This data accompanies the paper 'Sediment transport mechanisms revealed by quantitative analyses of seafloor morphology: new evidence from multibeam bathymetry of the Israel Exclusive Economic Zone' in by Kanari et al., 2020, Journal of Marine and Petroleum Geology. Please cite any use of this data by referring to the following paper: -------------------------------------------- Kanari M, Tibor G, Hall JK, Ketter T, Lang G, Schattner U, 2020, Sediment transport mechanisms revealed by quantitative analyses of seafloor morphology: New evidence from multibeam bathymetry of the Israel exclusive economic zone, Marine and Petroleum Geology, Vol. 114, 104224, ISSN 0264-8172, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpetgeo.2020.104224. The data contains the following: ---------------------------------- (1) The multibeam bathymetry grid of the Israel EEZ in 200 m resolution. (2) Hill-shaded relief bathymetric map of the Israel EEZ in 25 m resolution (a-clean; b-with depth contours). (3) Derivatives of the bathymetric grid in 25 m resolution: slope, aspect, multibeam backscatter (where available). (4) Vector SHP files (GIS-ready) of the five analyzed morphological units mapped in the study: structural folds, sediment waves, faults , deepwater channels (and their associated overbank deposits), and deepwater fan lobes.

This dataset is part of the research project on internationalization of intrastate armed conflicts funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) according to the research project № 18-314-00006\18. It proceeds from an alternative expanded conceptualization of the phenomenon of internationalized internal conflict which argues that accounting for involvement of external state-based actors into intrastate conflict is insufficient for understanding the complex interplay between various international, transnational and cross-border processes that form multiple reinforcing and counterbalancing links and feedback loops. To this end, we offer re-operationalization of the internationalization phenomenon based on an integrated three-dimensional framework which differentiates between three dimensions of internationalization (interpreted in a broader sense). The horizontal dimension (horizontal escalation) represents varied processes through which the spatial spread of organized violence (often originated on the sub-state level) affects the territory of other (usually neighboring) countries leading to consequences (usually destabilizing) for both the source state and the recipient state. The vertical dimension (vertical escalation) covers the processes by which either the structure of a conflict gets expanded to involve outside (foreign) actors, normally as secondary (supporting) parties, or (often as a result of the former) the nominal level of conflict gets upgraded from intrastate to interstate. Vertical escalation is enabled either through an attack by a source state on the territory or subjects of one or more of its neighbors (outward-directed vertical escalation), or alternatively through intervention by a state-based external actor into the original internal conflict (inward-directed vertical escalation). Finally, the systemic dimension (systemic escalation) denotes the expansion of international systemic limits of original conflict by increased political stake, interest and/or attention of various international actors vis-à-vis the conflict in question, through its “proxy-fication” or connectedness with other conflicts in the neighborhood. The proposed dimensions are conceptual constructs aimed at facilitating the analysis of conflict dynamics and are not intended to be interpreted literally. This current version of the dataset (2.0) covers the universe of armed conflicts in the regions of Europe (excl. FSU), Former Soviet Union (FSU), and Asia for the period from 1975 to 2018, and the Middle East and North Africa region for the period from 1989 to 2018.

Small Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) play a significant role in the socio-economic stimulation of South Africa. Particularly, South African SMMEs are believed to contribute around 50% to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP) while simultaneously employing up to 80% of the national workforce. Prior research does however suggest that these business entities have among the worst sustainability rates in the world as up to 75% fail after being in operation for three years. A probable reason for the latter dispensation is the non-management of economic factors, one of which is that of Taxation. Taxation is a mandatory obligation imposed on citizens of a country to fund state expenditure. For this working paper, Customs and Excise Taxation is focused on; Taxation that is levied on goods and/or services that are hazardous to both human- and environmental health and wellness. Over the years, Customs and Excise Taxation has not only been imposed on tobacco products, alcoholic products and plastic bags but have also increased year-on-year, to date. As such, the perception was formulated by the author that the sustainability of South African (retail) SMMEs, especially those who sell tobacco products, alcoholic products and plastic bags, are adversely affected by the year-on-year increases of Customs and Excise Taxation. The primary objective of this working paper is to ascertain whether the perception formulated shows truth, in theory. This working paper therefore takes on a non-empirical, exploratory approach that makes use of a qualitative research methodology. Stemming from the findings, thus far, it appears that Customs and Excise Taxation adversely influences the sustainability of South African SMMEs that sell tobacco products, alcoholic products and plastic bags.

This code source is a simulation of a hybrid high dimensional automated guided vehicle system design model in python. In fact, our approach aims to solve the problem of dimension growth in a convex 2D environment of an Automated Guided Vehicle System (AGVS), using a Deep reinforcement learning control system of kernels with low dimensions.
