resolution of 1km*1km and a time coverage of 1979-1985.The data source is the soil carbon content generated from the second soil census data.Soil organic matter mainly comes from plants, animals and microbial residues, among which higher plants are the main sources.The organisms that first appeared in the parent material of primitive soils were microorganisms.With the evolution of organisms and the development of soil forming process, animal and plant residues and their secretions become the basic sources of soil organic matter.The data is of great significance for analyzing the ecological environment of Tibetan Plateau

    This dataset contains the flux measurements from the Qinghai Lake eddy covariance system (EC) belonging to the Qinghai Lake basin integrated observatory network from January 1 to December 31 in 2021. The site (100° 29' 59.726'' E, 36° 35' 27.337'' N) was located on the Yulei Platform in Erlangjian scenic area, Qinghai Province. The elevation is 3209m. The EC was installed at a height of 16.1m, and the sampling rate was 10 Hz. The sonic anemometer faced north, and the separation distance between the sonic anemometer and the CO2/H2O gas analyzer (Gill&Li7500A) was about 0.17 m. The raw data acquired at 10 Hz were processed using the Eddypro post-processing software, including the spike detection, lag correction of H2O/CO2 relative to the vertical wind component, sonic virtual temperature correction, coordinate rotation (2-D rotation), corrections for density fluctuation (Webb-Pearman-Leuning correction), and frequency response correction. The EC data were subsequently averaged over 30 min periods. The observation data quality was divided into three classes according to the quality assessment method of stationarity (Δst) and the integral turbulent characteristics test (ITC): class 1-3 (high quality), class 4-6 (good), class 7-8 (poor, better than gap filling data), class9 (rejected). In addition to the above processing steps, the half-hourly flux data were screened in a four-step procedure: (1) data from periods of sensor malfunction were rejected; (2) data collected before or after 1 h of precipitation were rejected; (3) incomplete 30 min data were rejected when the missing data constituted more than 3% of the 30 min raw record; and (4) data were rejected at night when the friction velocity (u*) was less than 0.1 m/s. There were 48 records per day, and the missing data were replaced with -6999. The released data contained the following variables: DATE/TIME, wind direction (Wdir, °), wind speed (Wnd, m/s), the standard deviation of the lateral wind (Std_Uy, m/s), virtual temperature (Tv, ℃), H2O mass density (H2O, g/m3), CO2 mass density (CO2, mg/m3), friction velocity (ustar, m/s), stability (z/L), sensible heat flux (Hs, W/m2), latent heat flux (LE, W/m2), carbon dioxide flux (Fc, mg/ (m2s)), quality assessment of the sensible heat flux (QA_Hs), quality assessment of the latent heat flux (QA_LE), and quality assessment of the carbon flux (QA_Fc). The quality marks of sensible heat flux, latent heat flux and carbon flux are divided into three levels (quality marks 0 have good data quality, 1 have good data quality and 2 have poor data quality). In this dataset, the time of 0:30 corresponds to the average data for the period between 0:00 and 0:30; the data were stored in *.xls format.

    Daily soil temperature and moisture dataset in a small catchment of Qinghai Lake Basin (2019-2021)

    This dataset provide the daily observations of soil water contents and soil temperature in the Qihuli catchment in the upper reach of Qihai Lake basin. Daily soil water content and soil temperature were measured in the shady slope, sunny slope and the outfall of this catchment in the period of 2019-2021. The Qihuli catchment is located at 37°25′N and 100°15′E, with the elevation ranging from 3565-3716. The soil water content and soil temperature were continuously monitored using the ECH2O and 5TE sensors at both shady and sunny slopes. The monitoring depths are 10 cm, 30 cm, 50 cm, 80 cm, 110 cm, and 10 cm, 30 cm, 60 cm, 90 cm, and 120 cm at shady and sunny slope sites, respectively. The soil water content and soil temperature were monitored continuously using the Trime and PICO32 sensors, which were installed at ten soil depths, including 5 cm, 10 cm, 20 cm, 40 cm, 80 cm, 100 cm, 120 cm, 140 cm, 160 cm and 180 cm. This dataset can support the long-term investigation of ecohydrological processes in typical catchment and also support the validation of hydrology models.

  • Snow water equivalent dataset for the High Asia Region (2002-2011)

    Snow water equivalent dataset for the High Asia Region (2002-2011)

    Snow water equivalent (the product of snow depth and density) is an important factor reflecting the change in snow cover on the ground surface, and it is also an important parameter in surface hydrological models and climatic models. As the “Headwaters of Asia”, the Tibetan Plateau is the source of several major rivers, which are fed with glacier and snow meltwater. Based on the sensitivity of passive microwave radiation to snow, these monitoring data enable long-term inversion of snow water equivalents in the High Asia region. The data set includes daily snow water equivalent, monthly snow water equivalent and five-day snow water equivalent, and these data can be applied in analyses of local hydrology, animal husbandry production and other fields.

  • Coupling model of grass and livestock in Qilian Mountains and its optimal allocation results

    Coupling model of grass and livestock in Qilian Mountains and its optimal allocation results

    In this data set, the effects of different proportions of oat grass and natural grass on digestion and metabolism of grazing Tibetan sheep in summer were studied with four proportions of oat grass and natural grass in Qilian alpine meadow. It includes dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), crude protein (CP), crude fat (EE), neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber (ADF) intake and digestibility of grazing Tibetan sheep. Through the analysis of data, the natural forage in summer can meet the growth and metabolism of Tibetan sheep, and it is not suitable to feed oat grass.

    Landsat-based continuous monthly 30m NDVI Dataset in Qilian mountain area in 2021 (V1.0)

    Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is the sum of the reflectance values of the NIR band and the red band by the Difference ratio of the reflectance values of the NIR band and the red band. Vegetation index synthesis refers to the selection of the best representative of vegetation index within the appropriate synthesis cycle, and the synthesis of a vegetation index grid image with minimal influence on spatial resolution, atmospheric conditions, cloud conditions, observation geometry, and geometric accuracy and so on. This data set includes the monthly synthesis of 30m*30m surface vegetation index products in Qilian mountain area in 2021. Max value composition (MVC) method was used to synthesize monthly NDVI products on the surface using the reflectivity data of Landsat 8 and sentinel 2 channels from Red and NIR channels.

    Landsat-based continuous monthly 30m NPP Dataset in Qilian mountain area in 2021 (V1.0)

    Net Primary Productivity (NPP) refers to the total amount of organic matter produced by photosynthesis in green plants per unit time and area. As the basis of water cycle, nutrient cycle and biodiversity change in terrestrial ecosystems, NPP is an important ecological indicator for estimating earth support capacity and evaluating sustainable development of terrestrial ecosystems. This data set includes the monthly synthesis of 30m*30m surface LAI products in Qilian mountain area in 2021. Max value composition (MVC) method was used to synthesize monthly NPP products on the surface using the reflectivity data of Landsat 8 and sentinel 2 channels from Red and NIR channels.
