The dataset of intensive rain gauges observations was obtained in the arid region hydrology experiment area, in cooperation with dual polarized doppler radar observations. There was no single dataset for the upper stream observations for the poor quality; the middle stream dataset was collected by 29 RG3-M self-recording rain gauges: the northernmost (100.36°E, 39.16°N), the southernmost (100.34°E, 38.61°N), the easternmost (100.62°E, 38.87°N), and the westernmost (100.26°E, 38.82°N). Rain gauges R02-R09 measured from May 18 to Oct. 9, 2008, and R10-R30 from May 26 to Oct. 9, 2008. The technique criterions of these rain gauges were : (1) caliber: 165mm×254mm (2) the temperature range: 0°C —+70°C (3) resolution: 0.2mm (4) the measuring range: 0—320cm (5) the measuring accuracy: 1%
The dataset of the drop spectrometer observations was obtained at an interval of 30 seconds in the cold region hydrology experimental area from Mar. 14 to Apr. 14, 2008. The site was chosen in A'rou (N39.06°, E100.44°, 3002m), Qilian county, Qinghai province. The data mainly included the raindrop grain size and the terminal velocity. Besides, dual polarized radar (X-band) parameters such as ZDR and KDR could be further developed based on those data. The observation was carried out within an area of 5400mm^2; the liquid grain diameter was from 0.2-5mm, and the solid grain diameter was from 0.2-25mm.
The dataset of intensive runoff observations was obtained by the cup type current meter (made in Chongqing Hydrological Instrument Factory) in the Binggou watershed foci experimental area from Jan. 17, 2008 to Dec. 31, 2009. Data directions included: (1) the regular observation before Mar. 14, 2008, once per day; the intensive observation from Mar. 15, 2008 to Apr. 1, 2008, 7-8 times per day and even hourly for some intensive observations (2) three times (9, 14 and 19 BJT) per day from May 3, 2008 to Sep. 17, 2008; from Sep. 17, 2008 on, two times (9 and 18 BJT) per day; the water runoff by evenly spaced method, 20cm, 40cm and 80cm based on different situations The data were named after WATER_Runoff_BG_yyyymmdd-yyyymmdd.csv (WATER_Runoff_BG for Ginggou, yyyymmdd-yyyymmdd for the observation time). The missing data were marked "None".
