Raw data and videos of historical and projected hydrodynamics and water quality in Lake Diefenbaker reservoir under climate change scenarios using the 2D CE-QUAL-W2 model

Amir Sadeghian, Luis Morales-Marin & Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt
Lake Diefenbaker (LD) is a large, multi-purpose, mesotrophic reservoir in the Canadian Prairies. The 2D hydrodynamics and water quality model, CE-QUAL-W2, is implemented to explore how historical (2001-2010) and predicted future (2041-2050 and 2081-2090) hydrological and meteorological conditions may impact the in-reservoir nutrient and water chemistry characteristics of lake Diefenbaker. The LD model is discretized in 87 horizontal segments starting at Saskatchewan highway 4 at the upstream extending to the Gardiner Dam and the Qu’Appelle...

Soil Moisture Data from the Brightwater Creek Pasture Site (2012-2014)

Amber Peterson, Warren Helgason & Andrew Ireson
This dataset includes root-zone and surface soil moisture measurements from a heterogeneous grazed pasture site (containing both Solonetzic (sodic) and Chernozemic (non-sodic) soil) located within the Brightwater Creek watershed (central Saskatchewan). Surveys of surface soil moisture (0–6cm) were conducted on four different measurement days ranging from extreme wet to extreme dry conditions. On each survey, moisture was measured over a 500m by 500m area at a grid spacing of 20m resulting in 625 points. Root-zone...

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, María 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....

Data file for: A neonicotinoid insecticide reduces fueling and delays migration in songbirds

Margaret L. Eng, Bridget J.M. Stutchbury & Christy A. Morrissey
Abstract: Neonicotinoids are neurotoxic insecticides widely used as seed treatments, but little is known of their effects on migrating birds that forage in agricultural areas. We tracked the migratory movements of imidacloprid-exposed songbirds at a landscape scale using a combination of experimental dosing and automated radio telemetry. Ingestion of field-realistic quantities of imidacloprid (1.2 or 3.9 milligrams per kilogram body mass) by white-crowned sparrows (Zonotrichia leucophrys) during migratory stopover caused a rapid reduction in food...
