Three-dimensional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Fossils Across Tax...

By: B. Manz; M. Aberhan; O. Hampe; D. Mietchen; C. Neumann; B. Mohr; F. Volke

Description: Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering (IBMT), 66386 St. Ingbert, Germany. The visibility of life forms in the fossil record is largely determined by the extent to which they were mineralised at the time of their death. In addition to mineral structures, many fossils nonetheless contain detectable amounts of residual water or organic molecules, the analysis of which has become an integral part of current palaeontological research. ...

By: D. J. Burdige; R. C. Zimmerman; H. M. Dierssen

Description: Department of Marine Sciences and Geography, University of Connecticut, 1080 Shennecossett Road, Groton, CT 06340, USA. Regions of milky white seas or whitings periodically occur to the west of Andros Island along the Great Bahama Bank where the bottom sediment consists of fine-grained aragonite mud. We present comprehensive measurements of inherent optical properties within a whiting patch and discuss the potential for monitoring the frequency, extent, ...

By: C. S. Law; R. C. Upstill-goddard; G. Uher; A. Stubbins

Description: School of Marine Science and Technology, Newcastle University, UK. Carbon monoxide (CO) apparent quantum yields (AQYs) are reported for a suite of riverine, estuarine and sea water samples, spanning a range of coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM) sources, diagenetic histories, and concentrations (absorption coefficients). CO AQYs were highest for high CDOM riverine samples and almost an order of magnitude lower for low CDOM coastal seawater samples....

By: A. J. Underwood; M. G. Chapman; J. J. Cruz; T. J. Tolhurst

Description: Centre for Research on Ecological Impacts of Coastal Cities, Marine Ecology Laboratories A11, University of Sydney, NSW 2006, Australia. Various methods have been used to remove organisms from sediments to investigate structure and function of faunal assemblages in intertidal habitats. Nevertheless, little is known about how these treatments affect properties of the sediments themselves, although changing these properties may cause changes in the assembl...

Description: Institute for Earth Sciences, University of Graz, Heinrichstrasse 26, 8010, Graz, Austria. Climate change has an unknown impact on tropical cyclones and the Asian monsoon. Herein we present a sequence of fossil shell beds from the shallow-marine Maniyara Fort Formation (Kachcch Basin) as a recorder of tropical cyclone activity along the NW Indian coast during the late Oligocene warming period (~ 27–24 Ma). Proxy data providing information about the atmos...

By: D. Paillard; B. Dubrulle; C. Herbert

Description: Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement, IPSL, CEA-CNRS-UVSQ, UMR 8212, Gif-sur-Yvette, France. Nonlinear feedbacks in the Earth System provide mechanisms that can prove very useful in understanding complex dynamics with relatively simple concepts. For example, the temperature and the ice cover of the planet are linked in a positive feedback which gives birth to multiple equilibria for some values of the solar constant: fully ice-covered...

Description: Marine Ecosystem Department, Space Oceanography Division, CLS Ramonville, 8-10 rue Hermès, 31520, France. The development of the ecosystem approach and models for the management of ocean marine resources requires easy access to standard validated data sets of historical catch data for the main exploited species. They are used to measure the impact of biomass removal by fisheries and to evaluate the models outputs, while the use of a standard data set fac...

By: R. E. Austin; J. L. Heitman; M. J. Vepraskas

Description: Department of Soil Science, North Carolina State University, Box 7619, Raleigh, NC 27695-7619, USA. Hydropedology is well positioned to address contemporary issues resulting from climate change. We propose a six-step process by which digital, field-scale maps will be produced to show where climate change impacts will be greatest for two land uses: a) home sites using septic systems, and b) wetlands. State and federal laws have defined critical water tabl...

By: U. Scherer; E. Zehe; U. Ehret; A. Kleidon

Description: Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Hans-Knöll-Str. 10, 07745 Jena, Germany. The organization of drainage basins shows some reproducible phenomena, as exemplified by self-similar fractal river network structures and typical scaling laws, and these have been related to energetic optimization principles, such as minimization of stream power, minimum energy expenditure or maximum access. Here we describe the organization and dynamics of drainage syst...
