Abstract: This data set provides data from subduction zone earthquake experiments and analysis described in Rosenau et al. (2019). In the experiments analogue seismotectonic scale models of subduction zones characterized by two seismogenic asperities are used to study the interaction of asperities over multiple seismic cycles by means of static (Coulomb failure) stress transfer. Various asperity geometries (lateral/along-strike of the subduction zone distance and vertical/across-strike of the subduction zone offset) are tested on their effect on recurrence pattern of simulated great (M8+) earthquakes. The results demonstrate the role of stress coupling in the synchronization of asperities leading to multi-asperity M9+ events in nature. The data set contains time series of experimental surface velocities from which analogue earthquakes are detected and classified into synchronized events and solo events. The latter are subcategorized into main events and aftershocks and into normal and thrust events. An analogue earthquake catalogue lists all categorized events of the 12 experiments used for statistical analysis. Moreover, results from elastic dislocation modelling aimed ate quantifying the stress coupling between the asperities for the various geometries are summarized. Basic statistics of classified events (e.g. percentage of categorized events, coefficient of variation in size and recurrence time etc.) are documented. Matlab scripts are provided to visualize the data as in the paper.

Abstract: Intergranular pressure solution creep is an important deformation mechanism in the Earth’s crust. The phenomenon has been frequently studied and several analytical models have been proposed that describe its constitutive behavior. These models require assumptions regarding the geometry of the aggregate and the grain size distribution in order to solve for the contact stresses, and often neglect shear tractions. Furthermore, analytical models tend to overestimate experimental compaction rates at low porosities, an observation for which the underlying mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Here we present a conceptually simple, 3D Discrete Element Method (DEM) approach for simulating intergranular pressure solution creep that explicitly models individual grains, relaxing many of the assumptions that are required by analytical models. The DEM model is validated against experiments by direct comparison of macroscopic sample compaction rates. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the overall DEM compaction rate to the grain size and applied stress is tested. The effects of the interparticle friction and of a distributed grain size on macroscopic strain rates are subsequently investigated. Overall, we find that the DEM model is capable of reproducing realistic compaction behavior, and that the strain rates produced by the model are in good agreement with uniaxial compaction experiments. Characteristic features, such as the dependence of the strain rate on grain size and applied stress, as predicted by analytical models, are also observed in the simulations. DEM results show that interparticle friction and a distributed grain size affect the compaction rates by less than half an order of magnitude. The zip-file Van-den-Ende_2017.018.zip contains several folders with raw data from the laboratory experiments, output data from Discrete Element Method simulations, and Python 2.7 script files that read and process these data. All data are stored in ASCII format.

Abstract: This publication contains the supplementary data set to Mikolaj et al. "Resolving geophysical signals by terrestrial gravimetry: a time domain assessment of the correction-induced uncertainty" (2019, JGR-Solid Earth). The aim of the article is to estimate the uncertainty of terrestrial gravity corrections applied to resolve small-scale gravity effects. The uncertainty of the gravity corrections is assessed using various models of the tidal effect, large-scale hydrology, non-tidal ocean loading, and atmosphere. Taken into account are widely recognized models with global spatial coverage, sufficient temporal resolution and coverage, and available to the public for research purposes. The uncertainty is expressed in terms of a root-mean-square and mean-absolute error of the deviations between all available models. The data set comprises models for 11 sites worldwide. The processing scripts are provided along with an explanatory file with all instructions for results reproduction and application of the uncertainty analysis for an arbitrary location. Please consult the readme file for further details on the data.

Abstract: Grond is an open source software tool for robust characterization of earthquake sources. Moment tensors and finite fault rupture models can be estimated from a combination of seismic waveforms, waveform attributes and geodetic observations like InSAR and GNSS. It helps you to investigate diverse magmatic, tectonic, and other geophysical processes at all scales. It delivers meaningful model uncertainties through a Bayesian bootstrap-based probabilistic joint inversion scheme. The optimisation explores the full model space and maps model parameter trade-offs with a flexible design of objective functions. Rapid forward modelling is enabled by using pre-computed Green's function databases, handled through the Pyrocko software library. They serve synthetic near-field surface displacements and synthetic seismic waveforms for arbitrary earthquake source models and geometries.

Abstract: The data set contains hydrological, meteorological and gravity time series collected at Argentine-German Geodetic Observatory (AGGO) in La Plata, Argentina. The hydrological series include soil moisture, temperature, electric conductivity, soil parameters, and groundwater variation. The meteorological time series comprise air temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed, solar short- and long-waver radiation, and precipitation. The observed hydrometeorological parameters are extended by modelled value of evapotranspiration and water content variation in the zone between deepest soil moisture sensor and the groundwater level. Gravity products include large-scale hydrological, oceanic as well as atmospheric effects. These gravity effects are furthermore extended by local hydrological effects and gravity residuals suitable for comparison and evaluation of the model performance. Provided are directly observed values denoted as Level 1 product along with pre-processed series corrected for known issues (Level 2). Level 3 products are model outputs acquired using Level 2 data. The maximal temporal coverage of the data set ranges from May 2016 up to November 2018 with some exceptions for sensors and models set up in May 2017. The data set is organized in a database structure suitable for implementation in a relational database management system. All definitions and data tables are provided in separate text files allowing for traditional use without database installation. Software related to the data acquisition, processing, and modelling can be found in a separate publication describing scripts applied to the data set presented here. The software publication is available at https://doi.org/10.5880/GFZ.5.4.2018.002 (Mikolaj, 2018)

Abstract: This dataset is supplementary to the article of Ritter et al. (2017). In this article, a new experimental device is presented that facilitates precise measurements of boundary forces and surface deformation at high temporal and spatial resolution. This supplementary dataset contains the measurement data from two experiments carried out in this new experimental device: one experiment of an accretionary critical wedge and one of Riedel-type strike-slip deformation. For a detailed description of the set-up and an analysis of the data, please see Ritter et al. (2017). The data available for either experiment are:• A video showing deformation in top view together with the evolution of boundary force. This file is in AVI-format.• A time-series of 2D vector fields describing the surface deformation. These vector fields were obtained from top-view video images of the respective experiment by means of digital image correlation (DIC). Each vector field is contained in a separate file; the files are consecutively numbered. The vector fields are stored in *.mat-files that can be opened using e.g. the software Matlab or the freely available GNU Octave. They take the form of Matlab structure arrays and are compatible to the PIVmat-toolbox by Moisy (2016) that is freely available. The most important fields of the structure are: x and y, that are vectors spanning a coordinate system, and vx and vy, which are arrays containing the actual vector components in x- and y-direction, respectively.• A file containing the measurements of the boundary force applied to drive deformation. This file is also a *.mat-file, containing a structure F with fields force, velocity and position. These fields are vectors describing the force applied by the indenter, the indenter velocity and the indenter position

Abstract: The dataset includes movies of 29 analogue experiments performed to investigate the effects on dike propagation by the following imposed parameters: density ratio between host-rock and magma analogues, rigidity layering and density layering of the host medium, flow rate and topography. The purpose of the experiments is to define a hierarchy of all the parameters considered, by varying systematically each of them, comparing semi-quantitatively the variations on dike geometry and velocity. Experimental setup The experimental set-up consists of a 33 × 58 × 38.5 cm3 Plexiglas box and a peristaltic pump that injects water (magma analogue) into pig-skin gelatin (crustal analogue) alternatively from the bottom (Set 1) and the side of the box (Set 2). The gelatin rheological properties are varied by mixing different concentrations of gelatin powder and NaCl. We refer to “rigidity layering” when the rigidity ratio (i.e. Young’s Modulus) between the upper and lower layer (Eu/El) is < or > 1, and to “density layering” when Eu/El ~ 1, but the two layers show different densities (i.e. the ratio between the density of the upper and lower layer, ρU/ρL). The experiments with topography are prepared by imposing a mold with gently inward dipping flanks (2.4° and 3.7°) on the opposite sides of the box separated by a 8 cm wide horizontal plain on the gelatin surface. This configuration simulates the 2-D along-strike topography of the 2014 Bardarbunga intrusion (Iceland) and allows investigating the role of two opposite slopes on dike propagation. The topography profile dips parallel to the long side of the Plexiglas box (x axis in Figure 1 of Urbani et al. 2018). The flow rate has been changed between 0.079 and 0.435 ml/s. For the details about the model set-up, experimental results and interpretation refer to Urbani et al. (2018). The time-lapse movies show the time evolution of the dike shape, in side and map view, of 29 out of 33 models presented in Urbani et al. (2018). It is recommended to open the films with the VLC media player. The time-lapse of each experiment is indicated in the bottom left corner. A full list of files is given in “Experiments_Summary_2018-012.pdf” in which Set 1 (bottom injection) and Set 2 (lateral injection) experiments are indicated in red and blue color respectively. The same file also provides a summary of the boundary conditions imposed in each experiment. Tu and Tl indicate the thickness of the upper and lower layer respectively.

Abstract: This dataset contains 11 top view photographs of fault pattern in sand surfaces from a series of analogue tectonic experiments run to investigate the interaction between faults and volcanic features in areas characterized by pure extension, such as in rift areas (de-Matteo_2018-004_datasets.zip: Fig 02 – Fig 12). Additionally, a figure with a sketch of the experimental setup is provided (Fig 01), a file describing experimental settings for analogue experiments (Table 1.pdf) and a file with figure captions (Figure captions.pdf). This dataset is supplementary to De Matteo et al. (2018), discussing if and how the presence of a volcanic edifice and/or of an intrusive body (i.e. a magmatic chamber) perturbs the local stress field, influencing the magnitude and the attitude of a fault pattern, in a rift zone. Models had dimensions of 40 x 30 x 5 cm. They were built on a metal table confined by two border walls normal to the extension direction: one of them (fixed wall) was fastened to the table and the other one (mobile wall) was connected to an electrical stepped motor (Fig 01). Models had a common set up consisting of a uniform 3 cm-thick brittle layer, made up of sand settled on a basal ~1.5 cm-thick rubber sheet, made of nitrile rubber, fixed to both walls. The sand was a mixture of dry quartz-sand mixed with K-Feldspar powder (70/30% in weight). The mixture had a grain size <250 µm, an angle of internal friction of ~39°, a cohesion of ~65 Pa and a density of ~1550 kg/m3. In some experiments a small cylindrical pocket of fluid material (1 cm thick and with variable diameter) was introduced in the brittle layer, 1 cm above the surface, to simulate an intrusive body. The fluid material was composed by a different Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), with density of ~1100 kg/m3 and viscosity of ~ 700 Pa s (Corti et al., 2005). In some experiments volcanic edifices were introduced, modeled with the sand mixture also used for the brittle layer. The model parameters that have been changed were the presence or not of a volcanic edifice and/or of an intrusive body, the diameters of both the volcano and the intrusive body, the height of the volcano and the depth of the intrusive body. For details of experimental setups see table 1. The stretching of the basal rubber sheet, imposed by using a pure and simple shear deformation apparatus, allowed inducing a progressive, diffuse extension to models. The displacement velocity has been varied from 2 to 10 cm/h since -being purely brittle models- the scaling velocity in not relevant. Experiments were performed at the Laboratorie Magmas et Volcans, Université Blaise Pascal (Clermont-Ferrand, France) and at the Tectonic Modeling Laboratory of the CNR-IGG hosted at the Earth Science Department of the University of Florence (Italy).
