MODIS daily cloudless snow products in the Tibetan Plateau (2002-2010)

This data is 2002.07.04-2010.12.31 MODIS daily cloudless snow products in the Tibetan Plateau. Due to the snow and cloud reflection characteristics, the use of optical remote sensing to monitor snow is severely disturbed by the weather. This product is based on the most commonly used cloud removal algorithm, using the MODIS daily snow product and passive microwave data AMSR-E snow water equivalent product, and the daily cloudless snow product in the Tibetan Plateau is developed. The accuracy is relatively high. This product has important value for real-time monitoring of snow cover dynamic changes on the Tibetan Plateau.

China permafrost map based Circum-Arctic map of permafrost and ground-Ice conditions, Version 2 (1997)

The distribution map of permafrost and ground-ice around the Arctic is the only data map of permafrost compiled by the international permafrost association in collaboration with permafrost research institutes of several countries in 1997. The map describes the distribution and properties of permafrost and subsurface ice conditions in the northern hemisphere (20°N to 90°N). Permafrost was divided into continuous (90-100%), discontinuous (50-90%), sporadic (10-50%), island (<10%) and non-permafrost by continuous division of permafrost scope. The subsurface ice abundance at the top 20 m is divided by the percentage of ice volume (>20%, 10-20%, <10% and 0%). Published ESRI-shape files are based on 1:10 million paper maps (Brown et al. 1997). The map can be used in related research such as global climate change, polar resource development and environmental protection. The China section is shown in thumbnail. See the reference for more information (Heginbottom et al. 1993). The format of the data is the ESRI shapefile, you can download it on the snow and ice data center (

Concentrations of soil POPs in the Tibetan Plateau

This data set is the spatial distribution of soil POPs in the Tibetan Plateau, including OCPs, PCBs, PBDEs and PAHs. Fourty soil samples were taken from remote sites (i.e., away from towns, roads, or other human activity) in 8 soil zones of the Tibetan Plateau in 2007. The samples were collected using a stainless steel hand-held corer.Five cores (0-5 cm), taken over an area of ~100 m2, were bulked together to form one sample. The samples were wrapped in aluminum foil twice and sealed in two plastic bags to minimize the possibility for contamination. All the samples were analyzed at Key Laboratory of Tibetan Environment Changes and Land Surface Processes, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The samples were Soxhlet-extracted, purified on an aluminium/silica column (i.d. 8 mm), a gel permeation chromatography (GPC) column subsequently, and were detected on a gas chromatograph with an ion-trap mass spectrometer (GC-MS, Finnigan Trace GC/PolarisQ) operating under MS–MS mode. A CP-Sil 8CB capillary column (50 m ×0.25 mm, film thickness 0.25 μm) was used for OCPs, PCBs and PBDEs, and a DB-5MS column (60 m ×0.25mm, film thickness 0.25 μm) was used for PAHs. Procedural blanks were prepared. The recoveries ranged from 53% to 130% for OCPs, and 58% to 92% for PAHs. The reported concentrations were not corrected for recoveries.

Genetic diversity hotspots and suggested conservation areas of amphibian and reptiles on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau

Based on our field works in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) from 2008 to 2018, and combining data from previous studies, we obtained genetic data of all widely distributed amphibian and reptile species in QTP. Meanwhile, our data covered the whole ranges of all the species. To answer the question: ‘How climatic changes influenced animals of QTP?’, we rebuild the demographic history and analyzed how Quaternary climatic changes impacted animals. Then, we identified the locations of refugia. After constructing spatial pattern of genetic diversity, we identified genetic hotspots which needs more conservation effects. These results are important in biodiversity conservation in QTP.
