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...

Data used for the analysis of dominant controls on evapotranspiration from the BERMS Old Jack Pine site, Saskatchewan

Mahtab Nazarbakhsh, Andrew Ireson & Alan G. Barr
Land surface schemes can be applied to simulate evapotranspiration. This dataset contains the driving meteorological data, and various diagnostic data, from one of the Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites in central Saskatchewan, known as the Old Jack Pine site. In Nazarbakhsh et al. (2019, Hydrological Processes, https://doi.org/10.1002/hyp.13674) we used these data to drive two Canadian land surface schemes (CLASS and CLASS–CTEM). We used half–hourly values of shortwave radiation, longwave radiation, precipitation, air temperature, specific...

Multimodal data with wide-field GCaMP imaging and sub-cortical/cortical single unit recording (2015)

Dongsheng Xiao
This dataset includes raw wide-field GCaMP image sequences and time stamps of spike trains simultaneously recorded with GCaMP imaging and processed GCaMP images and spike trains: df/f0 with 0.1-10 band pass filter and spike train binned in one frame time. Most experiments were performed toward the end of the mouse light cycle. Mice were anesthetized with isoflurane (0.5–1.0%) or urethane during data collection. Images of the cortical surface were recorded through a pair of front-to-front...

Canadian Prairie Watershed Classification

Jared Wolfe, Colin J. Whitfield, Kevin R. Shook & Chris Spence
Shapefile detailing classified prairie watersheds (n = 4175) according to physiographic characteristics. These characteristics were assembled from a variety of sources, including remote sensed data and government databases. Variables included climatic (annual precipitation, potential evapotranspiration), physical (slope, elevation), surficial geology, wetland (density, size distribution), and land cover/use data. Watersheds were classified using a hierarchical clustering on principal components analysis. As a result, seven distinct classes of watersheds were identified. The dataset defines two classifications schemes:...

Evaporation modelling gridded data and meteorological station data for a case study at a rolling prairie landscape at St. Denis National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada

Robert Armstrong, John Pomeroy & Lawrence Martz
This data set contains gridded outputs and surface data collected for a case study conducted on August 5, 2007 at St. Denis National Wildlife Area in central Saskatchewan, Canada. The data is provided in reference to the paper published in Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci., 23, 4891–4907, 2019, ‘Spatial variability of mean daily estimates of actual evaporation from remotely sensed imagery and surface reference data’ at https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-23-4891-2019
