Abstract: Benthic suspension feeders have developed a variety of feeding strategies and food availability has often proven to be a key factor explaining their occurrence and distribution. The feeding biology of coral species has been the target of an increasing number of studies, however most of them focus on Scleractinia and Octocorallia, while information for Antipatharia is very scarce. The present study focused on Antipathella wollastoni, a common habitat-forming antipatharian in the Azores Archipelago, forming dense black coral forests between 20 and 150 meters. The objective of the study was to investigate the food preferences of the target species upon availability of different isotopically enriched food substrates and determine its ability to capture zooplankton prey under different flow speeds. The species was able to utilize different food sources including live phytoplankton, live zooplankton and Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM), indicating the ability to exploit seasonally available food sources. However ingestion of zooplankton enhanced Carbon (C) and Nitrogen (N) incorporation in coral tissue and metabolic activity, highlighting the importance of zooplankton prey for vital physiological processes such as growth and reproduction. The species displayed a high capacity to capture zooplankton prey over different flow rates, however capture rates were higher under 4 cm s-1, highlighting the ability of A. wollastoni to exploit high quantities of shortly available prey.

Abstract: This dataset provides a static extent of salt pans and salt playas (a total area of ~10 thousand km²) across the arid/semiarid western United States (US). The considered region (an area of ~700 thousand km²), also given in this dataset, includes the endorheic (i.e., hydrologically landlocked) areas in the Great Basin, the Mojave Desert, the north part of the Chihuahua Desert, and other sporadic endorheic basins in the western US, with a small fraction extending to northern Mexico (see Figure 2 in Safaee and Wang (2020) for the area boundary). The salt pan/playa extents were mapped using a calibrated support vector machine (SVM) from the 30-m-resolution multispectral Landsat-8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) images that were acquired in June during 2013 to 2015. The mapping result may represent the maximum salt pan/playa condition during this three-year period. In addition, this dataset also provides the OLI-based training pool that was used by the SVM to perform the binary classification between salt-covered surface and others (soil and barren land). This training pool was generated using a stratified sampling method which randomly selected an equal number of pixels from each of the eight training sites worldwide, for both salt and non-salt regions. A total of 8000 sampling points (4000 for salt and 4000 for non-salt) are included in the sample pool. Refer to Safaee and Wang (2020) for more technical details.

Abstract: These data report surface mass balance (SMB) stake measurements at the frontal part of Gourdon Glacier on James Ross Island, northern Antarctic Peninsula. The measurements were conducted by drilling stakes made of bamboo or aluminium into the ice. Changes in the height above the glacier surface were measured in yearly field campaigns during January/February from 2014 until 2017. The resulting height differences in meter ice equivalents [SMB (m i.e.)] are presented together with the coordinates [Latitude Start (°)], [Longitude Start (°)], [Latitude End (°)], [Longitude End (°)] and the elevation in regard to the WGS84 ellipsoid [Altitude Start (m)] and [Altitude End (m)] for the start and the end date of each measurement period. GNSS measurements were done with a single-frequency hand-held Garmin GPS 60. The mass balance measurements were not corrected for movement within one yearly measurement period.

Abstract: The database is an array of minute resolution observations over the rainfall of weather stations of the Urals (Russia). The database contains observational data on pluviographs at 79 meteorological stations located in the regions of the Russian Federation: Sverdlovsk region; Perm Territory; Chelyabinsk region; Kurgan region. The period for which the data is placed is from 1936 to 2015. Category: geoscientificInformation Source: Not Available Supplemental Information: Not Availble Coverage: Not Available

Abstract: Data presented here were collected between April 2017 to December 2018 within the BEFmate project (Biodiversity - Ecosystem Functioning across marine and terrestrial ecosystems, https://uol.de/icbm/verbundprojekte/abgeschlossene-projekte/befmate/ ) of the Universities of Oldenburg and Göttingen and the Nationalpark Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer. Experimental islands and saltmarsh enclosed plots were created in the back barrier tidal flat and in the saltmarsh zone of the island of Spiekeroog. Local tide and wave conditions were recorded with a RBRduo TDǀwave sensor (RBR Ltd., Ontario/Canada). The sensor was bottom mounted in a shallow tidal creek (0.71 / 0.78 m NHN) through a steel girder (buried 0.3m deep in the sediment) and was positioned 10 cm above sediment surface, as was determined by using a portable differential GPS. This resulted in the sensor falling dry during low tide. For accurate depth calculations, raw pressure data were manually corrected for atmospheric pressure derived from a locally installed weather station. The sensor was pre-calibrated by the manufacturer and the sampling rate was 3 Hz with 1024 samples per burst at a sample interval of 10 min. Recorded data were internally logged until the readout with the Ruskin (V1.13.13) software. Date and time is given in UTC. Data handling was performed according to Zielinski et al. (2018): Post-processing of collected data was done using MATLAB (R2018a). Quality control was performed by (a) erasing data covering maintenance activities, (b) removing outliers, and (c) visually checks. Low-tide data is not removed, but were easily identified through the manually calculated water depth data, where all depths < 0.05m represented low tide data.
