Release time:2020-10-11 07:05
Based on the research on the response of glaciers to climate change and the impact on water resources and disasters in Western China, the main glacial central action areas in Western China are selected: Youyi peak area of Altai mountain, Daxue mountain and lenglong mountain area of Qilian Mountain, Bogda and Tomur peak area of Tianshan Mountain, MUZTAG mountain, qiaogoli peak area, main mountain peak key glacier area of Kunlun Mountain and Gongga mountain In the main peak area, remote sensing is used as the main data acquisition method, combined with the field ice surface elevation survey, to carry out the ice quantity change investigation. Mass balance observation and repeated GPS measurements were carried out on Typical Glaciers (No.1 glacier of Urumqi River, No.12 glacier of Laohugou Valley, No.71 glacier of Qilian Mountain, coal mine glacier in Kunlun Mountain and No.1 glacier in Baishuihe River) to monitor the change process of ice amount, and to form the special data of glacier ice amount change of major glaciation centers in Western China. Among them, the data of Glacier Mass Balance and subglacial topography are still in the one-year protection period, and other data have been open to access.
