Low-velocity accretionary wedges and sedimentary layers overlaying continental plates are widely observed in the subduction zones where historical large earthquakes have occurred. It was observed that rupture of the 2011 Mw 9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake propagated to the trench with large coseismic slip on the shallow fault, but what caused the huge shallow slip remains a prominent problem., Here we explore how the two low-velocity structures, accretionary wedge and sedimentary layer, affect the coseismic slip and near-fault ground motions during the 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake. Constrained by the observed seafloor deformation, we present a 2-D dynamic rupture model of the 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake with an accretionary wedge and a sedimentary layer. Compared to a homogeneous model with the same friction and stress parameters on the fault, we find that the co-existence of the accretionary wedge and sedimentary layer significantly enhances the shallow coseismic slip and amplifies ground accelerations near the accretionary wedge. We then investigate a plausible scenario of a smaller Tohoku-Oki earthquake when its rupture does not reach the accretionary wedge. The sedimentary layer slightly enhances the coseismic slip while the accretionary wedge has almost no influence for the smaller earthquake scenario, but both structures significantly amplify the ground accelerations on the overriding plate. , and By simulating a suite of earthquake scenarios, we suggest that the co-existence of an accretionary wedge and sedimentary layers tend to enhance coseismic slip, but the enhancement effect decreases as the up-dip limit of rupture zones terminates at a larger depth. The numerical simulations were solved using SEM2DPACK _2.3.8 ( http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/sem2d/), and simulation results were visualized by Matlab. This folder includes the input files to reproduce our simulation results and plot scripts.
The Division of Mammals at the Museum of Zoology was established in 1837, and has grown steadily to its current size, with over 150,000 specimens. An important feature of the mammal collection at the Museum of Zoology is our emphasis on non-traditional specimens.
The University of Michigan Museum of Zoology (UMMZ) is the center for the study of animal diversity on campus, focusing on the evolutionary origins of the planet’s animal species, the genetic information they contain and the communities and ecosystems they help form. Now an integral part of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB), the UMMZ houses world-class collections, containing more than 15 million specimens, span almost 200 years of regional and global biodiversity studies and that support a multi-faceted Departmental research and teaching program.
This project evaluated the binding of antibody fragments to membrane proteins fused to a short epitope sequence (“MPER”). This dataset includes atomic coordinates (.pdb files) for bioinformatic models of antibody fragment binding to an MPER epitope – membrane protein fusion.
These data are TLA events identified in MACCS magnetometer data throughout 2015. These events are short-timescale (< 60 s), large -amplitude (> 6 nT/s) magnetic disturbances measured at Earth's surface that are analyzed for space weather research purposes. and The events were identified in a year's worth of magnetic field data using an algorithm developed in the MATLAB platform. The algorithm dBdt_main.m can be run using the associated scripts (clean_maccs.m, simple_dbdt.m, extremes1.m, newdbdt.m) to return the events in the 2015_AllEvents.csv file. The substorm onset delays of each event are determined with the onset_delays.m script and the substorm event list 20191127-15-56-substorms.csv (both included).

This data set was created with the purpose to study the electron pitch angle distributions on dayside closed crustal fields at Mars and to compare with theoretical predictions made by numerical modeling. Analyzing the plasma environment of the crustal fields was another point of study to determine if whistler waves can interact with high energy superthermal electrons.
We use the term “performance summary display” (PSD) to mean a kind of visualization that relates performance levels to other types of information. In the context of healthcare organizations, PSDs are intended to be communicated to a healthcare professional, team, or organization. and Displays were identified, classified, and elements counted and coded. The performance summary display ontology provides a set of descriptions of components of displays that have been used to annotate performance feedback visualizations.
