Ciner A. The rapid warming observed in the western Antarctic Peninsula gives rise to a fast disintegration of ice shelves and thinning and retreat of marine-terminating continental glaciers, which is likely to raise global sea levels in the near future. In order to understand the contemporary changes in context and to provide constraints for hindcasting models, it is important to understand the Late Quaternary history of the region. Here, we build on previous work on the deglacial history of the western Antarctic Peninsula and we present four new cosmogenic Be exposure ages from Horseshoe Island in Marguerite Bay, which has been suggested as a former location of very fast ice stream retreat. Four samples collected from erratic pink granite boulders at an altitude of similar to 80 m above sea level yielded ages that range between As in other studies on Antarctic erratics, we have chosen to report the youngest erratic age 9.
The deglacial history of NW Alexander Island, Antarctica, from surface exposure dating
OHA partners with the Institute for Disease Modeling at the University of Washington to create models that it uses to plan and estimate hospital capacity. The most recent model, published Aug. All told, Oregonians had their blood tested. Cieslak says that once you account for chance and variability, the model estimates are consistent with the potential range of case rates found in this study. Outbreaks and super-spreading events have occurred in several counties.
Cosmogenic Be surface exposure dating and glacier reconstruction for the Last Glacial Maximum in the Quemuqu Valley, western.
We determine the long-term slip rate of the southern San Andreas Fault in the southeastern Indio Hills using Be and Al isotopes to date an offset alluvial fan surface. A total of 26 quartz-rich cobbles from three different fan surfaces were collected and dated. The tight cluster of nuclide concentrations from 19 samples out of 20 from the offset fan surface implies a simple exposure history, negligible prior exposure and erosion, and yields an age of This result puts new constraints on the slip rate of the San Jacinto and on the Eastern California Shear Zone for the last 35 kyr.
Our study shows that more sites along the major faults of southern California need to be targeted to better constrain the slip rates over different timescales. Aller au contenu principal. Fr En.

What all these isotopes have in common is that they are normally absent from rocks that are shielded from cosmic rays. They belong be10 two categories. There are the cosmogenic noble gases, which are stable, and the cosmogenic burial, what are radioactive. Each of these have different applications. So if we measure the concentration CLIMATE in atoms per gram of, say, quartz, and if we know the production rate P , in atoms per gram per year, then we can simply calculate the age by dividing the concentration by the band rate: To understand this climate, it is useful to imagine one in the place of a rock particle under an eroding nuclide.
As the burial approaches the surface, it sees an exponentially increasing cosmic band intensity and cosmogenic nuclide production rate.

This award supports a project to determine if the West Antarctic Ice Sheet WAIS has thinned and collapsed in the past few million years, and if so, when and how frequently this occurred. The principal aim is to identify climatic conditions or thresholds in the climate system that led to ice-sheet collapse in the past, and assess the threat of climate change to vulnerable ice sheets in the future.

We test the two models using cosmogenic Be surface exposure dating of erratic boulders and glacially eroded bedrock from the three areas.

Impact of glacial isostatic adjustment on cosmogenic surface-exposure dating
Millions of Americans have been struggling financially since the start of the COVID pandemic, and while unemployment has reached record levels, not everyone has lost a job. It’s these people who President Trump is specifically seeking to help. Earlier in the month, the president signed an executive order calling for a payroll tax deferment starting Sept.
Trump had been asking to see a payroll tax break in a second stimulus deal, but lawmakers notably excluded it — so the president decided to take matters into his own hands.

Comparative numerical surface exposure-age dating Be and Schmidt hammer of an early-Holocene rock avalanche at Alstadfjellet, Valldalen, southern Norway. T1 – Comparative numerical surface exposure-age dating Be and Schmidt hammer of an early-Holocene rock avalanche at Alstadfjellet, Valldalen, southern Norway. N2 – Application of calibrated Schmidt-hammer surface-exposure dating SHD to the run-out debris of a rock avalanche at Alstadfjellet, Valldalen, southern Norway, has yielded ages that are consistent within uncertainties with terrestrial cosmogenic 10Be surface-exposure ages for the debris.
Three SHD calibration equations were generated based on different correction factors for the 10Be ages from the moraines. The SHD ages In addition, the former ages have a precision of 1. This work demonstrates that calibrated SHD can be of comparable accuracy to and may have improved precision over 10Be ages, and should be given greater consideration and prominence in Quaternary dating studies.

However, assessing if and how rocky coasts will respond to changes in marine conditions is difficult due to current limitations of monitoring and modelling. Here, we measured cosmogenic 10 Be concentrations across a sandstone shore platform in North Yorkshire, UK, to model the changes in coastal erosion within the last 7 kyr and for the first time quantify the relative long-term eros0ive contribution of landward cliff retreat, and down-wearing and stripping of rock from the shore platform.
The results suggest that the cliff has been retreating at a steady rate of 4.

This document is for CDC country offices, ministries of health, sub-national public health authorities, and other implementing partners in non-US settings. While select adaptations may be relevant for any jurisdiction, the document focuses on adaptations that might be especially useful in low- and middle-income countries. Contact tracing is a key component of controlling transmission of infectious diseases.
Contact tracing for the current COVID pandemic however, is distinct from that undertaken for other diseases e. As a result, contact tracing programs will need to prioritize activities to ensure that human and financial resources are utilized most effectively. Necessary adaptations will depend not only on setting, but also will need to adapt over time, to best suit the current epidemiology of the outbreak. Measures that are feasible when there is one case or even one cluster of cases, may not be feasible once hundreds or thousands of new cases are reported a day.
The following document outlines considerations for modifying contact tracing protocols to maximize efficient use of limited resources. These adaptations however have trade-offs. In some settings and under some circumstances, contact tracing may not be sufficient to contain transmission. This is particularly true in settings of widespread community transmission, and of particular concern for this pandemic given the role of asymptomatic transmission.
In such as context, national or sub-national stay-at-home orders may need to be reissued, such that the whole population will be asked to quarantine except for essential workers. Contact tracing is the focus of this document. However, contact tracing programs cannot operate in isolation.
Cosmogenic exposure dating reveals limited long-term variability in erosion of a rocky coastline

Surface exposure dating of glacial geomorphological features S and SE of the Cook Ice Cap has previously been done using in situcosmogenic Cl [1, 2].
Surface exposure dating is a collection of geochronological techniques for estimating the length of time that a rock has been exposed at or near Earth’s surface. Surface exposure dating is used to date glacial advances and retreats , erosion history, lava flows, meteorite impacts, rock slides, fault scarps , cave development, and other geological events. It is most useful for rocks which have been exposed for between 10 years and 30,, years [ citation needed ].
The most common of these dating techniques is Cosmogenic radionuclide dating [ citation needed ]. Earth is constantly bombarded with primary cosmic rays , high energy charged particles — mostly protons and alpha particles. These particles interact with atoms in atmospheric gases, producing a cascade of secondary particles that may in turn interact and reduce their energies in many reactions as they pass through the atmosphere.
This cascade includes a small fraction of hadrons, including neutrons.
