Rates of fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis, phenol oxidation and potential denitrification in sand and gravel sediments from an agriculturally-impacted stream

S. Ullah, L. Glover & A. Percival
The dataset contains measurements of fluorescein, dopachrome and nitrous oxide production from incubation experiments of streambed sediments. The sediments were collected in five pseudo-replicates from 0 to 10cm depth using a 5cm-diameter AMS slide hammer and trowel at two locations within the Wood Brook, Staffordshire, in June 2015. Samples were collected from two reaches within the stream, a mid-stream sandy reach and a downstream gravel reach. The sediment was used in laboratory incubation experiments to...

Digital Surface Models for the South Saskatchewan River, Canada

P. Ashworth, A. Nicholas, D. Parsons & G. Sambrook Smith
Data were collected in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to provide Digital Surface Models (DSM) for two sections of the South Saskatchewan River, Canada. DSMs were generated using aerial plane images with a 0.06m ground resolution, captured at a height of c. 1500 m from a fixed-wing aeroplane with an UltraCamXp sensor. DSMs were generated as part of NERC project NE/L00738X/1. DSMs were constructed using imagery obtained on four occasions (13th May 2015; 2nd Sept 2016;...

Data from: Resilience or robustness: identifying topological vulnerabilities in rail networks

Alessio Pagani, Guillem Mosquera, Aseel Alturki, Samuel Johnson, Stephen Jarvis, Alan Wilson, Weisi Guo & Liz Varga
Many critical infrastructure systems have network structure and are under stress. Despite their national importance, the complexity of large-scale transport networks means we do not fully understand their vulnerabilities to cascade failures. The research in this paper examines the interdependent rail networks in Greater London and surrounding commuter area. We focus on the morning commuter hours, where the system is under the most demand stress. There is increasing evidence that the topological shape of the...

Data from: Endocranial anatomy and life habits of the Early Triassic archosauriform Proterosuchus fergusi

Emily Brown, Richard Butler, Martin Ezcurra, Bhart-Anjan Bhullar & Stephan Lautenschlager
Proterosuchids are an important group of carnivorous basal archosauriforms characterised by a bizarre and enigmatic downturned premaxilla that overhangs the lower jaw. They are particularly significant because they radiated in the immediate aftermath of the Permian–Triassic mass extinction, and represent one of the best known ‘disaster taxa’ following that event. While traditionally considered semi-aquatic, recent histological studies and geological data have suggested that they more likely inhabited terrestrial environments. By utilising computed tomographic (CT) data,...

Data from: Quantifying the completeness of the bat fossil record

Emily E. Brown, Daniel D. Cashmore, Nancy B. Simmons & Richard J. Butler
Bats (Chiroptera) are one of the most successful extant mammalian orders, uniquely capable of powered flight and laryngeal echolocation. The timing and evidence for evolution of their novel adaptations has been difficult to ascertain from the fossil record due to chronological gaps (e.g. during the Palaeocene) and the fragmentary nature of most fossil bat material. Changes in fossil specimen completeness through time and space can bias our understanding of macroevolutionary processes. Here, we quantify the...

SMPS and HTDMA dataset for analysis of particle hygroscopicity

Tuan Vu & Roy M. Harrison
Hygroscopic properties of aerosols are an essential parameter to predict the roles of aerosols in cloud droplet formation and to estimate particle lung deposition. The objective of this study was to introduce a new approach to classify and predict the hygroscopic growth factors (Gf) of specific atmospheric sub-micrometre particle types in a mixed aerosol based on measurement of the ensemble hygroscopic growth factors and particle number size distribution (PNSD). PNSDs were measured in two intensive...

Orthomosaic imagery for the South Saskatchewan River, Canada

P. Ashworth, A. Nicholas, D. Parsons & G. Sambrook Smith
Data were collected in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to provide high resolution imagery for two sections of the South Saskatchewan River, Canada. Photographs were acquired using conventional aerial plane images with a 0.06m ground resolution, captured at a height of approximately 1500m from a fixed-wing aeroplane with an UltraCamXp sensor. Imagery was obtained on four occasions (13th May 2015; 2nd Sept 2016; 8th June 2017; and 12th June 2017). The dataset consists of eight orthomosaics;...

Data from: Mathematical modelling of the vitamin C clock reaction

Ryan Kerr, William Thomson & David Smith
Chemical clock reactions are characterised by a relatively long induction period followed by a rapid `switchover' during which the concentration of a \emph{clock chemical} rises rapidly. In addition to their interest in chemistry education, these reactions are relevant to industrial and biochemical applications. A substrate-depletive, non-autocatalytic clock reaction involving household chemicals (vitamin C, iodine, hydrogen peroxide and starch) is modelled mathematically via a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Following dimensional analysis the model is...

Data from: Effects of body plan evolution on the hydrodynamic drag and energy requirements of swimming in ichthyosaurs

Susana Gutarra, Benjamin Moon, Imran Rahman, Colin Palmer, Stephan Lautenschlager, Alison Brimacombe & Michael Benton
Ichthyosaurs are an extinct group of fully marine tetrapods that were well adapted to aquatic locomotion. During their ~160-million-year existence, they evolved from elongate and serpentine forms into stockier, fish-like animals, convergent with sharks and dolphins. Here, we use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to quantify the impact of this transition on the energy demands of ichthyosaur swimming for the first time. We run computational simulations of water flow using three-dimensional digital models of nine ichthyosaurs...

Numerical model simulations of channel flow for the South Saskatchewan River, Canada

P. Ashworth, A. Nicholas, D. Parsons, G. Sambrook Smith & C. Unsworth
Datasets consists of the results of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) flow simulations for a section of the South Saskatchewan River, Canada. The aim of these CFD simulations was to investigate the effect of dunes on the depth-averaged and near-bed flow fields. Modelling was carried out using the open source CFD package OpenFOAM to solve the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. The dataset consists of two files, one with simulation results for a river bed characterised by alluvial...

Record of expert inputs shaping future city discourses for Urban Living Birmingham

M.H. Grace, A.J. Scott, J.P. Sadler, D.G. Proverbs & N. Grayson
The dataset consists of the transcripts of expert inputs considering how the conceptual thinking for both ‘smart’ and ‘natural or biophilic’ cities could combine to inform future urban discourses and critically reviewed a set of emerging characteristics that described the interface between these alternative discourses. These inputs include informed practice-based perspectives on themes identified in the literature and comparative assessments, testing the integrating principles identified in the research against business as usual silo approaches, which...

Depth and velocity measurements in the South Saskatchewan River, Canada (2015-2017)

C. Unsworth, A. Nicholas, P. Ashworth, D. Parsons & G. Sambrook Smith
Data were collected in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to provide information on the distribution of flow depth and depth-averaged flow velocity at cross-sections on the South Saskatchewan River, Canada. Data were obtained using a Sontek M9 acoustic Doppler current profiler (aDcp) mounted onto either a small zodiac boat or a SonTek Hydroboard. Data for each cross-section is recorded in a single file. Individual points within each file represent single locations on the particular cross-section. Data...

Source Apportionment of Fine Organic Carbon

Xuefang Wu & Roy M. Harrison
Organic aerosol is known to be a major component of fine aerosols in China. This study was designed to investigate the seasonal characteristics and source apportionment of organic aerosols during both clean days and haze events. Time-resolved concentrations of carbonaceous aerosols and organic molecular tracers were measured at Pinggu, a rural site of Beijing during the winter of 2016 and summer 2017 within an intensive sampling campaign. The Chemical Mass Balance (CMB) receptor model was...
