Scientists Investigate Carbonaceous Matter in Glaciers at Headwaters of Yangtze River[Aug 23, 2019]

A research group led by Prof. KANG Shichang from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources investigated the concentration, sources and fractionation of carbonaceous matter at Ganglongjiama glacier during the melting period in 2017.

Water Availability Determines Carbon Uptake under Climate Warming: Study[Aug 22, 2019]

A research group led by Dr. NIU Shuli from the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research found that water availability in soil determines the direction of carbon-climate feedback. The research team drew the conclusion primarily based on a field manipulation experiment in an alpine meadow on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.

Applying Machine Learning in Intelligent Weather Consultation[Aug 21, 2019]

Researchers from the Peking University and the Institute of Atmsopheric Physics proposed the "model output machine learning" (MOML) method for simulating weather consultation. MOML is a post-processing method based on machine learning, which matches NWP forecasts against observations through a regression function.

Using Black Carbon as Tracer to Track Pollution from Cooking[Aug 20, 2019]

Prof. SUN Yele and his team at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics found that black carbon was a good tracer to separate HOA and COA. By applying the BC tracer method to several datasets in megacities of Beijing and Nanjing, they found that COA contributed 15-27% to total organic aerosol in summer and even more than 10% during heating period with a significant enhancement of coal combustion emissions.

Split Mineral Fertilizer Application Decreases Straw Mineralization and Priming Effect in Paddy Soil[Aug 19, 2019]

Researchers from the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture quantified the decomposition of 13C-labeled straw and the priming effect governed by the N and P fertilizer application pattern during a 100-day experiment in a flooded soil and discovered that the split N and P addition decreased straw mineralization and priming effect of a paddy soil.

Scientists Evaluate Accuracy of Two Daily-Precipitation Products over Qinghai-Tibet Plateau[Aug 16, 2019]

A research group from Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources evaluated the accuracy of two long-term satellite-based quantitative rainfall estimate products in daily scale by comparing them with 104 rain gauges over the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
