《科学》新闻焦点栏目报道本研究小组工作

(2011-12-15)

《科学》杂志于2011年12月2日在其在其新闻焦点栏目,报道了我研究小组已发表的关于青藏高原增温研究成果。其报道内容如下“China’s glacier scientists hope to get a better understanding of climate variability at high altitudes. One mystery involves temperature readings. After comparing satellite data for the Tibetan Plateau spanning 6 years against Chinese Meteorological Administration readings for the same period, meteorologist Jun Qin noticed that the rate of warming is amplified at high elevations. For stations located at 1000 to 3000 meters, Qin calculated a rate of warming of about 1°C per decade. For stations at 3000 to 5000 meters, the rate of warming was double that. (Amplified rates of warming have also been observed in the Alps and the Andes.) Above 5000 meters, though, satellite temperature readings suggest that the rate of warming remains constant or even diminishes. Qin now hopes to pinpoint a cause for the discrepancy.” 这则新闻的链接为http://www.sciencemag.org/content/334/6060.toc#NewsFocus。关于被报道工作的详细信息请参考“Qin, J., K. Yang, S. Liang, X.
