Pétrologie et géochimie des basaltes de Murta : une éruption sous-glaciaire dans les Andes patagoniennes (46° lat. S.), Chili. Relation avec la subduction de la ride du Chili

first_imgThe Holocene Murta basalts represent a small volume monogenetic centre located in the northern Patagonian Andes at the latitude of the Chile Triple Junction. These basalts show morphological evidence of subglacial eruption. They are locally porphyritic with large plagioclase feldspar, clinopyroxene and olivine megacrysts. The major- and trace-element concentrations, REE: patterns, and isotopic data, distinguish them clearly from the other Holocene are basalts or the Palaeocene back-are lavas. Their asthenospheric signature is in accordance with a geodynamic context characterised, since the Miocene, by the subduction of the Chile Ridge below the South American Plate and the progressive development of a slab window.last_img read more

Origin of freshwater and polynya water in the Arctic Ocean halocline in summer 2007

first_imgExtremely low summer sea-ice coverage in the Arctic Ocean in 2007 allowed extensive sampling and a wide quasi-synoptic hydrographic and δ18O dataset could be collected in the Eurasian Basin and the Makarov Basin up to the Alpha Ridge and the East Siberian continental margin. With the aim of determining the origin of freshwater in the halocline, fractions of river water and sea-ice meltwater in the upper 150 m were quantified by a combination of salinity and δ18O in the Eurasian Basin. Two methods, applying the preformed phosphate concentration (PO*) and the nitrate-to-phosphate ratio (N/P), were compared to further differentiate the marine fraction into Atlantic and Pacific-derived contributions. While PO*-based assessments systematically underestimate the contribution of Pacific-derived waters, N/P-based calculations overestimate Pacific-derived waters within the Transpolar Drift due to denitrification in bottom sediments at the Laptev Sea continental margin. Within the Eurasian Basin a west to east oriented front between net melting and production of sea-ice is observed. Outside the Atlantic regime dominated by net sea-ice melting, a pronounced layer influenced by brines released during sea-ice formation is present at about 30–50 m water depth with a maximum over the Lomonosov Ridge. The geographically distinct definition of this maximum demonstrates the rapid release and transport of signals from the shelf regions in discrete pulses within the Transpolar Drift. The ratio of sea-ice derived brine influence and river water is roughly constant within each layer of the Arctic Ocean halocline. The correlation between brine influence and river water reveals two clusters that can be assigned to the two main mechanisms of sea-ice formation within the Arctic Ocean. Over the open ocean or in polynyas at the continental slope where relatively small amounts of river water are found, sea-ice formation results in a linear correlation between brine influence and river water at salinities of about 32–34. In coastal polynyas in the shallow regions of the Laptev Sea and southern Kara Sea, sea-ice formation transports river water into the shelf’s bottom layer due to the close proximity to the river mouths. This process therefore results in waters that form a second linear correlation between brine influence and river water at salinities of about 30–32. Our study indicates which layers of the Arctic Ocean halocline are primarily influenced by sea-ice formation in coastal polynyas and which layers are primarily influenced by sea-ice formation over the open ocean. Accordingly we use the ratio of sea-ice derived brine influence and river water to link the maximum in brine influence within the Transpolar Drift with a pulse of shelf waters from the Laptev Sea that was likely released in summer 2005.last_img read more

String Cheese Ends Ski Town Tour With Old-School Three-Night Run In Nevada [Photos]

first_imgString Cheese Incident finished up the last run of their intimate Winter Carnival 2017 Roots Revival tour this weekend with three nights at the Crystal Bay Club in Crystal Bay, Nevada. I think we can all agree that this tour has been something special for fans and musicians alike, letting Cheese play the small ski-town venues that helped the shape the band as we know it today and giving fans a rare chance to catch the full band in a really intimate setting (plus, many of us can agree that an ideal day involves hitting the slopes in the morning and seeing some our favorite musicians at night).Rather than stalling out, String Cheese Incident consistently heated up throughout this final run, ending the tour with a bang at last night’s performance in Nevada. Friday’s performance was a heater, hinting to fans who made these Crystal Bay shows that they were in for an old-school Cheese showing for this final weekend with rarities “Remington Ride” and “Deal” landing during the first set as well as “Indian Creek” opening a show for the first time since 2002.Saturday night kept up this energy, and fans were buzzing to see how the weekend would continue to unfold. Again, String Cheese was really tapping into the “Roots Revival” theme of the tour with a first set chock full of bust outs, including the first time “Eat My Dust” has been performed since mid-2015, followed by “Walls of Time,” a Peter Rowan & Bill Monroe cover that hadn’t been seen since summer of last year until it worked it’s way back into their setlist rotation at the Fox Theatre in Boulder earlier in the tour, and “Late In The Evening” sung by Michael Travis, to name a few. Plus, second set ended on a cover of the Talking Head’s “Nothing But Flowers,” and the boys brought out Bob Dylan’s “The Mighty Quinn” for their encore, getting the crowd amped for the tour’s final night.Thus we arrive at last night’s final performance, and String Cheese Incident tour down the house. With the show kicking off with “Lester Had A Coconut,” the crowd was beyond primed when “Resume Man” was busted out as the second song in the first set, marking the first time the tune has been played since November of 2014. “Dudley’s Kitchen” followed, solidifying the final first set of the tour as something special.The second set was similarly fiery, with “Dirk” kicking things off before segueing into a slowed down “Sand Dollar.” The new Billy tune off their upcoming album Believe called “Flying,” which live debuted in Telluride last week made it’s way into the second set, already beginning to feel more solid as it makes it’s way into Cheese’s live rotation. To close out second set, Cheese ended with a “Rollover” sandwich, one of the best renditions of the song in recent years, which house “Cold Sweat” and a fat extended jam within it, before closing out the show with a final encore of crowd favorite, “Jellyfish.”You can check out setlists from Cheese’s tour-closing weekend below, as well as an extensive gallery of Saturday night’s festivities, courtesy of Michael Pegram Photography. If you’re getting a hankering for Cheese before they hit the road again later in the year, you can pre-order their new album, Believe, on Pledge Music here, and get a bunch of goodies along with the new album, including an unreleased live show from the tail end of their Fall 1999 tour.Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Crystal Bay Club | Crystal Bay, NV | 3/17/17Set One: Indian Creek, Way Back Home > Joyful Sound, Think Of What You’ve Done, Remington Ride, Deal, Outside and Inside > SmileSet Two: Let’s Go Outside, These Waves > Djibouti Bump, Rhythm of the Road > Sirens, 45th of November > Rivertrance > Desert DawnEncore: Sweet SpotSetlist: String Cheese Incident | Crystal Bay Club | Crystal Bay, NV | 3/18/17Set One: Miss Brown’s Teahouse, The Road Home, Cottonmouth, Eat My Dust, Walls of Time, Late In The Evening, Falling Through The Cracks > BeautifulSet Two: Just One Story > Search, Until The Music’s Over, My One And Only, Hi Ho No Show, Turn This Around > Nothing But FlowersEncore: The Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo)Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Crystal Bay Club | Crystal Bay, NV | 3/19/17Set One: Lester Had A Coconut, Resume Man, Dudley’s Kitchen, Can’t Wait Another Day, So Far From Home, Betray The Dark, Don’t Let Go, Colorado Bluebird SkySet Two: Dirk, Sand Dollar, Restless Wind, Get Tight, Flying, Close Your Eyes, Rollover > Cold Sweat > Delicious Booty Jam > RolloverEncore: Jellyfish Photo: Michael Pegram Load remaining imagescenter_img Photo: Michael Pegramlast_img read more

Chilean and Colombian Armies Agree to Collaborate on Personnel Training

first_imgBy Dialogo May 23, 2012 In Bogotá on an official visit to Colombia, the commander-in-chief of the Chilean Army, General Juan Miguel Fuente-Alba, discussed with his counterpart Sergio Mantilla the advantages of intensifying the exchange of existing experiences in areas of mutual interest, such as the professional development of their personnel in the areas of education, instruction and training, comparing planning procedures, and unit utilization in the event of emergencies and natural disasters. On this occasion, Fuente-Alba requested cooperation from General Sergio Mantilla for the training of helicopter pilots, while offering the South American country slots for training Colombian personnel at the Chilean Army’s High Mountain School. During his six-day visit from May 14 to 19, General Fuente-Alba visited Larandia Military Fort, the 25th Aviation Brigade, and the National Training Center, a unit located at Tolemaida Military Fort and responsible for training career soldiers and members of Special Forces, paratroopers, and mountain units. In recognition of his contribution to rapprochement and collaboration with the Colombian Military, the Chilean commander received the José María Córdoba Order of Military Merit in the grade of Grand Cross.last_img read more
