... Code and data used in the publication “Spatial prediction of mineral nitrogen on arable fields using random forest: a comparative study”. The numerical input data includes measured nitrate nitrogen (N-NO3) and ammonium nitrogen (N-NH4) values expressed in mg/dm^3 for wheat and rape fields in three depths (30, 60 and 90 cm). Vector data with fields boundaries and measuring point locations are included. The raster data includes Digital Terrain Model and multispectral images from Sentinel-2. The explanatory variables were processed in the attached scripts in the R language. The results of the analysis are fully reproducible (specific randomness seeds were used). The data was obtained under a grant "POIR 04.01.02-00-0110/17-00" financed by The National Centre for Research and Development in Poland.
Reshaping commensal gut microbiota in early life with amoxicillin presents with lower blood pressure
Contributors: Saroj Chakraborty
... Pediatric hypertension is recognized as an emerging global health concern. While new guidelines are developed for facilitating clinical management, the reasons for the prevalence of hypertension in children remain unknown. Genetics and environmental factors do not fully account for the growing incidence of pediatric hypertension. Because stable bacterial flora in early life are linked with health outcomes later in life, we hypothesized that reshaping of gut microbiota in early developmental stages of life affects blood pressure (BP) of pediatric subjects. To test this hypothesis, we administered amoxicillin, the most commonly prescribed pediatric antibiotic, to alter gut microbiota of young, genetically hypertensive rats (study 1) and dams during gestation and lactation to reshape microbiota of offspring (study 2). Reshaping of microbiota, with reductions in Firmicutes/Bacteriodetes ratio observed in Amoxicillin treated young rats and in dams. Amoxicillin treated rats also had lower blood pressure compared to the untreated rats. In the young rats treated with amoxicillin, the lowering effect on blood pressure persisted even after the antibiotics were discontinued. Similarly, the offspring from the dams treated with amoxicillin also showed lower systolic blood pressure compared to the control rats. Remarkably, in all cases, a decrease in BP was associated with lowering of Veillonellaceae, which are succinate-producing bacteria. Elevated plasma succinate is reported in hypertension. Accordingly, serum succinate was measured and found lower in animals treated with amoxicillin. Our results demonstrate a direct correlation between succinate-producing gut microbiota and early development of hypertension, and indicate that reshaping gut microbiota, especially by depleting succinate-producing microbiota early in life may have long-term benefits for hypertension-prone individuals.

... This project is one of the academic projects given to us in the Geographic Information System (GIS) Course. Created by: Pranav Pandya (Me) and Kartikey Hadiya We sampled information for pollution emission in Delhi, India. Pollution data was obtained from https://data.gov.in/resources/real-time-air-quality-index-various-locations Pollution index data can be obtained from https://cpcb.nic.in/RealTimeAirQualityData.php Pollution data only had address of Indian Meteorological Department, so each station was located in Google Earth and pin points were added at each station. Then in the sidebar containing those pins on right-click, a new folder was added and all the pins were added in that new folder in google earth. Then that folder was saved as kml file. This kml file was uploaded to Mygeodata: https://mygeodata.cloud/converter/kml-to-csv and was converted into csv. Then the csv file was opened and coordinates were copied in the pollution data file. That file was later saved as CSV and imported in ArcGIS and xy data was displayed. Shapefile was obtained from web search, which is attached as well. That shapefile was imported in ArcGIS and the final view was generated which is shown in the picture.

Surface soil hydraulic and physical properties measured in establishing native woodland and grazed pasture plots in Dartmoor National Park, southwest England.
Contributors: Thomas Murphy
... Data collected during late summer, autumn and winter 2018 and spring 2019. Available are measurements of hydrological (Ksat, initial infiltration, wetness threshold and soil moisture ) and physical (surface compaction, bulk density, soil organic matter, macroporosity and small stone fraction) soil properties in native woodland and pasture plots across the four study sites. Also included are pictures taken during accompanying soil assessments.

... Maps of clay, silt and sand contents (g kg-1) were predicted at 0-20 cm, 20-60 cm and 60-100 cm depths intervals by random forest regression in Google Earth Engine. Gridded soil information covers a part of the Midwest Brazil, from 12° S to 20° S and from 45° W to 54° W, and is available with 250m resolution. The maps were cross-validated and had Coefficient of Determination ranging from 0.64 to 0.85 at all depth intervals.
