Investigations of meltwater refreezing and density variations in the snowpack and firn within the percolation zone of the Greenland ice sheet

first_imgThe mass balance of polythermal ice masses is critically dependent on the proportion of surface-generated meltwater that subsequently refreezes in the snowpack and firn. In order to quantify this effect and to characterize its spatial variability, we measured near-surface (26%, resulting in a 32% increase in net accumulation. This ‘seasonal densification’ increased at lower elevations, rising to 47% 10 km closer to the ice-sheet margin at 1860 m a. s. l. Density/depth profiles from nine sites within 1 km2 at ∼1945 m a.s.l. reveal complex stratigraphies that change over short spatial scales and seasonally. We conclude that estimates of mass-balance change cannot be calculated solely from observed changes in surface elevation, but that near-surface densification must also be considered. However, predicting spatial and temporal variations in densification may not be straightforward. Further, the development of complex firn-density profiles both masks discernible annual layers in the near-surface firn and ice stratigraphy and is likely to introduce error into radar-derived estimates of surface elevation.last_img read more

Manufacturer Signs Lease To Assemble Aircraft At Jamestown Airport

first_imgImage by the Luscombe Aircraft Corporation / luscombeair.com.JAMESTOWN – Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel has signed a long-term lease agreement with principals of Luscombe Aircraft Corporation to establish an aircraft production and sales business in a County-owned hangar at the County’s Jamestown Airport.  Wendel says the new enterprise will create new manufacturing jobs and generate lease revenue to offset airport operating costs.“While the current public health crisis has dramatically curtailed the level of aircraft activity at the airports, we are actively planning for a rebound in private and business aviation activity once travel and related restrictions are lifted,” said Wendel. “Similarly, the County remains fully engaged with Boutique Airlines in a broad-based, community support campaign to restore commercial air service at the Jamestown Airport.”Luscombe Aircraft Corporation will be relocating their fledgling operations from Chino, California to Chautauqua County over the next several months. Concurrently, they will be undertaking improvements to the County’s leased hangar to equip the facility with utility infrastructure and building systems necessary to begin full scale aircraft production in the summer of 2020.Luscombe’s production relocation and start-up in Chautauqua County is being actively supported by the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA), The Fredonia Technology Incubator at the State University of New York at Fredonia, and the Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities’ Airports Division.Luscombe Aircraft Corporation was formed for the purpose of acquiring licenses, designs and other assets to produce modernized variants of the Luscombe Model 8, a venerable single-engine aircraft that went out of production in the early 1970s.Having acquired the FAA type certificates, tooling, new-old stock (NOS) parts and associated assets from the holding company that held the rights to the aircraft design, Luscombe set about identifying a site suitable for assembly, testing and marketing of its modernized designs.The CCIDA monitored the efforts of Luscombe principals as they worked to amass the resources and necessary licenses to produce aircraft.As Luscombe’s business aspirations developed into well-defined plans, CCIDA engaged company principals in market research, analysis of suitable regional supply chain partners, and ultimately steered company representatives to the County’s Jamestown Airport where alignment between Luscombe’s needs and the County’s available hangar resources were realized.Among the many factors cited by Luscombe’s management team in selecting Chautauqua County for its aircraft production facility is the workforce development resources nurtured through Jamestown Community College and SUNY Fredonia and a local manufacturing base with recognized skilled engineers and tradesmen.The establishment of an aircraft production facility at the Jamestown Airport follows closely on the heels of other business development at the County’s airports.In February, Centric Aviation took over operation of all core flight-line services at both the Jamestown and Dunkirk airports under separate lease-operating agreements signed with the County.Under those agreements, the county receives a fixed monthly rental fee as well as a percentage of gross revenues generated from fuel sales, aircraft de-icing and other services.

Google #badminton badminton all-england Praveen-Melati When Indonesia’s ace Liliyana Natsir quit badminton in early 2019, doubts emerged as to how long it would take for Indonesia’s young mixed doubles badminton squad to fill the gap left by the Olympic gold medalist.Not too long, it turned out, after 2020 All England final late Sunday night Jakarta time witnessed her juniors Praveen Jordan and Melati Daeva Oktavianti win the prestigious title — the first mixed doubles All England victory in four years.A solid combination between Melati’s front court defense and Praveen’s fast smash sent the pair to the top podium on Sunday, destroying the hopes of Thailand’s Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai of securing their first All England title.In a fast match, both pairs displayed skill in pressuring each other with unexpected shuttle placements and solid defense.Praveen and Melati gained… Linkedin Topics :last_img read more

Robert Lewandowski ends Republic of Ireland’s hopes of automatic qualification

first_img Martin O’Neill’s men, who had won their three previous qualifiers to keep themselves firmly in the race, have the consolation prize of a place in the play-offs, but still have plenty of work to do if they are to join England, Wales and Northern Ireland at next summer’s finals. O’Neill, who had hinted in the run-up to the game that some of his players were feeling the effects of their exertions against the Germans, made five changes, restoring Glenn Whelan and James McClean after suspension, drafting in Seamus Coleman following his recovery from a hamstring problem and rewarding keeper Darren Randolph and match-winner Shane Long for their efforts on Thursday evening. The game rather meandered through the early stages as the teams probed away at each other without ever really threatening to do anything decisive, and there was no real indication of what was to follow. However, it exploded into life with 13 minutes gone when, after Coleman and O’Shea has combined to repel a foray into the box, the ball fell to Kamil Grosicki, who prompted a good reaction save from Randolph from close range. Ireland managed only to half-clear the resulting corner to Krychowiak 20 yards out and his sweetly struck low drive sped into the bottom corner with the wrong-footed Randolph helpless. But the visitors were behind for only three minutes, although the incident which led to the equaliser did not go down well with the home fans among a crowd of 57,497. Defender Michal Pazdan’s high challenge on Long was ugly, but television replays suggested it might have occurred outside the box. Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir nevertheless pointed to the spot and Walters calmly beat keeper Lukasz Fabianski to claim his eight goal in an Ireland shirt. Robert Lewandowski ended the Republic of Ireland’s hopes of automatic qualification for the Euro 2016 finals as Poland secured their trip to France. The Poles saw an 18th-minute Pawel Olkowski strike correctly ruled out for offside as the home side redoubled their efforts, and although the Republic defended stubbornly, they eventually succumbed three minutes before the break. This time, Olkowski was the provider, picking out Lewandowski with the perfect cross for the in-form striker to power a header past Randolph. Adam Nawalka’s men returned determined to kill the game off and assure their presence in France as quickly as possible, and Ireland found themselves largely on the back foot once again. Whelan forced Fabianski into a solid save with a 51st-minute shot from distance after Robbie Brady’s enterprising run, but the Stoke midfielder was to depart seven minutes later when he was replaced by Aiden McGeady, and he did so having seen Long carried from the field on a stretcher with what looked like an ankle injury. Long’s departure had prompted Robbie Keane’s introduction, but although Ireland were now contesting the game higher up the pitch, that left space behind and Grosicki almost exploited it when he was played in with 65 minutes gone, only for Randolph to block. Randolph might have been called upon once again six minutes later after Lewandowski raced clear of the cover, but Coleman came to his rescue with a superbly-timed challenge. Central defender Richard Keogh cameclose nine minutes from time when he got his head to McGeady’s cross, but Fabianski claimed the ball at the second attempt, and Ireland’s hopes were gone when O’Shea, who had been cautioned before the break, felled Lewandowski and was dismissed. The Bayern Munich striker’s 15th goal in 447 minutes of football for club and country handed the home side a 2-1 win to end their Group D campaign in second place behind world champions Germany. Grzegorz Krychowiak had given the Poles a 13th-minute lead at the Narodowy Stadium, but Jonathan Walters’ penalty three minutes later gave Ireland, who had skipper John O’Shea sent off for as second bookable offence in injury time, fresh hope until Lewandowski’s 42nd-minute intervention.
