There are multiple land forms in the Amur river basin, including the Xiang’an Mountains, Mongolia Plateau, the Songnen Plain and Khanka Lake, Lake Baikal etc.. Based on the ASTER-DEM dataset, the Elevation Cluster Dataset Covering the Amur River Basin (AmurBasinSLC) has been developed, it is a 30-m resolution raster rata on land slope classification in the Amur River Basin. 7 classes of land slope clusters are identified. They are: Level 1(0-1 degree),Level 2(1-3 degree),Level 3(3-7 degree),Level 4(7-15 degree),Level 5(15-25 degree),Level 6(25-35 degree),and Level 7 ( more than 35 degree). The result of the statistics shows that the area which slope is less than 15 degree occupies 82.72% of the total area of the region, near one sixth area of the region is located at the places which slope is less than 3 degree, and only 4.21% area is more than 25 degree. The dataset is archived in tiff format. The dataset is 11.80GB total, 810MB in compressed format. In order to make it easy to be downloaded, it was compressed into three data files by the winRAR, they are: AmurBasinSLC.part01.rar(300MB),AmurBasinSLC.part02.rar(300MB),AmurBasinSLC.part03.rar(255MB). They can be downloaded all into same folder, and open the first file (AmurBasinSLC.part01.rar), all of the three files will be automaticity open as one dataset.
