An in situ observation dataset of soil hydraulic properties and soil moisture in a high and cold mountainous area on the northeastern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
Abstract. Soil hydraulic properties (SHPs) and soil moisture (SM) are fundamental to describing and predicting water and energy cycles at the land surface, and for regulating evapotranspiration,
Permafrost, active layer and meteorological data (2010–2020) from a relict permafrost site at Mahan Mountain, Northeast of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
Abstract. Relict permafrost presents an ideal opportunity to understand the impacts of climatic warming on the ground thermal regime since it is characterized by mean annual ground temperature close
A first investigation of hydrogeology and hydrogeophysics of the Maqu catchment in the Yellow River source region
Abstract. The Tibetan Plateau is the source of most of Asia's major rivers and has been called the Asian Water Tower. Detailed knowledge of its hydrogeology is paramount to enable the understanding

TLDR
This work proposes an adaptive, few-shot learning approach to endangered-animal detection through data augmentation by applying constraints on the mixture of foreground and background images based on species distributions, and identifies a foreground–background mixture of different images to produce multiple new image examples.
Stringent Nonpharmaceutical Interventions Are Crucial for Curbing COVID-19 Transmission in the Course of Vaccination: A Case Study of South and Southeast Asian Countries
TLDR
Ad adopting stringent nonpharmaceutical interventions is the key to alleviating the spread of COVID-19 before attaining worldwide herd immunity, and the peak date is expected to occur earlier (5–20 d) with minimum infections.
