Using the dynamic vegetation model, combined with the data of soil water, heat and carbon flux at long-term observation points, a research team led by Prof. WU Tonghua from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) systematically studied the global change of carbon cycle response of permafrost ecosystem.
Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics and their collaborators found that human activities reduced the likelihood of extreme early-spring cold events over southeast Tibetan Plateau.
Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics compared CTH data between the FY-4A and Himawari-8 satellites as well as data from ground-based millimeter-wave radar sites in Yangbajing, Tibet (YBJ) and in Beijing.
Recently, scientists from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) selected five degradation stages including intact, slight degradation, moderate degradation, severe degradation, and very severe degradation to explore the degradation effects on carbon and nitrogen cycles on Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.
Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics and their collaborators are more confident in projecting ENSO changes under global warming, although ENSO-related climate variability seems doomed to increase.
A study by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics found that the crisis of water resources shortage in northern Central Asia is also resulted from the drying trend since the 1950s.
