Model outputs of surface PM2.5 concentration

Huanxin-Jessie Zhang & Jun Wang
Exposure to ambient PM2.5 (fine particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 µm) can lead to adverse health effects. Air quality forecasting of PM2.5 is critical for informing the general public and decision makers to take preventive cautions. Air quality forecasting models of PM2.5 are subject to large uncertainties due to factors such as the incomplete representation of the physical and chemical processes. Here we develop a computationally efficient bias-correction framework to improve surface...

Dataset: Fecal PCB metabolites in germ-free mice compared to conventional mice

Xueshu Li
The PCB metabolome in feces of germ-free (GF) and conventional (CV) mice was systematically explored with nontarget high-resolution mass spectrometry (Nt-HRMS). The total PCB metabolite levels were dose and gut microbiome dependent. This finding demonstrate that the gut microbiome plays a role in the metabolism and excretion of PCB metabolites. This dataset summarizes relative levels of individual PCB metabolites in feces of both CV and GF mice, including the raw data files collected from instrument...

Videos of Blast Wave Experiment in Dusty Plasma

Anton Kananovich
Data are provided here, in video format, for one of the shock-wave experiments reported in the PhD thesis of Anton Kananovich. The experiment was performed using a dusty plasma, which was manipulated by an exciter wire that was moved at a supersonic speed to launch a shock wave. The data were recorded by a high-speed video camera, viewing from the top. Further details are provided in the thesis.

WRF-Chem model outputs of surface PM2.5 concentrations in India during November 2017

Behrooz Roozitalab, Gregory R Carmichael & Sarath K. Guttikunda
Northern India experienced an extreme air pollution episode in November 2017. We used WRF-Chem model to simulate this episode. In order to capture PM2.5 (fine particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 µm) peaks, we modified input chemical boundary conditions and biomass burning emissions using a set of experiments. This dataset includes the simulation results for the base scenario surface PM2.5 concentrations, which showed the best statistics when evaluated against different observation and satellite...

Dataset Describing Biodegradation of Individual Polychlorinated Biphenyl Congeners (PCBs) by Paraburkholderia xenovorans LB400 in presence and absence of sediment slurry

Rachel F Marek, Keri C Hornbuckle, Jerald L Schnoor, Christian M. Bako & Timothy E Mattes
This dataset describes the biodegradation of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners by Paraburkholderia xenovorans LB400 in absence and presence of PCB-contaminated sediment slurry, over time (Bako et. al., In Review). These experiments were designed to further understand how biodegradation of PCB-degrading microorganisms can be limited by slow mass transfer of PCB molecules from the sediment particles to living cells. The data resulting from these experiments can inform future experimental design and be reused by other researchers...

Toxicity assessment data from subchronic inhalation exposure to a school air mixture (SAM) of PCBs

Peter S Thorne, Hui Wang, Susanne Flor, Laura E Gosse, Andrea Dodd, Violet E Klenov & Jeffrey M Stolwijk
This dataset is related to research article: Comprehensive subchronic inhalation toxicity assessment of an indoor school air mixture of PCBs. In this research, we generated a school air mixture (SAM) of airborne polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), designed to match the profile of an older school from our adolescent cohort study (the AESOP Study). Female Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed either to SAM or filtered air (sham) in nose-only exposure systems, 4 h/day for 4 weeks. Positive control...

Placing Papers Dataset

Amy H Chen
The market for contemporary authors’ archives in the United States began when research libraries needed to cheaply provide sources for the swelling number of students and faculty following World War II. Soon, the demand for contemporary authors’ archives developed into a multimillion-dollar trade. Writers and their families enjoyed their new opportunity to make money, as did the book dealers and literary agents with the foresight to pivot their businesses to serve living authors. For a...

Dataset for \"Using Density Matrix Quantum Monte Carlo for Calculating Exact-on-Average Finite-Temperature Energies for ab Initio Hamiltonians in a Finite Basis Set\"

Sai Kumar Ramadugu, Fionn D Malone, James J Shepherd & Hayley R Petras
This data set contains inputs, outputs and integral files used for initiator density matrix quantum Monte Carlo (i-DMQMC) simulations of various atoms and molecules with and without the interaction picture. These include the beryllium atom (STO-3G); H2O (STO-3G or STO-6G); and H10 (1.786 a.u. and 2.4 a.u., STO-3G). The H10 integral files are not included since they were from other authors (https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jctc.8b00569). Full configuration interaction calculations are also included as appropriate. The H2O and beryllium...

High spatial resolution top-down SO2 and NOx emissions over China

Zhen Qu, Yi Wang, Jun Wang & Daven K Henze
Accurate air quality simulation and forecast require timely-updated emission inventory. Compared with the bottom-up approach that has at least one-year time lag, the top-down approach that uses satellite observations of atmospheric composition to estimate emissions can provide timely emission inventory. We integrate SO2 and NO2 observations from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) satellite sensors with the GEOS-Chem adjoin model to estimate SO2 and NOx emissions over China (2005-12-01 to...

Dataset for PCBs in Food

Panithi Saktrakulkla, Tuo Lan, Jason J X Hua, Rachel F Marek, Peter S Thorne & Keri C Hornbuckle
We measured the concentrations of 205 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners in 26 food items: beef steak, butter, canned tuna, catfish, cheese, eggs, french fries, fried chicken, ground beef, ground pork, hamburger, hot dog, ice cream, liver, luncheon meat, margarine, meat-free dinner, milk, pizza, poultry, salmon, sausage, shrimp, sliced ham, tilapia, and vegetable oil. Using Diet History Questionnaire II, we calculated the PCB dietary exposure in mothers and children participating in the AESOP Study in East...

Dataset: Fatty Liver and Impaired Hepatic Metabolism Alter the Congener-specific Distribution of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) in Mice with A Liver-specific Deletion of Cytochrome P450 Reductase

Xueshu Li, Chunyun Zhang, Kai Wang & Hans-Joachim Lehmler
This excel data sheet summarizes quality assurance /quality control (QA/QC) data, including method detection limits (MDL), recovery rates of spiked ongoing precision and recovery standards (OPR) in both blank solvent and tissue matrix, limits of detection in both mass (ng) and concentration (ng/g tissue) from a study investigating the congener specific tissue distribution in mice exposed orally to Aroclor 1254.
