What is it about?

This paper presents an analysis based on the use of historical data of frost/snow disasters in North China in combination with ArcGIS and other technical applications. Specifically, the frequency and intensity of frost/snow disasters in North China during the study period, 1644–1911 from the perspective of time and space, were analyzed.

Why is it important?

Our findings would explicitly enrich basic datasets that inform the decisions of global communities, especially in humid/arid regions, coupled with driving country-level or continental studies to ascertain what is known and unknown, but important and needs to be studied. This analysis will not only help us in getting a better understanding of frost disasters in the historical period from both the spatial and temporal perspectives, it can also provide a technical basis for corresponding relief work.


A novel study that informs theory and application.
