Glacier mass storage changes of 71 pieces of glaciers in the east section of Yigongzangbu, Southeast Tibetan Plateau in 2000-2014


The data involved geodetic glacier mass change of 71pieces of glaciers during 2000-2014 in the east of the Yigongzangbu, Southeast Tibetan Plateau. It is stored in the ESRI vector polygon format.Glacier-averaged mass balance (m w.e.a-1) was calculated by the surface elevation difference between 2000-2014 ( Dh2000-2014)、glacier coveraged vector data (CGI2/TPG1976/RGI6.0) and ice density of 850 ± 60 kg m−3. Dh2000-2014 is obtained from surface elevation change by D-InSAR technique from a pair of TSX / TDx SAR images on February 7, 2014 and SRTM DEM. CGI2/TPG1976/RGI6.0 were used to extract glacier boundary and GLIMS-ID. SRTM DEM is the reference DEM and datum DEM with spatial resolution 30m. The attribute data includes GLIMS-ID, Area,EC_m_a-1,,MB_m w.e.a-1, MC_m3 w.e.a-1, MC_Gt.a-1, Uncerty_EC, Uncerty_MB, UT_MCm3w.e. a-1. Respectively, EC_m_a-1,,is the glacier-averaged annual elevation change during 2000-2014(m a-1),MB_m w.e.a-1, is glacier-averaged annual mass balance during 2000-2014(m w.e.a-1), MC_m3 w.e.a-1, is glacier-averaged annual mass change during 2000-2014 (m3 w.e.a-1), MC_Gt.a-1,is glacier-averaged annual mass change during 2000-2014 (Gt.a-1)Uncerty_EC is the uncertainty of glacier surface elevation change(±m a-1)、Uncerty_MB ,is the uncertainty of glacier mass balance(±m w.e. a-1),UT_MCm3w.e. a-1, is the uncertainty of glacier mass change(±m3w.e. a-1)。The data sets could be used for glacier change, hydrological and climate change studies in the southeast of Tibetan Plateau.
