A long term global daily soil moisture dataset derived from AMSR-E and AMSR2 (2002-2020)

This dataset contains 18 years (2002-2020) global spatio-temporal consistent surface soil moisture . The resolution is 36 km at daily scale, and the data unit is m3 / m3. This dataset adopts the soil moisture neural network retrieval algorithm developed by Yao et al. (2017). This study transfers the merits of SMAP to AMSR-E/2 through using an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) in which SMAP standard SSM products serve as training targets with AMSR-E/2 brightness temperature (TB) as input. Finally, long term soil moisture data are output. The accuracy is about 5% volumetric water content. (evaluation accuracy of 14 dense ground network globally.)

Data set of soil physical and chemical indexes of temperate grassland in Eurasia (1981-2019)

In the past 50 years, under the background of global climate change, with the increase of population and economic development, Eurasian grassland has been seriously degraded. One belt, one road surface, is a key indicator of grassland quality. Its spatial temporal pattern and distribution can directly reflect the degradation of grassland. Effective assessment of grassland quality is of great significance for the sustainable development of the countries along the border and the promotion of China's "one belt and one road" strategy. In previous studies, there is room for improvement in accuracy and accuracy of spatial and temporal distribution of soil properties. With the development of geographic information system, global positioning system, various sensors and soil mapping technology, digital soil mapping has gradually become an efficient method to express the spatial distribution of soil. Based on soil landscape science and spatial autocorrelation theory, this study combined multi-source sample data and environmental covariate data, and used machine learning model to predict the spatial distribution of surface soil attributes of warm grassland in Eurasia around 2000. In order to solve the problem of soil sample standardization, the equal area spline function was used to fit the soil properties of different profiles to the soil properties of 20 cm in the surface layer, and the soil particle distribution parameter model was used to transform the classification standards of different soil textures into the United States system. In order to solve the problem of insufficient number of soil samples, pseudo expert observation points were used to supplement soil organic matter and sand content samples in under sampling area; stepwise regression combined with support vector machine model was used, and effective soil bulk density simulation samples were screened by calculating threshold. According to the characteristics of complex terrain and climate conditions, combined with multi-source remote sensing data, ngboost model is applied to mine the relationship between soil attributes and environmental landscape factors (topography, climate, vegetation, soil type, etc.) and spatial location based on sample points, and to predict soil organic matter, sand content and bulk density in the study area from 1980 to 1999 and 2000 to 2019 respectively, and the uncertainty of corresponding indicators is given Spatial distribution of sex. The spatial distribution trend of the simulated soil attribute indexes is consistent with the actual situation. Before 2000, the soil organic matter content, bulk density and sand content were 0.64, 0.35 and 0.44 respectively, and the RMSE were 0.25, 0.07 and 13.94 respectively; after 2000, the RMSE were 0.79, 0.77 and 0.86 respectively, and the RMSE were 0.2, 0.13 and 6.61 respectively. The results show that this method can effectively retrieve the soil physical and chemical properties of temperate grassland in Eurasia, and provide a basis for the evaluation of grassland degradation and the construction of grassland quality evaluation system.

Field soil survey and analysis data in the upper reaches of Heihe River Basin (2013-2014)

The dataset is the field soil measurement and analysis data of the upstream of Heihe River Basin from 2013 to 2014, including soil particle analysis, water characteristic curve, saturated water conductivity, soil porosity, infiltration analysis, and soil bulk density I. Soil particle analysis 1. The soil particle size data were measured in the particle size laboratory of the Key Laboratory of the Ministry of Education, West Ministry of Lanzhou University.The measuring instrument is Marvin laser particle size meter MS2000. 2. Particle size data were measured by laser particle size analyzer.As a result, sample points with large particles cannot be measured, such as D23 and D25 cannot be measured without data.Plus partial sample missing. Ii. Soil moisture characteristic curve 1. Centrifuge method: The unaltered soil of the ring-cutter collected in the field was put into the centrifuge, and the rotor weight of each time was measured with the rotation speed of 0, 310, 980, 1700, 2190, 2770, 3100, 5370, 6930, 8200 and 11600 respectively. 2. The ring cutter is numbered from 1 to the back according to the number. Since three groups are sampled at different places at the same time, in order to avoid repeated numbering, the first group is numbered from 1, the second group is numbered from 500, and the third group is numbered from 1000.It's consistent with the number of the sampling point.You can find the corresponding number in the two Excel. 3. The soil bulk density data in 2013 is supplementary to the sampling in 2012, so the data are not available at every point.At the same time, the soil layer of some sample points is not up to 70 cm thick, so the data of 5 layers cannot be taken. At the same time, a large part of data is missing due to transportation and recording problems.At the same time, only one layer of data is selected by random points. 4. Weight after drying: The drying weight of some samples was not measured due to problems with the oven during the experiment. 3. Saturated water conductivity of soil 1. Description of measurement method: The measurement method is based on the self-made instrument of Yiyanli (2009) for fixing water hair.The mariot bottle was used to keep the constant water head during the experiment.At the same time, the measured Ks was finally converted to the Ks value at 10℃ for analysis and calculation.Detailed measurement record table refer to saturation conductivity measurement description.K10℃ is the data of saturated water conductivity after conversion to 10℃.Unit: cm/min. 2. Data loss explanation: The data of saturated water conductivity is partly due to the lack of soil samples and the insufficient depth of the soil layer to obtain the data of the 4th or 5th layer 3. Sampling time: July 2014 4. Soil porosity 1. Use bulk density method to deduce: according to the relationship between soil bulk density and soil porosity. 2. The data in 2014 is supplementary to the sampling in 2012, so the data are not available at every point.At the same time, the soil layer of some sample points is not up to 70 cm thick, so the data of 5 layers cannot be taken. At the same time, a large part of data is missing due to transportation and recording problems.At the same time, only one layer of data is selected by random points. 5. Soil infiltration analysis 1. The infiltration data were measured by the "MINI DISK PORTABLE specific vector INFILTROMETER".The approximate saturation water conductivity under a certain negative pressure is obtained.The instrument is detailed in website: http://www.decagon.com/products/hydrology/hydraulic-conductivity/mini-disk-portable-tension-infiltrometer/ 2.D7 infiltration tests were not measured at that time because of rain. Vi. Soil bulk density 1. The bulk density of soil in 2014 refers to the undisturbed soil taken by ring cutter based on the basis of 2012. 2. The soil bulk density is dry soil bulk density, which is measured by drying method.The undisturbed ring-knife soil samples collected in the field were kept in an oven at 105℃ for 24 hours, and the dry weight of the soil was divided by the soil volume (100 cubic centimeters). 3. Unit: G /cm3
