Yield parameter relationships of oilseed rape (Brassica napus) under the influence of fertiliser and insect pollination

Michael P D Garratt & Erika Degani
This dataset is made up of data from three studies. The first involves a flight cage trial where oilseed rape plants were grown under four fertiliser treatments and then exposed to insect pollination or not. A number of yield parameters were then collected from each plant. The second study involved a field study across three oilseed rape fields with insect pollinator exclusion cages placed over areas of the crop. Yield parameters were then collected from...

SISAL (Speleothem Isotopes Synthesis and AnaLysis Working Group) database Version 1.0

Kamolphat Atsawawaranunt, Sandy P. Harrison & Laia Comas Bru
Stable isotope records from speleothems provide information on past climate changes, most particularly information that can be used to reconstruct past changes in precipitation and atmospheric circulation. SISAL (Speleothem Isotope Synthesis and Analysis) is an international working group of the Past Global Changes (PAGES) project. The working group aims to provide a comprehensive compilation of speleothem isotope records for climate reconstruction and model evaluation. The first version of the SISAL database contains oxygen and carbon...

Children with anxiety disorders in primary care: the views of general practitioners II (CADPC II)

Doireann O'Brien & Cathy Creswell
This dataset was generated to examine the extent to which GPs experience barriers and facilitators to identifying, managing and accessing specialist services for these disorders, as well as factors associated with GPs’ confidence. It contains a cross-sectional, self-report questionnaire in primary care, addressing identification, management and access to specialist services for children (under 12 years) with anxiety disorders, using a five point Likert scale. Some demographic information was provided by GPs. The participants were 971...

A probabilistic, empirical model of magnetospheric ultra-low frequency wave power

Sarah Bentley
The mean and standard deviation of a series of normal probability distributions, describing magnetospheric ultra-low frequency (ULF, 1-20mHz) plasma waves observed by ground based stations, binned by solar wind properties, station and azimuthal angle (i.e. magnetic local time, or MLT). This model was constructed using fifteen years of solar wind OMNI data and a latitudinal magnetometer chain from the CANOPUS/CARISMA network.

PMIP 2 diagnostic for mid-Holocene precipitation over northern Africa

Sandy Harrison & Iain Colin Prentice
This dataset provides the latitudinal distribution of biomes (reconstructed at individual pollen sites) in northern Africa today and during the mid-Holocene (6000 ±500 yr B.P.) and the maximum and minimum estimates of the increase in precipitation (ΔP) required to support grassland at each latitude. As a model benchmark, the simulated change in ΔP is required to lie above/within the ΔP required to support grassland at all latitudes from 0-23° N.

Modern pollen data for climate reconstructions, version 1 (SMPDS)

Sandy Harrison
The dataset contains percentage counts for the 247 most important European pollen taxa from individual modern samples from Europe and northern Eurasia, and supporting metadata about each sample. The dataset has been specifically designed for use for quantitative climate reconstructions.

The synoptic meteorology driving the UK’s largest pollution episodes

Chris Webber
This dataset contains output from an inert-tracer study using the Met Office HADGEM2-GA4 model. The aim of the study was to analyse why omega block events are associated with such hazardous particulate matter (PM) within the UK. The dataset includes HADGEM3-GA4 Chemistry-Climate simulation output and nudged Blocking Index Metrics (blocking index, direction of blocking index and relative importance of air masses Indices) for the same time period. These are calculated on the theta = 2...

MERRA derived hourly time series of GB-aggregated wind power, solar power and demand

Daniel Drew, Hannah Bloomfield, Phil Coker, Janet Barlow & David Brayshaw
MERRA reanalysis data (1980-2015) have been used to estimate the hourly aggregated wind and solar power generation for Great Britain based on a distribution of wind and solar farms which is considered to be representative of the current situation (June 2017). In addition a corresponding hourly time series of nationally aggregated (for Great Britain) electricity demand has been determined. The data have been produced to understand the long term variability of the renewable generation and...

EEG data during ‘peaceful’ auditory processing at different tempi

Nicoletta Nicolaou & Asad Malik
This dataset accompanies the publication by Nicolaou et al. (2017), "Directed motor-auditory EEG connectivity is modulated by music tempo", Front Hum. Neurosci., doi: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00502. The purpose of the research activity in which the data were collected was to investigate how tempo affects the EEG connectivity between different electrodes. For this purpose the participants listened to 'peaceful' music clips at 4 different tempi (50, 100, 150 and 200 beats per minute). To isolate changes related to...

Questionnaire survey results of respondents in four office buildings for post-occupancy evaluation

Gary Middlehurst
This dataset records the questionnaire survey results of post-occupancy evaluations conducted with occupants of four office buildings in the United Kingdom according to their subjective sensations. For each building, three groups of main influential factors (Indoor Environment Quality, Occupants' Performance and Workplace Quality) were surveyed and a separate data file was created. The data can be used for building post-occupancy evaluation based on an analysis method such as the Analytic Hierarchy Process.

Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) Fingerprint data for apples from the National Fruit Collection as used in Ordidge et al PLOS One 2018

Matthew Ordidge & Edward Venison
Data are simple sequence repeat (SSR) genetic fingerprints of the accessions in the apple collection of the National Fruit Collection, Brogdale, UK. The data are called and rounded allele scores, recorded by marker to the nearest base pair. The data represent a reproduction and update of the original SSR dataset from Fernandez-Fernandez F (2010) as detailed in the publication by Ordidge et al., 2018 (PLOS One). A number of alleles were adjusted based on either...

The impact of precipitating hydrometeors on the atmospheric radiation budget

Peter Hill
This dataset contains atmospheric radiative fluxes and heating rates. These fluxes and heating rates were calculated in order to quantify the effect of precipitating hydrometeors (particularly rain) on the radiation budget of the atmosphere and thereby determine whether climate and weather models should include a treatment of the radiative effect of rain. The dataset includes 4 files. all_hydro.nc and no_rain.nc contain full resolution SW and LW radiative fluxes at the surface and top of atmosphere...
