Data for: New spectroscopic method for true color determination in natural water with high agreement with visual methods”
Contributors: Mikhail Zobkov
... The program is dedicated to true water color (TWC) calculation by light absorption in visual range from 390 up to 830 nm. Calculation is based on mathematical model of color perception by standard observer using spectral data, contained in text files. It allows: 1 – To load standard solutions and samples spectra with spectrum conversion into absorption when required; 2 – To save and upload calculation of graduation curve and graduation data; 3 – To calculate true water color and export data to Microsoft (MS) Excel table; Surce code and data examples are also attached.

... This dataset includes data relevant to a research project investigating the cause of surface expression in a section of the Midway Sunset Oil Field. The data includes earth models of the Midway Sunset Oil Field (well data, core data, surfaces, property models), a presentation on this topic, and surface expression data. The surface expression excel sheet provides the presence/absence of surface expressions in relation to other parameters (such as concentration of plugged wells, seal thickness, etc.).
Utilizing Indicator Kriging to Identify Suitable Zones for Manual Drilling in Weathered Crystalline Basement Aquifers
Contributors: Philip Deal
... Manual drilling offers a practical and affordable method of increasing access to groundwater supply in regions struggling with economic water scarcity. However, manual techniques are limited to specific hydrogeological contexts and must be sited appropriately. Indicator kriging is proposed as an interpolation method that builds upon previous efforts to identify suitable zones for manual drilling, particularly in weathered crystalline basement aquifers. This approach allows for heterogeneity within weathering profiles and provides probability mapping of success for regional planning. Modeling was conducted in the Upper East Region of Ghana using available borehole-log data, including: transmissivity, static water depth, laterite thickness, depth to hard rock, water quality parameters, and the degree of weathering. Indicator kriging interpolations predicted binary variables with over 90% accuracy. The model predicts that drilling into highly weathered layers will be common, and percussion techniques will be necessary to reach sufficient depths. The results suggest that suitable zones occur near Bolgatanga, Bawku, and Zebila, which coincide with historical drilling efforts in the central and eastern portions of the region. The original dataset was derived from the Hydrogeological Assessment of the Northern Regions of Ghana Project (HAP) implemented by SNC-Lavalin, Institut national de Recherche Scientifique (INRS) and the Water Resources Comission (WRC) of Ghana, and was supported by the Canadian International Development Agency. Hydrogeological data was collected and aggregated for the Voltaian Sedimentary Basin and Precambrian Basement complexes in Ghana from numerous sources. The data was compiled into a GIS databased for further study and analysis of the groundwater resources in Ghana. For this study, the dataset was obtained from the University of Ghana upon request with a focus on manual drilling feasibility. Borehole records were manipulated with various interpolation methods within the Upper East Region in ArcGIS, as described within the journal article.

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.
