Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor traverses the Karakoram Mountains and some parts of Pamir Mountains where modern glaciers are widely distributed. The upstream glaciers and their evolution have caused various types of glaciers-related disasters (glacier floods/mudslides, glacier surges, paraglacial collapse/landslides, and ice-dammed lakes outburst floods, etc.) These prominent disasters increasingly pose a threat to the China-Pakistan Highway and its infrastructure and human activities. This study focuses on the Kashgar Pakistan Islamabad section along the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. Based on the full excavation of various released datasets, this study collected the relevant disaster survey data, historical typical disaster events, and dynamics of the upstream glaciation area. We compiled spatial information data of glaciers, glacial lakes and potential glacial floods/debris flow catchments along the China-Pakistan Highway. This dataset is composed of 6 sub-datasets: (1) the basic dataset of watershed classification as well as glaciers, glacial lakes, water systems etc. along the China Pakistan Economic Corridor; (2) surging glaciers distribution dataset; (3) distribution dataset of historical outburst events of glacial ice-dammed lakes; (4) dataset of potential glacier flood/debris flow gully distribution along the China-Pakistan Highway; (5) landslide distribution dataset; (6) historical seismicity dataset along the China-Pakistan Highway and its surrounding areas. This dataset provides a basic scientific data support for the construction of the China-Pakistan Corridor, and can be used for the analysis and assessment of glaciers-related hazards along the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
