Evaluation of national scale, long-distance connectivity (and its protection) in England’s priority habitat inventory - 2015 dataset

T.J.P. Travers, J. Alison, S.D. Taylor, H.Q.P. Crick & J.A. Hodgson
The results of an analysis of the connectivity of sixteen priority habitat networks in England using the Condatis methodology. The dataset includes conductance scores for each of the priority habitat networks (an overall assessment of how connected the habitat network is), the flow scores for each contiguous habitat patch within each of the habitat networks (the importance of that patch to connectivity), as well as details of protection. Additionally, the dataset includes data and scripts...

Size fractionated primary production measurements from CTD Niskin samples collected along the Barents Sea cruise transect, JR17007 and JR18006 (ChAOS cruises).

Patrick Downes & Joanna Dixon
Rates of net primary production were measured at six stations in the Barents Sea during the Changing Arctic Ocean cruises JR17007 (10th July - 5th August 2018) and JR18006 (29th June - 2nd August 2019), on board the RSS James Clark Ross. At each station, six light depths were sampled corresponding to photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) percentages (100%, 50%, 25%, 15%, 3%, 1%), calculated from the surface PAR (log). Samples were collected using a rosette...

This dataset is part of v2.0 of the Small Fire Dataset (also known as FireCCISFD11), which covers Sub-Saharan Africa for the year 2019. Data is available here at...

GPS and Time-Depth Recorder tracking of common and Brunnich's guillemots from five colonies around Iceland, June-July 2019-2021

Norman Ratcliffe & Anne-Sophie Bonnet-Lebrun
We tracked 94 common and 50 Brunnich's guillemots from five colonies around Iceland (Latrabjarg, Grimsey, Langanes, Skrudur and Papey) during late incubation and chick rearing from June to July 2019. We also tracked 5 common and 3 Brunnich's guillemots from Langanes during chick-rearing in July 2020 (GPS only). We used Pathtrack nanoFix GPS loggers to record locations every 3min and Cefas G5 TDR loggers to record depth every second. The tags recorded the birds' behaviour...

Caterpillar activity under experimentally manipulated light conditions, Oxfordshire, UK, winter 2019

D.H. Boyes, D.M. Evans, R. Fox, M.S. Parsons & M.J.O. Pocock
Counts of caterpillars arising from a short-term experiment that installed lighting rigs in previously unlit areas to test for a change in nocturnal feeding behaviour. Caterpillars were counted from lit and control transects at two locations in Oxfordshire during January and February 2019. Lighting rigs were installed during the afternoon and switched on one hour before sunset. To give the nocturnal caterpillars time to become active, sampling occurred between 60 and 120 minutes after sunset....

Land Cover Map 2020 (10m Classified Pixels, GB)

R.D. Morton, C.G. Marston, A.W. O’Neil & C.S. Rowland
This is a 10-metre pixel data set representing the land surface, classified into 21 UKCEH land cover classes, based upon Biodiversity Action Plan broad habitats. The pixel product is given as a two-band raster in geoTiff format. The first band gives the most likely land cover type; the second band gives the probability associated with this land cover. The probability layer is an indicator of uncertainty (0 to 100). Low values correspond to low certainty...

The WBID is commonly used across research institutions and is the same ID as used on the UK Lakes Portal, where more information can...

Vertical luminophore particle tracer profiles expressed as relative counts for replicate macrofaunal communities from the Western Barents Sea in summer 2017 and 2018

Martin Solan, Jasmin Godbold, Laura Grange, Ellie Rose Ward, Christina Wood & Adam Reed
Macrofaunal mediated redistribution of optically distinct particulate tracers (luminophores) for intact communities from the western Barents Sea after 12 days incubation. Tracer profiles are quantified from stitched composite images of all four sides of each aquarium taken using a digital SLR camera housed within a UV illuminated imaging box. Counts are expressed as relative counts (proportion of the total). Samples were collected on cruises JR16006 and JR17007. Funding was provided by 'The Changing Arctic Ocean...

Martin Solan, Jasmin Godbold, Laura Grange, Ellie Rose Ward, Christina Wood & Adam Reed
Sediment particle size frequency distributions from the USNL (Unites States Naval Laboratory) box cores were determined optically using a Malvern Mastersizer 2000 He-Ne LASER diffraction sizer and were used to resolve mean particle size, sorting, skewness and kurtosis. Samples were collected on cruises JR16006 and JR17007. Funding was provided by 'The Changing Arctic Ocean Seafloor (ChAOS) - how changing sea ice conditions impact biological communities, biogeochemical processes and ecosystems' project (NE/N015894/1 and NE/P006426/1, 2017-2021), part...

Simulated yields and transmissivities for the weathered basement aquifer of Northern Ghana

Marco Bianchi, Alan MacDonald, David Macdonald & Enoch Asare
This dataset was generated with a novel process-based stochastic modelling approach to investigate the productivity and sustainability of groundwater abstractions in the Precambrian basement aquifer in Northern Ghana. The statistical distribution of the generated synthetic yield data was found in very good agreement with observed yield data from the same Ghanaian aquifer. The dataset includes more than 40,000 simulated values of maximum allowable yield and corresponding transmissivity values for different realisations of aquifer heterogeneity, net...

High resolution aeromagnetic line data in the Ross Sea Rift collected for the ANDRILL pre-site survey (2008-09 season)

Fausto Ferraccioli & Tom Jordan
A high resolution survey was flown opportunistically by BAS at the end of the AGAP aerogeophysical campaign during the 2008-09 Antarctic field season with NSF support from McMurdo. The main purpose was to collect data on the ice shelf for a radar pre-site survey for a major planned international ANDRILL drilling campaign at Coulman High. Due to lack of appropriate funding levels from several countries this ANDRILL drilling project has been postponed (https://www.icdp-online.org/projects/world/antarctica/coulman-high/) but the...

Processed line aerogravity data over the Evans Ice Stream, Southern Palmer Land region (1994/95 season)

P.C. Jones
The survey collected a total of 11,500 km of data along 22 lines, spaced 12 km apart and oriented perpendicular to the strike of both the Bouguer anomaly field, as derived from land data (McGibbon and Smith, 1991), and the major sub-ice topographical features (Doake et al., 1983). The speed of the aircraft was set to produce a sample spacing of about 60 m and the data were collected at heights between 1600 and 2000...

Processed ice shelf base picks from airborne radar depth sounding across the Pine Island Glacier Ice Shelf (2010-2011)

Hugh Corr & David Vaughan
In 2011, aerogeophysics data were acquired over Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica on a grid comprising 30 transverse lines across the glacier, each around 20 km long, and with a spacing of roughly 500 m between the lines. The orientation of the lines was selected to be perpendicular to the surface features visible in satellite images in the central part of the ice shelf. Elevation of the ice‐surface directly beneath the aircraft was simultaneously measured...

Processed line aerogravity data over Northern Palmer Land, Antarctic Peninsula (2002/03 season)

P.C. Jones & Fausto Ferraccioli
Over 20,000 km of new aerogravity data were acquired over Palmer Land during the 2002-2003 Antarctic campaign. Profile lines were oriented E-W with N-S tie lines. Line spacing was 5 km, tie lines were 25 km apart and nominal flight altitude was 2800 m. Differential, carrier phase, kinematic GPS processing methods provided the vertical and horizontal accelerations, which dominate the raw aerogravity signal. Levelled airborne gravity data have mean accuracies of 3 mGal. We present...
