Data set of soil freezing depth in the future scenario of Qinghai Tibet Plateau Based on Stefan equation (2007-20172046-2065)

Soil freezing depth (SFD) is necessary to evaluate the balance of water resources, surface energy exchange and biogeochemical cycle change in frozen soil area. It is an important indicator of climate change in the cryosphere and is very important to seasonal frozen soil and permafrost. This data is based on Stefan equation, using the daily temperature prediction data and E-factor data of canems2 (rcp45 and rcp85), gfdl-esm2m (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85), hadgem2-es (rcp26, rcp45 and rcp85), ipsl-cm5a-lr (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85), miroc5 (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85) and noresm1-m (rcp26, rcp45, rcp60 and rcp85), The data set of annual average soil freezing depth in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau with a spatial resolution of 0.25 degrees from 2007 to 2065 was obtained.

Basic dataset of soil over the Great Lakes in Central Asia - Soil (2015)

Soil is mineral particles of different sizes formed by weathering of rocks. Soil not only provides nutrients and water for crops, but also has a transforming effect on various nutrients. In addition, the soil also has a self-cleaning function, which can improve organic matter content, soil temperature and humidity, pH value, anion and cation. The soil pollution causes several environmental problems: industrial sewage, acid rain, exhaust emissions, accumulations, agricultural pollution. After the land is polluted, the contaminated tops with high concentration of heavy metals are easily entered under the action of wind and water. Other secondary ecological and environmental problems such as air pollution, surface water pollution, groundwater pollution and ecosystem degradation in the atmosphere and water.he data set comes from the World Soil Database (Harmonized World Soil Database version 1.1) (HWSD) UN Food and Agriculture (FAO) and the Vienna International Institute for Applied Systems Research Institute (IIASA) constructed, which provides data model input parameters for the modeler, At the same time, it provides a basis for research on ecological agriculture, food security and climate change.

Data set of soil physicochemical properties in river and lake source (2020)

Field surveys and soil sample collection were carried out in river and lake source of the Tibet Autonomous Region, and a total of 150 soil samples were collected, from August to September 2020. The data set includes serial number, plot number, latitude and longitude, altitude, soil moisture content, bulk density, organic matter, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, total potassium, pH and mechanical composition (sand, silt and clay content). The data format is an Excel table . The determination of various soil properties refers to the requirements of the "Technical Specifications for Soil Environmental Quality Monitoring" and is obtained through field sampling and indoor testing. Soil bulk density was measured in 5–10 cm and 15–20 cm soil layers, respectively. The mechanical composition is divided into sand (2–0.02 mm), silt (0.02–0.002 mm) and clay (< 0.002 mm) according to the International System of Classification. The soil is removed from impurities such as gravel and roots and crushed. The determination of soil organic matter, total nitrogen, total phosphorus and total potassium is a complete sample. The pH was determined by potentiometric method, and the water-soil ratio was 2.5:1. The collection of soil samples refers to the soil sample collection specifications, and the indoor analysis and testing refers to standard analysis methods. The data quality is controlled by measuring duplicate samples and standard samples. This data can provide data supporting for comprehensive assessment of the environmental effects of typical land use changes.

Basic soil property dataset of high-resolution China Soil Information Grids (2010-2018)

Soil is the basis of human survival and development. Many United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are directly related to the utilization and management of soil resources. However, most of the existing soil information in the world and China comes from historical soil survey, which is coarse and out-of-date, and can not meet the needs of dealing with global and regional problems such as food security, water shortage, land degradation and climate change. China has a vast territory with complex and diverse soil landscape and strong human activities. The establishment of high-precision soil information grid is of great significance in scientific frontier breakthrough and has broad prospects in applications. Here, we adopted predictive soil mapping paradigm and developed adaptive depth function fitting method and integrated it with state-of-the-art ensemble machine learning in a high performance parallel computing environment to generate 90-m resolution national gridded maps of soil properties (soil organic carbon, pH value, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, total potassium, cation exchange capacity, coarse fragments (> 2mm), sand, silt, clay, soil texture classes, bulk density, soil thickness, etc.) at multiple depths across China. Their uncertainty in soil predictions is also estimated in a spatial way. This was based on more than 5000 representative soil profile samples obtained from the "project of National Soil Series Survey and Compilation of Soil Series of China" in recent years and a suite of detailed covariates to characterize soil-forming environments using geographical information and remote sensing techniques. Compared with previous soil maps, we achieved significantly more detailed and accurate predictions which could well represent soil variations across the territory. This work has constructed China's first version of high-resolution National Soil Information Grids, which is also a significant contribution to the GlobalSoilMap.net project. It is expected to have a wide application prospect in the fields of soil resources, agriculture, hydrology, ecology, climate, environment and so on, such as soil monitoring and management, soil function evaluation, land surface process modelling and forensic soil evidence provenance.
