... Article Title: Morphological variation and asymmetrical development in the skull of Styracosaurus albertensis Authors: Robert Holmes (1), Walter Persons (1), Baltej Singh Rupal (2), Ahmed Jawad Qureshi (2), Philip Currie (1) Affiliation: (1) Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 2E3 Canada (2) Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta, T6G 1H9, Canada Corresponding Author: Dr. Robert Holmes (firstname.lastname@example.org) Journal: Cretaceous Research (Elsevier) Abstract: The ceratopsid Styracosaurus albertensis is an important component of the herbivorous dinosaur fauna preserved in the Campanian-aged Dinosaur Park Formation in Alberta, Canada. A new skull exhibits previously unobserved variability and asymmetry in this species. As in the type, the right lateral parietal bar bears seven epiossifications, but the left parietal bar has eight. Epiossifications p3‒p6 are asymmetrical with respect to size, orientation, and position relative to the midline. A re-evaluation of variation in Styracosaurus that includes this skull expands the morphological range of the taxon to incorporate Rubeosaurus ovatus, requiring the synonymy of the latter with the former. Unlike the type, both p1 and p2 epiossifications are large. Epiossification p1 is procurved, and p2 is medially curved. These features converge on the morphology considered diagnostic for Centrosaurus. This observation, in combination with their sequential stratigraphic relationship and geographic overlap might suggest that Centrosaurus and Styracosaurus form an anagenic series, but the stratigraphic placement of skulls exhibiting putative ‘transitional’ morphologies does not support this hypothesis.

... This dataset contains MATLAB source code (eGLCM.m) for the excess Gibbs energy model describing the properties of aqueous electrolyte solutions, mixed solvent electrolyte systems and nonelectrolyte systems, electrolyte version of the Generalized Local Composition Model (eGLCM). It also contains input files for TernAPI program, designed for ternary phase diagrams calculation by means of the convex hull method (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fluid.2014.12.028, https://td.chem.msu.ru/en/developments/ternapi/). This files allow to reproduce assessed phase diagrams of the H2O – HNO3 – REE(NO3)3 systems (REE = Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd).

... In this paper, a new, alternative, multi-scale, multi-pollution source waste load allocation (WLA) system was developed, with a goal to produce optimal, fair quota allocations at multiple scales. The new WLA system integrates multi-constrained environmental Gini coefficients (EGCs) and Delphi-analytic hierarchy process (Delphi-AHP) optimization models to achieve the stated goal. This dataset consists of the raw data and the source code of models (The multi-constrained environmental Gini coefficients and Delphi-analytic hierarchy process optimization models). The source code of the multi-constrained EGCs and Delphi-AHP models was used to run the program in MATLAB environment to allocate waste load reduction quotas at both the regional scale and the site-specific scale with multiple pollution sources. The raw data mainly consists of the following two parts: (1) The shp files of various geographic information data, which was used to depicture the administrative divisions, pollution source distribution, geographical characteristics and patterns of Xian-jiang watershed; (2) The basic data includes the statistical yearbook data of villages and towns in Ningbo city, the various indicator data using to calculate the weights at criteria level and decision-making level, the contribution coefficients, and the EGC values of the three pollutants. On the basis of these data, a new, alternative, multi-scale, multi-sector optimal WLA framework was developed. The new scheme provides decision-makers critical information (i.e., the best compromise solutions of WLA) and practical guidance as they address the related water pollution control. The results, in comparison with existing practices by the local governments, suggested that the pollution discharge quota at regional scale is much fairer than the existing WLA and, even have some environmental economic benefits at pollutant source scale after optimal WLA. Some important conclusions had been found: 1) Reductions and proportions of pollutants at regional scale are significantly associated with the region’s actual socioeconomic development modes. 2）There are certain characteristics that high-reduced pollution sources tend to share (which are listed in the article). The sources with the above features should be the top priorities in the reduction of removals. 3）Most previous studies reported primarily on the WLA of removals among point sources pollution. Conversely, we found that the industrial pollution source should be the last option for reduction from an environmental-economic benefit perspective. Instead, the often overlooked types, such as agricultural non-point source and domestic sources, deserve more attention, especially in extensive rural areas.

... The findings from the dataset presented here are described in the paper titled "The transition from face dissolution to wormhole formation in a heterogeneous limestone based on the distribution of local dissolution rates" by Apoorv Jyoti and Ralf. R. Haese from the Peter Cook Center for CCS Research at the University of Melbourne. A multicomponent reactive transport model at the pore-scale in combination with a flow-through experiment with intermittent high-resolution imaging of the pore network geometry is used to better understand the formation of dissolution patterns in porous limestone. The 3D images of the pore network were used for reactive-transport simulations to derive the distribution of local dissolution rates. The model was validated through the comparison of experimental and integrated calcite dissolution rates derived from simulations. The image-based change in pore geometry was limited to less than 3 mm from the inflow of acid due to the rapid acid neutralization from calcite dissolution. The dataset consists of three parts: 1) Raw image data from the micro-CT scanner, 2) Chemical analysis of the effluent presented in an excel file, 3) The three reactive transport models at T0, T2, and T4, consisting of the input files for COMSOL and PhreeqC.

... Four influences on decision-making - believing in religion, stereotyping, belonging to a group, and priming - are tested in the laboratory, using an adapted trust game. The experimental design builds on a classic trust game but reveals characteristics of Responders and Proposers in multiple rounds, better aligning with societal interactions where both parties condition actions and reactions on available information. A Cambridge University sample provides unique collegiate affiliation, testing dense secular group belonging.
