A spatiotemporal dataset for knowledge discovery on population, environment and development in China

Descriptions of the spatial and temporal variations in population and their interactions with the environment and development are highly required to better respond to the population problems associated with social, political and environmental issues. Here, we present a dataset for knowledge discovery on correlations between population, environment and development in China. The dataset comprises it...

Competitive spatiotemporal dataset on population distribution and its natural-social-economic driving factors from 1949 to 2013

Spatiotemporal data of human populations and its driving factors including environmental factors and social and economic conditions, is critical in order to better understand and respond to the population problems. Unfortunately, spatiotemporal data on populations and their driving factors on a large scale and over the long term are often difficult to obtain directly. We present a dataset on the C...

Dataset of near-surface air temperature lapse rates in the mainland China during 1962-2011

Land surface hydrological modeling is sensitive to near-surface air temperature, which is especially true for the cryosphere. The lapse rate of near-surface air temperature is a critical parameter when interpolating air temperature from station data to gridded cells. To obtain spatially distributed, fine-resolution near-surface (2 m) air temperature in the mainland China, monthly air temperature f...
