Downward Shortwave Irradiance at the Thule High Arctic Atmospheric Observatory during MACMAP (THAAO_DSI_MACMAP)

Daniela Meloni, Alcide Di Sarra, Tatiana Di Iorio, Giandomenico Pace, Giovanni Muscari, Antonio Iaccarino & Filippo Calì Quaglia
Measurements of downward shortwave (SW) and longwave (LW) irradiance are collected by Kipp&Zonen CMP21 pyranometer and CGR4 pyrgeometer, respectively, installed on the roof of building 1971. Both sensors are ventilated to prevent ice formation on their domes. Data are recorded at 1 minute time step. Corrections are applied to measurements in order to take into account the dependance of the radiometers’ sensitivity on temperature and the change in time. The small pyranometer's thermal offset is...

Four approaches leading to the age scale of the Young Island ice core

Dorothea Moser & Elizabeth Thomas
Young Island is a new ice core drilling site uniquely positioned to give insight into the (sub-)Antarctic climate. This dataset contains four preliminary dating approaches that lay the foundation for the age scale of the Young Island ice core presented in Moser et al. (2021). Funding was provided to SubICE by Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, the Swiss Polar Institute, and Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc (grant no. SubICE). ERT received core funding from NERC to the...

Integrated Water Vapor at the Thule High Arctic Atmospheric Observatory (THAAO_IWV)

Giovanni Muscari, Alcide Di Sarra, Tatiana Di Iorio, Daniela Meloni, Giandomenico Pace, Antonio Iaccarino, Filippo Calì Quaglia & Gianpaolo Sensale
Measurements of integrated water vapor (IWV or PWV) at the Thule High Arctic Atmospheric Observatory (THAAO) carried out by means of a microwave spectrometer (VESPA-22) designed and built at the INGV laboratories in Rome. Measurements start in July 2016 and are carried out every 20 to 40 minutes. VESPA-22 measures the sky opacity at 22 GHz by performing a sky scan (or tipping curve) and this observation is then converted into water vapor column contents....

Gridded estimates of daily and monthly areal rainfall for the United Kingdom (1890-2019) [CEH-GEAR]

M. Tanguy, H. Dixon, I. Prosdocimi, D.G. Morris & V.D.J. Keller
1 km gridded estimates of daily and monthly rainfall for Great-Britain and Northern Ireland (together with approximately 3000 km2 of catchment in the Republic of Ireland) from 1890 to 2019. The rainfall estimates are derived from the Met Office national database of observed precipitation. To derive the estimates, monthly and daily (when complete month available) precipitation totals from the UK rain gauge network are used. The natural neighbour interpolation methodology, including a normalisation step based...

Middle Atmospheric Water vapor vertical Profiles at the Thule High Arctic Atmospheric Observatory (THAAO_MAWP)

Giovanni Muscari, Gabriele Mevi, Alcide Di Sarra, Tatiana Di Iorio, Daniela Meloni, Giandomenico Pace, Antonio Iaccarino, Filippo Calì Quaglia & Gianpaolo Sensale
Measurements of middle atmospheric water vapor mixing ratio vertical profiles at the Thule High Arctic Atmospheric Observatory (THAAO) carried out by means of a microwave spectrometer (VESPA-22) designed and built at the INGV laboratories in Rome. Measurements start in July 2016 and are carried out all year round. VESPA-22 measures the water vapor emission line at 22.235 GHz with a spectral passband of 500 MHz and a resolution of 32 kHz. These spectra are saved...

Deforestation: An implication of high rates of unemployed and low-Income household members in rural communities in Kebbi, Nigeria

Matthew Uba
Deforestation has been a major environmental issue in Northern Nigeria and despite several advocacy, yet such practice has continued to endure. A root course factors are unemployment and low-income among households in Northern Nigeria. As a result of low social/financial status of the household, they depend highly on cutting down trees to make fuel wood (firewood) and charcoal (gotten from burnt wood) for the source of energy for their domestic and commercial activities. This was...

Data from: Dryopithecine palaeobiodiversity in the Iberian Miocene revisited on the basis of molar endostructural morphology

Josep Fortuny, Clément Zanolli, Federico Bernardini, Claudio Tuniz & David M. Alba
Extensive fieldwork at Abocador de Can Mata (NE Iberian Peninsula) has uncovered a previously unsuspected diversity of catarrhine primates in the middle Miocene (12.5–11.6 Ma) of Europe. However, the distinction of the great ape genera Pierolapithecus and Anoiapithecus from Dryopithecus—supported by craniodental differences—has been disputed by some authors. Here we revisit the diversity of great apes (dryopithecines) from the Iberian Miocene based on molar 3D endostructural morphology (relative enamel thickness, enamel distribution, and enamel-dentine junction...

Patterns of pollination interactions at community-level are related to the type and quantity of floral resources

Péter Török, Edy Fantinato, Judit Sonkoly, Péter Török & Gabriella Buffa
1. A fundamental question in community ecology is how the quantity of floral resources affects pollinator activity and how this relates to the structure and robustness of pollination networks. The issue has been mainly addressed at species level, while at community level several questions are still open. 2. Using a species-rich semi-natural grassland as model ecosystem, we explored the relationship between community-level quantity of floral resources, the number of flower visits at community-level and descriptors...
