Lake seasonality across the Tibetan Plateau and their varying relationship with regional mass changes and local hydrology

Yanbin Lei, Guoqing Zhang et 9 al.

Jan 17, 2017 in Geophysical Research Letters
The recent growth and deepening of inland lakes in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) may be a salient indicator of the consequences of climate change. The seasonal dynamics of these lakes is poorly understood despite this being potentially crucial for disentangling contributions from glacier melt and precipitation, which are all sensitive to climate, to lake water budget. Using in situ observations, satell...

Mixed Impact of Climate Change on Cold Season Residential Electricity: A Case Study of Lanzhou and Lhasa

Cuihui Xia, Pengling Wang et 3 al.

Jul 22, 2022 in Frontiers in Earth Science
Extreme weather induced by climate change has triggered large scale power outages worldwide, particularly during the cold season. More insight into the climatic impacts (especially those of precipitation) on cold season residential electricity consumption (REC) is needed. This study quantified the climatic impacts on REC, with a focus on precipitation, and projected the associated changes under re...

Energies, Vol. 15, Pages 3355: Effect of Climate on Residential Electricity Consumption: A Data Driven Approach

Cuihui Xia, Wentao Hu et 3 al.

May 5, 2022 in Energies
Quantifying the climatic effect on residential electricity consumption (REC) can provide valuable insights for improving climate-energy damage functions. Our study quantifies the effect of climate on the REC in Tibet using machine learning algorithm models and model agnostic interpretation tools of feature importance scores and partial dependence plots. Result show that the climate contributes a...

Remote Sensing, Vol. 14, Pages 1927: Earth Observation to Investigate Occurrence, Characteristics and Changes of Glaciers, Glacial Lakes and Rock Glaciers in the Poiqu River Basin (Central Himalaya)

Tobias Bolch, Guoqing Zhang et 8 al.

Apr 15, 2022 in Remote Sensing
Meltwater from the cryosphere contributes a significant fraction of the freshwater resources in the countries receiving water from the Third Pole. Within the ESA MOST Dragon 4 project, we addressed in particular changes of glaciers and proglacial lakes and their interaction. In addition, we investigated rock glaciers in permafrost environments. Here, we focus on the detailed investigations which h...

Possible causes of anomalous glacier mass balance in the western Kunlun Mountains

Meilin Zhu et 7 al.

Mar 30, 2022 in Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres
Under current global warming, most glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau (TP) have shown significant mass loss during 2000‐2019. However, the average glacier mass balance in the western Kunlun Mountains (WKM) was positive during this period. The causes of these opposing average status and the temporal glacier mass changes over the last several decades in the WKM continue to be the subject of active deb...

Distinct impacts of vapor transport from the tropical oceans on the regional glacier retreat over the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

Chan Sun, Wenyue Cai et 10 al.

Jan 30, 2022 in The Science of the total environment
An influence of precipitation on the glacier changes over the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) is investigated in this paper. The results show that the glacial loss rates of glaciers in the QTP are significantly correlated with the interannual changes of precipitation and low cloud cover. The water vapor, importing with the warm and wet airflows from the Asian Monsoon regions, significantly influence t...
