Geographical mapping of food outlets and foods and beverages advertised in Kenya

Mark GREEN, Rebecca PRADEILLES, Milka WANJOHI, Elizabeth Kimani-Murage, Stella MUTHURI, Paula GRIFFITHS & Michelle HOLDSWORTH
The aim of this study was to characterise the local foods and beverages sold and advertised in a deprived urban neighbourhood in Nairobi, Kenya. In 2017, a cross-sectional observational study design was used to audit all food outlets (outlet type and food type sold) and food advertisements. Data available on: types of foods and beverages sold and/or advertised in food outlets. A total of 499 food outlets or adverts were identified and assessed in Nairobi.

Data of non-volcanic, polygenic, andic soils in the southern central Ecuadorian highlands as the result of long-lasting pedogenesis and geodynamic processes

P. Podwojewski, J. Poulenard & T. Toulkeridis
In the high altitude (>3000 m asl) grasslands of Ecuador, the Páramo ecosystem, soils generally formed on recent volcanic ashes being 10 000 years old in the northern and central part of the cordilleras. With time these soils evolved in to non-allophanic Andisols with hydric properties such as evidenced in profiles from the CAJAS massif located in the western central Cordillera. However soils at the Fierro Urcu massif and at the Oña plateau at the...

Emily Rousham, Rebecca Pradeilles, Robert Akparibo, Richmond Aryeetey, Kristin Bash, Andrew Booth, Stella Muthuri, Hibbah Osei-Kwasi, Colette Marr, Tom Norris & Michelle Holdsworth
We undertook a systematic review and meta-analyses to synthesise evidence of urban dietary behaviours (macronutrients, types of foods consumed, dietary diversity and dietary practices) in two African countries (Ghana and Kenya) in relation to postulated changes in the context of nutrition transition. The study protocol is registered at PROSPERO CRD42017067718. We include data on dietary behaviours extracted from the 47 included studies that encompass 20,726 individuals and 6,526 households.

Dataset from an in-field experimental rainfall simulation - Influence of macrofauna on runoff and erosion - Vietnam, Hanoi Province, Dong Cao, March 2011

J.-L. Janeau, P. Jouquet, A. Pisano, Tran Si Hai, D. Orange, Luu Thi Nguyet Minh & C. Valentin
We assessed the effect of the micro-relief generated by earthworms and termites on soil hydrodynamic properties, and soil and nutrient losses. Eighteen 1 m×1 m plots were established for rainfall simulation experiments (2 runs of 40 min rain, intensity 90 mm h−1) in a steep slope fallow in Northern Vietnam. The soil surface of the micro-plots differed in the proportions of earthworm casts and termite sheetings. The results confirmed the importance of soil biostructures in...

Dataset from an in-field experimental rainfall simulation – Thailand, Nan Province, 2019

J.-L. Janeau, R. Chanisara, S. Grellier, C. Hammecker, S. Intanon, A. Khwanrawee & W. Pansak
In North Thailand land use/-cover change quickly especially in steep agrosystem land. Under rainfall simulation, we are looking at the effect of the topographic situation along the slope and catena using 24 microplots of 1m2 each located down, middle, up and top of the slope. We quantified seed dispersion, soil detachment, soil losses and runoff processes for two soil treatment: tradition cropping and with biochar amendments.

15 minutes flow in the rivers linked to the Aghien lagoon (2015-)

Bamory Kamagate, Luc Seguis, Jean-Louis Perrin, Maurice Guilliod & Serge Ehouman Koffi
To face the difficulties involved in supplying freshwater to Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), the Aghien Lagoon is a potential resource for production of drinking water. A hydro-meteorological network was installed with the objective of assessing the sustainability of the lagoon in terms of both quantity and quality. The automatic measurement of the water level is converted into a flow rate by means of a flow height rating curve established by gauging.

User centric metadata model

Valentina BERETTA
The user centric metadata model aims to foster multi-disciplinary research, describing dataset of different disciplines in the same manner. It is able to favour the user viewpoint using the observation paradigm, adopted by the Observation data model, for specifying the dataset content. The advantages of the proposed metadata model are that the model specifies the semantics of the involved entities and links the technical description, usually provided by existing metadata models, with the thematic description....
