Pan-european, physically consistent simulations from groundwater to the atmosphere with the Terrestrial Systems Modeling Platform, TerrSysMP (1989-2018 daily time-series)

Carina Furusho, Klaus Goergen, Jessica Keune, Ketan Kulkarni & Stefan Kollet
Applying the Terrestrial Systems Modeling Platform, TerrSysMP, this study provides the first simulated long-term (1989-2018), high-resolution (~12.5km) terrestrial system climatology over Europe, which comprises variables from groundwater across the land surface to the top of the atmosphere (G2A). The data set offers an unprecedented opportunity to test hypotheses related to short- and long-range feedback processes in space and time between the different interacting compartments of the terrestrial system. The physical consistency of simulated states and...

Collated bathymetric data from convergent margins that experienced tsunami earthquakes, supplement to: Geersen, Jacob (2019): Sediment-starved trenches and rough subducting plates are conducive to tsunami earthquakes. Tectonophysics, 762, 28-44

Jacob Geersen
For each tsunami earthquake region, ship-based bathymetric data have been collated from German (http://www.bsh.de), French (http://en.data.ifremer.fr), Japanese (http://www.godac.jamstec.go.jp/darwin/e) and US (http://www.rvdata.us) research cruises as well as the compilation of data provided by the Global Multi-Resolution Topography (GMRT) synthesis (https://www.gmrt.org). The ship-based bathymetric soundings were quality checked and manually edited if necessary. The collated data is displayed on top of the SRTM15+ grid (https://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/srtm). For the New Zealand margin the collated data is displayed on top...

Georgios Kazanidis, Johanne Vad, Lea-Anne Henry, Francis Neat, Barbara Berx, Konstantinos Georgoulas & J Murray Roberts
In this data set, we provide environmental (coordinates, depth, temperature, salinity, type of substrate, demersal fisheries) and biological data (sponge morphotype density and sponge morphotype size) from seabed images collected using a towed camera in the sponge belt located in the Faroe-Shetland Channel Nature Conservation Marine Protected Area.

Ingested microplastics identified from macrobenthos collected during the RRS Discovery D340b Research Cruise to the Mingulay Reef Complex (Outer Hebrides, western Scotland, northeast Atlantic), supplement to: La Beur, Laura; Henry, Lea-Anne; Kazanidis, Georgios; Hennige, Sebastian; McDonald, Alison; Shaver, Michael; Roberts, Murray J (2019): Baseline assessment of marine litter and microplastic ingestion by cold-water coral reef benthos at the East Mingulay Marine Protected Area (Sea of the Hebrides, western Scotland). Frontiers in Marine Science

Laura La Beur, Lea-Anne Henry, Georgios Kazanidis, Sebastian Hennige, Alison McDonald, Michael Shaver & J Murray Roberts
Analyzing historic cruise data for microplastics is an effective way to create baseline level understanding of microplastic pollution through time. This study analyzed 112 benthic specimens gut contents for ingestion of microplastics. These specimens were collected as part of a research cruise on the RRS Discovery D340b from 26 June to 4 July 2009 as part of the Oceans 2025 programme, the cruise Chief Scientist being Mark Inall. Out of the 112 specimens dissected, only...

Species Richness and Taxonomic effort on the study of Octocorallia of the Azores, supplement to: Sampaio, Íris; Freiwald, André; Porteiro, Filipe; Menezes, Gui; Carreiro-Silva, Marina (2019): Census of Octocorallia (Cnidaria: Anthozoa) of the Azores (NE Atlantic) with a nomenclature update. Zootaxa, 4550(4), 451

Íris Sampaio, André Freiwald, Filipe Porteiro, Gui Menezes & Marina Carreiro-Silva
Knowledge on Azorean octocorals is still dispersed in several taxonomical papers and monographs. Moreover it is hard to find and written in different languages representing a challenge for zoological nomenclature and taxonomic studies. Taxonomic literature about octocorals (orders Alcyonacea and Pennatulacea) inhabiting the Azores marine waters was compiled from the 19th century onwards. Papers and monographs were analysed in order to calculate the taxonomic effort applied to different ranks of Octocorallia in the region. Moreover,...

Monthly actual evapotranspiration satellite data with SWAT and SWAT-CUP format

Karim Abbaspour, Saeid Ashraf Vaghefi, Anthony Lehmann & Raghavan Srinivasan
Actual Evapotranspiration (AET) consists of evaporation from rainwater intercepted by the canopy before it reaches the ground, from wet and moist soil, and the transpiration through stomata on plant stems and leaves. Evapotranspiration claimed 61% of all rainwater that falls on land. Using the satellite remote sensing data, evapotranspiration from earth land surface have been collected by NASA. Zhang, Kimball et al. (2009) spatially aggregated the global 8-km NASA dataset and published the global monthly...

CRU and GCM data for SWAT model

Karim Abbaspour & Saeid Ashraf Vaghefi
Historical reanalysis climate data (TMAX, TMIN, PCP) at 0.5o resolution from Climate Research Unit East Anglia (CRU TS 3.1) is reformatted for use in SWAT models. The daily data covers the period of (1970-2005). This data can serve as observed data in regions where observed data is sparse or not available. For future data, we used the ISI-MIP data (Hempel et al., 2013, doi:10.5194/esd-4-219-2013). These were created using five GCM archives as input: HadGEM2-ES, IPSL-CM5A-LR,...

Fruit weight of coffee beans from an pollinator/vertebrate-exclosure experiment conducted in three different land use types at Mount Kilimanjaro, supplement to: Classen, Alice; Peters, Marcell Karl; Ferger, Stefan; Helbig-Bonitz, Maria; Schmack, Julia; Maassen, G; Schleuning, Matthias; Kalko, E K; Böhning-Gaese, Katrin; Steffan-Dewenter, Ingolf (2014): Complementary ecosystem services provided by pest predators and pollinators increase quantity and quality of coffee yields. Proceedings of the Royal Society B-Biological Sciences, 281(1779), 20133148-20133148

Wild animals substantially support crop production by providing ecosystem services, such as pollination and natural pest control. However, the strengths of synergies between ecosystem services and their dependencies on land-use management are largely unknown. Here, we took an experimental approach to test the impact of land-use intensification on both individual and combined pollination and pest control services in coffee production systems at Mount Kilimanjaro. We established a full-factorial pollinator and vertebrate exclosure experiment along a...

Historical records of plasticity in coralline algae

Leanne Melbourne, Juliet Brodie, Emily J Rayfield & Daniela N Schmidt
In the shallow marine environment, a small number of habitat-forming skeletal organisms provide shelter and nursery grounds for other species. Free-living coralline algae (rhodoliths) build a complex three-dimensional skeleton and in large numbers form maerl beds which are biodiversity hotspots. Experiments suggest that coralline algae will be impacted by climate change. Here we assess phenotypic plasticity within cellular structure, growth rate and elemental composition of four species of coralline algae from the north and south...

Recent global cropland water consumption constrained by observations

Yongzhe Chen
Under current global warming and accelerated population growth scenarios, cropland irrigation water consumption has become a central issue limiting the sustainability of coupled human‐natural systems. This study proposes a new estimate of recent global cropland water consumption constrained by observations and provides attributions for its recent trend. By incorporating observations, including extracted cropland leaf area index (LAI) and irrigation threshold data, this study provides improved estimates of recent global cropland evapotranspiration and transpiration as well...

Paleoceanographic changes across the Latest Danian Event in the South Atlantic Ocean and planktic foraminiferal response, supplement to: Jehle, Sofie; Bornemann, André; Lägel, Anna Friederike; Deprez, Arne; Speijer, Robert P (in review): Paleoceanographic changes across the Latest Danian Event in the South Atlantic Ocean and planktic foraminiferal response.

Sofie Jehle, André Bornemann, Anna Friederike Lägel, Arne Deprez & Robert P Speijer
A number of short warming events occurred during Paleocene and Eocene, of which the "Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum" (PETM, 56 Ma) is the most severe and most investigated event. The less known "Latest Danian Event" (LDE) at 62.2 Ma represents a 200 ky-lasting warming phase, superimposed on a long-term cooling trend after the Early Paleocene. South Atlantic ODP Site 1262 data, covering ~1 myr, indicate a warming of the entire water column by 1.5-2.6°C, accompanying a...
