  • MODIS 250-meter vegetation index (2000-2016)

    MODIS 250-meter vegetation index (2000-2016)

    Vegetation index is a key parameter reflecting changes in vegetation phenology. Vegetation index data with high temporal and spatial resolution can provide reliable data support for global change research.Currently, MODIS satellite data products are an important source of data for obtaining vegetation indices. MOD13Q1 provides Vegetation Index (VI) values on a per-pixel basis. There are 2 main vegetation layers.The first is the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and the second is the Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI).Taking 17 key nodes as research areas, based on the MOD13Q1 data from 2000 to 2016, the NDVI and EVI data of vegetation in different regions were cut and estimated, and finally the key node area 2000-2016 16-day 100-meter vegetation was obtained.

  • Dataset of  major domestic animals in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and surrounding regions

    Dataset of major domestic animals in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and surrounding regions

    To analyzing the distribution pattern and genetic background of domain domestic animals in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and surrounding regions and building a genetic resources bank of animals and plants in Pan-Third Pole, we collected 343 domain domestic animal samples in 2018, including Tibet pigs, Tibet dogs, Tibet sheep and Tibet chickens in Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet Province. By applying mitochondrial DNA sequencing on 159 chickens from northwest Yunnan and southeast Tibet, genome resequencing on 11 wild and domestic pigs and GBS sequencing on 193 domestic cattle, a batch of genetic and genome data were generated. It provides basic genetic data to analysis on domestication, immigration and expansion of domestic animals in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Meanwhile it helps better understand the adaption of domestic animals to Qinghai-Tibet Plateau environment.

  • Investigation report on soil salinization around Aral Sea

    Investigation report on soil salinization around Aral Sea

    According to the schedule of the project implementation plan and commissioned by the project team management committee, the Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography of the Chinese Academy of Sciences organized a team of 6 people to carry out a field investigation in the Aral Sea from November 15 to November 26 in view of the desertification, salinization and vegetation construction of the surrounding land. The history, current situation, harnessing work, achievements and pressing problems of soil desertification and salinization around the Aral Sea were preliminarily understood. Sampling of vegetation and soil was carried out, and the technical idea to solve the problem was put forward, that is, planting Halophytes in brackish and saline groundwater to realize rapid vegetation construction in saline-alkali land. Through on-the-spot investigation, the investigation group believed that the implementation of vegetation construction in saline-alkali land should mainly focus on halophytes and local tree species. According to the distribution law of local halophytes and the characteristics of main constructive species in saline-alkali land, combined with the climatic conditions of the implementation site, seven halophytes, such as Salt-eared Tree, should be selected for planting demonstration. After the investigation, the investigation group put forward three specific suggestions on vegetation construction in saline-alkali land.

  • 100-meter land surface temperature dataset of Dhaka typical key node area (2000-2016)

    100-meter land surface temperature dataset of Dhaka typical key node area (2000-2016)

    Land Surface Temporature (LST) is a key parameter in global change research, and it has important for ecosystems and biogeochemistry. At present, Landsat thermal infrared series satellite data (including Landsat TM, ETM+ and OLI thermal infrared bands) is an important data source for land surface temperature estimation. Taking the key nodes of Dhaka as the research area, using the data of Landsat TM/ETM+/TIRS series with good quality (less than 20% cloud) from 2000 to 2016 as inputs, the single channel algorithm (SC) was used to predict the land surface temperature. At the same time, reflectance correction based on NDVI sources was considered to allow for more accurate LST estimation of different regions and conditions. Finally, the annual quarterly (approximate) land surface temperature data of Dhaka key node area during 2000 and 2016 was obtained. Note: Because the data in this area was seriously interfered by the cloud cover, the LST data was cloud masked.

  • Spatial Gini coefficient of countries along the Belt and the Road based on night light data (2017 national scale)

    Spatial Gini coefficient of countries along the Belt and the Road based on night light data (2017 national scale)

    Based on the night light data from remote sensing, the research group used the method of Elvidge in 2009 and 2012 to reverse the incidence of poverty in the countries along the belt and the road. This data is comparable with Gini coefficient published by the World Bank and has the following four prominent advantages: (1) Computing units can be adjusted according to administrative boundaries, reflecting poverty disparities on the sub-regional scale of large countries that are difficult to achieve using statistic data; (2) The spatial Gini coefficient estimated based on night light data is less affected by subjective factors such as survey process, and is comparatively small. Objectively, and the comparability between countries is strong, which overcomes the difficult problem of unification between statistical calibers; (3) The survey and summary cycle limits the update speed at national and large sub-regional scales, while the method based on night light data estimation is convenient to update. (4) Night light data have many years of continuous interannual data from 1992 to 2017, which overcomes the difficulty of obtaining long time series indicators of poverty, such as the gap between the rich and the poor. In view of the above four outstanding advantages, the set of data can better support the research work and provide scientific data for finding out the basic situation of poverty along the "The Belt and the Road".

  • Framework data of species distribution model construction

    Framework data of species distribution model construction

    This framework aims to improve the predicting power of species distribution models through testing models using demographic history since Last Glacial Maximum. By building species distribution models based on different combinations of environmental variables, and then comparing with current distributions, different scenarios of demographic histories can be generated. These scenarios will be compared with demographic history which reconstructed using genetic data. In this way, the best environmental variables combination can be determined. Then, building species distribution model using the chosen environmental variables combination will have more predicting power in predicting distribution changes in the future.

  • Species list and distribution of gammarids in Tibet

    Species list and distribution of gammarids in Tibet

    Based on fieldworks of the Tibetan Plateau and the Pan-Third Pole from 2000 to 2018, the species diversity and distribution database of gammarids (Crustacea, Amphipoda) was built. Gammarids are pilot species in alpine lakes and suitable to serve as indicators for climate change. In order to understand how climate change and geological events influence the diversification of specie and how, in turn, animals adapt to ecological changes, the richness of species and related ecological and distributional data were collected. The species were identified according to the book of Fauna Sinica Crustacea Amphipoda Gammaridea III. The species diversity and distribution patterns were analyzed based on this dataset. This dataset can be used to evaluate the species diversity and to give a background for biodiversity conservation.

  • Black carbon dataset of ice cores over the Tibetan Plateau (1950-2006)

    Black carbon dataset of ice cores over the Tibetan Plateau (1950-2006)

    As the “water tower of Asia”, Tibetan Plateau (TP) are the resource of major rivers in Asia. Black carbon (BC) aerosol emitted from surrounding regions can be transported to the inner TP by atmospheric circulation and consequently deposited in snow, which can significantly influence precipitation and mass balance of glaciers. By drilling and sampling ice cores and snow samples and measuring BC concentration, historical record and spatial distribution can be abtained. It can provide basic dataset to study the effects of BC to the environment and climate over the Tibetan Plateau, as well as the pollutants transport.
