Land surface temperature (LST) is a key variable for high temperature and drought monitoring and climate and ecological environment research. Due to the sparse distribution of ground observation stations, thermal infrared remote sensing technology has become an important means of quickly obtaining ground temperature over large areas. However, there are many missing and low-quality values in satellite-based LST data because clouds cover more than 60% of the global surface every day. This article presents a unique LST dataset with a monthly temporal resolution for China from 2003 to 2017 that makes full use of the advantages of MODIS data and meteorological station data to overcome the defects of cloud influence via a reconstruction model. We specifically describe the reconstruction model, which uses a combination of MODIS daily data, monthly data and meteorological station data to reconstruct the LST in areas with cloud coverage and for grid cells with elevated LST error, and the data performance is then further improved by establishing a regression analysis model. The validation indicates that the new LST dataset is highly consistent with in situ observations. For the six natural subregions with different climatic conditions in China, verification using ground observation data shows that the root mean square error (RMSE) ranges from 1.24 to 1.58 K, the mean absolute error (MAE) varies from 1.23 to 1.37 K and the Pearson coefficient (R2) ranges from 0.93 to 0.99. The new dataset adequately captures the spatiotemporal variations in LST at annual, seasonal and monthly scales. From 2003 to 2017, the overall annual mean LST in China showed a weak increase. Moreover, the positive trend was remarkably unevenly distributed across China. The most significant warming occurred in the central and western areas of the Inner Mongolia Plateau in the Northwest Region, and the average annual temperature change is greater than 0.1K (R>0:71, P<0:05), and a strong negative trend was observed in some parts of the Northeast Region and South China Region. Seasonally, there was significant warming in western China in winter, which was most pronounced in December. The reconstructed dataset exhibits significant improvements and can be used for the spatiotemporal evaluation of LST in high-temperature and drought-monitoring studies.

The Land Surface Temperature in China dataset contains land surface temperature data for China (about 9.6 million square kilometers of land) during the period of 2003-2017, in Celsius, in monthly temporal and 5600 m spatial resolution. It is produced by combing MODIS daily data(MOD11C1 and MYD11C1), monthly data(MOD11C3 and MYD11C3) and meteorological station data to reconstruct real LST under cloud coverage in monthly LST images, and then a regression analysis model is constructed to further improve accuracy in six natural subregions with different climatic conditions.
The pan third pole historical extreme precipitation data set includes 2000-2018 extreme precipitation identification data. One belt, one road, was used to assess the rainfall in the important area along the GPM IMERG Final Run (GPM) daily rainfall. The extreme precipitation threshold of 34 important nodes was evaluated by percentile method. The daily precipitation period was identified by the calculated threshold, and the surface inundation area was produced on the basis of extreme precipitation. The data range mainly includes 34 key nodes of Pan third pole (Vientiane, Alexandria, Yangon, Calcutta, Warsaw, Karachi, yekajerinburg, Chittagong, Djibouti, etc.) The data set can provide the basis for local government decision-making, so as to correctly identify extreme precipitation and reduce the loss of life and property caused by extreme precipitation.
Data set of surface inundation caused by historical extreme precipitation evaluated the surface inundation range of One Belt And One Road key areas under extreme precipitation, providing a basis and reference for the decision-making of local government departments, so as to give early warning before the occurrence of extreme precipitation and reduce the loss of life and property caused by extreme precipitation.This data set to the extreme precipitation threshold set "and" the extreme precipitation recognition "as the foundation, to confirm the extreme precipitation time node and the area, and then to NASA's web site to download the submerged range products corresponding to the time and region, combining ArcGIS spatial analysis was used to connect the above data, build the data sets of historical extreme precipitation caused surface submerged range for 34 key nodes. The data mainly includes 34 key nodes (Vientiane, China-Myanmar oil and gas pipeline, China-Laos Thai-Cambodia railway, Alexandria, Yangon, Kwantan, Kolkata, Warsaw, Karachi, Yekaterinburg, Yekaterinburg and other regions).
Apparent temperature refers to the degree of heat and cold that the human body feels, which is affected by temperature, wind speed and humidity. The spatial scope of the data covers 34 key nodes in the pan-third pole region (Vientiane, Yangon, Kolkata, Warsaw, Karachi, Yekaterinburg, Chittagong, Tashkent, etc.). The spatial resolution is 100m, and the temporal resolution is year. Processing process: Based on the monitoring data of the meteorological station, calculate the apperant temperature based on the Humidex index, and then use the temperature correction method based on elevation correction to obtain 1km gridded data of the entire area, and downscale it to 100m. The heat wave risk dataset mainly uses intensity as the evaluation index. The spatial range and spatial resolution are consistent with the somatosensory temperature data set, and the temporal resolution is years. The criterion for judging the heat wave is: the weather process in which the somatosensory temperature exceeds 29℃ for three consecutive days is judged to be a high-temperature heat wave.

The data set analyzes the spatial and temporal distribution, impact and loss of typical global flood disasters from 2018 to 2019. In 2018, there were 109 flood disasters in the world, with a death toll of 1995. The total number of people affected was 12.62 million. The direct economic loss was about 4.5 billion US dollars, which was at a low level in the past 30 years. The number of global flood incidents in 2018 was higher in the first half of the year than in the second half of the year, and the frequency of occurrence was higher from May to July. Therefore, based on three typical disaster events such as the hurricane flood in Florence in the United States in 2018, the flooding of the Niger River in Nigeria in 2018, and the Shouguang flood in Shandong Province in 2018, the disaster background, hazard factors, and disaster situation were analyzed. .
