Finally, the extensive periglacial region of the Qinghai-Xizang (Tibet) Plateau has so far not been adequately described in the western literature, yet it is the same size as the North American or Eurasian periglacial regions.

China's Tibetan Plateau, also called the Qinghai‐Tibetan Plateau or the Qinghai‐Xizang Plateau, is a unique geographical unit due to its low temperatures, geographical location, high elevation (averaging more than m above sea level (asl)), and large expanse; it stretches between 25°N and 40°N and between 74°E and °E (Figure 1) and covers an Cited by:.

Research into projected climate and environmental changes across the Tibetan Plateau in the 21st century is reviewed. Climate and environmental factors involved include surface air temperature, rainfall, extreme weather and climate events, frozen soil, snow cover, glaciers, runoff, and vegetation.

Projections are mainly from climate model simulations under the .Global warming has accelerated the retreat of glaciers.

Over the past 30 years, the area of glaciers has decreased by sq km annually on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the permafrost has experienced patches of degradation, manifested by reduction of the seasonal frozen depth and rising thaw depth.Atlas of Clouds Over the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau, Science Press & Academic Press, CCICED Task Force Summary Report: Strategy and Policies on Environment and Development.
