Short summary
The Tibet-Obs soil properties dataset was compiled based on in situ and laboratory measurements of soil profiles across three climate zones on the Tibetan Plateau. The appropriate parameterization schemes of soil hydraulic and thermal properties were discussed for their applicability in land surface modeling. The uncertainties of existing soil datasets were evaluated. This paper contributes to land surface modeling and hydro-climatology communities for their studies of the third pole region.
