Precise protein sequencing and folding are believed to generate the natural channel structure and chemical diversity of proteins, both of which are essential to synthetically achieve proton transport performance comparable to that seen in natural systems. Geometrically defined channels have been fabricated using peptides, DNAs, carbon nanotubes, sequence-defined polymers and organic frameworks; however, none of these channels rivals the performance observed in their natural counterparts. Here we show that without forming an atomically structured channel,...

Thermal pressure in the laser heated diamond anvil cell: a quantitative study and implications for the density vs. mineralogy correlation of the mantle

Ethan Yen, Quentin Williams & Martin Kunz
Thermal pressure is an inevitable thermodynamic consequence of heating a volumetrically constrained sample in the diamond anvil cell. Its possible influences on experimentally determined density-mineralogy correlations are widely appreciated, yet the effect itself has never been experimentally measured. We present here the first quantitative measurements of the spatial distribution of thermal pressure in a laser heated diamond anvil cell (LHDAC) in both olivine and AgI. The observed thermal pressure is strongly localized and closely follows...

Assessing impacts of social-ecological diversity on resilience in a wetland coupled human and natural system: Data release

Nathan Van Schmidt, José Oviedo, Tracy Hruska, Lynn Huntsinger, Tony Kovach, A. Marm Kilpatrick, Norman Miller & Steven Beissinger
Theory posits that resilience of ecosystems increases when there is a diversity of agents (e.g., species) and linkages between them. If ecosystems are conceptualized as components of “coupled human and natural systems”, then a corollary would be that novel types of human-induced diversity may also foster resilience. We explored this hypothesis by studying how socially created diversity mediated the impact of a historically severe drought on a network of wetlands in the foothills of the...
