Flood simulation data of historical barrier lake breaking in Qinghai Tibet scientific research area

Flood simulation data of historical barrier lake breaking in Qinghai Tibet scientific research area

The data includes three typical cases: Flood Simulation of Yigong Landslide in 2000, Baige landslide in the upper reaches of Jinsha River in 2018, and scenario simulation of wokaqu River Basin crossed by Sichuan Tibet railway. The data is the water level and elevation data flowing along the downstream after the barrier lake burst. The TIF format with spatial projection coordinate information is horizontal Mercator projection. For a typical case, the dynamic adaptive grid two-dimensional flood process model newflood is used for simulation analysis. The input data of the model are terrain data, driving data, etc. SRTM 30 meter resolution DEM data is used for topographic data. Because of the large gradient of wokaqu, the water area of barrier lake is relatively small, so DEM is resampled before simulation. The simulation results can provide a reference for the analysis of flood dynamic process in the corresponding basin.

File naming and required software

The name of the corresponding file is indicated by the initial letter of Pinyin and the water level elevation H. Yigong dammed lake burst flood (ygyshhs_ h) And (bgyshhs_ h) Flood simulation of typical scenarios in Wokaqu (wkqhs)_ h).
The data is in TIFF format and can be opened by ArcGIS and other software.
