    Alpine Grassland Productivity Not Sensitive to Climate Warming on Third Pole

    The Tibetan Plateau has experienced more rapid climate warming than the global average, coupled with greater interannual variation in precipitation over the past 50 years. How will such dramatic climate change influence the structure and function of alpine grasslands? Interest in this topic is hi...

    Detection of Spatio-temporal Variability of Air Temperature and Precipitation...

    Based on meteorological station records during 1960–2016, scientists detected the variations of air temperature and precipitation by using non-parametric method in the different sub-regions and different elevations of the Tianshan Mountains. The mutations of climate were investigated by Mann-Ken...

    Dissolved Organic Carbon Fractionation Accelerates Glacier-melting: A Case St...

    In glacierized regions, melting process has a significant effect on concentrations and light absorption characteristics of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), potentially resulting in variations of its radiative forcing, which is not yet relevant research at glacier region of the Tibetan Plateau (TP).

    'Impossible To Save': Scientists Are Watching China's Glaciers Disappear

    Xinjiang, a land of mountains, forests and deserts, is four times the size of California and is home to 20,000 glaciers — nearly half of all the glaciers in China. Since the 1950s, all of Xinjiang's glaciers have retreated by between 21 percent to 27 percent

    China and Nepal Collaborate on Glacier Research

    China and Nepal have developed a close collaboration in glacier research. By sampling data on the north (Chinese) and south (Nepali) sides of the Himalayas, scientists from both countries can trace the movement of black carbon and heavy metals from South Asia across the mountains into the Tibetan...

    The Chinese Glacier with Three Names

    A visit to a research station in the Qilian Mountains of western China brought the author to a glacier whose meltwater supplies oases along the Silk Road. Reflecting the region's long history, the glacier has three names, one of them very surprising.
