Dataset of climate background and changes in China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor from 1981 to 2019 (Version 1.0)

The China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor is confronted with security problems related with global warming, mostly including the increasingly serious of degradation of permafrost and land desertification. On one hand, frozen soil degradation has caused frequent disasters such as debris flow, flood, ice and snow damage along the China-Mongolia-Russia transportation and pipeline, which will cause water and soil erosion followed by exposed pipes in frozen soil, in particular in summer. On the other hand, desertification will drive the ecological environment more vulnerable with the compound hazards of soil erosion and sandstorms occurring frequently. Therefore, this dataset will hopefully provide basic climate data for the research on the climate change and its impacts on permafrost and desertification for the China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor. The original data is extracted from ERA5- Land surface climate reanalysis data (ERA5 – Land) (source: We adopted the inverse distance weight (IDW) method to interpolate the original data with the spatial resolution of 10 km. Based on this dataset, the spatial and temporal distribution pattern of climatic factors are outlined over the past 40 years for the corridor.
