DEM of the China–Pakistan Economic Corridor and Tianshan Mountains (30m) (2006-2011)

Topographic data of China Pakistan Economic Corridor and Tianshan Mountains are produced by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The 30m digital elevation model (DEM) (2006-2011) of China Pakistan Economic Corridor and Tianshan Mountains describes the ground elevation information, which is an important raw data for studying and analyzing terrain, watershed and feature recognition. It is widely used in surveying and mapping, hydrology, hydrology, meteorology, geomorphology, geology, soil, engineering construction and other fields of national economy as well as humanities and natural sciences. In terms of flood control and disaster reduction, DEM is the basis for hydrological analysis, such as catchment area analysis, water network analysis, rainfall analysis, flood storage calculation, inundation analysis, etc; At the same time, DEM data can reflect local terrain features with a certain resolution. Through DEM, a large amount of surface morphology information can be extracted, which can be used to draw contour lines, elevation maps, slope maps, water system maps, three-dimensional perspective maps, three-dimensional landscape maps, and used to make orthophotos, three-dimensional terrain models, and map revision. The horizontal resolution of the data is 30m (1 arc second), and the elevation accuracy is 5m. It is one of the most accurate terrain data in the world.

Data set of surface grain size distribution along the Nyangqu River in the Yarlung Zangbo River (2021)

The riverbed surface of the main channel in Nyangqu river is composed of gravel particles with wide grain size distribution. there are abundant gravel particles on the beach and riverbed. In this investigation, the bed surface grain size distribution of the main channel and tributaries of the Nyangqu river was measured. This data set contains the information of the five sampling locations in five main channels and two locations in tributaries of the Nyangqu River Basin (Table 1) and the bed surface grain size distribution (Table 2). The sampling locations were generally selected near the cross-section with obvious riverbed. It was considered that water flow through these sections in the straight channel for a long. At the same time, because it was a dry season, the bed grain size distribution on the river beach could be considered as the movement of gravel bedload carried by the last flood season. Therefore, it was considered that the bed grain size distribution in the sampling area on the river beach in the dry season was the bedload size distribution in the flood season. The grain size distributions were measured by the automatic identification method of full particle size based on image processing (e.g., Baserain software), with high identification accuracy of sediment particles is high. It is of great value to the scientific research on the evolution of source to sink process,bedlaod transport, and flood numerical simualtion, as well as the basic research on the flash flood prevention and control.

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 .

Modeling the influence of climate change on the distribution and activities of the Qinghai toad-headed lizard (1960-2080)

Based on the distribution locations of the Qinghai toad-headed lizard (Phrynocephalus vlangalii) collected by field investigation and literature investigation, combined with five climate factors from WorldClim database, the current (1960-1990) and future (2061-2080) climate data were input into the trained species distribution model to predict the current and future suitable habitats. The prediction results shows that the lizard will lose a lot of original habitats under the climate change, and the protection measures for the lizard species should focus on the eastern margin of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the northern and eastern parts of Qaidam Basin. The model also predicts that after the climate change, new suitable habitats will appear in areas that were not suitable for the Qinghai toad-headed lizard. However, due to the very limited diffusion ability of reptiles (the maximum annual diffusion distance recorded in the literature is less than 500m), the newly emerging suitable habitats may not be used by the Qinghai toad-headed lizard. Meanwhile, based on the physiological, life history, behavior and morphological data of three altitudinal populations of the Qinghai toad-headed lizard collected by field work, and combined with microclimate data, the physiological consequences of climate change on the Qinghai toad-headed lizard in the current suitable distribution area were predicted by using the mechanism niche model. The prediction results of the model show that, whether in the SSP245 or SSP585 climate change scenarios, the activity time of the lizard will increase in most areas (> 93%) of the current suitable distribution area, and the thermal safety threshold will decrease in all places of the current suitable distribution area. The increase of activity time of high-altitude populations is less than that of low-altitude populations, but the decrease of thermal safety threshold is greater than that of low-altitude populations. The results reveal that climate change may have a greater impact on lizard populations in high altitude areas.
