The Watershed Allied Telemetry Experimental Research (WATER) is an airborne, satellite- and ground-based integrated remote sensing experiment aiming to improve the observing ability of remote sensing technique, and understanding and predictability of hydrological and related ecological processes on catchment scale. Under the auspices of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), it was started as a CAS’s West Action Plan project, and later was jointly supported by the State Key Basic Research Project “Theory and method for a synthetic retrieval of terrestrial ecological variables from both active and passive remote sensing approaches” under the auspices of the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST).

The Data Citation Index (DCI) , a new product by Thomson Reuters, on the Web of Science provides a single point of access to quality research data from repositories across disciplines and around the world.


Through linked content and summary information, this data is displayed within the broader context of the scholarly research, enabling users to gain perspective that is lost when data sets or repositories are viewed in isolation. These connections allow researchers to efficiently access to an array of data across subjects and regions, providing a comprehensive picture of research output, to maximize research efforts and accurately assess importance.



WATER datasets has published in Cold and Arid Regions Science Data Center (CARD), the Chinese version is available at http://westdc.westgis.ac.cn/water , and it is indexed by DCI now.
