Global near-surface soil freeze/thaw state (2002-2019)

The freezing / thawing state of near surface soil represents the dormancy and activity of land surface processes. This alternation of freezing and thawing phases can cause a series of complex surface process trajectory mode mutations, and affect the water cycle processes such as soil hydrothermal characteristics, surface runoff and groundwater recharge, and also affect climate change through water and energy cycle mechanism. This data set is based on AMSR-E and amsr2 passive microwave data, using discriminant algorithm to prepare global near earth surface freeze-thaw state (spatial resolution: 0.25 °; time span: 2002-2019), data storage type: 8-bit unsigned integer (file type:. HDF5) 5) Among them: 0: water body and missing data; 1: frozen soil; 2: thawed soil; 3: precipitation; 15: perennial snow and ice sheet. It can be used to analyze the spatial distribution and trend of the global freeze-thaw cycle, such as the start / end date, freezing / thawing duration, freezing range and other indicators. It can provide data support for understanding the interaction mechanism between land surface freeze-thaw cycle and water and energy exchange process under the background of global change. For detailed naming and missing of data, please refer to the data description.

Dataset of microwave brightness temperature and the freeze-thaw process for medium-to-large lakes in the High Asia Region (2002-2016)

The High Asia region is an area sensitive to global changes in mid-latitude regions and is a hotspot for research. The lakes in the territory are scattered, and the lake freeze-thaw process is one of the key factors sensitive to global change. Due to the large difference in the dielectric constant between ice and water, satellite-borne passive microwave remote sensing is weather insensitive and has a high revisiting rate; thus, it can achieve rapid monitoring of the freeze-thaw state of lakes. According to the area ratio of the lake and the land surface in the sub-pixels of passive microwave radiometer data, this data set represents the lake brightness temperature information of the pixel (sub-pixel level) by applying the hybrid pixel decomposition method in order to monitor the lake freeze-thaw process in the High Asia region. Thus, by adopting a variety of passive microwave data, time series of lake brightness temperature and freeze-thaw status were obtained for a total of 51 medium to large lakes from 2002 to 2016 in the High Asia region. Using cloudless MODIS optical products as validation data, three lakes of different sizes in different regions of High Asia, i.e., Hoh Xil Lake, Dagze Co Lake, and Kusai Lake, were selected for freeze-thaw detection validation. The results indicated that the lake freeze-thaw parameters obtained by microwave and optical remote sensing were highly consistent, and the correlation coefficients reached 0.968 and 0.987. This data set contained the time series brightness temperature of lakes and the freeze-thaw parameters of lake ice, which could be used to further invert the characteristic parameters of lakes and enhance the understanding of lake ice freezing and thawing in the High Asia region. This database will be useful in the assessment of climatic and environmental changes in the High Asia region and in global climatic change response models. The data set consists of two parts: the passive microwave remote sensing brightness temperature data set of 51 lakes in the High Asia region from 2002 to 2016, with an observation interval of 1 to 2 days, and the lake ice freeze-thaw data set obtained by estimation of the lake brightness temperature. The files are the lake brightness temperature data via the nearest neighbour method and pixel decomposition in the form of a .zip file (12 MB) and the lake freeze-thaw data set for 51 lakes in the High Asia region from 2002 to 2016 in the form of an .xls file (0.1 MB).
