Published Dataset: http://doi.org/10.5967/M0BZ645X

Abstract:
This experiment is part of a larger ensemble exploring flood intermittency and delta island growth. They were conducted in the Surface Transport and Earth-surface Processes (STEP) Basin, located at the Morphodynamics Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin.

The experimental domain is 1.85 m x 2 m with a water depth of 50 mm over a 50-mm thick sediment bed. The bed is composed of the same grain size as the input sediment: fine quartz sand, with a D50 of 171 µm and a density of 2650 kg/m3.

A computer controlled pump and auger feed the sediment and water (0.355 l/s at a concentration of 1:100) mixture into a bucket with an Arduino-controlled knife valve that connects to the domain inlet by a 2 inch PVC pipe. The water level in the STEP basin is maintained by a computer controlled weir, constraining water level within 1 mm of the 50 mm above the initial sediment bed height. The tank does not recirculate, and all the sediment from the flows remains in the domain during the experiments.

The experiments were recorded with overhead time-lapse imagery, a photo taken every 15 seconds. The overhead images were preprocessed, correcting for lens distortions at the edge of the frames.

Published Dataset: http://doi.org/10.5967/M04J0C60

Abstract:
These materials document a 'data rescue' effort undertaken as a collaboration between the leaders of the original research projects, students and staff at TESC, and the SEAD DataNet project. This effort involved gathering and organizing the existing materials, and a significant effort to annotate materials to enhance reusability.

The effort's scope included preserving the projects' web documentation, image archive, software products (executable and source) including a database generation tool and visualization software, paper publications, and the field study data recorded using databases generated using the projects' database generator tool.

In addition to preserving the original database files, the rescue effort converted all databases into a standard format (Software Independent Archiving of Relational Databases, http://www.eark-project.com/resources/specificationdocs/32-specification-for-siard-format-v20) and experimented with capturing a full virtual machine to provide a general mechanism to support live queries of the databases in the future.

The included poster from the 2015 AGU conference describes the early parts of the effort.

Our team wishes in particular to acknowledge the contributions of Michelle Wallace and Sharon McIntee, who had the primary responsibility for assembling materials, organizing them in SEAD, adding formal and informal (tag) annotations, and generating the SIARD and Virtual Machine forms of the databases.

Title: DNR Leave Tree Project

Published Dataset: http://doi.org/10.5967/M0CZ358V

Abstract:
The goal of the Evergreen-DNR Leave Tree Project is to help forest managers use results from forest canopy research to help determine which trees to leave when harvesting a stand of trees. This project hopes to articulate how statements of policy that determine which trees to leave, e.g., "leave those trees that increase wildlife habitat", might be made more specific, and to refine definitions terms used when specifying leave tree requirements, such as: complex structure, broken tops, large branches, crown gap, continuous crown.

The Leave Tree Project is currently gathering and analyzing data on how experts categorize crown shape and what they mean by certain commonly used terms such as "wildlife tree". We hope to develop an understanding of how crown structure relates to ecological values such as wildlife habitat. We are distributing a questionnaire and tree structure catalog to a panel to experts. The answers from the questionnaire will help us to determine commonalities that might be used to query our database for trees that satisfy certain structural features that, in turn, equate to particular ecological values.

Published Dataset: http://doi.org/10.5967/M0Z0368W

Abstract:
Videos from experiments performed in 2015 at the University of Texas at Austin. These lofting videos are of experimental turbidity currents with light interstitial fluid, achieved by heating interstitial fluid to 31 deg. C and keeping ambient tank water at 23 deg. C. Sediment concentration is varied between 1.5%, 2%, and 3% in these flows. Ground-hugging flows have the same density (i.e. temperature) interstitial and ambient water and have 1.6% sediment concentration. See the table included with this dataset and Steel et al., 2017 for all experimental conditions and results.

These videos are meant to supplement results published in Steel, E., Buttles, J., Simms, A.R., Mohrig, D., and Meiburg, E., 2017, The role of buoyancy reversal in turbidite deposition and submarine fan geometry: Geology, 45(1), 35-38. doi: 10.1130/G38446.1
