China built up salt lake resources and environmental science database

The Salt Lake Resources and Environmental Science Database, completed by the Qinghai Salt Lake Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has been approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology after 6 years’ hard work. This is the largest data sharing system for salt lake resources and environmental science in China.

Salt Lake resources are one of the characteristic resources of western China, and also the inorganic mineral resources with relatively international advantages in China. The resource components such as potassium, lithium, boron, strontium and strontium are related to the resource security and strategic security of the country, as well as the development of the national economy. They are of great strategic importance.

The Qinghai Salt Lake Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences introduced that the project is supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology Foundation and the 100-member plan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, covering six sub-libraries such as the Salt Lake Basic Information Database, the Salt Lake Resource Database, the Salt Lake Environmental Database, the Salt Lake Resources Development Status Database, the Salt Lake Image Database and the Salt Lake Multimedia Database.

It is understood that the China Salt Lake Resources and Environmental Science Database contains basic information data of nearly 1000 salt lakes in China based on field surveys and multi-source data integration, multi-stage salt lake quantity, area, meteorology, salt lake distribution area landsat satellite image raw data. There are 12 categories of data, such as the status of the surface environment in the salt lake area, the water volume of the salt lake, the type of salt lake, the type of salt lake resources, and the high score image data set. The data volume is about 570 GB.

The Qinghai Salt Lake Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences said that the completion of the data sharing platform provided a basic support for the sharing of scientific data in the Salt Lake. In the future, the data center will continue to build a multi-source and heterogeneous data integration and data application research in the whole field of salt lake science, and from perspectives like resource security and optimal allocation, integrated management decision-making, sustainable development, etc., it provides local governments, salt lake industries and the public with information resources integration and sharing services for salt lakes, and provides scientific evidence for scientific decision-making of rational allocation and efficient use of salt lake resources.
