Scientific Expedition Album of different types and thickness of unconsolidated sediments in the Yarlung Tsangpo River Basin (2020)

Focusing on the objective of estimating the total amount of unconsolidated sediments in the Yarlung Tsangpo River Basin (YTRB), we marked a series of Quaternary sections of unconsolidated sediments in the whole basin to measure their thickness. The dataset presents a collection of field photos of unconsolidated sediments obtained in the scientific expedition in YTRB in 2020. Specifically, this dataset comprises of 16 composite first–class sub basins, from upstream to downstream, including Dangque–Laiwu Tsangpo, Resu–Lierong Tsangpo, Chaiqu–Menqu, Xiongqu–Wengbuqu, Jiada Tsangpo, Pengji Tsangpo–Sakya Chongqu, Duoxiong Tsangpo, Shabu–Danapu, Nianchu River, Xiangqu–Wuyuma, Manqu, Nimuma–Lhasa River, Gonggapu–Luoburongqu, Niyang River, Yigong Tsangpo–Palong Tsangpo, and Xiangjiang River Basin. A total of 584 sites of unconsolidated sediments were marked. The atlas displays different types of unconsolidated sediments, such as alluvium, eluvium, diluvium, colluvium, eolian, lacustrine and moraine deposits, showing their spatial distribution in hillsides, foothills, floodplains, terraces, alluvial–diluvial fans and glacier fronts. With a scale of 1m benchmarking, it shows the significant difference in distribution of thickness. Generally, the thickness of the eluvium on the upper part of the hillside is about 0.3–2.5m, and the thickness of the alluvium is difficult to bottom out. The thickness of diluvium in the gentle area of the piedmont with steep slope is usually between 5 and 10 m, while the thickness of the deposit at the piedmont gully mouth is related to the scale of the pluvial fan, which can reach tens of meters thick and only 3 to 4 meters thin. From the upstream to the downstream, the thickness of alluvium varies greatly. The bedrock in the canyon area is exposed, and the thickness is almost 0. However, the thickness of alluvium in the upstream river valley is large and difficult to see the bottom interface; The maximum thickness of measured moraine deposits can reach more than 20 m. Aeolian deposits are common in the middle and upper reaches, with a wide range of thickness, ranging from a few meters to more than 20 meters. The dataset provides a wide variety of in–suit photos and measurements of unconsolidated sediments covering the whole basin, showing their characteristics of spatial distribution and genetic types, which lays a material foundation and prior knowledge for further detailed characterization and investigation of unconsolidated sediments. This work presents data for estimating the total accumulation of solid debris deposited in the YTRB, and provides a basis for assessing the risk of natural disasters related to unconsolidated sediments and formulating scientific preventive measures.

Dataset of sedimentary characteristics of unconsolidated sediments in the Yarlung Tsangpo River Basin (2022)

This dataset includes the schematic diagrams and lithologic histograms of the measured sections of typical unconsolidated sediments in Shigatse, Yarlung Tsangpo River Basin, as well as the statistical table of measured sections. The source data comes from a two-month field measurement in Shigatse, Tibet. 16 sections of unconsolidated sediments were measured, and 128 samples were collected, including 89 cosmic nuclide samples and 39 optically stimulated luminescence samples. 16 schematic diagrams and 38 lithologic histograms were shown. The dataset primarily shows the genetic types of typical unconsolidated sediments in the Shigatse area, such as alluvium, eluvium, diluvium, colluvium, and moraine deposits. The exposed range of measured sediment thickness is about 1.6–70 m, the average thickness is about 29 m, and the horizontal distribution is 41–9059 m. The dataset demonstrates the discrete, porous, sandy and weakly cemented structural characteristics of the unconsolidated sediments with high gravel content (80%–95%), and the main gravel diameter distribution is 0.05–0.1m; sorting and roundness of alluvium are good, while the colluvial materials are poor. Fining-upward trends are commonly seen in most sections, and parallel and tabular cross-bedding are occasionally developed. Untangling the sedimentary characteristics of unconsolidated sediments in the Yarlung Tsangpo River Basin is vital to reveal the storage of fluvial solid matter across the basin, and provide important instructions for disaster warning and prevention and control of related features caused by sliding, unloading, and collapse of the ground surface. It is also of great scientific value to reveal the source-sink process and evolution of fluvial and alluvial systems in the Tibet Plateau and its surrounding basins.

Dataset of Land cover over Tibetan Plateau From 2001 to 2020

Land cover refers to the mulch formed by the current natural and human influences on the earth's surface. It is the natural state of the earth's surface, such as forests, grasslands, farmland, soil, glaciers, lakes, swamps and wetlands, and roads. The Land Cover (LC) dataset is original from MODIS products and preprocessed by format conversion, projection and resampling. The existing format is TIFF and projection is Krasovsky_1940_Albers. The data set has a spatial resolution of 1000 meters and provides one image per year during the period from 2002 to 2020. Land cover products were classified into 17 categories defined by the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme (IGBP), including 11 categories of natural vegetation, 3 categories of land use and Mosaic, and 3 categories of non-planting land.

The desertification risk map of the Arabian Peninsula in 2020

The gridded desertification risk data of The Arabian Peninsula in 2021 was calculated based on the environmentally sensitive area index (ESAI) methodology. The ESAI approach incorporates soil, vegetation, climate and management quality and is one of the most widely used approaches for monitoring desertification risk. Based on the ESAI framework, fourteen indicators were chosen to consider four quality domains. Each quality index was calculated from several indicator parameters. The value of each parameter was categorized into several classes, the thresholds of which were determined according to previous studies. Then, sensitivity scores between 1 (lowest sensitivity) and 2 (highest sensitivity) were assigned to each class based on the importance of the class’ role in land sensitivity to desertification and the relationships of each class to the onset of the desertification process or irreversible degradation. A more comprehensive description of how the indicators are related to desertification risk and scores is provided in the studies of Kosmas (Kosmas et al., 2013; Kosmas et al., 1999). The main indicator datasets were acquired from the Harmonized World Soil Database of the Food and Agriculture Organization, Climate Change Initiative (CCI) land cover of the European Space Agency and NOAA’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data. The raster datasets of all parameters were resampled to 500m and temporally assembled to the yearly values. Despite the difficulty of validating a composite index, two indirect validations of desertification risk were conducted according to the spatial and temporal comparison of ESAI values, including a quantitative analysis of the relationship between the ESAI and land use change between sparse vegetation and grasslands and a quantitative analysis of the relationship between the ESAI and net primary production (NPP). The verification results indicated that the desertification risk data is reliable in the Arabian Peninsula in 2021.
