《大气科学进展》“第三极大气物理、化学与水文”专刊征稿通知

  被称为世界第三极的青藏高原,是世界上海拔最高的高原。广袤的青藏高原在海拔2000米以上的面积达360万平方公里,蕴藏着地球上南北极之外最多的冰川和积雪。青藏高原上的冬季降雪和春季融水为亚洲几亿人口提供赖以生存的淡水。另外,青藏高原拥有独特的边界层,影响着天气、气候和大气成分的传输和扩散,人们也早已认识到青藏高原在调节亚洲水循环和季风气候中的重要作用。然而,观测资料和气候模式预估都在警示我们青藏高原变暖的速率高于全球变暖的速率。受变暖、大气环流变化以及包括温室气体、大气气溶胶、光学吸收性颗粒物(例如黑碳、沙尘等)增加等因素的影响,高原上的冰川在过去几十年里迅速消退。

  《大气科学进展》召集国内外相关专家组织“第三极大气物理、化学与水文”专刊,旨在基于实时和遥感资料的分析以及不同时空尺度的全球和区域模式结果,对青藏高原上的大气物理、化学、动力过程取得更好的理解,提高我们对青藏高原如何影响环境、气候、冰冻圈、水循环的模拟和预测能力。

  Scope:

  The Tibetan Plateau (TP), widely known as the Earth’s Third Pole, is the highest and largest plateau in the world. It covers an area of 3.6 million km2 at 2000 m above sea level. Glaciers on the TP hold the largest ice mass outside the polar regions and the snowpack can persist year-round at high-altitude regions over the TP. The TP has long been identified to be critical in regulating the Asian hydrological cycle and monsoon climate. Winter snowfall and spring snowmelt provide more than 50% of the annual freshwater needs for hundreds of millions of people in Asia, potentially influencing public water supply, agriculture, hydropower generation, interstate conflicts and the economies of many South Asian countries. Both the observed and projected warming over the TP is much larger than the global average. Consequently, glaciers on the TP have been retreating extensively in recent decades, driven by the warming and circulation changes associated with increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases and aerosols in the atmosphere, as well as light-absorbing particles (e.g., black carbon, dust) on snow, and other factors. In addition, due to the thermal and dynamic effects of TP, as well as its proximity to the stratosphere, unique boundary layers often develop over TP and in the surrounding areas, which have important impacts on weather, climate, and dispersion and transport of atmospheric constituents.

  This special issue will focus on the observational data analysis based on in-situ and remote sensing measurements as well as global and regional modeling at different temporal and spatial scales, with a goal to better understand the atmospheric physical, chemical and dynamical processes over the TP and improve the modeling and prediction capability of the impact of those processes on the environment, climate, cryosphere, and hydrological cycle over TP.

  Submissions in, but not limited to, the following research areas, are invited:

  •   Observational evidence and possible causes of climate variability and change in the TP region.
  •   In-situ measurements and remote sensing of light-absorbing particles and other chemical tracers in the atmosphere and/or snowpack/ice cores over the TP.
  •   Regional and global modeling of atmospheric physical and chemical processes and climate change over the TP, as well as attribution analysis.
  •   Impact of climate change and land–atmosphere interactions over the TP on lakes, ecosystems, the cryosphere, and hydrological cycle.
  •   Observational and modeling studies of thermal and dynamic effects of TP, and their effects on atmospheric boundary layer development and further impacts on weather, climate, and dispersion and transport of atmospheric constituents.

  Important dates:

  Manuscript submission deadline: Feb 28, 2021.
