The grant enables Scottish voluntary sector organisations working with vulnerable children affected by drug misuse and with an annual income of under £500,000 to register with In Kind Direct for a subsidised rate of £30 plus VAT. They will also receive £75 of discount vouchers, which can be exchanged for around £750 worth of goods.

Investigating changes in basal conditions of Variegated Glacier prior to and during its 1982–1983 surge

first_imgThe Variegated Glacier (Alaska) is known to surge periodically after a sufficient amount of cumulative mass balance is reached, but this observation is difficult to link with changes in the basal conditions. Here, using a 10-year dataset, consisting in surface topography and surface velocity observations along a flow line for 25 dates, we have reconstructed the evolution of the basal conditions prior and during the 1982–1983 surge. The model solves the full-Stokes problem along the central flow line using the finite element method. For the 25 dates of the dataset, the basal friction parameter distribution is inferred using the inverse method proposed by Arthern and Gudmundsson (2010). This method is here slightly modified by incorporating a regularisation term in the cost function to avoid short wave length changes in the friction parameter. Our results indicate that dramatic changes in the basal conditions occurred between 1973 to 1983. Prior to the surge, periodical changes can be observed between winter and summer, with a regular increase of the sliding from 1973 to 1982. During the surge, the basal friction decreased dramatically and an area of very low friction moved from the upper part of the glacier to its terminus. Using a more complex friction law, these changes in basal sliding are then interpreted in terms of basal water pressure. It confirms that dramatic changes took place in the subglacial drainage system of Variegated Glacier, moving from a relatively efficient drainage system prior to the surge to an in efficient one during the surge. By reconstructing the water pressure evolution at the base of the glacier it is possible to infer realistic scenarios for the hydrological history leading to the occurrence of a surge.last_img read more

They head into Maxwell Dworkin during shopping week at Harvard. Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer For one week at the beginning of each semester, students at Harvard can take any class they can fit into their busy days. Many take full advantage of the sampling opportunity known as shopping week.One day before the registration deadline, Emma van der Terrell, M.T.S. candidate ’18, had locked down her first semester at Harvard Divinity School. Originally planning to shop six classes on top of a requirement and a language elective, her advisor suggested that juggling eight classes might be ambitious for a first-year graduate student. Though Emma eventually settled on four, she is still mulling over that fifth class.Senior Thomas Hewing ’17 still had some decisions to make by the deadline, but said he’s got his four classes “pretty settled.” Mostly done with his requirements, Thomas is anticipating a relatively easy fall, though he still shopped seven classes.— By John Baglione/Harvard Correspondent 9Virgilio Almeida, the CAPES distinguished visiting professor, teaches “The Internet: Governance and Power.” The course covers cyberspace governance. Jon Chase/Harvard Staff Photographer 14Ann Blair, Carl H. Pforzheimer University Professor, discusses religion and Raphael’s “Disputation of the Sacrament” during “Reason and Faith in the West” in Emerson Hall. This course uses a historical perspective to examine one of the central themes in the Western intellectual tradition: the desire to reconcile rational philosophy with religious and biblical authority.

After graduation, Jerry proudly served his country in the US Army from 1966-1968 and attended Barber School. He was a Barber for more than 40 years. He also worked as a custodian at St. Mary’s School. When his children were young, he was a youth football coach and a youth girls’ softball coach.
