Dead Sea lake level for the last 260 ka, supplement to: Waldmann, Nicolas; Torfstein, Adi; Stein, Mordechai (2010): Northward intrusions of low- and mid-latitude storms across the Saharo-Arabian belt during past interglacials. Geology, 38(6), 567-570

Nicolas Waldmann, Adi Torfstein & Mordechai Stein
The rain regime of the Levant during the late Quaternary was controlled primarily by Mediterranean cyclonic systems associated with North Atlantic climate shifts. Lake levels in the Dead Sea basin have been robust recorders of the regional hydrology and generally indicate highstand (wet) conditions throughout glacial intervals and lowstands (dry) during interglacials. However, sporadic deposition of travertines and speleothems occurred in the Negev Desert and Arava Valley during past interglacials, suggesting intrusions of humidity from...

Dead Sea lake level for the last 140 ka, supplement to: Waldmann, Nicolas; Stein, Mordechai; Ariztegui, Daniel; Starinsky, A (2009): Stratigraphy, depositional environments and level reconstruction of the last interglacial Lake Samra in the Dead Sea basin. Quaternary Research, 72(1), 1-15

Nicolas Waldmann, Manfred Stein, Daniel Ariztegui & A Starinsky
In this paper we describe the stratigraphy and sediments deposited in Lake Samra that occupied the Dead Sea basin between ~135 and 75 ka. This information is combined with U/Th dating of primary aragonites in order to estimate a relative lake-level curve that serves as a regional paleohydrological monitor. The lake stood at an elevation of ~340 m below mean sea level (MSL) during most of the last interglacial. This level is relatively higher than...

(Table 3) Liver weight, blood liver parameters, and blood plasma PCB concentrations in 14 sledge dog bitches and their 14 pups in Aasiaat, west Greenland, supplement to: Sonne, Christian; Leifsson, Pall S; Dietz, Rune; Kirkegaard, Maja; Jensen, A; Shahmiri, Soheila; Letcher, Robert J (2008): Greenland sledge dogs (Canis familiaris) develop liver lesions when exposed to a chronic and dietary low dose of an environmental organohalogen cocktail. Environmental Research, 106(1), 72-80

Christian Sonne, Pall S Leifsson, Rune Dietz, Maja Kirkegaard, A Jensen, Soheila Shahmiri & Robert J Letcher
We assessed the relationship between exposure to organohalogen polluted minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) blubber and liver morphology and function in a generational controlled study of 28 Greenland sledge dogs (Canis familiaris). The prevalence of portal fibrosis, mild bile duct hyperplasia, and vascular leukocyte infiltrations was significantly higher in the exposed group (all Chi-square: p<0.05). In case of granulomas, the frequency was significantly highest in the bitches (P generation) while the prevalence of portal fibrosis was...

Seawater carbonate chemistry and photosynthesis of a coccolithophorid in a laboratory experiment, supplement to: Jin, Peng; Gao, Kunshan; Villafañe, Virginia E; Campbell, Douglas A; Helbling, E Walter (2013): Ocean Acidification Alters the Photosynthetic Responses of a Coccolithophorid to Fluctuating Ultraviolet and Visible Radiation. Plant Physiology, 162(4), 2084-2094

Peng Jin, Kunshan Gao, Virginia E Villafañe, Douglas A Campbell & E Walter Helbling
Mixing of seawater subjects phytoplankton to fluctuations in photosynthetically active radiation (400-700 nm) and ultraviolet radiation (UVR; 280-400 nm). These irradiance fluctuations are now superimposed upon ocean acidification and thinning of the upper mixing layer through stratification, which alters mixing regimes. Therefore, we examined the photosynthetic carbon fixation and photochemical performance of a coccolithophore, Gephyrocapsa oceanica, grown under high, future (1,000 µatm) and low, current (390 µatm) CO2 levels, under regimes of fluctuating irradiances with...

Ocean acidification mediates photosynthetic response to UV radiation and temperature increase in the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum, supplement to: Li, Yahe; Gao, Kunshan; Villafañe, Virginia E; Helbling, E Walter (2012): Ocean acidification mediates photosynthetic response to UV radiation and temperature increase in the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum. Biogeosciences, 9(10), 3931-3942

Yahe Li, Kunshan Gao, Virginia E Villafañe & E Walter Helbling
Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration is responsible for progressive ocean acidification, ocean warming as well as decreased thickness of upper mixing layer (UML), thus exposing phytoplankton cells not only to lower pH and higher temperatures but also to higher levels of solar UV radiation. In order to evaluate the combined effects of ocean acidification, UV radiation and temperature, we used the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum as a model organism and examined its physiological performance after grown under...

The record of stable isotope composition of surface and thermocline planktic foraminifera from sediment core 64PE-174P13 for the last 460,000 years, supplement to: Scussolini, Paolo; Peeters, Frank J C (2013): A record of the last 460 thousand years of upper ocean stratification from the central Walvis Ridge, South Atlantic. Paleoceanography, 28(3), 426-439

Paolo Scussolini & Frank J C Peeters
The upper branch of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation predominantly enters the Atlantic Ocean through the southeast, where the subtropical gyre is exposed to the influence of the Agulhas leakage (AL). To understand how the transfer of Indian Ocean waters via the AL affected the upper water column of this region, we have generated new proxy records of planktic foraminifera from a core on the central Walvis Ridge, on the eastern flank of the South...

High-resolution ice thickness and bed topography of a land-terminating section of the Greenland Ice Sheet, with links to GeoTIFFs and text files, supplement to: Lindbäck, Katrin; Pettersson, Rickard; Doyle, Samuel H; Helanow, Christian; Jansson, Peter; Kristensen, Steen Savstrup; Stenseng, Lars; Forsberg, René; Hubbard, Alun L (2014): High-resolution ice thickness and bed topography of a land-terminating section of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

(Table 1) Element concentrations in detrital sediments of ODP Site 184-1148, supplement to: Wei, Gangjian; Li, Xian-hua; Liu, Ying; Shao, Lei; Liang, Xirong (2006): Geochemical record of chemical weathering and monsoon climate change since the early Miocene in the South China Sea. Paleoceanography, 21(4), PA4214

Gangjian Wei, Xian-hua Li, Ying Liu, Lei Shao & Xirong Liang
The chemical index of alteration (CIA) and elemental ratios that are sensitive to chemical weathering, such as Ca/Ti, Na/Ti, Al/Ti, Al/Na, Al/K, and La/Sm, were analyzed for detrital sediments at Ocean Drilling Program Site 1148 from the northern South China Sea to reveal information of chemical weathering in the source regions during the early Miocene. High CIA values of ~80, coupled with high Al/Ti and Al/Na and low Na/Ti and Ca/Ti, are observed for the...

Inventory of thermo-erosional valleys and streams in three ice-rich permafrost lowlands adjacent to the Laptev Sea, with links to maps in ArcGIS format

Anne Morgenstern, Guido Grosse, David Rico Arcos, Frank Günther, Pier Paul Overduin, Mikhail N Grigoriev, Mathias Ulrich, Roland Spröte & Alexander Sandakov
This dataset provides an inventory of thermo-erosional landforms and streams in three lowland areas underlain by ice-rich permafrost of the Yedoma-type Ice Complex at the Siberian Laptev Sea coast. It consists of two shapefiles per study region: one shapefile for the digitized thermo-erosional landforms and streams, one for the study area extent. Thermo-erosional landforms were manually digitized from topographic maps and satellite data as line features and subsequently analyzed in a Geographic Information System (GIS)...

Offspring sensitivity to ocean acidification changes seasonally in a coastal marine fish, supplement to: Murray, Christopher S; Malvezzi, Alex; Gobler, Christopher J; Baumann, Hannes (2014): Offspring sensitivity to ocean acidification changes seasonally in a coastal marine fish. Marine Ecology Progress Series, 504, 1-11

Christopher S Murray, Alex Malvezzi, Christopher J Gobler & Hannes Baumann
Experimental assessments of species vulnerabilities to ocean acidification are rapidly increasing in number, yet the potential for short- and long-term adaptation to high CO2 by contemporary marine organisms remains poorly understood. We used a novel experimental approach that combined bi-weekly sampling of a wild, spawning fish population (Atlantic silverside Menidia menidia) with standardized offspring CO2 exposure experiments and parallel pH monitoring of a coastal ecosystem. We assessed whether offspring produced at different times of the...

Experiment: Elevated temperature and PCO2 affect enzyme activities in differentially oxidative tissues of Notothenia rossii, supplement to: Strobel, Anneli; Leo, Elettra; Pörtner, Hans-Otto; Mark, Felix Christopher (2013): Elevated temperature and PCO2 shift metabolic pathways in differentially oxidative tissues of Notothenia rossii. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part B: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, 166(1), 48-57

Mitochondrial plasticity plays a central role in setting the capacity for acclimation of aerobic metabolism in ectotherms in response to environmental changes. We still lack a clear picture if and to what extent the energy metabolism and mitochondrial enzymes of Antarctic fish can compensate for changing temperatures or PCO2 and whether capacities for compensation differ between tissues. We therefore measured activities of key mitochondrial enzymes (citrate synthase (CS), cytochrome c oxidase (COX)) from heart, red...

In order to allow full comparability with other ocean acidification data sets, the R package seacarb (Lavigne and Gattuso, 2011) was used to compute a complete and consistent set of carbonate system variables, as described by Nisumaa et al. (2010). In this dataset the original values were archived in addition with the recalculated parameters (see related PI). The date of carbonate chemistry calculation by seacarb is 2014-03-24.
