Based on the 33rd Antarctic Scientific Expedition in China, the data set of temporal and spatial distribution of metal element concentrations in snow and ice obtained on the section from Zhongshan Station to Dome A in East Antarctica mainly includes: 1. A shallow ice core obtained 202 km away from Zhongshan Station. The ice core covers the period from 1990 to 2017 with a resolution of years, including metal element iron, hydrogen and oxygen isotopes and other data. 2. Collect a sample every 10km along the Zhongshan Station Dome A section in East Antarctica. The metal elements include rare earth elements, barium and other elements. The data can be used to study the pollution and contribution of natural sources and human activities to Antarctic snow and ice.
Different forms of precipitation (snow, sleet, and rain) have divergent effects on the Earth’s surface water and energy fluxes. Therefore, discriminating between these forms is of significant importance, especially under a changing climate. We applied a state-of-the-art parameterization scheme with wet-bulb temperature, relative humidity, surface air pressure, and elevation as inputs, as well as observational gridded datasets with a maximum spatial resolution of 0.25◦, to generate a gridded dataset of different forms of daily precipitation (snow, sleet, and rain) and their temperature threshold across mainland China from 1961-2016. The annual snow, sleet, and rain amount were further calculated. The dataset may benefit various research communities, such as cryosphere science, hydrology, ecology, and climate change.
