This dataset includes data recorded by Cold and Arid Research Network of Lanzhou university obtained from an observation system of Meteorological elements gradient of Dayekou Station from January 1 to December 31, 2021. The site (100.286° E, 38.556° N) was located on a glassland in the Dayekou, which is near Zhangye city, Gansu Province. The elevation is 2694 m. The installation heights and orientations of different sensors and measured quantities were as follows: air temperature and humidity profile (8 m), air pressure (2 m), rain gauge (2 m), infrared temperature sensors (2 m, towards south, vertically downward), soil heat flux (below the vegetation, -0.05 m; towards south), soil temperature/moisture/electrical conductivity profile (-0.05m) photosynthetically active radiation (2 m, towards south), four-component radiometer (2 m, towards south), sunshine duration sensor(2 m, towards south). The observations included the following: air temperature and humidity (Ta_1_8_1; RH_1_8_1) (℃ and %, respectively), wind speed (WS_1_8_1) (m/s), wind direction (WD_1_8_1) (°), air pressure (PA_1_1_1) (hpa), precipitation (P_1_4_1) (mm), four-component radiation (SWIN_1_4_1, incoming shortwave radiation; SWOUT_1_4_1, outgoing shortwave radiation; LWIN_1_4_1, incoming longwave radiation; LWOUT_1_4_1, outgoing longwave radiation; Rn, net radiation) (W/m^2), infrared temperature (℃), photosynthetically active radiation (PPFD_1_4_1) (μmol/ (s m^2)), soil heat flux (SHF_1_5_1) (W/m^2), soil temperature (TS_1_20_1)(℃), soil moisture (SWC_1_20_1)(%, volumetric water content), soil water potential (SWP_1_20_1)(kpa), soil conductivity (EC_1_20_1)(μs/cm). The data processing and quality control steps were as follows: (1) The AWS data were averaged over intervals of 10 min for a total of 144 records per day. Missing or abnormal data is replaced by – 6999. (2) Data in duplicate records were rejected. (3) Unphysical data were rejected. (4) The data marked in red are problematic data. (5) The format of the date and time was unified, and the date and time were collected in the same column, for example, date and time: 2021-6-10 10:30.
This data includes FAPAR and LAI data of ground sample points collected in 2012.The acquisition equipment were SunScane and lai-2000.Among them, the spread value was obtained by FAPAR measurement for 4 times.The sampling sites were located around zhangye on July 15, 2012 at solstice on July 4, 2012, including arol, linze, jiulongjiang forest farm, danoguchi and wuxing village.A total of 637 sets of data were measured.
