Aggregate hydraulic conductivity data from site investigations in south-central Saskatchewan, Canada

David M. Ferris, Grant A.G. Ferguson & Gregory Potter
Pleistocene-aged glacial till aquitards are important shallow hydrogeological units across much of the Northern Hemisphere. Characterizing the hydrogeological properties of these aquitards at a regional scale is important for land use planning and resource management. Here, 606 hydraulic conductivity data points from 20 sites collected from 26 reports are compiled. The referencing information, spatial location, hydraulic conductivity test type, and any other information associated with the hydraulic conductivity data is included where possible. After filtering...

Baker Creek Research Catchment Hydrometeorological and Hydrological Data

Chris Spence & Newell Hedstrom
It is uncommon to collect long term coordinated hydrometeorological and hydrological data in northern circumpolar regions. However, such datasets can be very valuable for engineering design, improving environmental prediction tools or detecting change. This dataset documents hydrometeorological and hydrological conditions in the Baker Creek Research Catchment from 2003 to 2016. Baker Creek drains water from 155 km2 of subarctic Canadian Shield terrain in Canada’s Northwest Territories. Seasonal half hourly hydrometeorological, ground temperature and soil moisture...

The area is a typical agricultural region with both annually cropped fields and pasture sections. Dataset presented here is from the soil moisture and precipitation sites which are spread at two spatial scales (10 km x 10 km and 40 km x 40 km) over the monitoring region. Data from the summer...

Social behaviours in the 5xFAD mouse

Filip Kosel, Paula Torres Munoz, J. Renee Yang, Aimee A. Wong & Tamara B. Franklin
5xFAD transgenic and wild-type mice tested in the olfactory habituation/dishabituation test, urine marking test, three-chamber sociability and social novelty test, and free social interaction test. Mice are tested at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months.

An ensemble of 500 time series of weekly flows from 1600-2001 for the four sub-basins of the Saskatchewan River Basin generated through disaggregating tree-ring reconstructed flow.

Andrew Slaughter & Saman Razavi
Biennial flow reconstructions generated through multiple linear regression relationships between flow and tree-ring chronologies extending from 1600–2001 were disaggregated to weekly by identifying two-year periods in the naturalised reference flow broadly similar to that of the reconstructed flow. The weekly flow distribution of the identified naturalised reference flow period was used to construct the weekly flow. Scaling methods were used to re-introduce some of the variability in yearly flows lost during the disaggregation process. The...

Organic barn dust inhibits surfactant protein D production and GPR116

David Schneberger
Data sets for paper "Organic barn dust inhibits surfactant protein D production through protein kinase-c alpha dependent increase of GPR116" submitted to PLOS One. Data included covers response of mice to organic dust in relation to surfactant D production. A549 human cell line responses to organic dust with or without inhibition of protein kinase C-alpha are also shown in relation to surfactant D and GPR116 mRNA expression.

Raw data and video outputs from a CE-QUAL-W2 hydrodynamic and nutrient model for different Lake Diefenbaker Reservoir withdrawal depth scenarios

Amir Sadeghian, Meghan Carr & Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt
The Lake Diefenbaker CE-QUAL-W2 model has 87 horizontal segments starting at Saskatchewan highway 4 at the upstream extending to the Gardiner Dam and the Qu’Appelle Dam at downstream, and one-meter vertical layers with a maximum of 60 layers at the deepest point near the Gardiner Dam. Gardiner dam outflow is either via metalimnetic withdrawal through hydroelectric turbines or via a spillway during brief high flow periods. The current operational withdrawal depth of approximately 34m was...

Fingerprinting of Quartzitic Outcrops at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania

María Soto, Julien Favreau, Kathryn Campeau, Tristan Carter, Matthew Abtosway, Pastory Bushozi, Siobhan Clarke, Paul Durkin, Stephen Hubbard, Jamie Inwood, Makarius Itambu, Fergus Larter, Patrick Lee, Aloyce Mwambwiga, Rajeev Nair, Robert Patalano, Laura Tucker & Julio Mercader
The African Early Stone Age record, including that of Olduvai Gorge, reveals widespread evidence for hominin exploitation of quartzose lithic raw materials such as quartzite. However, few studies have sought to characterize these rock types grounded on the assumption that they are not amenable for provenance studies. Through the use of macroscopic, petrographic, and EDXRF analysis, we characterize source material from five quartzitic outcrops belonging to the Mozambique Belt adjacent to Olduvai Gorge. Our results...

Hydrological and meteorological dataset from the Lake O’Hara alpine hydrological observatory, 2004-2017

Jesse He & Masaki Hayashi
The Lake O’Hara watershed in the Canadian Rockies has been the site of several hydrological investigations. It has been instrumented to a degree uncommon for many alpine study watersheds. The following data are available in this dataset: Air temperature, relative humidity, wind, precipitation, radiation, and snow depth are measured at two meteorological stations near Lake O’Hara and in the higher elevation Opabin Plateau. Water levels at Lake O’Hara, Opabin Lake, and several stream gauging stations...

Initial Assessment of Bioavailable Strontium at Oldupai Gorge, Tanzania: Potential for Early Mobility Studies

Laura Tucker, Julien Favreau, Makarius Itambu, Fergus Larter, Neduvoto Mollel, Aloyce Mwambwiga, Robert Patalano, Patrick Roberts, Maria Soto & Julio Mercader
Strontium isotope analysis is a useful tool for tracing mobility and migration in past populations. For it to be employed, the 87Sr/86Sr values of the landscape must be well-understood. Bioavailable strontium is a combination of geological and atmospheric strontium available for use by plants and animals. In this study we begin mapping bioavailable strontium values around the Oldupai Gorge region so that this method may be utilized on archaeological hominins and animals in the future....

Aggregated gridded bedrock depth dataset for Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basin based on bedrock data by Shangguan et al. (2017)

Kuljeet Keshav, Amin Haghnegahdar, Mohamed Elshamy, Shervan Gharari & Saman Razavi
The bedrock dataset created by Shangguan et al. (2017) is aggregated to a lower resolution (larger pixels) of 0.125 degree for Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basins for its applicability with Hydrology and Land Surface Models. This dataset is in particular generated for using with MESH (Modélisation Environnementale communautaire - Surface Hydrology), a distributed coupled hydrology-land surface model developed by Environment and Climate Change Canada, as applied to Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basins. The statistics calculated...

Hydrometeorological data from Marmot Creek Research Basin, Canadian Rockies

Xing Fang, John Pomeroy, Chris DeBeer, Phillip Harder & Evan Siemens
Meteorological, snow survey, streamflow, and groundwater data are presented from Marmot Creek Research Basin, Alberta, Canada. The basin is a 9.4 km2, alpine-montane forest headwater catchment of the Saskatchewan River Basin that provides vital water supplies to the Prairie Provinces of Canada. It was heavily instrumented, experimented upon and operated by several federal government agencies between 1962 and 1986, during which time its main and sub-basin streams were gauged, automated meteorological stations at multiple elevations...
