ULF Pc5-6 magnetic activity in the polar cap as observed along a geomagnetic meridian in Antarctica

first_imgLatitudinal and diurnal distributions of spectral power and spatial coherency parameters of the geomagnetic variations in the Pc5-6 (1–6 mHz) frequency range are analyzed using data of magnetometer stations in Antarctica. The available stations give the possibility to form a latitude chain along the geomagnetic meridian 40°E stretching from magnetic latitude 69°S to 86°S. Long-period ULF activity at polar cap latitudes is characterized by lower amplitudes and wider spectra with lower central frequencies as compared with typical auroral Pc5 pulsations. The meridional distribution of average Pc5-6 spectral power is nonmonotonic and has a minimum near 80°. In general, the low-frequency broadband ULF activities in the polar cap and at auroral latitudes seem to be decoupled. This long-period ULF activity in the polar cap could be an image of wave activity in the tail lobes or the manifestation of turbulent component of the ionospheric convection at very high latitudes, but this requires further investigation.last_img read more

Hovis fights emissions with all-electric lorries

first_imgHovis has introduced electric vehicles to its fleet in a move that would help prepare the “business for a lower carbon future”, according to Nish Kankiwala, CEO of Hovis.Claiming to be the first fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) firm to roll out all-electric lorries, the move is part of Hovis’ long-term carbon footprint reduction efforts. The company is also preparing for imminent emission-based policy changes in London.Hovis will be deploying two FUSO eCanter vehicles – the third generation of the world’s first all-electric light lorries – for an initial two-year period. At first, the battery-powered trucks will be used to distribute goods across London and surrounding areas.The firm said its latest development would also support Transport for London’s plans to roll out an Ultra-Low Emission Zone next year; an area in central London within which most vehicles will need to meet updated exhaust emission standards, or pay charges.One of the very first UK businesses to adopt FUSO eCanter vehicles, Hovis delivers around 1.3 million loaves every week day throughout the UK and Ireland, with only two other UK companies – courier service DPD and logistics firm Wincanton – adopting the emission-free lorries, which are also significantly quieter than their diesel counterparts.As part of its effort to become a more energy-efficient business, Hovis said it has already removed two million-worth of road miles through improved vehicle routing and optimised load fill.last_img read more

Villa I Tatti marks the 50th anniversary of the 1966 River Arno flood with an online exhibition

first_imgExactly 50 years ago, on Nov. 4, 1966, a devastating flood swept through the city of Florence, destroying and causing significant damage to much of the city’s artistic patrimony.As soon as news of the disaster reached the United States, concerned scholars of Italian art and culture leapt into action to help save the precious artistic heritage of Florence and other cities ravaged by floods, joining forces to create the Committee to Rescue Italian Art (CRIA). Amidst the turmoil and with a deep sense of urgency, they organized both a vast fund-raising campaign and the shipment to Italy of emergency conservation materials along with a team of specialists to assess the situation and begin long-range planning for the recovery. Chaired by Jacqueline Kennedy, the Committee raised money through direct mail requests, ads, special exhibits of Italian art, fashion shows and cocktail parties, in addition to video appeals by famous figures such as Ted Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor.Following the devastating flood of ’66, Villa I Tatti became the Florentine Headquarters of CRIA, a task force made up of scholars anxious to preserve Florence’s precious artistic heritage. This online exhibition explores the valiant efforts of CRIA during the aftermath of the flood, and examines I Tatti’s central role in the recovery.Visit the Exhibitionlast_img read more
