Reconstruction data set of mass balance of seven glaciers in Qinghai Tibet Plateau (1975-2013)

The data set includes the mass balances of Hailuogou Glacier, Parlung No.94 Glacier, Qiyi glacier, Xiaodongkemadi Glacier, Muztagh No.15 Glacier, Meikuang Glacier and NM551 Glacier in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau from 1975 to 2013. Based on several mass balance observations collected from World Glacier Inventory (https://nsidc.org/data/g10002/versions/1) and The Third Pole Environment Database (http://en.tpedatabase.cn/, doi:10.11888/GlaciologyGeocryology.tpe.96.db) by Tandong Yao and the meteorological data obtained from Global Land Assimilation System (GLDAS), the mass balances of the above seven glaciers from 1975 to 2013 are reconstructed by using the glacier material balance calculation formula. This reconstruction data is based on the published glacier material balance data to calibrate the parameters in the glacier material balance formula, and to reconstruct the long-time series material balance by using the glacier material balance formula, in which the parameter calibration results and the reconstruction results of the long-time series data are compared with the relevant research results, demonstrating the rationality of the data results Please refer to the following papers. The data can be used to study the change of water resources in the glacial region, expand the data set of Glacier Mass Balance in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, and provide reference for the future research of Glacier Mass Balance reconstruction.

The data of project on the impact of climate and glacier evolution on resources and sustainable development in Lijiang Yulong Snow Mountain Region

Impact of Climate and Glacier Evolution in Southwest Monsoon Region on Resources and Sustainable Development in Lijiang-Yulong Snow Mountain Region Project is a major research program of "Environmental and Ecological Science in Western China" sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation. The person in charge is a researcher from He Yuanqing, Institute of Environment and Engineering in Cold and Arid Regions, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The project runs from January 2004 to December 2006. This project collects data: the data of Yulong Snow Mountain Glacier and Environment Observation and Research Station are compiled in word document, and the data content includes: 1. Material Balance of Baishui Glacier No.1 from September to December 2008 (Profile, Lever, Accumulation and Dissipation) 2.Changes of Baishui Glacier No.1 in Yulong Snow Mountain from 1997 to 2008 (date, end elevation, end advancing and retreating distance, south advancing and retreating distance) 3. Monthly Average Flow Statistics of Mujia Station from 1979 to 2003 (Annual Average Flow, Annual Maximum Flow, Annual Maximum Time, Annual Minimum Flow, and Annual Minimum Time) 4. Meteorological data of the test station of Yulong Snow Mountain Glacier Observation Room From 2000 to 2008, the daily average temperature (℃), daily precipitation (mm), daily average relative humidity, daily average sunshine hours, daily air pressure value and daily average wind speed of the base camp weather station. From 2006 to 2008, Ganhaizi Meteorological Station daily average temperature (℃), daily precipitation (mm), daily average relative humidity, daily average sunshine hours, daily air pressure value and daily average wind speed In 2008, the day-to-day average temperature table (℃), day-to-day precipitation (mm), day-to-day average relative humidity, day-to-day average sunshine hours, day-to-day air pressure value and day-to-day average wind speed in the Baishui No.1 glacier accumulation area of Yulong Snow Mountain. In 2008, the day-to-day average temperature table (℃), day-to-day precipitation (mm), day-to-day average relative humidity, day-to-day average sunshine hours, day-to-day air pressure, and day-to-day average wind speed at the end of glacier Baishui No.1 in Yulong Snow Mountain were recorded.

Greenland ice sheet mass change data products (2002-2019)

This data set includes 2002/04-2019/12 Greenland ice sheet mass changes derived from satellite gravimetry measurements. The satellite gravimetry data come from the joint NASA/DLR Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment mission twin satellites (GRACE, 2002/04 to 2017/06) and its successor, GRACE Follow-On (GRACE-FO, 2018/06 to present). In order to fill the data gap between GRACE and GRACE-FO, we further utilize gravity field solutions derived from high-low GNSS tracking data of ESA's Swarm 3-satellite constellation whose primary scientific objective is geomagnetic surveying. The data set is provided in Matlab data format, the ice sheet mass changes are transformed to equivalent water height in meters, expressed on 0.25°x0.25° grid with monthly temporal resolution. This data set can be used to study the characteristics of Greenland ice sheet mass changes in recent two decades and their relation with the global climate change.

The dataset of global glacier monitoring mass balance (Version 1.0) (1950-2016)

Glacier monitoring mass balance data are the most direct and reliable data for glaciers responding to climate change. The data set of global glacier monitoring mass balance collects information on 76 glaciers and their glacier mass balance data, both with continuous (uninterrupted) observation time series and by collecting and arranging globally accessible mass balance data with a time resolution of one year from 1950 to 2016.
