Survey on mine-water geothermal in Poland

K Iwinska, K Maczka & A Lis
The study in three coal mining regions: Lower Silesia, Upper Silesia and Lublin (each N=500) was conducted using Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI). The questionnaire includes the block of questions concerning mine water awareness, climate change and local/place attachment. The survey online took 15 to 20 minutes and was prepared after in-depth pilot research among participants with different education level from the mining regions. We used the uninformed approach to the survey, so there were...

CPC particle count at Halley VIa CASLab 2020

Joshua Eveson & Freya Squires
A TSI CPC (Condensation Particle Counter) Model 3010 was installed at Halley's Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab), a mile from the station's generator, in the (austral) summer of 2019/20 and began collecting data in February as a long term dataset. The inlet is a 3m length of antistatic tubing, with a portion left untethered so that it can move with the prevailing wind. This is to prevent icing of the inlet by allowing the inlet...

Polarimetric ApRES data on a profile across Dome C, East Antarctica, 2013-2014

Hugh Corr, Catherine Ritz & Carlos Martin
The radar data collected in 2013-2014 at Dome C, East Antarctica, aims to understand bulk preferred crystal orientation fabric near a dome. We measure changes in englacial birefringence and anisotropic scattering in 21 sites along a 36 km long profile across Dome C. These optical properties are obtained by analysing radar returns for different antenna orientations. More details can be found in Ershadi et al, 2021. Funding was provided by BAS National Capability and IPEV...

Carbon dioxide flux and isotopic composition from sedimentary rock weathering, Draix-Bleone Critical Zone Observatory, France

G. Soulet, R.G. Hilton, M.H. Garnett & S. Klotz
The measurements and data contained here were obtained to study the release of carbon dioxide during the chemical weathering of sedimentary rocks. The primary aim of the research was to explore how these CO2 fluxes were related to environmental parameters (temperature, hydrology). Weathering of sedimentary rocks can result in CO2 release from the oxidation of rock organic carbon oxidation, but also due to the oxidation of sulfide minerals, production of sulfuric acid and subsequent release...

Free energy calculations of noble-gas containing liquid iron and silicate melt

Y Li
Free energy calculations of noble-gas containing liquid iron and silicate melts at 50 GPa (3500 K) and 135 GPa (4200 K). The chemical potentials of noble gases can be obtained from these calculations. The Gibbs free energy of a series of iron and silicate melts with different concentrations of He were calculated. Then the chemical potentials of He can be derived from the concentration dependent Gibbs free energies. The chemical potentials of Ne, Ar, Kr...

Electron Electromagnetic Ion Cyclotron diffusion coefficients calculated from Van Allen Probe observations

Johnathan Ross & Sarah Glauert
Electromagnetic Ion Cyclotron (EMIC) wave are important for the losses of ultra-relativistic electrons from the Earth's radiation belts. In this work, statistical EMIC diffusion coefficients are calculated from Van Allen Probe A observations of EMIC waves from the entire mission. The diffusion coefficient calculations include the observed L* and activity dependent distributions in plasma density and wave spectra so that the wave-particle interactions modelled are representative of those in the radiation belts. These diffusion coefficients...
