A dataset of soil carbon stock to 3m depth at Tibetan Plateau (2019)

The dataset based on synthesized data from 1114 sites across the Tibetan permafrost region which report that paleoclimate is more important than modern climate in shaping current permafrost carbon distribution.A new estimate of modern soil carbon stock to 3m depth on Tibetan permafrost region was derived by machine learning algorithm, including factors such as climate (paleoclimate and modern climate), vegetation, soil (soil thickness and soil physical and chemical properties, etc.) and topography. This dataset shows that ecosystem models clearly underestimated the Tibetan soil carbon stock, due to the absence of paleoclimate effects in the model. Future modelling of soil carbon cycling should include paleoclimate .

Data set of soil freezing depth in the future scenario of Qinghai Tibet Plateau Based on Stefan equation (2007-20172046-2065)

Soil freezing depth (SFD) is necessary to evaluate the balance of water resources, surface energy exchange and biogeochemical cycle change in frozen soil area. It is an important indicator of climate change in the cryosphere and is very important to seasonal frozen soil and permafrost. This data is based on Stefan equation, using the daily temperature prediction data and E-factor data of canems2 (rcp45 and rcp85), gfdl-esm2m (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85), hadgem2-es (rcp26, rcp45 and rcp85), ipsl-cm5a-lr (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85), miroc5 (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85) and noresm1-m (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85), The data set of annual average soil freezing depth in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau with a spatial resolution of 0.25 degrees from 2007 to 2065 was obtained.

Basic dataset of soil over the Great Lakes in Central Asia - Soil (2015)

Soil is mineral particles of different sizes formed by weathering of rocks. Soil not only provides nutrients and water for crops, but also has a transforming effect on various nutrients. In addition, the soil also has a self-cleaning function, which can improve organic matter content, soil temperature and humidity, pH value, anion and cation. The soil pollution causes several environmental problems: industrial sewage, acid rain, exhaust emissions, accumulations, agricultural pollution. After the land is polluted, the contaminated tops with high concentration of heavy metals are easily entered under the action of wind and water. Other secondary ecological and environmental problems such as air pollution, surface water pollution, groundwater pollution and ecosystem degradation in the atmosphere and water.he data set comes from the World Soil Database (Harmonized World Soil Database version 1.1) (HWSD) UN Food and Agriculture (FAO) and the Vienna International Institute for Applied Systems Research Institute (IIASA) constructed, which provides data model input parameters for the modeler, At the same time, it provides a basis for research on ecological agriculture, food security and climate change.

The determination of various soil properties refers to the requirements of the "Technical Specifications for Soil Environmental Quality Monitoring" and is obtained through field sampling and indoor testing. Soil bulk density was measured in 5–10 cm and 15–20 cm soil layers, respectively. The mechanical composition is divided into sand (2–0.02 mm), silt (0.02–0.002 mm) and clay (< 0.002 mm) according to the International System of Classification. The soil is removed from impurities such as gravel and roots and crushed. The determination of soil organic matter, total nitrogen, total phosphorus and total potassium is a complete sample. The pH was determined by potentiometric method, and the water-soil ratio was 2.5:1. The collection of soil samples refers to the soil sample collection specifications, and the indoor analysis and testing refers to standard analysis methods. The data quality is controlled by measuring duplicate samples and standard samples. This data can provide data supporting for comprehensive assessment of the environmental effects of typical land use changes.
