There were no changes to the simulation data.- On November 27, 2018 we republished simulation data for monthly variables swe, soilmoist and rootmoist for impact model PCR-GLOBWB due to an error in the units. Instead of reporting mass per area (kg/m2), values corresponded to mass flux...

Radiance Light Trends

Jurij Stare & Christopher Kyba
Radiance Light Trends is a GIS web application that is designed to quickly display information about radiance trends at a specific location (available online at https://lighttrends.lightpollutionmap.info). It uses data from two satellite systems, DMSP-OLS and VIIRS DNB, with data processing by NOAA. New VIIRS layers are added automatically as soon as NOAA makes them available to public. The web application allows the user to examine changes in nighttime light emissions (nearly) worldwide, from 1992 up...

Supplement to “Synchronization of great subduction megathrust earthquakes: Insights from scale model analysis”

Matthias Rosenau, Illia Horenko, Fabio Corbi, Michael Rudolf, Ralf Kornhuber & Onno Oncken
This data set provides data from subduction zone earthquake experiments and analysis described in Rosenau et al. (2019). In the experiments analogue seismotectonic scale models of subduction zones characterized by two seismogenic asperities are used to study the interaction of asperities over multiple seismic cycles by means of static (Coulomb failure) stress transfer. Various asperity geometries (lateral/along-strike of the subduction zone distance and vertical/across-strike of the subduction zone offset) are tested on their effect on...

VERSION HISTORY:- On April 10, 2018 we renamed some simulation files of impact models LPJ-GUESS, ORCHIDEE, JULES-UoE and VISIT, due to the correction of social scenario label “nosoc” for “varsoc”. For impact model VISIT, “nosoc” was relabeled to “pressoc”. These data caveats were documented in the ISIMIP website (ISIMIP2a Biomes: correction of scenario names in file names).- On October 17, 2018, we republished all simulation data for all biomes sector impact models to get the...

Supporting Information to: Resolving geophysical signals by terrestrial gravimetry: a time domain assessment of the correction-induced uncertainty

Michal Mikolaj, Marvin Reich & Andreas Güntner
This publication contains the supplementary data set to Mikolaj et al. "Resolving geophysical signals by terrestrial gravimetry: a time domain assessment of the correction-induced uncertainty" (2019, JGR-Solid Earth). The aim of the article is to estimate the uncertainty of terrestrial gravity corrections applied to resolve small-scale gravity effects. The uncertainty of the gravity corrections is assessed using various models of the tidal effect, large-scale hydrology, non-tidal ocean loading, and atmosphere. Taken into account are widely...

Frank Zwaan, Guido Schreurs & Susanne J.H. Buiter
This data set includes 40 videos (+ 1 image) depicting the surface evolution of 39 experiments on crustal extension, as well as 4D CT imagery (figures and videos) of 6 of these experiments. The experiments examined the influence of the method for driving extension (foam base, rubber base, plate base or conveyor base) for localization of deformation in overlying layers of brittle-only and brittle-viscous materials representing the earth’s crust. All experiments were performed at the...

Data Supplement to: Cosmogenic 10Be in river sediment: where grain size matters and why

Renee van Dongen, Dirk Scherler, Hella Wittmann & Friedhelm von Blanckenburg
Concentrations of in-situ-produced cosmogenic 10Be in river sediment are widely used to estimate catchment-average denudation rates. Typically, the 10Be concentrations are measured in the sand fraction of river sediment. However, the grain size of bedload sediment in most bedrock rivers covers a much wider range. Where 10Be concentrations depend on grain size, denudation rate estimates based on the sand fraction alone are potentially biased. To date, knowledge about catchment attributes that may induce grain-size-dependent 10Be...

GCex - Geochemical model exploration

Janis Jatnieks, Mike Sips, Marco De Lucia & Doris Dransch
Geochemical models are used to seek answers about composition and evolution of groundwater, spill remediation, viability of geothermal resources and other important geoscientific applications. To understand these processes, it is useful to evaluate geochemical model response to different input parameter combinations. Running the model with varying input parameters creates a large amount of output data. It is a challenge to screen this data from the model to identify the significant relationships between input parameters and...

Magnitude scales, attenuation models and feature matrices for the IPOC catalog

Jannes Münchmeyer, Dino Bindi, Christian Sippl, Ulf Leser & Frederik Tilmann
In Münchmeyer et al. 2019 magnitudes scales for Northern Chile have been derived with a focus on low uncertainties. The data set consists of three parts. First, a version of the IPOC catalog with the derived magnitude scales ML and MA and their uncertainties. Second, the attenuation functions for different waveform features. Third, the full matrix of features and the resulting single station magnitude predictions.The underlying IPOC catalog was obtained from Sippl et al. (2018)....

Seismic sensing of hydraulic and sediment transport patterns below frozen subarctic river

Michael Dietze & Lina Polvi
Our understanding of the effects of ice on channel morphodynamics and bedload transport in northern rivers, frozen for several months, are hindered by the difficulties of ‘seeing’ through the ice. We use continuous seismic records of a small network at the Sävar River in northern Sweden to interpret processes and quantify water and sediment fluxes. We apply a seismic inversion approach to determine seasonal differences in hydraulics and bedload sediment transport under ice-covered vs. open-channel...

Integrated Geophysical Exploration Technologies for Deep Fractured Geothermal Systems. Report on the magnetotelluric data of project IGET.2006

Gerard Muñoz, Oliver Ritter, Ute Weckmann, Naser Meqbel & Michael Becken
The Integrated Geophysical Exploration Technologies for Deep Fractured Geothermal Systems project (I-GET) was aimed at developing an innovative strategy for geophysical exploration, particularly to exploit the full potential of seismic and electromagnetic exploration methods in detecting permeable zones and fluid bearing fractures. The proposed geothermal exploration approach was applied in selected European geothermal systems with different geological and thermodynamic reservoir characteristics: in Italy (high enthalpy reservoir in metamorphic rocks), in Iceland (high enthalpy reservoir in...

Seismic Recordings for SMARTIE1: Seismic Monitoring And Research of Wind Turbine Induced Emissions 1

Toni Zieger, Nikolaus Lerbs, Joachim R.R. Ritter & Michael Korn
SMARTIE1 is a joint seismological experiment of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Leipzig University. We installed in total 36 seismic stations as ring-like and profile-like measurements near to a single wind turbine (WT) at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT) in Pfinztal, SW Germany, for 21 days. The main goals of this project are a better understanding of a single WT as a seismic source and the development of propagation models...

Earthquake catalogs related to \"Analysis of microseismicity framing M >2.5 earthquakes at The Geysers geothermal field, California\"

Stephan Bentz, Patricia Martínez-Garzón, Grzegorz Kwiatek, Georg Dresen & Marco Bohnhoff
Preparatory mechanisms accompanying or leading to nucleation of larger earthquakes have been observed at both laboratory and field scale, but the precise conditions favoring extended nucleation processes are still largely unknown. In particular, it remains a matter of debate why earthquakes often occur spontaneously without noticeable precursors as opposed to an extended failure process accompanied by foreshocks. In this study, we have generated new high-resolution seismicity catalogs framing the occurrence of 20 ML > 2.5...

Upper thermosphere neutral wind cross-track component deduced from CHAMP accelerometer data

Matthias Förster & Eelco Doornbos
This dataset comprises global upper thermospheric cross-track neutral wind measurements obtained from accelerometer data of the CHAMP satellite during its almost ten year’s lifetime from 2001 to 2009. One key scientific instrument on-board CHAMP was a sensitive triaxial accelerometer. It was located at the spacecraft's centre of mass and sampled effectively accelerations due to non-gravitational forces with an accuracy of ~3×10^-9 ms^-2 (Doornbos et al., 2010). The along-track air drag measurements resulted in thermospheric mass...
