"Heihe River Basin Ecological hydrological comprehensive atlas" is supported by the key project of Heihe River Basin Ecological hydrological process integration research. It aims at data arrangement and service of Heihe River Basin Ecological hydrological process integration research. The atlas will provide researchers with a comprehensive and detailed background introduction and basic data set of Heihe River Basin.

The snow day map of Heihe River Basin is one of the hydrological and water resources in the atlas, with the scale of 1:2500000, the positive axis and equal volume conic projection, and the standard latitude of 25 47 n.

Data source: this map shows the distribution of annual average snow days in 10 hydrological years in the whole Heihe River Basin from August 1, 2001 to July 31, 2011.
