Responses of sub-ice platelet layer thickening rate and frazil-ice concentration to variations in ice-shelf water supercooling in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica

first_imgPersistent outflow of supercooled ice-shelf water (ISW) from beneath McMurdo Ice Shelf creates a rapidly growing sub-ice platelet layer (SIPL) with a unique crystallographic structure under the sea ice in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. A vertically modified frazil-ice-laden ISW plume model that encapsulates the combined non-linear effects of the vertical distributions of supercooling and frazil concentration on frazil-ice growth is applied to McMurdo Sound and is shown to reproduce the observed ISW supercooling and SIPL distributions. Using this model, the dependence of the SIPL thickening rate and depth-averaged frazil-ice concentration on ISW supercooling in McMurdo Sound is investigated and found to be predominantly controlled by the vertical distribution of frazil concentration. The complex dependence on frazil concentration highlights the need to improve frazil-ice observations within the sea-ice–ocean boundary layer in McMurdo Sound.last_img read more

The role of atmospheric circulation patterns in driving recent changes in indices of extreme seasonal precipitation across Arctic Fennoscandia

first_imgExtreme precipitation events (EPEs) have a major impact across Arctic Fennoscandia (AF). Here we examine the spatial variability of seasonal 50-year trends in three EPEs across AF for 1968–2017, using daily precipitation data from 46 meteorological stations, and analyse how these are related to contemporaneous changes in the principal atmospheric circulation patterns that impact AF climate. Positive trends in seasonal wet-day precipitation (PRCPTOT) are widespread across AF in all seasons except autumn. Spring (autumn) has the most widespread negative (positive) trends in consecutive dry days (CDD). There is less seasonal dependence for trends in consecutive wet days (CWDs), but the majority of the stations show an increase. Clear seasonal differences in the circulation pattern that exerted most influence on these AF EPE trends exist. In spring, PRCPTOT and CDD are most affected by the Scandinavian pattern at more than half the stations while it also has a marked influence on CWD. The East Atlantic/Western Russia pattern generally has the greatest influence on the most station EPE trends in summer and autumn, yet has no effect during either spring or winter. In winter, the dominant circulation pattern across AF varies more between the different EPEs, with the North Atlantic Oscillation, Polar/Eurasia and East Atlantic patterns all exerting a major influence. There are distinct geographical distributions to the dominant pattern affecting particular EPEs in some seasons, especially winter, while in others there is no discernible spatial relationship.last_img read more

first_img99, was born on Armistice Day, November 11, 1918 and passed away on January 17, 2018. A lifelong resident of Bayonne, Ed graduated from Bayonne High School. He was drafted into the US Army in 1941. He trained in Texas and performed border patrol duties on the Rio Grande River. After the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941, Ed’s 77th Field Artillery Unit went to Casablanca, North Africa under the leadership of General Mark Clark to fight against Rommel’s tank corp. After forcing Rommel out of Africa, the invasion of Sicily followed for 38 days. The troops then crossed the Messina Strait and entered Reggio, Italy. For two years, he fought to take Naples, Foggia, Monte Cassino, Rome, Arno, Northern Apennines and Po Valley, ending in Bolzano. The US Army point system allowed soldiers with 85 points of service to be honorably discharged. Having earned 102 points, Ed enjoyed a flight home and was discharged on July 24, 1945. He returned to work at General Motors in Linden, NJ. In January 1948, he married Josephine Drozd. He attended night school at Vale School of Business and Rutgers University to earn his NJ Insurance Brokers License and maintained a home office. Ed retired from General Motors in 1974 with 37 years of service and continued his insurance business. He participated in local civic committees. He was also an active member of the United Auto Workers Retirees, Mt. Carmel Holy Name Society, Mt. Carmel Parish Council and the Marist Men’s Club where he initiated Sunday Night Bingo. Ed was predeceased by his wife, Josephine in June 2017. He is also predeceased by siblings, Stanley Suczewski and his wife Josephine, and Harriet Kaczka and her husband, Edward Kaczka. He is the father of Dr. Dorothy Filip Ed.D., Dr. Edward J. Suczewski M.D. and his wife Julie, Dr. Thomas J. Suczewski M.D. and his wife, Karen, Janice Suczewski, MBA and her husband, Roger Magid. Grandchildren include Dr. Zachary Filip M.D.; Edward A, Michael and Gregory Suczewski, Kathryn Kopacz and husband Kyle; Luke, Adam and Elizabeth Suczewski.

Brace’s set to re-open Welsh site

first_imgBrace’s Bakery has announced it will “grab hold of the reins” and reopen its Croespenmaen site, following a management shake-up.The family-run firm closed the 60,000sq ft production facility in February this year because of tough market conditions in the sliced-bread sector.The company said it was on course for 15% growth this year and would reopen the site near Crumlin to relieve pressure at its Rogerstone and Pen-y-Fan bakeries.Director Jonathan Brace said: “We’ve had a bit of a management reshuffle and some of the top people have gone. My brother [managing director Mark Brace] and I saw this as an opportunity to grab hold of the reins a little bit.He added the two other sites were very full and they felt the company needed to “reinvigorate the Croespenmaen site to get it back up and running”.He also said the firm previously considered selling the site, but its state-of-the-art equipment meant it was better to keep hold of it.Production is due to restart there by Christmas – the move follows a diversification for the business from sliced bread into the foodservice sector, supplying products to sandwich-makers.Managing director Mark Brace said: “I am very excited about the future, and while the marketplace is changing rapidly, we are seeing the efforts of our labour starting to bear fruit.“We see this as an opportunity to refocus our business and look carefully at the changing market trends and invent a few of our own, to give a long-term sustainable future to our loyal work force, who have performed admirably in these difficult business and market conditions.”Jonathan Brace said the firm hoped to gradually add to its current 280-strong workforce by increasing output at Croespenmaen, which he said was capable of baking around 6,500 loaves an hour with its two production lines.last_img read more
