Abstract: Magnetotellurics (MT) is a passive geophysical method which uses natural variations of electromagnetic fields generated by global lightning discharges and ionospheric current systems. Since it is impossible to control these source fields, signal-to-noise ratios can be poor, particularly in presence of cultural electromagnetic noise such as power lines, railways, anti-corrosion currents in gas pipelines, etc. The Remote Reference (RR) technique is an effective way to improve magnetotelluric data quality by referencing the locally recorded electromagnetic fields to simultaneously collected, undisturbed fields at a remote reference site. Finding and maintaining such a reference site during a field campaign is expensive and time consuming. The permanent reference site in Wittstock is operated by the Geo-Electromagnetics working group of the GFZ within the framework of the Geophysical Instrument Pool Potsdam and offers high quality magnetic field recordings for RR processing free of charge for the EM community.A permanent magnetotelluric (MT) remote reference station is located in an urban forest near the city of Wittstock, in north-eastern Germany (Eydam and Muñoz, 2011). It is equipped with two S.P.A.M. Mk IV data loggers and three sets of magnetometers working in different frequency ranges. The highest frequency data is recorded using Metronix MFS07 induction coils with a sampling frequency of 6.25 kHz. The high frequency data is recorded in quasi-continuous segments, with intervals of data being collected for 10 minutes at every hour. The intermediate, broad band magnetic field data are recorded continuously using Metronix MFS06 induction coils at 250 Hz sampling frequency. Finally, long period data is recorded using a 3-component Geomagnet Fluxgate magnetometer with 5 Hz sampling rate. For completeness, electric fields are also recorded continuously at the highest frequency.The data are organized and available as daily folders. Data files are in EMERALD format (Ritter et al., 1998), which is also described in this document. We also provide computer code and example data demonstrating how to read these data files. The tools are provided as FORTRAN, C and C++ source codes and MATLAB scripts.

Abstract: The determination of exposure ages, erosion rates, or terrigenous fluxes into the oceans with meteoric cosmogenic 10Be or 10Be/9Be ratios requires knowledge of the depositional fluxes of this nuclide (Willenbring and von Blanckenburg, 2010). The spatial distribution of these fluxes depends on stratospheric production, solar and paleomagnetic modulation, and atmospheric restribution. To allow for the estimation of such fluxes at a given site, and to enable the GIS-based calculation of such fluxes that integrate over large spatial areas (river basins, ocean basins) we provide global maps and excel sheets interpreted to present the average Holocene 10Be fluxes and an estimate of their uncertainty as modeled by atmospheric distribution models (Heikkilä et al., 2013, Heikkilä et al., 2013, Heikkilä and Smith, 2013).

Abstract: The KISS network was installed in the frame of the "Klyuchevskoy Investigation - Seismic Structure of an extraordinary volcanic system" project and recorded data between summer 2015 and summer 2016 in one of the world's largest clusters of subduction volcanoes - the Klyuchevskoy volcanic group (KVG). It is located in eastern Russia at the northern end of the Kuril-Kamchatka subduction zone close to its intersection with the Aleutian arc and the north-western termination of Hawaii-Emperor seamount chain. Additional to the 4700m high Mount Klyuchevskoy the KVG contains 12 other volcanoes that have together erupted about 1 cubic meter rock per second averaged over the past 10,000 years. Among those Klyuchevskoy, Bezymianny and Tolbachik were the most active ones during the last decades with eruptions styles ranging from explosive to Hawaiian-type. The KISS experiment is designed to investigate the volcanic and seismic processes and its structural setting in the KVG. The network covers a circular region of about 80km diameter with some linear extensions. It includes data from 77 temporary seismic stations with broadband and short period sensors that were installed on concrete plates in about 60cm deep holes. Due to the local conditions the stations were battery powered and could not be serviced during the experiment. GPS reception of the digitizers was not continuous at all stations due to thick snow cover and vegetation.

Abstract: Strong earthquakes cause transient perturbations of the near Earth’s surface system. These include the widespread landsliding and subsequent mass movement and the loading of rivers with sediments. In addition, rock mass is shattered during the event, forming cracks that affect rock strength and hydrological conductivity. Often overlooked in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake, these perturbations can represent a major part of the overall disaster with an impact that can last for years before restoring to background conditions. Thus, the relaxation phase is part of the seismically induced change by an earthquake and needs to be monitored in order to understand the full impact of earthquakes on the Earth system. Early June 2015, shortly after the April 2015 Mw7.9 Gorkha earthquake, we installed an array of 12 seismometers and geophones and 6 weather stations in the upper Bhotekoshi catchment, covering an area of ~50 km2. The seismic network was optimized for the monitoring of Earth surface processes (landsliding, mass wasting river processes, debris flows) and for the monitoring of properties of the shallow subsurface by coda analysis. To achieve the latter aim and to probe different scales and depths, seismometers were installed with inter-station distances from about 80m to 9km. In particular, in each of two locations close to the Bhotekoshi river, three seismometers were installed in small arrays with inter-station distances of about 100m. The seismic array is part of a wider data acquisition strategy including hydrometric measurements and high resolution optical (RapidEye) and radar imagery (TanDEM TerraSAR-X). Waveform data is available from the GEOFON data centre, under network code XN, and is embargoed until Jan 2021.

Abstract: Training Manual to use Terrestrial Systems Modeling Platform (TerrSysMP) as a numerical tool to develop a quantitative understanding of the complex soil-vegetation-atmosphere (SVA) interaction. The idealized setups in this manual, focus on the impact of root-zone soil moisture fluctuation on the diurnal energy partitioning and its feedback to the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) dynamics. The interplay between subsurface hydrodynamics (e.g., (ψ-θ_vol ) relationship) and plant physiological properties (e.g., roughness, stomata conductance, root depth) is addressed using different plant functional types (PFTs) and soil textures (i.e., percentage of clay and sand).
