Questions related to Tibet
I am working in Ecological Niche modelling and I am projecting my data to the future, i.e. 2050 and 2070. I want to know, out of 9 GCMs which is the CMIP6 which will be the best model to be used for the Himalayan mountains of Northeast and West India along with Tibet.
I am doing Love wave tomography for the region of India and Tibet. Curious to know is there any method or way to solve the smearing in the tomographic checkerboard test.
For recently year, a new ore district is discovered in Tibet of China. In this ore field, one deposit is hosted in chlorite-carbonate ± epidote±sericite dominated alteration zone, which is ＜200 meters away to a large porphyry Cu deposit. I am studying on the two deposit, and I would like some other examples like this?
There is enough evidence of mantle earthquakes in Tibet and the Hindu-Kush region that suggest deep subduction of the Indian lithosphere to the asthenospheric level.
The question is in reference to the India-Asia collision zone where the evidence of asthenosphere upwelling has been reported in the south Tibet. In the SE Karakoram and southern Tibet the He-isotopic evidence in geothermal springs suggest the source is of mantle origin (Hoke et al., 2000; Klemperer et al., 2013). Low velocity zone in the middle and lower crust in the Tibet and in the northern parts of the Karakoram Fault suggest the presence of partial melt.
My question is that can there be another cause of occurrence of partial melt at such depths apart from asthenospheric upwelling triggered by slab rollback and break-off?
I was looking for some introductory works on ethnic differences during late Qing times. Especifically, I would like to find data about regional differences in language and religion in comparison to Han Chinese, especially for Mongolia, Xinjiang, Manchuria, and Tibet.
Thank you very much for your help.
I focus on the relationship between lake variation and paleoclimate change in the southern Tibet Plateau. And I want to collect some high-resolution records, like stalagmite records and tree-ring records, to compare with my data. I have emailed several professors but received no response.
So, I am wondering if there are some open datasets to download or some professors who are willing to share. I promise that they will be used only for my research purposed.
Thanks a lot,
Jiuzhaogou site was among the first group of natural bueaties in China that were designated as the World Heritage by UNESCO. Its natural wonders are really spectacular! It is a must-visit place of a life time for any human being! However，what is the mechanism of interplay and harmonization amongst the water,soil,vegetation and rocks? These questions become pressing especially becasue of the 7.0 degree earthquake that hit the site right in the middle and damaged some of its best lakes.References and discussions are welcome and your efforts will probably help to save the world heritage!
Please share the websites from where I can download the GCMs data for Qingha Tibet Plateau China. I am using SDSM for temperatures and Precipitations downscaling.
What are the Global or Regional teleconnections which are probably affecting the climate in Kashmir Himalayas.
Chenopodium album is one of the more common Chenopods in Eurasia. It's considered as a weed in Europe but there are some studies that confirm its domestication in the Himalayas. This species, very diverse and unknown (2x, 4x and 6x), was cultivated in China, India, Nepal and Bhutan. But today it's very difficult to know the real superficie covered by C album as a crop. Where are the farmers, in which agroecological conditions, for what kind of uses (grains, leaves, etc.)?
One reason for the lack of documented information on chenopods is that many past reports misidentified Chenopodium album as a variety of Amaranth (Amaranthus anardana).
The latest satellite images have been utilized to update the inventories of glaciers and glacial lakes in the Pumqu river basin, Xizang (Tibet), in the study [Che et al. 2014]. Compared to the inventories of the 1970s, the areas of glaciers are reduced by 19.05% while the areas of glacial lakes are increased by 26.76%. The magnitudes of glacier retreat rates and glacial lake increase rates during the period of 2001–2013 are more significant than those of the period of the 1970s–2001. The accelerated changes in areas of the glaciers and glacial lakes, as well as the increasing temperature and rising variability of precipitation, have resulted in an increased risk of glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) in the Pumqu river basin.
Integrated criteria were established to identify potentially dangerous glacial lakes based on a bibliometric analysis method. It was found that in total, 19 glacial lakes were identified as dangerous. Such findings suggest that there is an immediate need to conduct field surveys, not only to validate the findings, but also to acquire information for further use in order to assure the welfare of humans.
Also, it is concluded that global warming is the main reason for glacier recession and glacial lake expansion in the region of Pumqu river basin.
