Precipitation during the growing season in Pailougou watershed (2011-2013)

Precipitation is one of the elements of meteorological monitoring and a measurement basis of regional precipitation. Precipitation is the only source of water for plants’ survival in mountain areas. Therefore, precipitation is the main link of the forest hydrological cycle. This data only provides precipitation of the Pailugou watershed during the growing season.


Qinhai spruce canopy conductance in Pailougou watershed (2011-2013)

Canopy conductance (mm s-1) is a sensitive index of forest transpiration response to environmental factors, and is a key parameter in water and carbon exchange model. The data is obtained by expanding the water consumption scale measured by stem sap flow technology to the stand scale to obtain the water consumption of the stand, and then using penman equation to calculate. This data mainly provides basic data for some eco hydrological models.


Soil evaporation dataset of Qinghai spruce stand at 2800m above sea level in Pailougou watershed (2011-2013)

Soil evaporation in forest land is a process in which water in soil enters the atmosphere from the soil surface through rising and vaporizing. Soil evaporation affects the change of soil water content, which is an important part of hydrological cycle. The data were observed by the mini lysmeter evaporation tube, which was designed to provide data support for the study of water vertical exchange rule of Picea crassifolia forest.


Qinghai spruce canopy interception at 2800m above sea level in Pailougou watershed (2011-2013)

Forest canopy interception refers to the hydrological process in which part of water is intercepted and received by forest canopy and redistributed to precipitation in the process of precipitation. The data include precipitation, throughfall, canopy interception and interception rate, which are mainly used to provide data support for understanding the eco hydrological process of Picea crassifolia forest.


The groundwater table data set in the lower of Heihe River (2011-2013)

Groundwater is the main water source of desert riparian plants, and also the most important environmental factor affecting the normal physiological status of plants. In this project, an observation field was set up in Populus euphratica forest near the Alxa Desert eco hydrological experimental research station from 2011 to 2013 By manually measuring the groundwater depth every month in the year, it can provide basic data support for the study on the transpiration water consumption mechanism of Populus euphratica, and also can be used for the estimation of ecological water demand in the study area.


Weather data at 2800m above sea level in Qinhai spruce stand of Pailougou watershed

Meteorological elements are indicators of atmospheric variables or phenomena indicating weather conditions at a given place and at a given time. We used automatic forest weather station to monitor the meteorological elements data of Pailugou Watershed at 2800m above sea level. The main meteorological elements monitored include total radiation, net radiation, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction, which basically reflect the changes in meteorological elements in the Qinghai spruce forest.
