Abstract: As the basic data for the research of climate change, Meteorological data provide basic data support for global climate change and extreme weather events. Alpine Ecosystem Observation and Experiment Station of Gongga Mountain, Chinese Academic of Sciences, is one of the observation stations of Chinese Ecosystem Research Network (CERN) and National Ecosystem Research Network of China (CNERN). Located in southeast edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Mt. Gongga is one of the most sensitive areas to global warming. It is a typical and representative alpine ecosystem. Pursuant to the protocols for standard meteorological observation and measurement of CERN, the station has been carrying out long-term meteorological monitoring practice. After data processing, quality control and evaluation, we reported in this dataset the 19 meteorological elements, including 120 indices (301 KB) selected from primary data collected from the automatic meteorological system during 1998–2018. This dataset is aimed to provide background data for the study of the response of alpine ecosystems to global change.
