Chimney Meadow (Church Field) soil water retention measurements (pF curves)

K. Blyth
Soil moisture and Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) measurements within the top metre of soil at Church Field, Chimney Meadow National Nature Reserve. Church Field lies on a clay lens which overlies surrounding sand and gravel soils. Apart from the A and B horizons, the clay was found to be fairly homogenous down to the maximum depth of 1.1m of the access pit. On the 1:250,000 Soil Map of South East England the location falls into...

Global ammonia emissions from seabirds

S.N. Riddick, U. Dragosits, T.D. Blackall, F. Daunt, S. Wanless & M.A. Sutton
The dataset contains three modelled estimates of global ammonia emissions from seabird colonies, at a spatial resolution of 0.1 degrees latitude/longitude. The model estimates were derived with a) detailed global seabird population data collated from a large number of sources (data sources date from 1980-2010 for different parts of the world) b) climate data (source: High-resolution Gridded Datasets, Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia, UK. http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/cru/data/hrg/ last updated by Harris, I. (2007), date: 1995)...

Exposure of burrowing mammals to Radon Rn-222 in Northwest England

N.A. Beresford, C.L. Barnett, J. Vives I Batlle, E.D. Potter, Z-F. Ibrahimi, T.S. Barlow, C. Schieb, D.G. Jones & D. Copplestone
This dataset includes individual passive detector measurements of radon Rn-222 in the air of artificial burrows, Rn-222 measurements by instrumentation in soil gas of interstitial soil pores and burrow air, gamma analyses results for soil samples and, soil moisture and temperature data. Estimates of absorbed dose rates to wildlife from exposure to natural background radionuclides are required to put estimates of dose rates arising from regulated releases of radioactivity and proposed benchmarks into context. These...

Chloroplast DNA marker data for Acacia senegal

D. Odee, A. Telford, J. Wilson, A. Gaye & S. Cavers
Data on genetic variation in Acacia senegal across its natural range, based on two chloroplast marker types - RFLP (restriction fragment length polymorphism) and microsatellites.

Circumpolar boreal forest burnt area

C. George, F. Gerard & H. Balzter
Burnt areas are presented with a daily date of burn at 500m resolution for the circumpolar boreal forest zone. The dataset comprises eleven tiff files, one for each year: 2001 to 2011. The aim of this dataset is the improved understanding of spatio-temporal patterns and dynamics of boreal fire intensity and extent, the driving factors behind these variations, and the consequence for carbon fluxes for the whole boreal area. The source data for the daily...

United Kingdom Butterfly Monitoring Scheme: collated indices 2011

M. Botham, D. Roy, T. Brereton, I. Middlebrook & Z. Randle
Collated indices are a relative measure of butterfly abundance across monitored sites in the UK, calculated from data collected by the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme (UKBMS). Collated indices are calculated annually for each individual butterfly species that has been recorded on five or more sites in that year. Based on this criterion collated indices have been calculated for the entire UKBMS time series from 1976 to the current year for the majority of species. For...

ITE Land Classification of Great Britain 2007

R.G.H. Bunce, C.J. Barr, R.T. Clarke, D.C. Howard & W.A. Scott
The Land Classification 2007 is a classification of Great Britain into a set of 45 environmental strata, termed land classes, to be used as a basis for ecological survey, originally developed by the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (ITE) in the late 1970s and building upon previous 1990 and 1998 versions. The strata were created from the multivariate analysis of 75 environmental variables, including climatic data, topographic data, human geographical features and geology data. The Land...

Future flows climate data

C. Prudhomme, S. Dadson, D. Morris, J. Williamson, G. Goodsell, S. Crooks, L. Boolee, H. Davies, G. Buys & T. Lafon
Future Flows Climate (FF-HadRM3-PPE) is an 11-member ensemble climate projection for Great Britain at a 1-km resolution spanning from 1950 to 2098. It was specifically developed for hydrological application and contain daily time series of Available Precipitation, which is the precipiated water available to hydrological processes after delays due to snow and ice storage are accounted for; and monthly reference Potential Evapotranspiration calculated using the FAO56 method. Future Flows Climate is derived from the Hadley...

Future flows hydrology data

T. Haxton, S. Crooks, C.R. Jackson, A.K.A.P. Barkwith, J. Kelvin, J. Williamson, J.D. Mackay, L. Wang, H. Davies, A. Young & C. Prudhomme
Future Flows Hydrology (FF-HydMod-PPE) is an 11-member ensemble projections of river flow and groundwater levels time series for 283 catchments and 24 boreholes in Great Britain. It is derived from Future Flows Climate, an 11-member 1-km bias-corrected and downscaled climate projection products based on the SRES A1B emission scenario. River Flows data are at a daily time step: Groundwater Levels data are at a monthly time step. Future Flows Hydrology span from 1951 to 2098....

Concentrations of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) eggs in the UK

J. Crosse, R. Shore, R. Wadsworth, K. Jones & M. G. Pereira
Data on long term trends in Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) eggs. Samples were selected from the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme (PBMS) Archive. Failed or abandoned sparrowhawk eggs were taken from nests by licensed egg collectors and archived as part of the monitoring activities of the PBMS in the UK. The period studied was 1985 to 2007. Data are presented in three tables including detected PBDEs, interpolated PBDEs and sample properties which...

MultiMOVE: A Package of niche models for British vegetation

P. Henrys, E.C. Rowe, C.D. Evans, B.A. Emmett, S.M. Smart & A. Butler
MultiMOVE is an R package that contains fitted niche models for almost 1500 plant species in Great Britain. This package allows the user to access these models, which have been fitted using multiple statistical techniques, to make predictions of species occurrence from specified environmental data. It also allows plotting of relationships between species' occurrence and individual covariates so the user can see what effect each environmental variable has on the specific species in question. The...
