Hydrothermal friction data of samples obtained from outcrops of the Mai'iu Fault, Papua New Guinae

Andre Rik Niemeijer
General friction and rate and state friction data of powdered fault gouge samples derived from outcrops of the Mai'iu Fault, Papua New Guinae, which is one of the world's most rapidly slipping low-angle normal faults, The experiments show that gouges from the shallowest portion of the fault zone are predominantly weak and velocity-strengthening, while fault rocks deformed at greater depths are stronger and velocity-weakening. Evaluating the geodetic and friction results together with geophysical and microstructural...

Friction and compaction data of simulated fault gouges derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock of the Groningen gas field

Luuk Bernd Hunfeld
We investigated the rate-and-state frictional properties of simulated anhydrite-carbonate fault gouge derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock overlying the seismogenic Groningen gas reservoir in the NE Netherlands. Direct shear experiments were performed at in-situ conditions of 50-150 °C and 40 MPa effective normal stress, using sliding velocities of 0.1-10 µm/s. Reservoir pore fluid compositions were simulated using 4.4 Molar NaCl brine, as well as methane, air and brine/gas mixtures. Brine-saturated samples showed friction coefficients (µ)...

Microscopic and spectroscopic data of pseudotachylytes and wall rocks from the Moncuni ophiolite

Oliver Plümper
We investigated the microstructures and geochemistry of pseudotachylytes found within the ophiolitic peridotites and gabbros from the Moncuni area (Lanzo Ultramafic Massif, Western Alps). The pseudotachylytes preserve dry glass and pristine microlites. The presence of garnet and the static development of eclogite-facies assemblages in local hydrated domains indicate that pseudotachylytes experienced subduction conditions of 600 °C and 2.1 GPa. Samples were investigated using optical and scanning electron microscopic imaging as well as electron backscatter diffraction,...

Data accompanying \"Dynamics of Africa 75 Ma: from plate kinematic reconstructions to intraplate paleo-stresses\"

Marius Christiaan Wouters
Plate reconstruction studies show that the Neotethys Ocean was closing due to convergence of Africa and Eurasia towards the end of the Cretaceous. The period around 75 Ma reflects the onset of continental collision between the two plates, although convergence was still mainly accommodated by subduction, with the Neotethys slab subducting beneath Eurasia. Africa was separated from the rapidly north moving Indian plate by the Owen oceanic transform in the northeast. The rest of the...

Core photographs of the Rotliegend reservoir of the Groningen gas field and surrounding areas

Clemens A. Visser & Karel Bokhorst
The Groningen gas field is the largest gas field in Europe and has been showing seismicity since the 1990s. The ~200 meter thick gas reservoir is situated at ~3 km depth, and comprises sandstone from the Slochteren Formation which is part of the Permian age Upper Rotliegend Group. The reservoir has been cored extensively by the field operator, the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM). This dataset constitutes photographs of core slabs (core-parallel slices) taken from the...

Rotary Shear Experiments on Glass Bead Aggregates

Evangelos Korkolis
Constant sliding velocity (i.e. rate of rotation) friction experiments on mm-thick layers of glass beads, under room temperature and humidity conditions. Stick-slip in sheared granular aggregates is considered to be an analog for the intermittent deformation of the earth’s lithosphere via earthquakes. Stick-slip can be regular, i.e. periodic and of consistent amplitude, or irregular, i.e. aperiodic and of varying amplitude. In the context of seismology, the former behavior resembles the Characteristic Earthquake Model, whereas the...

Microstructural data and microscopic stress measurements of natural mineral-hydration reactions

Oliver Plümper
We investigated the microstructures of periclase-to-brucite hydration domains within marble from the Adamello contact aureole (Italy). The microstructure preserve high differential stresses within the calcite surrounding the hydration domains of up to 1.5 GPa. Samples were investigated using optical, scanning and transmission electron microscopy as well as high-angular resolution electron backscatter diffraction (HREBSD). Stress measurements obtained via HREBSD are compared to analytical solutions. The data is organised in 10 folders termed (Supplementary) Figure X, where...

Surface DEM’s data and cross-sections from analogue experiments of subduction initiation performed in the Tectonic Laboratory (TecLab) at Utrecht University

Antoine Auzemery & Ernst Willingshofer
In order to show the spatial and temporal evolution of deformation and associated surface topography, we present our results in terms of surface scans and final cross sections. The latter are pictures recorded at the end of the experiment. They are obtained at two-third of their width. Experiments are monitored using digital photography and laser scans of the top surface. Digital elevation models, DEM's, are used to retrieve the surface data (grid xyz) and evaluate...

Micro-XCT images, grain size distributions and mechanical data used in: \"Uniaxial compaction of sand using 4D X-ray tomography: The effect of mineralogy on grain-scale compaction mechanisms.\"

Jeroen. F. Van Stappen & Suzanne J.T. Hangx
The mechanical behaviour of sand aggregates is often studied as a proxy for poorly consolidated sands and highly porous sandstones. Only recently research aimed at understanding sand deformation has started to use techniques that allow for direct observation of the in-situ grain-scale processes. Using state-of-the-art, time-lapse micro X-ray computed tomography (micro-XCT) imaging, the influence of mineralogy on the compaction of sand aggregates has been investigated by performing uniaxial compaction experiments on four different mineral assemblies...

Intergranular clay films control inelastic deformation in the Groningen gas reservoir: Evidence from split-cylinder deformation tests

Ronald Pijnenburg, Berend Antonie Verberne, Suzanne Hangx & Christopher James Spiers
Production of oil and gas from sandstone reservoirs leads to small elastic and inelastic strains in the reservoir, which may induce surface subsidence and seismicity. While the elastic component is easily described, the inelastic component, and any rate-sensitivity thereof remain poorly understood in the relevant small strain range (≤ 1.0%). To address this, we performed a sequence of five stress/strain-cycling plus strain-marker-imaging experiments on a single split-cylinder sample (porosity 20.4%) of Slochteren sandstone from the...

Dataset - Reciprocal relations between symptoms of complicated grief, depression, and anxiety following job loss: A cross-lagged analysis

J.H.W. Van Eersel
Abstract Objective: Involuntary job loss can lead to symptoms of complicated grief (CG), depression, and anxiety. Information about the temporal linkage between these symptoms is limited and may have implications for the treatment of those suffering from mental health complaints after dismissal. The aim of this study was to explore the possible reciprocal relationships between symptoms of CG, depression, and anxiety following involuntary job loss. Method: We recruited 128 Dutch workers who had lost their...

Effect of donor-recipient relatedness on the plasmid conjugation frequency: a meta-analysis

Egil A.J. Fischer
Background: Conjugation plays a major role in the transmission of plasmids encoding antibiotic resistance genes in both clinical and general settings. The conjugation efficiency is influenced by many biotic and abiotic factors, one of which is the taxonomic relatedness between donor and recipient bacteria. A comprehensive overview of the influence of donor-recipient relatedness on conjugation is, however, still lacking, but such an overview is important to quantitatively assess the risk of plasmid transfer and the...

Data supplement to \"The photochemical evolution of meteoritic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nontronite clay on early Earth and Mars\"

Nina Kopacz, Inge Loes ten Kate, Maria Angela Corazzi, Giovanni Poggiali & John Brucato
The photochemical evolution of PAHs delivered to a planetary surface environment by meteoritic sources is of great interest to early Earth origin-of-life studies, Mars origin-of-life speculations, as well as current organic molecule detection efforts on Mars. Of prebiotic interest to both Earth and Mars are clay-rich environments, and the evolution of organic carbon molecules within them. In this work we experimentally tested the effect of UV irradiation on different PAHs adsorbed to nontronite clay using...
