WATER: Dataset of airborne WiDAS mission in the Linze station-Linze grassland flight zone on Jul. 11, 2008

The dataset of airborne WiDAS mission was obtained in the Linze station-Linze grassland flight zone on Jul. 11, 2008. Intra-band data available for general users include Level-2C data (after geometric, radiometric and atmospheric corrections), Level-1B browse image (after intra-band matching) and Level-2B browse image (after registration). The raw data, Level-1A, and data processing parameters were filed; applications would be evaluated prior to access. Data processing started in Aug. 2008 and ended in Apr. 2009, and in Nov. 2009, CCD data were reprocessed to adjust radiometric calibration. The flying time of each route was as follows: {| ! id ! flight ! relative height ! starttime ! endtime ! data size ! data state ! data quality ! ground targets |- | 1 || 1#13 || 1500m || 1:52:06 || 11:58:02 || 90 || processed; compelete || good || Pingchuan reservoir |- | 2 || 1#11 || 1500m || 12:11:38 || 12:09:54 || 95 || processed; compelete || good || Linze grassland station |- | 3 || 1#9 || 1500m || 12:14:58 || 12:20:42 || 87 || processed; compelete || good || Pingchuan reservoir |- | 4 || 1#7 || 1500m || 12:27:14 || 12:33:18 || 92 || processed; compelete || good || desert transit zone |- | 5 || 1#5 || 1500m || 12:38:22 || 12:44:14 || 89 || processed; compelete || good || north-south desert plot |- | 6 || 1#3 || 1500m || 12:50:30 || 12:56:26 || 90 || processed; compelete || good || Pingchuan reservoir |- | 7 || 1#1 || 1500m || 13:01:46 || 13:07:46 || 91 || processed; compelete || good || Linze station |}

WATER: Dataset of automatic meteorological observations at the Huazhaizi desert station (2008-2011)

The dataset of automatic meteorological observations was obtained from Jun. 1, 2008 to Dec. 31, 2009 at the Huazhaizi desert station which is located in Anyangtan (E100°19'06.9″/N38°45'54.7″), south of Zhangye city, Gansu province,. The experimental area, situated in the middle stream of Heihe river, with a flat and open terrain and sparse vegetation cover is an ideal desert observing field. Observation items included the multi-layer (2m and 10m) wind speed and direction, the air temperature, precipitation, the four components of radiation, the surface infrared temperature, the multi-layer soil temperature (5cm, 10cm, 20cm, 40cm, 80cm and 160cm), soil moisture (5cm, 10cm, 20cm, 40cm, 80cm and 160cm) and soil heat flux (5cm & 10cm). The raw data were level0 and the data after basic processes were level1; the data after strict quality control were defined as Level2. The data files were named as follows: station+datalevel+AMS+datadate.. As for detailed information, please refer to “Meteorological and Hydrological Flux Data Guide".
