The data set includes data on lakes with an altitude over 5,000 meters in Tibet from 1988 to 2016. The data were derived from the Tibet Society and Economics Statistical Yearbook and the Tibet Statistical Yearbook. The accuracy of the data is consistent with that of the statistical yearbook. The table contains 5 fields. Field 1: Year Field 2: Lake Name Field 3: Lake altitude Unit: meter Field 4: Lake area Unit: square kilometers Field 5: Lake Type
The dataset includes vector map of the lakes larger than 1k㎡ on Tibetan Plateau in 1970s, 1990, 2000, 2010. The lake boundry data was extracted from remote sensing image like Landsat MSS, TM, ETM+, by means of visual interpretation. The data type is vector data, and it's attribute class includes Area (km²). The Projected Coordinate System is Albers Conical Equal Area. It is mainly used in the study of changes in lakes, hydrological and meteorological on the Tibetan Plateau.
The data set contains vector data of 32,840 lakes which can be recognized in the remote sensing image on the Tibetan plateau in 2000. The data was obstracted by visual interpretation from GeoCover Landsat Mosaic 2000 image data with a spatial resolution of 14.25 m. The data format is vector data, and the projection coordinate system is Albers Conical Equal Area. The data property fields are as follows: Area: lake Area (km); X: lake center longitude (°); Y: lake center latitude (°); Perimeter: the Perimeter of a lake (km).
Based on the data of Keyhole satellite in 1960s, using object-oriented supervised classification and manual visual interpretation and correction, water data products are produced. The total interpretation area is 645,000 km2, accounting for 96.28% of the study area, of which 18,844 km2 is missing in The Three River Headwater region, 4,220 km2 is missing in the Yukon River basin study area in Alaska, and 1,954 km2 is missing in the Pul River basin in West Siberia. The width of the minimum linear figure is more than 8 meters, the area of the minimum surface figure is more than 100 square meters, the trace accuracy is 2 pixels, and the first-class interpretation accuracy is more than 95%. The obtained high spatial resolution surface water data products provide effective data for the study of water changes in the 1960s and reliable basis for the study of frozen soil changes.
GLObal WAter BOdies database（GLOWABO）were obtained based on the GeoCoverTM Water bodies Extraction Method, Charles verpoorer et al， by Landsat 7 ETM + image in 2000 ± 3 years. The water extraction method combines the principal component analysis, threshold extraction, texture feature extraction and other methods, with a spatial resolution of 15 m and an overall accuracy of 91%. The data also includes water area, perimeter, shape index, elevation and other information. In this data set, The Three River Headwater region, Pul River Basin and Yukon River Basin, are selected to provide data support for polar hydrological research in the northern hemisphere.
The data of this study is mainly based on Google Earth Engine big data cloud processing platform. Sentinel-2 of The Three River Headwater region, Pul and Yukon River Basins in 2017 is selected as the basic data, STRM-DEM and Global Surface Water are used as auxiliary data. AWEIn，AWEIs，WI2015，MNDWI，NDWI and other index threshold extraction are selected to obtain seasonal water body and permanent water body according to annual water frequency(spatial resolution 10m). This water data product provides effective basic data for high spatial-temporal resolution water body change and permafrost hydrological analysis.
This data provides the annual lake area of 582 lakes with an area greater than 1 km2 in the enorheic basin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau from 1986 to 2019. First, based on JRC and SRTM DEM data, 582 lakes are identified in the area that are larger than 1 km2. All Landsat 5/7/8 remote sensing images covering a lake are used to make annual composite images. NDWI index and Ostu algorithm were used to dynamically segment lakes, and the size of each lake from 1986 to 2019 is then calculated. This study is based on the Landsat satellite remote sensing images, and using Google Earth Engine allowed us to process all Landsat images available to create the most complete annual lake area data set of more than 1 km2 in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau area; A set of lake area automatic extraction algorithms were developed to calculate of the area of a lake for many years; This data is of great significance for the analysis of lake area dynamics and water balance in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau region, as well as the study of the climate change of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau lake.
Inland water system and river basin regional dataset are the key hydrological parameters in the study of global change. Waterr distribution is of great significance to the study of the characteristics, morphological characteristics, changes, time distribution of various types of water bodies at the nodes, and the law of regional differentiation. The basic data is downloaded from DIVA-GIS, and is subset and resampled by administrative boundary dataset of all 31 key nodes as the research areas. The data concludes the distribution of lakes and reservoirs (planar River system) and rivers (linear River basin) . Finally, the data of water system and river basin in 31 key node regions are stored and obtained. This data set serves as the research basis for all hydrological remote sensing data and provides hydrological base data for the project. This data set can be updated in real time according to the government information and the changing trend of water system where node is located.
