Spatial and temporal distribution data set of glacier light absorbing substances in Central Asia(2016-2017)

Spatial and temporal distribution data set of glacier light absorbing substances in Central Asia(2016-2017)


The data is an excel file, which includes four tables named as follows: Altay Snow DOC Time Series, Altay Snow Pit Data, Altay Snow MAC (absorption section) and Central Asia Mos Island Glacier BC, OC, DUST Data. Altay snow DOC table includes seven columns including sample number, sampling date, sampling time, sampling depth, DOC-PPM, BC-PPb and TN-PPM, and 47 sample data. Altay snow pit table includes 8 columns including snow pit number, sample number, sampling date, sampling time, sampling depth, DOC-PPM, BC-PPb and TN-PPM, and 238 sample data. Altay snow MAC table includes: sampling time, MAC and AAE, a total of three columns, and 46 sample data. The BC, OC and DUST data tables of glaciers in Central Asia's Muse Island include 8 columns: code no (sample number), Latitude (latitude), Longitude (longitude),/m a.s.l (altitude), snow type (snow type), BC, OC and DUST, which are analyzed by sampling time. There are 105 rows of data in total.

Abbreviation explanation:

DOC: Dissolved Organic Carbon

MAC: mass absorption cross section

BC: black carbon

DUST: Dust

OC: Organic carbon

TN: Total Nitrogen

PPM: ug g-1 (microgram per gram)

PPb: ng g-1 (nanogram per gram)
