This dataset takes China as the study area, and the dataset includes "Decimal_ time", "lat", "lon", "time", "time_bounds", "TWSA_ REC" and "uncertainty". The "Decimal_time" corresponds to decimal time, which is 191 months from April 2002 to December 2019; "lat" corresponds to the latitude range of data; "lon" corresponds to the longitude range of data; "time" corresponds to the accumulated days since January 1, 2002; " time_bounds" refers to the start accumulated days and end accumulated days of each month. "TWSA_REC" is the monthly anomalies of China's terrestrial water storage from April 2002 to December 2019; "uncertainty" is the uncertainty between the data and CSR RL06 mascon products. The developers use GRACE data from CSR GRACE/GRACE-FO RL06 mascon solutions (version 02), precipitation from China Gauge-Based Daily Precipitation Analysis (CGDPA), and temperature data from CN05.1, and the precipitation reconstruction model was established, and the seasonal and trend terms of CSR RL06 mascon products were considered to obtain this dataset. The data has good quality as a whole, and the RMSE in most regions of China is within 5cm. This dataset bridges the one-year data gap between GRACE/GRACE-FO satellites, and provides a complete time series for long-term terrestrial water storage analysis in China.
Precipitation estimates with ﬁne quality and spatio-temporal resolutions play signiﬁcant roles in understanding the global and regional cycles of water, carbon, and energy. Satellite-based precipitation products are capable of detecting spatial patterns and temporal variations of precipitation at ﬁne resolutions, which is particularly useful over poorly gauged regions. However, satellite-based precipitation products are the indirect estimates of precipitation, inherently containing regional and seasonal systematic biases and random errors. Focusing on the potential drawbacks in generating Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for Global Precipitation Measurement (IMERG) and its recently updated retrospective IMERG in the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) era (ﬁnished in July 2019), which were only calibrated at a monthly scale using ground observations, Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC, 1.0◦/monthly), we aim to propose a new calibration algorithm for IMERG at a daily scale and to provide a new AIMERG precipitation dataset (0.1◦/half-hourly, 2000–2015, Asia) with better quality, calibrated by Asian Precipitation – Highly Resolved Observational Data Integration Towards Evaluation of Water Resources (APHRODITE, 0.25◦/daily) at the daily scale for the Asian applications. Considering the advantages from both satellite-based precipitation estimates and the ground observations, AIMERG performs better than IMERG at different spatio-temporal scales, in terms of both systematic biases and random errors, over mainland China.

Reservoir refers to the artificial water area formed in valley, river or low-lying area by dam, dike, sluice, weir and other projects. It is the main measure used for runoff regulation to change the distribution process of natural water resources and plays an important role in social and economic development. Many reservoirs have been built in Heihe River Basin, which has an important impact on the utilization of water resources in this area. In order to facilitate the mapping needs of users, we use topographic map and remote sensing image to prepare the reservoir distribution map of the Heihe River Basin. The location and shape of the reservoir are mainly obtained by manual interpretation based on Google map image, which basically shows the current situation of the reservoir distribution in the Heihe River Basin around 2010.

The stable oxygen isotope ratio (δ 18O) in precipitation is a comprehensive tracer of global atmospheric processes. Since the 1990s, efforts have been made to study the isotopic composition of precipitation at more than 20 stations located on the TP of the Tibetan Plateau, which are located at the air mass intersection between westerlies and monsoons. In this paper, we establish a database of monthly precipitation δ 18O over the Tibetan Plateau and use different models to evaluate the climate control of precipitation δ 18O over TP. The spatiotemporal pattern of precipitation δ 18O and its relationship with temperature and precipitation reveal three different domains, which are respectively related to westerly wind (North TP), Indian monsoon (South TP) and their transition.
