Dataset of ice core-snow black carbon content on the Tibetan Plateau (1950-2006)


The data set of ice core-snow black carbon content on the Tibetan plateau (1950-2006) contains five (5) tables: 1 Xu et al. 2006 AG, 2 Xu et al. 2009 PNAS_Conc., 3 Xu et al. 2009 PNAS_flux, 4 Xu et al. 2012 ERL, 5 Wang et al. 2015 ACP.

The data collection sites include the Meikuang glacier, Dongkemadi, Qiangyong, Kangwure, Naimona’nyi, Muztagata, Rongbuk, Tanggula Mountain, Ningjin Gangsang, Zuoqipu, and Glacier No. 1 at the headwaters of the Ürüqi River. The latitudes and longitudes of the collection locations, elevations and other information are marked in the data.

The main indicators of the data are location, time, organic carbon (OC), elemental carbon (EC), black carbon (BC) content and flux.

Location: latitude and longitude

Time: year or date

OC: organic carbon

EC: elemental carbon

BC: Black carbon

Conc.: content, unit: ng g-1

Flux: flux, unit: mg m-2a-1

The data come from the following subjects.
