Data of annual lake area in the endorheic basin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau from 1986 to 2019

This data provides the annual lake area of ​​582 lakes with an area greater than 1 km2 in the enorheic basin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau from 1986 to 2019. First, based on JRC and SRTM DEM data, 582 lakes are identified in the area that are larger than 1 km2. All Landsat 5/7/8 remote sensing images covering a lake are used to make annual composite images. NDWI index and Ostu algorithm were used to dynamically segment lakes, and the size of each lake from 1986 to 2019 is then calculated. This study is based on the Landsat satellite remote sensing images, and using Google Earth Engine allowed us to process all Landsat images available to create the most complete annual lake area data set of more than 1 km2 in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau area; A set of lake area automatic extraction algorithms were developed to calculate of the area of ​​a lake for many years; This data is of great significance for the analysis of lake area dynamics and water balance in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau region, as well as the study of the climate change of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau lake.

MODIS inversion of Lake transparency over 50 km2 in the Tibetan Plateau (2000-2019)

1) data content (including elements and significance): transparency data of 152 lakes greater than 50 km2 in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau in 2000-2019 (Saybolt disk value) 2) Data source and processing method: the data inversion is based on the high-precision transparency inversion model and modis-modocga product data. The remote sensing data is converted into the remote sensing reflectivity R ﹐ RS inversion transparency value, and the annual mean value is calculated. The average value of 3 × 3 pixels in the geometric center of the lake represents the lake. For the case where the geometric center is located outside the lake, the open water area of the lake is taken for calculation. 3) Data quality description: annual average value of lakes. 4) Results and prospects of data application: climate change may change Lake transparency, while the change of Lake transparency will play a feedback role in regional climate change. In this study, the inversion of Lake transparency in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau provides basic data for the energy exchange of the lake air interface.

Data set of recent Lake area and water volume changes in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau (1976-2013)

1) area data of 317 lakes larger than 10 km2 in 1976, 1990, 2000, 2005 and 2013 were obtained based on multi temporal Landsat images; 2) Combining SRTM DEM and Landsat images, the data of lake water volume change in 1976-1990, 1990-2000, 2000-2005 and 2005-2013 were obtained; 3) The accuracy of Lake area is controlled in one pixel, and the accuracy of water volume change is about 5%; 4) This data has been applied to the study of recent changes in lake water volume in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, and the results have been published in remote sensing of environment. In other future studies, this data can also be used as basic data, as well as in the analysis of changes in ecological environment, climate change, Lake water quality, etc

Water temperature observation data at Nam Co Lake in Tibet (2011-2014)

This data includes the daily average water temperature data at different depths of Nam Co Lake in Tibet which is obtained through field monitoring. The data is continuously recorded by deploying the water quality multi-parameter sonde and temperature thermistors in the water with the resolution of 10 minutes and 2 hours, respectively, and the daily average water temperature is calculated based on the original observed data. The instruments and methods used are very mature and data processing is strictly controlled to ensure the authenticity and reliability of the data; the data has been used in the basic research of physical limnology such as the study of water thermal stratification, the study of lake-air heat balance, etc., and to validate the lake water temperature data derived from remote sensing and different lake models studies. The data can be used in physical limnology, hydrology, lake-air interaction, remote sensing data assimilation verification and lake model research.

Water quality slope data of Co Ngoin Lake (2017)

The data set includes the vertical profile of water quality and the multi-parameter data of surface water quality of Selincho Lake during the investigation of the sources of rivers and lakes from June to July of 2017. The main water quality parameters measured are dissolved oxygen, conductivity, pH, water temperature, etc. YSI EXO2 water quality multi-parameter measuring instrument is calibrated according to lake surface elevation and local pressure before each measurement. The time interval of measurement is set at 0.25s, and the speed of putting in is slow, so he high continuity of data acquisition is guaranteed. The original data obtained include the measured data exposed to air above the water surface, which are eliminated in the later processing.
