Data of aerosol types in the three polar region V1.0 (2006-2019)

The three pole aerosol type data product is an aerosol type result obtained by integrating the data assimilation of Meera 2 and the active satellite CALIPSO product through a series of data preprocessing, quality control, statistical analysis and comparative analysis. The key of this algorithm is to judge the type of CALIPSO aerosol. In the process of aerosol type data fusion, according to the type and quality control of CALIPSO aerosol, and referring to the type of merra 2 aerosol, the final aerosol type data (12 kinds in total) and quality control results in the three pole area are obtained. The data product fully considers the vertical distribution and spatial distribution of aerosols, with high spatial resolution (0.625 ° × 0.5 °) and time resolution (month).


Arctic high latitude and polar sea ice density (assessment product) (2002-2018)

Sea ice is the ice formed by the freezing of sea water on the sea surface, and the re freezing of precipitation on the sea ice surface also becomes a part of sea ice. Sea ice changes not only affect the stratification, stability and convection of the ocean, but also affect the large-scale temperature and salt environment. In addition, due to the high albedo and insulation of sea ice, it can change the radiation state of the polar surface and affect the energy and material exchange between air and sea. The change of sea ice not only affects the local marine ecological environment and the local atmospheric environment, but also affects the weather and climate of other regions in the way of remote correlation through complex feedback process. Through the evaluation, this data set presents four parameters related to polar sea ice: sea ice density, range, thickness and albedo. To provide a basis for the study of polar and global climate change.


The Ice-core Dataset in Three Pole (1968-2015)

The data of triode ice core mainly comes from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, The original data is mainly in text format, which is provided by relevant units and researchers voluntarily. The data mainly includes the original observation data such as oxygen isotope, greenhouse gas concentration, ice core age, etc., as well as the historical temperature, carbon dioxide concentration and methane concentration produced by the researchers according to the observation data. The data are mainly divided into Antarctic, Arctic, Greenland and the third polar region. The database includes drilling address, time, derivative products, corresponding observation site data, references and other elements. Derivative products include product name, type, time and other elements. The space location is divided into the south pole, the north pole and the third pole, including Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland and other regions. After sorting and post-processing the collected data, the ice core database is established by using the access database management system of Microsoft office. According to the Antarctic, Arctic, Greenland and the third pole, it is divided into four sub databases. The first table in each database is readme, which contains information and references of each data table.


Typical glacial velocity dataset of the north and south poles of the QTP (2000-2017) v1.0

Glaciers are very sensitive to regional and global climate change, so they are often regarded as one of the indicators of climate change, and their relevant parameters are also the key indicators of climate change research. Especially in the comparative study of the three polar environmental changes on the earth, the time and space difference ratio of glacial speed is one of the focuses of climate change research. However, because glaciers are basically located in high altitude, high latitude and high cold areas, the natural environment is poor, and people are rarely seen, and it is difficult to carry out the conventional field measurement of large-scale glacial movement. In order to understand the glacial movement in the three polar areas in a timely, efficient, comprehensive and accurate manner, radar interferometry, radar and optical image pixel tracking are used to obtain the three polar areas. The distribution of surface movement of some typical glaciers in some years from 2000 to 2017 provides basic data for the comparative analysis of the movement of the three polar glaciers. The dataset contains 12 grid files named "glacier movement in a certain period of time in a certain region". Each grid map mainly contains the regional velocity distribution of a typical glacier.
