Trésors photographiques de la Société de géographie Le programme de Civiale Aimé Civiale est en effet exemplaire de cette pratique. Ancien élève de l’École polytechnique, il met ses compétences au service de la photographie scientifique appliquée à la géographie du milieu montagnard. - 1er site météo pour Genève - prévisions à 12 jours professionnelles et gratuites Acceleration of snow melt in an Antarctic Peninsula ice core during the twentieth century : Nature Geoscience Over the past 50 years, warming of the Antarctic Peninsula has been accompanied by accelerating glacier mass loss and the retreat and collapse of ice shelves. A key driver of ice loss is summer melting; however, it is not usually possible to specifically reconstruct the summer conditions that are critical for determining ice melt in Antarctic. Here we reconstruct changes in ice-melt intensity and mean temperature on the northern Antarctic Peninsula since AD 1000 based on the identification of visible melt layers in the James Ross Island ice core and local mean annual temperature estimates from the deuterium content of the ice. During the past millennium, the coolest conditions and lowest melt occurred from about AD 1410 to 1460, when mean temperature was 1.6 °C lower than that of 1981–2000.

Portraits d'un Nouveau Monde Les premiers réfugiés climatiques français ? Le phénomène des réfugiés climatiques n'existe pas seulement au bout du monde. Avec le réchauffement climatique, la montée des eaux et des tempêtes de plus en plus fortes, les côtes françaises connaissent une érosion irrémédiable. Par précaution, certaines municipalités rasent des maisons trop proches de l'eau et dangereuses pour leurs habitants. Comet ISON Meteor Shower Comet ISON Meteor Shower April 19, 2013: Anticipation is building as Comet ISON plunges into the inner solar system for a close encounter with the sun in November 2013. Blasted at point-blank range by solar radiation, the sungrazer will likely become one of the finest comets in many years. When NASA's Swift spacecraft observed the comet in January 2013, it was still near the orbit of Jupiter, but already very active.

Antarctic ice melting 10 times faster than 600 years ago Updated Mon 15 Apr 2013, 11:10am AEST A report has found that the Antarctic summer ice melt is now occurring 10 times faster than it did 600 years ago. Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey and the Australian National University drilled a 360-metre ice core near the northern tip of the peninsula to to identify past temperatures. The ice core gave an extraordinary insight into the temperatures, revealing the coolest conditions, and the lowest melt, occurred six centuries ago. By comparison, it found temperatures now are 1.6 degrees Celsius higher, and the ice melt is 10 times as fast. The lead author of the report, Dr Nerilie Abram from the Australian National University, says the most rapid melt has occurred in the last 50 years.

1 Corinthians 1:10 New International Version 1Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, 2To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours: 3Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Thanksgiving 4I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— 6God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. 7Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
