Freshwater distributions and water mass structure in the Amundsen Sea Polynya region, Antarctica

first_imgWe present the first densely-sampled hydrographic survey of the Amundsen Sea Polynya (ASP) region, including a detailed characterization of its freshwater distributions. Multiple components contribute to the freshwater budget, including precipitation, sea ice melt, basal ice shelf melt, and iceberg melt, from local and non-local sources. We used stable oxygen isotope ratios in seawater (δ18O) to distinguish quantitatively the contributions from sea ice and meteoric-derived sources. Meteoric fractions were high throughout the winter mixed layer (WML), with maximum values of 2–3% (±0.5%). Because the ASP region is characterized by deep WMLs, column inventories of total meteoric water were also high, ranging from 10–13 m (±2 m) adjacent to the Dotson Ice Shelf (DIS) and in the deep trough to 7–9 m (±2 m) in shallower areas. These inventories are at least twice those reported for continental shelf waters near the western Antarctic Peninsula. Sea ice melt fractions were mostly negative, indicating net (annual) sea ice formation, consistent with this area being an active polynya. Independently determined fractions of subsurface glacial meltwater (as one component of the total meteoric inventory) had maximum values of 1–2% (±0.5%), with highest and shallowest maximum values at the DIS outflow (80–90 m) and in iceberg-stirred waters (150–200 m). In addition to these upwelling sites, contributions of subsurface glacial meltwater could be traced at depth along the ~ 27.6 isopycnal, from which it mixes into the WML through various processes. Our results suggest a quasi-continuous supply of melt-laden iron-enriched seawater to the euphotic zone of the ASP and help to explain why the ASP is Antarctica’s most biologically productive polynya per unit area.last_img read more

Trey Anastasio Shares Pro-Shot Footage Of “Drift While You’re Sleeping” From NYC Ghosts Of The Forest Show [Watch]

He explained,This has been in place all along, but, the idea was to take the two nights and record the shows as a live album at the United Palace Theatre. It will almost be like a regular recording session, with two passes at the shows. For example, when Aretha Franklin was famously recording a record she would do two passes and that was it. Everyone had to play live. So for us, this is like we get two takes at the United Palace Theatre, but most importantly, the full picture of the Ghosts of the Forest document will have our community members and family in the audience. The recording will end up being a live album.On Wednesday, after sharing “Ghosts of the Forest” the day prior, Anastasio has unveiled the second pro-shot video from the recent Ghosts of the Forest NYC performances with “Drift While You’re Sleeping”, which you can watch below:Ghosts of the Forest – “Drift While You’re Sleeping” – 4/12/2019 (Pro-Shot)[Video: Trey Anastasio]Trey Anastasio Band (which features Ghosts of the Forest members Ray Paczkowski, Tony Markellis, and Jennifer Hartswick) is gearing up for a run of shows in late May before Trey and Ghosts of the Forest drummer Jon Fishman turn their attention back to their main project for Phish‘s 2019 summer tour, beginning with a two-night run at St. Louis, MO’s Chaifetz Arena on June 11th and 12th.

Center for European Studies partners with European Parliament for 3-year pilot exchange program

first_img Read Full Story The Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES) is thrilled to announce the launch of a three-year pilot exchange program with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), a political party in the European Parliament. The goal of this new agreement is to provide meaningful internships for Harvard College students, research opportunities for ALDE’s policymakers, and to promote a free exchange of ideas.The program wrapped up its first phase as Harvard College students Beatrice Walton ‘14 and Karen Zhou ‘14 returned from a summer interning for ALDE in the European Parliament in Brussels. During the 2013-14 academic year, CES will in turn host members of ALDE’s senior policy staff as short-term policy fellows in residence, with Anders Rasmussen and Philip Drauz as the inaugural ALDE fellows. Both institutions are looking forward to the many fruitful exchanges that will come from leveraging the extensive resources and networks at Harvard and the European Parliament.“This opportunity absolutely underscores CES’ core mission,” said Sarah Delude, a CES staffer who took part in writing the terms of this new agreement. “We are thrilled to provide Harvard students with a practical behind-the-scenes look into legislative processes within the European Parliament, while on campus we look forward to learning from ALDE’s policy experts as they engage with the Harvard community and create new transatlantic dialogues.”last_img read more

Vermin welcome Christmas

first_imgStudents clad in ugly sweaters and Santa hats will flock to Carroll Hall tonight from 6 to 10 p.m. for the annual Carroll Christmas. “It’s a great, festive time to get in the Christmas spirit,” Carroll Christmas commissioner junior Mike Weiss said. Weiss said the event includes a performance from the Glee Club, a tree lighting ceremony with a 17-foot tree, pictures with Santa, free food and much more. Weiss said he is most looking forward to the annual cookie contest, which will take place at 8 p.m. “For the past two years I’ve been in the picture … and I missed the cookie contest both years,” Weiss said. “One of the R.A.’s moms has won it for three years in a row, and I’m dying to eat these award-winning cookies.” The trek to Carroll will be easier this year, thanks to funding from the Student Union Board (SUB) for a horse and carriage to take students from the LaFortune Student Center to Carroll Hall between 6 and 8 p.m. Carroll SUB commissioner, sophomore Ethan Montemayor, said the carriage rides will be a big draw, but the walk to Carroll will be equally as pleasant. “The path will be lined with luminaries, so it is a very pretty walk on a nice December evening,” Montemayor said. Also new this year will be a service project that visitors can complete during the event, Weiss said. “It is in conjunction with another club,” Weiss said, “and it is writing letters to soldiers abroad or people in underdeveloped countries.” Because Carroll is such a small dorm, everyone pitched in to help with their signature event, Weiss said. “Everyone has been downstairs, decorating every night,” Weiss said. “It’s a big community-building event.” Montemayor said the willingness of all the Vermin to set up the event makes Carroll Christmas so successful. “Everyone’s been pitching in a bunch,” he said. “It’s really nice to see all years here at Carroll, from freshmen to seniors, all pulling for this event to happen.” Montemayor said the multiple contributions from dorm residents has made the decorations quite impressive. “The halls are decked,” he said. In addition to decorating, the men of Carroll also took shifts to publicize the event. “I would say half the dorm signs up for a shift to hand out fliers and candy canes outside both dining halls Thursday and Friday afternoon,” Weiss said. Weiss said the men of Carroll are very excited for their signature event. “It’s the week we all look forward to, despite the fact that everyone has finals and all sorts of papers due in the next two weeks,” he said. Montemayor said he is expecting a large turnout for the event. “It’s a great time to come out, have a bit of a walk, meet some great people, have some food, have some cookies, take a picture with Santa, listen to the glee club — you can’t go wrong,” he said.last_img read more
