Recent research and application of Glacier No.1 at the headwaters of Urumqi River in Tianshan Mountains

Basic information on recent research and application of Glacier No.1 at the headwaters of Urumqi River, Tianshan Mountains

Focusing on Glacier No.1 at the headwaters of Urumqi River in Tianshan, Xinjiang, the book describes in detail various phenomena of accelerated glacier melting under the background of climate warming, expounds the process and mechanism of glacier accelerated melting, puts forward the method of simulating and predicting glacier change, analyzes the characteristics of glacier change in different regions of Xinjiang and the middle section of Qilian Mountain and its impact on water resources, and systematically discusses warm type ice formation The formation process of ice core and the chemical characteristics of snow and ice in different regions of Xinjiang and their environmental significance were recorded.
