  • Results from simulations of earthquake rupture in fault zones with along-strike heterogeneity

    Creator: Huang, Yihe
    Description: Geological and geophysical observations reveal along-strike fault zone heterogeneity on major strike-slip faults, which can play a significant role in earthquake rupture propagation and termination. I present 2D dynamic rupture simulations to demonstrate rupture characteristics in such heterogeneous fault zone structure. The modeled rupture is nucleated in a damaged fault zone and propagates on a preexisting fault towards the zone of intact rocks. There is an intermediate range of nucleation lengths that only allow rupture to spontaneously propagate in the damaged fault zone but not in a homogeneous medium. I find that rupture with an intermediate nucleation length tends to stop when it reaches the zone of intact rocks, especially when the rupture propagation distance in the damaged fault zone is relatively short and when the damaged fault zone is relatively narrow or smooth in the fault-normal direction. Pronounced small-scale heterogeneity within the damaged fault zone also contributes to such early rupture termination. In asymmetric fault zones bisected by a bimaterial fault, rupture moving in the direction of slip of faster rocks tends to terminate under the same conditions as in symmetric fault zones, whereas rupture moving in the direction of slip of slower rocks can penetrate into the zone of intact rocks. Break-through rupture is allowed when a sufficiently-large asperity is located at the edge of the zone of intact rocks. The results suggest the along-strike fault zone heterogeneity can play a critical role in seismicity distribution. The data set contains multiple folders of simulation results from the SEM2DPACK that demonstrate the above findings. The folder name includes the model parameters in each simulation as explained in the README file. The file in the folder documents the slip, slip rate and stresses from each simulation. The files are also explained in the manual of SEM2DPACK ( Please refer to section 4.6 in the manual and use “sem2d_read_fault.m” in the POST folder of SEM2DPACK to plot the results.
  • Anthropogenic Aerosol indirect effects in cirrus clouds

    Creator: Penner, Joyce E., Zhou, Cheng, Garnier, Anne, and Mitchell, David
    Description: This data set contains the scripts and data sets needed to create the 9 figures in the referenced publication.
  • Stewardship Gap Project Bibliography Data

    Creator: York, Jeremy, Gutmann, Myron, and Berman, Francine
    Description: The data were collected as part of the Stewardship Gap project, an 18-month study to investigate how research data and creative outputs supported by public or non-profit funding in the United States are being stewarded. These data were collected as part of a literature search of sources about research data stewardship and relate most directly to work describing “What We Know About the Stewardship Gap.” In this work, we categorized “gaps” in stewardship identified in the literature, how the gaps were related to one another, and efforts to measure and develop metrics for the gaps.
  • Downloaded IAAF Sprint Results in all Heats for 2004 - 2016 Olympics for both Men and Women

    Creator: Mirshams Shahshahani, Payam
    Description: Investigating minimum human reaction times is often confounded by the motivation, training, and state of arousal of the subjects. We used the reaction times of athletes competing in the shorter sprint events in the Athletics competitions in recent Olympics (2004-2016) to determine minimum human reaction times because there's little question as to their motivation, training, or state of arousal. The reaction times of sprinters however are only available on the IAAF web page for each individual heat, in each event, at each Olympic. Therefore we compiled all these data into two separate excel sheets which can be used for further analyses.
  • Multi-Stage Attack Graph Security Games: Heuristic Strategies, with Empirical Game-Theoretic Analysis --- Dataset

    Creator: Nguyen, Thanh H., Wright, Mason, Wellman, Michael P., and Singh, Satinder
    Description: In this work , we study the problem of allocating limited security countermeasures to protect network data from cyber-attacks, for scenarios modeled by Bayesian attack graphs. We consider multi-stage interactions between a network administrator and cybercriminals, formulated as a security game. We propose parameterized heuristic strategies for the attacker and defender and provide detailed analysis of their time complexity. Our heuristics exploit the topological structure of attack graphs and employ sampling methods to overcome the computational complexity in predicting opponent actions. Due to the complexity of the game, we employ a simulation-based approach and perform empirical game analysis over an enumerated set of heuristic strategies. Finally, we conduct experiments in various game settings to evaluate the performance of our heuristics in defending networks, in a manner that is robust to uncertainty about the security environment.
  • Data from "Genomic evidence of a widespread southern distribution during the Last Glacial Maximum for two eastern North American hickory species"

    Creator: Bemmels, Jordan B. and Dick, Christopher W.
    Description: Raw SNP genotypes are provided in STRUCTURE format, with a maximum of one SNP reported per ddRAD locus. The files "caryco_SNP.str" and "caryov_SNP.str" are genotypes for Carya cordiformis and Carya ovata, respectively. The first column of each file is the individual name, the second column is the population (see original publication for information on population locations), and the remaining columns are genotypes of individual SNPs. Rows represent individuals, with the diploid genotypes contained on two lines per individual. Missing data are entered as "0" (zero). The first row is a header with a unique identifier for each SNP. and Occurrence records for each species are provided in the file "occs_carya.csv" and contain the latitude and longitude of each record.
  • Qualitative Data Reuse: Records of Practice in Educational Research and Teacher Development: Interview Protocol, Qualitative Data Analysis Codeset, and Attributes for the Interviews

    Creator: Yakel, Elizabeth, Suzuka, Kara, and Frank, Rebecca
    Description: These data collection and analysis protocols and the attribute list are part of a larger research project, the Institute of Museum and Library Services # LG-06-14-0122-14. funded "Qualitative Data Reuse: Records of Practice in Educational Research and Teacher Development." As such, our research questions concern data reuse and data curation: 1. Data Reuse: What are the dynamics of the data reuse lifecycle (from selection of data through the reuse of data) in a qualitative digital educational archive? 2. Data curation: What special issues are involved in curating digital qualitative data for reuse? • How can qualitative data archives best support data reusers throughout the data reuse lifecycle? • What aspects of this experience are informative for other types of qualitative data archives? The overall project employed mixed methods and collected interview, observational, and trace data from data reusers of video records of practice in education and repositories holding video records of practice. The interview protocol and interview codeset relate to the 44 interviews conducted with researchers and teacher-educators who have reused digital video records of practice as qualitative data for research and/or teaching.
  • Central Mali crafts and grooming documentaries

    Creator: Heath, Jeffrey
    Description: Videos made in the course of linguistic fieldwork. Includes blacksmithing, hide tanning, weaving, cotton spinning, weaving, reed flute making, pottery making, and construction in Dogon villages, and exotic traditional hair styling in Hombori (Songhay). Some of the videos are "compilations" of many short clips, others are in standard documentary form.
  • Central Mali oils soaps and soda-ash documentaries

    Creator: Heath, Jeffrey
    Description: Videos done in the course of linguistic fieldwork in Central Mali. They are presented here in two or three video formats. The videos show how Dogon villagers press oil from nuts and fruit pits, make liquid soda ash (French potasse), and make soap. Some are in standard documentary form, some early ones ("compendiums") are sequences of brief clips. Most were made in Beni village or in the Douentza area.
