Kwang, Jeffrey S.; Langston, Abigail L.; Parker, Gary (2020): Dataset for "Why are Drainage Networks Dendritic?". University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-3968226_V1
This dataset contains data from 10 simulations using a landscape evolution model. A landscape evolution model simulates how uplift and rock incision shape the Earth's (or other planets) surface. To date, most landscape evolution models exhibit "extreme memory" (paper: https://doi.org/10.1029/2019GL083305 and dataset: https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-4484338_V1). Extreme memory in landscape evolution models causes initial conditions to be unrealistically preserved. This dataset contains simulations from a new landscape evolution model that incorporates a sub-model that allows bedrock channels to erode laterally. With this addition, the landscapes no longer exhibit extreme memory. Initial conditions are erased over time, and the landscapes tend towards a dynamic steady state instead of a static one. There are 2 animations for each simulation, which totals for 20 animations (10 simulations x 2). For each simulation, there is 1 animation that shows elevation and 1 animation that shows drainage area over time. Elevation depicts the height of the landscape, and drainage area represents a contributing area that is upslope. There are 20 folders in the dataset, and each folder contains: >1000 .asc raster files >1 .wmv formatted movie >1 .mp4 formatted movie The associated publication for this dataset has not yet been published, and we will update this description with a link when it is.

This dataset contains experimental measurements used in the paper, "Ultra-sensitivity of Numerical Landscape Evolution Models to their Initial Conditions." (to be submitted). The data is taken from experimental runs in a miniature landscape model named the eXperimental Landscape Evolution (XLE) facility. In this facility, we complete five >24hr runs at 5 minute temporal resolution. Every five minutes, an planform image was capture, and a digital elevation model (DEM) was generated. For each run, images and a corresponding animation of images are documented. In addition,ASCII formatted DEMs along with color hillshade maps were generated. The hillshade map images were also made into an animation. This dataset is associated with the following publication: https://doi.org/10.1029/2019GL083305

Terrorism is among the most pressing challenges to democratic governance around the world. The Responsible Terrorism Coverage (or ResTeCo) project aims to address a fundamental dilemma facing 21st century societies: how to give citizens the information they need without giving terrorists the kind of attention they want. The ResTeCo hopes to inform best practices by using extreme-scale text analytic methods to extract information from more than 70 years of terrorism-related media coverage from around the world and across 5 languages. Our goal is to expand the available data on media responses to terrorism and enable the development of empirically-validated models for socially responsible, effective news organizations. This particular dataset contains information extracted from terrorism-related stories in the New York Times published between 1945 and 2018. It includes variables that measure the relative share of terrorism-related topics, the valence and intensity of emotional language, as well as the people, places, and organizations mentioned. This dataset contains 3 files: 1. <i>"ResTeCo Project NYT Dataset Variable Descriptions.pdf"</i> <ul> <li>A detailed codebook containing a summary of the Responsible Terrorism Coverage (ResTeCo) Project New York Times (NYT) Dataset and descriptions of all variables. </li> </ul> 2. <i>"resteco-nyt.csv"</i> <ul><li>This file contains the data extracted from terrorism-related media coverage in the New York Times between 1945 and 2018.

Eick, Brian (2020): Acceleration and strain data for free vibration of pre-tensioned, partially-submerged beams. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-7897650_V1
The data provided herein is accelerometer and strain data taken from free vibration response of pre-tensioned, partially submerged steel beam specimens (modulus of elasticity assumed = 29,000 ksi). The specimens were subjected to various levels of pre-tension, and various levels of submersion in water. The purpose of the testing was to quantify the effects of partial submersion on the vibrating frequencies of pretensioned beams. Three specimens were tested, each with different cross section (but identical cross-sectional area). The different cross sections allow investigation of the effects of specimen width as the specimen vibrates through water. The testing procedure was as follows: 1) Apply a specified level of tension in the beam. Measure tension via 3 strain gages. 2) Submerge the specimens to a specified depth of water 3) Excite the beams with either a hammer impact or a pull-and-release method (physically pull the middle of the bar and quickly release) 4) Measure the free vibration of the beam with 2 accelerometers. Schematic drawings of the test setup and the test specimens are provided, as is a picture of the test setup.

The Cline Center Global News Index is a searchable database of textual features extracted from millions of news stories, specifically designed to provide comprehensive coverage of events around the world. In addition to searching documents for keywords, users can query metadata and features such as named entities extracted using Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods and variables that measure sentiment and emotional valence. Archer is a web application purpose-built by the Cline Center to enable researchers to access data from the Global News Index. Archer provides a user-friendly interface for querying the Global News Index (with the back-end indexing still handled by Solr). By default, queries are built using icons and drop-down menus. More technically-savvy users can use Lucene/Solr query syntax via a ‘raw query’ option. Archer allows users to save and iterate on their queries, and to visualize faceted query results, which can be helpful for users as they refine their queries. <b>Additional Resources:</b> - Access to Archer and the Global News Index is limited to account-holders.
