Economy statistics of Qing-Tibet Plateau (1951-2016)

This data contains part of the economic indicators of Qinghai province and Tibet Autonomous Region. The data statistics based on provinces can be used to construct the evaluation index system for the coupling coordination relationship between urbanization and eco-environment on the Tibetan Plateau. The data of the Tibet Autonomous Region contains seven indicators, including the gross domestic product (GDP), the primary, secondary and tertiary industries, industry, construction industry, and the per capita GDP, the time span is 1951-2016. The time span of the data set of Qinghai province is from 1952 to 2015, besides the above seven indicators, there is one more indicator of Qinghai province called agriculture forwdtry animal husbandry and fishery. All data are derived from the statistical yearbook, which is calculated at current prices. The gross domestic product (GDP) for 2005-2008 has been revised based on data from the second economic census.


Population statistics of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (1952-2016)

This dataset is the population index, which includes the dataset of Qinghai Province and Tibet Autonomous Region. It can be used for the coupling coordination relationship between urbanization and eco-environment in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The time span in Tibet Autonomous Region is 1995-2016. Permanent residents is based on the population census and the annual population change sampling survey. In addition to the total permanent population, the data were also calculated by gender and urban and rural areas. The time span is from 1952 to 2015 in Qinghai Province, and the indices are resident population, birth, death and natural increase. All data is from the statistical yearbook.


Long time series data of snow cover area on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (2003-2014)

The long-time series data set of snow cover area on the qinghai-tibet plateau is derived from the fusion of MODIS 005 version and IMS data set, andThe cloud-free products of daily snow cover area were obtained by using interpolation de-cloud algorithm.The projection is latitude and longitude, the spatial resolution is 0.005 degrees (about 500m), and the time is a long time series from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2014. Each file is the result of the proportion of snow cover area on that day, and the value is 0-100 (%). It is the ENVI standard file, The naming convention: ims_mts_yyyyddd.tif, where YYYY stands for year and DDD stands for Julian day (001-365/366).Files can be directly used ENVI or ARCMAP software open view. Document description: 200 snow, 100 lake ice, 25 land, 37 sea


Time-lapse observation dataset of soil temperature and humidity on the Tibetan Plateau (2008-2016)

This data set comprises the plateau soil moisture and soil temperature observational data based on the Tibetan Plateau, and it is used to quantify the uncertainty of model products of coarse-resolution satellites, soil moisture and soil temperature. The observation data of soil temperature and moisture on the Tibetan Plateau (Tibet-Obs) are from in situ reference networks at four regional scales, which are the Nagqu network of cold and semiarid climate, the Maqu network of cold and humid climate, and the Ali network of cold and arid climate,and Pali network. These networks provided representative coverage of different climates and surface hydrometeorological conditions on the Tibetan Plateau. - Temporal resolution: 1hour - Spatial resolution: point measurement - Measurement accuracy: soil moisture, 0.00001; soil temperature, 0.1 °C; data set size: soil moisture and temperature measurements at nominal depths of 5, 10, 20, 40 - Unit: soil moisture, cm ^ 3 cm ^ -3; soil temperature, °C


Daily lake ice extent and cover proportion dataset of the Tibetan Plateau based on MODIS (2002-2018)

There are many lakes on the Tibetan Plateau. The phenology and duration of lake ice age in this area is very sensitive to regional and global climate change, so it is used as a key indicator of climate change research, especially the comparative study of environmental changes in the Earth's three poles. However, due to its harsh natural environment and sparse population, it lacked routine field measurements of lake ice phenology. Using the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) to normalize the Different Snow Index (NDSI) data, the lake ice was monitored at a resolution of 500 meters to fill the observation gap. The traditional snow map algorithm was used to detect the daily ice volume and coverage extent of lakes under sunny condition. The spatial and temporal continuity of lake surface conditions was applied to re-determine the daily ice volume and coverage extent of lakes under cloud cover condition through a series of steps. Time series analysis was performed on 308 lakes larger than 3 k㎡ to determine effective record of lake ice extent and coverage, then to form a daily lake ice extent and coverage data set. And furthermore, four lake ice phenological parameters: freeze-up start ( FUS), freeze-up end (FUE), break-up start (BUS), and break-up end (BUE) can be obtained from 216 lakes of the data set, and two parameters: FUS and BUE can be obtained from the other 92 lakes.
