Is Shrinking Sea Ice Behind Chilly Spring? First it was the fault of Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog who mistakenly forecasted a quick end to winter. Now climate scientists are saying that Arctic sea ice—or the lack of it—is a driving force behind the Northern Hemisphere's unseasonably cold spring. As Northern Hemisphere temperatures remain below normal more than a week into the official start of spring, a team of meteorologists and climate scientists are pointing to recent research that suggests sea ice cover is a likely culprit. Recent imaging from the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center showed a historic minimum in Arctic ice cover last fall, and current data reveals that sea ice cover—which recently reached its maximum for the year—is at its sixth lowest extent in the satellite record.

The seven Lotuses are the seven cakras of the Tantric tradition, descending and ascending from Mind (Sahasradala, Ajna, Visuddha, Anahata) that take up Life through Life in Force (Manipura, Swadhisthana) down to Life involved in Matter (Muladhara). -- Sri Aurobindo (from the Hour of God, p. 27) Hydrologic Cycle and Interactions. Ground Water and Surface Water A Single Resource--USGS Circular 1139 The Hydrologic Cycle and Interactions of Ground Water and Surface Water The hydrologic cycle describes the continuous movement of water above, on, and below the surface of the Earth.

Hydrologic Cycle and Interactions

The water on the Earth's surface--surface water--occurs as streams, lakes, and wetlands, as well as bays and oceans. Surface water also includes the solid forms of water-- snow and ice. The water below the surface of the Earth primarily is ground water, but it also includes soil water. The hydrologic cycle commonly is portrayed by a very simplified diagram that shows only major transfers of water between continents and oceans, as in Figure 1. Figure 1.

8.7 Million Species Run Spaceship Earth and Our Life Support System « Stephen Leahy, International Environmental Journalist

We’re unconcerned about the ongoing loss of 200 species a day since we fail to realize they are our life support system. And we don’t know how many or which species are needed to keep things running. There is metaphor in the article to make that clearer I hope. We are not even close to coming to grips with this issue. – Stephen. Requirements. Profit motive has no conscience.

The ‘Horribly Mutated’ Seafood in The Gulf of Mexico

Fish, shrimp, and crabs are missing eyes and suffering strange deformities, according to a harrowing new report — yet the FDA insists the seafood’s safe to eat. Shrimp born without eyes, clawless crabs, and fish with visible tumors are among the “horrible mutated”marine animals found in the waters off the Gulf Coast, according to a new report from Al Jazeera. Scientists say the problem is a side effect of the April 2010 explosion of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which killed 11 people and spilled at least 4.9 million barrels of oil into the ocean. Here, a brief guide to the damage: “The fishermen have never seen anything like this,” Dr Jim Cowan told Al Jazeera. Gulf of Mexico fishermen, scientists and seafood processors have told Al Jazeera they are finding disturbing numbers of mutated shrimp, crab and fish that they believe are deformed by chemicals released during BP’s 2010 oil disaster.

Desh Shanti was caught dumping oil near Iranian waters on Tuesday after ignoring official communications from concerned authorities. The spill caused an oil slick of around 10 miles, according to the Marine Emergency Mutual Aid Centre (MEMAC). Bahrain is monitoring the situation after it received a satellite view of the oil slick and could increase safety measures depending on an investigation, said Supreme Council for Environment pollution control from the source unit head Hanan Haidar. It has requested all concerned bodies to be on alert, including the coastguard, ports, and energy and desalination stations. 19-Year-Old Develops Ocean Cleanup Array That Could Remove 7,250,000 Tons Of Plastic From Oceans. 19-year-old Boyan Slat has unveiled plans to create an Ocean Cleanup Array that could remove 7,250,000 tons of plastic waste from the world’s oceans.

19-Year-Old Develops Ocean Cleanup Array That Could Remove 7,250,000 Tons Of Plastic From Oceans

The device consists of an anchored network of floating booms and processing platforms that could be dispatched to garbage patches around the world. Instead of moving through the ocean, the array would span the radius of a garbage patch, acting as a giant funnel. The angle of the booms would force plastic in the direction of the platforms, where it would be separated from plankton, filtered and stored for recycling. At school, Boyan Slat launched a project that analyzed the size and amount of plastic particles in the ocean’s garbage patches. His final paper went on to win several prizes, including Best Technical Design 2012 at the Delft University of Technology. Petroleum-Degrading Enzymes: Bioremediation and New Prospects.

Ocean acidification, the lesser-known twin of climate change, threatens to scramble marine life on a scale almost too big to fathom. NORMANBY ISLAND, Papua New Guinea — Katharina Fabricius plunged from a dive boat into the Pacific Ocean of tomorrow. She kicked through blue water until she spotted a ceramic tile attached to the bottom of a reef. A year earlier, the ecologist from the Australian Institute of Marine Science had placed this small square near a fissure in the sea floor where gas bubbles up from the earth. She hoped the next generation of baby corals would settle on it and take root. Fabricius yanked a knife from her ankle holster, unscrewed the plate and pulled it close. Instead of a brilliant new coral reef, what sprouted here resembled a slimy lake bottom.

Current passing through a magnet induces a torque and counter-torque in local space, relative to a rotationally-constant magnetic field For the past 20 years, or possibly since the time of Newton, strange and unexplained patterns have been appearing in English or European fields (see time2012x or time2012y). A few of those have appeared recently in other countries such as Mexico or the USA (see www.earthfiles.com or Hopewell 2012).
