Understanding geographic coupling and achieving geographic integration
Changqing SONG, Changxiu CHENG, Xiaofan YANG, Sijing YE, and Peichao GAO
Coupling, as a classic physical concept, provides a suite of ideas and methods for describing interactions of multi-agents across disciplines. In contrast, the concept of integration is not from a certain discipline, but it is widely used in many natural and socioeconomic sciences fields due to its great generalization

Research progress in crop phenology under global climate change
Yujie LIU, Quansheng GE, and Junhu DAI
As one of the most important plant traits of crops, crop phenology reflects the characteristics of crop growth and development; its variation also affects crop production. Therefore, crop phenology is a reliable and comprehensive biological indicator reflecting global climate change. Global climate change, marked by ri

Response of precipitation change in Central Asia to emission scenarios consistent with the Paris Agreement
Fang WANG, and Jintao ZHANG
To limit global mean warming to below 2.0 ℃ in accordance with the Paris Agreement, countries submitted their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) for emission reductions. Those emissions will be the key determinant to the future climate change impacts. However, it remains unclear what the resulting chan

Analysis of controlling factors for vegetation productivity in Northeast China
Yuke ZHOU
The length and magnitude of vegetation growing season are important factors affecting the change of vegetation productivity during the growth process. Under the context of global warming, vegetation growing season at the middle and high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere has prolonged significantly and caused positiv

Magnetic characteristics of Qiangyong Co Lake sediments, southern Tibetan Plateau and its environmental significance during 1899-2011
Xing GAO, Shichang KANG, Qingsong LIU, Pengfei CHEN, and Zongqi DUAN
Far from major zones of human pollution, the widely developed lakes on the Tibetan Plateau are ideal regions to evaluate global and regional impacts caused by human activities. Based on the reliable dating, they can provide historical records of human pollution. Heavy metal is one of the most harmful pollutants, and is

Effect of soil moisture variation on near-surface air temperature over the Tibetan Plateau
Keke FAN, Qiang ZHANG, Peng SUN, Changqing SONG, Huiqian YU, Xiudi ZHU, and Zexi SHEN
The Tibetan Plateau is one of the most sensitive regions to global climate change. It is of important theoretical significance to explore the effect of soil moisture changes on near-surfaceair temperature for the study of the water cycle of the Tibetan Plateau and its impact on the surrounding climate and environment.

Changes of glacier mass balance in Manas river basin based on multi-source remote sensing data
Guining ZHAO, Zhengyong ZHANG, Lin LIU, Liping XU, Puyu WANG, Li LI, and Shan NING
The glacier mass balance (GMB) is an important link between climate and water resources, which has remarkable regulation functions for river runoff. The research, using MOD11C3, TRMM 3B43 and other multi-source remote sensing data to drive the degree-day model, simulates the GMB processes and analyzes the recharge of g

The impact of the urbanization process on rainfall in Beijing:A case study of 7.21 rainstorm
Jie ZHANG, Peijun SHI, Jing YANG, and Daoyi GONG
This article used the Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF) version 3.8 and simulated rainfall event in the period of July 21 to 22, 2012 in Beijing as a case study, with consideration of different land use and cover data. The rainfall event was simulated using a physical parametrization scheme that included a m

Spatial and temporal evolutions of the major bays in the East China Sea under the influence of reclamation
Jialin LI, and Lijia WANG
The spatial pattern changes of bays under the influence of reclamation can profoundly reflect how human activities affect the natural environments, which is important to effectively protect and utilize bay resources. Based on 6 Landsat TM/OLI remote sensing images during 1990-2015, this study analyzed the variations of

Methods research on describing the spatial pattern of land use types in China
Hongrun JU, Lijun ZUO, Zengxiang ZHANG, Xiaoli ZHAO, Xiao WANG, Qingke WEN, Fang LIU, Jinyong XU, Bin LIU, Ling YI, Shunguang HU, Feifei SUN, and Zhanzhong TANG
Understanding the evolving spatial pattern of land use is the basis of the theory and practice of land use/cover change (LUCC). It is helpful to optimize the use of land resources spatially and to improve the level of land use planning and management when the spatial patterns of land use are described effectively. At p
