Supplementary data, code, and information for ‘Atlantic Hurricane Trends linked to Climate Change’ (Mann et al. 2006)

M.E. Mann & K. Emanuel
Increases in key measures of Atlantic hurricane activity over recent decades are believed to reflect, in large part, contemporaneous increases in tropical Atlantic warmth [e.g., Emanuel, 2005]. Some recent studies [e.g., Goldenberg et al., 2001] have attributed these increases to a natural climate cycle termed the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), while other studies suggest that climate change may instead be playing the dominant role [Emanuel, 2005; Webster et al., 2005]. Using a formal statistical analysis...

Supplementary data and code for ‘Oscillatory Spatiotemporal Signal Detection in Climate Studies: A Multiple-Taper Spectral Domain Approach’ (Mann and Park 1999)

M.E. Mann & J. Park
This chapter introduces a methodology for signal detection and reconstruction of irregular spatiotemporal oscillatory signals—the multiple-taper spectrum estimation method (MTM)–singular-value decomposition (SVD) methodology. This methodology is offered as an alternative technique which avoids most of the problems encountered in traditional techniques and provides an efficient exploratory method for climate signal detection. The associated signal-detection parameter—the local fractional variance spectrum (LFV) spectrum—yields the correct null distribution for a very general class of spatiotemporal climate noise processes...

Modeled dataset for the estimation of atmospheric transport errors using a Multi-Physics and Analysis Ensemble on the Midwest US

L.I. Diaz-Isaac, T. Lauvaux & K.J. Davis
Atmospheric inversions are used to assess biosphere-atmosphere CO2 surface exchanges. However, large uncertainties exist among inverse flux estimates independent of the spatial scales. Atmospheric transport model errors are one of the main contributors to the uncertainty affecting CO2 inverse flux estimates but have not been quantified thoroughly. The model dataset archived here were used to evaluate atmospheric transport errors over the US upper Midwest with an ensemble of simulations created with the Weather Research and...

One-way nested (27km, 9km and 3km) model output of North American atmospheric CO2 simulation (full WRF-chem output)

A. Samaddar, S. Feng, T. Lauvaux, Z.R. Barkley, S. Pal & K.J. Davis
Synoptic weather systems are a major driver of spatial gradients in atmospheric CO2 mole fractions. During frontal passages air masses from different regions meet at the frontal boundary creating significant gradients in CO2 mole fractions. This study quantitatively describes the atmospheric transport of CO2 mole fractions during a mid-latitude cold front passage and explores the impact of various sources of CO2. We focus here on a cold front passage over Lincoln, Nebraska on August 4th,...

Implications of electron detachment in associative collisions of atomic oxygen anion with molecular nitrogen for modeling of transient luminous events

R. Janalizadeh & V.P. Pasko
Electron detachment from negative ion of atomic oxygen, O-, is important for understanding of lightning-induced upper atmospheric discharges. Contrary to previous studies, Rayment and Moruzzi [1978] argue that the associative detachment reaction of O- with molecular nitrogen, N2, proceeds with N2 in its ground state, and calculate the reaction rate coefficient as a function of the reduced electric field. In this work we analyze the experimental setup in [Rayment and Moruzzi, 1978] and demonstrate that...

Dataset of Constraining fossil fuel CO2 emissions from urban area using OCO-2 observations of total column CO2

X. Ye, T. Lauvaux, E.A. Kort, T. Oda, S. Feng, J.C. Lin, E.G. Yang & D. Wu
Satellite observations of the total column dry-air CO2 (XCO2) are expected to support the quantification and monitoring of fossil fuel CO2 (ffCO2) emissions from urban areas. We evaluate the utility of the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2 (OCO-2) XCO2 retrievals to optimize whole-city emissions, using a Bayesian inversion system and high-resolution transport modeling. The uncertainties of constrained emissions related to transport model, satellite measurements, and local biospheric fluxes are quantified. For the first two uncertainty sources,...

Coral accurately bridges paired-end reads alignment

Q. Shi & M. Shao
Motivation: The established high-throughput RNA-seq technologies usually produce paired-end reads. A challenging problem is therefore to computationally infer the alignment of entire fragments given the alignment of the two mate ends. Solving this problem essentially provide longer RNA-seq reads, and hence benefits downstream RNA-seq analysis. Results: We introduce Coral, a new tool that can accurately bridge paired-end RNA-seq reads. The core of Coral is a novel optimization formulation that can capture the most reliable bridging...

Ensemble model output of North American atmospheric CO2 simulation (full WRF-chem output)

S. Feng, T. Lauvaux, K.J. Davis, K. Keller, R. Rayner, T. Oda, K. Gurney, Y. Zhou, C. Williams, A.E. Schuh, J. Liu & I. Baker
The uncertainty in biospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) flux estimates drives divergent projections of future climate and uncertainty in prescriptions for climate mitigation. The terrestrial carbon sink can be inferred from atmospheric CO2 observations with transport models via inversion methods. Regional CO2 flux estimates remain uncertain due to the mixture of uncertainties caused by transport models, prior estimates of biospheric fluxes, large-scale CO2 boundary inflow, the assumptions in the inversion process, and the limited density of...

A. Wang, Y. Pan & P. Markowski
This dataset contains the numerical simulations used in the Wang et al. (2021) study of WENO schemes in an idealized atmospheric boundary layer. That work explores the influence of Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory (WENO) schemes on Cloud Model 1 (CM1) large-eddy simulation (LES) of a quasi-steady, horizontally homogeneous, fully developed atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). An advantage of applying WENO schemes to scalar advection is the elimination of acoustic-wave propagation generated by solving the compressible fluid equations...

Mine maps are extremely useful resources for determining regional and local hydrogeologic conditions as well as mineral resources and reserves. Users include mining companies, property owners concerned about risk factors related to mining activities, government inspectors, engineers and planners. Hundreds of thousands of mine maps exist yet how many are collected or cataloged by libraries or archives? This paper examines the characteristics of mine maps, how they are published, their value, and describes some efforts...

Identification of Somatic Structural Variants in Solid Tumors by Optical Genome Mapping

D.Y. Goldrich, B. LaBarge, S. Chartrand, L. Zhang, S.B. Sadowski, Y. Zhang, K. Pham, H. Way, C. Lai, A.W.C. Pang, B. Clifford, A.R. Hastie, M. Oldakowski, D. Goldenberg & J. Broach
Genomic structural variants comprise a significant fraction of somatic mutations driving cancer onset and progression. However, such variants are not readily revealed by standard next-generation sequencing. Optical genome mapping (OGM) surpasses short-read sequencing in detecting large (>500 bp) and complex structural variants (SVs) but requires isolation of ultra-high-molecular-weight DNA from the tissue of interest. We have successfully applied a protocol involving a paramagnetic nanobind disc to a wide range of solid tumors. Using as little...

L.E. Dennis, S.J. Richardson, N.L. Miles, J. Woda & K.J. Davis
We quantified atmospheric methane emissions from a subsurface source in the vicinity of a shale gas well that was cited for casing and cementing issues. We measured the magnitude and spatial and temporal variability of emissions in a farm field where patches of dead vegetation and methane bubbling from a nearby stream were observed. The methane emissions were quantified using an eddy covariance flux tower, chamber flux measurements, and a survey of near-surface methane mole...

Nitrous oxide emissions in a landscape transitioning from Conservation Reserve Program grassland to energy crops switchgrass and Miscanthus

A.R. Kemanian, D. Shaha, B.M. Rau, J.P. Kaye, F.R. Montes & P.R. Adler
uture liquid fuel demand from renewable sources may, in part, be met by converting the seasonally wet portions of the landscape currently managed for soil and water conservation to perennial energy crops. However, this shift may increase nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, thus limiting the carbon (C) benefits of energy crops. Particularly high emissions may occur during the transition period when the soil is disturbed, plants are establishing, and nitrate and water accumulation may favor emissions....
