The dataset provided was compiled as part of the PhD Thesis “Characterizing low flows in Switzerland – From field investigations at catchment scale to Swiss wide data evaluation. – accessible in the ETH Research Collection https://www.research-collection.ethz.ch/handle/20.500.11850/371948).
Data: Forage quality and biomass yield of the Management Experiment set up within the Jena Experiment, , , , , , &
This dataset contains measurements of above ground biomass yield and various forage quality variables of the subplots of the Management Experiment set up within the Main Experiment plots of a large grassland biodiversity experiment (the Jena Experiment; Roscher et al. 2004, Weigelt et al. 2009). In the main experiment, 82 grassland plots of 20 x 20 m were established from a pool of 60 species belonging to four functional groups (grasses, legumes, tall and small...
Many seasonally stratified lakes accumulate substantial amounts of the greenhouse gas methane in the anoxic zone. Methane oxidizing bacteria in the water column act as a converter, oxidizing methane into carbon dioxide and biomass before it reaches the atmosphere. Current observations and estimates of this methane oxidation efficiency are diverging, especially for the lake overturn period. Here we combine a model of turbulent mixing, gas exchange and microbial growth with a comprehensive data set for...
We provide here data on 1) monthly hay, feed wheat and feed barley prices in South Germany (=Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg) from August 2002 to March 2019 and 2) monthly Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) values for South Germany and in whole Germany from January 1991 to April 2019. For more details, see Schaub and Finger (2020) and the README file. To replicate the results of Schaub and Finger (2020) we additionally uploaded the monthly harmonized...
seismic data acquired on the Walkerschmatt (Switzerland) rock slope instability
Dataset on simulated maize and winter wheat yields in Switzerland under current and future climate conditions&
The data collection contains datasets on simulated maize and winter wheat yields under current and future climate conditions based on the crop yield simulation model CropSyst. The data collection belongs to the following article: Finger, R., Schmid, S. (2008). Modeling Agricultural Production Risk and the Adaptation to Climate Change. Agricultural Finance Review 68 (1), 25-41. CropSyst was used simulate experiments considering different levels of nitrogen fertilization, irrigation strategies under various realizations of weather (years). We...
Qua-kit data: Urban Design Submissions: Urban Design submissions produced by students of the Future Cities course series at edX and analysis materials
Quick Urban Analysis Kit (qua-kit) is a web platform for simple urban design editing, sharing and discussion. Qua-kit is integrated into a series of massive open online courses (MOOCs) called Future Cities, which is developed by the chair of Information Architecture (iA) at ETH Zürich. This dataset contains student submissions (design geometry), discussions, and related data in the form of an SQL dump. In addition, the archive contains example data analysis scripts.
Dataset of fitted rates in N2O. Details are given in the publication of the same name and in the text.
Drosophila suzukii in Swiss cherry production – Data from a survey on risk management strategies in 2018, &
The here presented dataset is based on a survey that was conducted with Swiss cherry growers with the specific aim to identify risk management strategies taken in response to Drosophila suzukii as well as to survey perceived infestation levels and harvest losses. The survey was conducted in November 2018, with a total response of 109 participants. Farm and farmers’ characteristics were collected and risk preferences elicited.
