Seismic catalogues of the 2018-2019 volcano-seismic crisis offshore Mayotte, Comoro Islands

Simone Cesca, Sebastian Heimann, Jean Letort, Hoby N. T. Razafindrakoto, Torsten Dahm & Fabrice Cotton
In May 2018 a volcano-seismic sequence accompanied the upward migration of a magmatic intrusion from Moho depth to the seafloor led to the drainage of the deep magmatic reservoir and to the birth of a submarine volcano offshore the island of Mayotte, Comoro Islands. This process of magma transport was accompanied by an intense seismic swarm and peculiar long-duration very long period signals. Between 1 January 2018 and 1 May 2019 we detected 407 sources...

Digital Image Correlation data from oblique convergence experiments with wet kaolin

Michele Cooke, Kevin Toenenboehn & Jennifer Hatch
Experiments of oblique convergence at angles of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 degrees from the margin within wet kaolin. One suite of experiments, denoted as ‘precut’, has a vertical surface precut within the clay with an electrified wire. The precut surface lies directly above the basal oblique dislocation. The other suite of experiments is ‘uncut’. Regardless of whether the experiments have a precut surface, slip partitioned fault systems, develop and persist in the...

Rock-Ocean-Lake-Ice topographic gravity field model (ROLI model) expanded up to degree 3660

Oleh Abrykosov, E. Sinem Ince, Christoph Foerste & Frank Flechtner
The determination of the global gravity field has gained momentum due to high accuracy satellite-derived observations and development of forward gravity modelling. Forward modelling computes the global gravitational field from mass distribution sources instead of actual gravity measurements and helps improving and complementing the medium to high frequency components of the global gravity field models. In this study, we approximate the global gravity potential of the Earth’s upper crust based on ellipsoidal approximation and a...

Multi-temporal landslide inventory for a study area in Southern Kyrgyzstan derived from multi-sensor optical satellite time series data (1986 – 2013)

Robert Behling & Sigrid Roessner
Multi-temporal landslide inventories are important information for the understanding of landslide dynamics and related predisposing and triggering factors, and thus a crucial prerequisite for probabilistic hazard and risk assessment. Despite the great importance of these inventories, they do not exist for many landslide prone regions in the world. In this context, the recently evolving global-scale availability of high temporal and spatial resolution optical satellite imagery (RapidEye, Sentinel-2A/B, planet) has opened up new opportunities for the...

Sediment geochemistry data for the publication: “10Be/9Be ratios reveal marine authigenic clay formation”

Anne Bernhardt, Marcus Oelze, Julien Bouchez, Friedhelm von Blanckenburg, Mahyar Mohtadi, Marcus Christl & Hella Wittmann-Oelze
As reverse weathering has been shown to impact long-term changes in atmospheric CO2 levels, it is crucial to develop quantitative tools to reconstruct marine authigenic clay formation. We explored the potential of the beryllium (Be) isotope ratio (10Be/9Be) recorded in marine clay-sized sediment to track neoformation of authigenic clays. The power of such proxy relies on the orders-of-magnitude difference in 10Be/9Be ratios between continental Be and Be dissolved in seawater. On riverine and marine sediments...

Chemical and Isotopic Composition of Gas in Salt Beds of a Potash Mine

Martin Zimmer, Bettina Strauch, Axel Zirkler, Samuel Niedermann & Andrea Vieth-Hillebrand
In eastern Hesse and western Thuringia, Germany hosts significant potassium-bearing salt deposits industrially excavated in the Werra-Fulda mining district. The salt belongs to the upper Permian (Zechstein) and was deposited around 258 to 252.5 Ma ago. In the Werra-Fulda mining district, the halite rocks (Werra-Rocksalt, z1NA) contain two minable potash seams, potash Seam Thüringen (z1KTh) and potash Seam Hessen (z1KHe), with an average thickness between 2 m and 3 m (Figure 1). To investigate the...

Flood characteristics of the 2016-02-22 event on the Eshtemoa River, Israel

Sophie Lagarde, Michael Dietze, Florent Gimbert, Johnathan B. Laronne, Jens M. Turowski & Eran Halfi
Bedload transport is a key process in fluvial morphodynamics and hydraulic engineering, but is notoriously difficult to measure. The recent advent of stream-side seismic monitoring techniques provides an alternative to in-stream monitoring techniques, which are often costly, staff-intensive, and cannot be deployed during large floods. The Nahal (river) Eshtemoa is a gravel-bed river draining 119 km² of the Southern Hebron Mountains and the Northern Negev, northeast of Beer Sheva, Israel. The climate in the catchment...

SEISVOL - Seismic and Infrasound Networks to study the volcano Oldoinyo Lengai

Miriam Christina Reiss & Georg Rümpker
Oldoinyo Lengai in the North Tanzanian Divergence is the only active natrocarbonatite volcano world-wide and presents an important endmember magmatic system in a young rift segment of the East African Rift System. This volcano typically experiences long-duration episodes of natrocarbonatitic effusions with intermittent short-duration explosive eruptions. To better understand the role of the stress interactions and magma plumbing on the eruptions dynamics, this study aims to constrain the subsurface magmatic architecture of Oldoinyo Lengai, and...
