Creator: Adam Schneider and Mark Flanner Description: This dataset contains all data used to generate the figures in The Cryosphere manuscript “Measuring Snow Specific Surface Area with 1.30 and 1.55 micro-meter Bidirectional Reflectance Factors,” by Adam Schneider, Mark Flanner, and Roger De Roo. These data support the theory, calibration, and application of the Near-Infrared Emitting and Reflectance Monitoring Dome (NERD), an instrument engineered to rapidly retrieve surface snow specific surface area in the field. Note that this deposit includes a microCT scan database for natural snowfall samples collected in New Hampshire during 2015-2017, comprised of raw tiff files as well as reconstructions, binarized reconstructions, and some 3D model reconstructions. and Running python scripts generally require that the following packages are installed: NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, Pandas, and ipdb (for debugging).
Creator: Veinot, Tiffany, Yu, DeAhean, Data Driven Detroit, Okullo, Dolorence, Gomez-Lopez, Iris N., and Yan, Xiang (Jacob) Description: This dataset includes census tract-level data concerning housing in Metropolitan Detroit. The data includes: 1) Total housing units and total mortgages in the tract; 2) Land use; 3) Real estate information (foreclosures, sales transactions, and home values); 4) Vacant housing; 5) Housing age and available facilities; 6) Housing condition; and 7) Spatial measures of subsidized housing in the tract. Data coverage should say 2006 to 2015.
Creator: Atwell, Jon Description: The data file is json formatted and all fields are named descriptively. The code is written in Python 2.7 and is heavily commented.
