China Meteorological News reporter Chari reported recently that the China Meteorological Administration's Medog atmospheric moisture cycle comprehensive observation field scientific experimental base was officially listed, filling a gap in Tibet's meteorological field scientific experiments.
In November 2009, the Meteorological Bureau of the Tibet Autonomous Region established the National Meteorological Observatory in Medog County, and was upgraded to the National Climate Observatory in January 2019. At present, in addition to the National Climate Observatory, nine unmanned automatic weather stations have been established in the county, equipped with dual polarization radar, light rain radar, cloud radar, microwave radiation temperature and humidity profiler, weather phenomenon meter, GPS water vapor Comprehensive monitoring instruments such as observers.
In recent years, the National Meteorological Observatory of Medog has cooperated with research institutes such as the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Eco-Environmental Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences to jointly carry out comprehensive observation and Scientific investigations and research work have achieved a lot of scientific research results, and also trained and trained a number of backbone scientific research professionals for the local area.
According to reports, the Medog National Climate Observatory is located in the comprehensive observation area of the atmospheric water cycle and ecological environment on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, which has the uniqueness and superiority of climate and ecological change research. The base will rely on the Motuo National Climate Observatory to carry out continuous comprehensive observations and scientific experiments on the multi-layers and interactions of the climate system, ecology, glaciers, etc., based on regional characteristics and business scientific research needs. In-depth research on major frontier scientific issues such as the study of plateau climate change, the study of the three-dimensional ecological environment of the Southeastern Tibetan Plateau, and the study of the ozone depression in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau provides important basic data support to ensure the implementation of major national strategies.
