Data Set ID:

Permafrost-related micrometeorology and soil temperatures, Qingzang Plateau, China, Version 1

These data sets include Surface Meteorological Data (D100, D105, Tanggula Pass, Wetland), Ground Temperature (D100, D105, Tanggula Pass, Wetland), Soil Moisture Data, Evaporation, and soil physical properties. These data sets include maximum, mean, minimum air temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, global solar radiation, reflected solar radiation, atmospheric pressure, ground surface and soil temperature, soil moisture content, and soil physical properties. Numerous papers have been published by the investigators using these data sets; references are not available as of March 1998. These data are presented on the CAPS Version 1.0 CD-ROM, June 1998.
