I. overview

The data set includes wind and sand activity data of Ulanbuh Desert and Kubuqi Desert along the upper Yellow River from April to May 2011 and April 2012, mainly including wind speed profile, surface roughness, wind-sand flow structure, sand transport rate data under different vegetation coverage and different parts of sand dunes.

II. Data Processing Instructions

The wind speed and direction are observed by 014A wind speed sensor 024A wind direction sensor and CR200 data acquisition instrument produced by MetOne company, and the sediment transport amount is observed by stepped sediment collection instrument.

III. Description of Data Content

The data are stored in EXCEL table, mainly including wind speed profile, surface roughness, wind-sand flow structure and sand transport rate data under different vegetation coverage.

IV. Data Usage Instructions
