  • Dataset of soil water erosion modulus with 5 m resolution in 11 watersheds of Tibet (2018)

    Dataset of soil water erosion modulus with 5 m resolution in 11 watersheds of Tibet (2018)

    1) The data includes the soil erosion modulus of 11 watersheds with a resolution of 5 m in the year of 2017 in Tibet. 2)Based on the surface layer of rainfall erosivity R, soil erodibility K, slope length factor LS, vegetation coverage FVC, and rotation sampling survey unit, the Chinese soil erosion model (CSLE) was used to calculate soil erosin modulus in 11 watersheds respectively. Through spatial data processing (including chart linking and transformation, vector-grid conversion, and resampling), R, K, LS factors were calculated from the regional thematic map of rainfall erosivity, soil erodibility, and DEM. By half-month FVC, NPV, half-month rainfall erosivity data, we calculated the value of B factors in each sampling watershed. The value of E factor was calculated based on the remote sensing interpretation results and engineering measure factor table. The value of tillage factor T was obtained from tillage zoning map and tillage measure table. And then the soil erosion modulus in each sampling watershed was calculated by the equation: A=R•K•LS•B•E•T. The selection of 11 watersheds was based on the layout of sampling survey in pan-third polar region. 3) Compared with the data of soil erosion intensity in the same region in the same year, there is no significant difference and the data quality is good.4) the data of soil erosion modulus is of great significance for studying the present situation of soil erosion in Pan third polar region, and it is also crucial for the implementation of the development policy of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road.

  • Spatial distribution map of ecological carrying capacity in One Belt And One Road area in 2015

    Spatial distribution map of ecological carrying capacity in One Belt And One Road area in 2015

    Ecological carrying capacity refers to the maximum population scale with a certain level of social and economic development that can be sustainably carried by the ecosystem without damaging the production capacity and functional integrity of the ecosystem, per person/square kilometer. Spatial distribution data of ecological carrying capacity were calculated based on NPP data simulated by VPM model and FAO production and trade data of agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry. Based on NPP data and combined with the land use data of cci-ci and biomass ratio parameters of various ecosystems, ANPP data was obtained to serve as ecological supply quantity. Based on agricultural, forestry and animal husbandry production and trade data and combined with population data, per capita ecological consumption standards of countries along the One Belt And One Road line were obtained, and then national scale data space was rasterized. The spatial rasterized ecological bearing data are obtained by dividing the ecological supply data with the per capita ecological consumption standard.

  • Plant functional types map in China (1 km)

    Plant functional types map in China (1 km)

    Vegetation functional type (PFT) is a combination of large plant species according to the ecosystem function and resource utilization mode of plant species. Each planting functional type shares similar plant attributes, which simplifies the diversity of plant species into the diversity of plant function and structure.The concept of vegetation-functional has been advocated by ecologists especially ecosystem modelers.The basic assumption is that globally important ecosystem dynamics can be expressed and simulated through limited vegetative functional types.At present, vegetation-functional model has been widely used in biogeographic model, biogeochemical model, land surface process model and global dynamic vegetation model. For example, the land surface process model of the national center for atmospheric research (NCAR) in the United States has changed the original land cover information into the applied vegetation-functional map (Bonan et al., 2002).Functional vegetation has been used in the dynamic global vegetation model (DGVM) to predict the changes of ecosystem structure and function under the global change scenario. 1. Functional classification system of vegetation 1 Needleleaf evergreen tree, temperate 2 Needleleaf evergreen tree, boreal 3 Needleleaf deciduous tree 4 Broadleaf evergreen tree, tropical 5 Broadleaf evergreen tree, temperate 6 Broadleaf deciduous tree, tropical 7 Broadleaf deciduous tree, temperate 8 Broadleaf deciduous tree, boreal 9 Broadleaf evergreen shrub, temperate 10 Broadleaf deciduous shrub, temperate 11 Broadleaf deciduous shrub, boreal 12 C3 grass, arctic 13 C3 grass 14 C4 grass 15 Crop 16 Permanent wetlands 17 Urban and built-up lands 18 Snow and ice 19 Barren or sparsely vegetated lands 20 Bodies of water 2. Drawing method China's 1km vegetation function map is based on the climate rules of land cover and vegetation function conversion proposed by Bonan et al. (Bonan et al., 2002).Ran et al., 2012).MICLCover land cover map is a blend of 1:100000 data of land use in China in 2000, the Chinese atlas (1:10 00000) the type of vegetation, China 1:100000 glacier map, China 1:10 00000 marshes and MODIS land cover 2001 products (MOD12Q1) released the latest land cover data, using IGBP land cover classification system.The evaluation shows that it may be the most accurate land cover map on the scale of 1km in China.Climate data is China's atmospheric driven data with spatial resolution of 0.1 and temporal resolution of 3 hours from 1981 to 2008 developed by he jie et al. (2010).The data incorporates Princeton land-surface model driven data (Sheffield et al., 2006), gewex-srb radiation data (Pinker et al., 2003), TRMM 3B42 and APHRODITE precipitation data, and observations from 740 meteorological stations and stations under the China meteorological administration.According to the evaluation results of RanYouhua et al. (2010), GLC2000 has a relatively high accuracy in the current global land cover data set, and there is no mixed forest in its classification system. Therefore, the mixed forest in the MICLCover land cover diagram USES GLC2000 (Bartholome and Belward, 2005).The information in xu wenting et al., 2005) was replaced.The data can be used in land surface process model and other related researches.

  • Population, urbanization, GDP and industrial structure forecast scenario data of the Heihe River Basin (Version 1.0) (2010-2050)

    Population, urbanization, GDP and industrial structure forecast scenario data of the Heihe River Basin (Version 1.0) (2010-2050)

    Taking 2000 as the base year, the future population scenario prediction adopted the Logistic model of population, and it not only can better describe the change pattern of population and biomass but also is widely applied in the economic field. The urbanization rate was predicted using the urbanization Logistic model. Based on the existing urbanization horizontal sequence value, the prediction model was established by acquiring the parameters in the parametric equation applying nonlinear regression. The urban population was calculated by multiplying the predicted population by the urbanization rate. The Logistic model was used to predict the future gross national product of each county (or city), and then, according to the economic development level of each county (or city) in each period (in terms of real GDP per capita), the corresponding industrial structure scenarios in each period were set, and the output value of each industry was predicted. The trend of industrial structure changing in China and the research area lagged behind the growth of GDP, so it was adjusted according to the need of the future industrial structure scenarios of the research area.

  • Spatial distribution maps of lakes over the Tibetan Plateau (1995-2015)

    Spatial distribution maps of lakes over the Tibetan Plateau (1995-2015)

    This data set contains 5 data entities. The spatial distribution data of the lakes on the Tibetan Plateau extracted from Landsat images are used, and the time range is from September to November in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015. The data are made jointly by the Third Pole Environment Database and the Geospatial Data Cloud. The object-oriented method is used for lake extraction. (1) Data preprocessing occurs first. Because this paper only uses the first 7 wave bands of Landsat 8 data, band synthesis is carried out for 1-7 wave bands, and the influence of cloud cover on lake extraction is examined. The data are replaced if the influence is too great. (2) Multiscale segmentation of images is performed in eCognition. Because the spectral characteristics of the lake are uniform, spectral segmentation is used again on this basis. (3) The average characteristics of the 5, 6, and 7 bands (Brigh-567) are used for preliminary water extraction, and for some unextracted lakes, NDWI is used for supplementary extraction. (4) At this time, some shadows remain mistakenly extracted, and most of them can be excluded using NDWI<0.05. At the same time, based on the actual situation, the shadows can be eliminated using the value of the first band. (5) To ensure the accuracy, manually check the unextracted independent lake and the mistakenly extracted object and manually modify it. (6) On this basis, use NDWI>0 for the second extraction around the extracted water body and define the edge of the lake. (7) Check again, then merge the objects and export the results. The data effectively remove the influence of mountain shadows, clouds and cloud shadows, snow cover, glaciers and other non-water objects. The lake boundary is accurate and clear, and the error is controlled within a pixel. The accuracy requirement is 30 meters, which is a pixel.

  • Qilian Mountains integrated observatory network: Dataset of the Heihe River Basin integrated observatory network (eddy covariance system of Sidaoqiao superstation, 2018)

    Qilian Mountains integrated observatory network: Dataset of the Heihe River Basin integrated observatory network (eddy covariance system of Sidaoqiao superstation, 2018)

    This dataset contains the flux measurements from the Sidaoqiao superstation eddy covariance system (EC) in the downstream reaches of the Heihe integrated observatory network from January 1 to December 31 in 2018. The site (101.1374° E, 42.0012° N) was located in the Ejina Banner in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region . The elevation is 873 m. The EC was installed at a height of 3.2 m, and the sampling rate was 10 Hz. The sonic anemometer faced north, and the separation distance between the sonic anemometer and the CO2/H2O gas analyzer (CSAT3&Li7500A) was 0.15 m. The raw data acquired at 10 Hz were processed using the Eddypro post-processing software, including the spike detection, lag correction of H2O/CO2 relative to the vertical wind component, sonic virtual temperature correction, coordinate rotation (2-D rotation), corrections for density fluctuation (Webb-Pearman-Leuning correction), and frequency response correction. The EC data were subsequently averaged over 30 min periods. The observation data quality was divided into three classes according to the quality assessment method of stationarity (Δst) and the integral turbulent characteristics test (ITC): class 1-3 (high quality), class 4-6 (good), class 7-8 (poor, better than gap filling data), class9 (rejected). In addition to the above processing steps, the half-hourly flux data were screened in a four-step procedure: (1) data from periods of sensor malfunction were rejected; (2) data collected before or after 1 h of precipitation were rejected; (3) incomplete 30 min data were rejected when the missing data constituted more than 10% of the 30 min raw record. There were 48 records per day, and the missing data were replaced with -6999. Suspicious data were marked in red. Latent heat flux during November 9 to 21, 2018 were missing due to the sensor malfunction of CO2/H2O gas analyzer. The released data contained the following variables: data/time, wind direction (Wdir, °), wind speed (Wnd, m/s), the standard deviation of the lateral wind (Std_Uy, m/s), virtual temperature (Tv, ℃), H2O mass density (H2O, g/m3), CO2 mass density (CO2, mg/m3), friction velocity (ustar, m/s), stability (L), sensible heat flux (Hs, W/m2), latent heat flux (LE, W/m2), carbon dioxide flux (Fc, mg/ (m2s)), quality assessment of the sensible heat flux (QA_Hs), quality assessment of the latent heat flux (QA_LE), and quality assessment of the carbon flux (QA_Fc). In this dataset, the time of 0:30 corresponds to the average data for the period between 0:00 and 0:30; the data were stored in *.xls format.

  • 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.
