Abstract: This dataset provides friction data from ring-shear tests (RST) on feldspar sand and quartz sand, which are used to simulate brittle behaviour in crust- and lithosphere-scale analogue experiments at the Tectonic Laboratory (TecLab), Utrecht University (NL) (Willingshofer et al., 2005; Willingshofer & Sokoutis, 2009; Athmer et al., 2010; Luth et al., 2010; Fernández-Lozano et al., 2011; Leever et al., 2011; Sokoutis & Willingshofer, 2011; Fernández-Lozano et al., 2012; Luth et al., 2013; Munteanu et al., 2013; Willingshofer et al., 2013; Munteanu et al., 2014; Calignano et al., 2015a, b; Ortner et al., 2015; Gabrielsen et al., 2016; Calignano et al., 2017; van Gelder et al., 2017; Wang et al., 2017; Beniest et al., 2018 ). The materials have been characterized by means of internal friction coefficients µ and cohesions C as a remote service by the Helmholtz Laboratory for Tectonic Modelling (HelTec) at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam. According to our analysis both materials show a Mohr-Coulomb behaviour characterized by a linear failure envelope. Peak, dynamic and reactivation friction coefficients of the feldspar sand are µP = 0.68, µD = 0.55, and µR = 0.61, respectively. Friction coefficients of the quartz sand are µP = 0.63, µD = 0.48, and µR = 0.52, respectively. Cohesions of the feldspar sand and the quartz sand are in the order of few tens of Pa. A minor rate-weakening of 1% per ten-fold rate change is evident for the feldspar sand, whereas the quartz sand shows a significant rate weakening of ~5%. Further information about materical characteristics, measurement procedures, sample preparation, the RST (Ring-shear test) and VST (Velocity stepping test) procedure, as well as the analysed method is proviced in the data description file. The list of files explains the file and folder structure of the data set.

Abstract: This dataset provides strain and strain rate data on mixtures of plasticine, silicone oils and iron powder that has been used in slab break-of analogue experiments in the Tectonic Laboratory (TecLab) at Utrecht University (NL) as an analogue for viscously deforming lithosphere. The materials have been analyzed in a creep and recovery test, applying a parallel plate setup using an AR-G2 rheometer (by TA Instruments). The materials can in general be described as viscoelastic materials with a power-law rheology (see previous work on plasticine-silicone polymer mixtures Weijermars [1986], Sokoutis [1987], Boutelier et al. [2008]). For a couple of the tested materials we find a complementary Newtonian behavior at the low end of the tested stress levels, with a transition to power-law behavior at increasing stress. Furthermore, the materials exhibit elastic and anelastic (recoverable) deformation. The corresponding paper (Broerse et al., 2018) describes the rheology, while this supplement describes the raw data and important details of the measurement setup. The raw data concerns mostly (uncorrected) strain and strain rate data. The rheometry has been performed at the Advanced Soft Matter group at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands.

Abstract: Tracking the evolution of the deformational energy budget within accretionary systems provides insight into the driving mechanisms that control fault development. To quantify the impact of these mechanisms on overall system efficiency, we estimate energy budget components as the first thrust fault pair develops in dry-sand accretion analogue experiments. This data set includes photos taken and forces measured in four experiments performed at Université de Cergy-Pontoise in October-November 2016. The experiments are described in McBeck et al. (submitted). The data are organized into 5 main folders, with the following contents:1) E373_photos: Contains 3 subfolders: droit_RDY, gauche_RDY, haut_RDY. Each subfolder contains images taken at 1 second intervals throughout experiment. droit_RDY, gauche_RDY, and haut_RDY contain photos of the right, left, and top of the sandpack.2) E374_photos: Same organization and contents of folder E373_photos3) E375_photos: Same organization and contents of folder E373_photos4) E376_photos: Same organization and contents of folder E373_photos5) forces: Contains text files that list the normal force against the backwall (N) and total applied normal displacement to the backwall (mm) in the second and first columns, respectively. The filename indicates which experiment the text file describes.

Abstract: This dataset contains paleomagnetic data used to create the magnetostratigraphy of the Ugljevik section in Bosnia and Herzegovina (thesis by Karin Sant, 2018). It is the only outcrop known with the early, middle and upper Badenian sediments exposed in a continuous section. The dataset includes thermal demagnetization (.th files) and alternating field demagnetization (.af files) data from several partial sections (UG08, UG11 and UG13) together forming the full section (correlation figure is attached). The measurements took place at the Paleomagnetic Laboratory Fort Hoofddijk in Utrecht University, The Netherlands. The displayed AF measurements were performed in the per component setting. For further details about the methodology the reader is referred to the methodology in the thesis of K. Sant (2018). The .th and .af. files can be viewed with Notepad or similar programs, and analyzed via the Open Source platform Paleomagnetism.org: http://paleomagnetism.org/ (Koymans et al., 2016). An overview of the data files, abbreviation and sample codes is provided in the data description file.

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: The Ries impact structure in Southern Germany is one of the best-preserved impact structures on Earth. Melt-bearing impact breccia appears in a variety of well accessible exposures around the inner ring up to 10 km beyond the crater rim (so-called outer suevite) overlying a ballistically ejected lithic breccia (so-called ‘Bunte Breccia’). Occasionally individual melt bombs occur in the ‘Bunte Breccia’. Coherent impact melt rock outside the inner crater is located in the eastern megablock zone (Stöffler et al., 2013 and references therein). This data set comprises major and trace element geochemistry of samples from eight outer suevite exposures, one impact melt rock exposure, and one melt bomb of the Ries impact crater. Two analytical method approaches were performed: i) in-situ analysis using electron microprobe (EMP) and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), and ii) analysis of whole-rock, melt separates, and suevite matrix separates using X-ray fluorescence (XRF), and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES)/ inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
