More New Data Expected from Old Meteorological Observation Stations in Tajikistan with CAS support

Jul 11, 2017     Email"> PrintText Size

Two meteorological observation stations of more than 100-year history in Tajikistan are expected to provide more backbone data for climate change studies, scientists from two Chinese Academy of Sciences institutes reported when they wrapped up their one-week 1200-km field trip on 8 July, 2017.

During the field trip, scientists from Institute of Atmospheric Physics and Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography had extensive exchanges with scientists from Tajikistan Academy of Science. Supported by CAS “The Belt and Road Initiatives” Program on Climate Change Research and Observation, the cooperation between scientists of two countries will result in observations of more variables to support climate studies.  

CAS scientists also selected another site for radiosonde detection.

During weak winds condition, the gusty wind is characterized by a coherent structure. The gusty wind disturbances carry most of the eddy kinetic energy and play a major role in downward momentum flux. Turbulent fluctuations (period < 1 min) only contribute a few of these....
