Recent years have witnessed the practical value of open-access Earth observation data catalogues and software in land and forest mapping. Combined with cloud-based computing resources, and data collection though the crowd, these solutions have substantially improved possibilities for monitoring changes in land resources, especially in areas with difficult accessibility and data scarcity. In this study, we developed and tested a participatory mapping methodology utilizing the open data catalogues and cloud computing capacity to map the...

Geochemistry and δ¹⁸O G.ruber records of sediment cores MP50PC, MP39PC and MP37PC, supplement to: Filippidi, Amalia; de Lange, Gert J (2019): Eastern Mediterranean Deep Water Formation During Sapropel S1: A Reconstruction Using Geochemical Records Along a Bathymetric Transect in the Adriatic Outflow Region. Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology, 34(3), 409-429

Amalia Filippidi & Gert J de Lange
Eastern Mediterranean thermohaline circulation is directly influenced by mid- and low-latitude climate systems. The dramatic paleoclimate changes during the last African Humid Period (~10-6ka BP) were captured in Mediterranean sediments as the distinctly organic-rich unit sapropel S1. Here, deep-water formation variability during S1 deposition, is reconstructed. We use geochemical records of three cores along a bathymetric transect (775-1359-1908m water depth), at the transition between the Adriatic deep-water formation area and the Eastern Mediterranean. In all...

The Baltic Sea is characterized by the largest area of hypoxic (oxygen <2 mg/L) bottom waters in the world's ocean induced by human activities. Natural ventilation of these oxygen depleted waters largely depends on episodic Major Baltic Inflows from the adjacent North Sea. In 2014 and 2015, two such inflows led to a strong rise in oxygen and decline in phosphate in waters below 125 m depth in the Eastern Gotland Basin. This provided the...

Atmospheric measurements from the Geodetic Observatory Wettzell during the CONT-17 VLBI campaign (Nov 2017 - Dec 2017), supplement to: Klügel, Thomas; Böer, Armin; Schüler, Torben; Schwarz, Walter (2019): Atmospheric data set from the Geodetic Observatory Wettzell during the CONT-17 VLBI campaign.

XRF measurements on split-core surfaces and on individual core samples of IODP Expedition 313 holes

Jenny Inwood, A McGrath, S Morgan, Michael J Norry, S Davies & H Foster
Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 313 recovered siliciclastic sediments from three holes cored through a series of Miocene clinoforms offshore New Jersey. The clinoform sequence that lies between seismic reflectors m5.2 and m4.1 has been dated as mid-Miocene within an interval of major climatic change and displays interesting sedimentological and petrophysical features. However, the depth ties between surfaces in the recovered succession and seismic reflectors, correlation across sites, and depositional environments are not all well...

Microbial release of marine Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Matter in microcosm experiments in the presence of polystyrene microplastics, supplement to: Galgani, Luisa; Engel, Anja; Rossi, Claudio; Donati, Alessandro; Loiselle, Steven Arthur (2018): Polystyrene microplastics increase microbial release of marine Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Matter in microcosm experiments. Scientific Reports, 8(1)

Luisa Galgani, Anja Engel, Claudio Rossi, Alessandro Donati & Steven Arthur Loiselle
Chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) is the photo-reactive fraction of the marine dissolved organic matter (DOM) pool. Changes in CDOM quality and quantity have impacts on marine microbial dynamics and the underwater light environment. One major source of CDOM is produced by marine bacteria through their alteration of pre-existing DOM substrates. In a series of microcosm experiments in controlled marine conditions, we explored the impact of polystyrene microplastics on the quality and quantity of microbial...

Experiment on the effects of oligo-alginate elicitation on juvenile and adult sporophytes of Saccharina japonica and Saccharina latissima, supplement to: Wang, Gaoge; Chang, Lirong; Zhang, Rui; Wang, Shasha; Wei, Xiaojiao; Rickert, Esther; Krost, Peter; Xiao, Luyang; Weinberger, Florian (2019): Can targeted defense elicitation improve seaweed aquaculture? Journal of Applied Phycology, 31(3), 1845-1854

Gaoge Wang, Lirong Chang, Rui Zhang, Shasha Wang, Xiaojiao Wei, Esther Rickert, Peter Krost, Luyang Xiao & Florian Weinberger
We here present data underlying a pilot study that investigated the effects of oligo-alginate elicitation on juvenile and adult sporophytes of Saccharina japonica cultivated in China and on adult sporophytes of Saccharina latissima cultivated in Germany. In two consecutive years, treatment with oligo-alginate clearly reduced the detachment of S. japonica juveniles from their substrate curtains during the nursery stage in greenhouse ponds (see data underlying Figure 1 https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.896660). Oligo-alginate elicitation also decreased the density of...

Remote and local drivers of oxygen and nitrate variability in the shallow oxygen minimum zone off Mauritania in June 2014, supplement to: Thomsen, Soeren; Karstensen, Johannes; Kiko, Rainer; Krahmann, Gerd; Dengler, Marcus; Engel, Anja (2019): Remote and local drivers of oxygen and nitrate variability in the shallow oxygen minimum zone off Mauritania in June 2014.

Upwelling systems play a key role in the global carbon and nitrogen cycles and are also of local relevance due to their high productivity and fish resources. To capture and understand the high spatial and temporal variability of physical and biogeochemical parameters found in these regions novel measurement technics have to be combined in an interdisciplinary manner. Here we use high-resolution glider-based physical-biogeochemical observations in combination with ship-based underwater vision profiler, sensor and bottle data...

UAV-based methane data from Barter Island, Northern Alaska, September 2017, supplement to: Oberle, Ferdinand K; Gibbs, Ann E; Richmond, Bruce M; Erikson, Li H; Waldrop, Mark P; Swarzenski, Peter W (2019): Towards determining spatial methane distribution on Arctic permafrost bluffs with an unmanned aerial system. SN Applied Sciences, 1(236)

Ferdinand K Oberle
Arctic permafrost stores vast amounts of methane (CH4) in subsurface reservoirs. Thawing permafrost creates areas for this potent greenhouse gas to be released to the atmosphere. Identifying 'hot spots' of methane flux on a local scale has been limited by the spatial scales of traditional ground-based or satellite-based methane-sampling methods. Here we present methane data from along the coast of Barter Island, Alaska that was produced with an Unmanned Aerial System and an off-the-shelf, cost-effective...

Holocene palaeoceanographic evolution off West Greenland, supplement to: Perner, Kerstin; Moros, Matthias; Jennings, Anne E; Lloyd, Jeremy M; Knudsen, Karen Luise (2013): Holocene palaeoceanographic evolution off West Greenland. The Holocene, 23(3), 374-387

Kerstin Perner, Matthias Moros, Anne E Jennings, Jeremy M Lloyd & Karen Luise Knudsen
Benthic foraminiferal assemblages from a core southwest of Disko Bugt provide a Holocene perspective (last ~7 ka BP) on ice-sheet/ocean interactions between the West Greenland Current (WGC) and the West Greenland ice sheet. Changes in the fauna reveal significant variations in the water mass properties (temperature and salinity) of the WGC through time. From 7.3 to 6.2 ka BP, a relatively warm/strong WGC influences ice-sheet melt in Disko Bugt and causes enhanced meltwater production, resulting...

2600 years of stratospheric volcanism reconstruction through sulfate isotopes for Antarctic ice cores

Elsa Gautier, Joël Savarino & James Farquhar
We present a 2600 year chronology of stratospheric volcanic events using isotopic signatures (Δ33S and in some cases Δ17O) of ice core sulfate. Five closely-located ice cores from Dome C, Antarctica, are used to reconstruct a record that differs subtly from recent reconstructions calibrated using synchronous volcanic sulfate deposition in Greenland and Antarctica to identify eruptions with global-scale sulfate distribution. Comparing the Dome C stratospheric reconstruction shows good agreement with the recent parts of these...

Pollen data from lake sediment core CH06 spanning the last ~9000 cal. yr. BP, supplement to: Epp, Laura Saskia; Kruse, Stefan; Kath, Nadja J; Stoof-Leichsenring, Kathleen Rosmarie; Tiedemann, Ralph; Pestryakova, Luidmila A; Herzschuh, Ulrike (2018): Temporal and spatial patterns of mitochondrial haplotype and species distributions in Siberian larches inferred from ancient environmental DNA and modeling. Scientific Reports, 8(1), 17436

Laura Saskia Epp
Changes in species' distributions are classically projected based on their climate envelopes. For Siberian forests, which have a tremendous significance for vegetation-climate feedbacks, this implies future shifts of each of the forest-forming larch (Larix) species to the north-east. However, in addition to abiotic factors, reliable projections must assess the role of historical biogeography and biotic interactions. Here, we use sedimentary ancient DNA and individual-based modelling to investigate the distribution of larch species and mitochondrial haplotypes...

Over the last four decades of palaeoclimate research, significant emphasis has been placed on the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) spanning 26.5-19 thousand years ago (ka), a period that saw significant (~125 m) sea-level reductions and major ice caps adorning large parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Here, we present evidence for another major glacial period spanning 71-59 ka (Marine Isotope Stage 4: MIS4) from a well-dated marine sequence offshore South Australia. The astronomically-tuned chronology of this...

Analysis of Fe in pore water, solid phase and water column of different stations on the northwestern Black Sea shelf, supplement to: Lenstra, Wytze K; Hermans, Martijn; Séguret, Marie J M; Witbaard, Rob; Behrends, Thilo; Dijkstra, Nikki; van Helmond, Niels A G M; Kraal, Peter; Laan, Patrick; Rijkenberg, Micha J A; Severmann, Silke; Teaca, Adrian; Slomp, Caroline P (2019): The shelf-to-basin iron shuttle in the Black Sea revisited. Chemical Geology, 511, 314-341

Wytze K Lenstra, Martijn Hermans, Marie J M Séguret, Rob Witbaard, Thilo Behrends, Nikki Dijkstra, Niels A G M van Helmond, Peter Kraal, Patrick Laan, Micha J A Rijkenberg, Silke Severmann, Adrian Teaca & Caroline P Slomp
Continental shelf sediments are a major source of iron (Fe) for phytoplankton in surface waters. In this study, we investigate the mechanisms that control release of Fe from shelf sediments and its lateral transport (shuttling) in oxic and hypoxic waters on the northwestern Black Sea shelf. We find that at two coastal stations near the outflow of the Danube river high input of organic matterdrives strong reductive dissolution of Fe(oxyhydr)oxides (henceforth termed Fe oxides) in...

Activity Ratios, concentrations, calculated and model ages of LIG fossil reef corals from Aqaba, Jordan, supplement to: Obert, J Christina; Scholz, Denis; Felis, Thomas; Lippold, Jörg; Jochum, Klaus Peter; Andreae, Meinrat O (2019): Improved constraints on open-system processes in fossil reef corals by combined Th/U, Pa/U and Ra/Th dating: A case study from Aqaba, Jordan. Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 245, 459-478

J Christina Obert, Denis Scholz, Thomas Felis, Jörg Lippold, Klaus Peter Jochum & Meinrat O Andreae
Here we present 230Th/U, 231Pa/U as well as 226Ra/230Th isotope ratios from five fossil reef corals of Last Interglacial origin from the Gulf of Aqaba, Northern Red Sea. The results show clear evidence for open-system behaviour with strongly elevated δ234U values and U concentrations indicating post-depositional U addition. The combined application of all isotope systems enables us to better constrain the nature and timing of the open-system processes than only based on the 230Th/U data.Quantitative...

Sediment data of different sites in the Ore Estuary sampled in Arpril 2015 and August 2015, supplement to: Lenstra, Wytze K; Egger, Matthias; van Helmond, Niels A G M; Kritzberg, Emma; Conley, Daniel J; Slomp, Caroline P (2018): Large variations in iron input to an oligotrophic Baltic Sea estuary: impact on sedimentary phosphorus burial. Biogeosciences, 15(22), 6979-6996

Wytze K Lenstra, Matthias Egger, Niels A G M van Helmond, Emma Kritzberg, Daniel J Conley & Caroline P Slomp
Estuarine sediments are key sites for removal of phosphorus (P) from rivers and the open sea. Vivianite, an Fe(II)-P mineral, can act as a major sink for P in Fe-rich coastal sediments. In this study, we investigate the burial of P in the Öre Estuary in the northern Baltic Sea. We find much higher rates of P burial at our five study sites (up to ∼ 0.145mol m−2 yr−1) when compared to more southern coastal...
