We image seismic intrinsic (Qi-1) and scattering (Qs-1) attenuation in Long Valley caldera, California, by analyzing more than 1700 vertical-component waveforms from local earthquakes. Observed energy envelopes are fit to the diffusion model (data files) and seismic attenuation images (anomalies files) are produced using two-dimensional space-weighting functions.
This dataset contains supporting data for the paper "Evaluation of version 3.0B of the BEHR OMI NO2 product" by Laughner, Zhu, and Cohen. Evaluation of new satellite trace gas products is an important step in proving their usefulness, and, in the case of NO2, is typically done by comparing the satellite-observed vertical column densities to independent measurements taken by aircraft or ground-based spectrometers. Input data required by the satellite retrieval may also be directly compared...
Remote sensing of oceanographic data often yields incomplete coverage of the measurement domain. This can limit interpretability of the data and identification of coherent features informative of ocean dynamics. Several methods exist to fill gaps of missing oceanographic data, and are often based on projecting the measurements onto basis functions or a statistical model. Herein, we use an information transport approach inspired from an image processing algorithm. This approach aims to restore gaps in data...
Large portions of eukaryotic genomes consist of transposable elements (TEs), and the establishment of transcription-repressing heterochromatin during early development safeguards genome integrity. Repeat-rich Y chromosomes can act as reservoirs for TEs (toxic Y effect), and TEs may exploit vulnerabilities associated with incomplete genomic defenses during early development. Here, we contrast the dynamics of early TE activation in two Drosophila species with vastly different Y chromosomes of different age. Zygotic TE expression is elevated in male...
We used live imaging to visualize the transcriptional dynamics of the Drosophila melanogaster even-skipped gene at single-cell and high temporal resolution as its seven stripe expression pattern forms, and developed tools to characterize and visualize how transcriptional bursting varies over time and space. We find that despite being created by the independent activity of five enhancers, even-skipped stripes are sculpted by the same kinetic phenomena: a coupled increase of burst frequency and amplitude. By tracking...
Mosquitoes are important vectors for pathogens that infect humans and other vertebrate animals. Some aspects of adult mosquito behavior and mosquito ecology play an important role in determining the capacity of vector populations to transmit pathogens. Here, we re-examine factors affecting the transmission of pathogens by mosquitoes using a new approach. Unlike most previous models, this framework considers the behavioral states and state transitions of adult mosquitoes through a sequence of activity bouts. We developed...

North America is a large continent with extensive climatic, geological, soil, and biological diversity. That biota is under threat from habitat destruction and climate change, making a quantitative assessment of biodiversity of critical importance. Rapid digitization of plant specimen records and accumulation of DNA sequence data enable a much-needed broad synthesis of species occurrences with phylogenetic data. Here we attempted the first such synthesis of a flora from such a large and diverse part of...
The BErkeley High Resolution (BEHR) OMI NO2 Prototype High Temporal Resolution Product makes use of high spatial and temporal resolution a priori NO2 profiles for a limited domain in the southeast United States, covering 1 June-30 Aug 2013. These retrievals have been used to evaluate the impact of daily temporal resolution of the high-spatial-resolution a priori NO2 profiles needed for the retrieval
As awareness of climate change increases more projects are beginning to include sea level rise in their planning and design. To better understand cutting edge examples of sea level rise adaptation we examined the current conditions and projected future changes from nine physical sea level rise adaptation projects in the San Francisco Bay.
This dataset shows estimated values for minimum depth to groundwater in the coastal Bay Area. The estimation is based on an interpolation that uses ground elevation data and minimum depth to water values measured at monitoring wells in the nine Bay Area counties over the past 20 years. NOTE: The most recently uploaded data file (August 24, 2018) has the highest accuracy in the interpolation. Please use this file rather than the older versions. A...
Videos of Gold Nanorods Etching in Graphene Liquid Cell Transmission Electron Microscopy- 28 mM FeCl3Matthew Hauwiller, Justin Ondry & A. Paul Alivisatos
Premade gold nanorods were etched in a graphene liquid cell and imaged using Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). An aqueous solution of gold nanorods, Tris Buffer-HCl, and FeCl3 was encapsulated between graphene sheets. The final concentration of FeCl3 was 28mM. Through a combination of the electron beam-generated radiolysis products and the FeCl3, the nanorods underwent non-equilibrium etching. See associated papers for more details.

Supplementary information for: Deterministic assembly of arrays of lithographically defined WS_2 and MoS_2 monolayer features directly from multilayer sources into van der Waals heterostructuresHayden Taylor, Vu Nguyen, Hannah Gramling, Clarissa Towle, Wan Li, Der-Hsien Lien, Hyungjin Kim, Daryl Chrzan, Ali Javey, Ke Xu & Joel Ager
One of the major challenges in the van der Waals (vdW) integration of 2D materials is achieving high-yield and high-throughput assembly of pre-defined sequences of monolayers into heterostructure arrays. Mechanical exfoliation has recently been studied as a promising technique to transfer monolayers from a multilayer source synthesized by other techniques, allowing the deposition of a wide variety of 2D materials without exposing the target substrate to harsh synthesis conditions. Although a variety of processes have...
Epigenetic changes can provide a pathway for organisms to respond to local environmental conditions by influencing gene expression. However, we still know little about the spatial distribution of epigenetic variation in natural systems, how it relates to the distribution of genetic variation and the environmental structure of the landscape, and the processes that generate and maintain it. Studies examining spatial patterns of genetic and epigenetic variation can provide valuable insights into how ecological and population...
Temporal dynamics of migration-linked genetic variation are driven by streamflows and riverscape permeabilitySuzanne Kelson, Michael Miller, Tasha Thompson, Sean O'Rourke & Stephanie Carlson
The permeability of landscapes is often explored spatially, but may also vary across time. For example, highways are more passable with low traffic, and mountain landscapes are more passable once snow-free. Landscape permeability especially influences migratory animals. Partial barriers are features that are passable in some conditions. Partial barriers are common in rivers due to the two-dimensional nature of river networks: aquatic organisms cannot circumvent in-river barriers. Barriers in river networks include waterfalls, logjams, or...
Behavioral, morphological, and ecological trait evolution in two clades of New World sparrows (Aimophila and Peucaea, Passerellidae)Carla Cicero, Nicholas Mason, Lauryn Benedict & James Rising
The New World sparrows (Passerellidae) are a large and diverse group of songbirds that have been the subject of many studies on ecology, behavior, and evolutionary relationships. Here, we studied two clades of sparrows (Aimophila, Peucaea) to examine the evolution of behavioral, morphological, and ecological traits in a phylogenetic framework. Specifically, we inferred phylogenetic relationships in these clades, conducted ancestral state reconstructions, and asked whether patterns of trait evolution extend more broadly to New World...
Migration is the primary strategy that temperate birds use to avoid overwintering under harsh conditions. As a consequence, migratory birds have evolved specific morphological features in their wings and skeleton. However, in addition to varying in overall shape and size, bone can also change at the microstructural level by, for example, increasing its thickness. Such changes are critical to preventing fracture and damage under repeated loading (fatigue), yet it is not known whether migratory behaviour...
The availability of sufficient and diverse resources across time is important for maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. In this study we examine the potential for variation in environmental conditions across topographic gradients to extend floral resource timing. Flowering time on a landscape may vary across topography due to differences in abiotic factors, species turnover, or genotypic differences. However, the extent to which this variation in phenology affects overall flowering duration on a landscape, and...
Arboreal animals often leap through complex canopies to travel and avoid predators. Their success at making split-second potentially life-threatening decisions of biomechanical capability depends on skillful use of acrobatic maneuvers and learning from past efforts. Here, we found that free-ranging fox squirrels (Sciurus niger) leaping across novel, simulated branches decided where to launch by balancing a trade-off between gap distance and branch-bending compliance. Squirrels quickly learned to modify impulse generation upon repeated leaps from novel,...
