The Landsat MSS image Datasets over Heihe River Basin (1972-1978)

On July 23, 1972, the United States launched the world's first resource satellite "Landsat 1" , and Landsat 2 and Landsat 3 were launched in the following 10 years. These three satellites were the first generation of resource satellites. They were equipped withreturn-beam vidicon cameras and multi-spectral scanners (MSS) with 3 and 4 spectral segments respectively, a resolution of 79m and a width of 185Km. There are 28 scenes of MSS data in Heihe River Basin currently which were obtained on the following dates: 1972-10-14, 1972-10-30, 1973-01-10, 1973-01-31, 1973-02-16, 1973-06-04, 1973. -10-07, 1973-10-28 (2 scenes), 1973-12-22, 1974-01-05, 1975-10-07, 1975-10-09, 1976-07-04, 1976-10-18 , 1976-11-07, 1976-11-27, 1976-12-30, 1977-01-19, 1977-02-07, 1977-04-20, 1977-05-06 (2 scenes), 1977-05 -08, 1977-06-10, 1977-06-29, 1977-07-18, 1978-10-09. Ortho rectification was performed on the images.

GIMMS3g NDVI-based phenology for Sanjiangyuan (1982-2015)

The data set includes the estimated data on the SOS (start of season) and the EOS (end of season) of vegetation in Sanjiangyuan based on GIMMS3g version 1.0, the latest version of the GIMMS NDVI data set. Two common phenological estimation methods were adopted: the threshold extraction method based on polynomial fitting (the term “poly” was included in the file names) and the inflection point extraction method based on double logistic function fitting (the term “sig” was included in the file names). These data can be used to analyse the relationship between vegetation phenology and climate change. The temporal coverage ranges from 1982 to 2015, and the spatial resolution is 8 km.

WATER: Dataset of ground truth measurements for snow synchronizing with the airborne PHI mission in the Binggou watershed foci experimental area (Mar. 24, 2008)

The dataset of ground truth measurements for snow synchronizing with the airborne PHI mission was obtained in the Binggou watershed foci experimental area on Mar. 24, 2008. Observation items included: (1) Snow density, snow complex permittivity, snow volumetric moisture and snow gravimetric moisture by the Snowfork in BG-A. (2) Snow parameters as the snow surface temperature by the handheld infrared thermometer, the snow layer temperature by the probe thermometer, the snow grain size by the handheld microscope, and snow density by the aluminum case in BG-A1, BG-A2, BG-B, BG-D, BG-E and BG-F5 (three sampling units each) from 11:11-12:35 (BJT) with the airplane overpass. 64 points were selected by four groups. (3) Snow albedo by the total radiometer in BG-A. (4) The snow spectrum by ASD (Xinjiang Meteorological Administration) in BG-A11 Two files including raw data and preprocessed data were archived.

MODIS NDVI based phpenology for Sanjiangyuan (2001-2014)

The data set includes estimated data on the SOS (start of season) and the EOS (end of season) of vegetation in Sanjiangyuan based on the MODIS 16-day synthetic NDVI product (MOD13A2 collection 6). Two common phenological estimation methods were adopted: the threshold extraction method based on polynomial fitting (the term “poly” was included in the file names) and the inflection point extraction method based on double logistic function fitting (the term “sig” was included in the file names). These data can be used to analyse the relationship between vegetation phenology and climate change. The temporal coverage ranges from 2001 to 2014, and the spatial resolution is 1 km.

GF-1 NDVI dataset in Maduo County (2016)

This is the vegetation index (NDVI) for Maduo County in July, August and September of 2016. It is obtained through calculation based on the multispectral data of GF-1. The spatial resolution is 16 m. The GF-1 data are processed by mosaicking, projection coordinating, data subsetting and other methods. The maximum synthesis is then conducted every month in July, August, and September.

WATER: IKONOS dataset on Nov. 05, 2005

The IKONOS satellite is a commercial satellite launched by the Space Imaging EOSAT on September 24, 1999. It is the world's first commercial remote sensing satellite to provide high-resolution satellite images. The successful launch of the IKONOS satellite not only provides satellite images with high definition and a resolution of up to 1 meter, but also opens up a new way to obtain the latest basic geographic information faster and more economically, and create a new standard of commercial satellite images. The orbital altitude is 681km, the orbital inclination is 98.1 degrees, and the revisit period is 1.5-2.9. days. It has 4 multi-spectral bands and 1 full-color band with spatial resolutions of 1 and 4 meters, respectively. The Heihe River Basin currently has 1 scene of IKONOS data which covers the ice-channel watershed encryption observation area, and the acquisition time is November 5,2005. The image includes a full-color image with a spatial resolution of 1m and a multi-spectral image with a spatial resolution of 4m. The product grade is L2, and it is geometrically corrected. IKONOS data is mainly used as high-resolution background data in the Heihe experiment. IKONOS data was purchased and mainly used as high-resolution background data in the Heihe experiment.
