The breeding biology of the black-bellied storm-petrel Fregetta tropica

first_imgThe breeding cycie and habits of the Black‐bellied Storm‐petrel are described from observations made over three seasons at Signy Island, South Orkney Islands. The species is strictly nocturnal on land and nests in stable scree slopes. With an estimated population of 100–200 pairs, Fregetta tropica is the rarest petrel breeding on the island. In general, the breeding cycle of F. tropica resembles that of Oceanites oceanicus. Birds usually arrive from mid‐November onward and return to the same nest and mate in successive seasons. The female is absent from the nest for a week or more before the egg is laid, during which time the male continues to visit the site. From ten laying dates, egg laying appears normally to begin during the last week in December, but evidence is given that, in 1966‐67, laying was delayed by heavy winter snow build‐up coupled with a late melt. The egg comprises 26 % of the body weight of the female. Incubation is by both sexes in alternate spells of three days, the whole period lasting 38–44 days. The chick is left alone in the nest by the parents almost immediately after hatching. Chick growth is described briefly and the effects of drift snow on development are discussed. The fledging periods of two chicks were 65 and 71 days, departure from the nest taking place in mid‐April. Measurements of 36 Signy Island birds show considerable variability but are similar to those from other breeding localities.last_img read more

Large simultaneous disturbances (LSDs) in the Antarctic ionosphere

A high frequency radio Doppler experiment was deployed in the Antarctic Peninsula region, centred on Argentine Islands (65°15′S, 64°16′W; L = 2.3), to investigate the morphology and sources of ionospheric disturbances. The experiment consisted of a three-transmitter dual frequency network which permits horizontal and vertical propagation velocities to be estimated over a north-south baseline of 200 km and an east-west baseline of 100 km. A new class of ionospheric disturbance has been observed, in the period range 10 min−1 h. These disturbances are characterised by unusually good correlation between perturbations on all available Doppler signals, but are apparently non—propagating and occur simultaneously at each reflection point. Several of these events display large (2 Hz at about 5 MHz transmitted frequency) Doppler shifts, thus we have labelled them Large Simultaneous Disturbances (LSDs). Criteria for identification of LSDs are established and the analysis of one event is described in detail. The occurrence statistics of the LSDs are presented, including their seasonal and diurnal distributions. There is no clear general relationship between LSDs and local geomagnetic field perturbations. However, examination of the magnetic indices AE and IRC indicates that there is a loose association between the occurrence and amplitude of LSDs and magnetic activity. Several possible mechanisms for the generation of LSDs at middle latitudes are reviewed. The most likely explanation is that high latitude electric fields penetrate to magnetic middle latitudes and drive the ionospheric plasma via the E × B drift. read more

Observations of the effects of DPY currents at sub-auroral latitudes

first_imgMagnetograms from Lerwick, Scotland and Halley, Antarctica are used to show that the effects of the DPY current system can frequently be detected at these sub-auroral observatories. It is found that the magnetic perturbations associated with the DPY current dominate any effects that may be caused by the dawn-dusk displacement of the DP2 current resulting from the imposition of the y-component of the interplanetary magnetic field, By. The magnitude of the DPY current effect appears to be directly related to that of By, which is contrary to results from stations within the polar cap. There is no apparent seasonal variation in the frequency with which DPY effects are seen at Halley and Lerwick.last_img read more

Modeling tidal currents beneath Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf and on the adjacent continental shelf: Their effect on mixing and transport

first_imgA depth-averaged tidal model has been applied to the southern Weddell Sea. The model domain covers the southern continental shelf, including the ocean cavity beneath Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf. Reasonable agreement with the available current meter data has been achieved. Our results confirm that in areas with shallow water and large topographic gradients, tidal oscillations with peak velocities up to 1 m s−1 play a significant role in the vertical mixing and transport of water masses. The estimated energy dissipation beneath Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf due to surface friction is 25 GW, approximately 1% of the world’s total tidal dissipation. Tidally induced Lagrangian residual currents converging at the ice front, an area of strong mixing, draw together water masses from the continental shelf and sub-ice shelf cavity. The model indicates that Lagrangian residual currents have fluxes of up to 250,000 m3 s−1, and speeds of over 5 cm s−1 along the ice front, with over 350,000 m3 s−1 being exchanged between the sub-ice shelf cavity and adjacent continental shelf. These currents are particularly efficient in ventilating the sub-ice shelf cavity within 150 km of Ronne Ice Front. Such strong tidal mixing will significantly modify the properties of water masses that flow through this region, particularly to the west of Berkner Island. The model predictions indicate that tidal processes strongly influence the oceanographic conditions in the vicinity of Ronne Ice Front. Shipborne observations along the ice front support many of the model predictions concerning the effect of tides on the hydrography.last_img read more

Role of antioxidant defense during different stages of preadult life cycle in European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis, Hubn.): diapause and metamorphosis

first_imgAntioxidant enzymes, total glutathione (GSH), and ascorbic acid (ASA) were determined in whole body homogenates of nondiapausing larvae, diapausing larvae during the diapausing period (October, December, and February), and in pupae emerged from both diapausing and nondiapausing larvae of the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis, Hubn., Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). The activities of catalase, selenium nondependent glutathione peroxidase (GPx), and glutathione-S-transferase (GST), as well as the content of GSH and ASA, were found to vary throughout the larval diapause. Compared to diapausing larvae, nondiapausing larvae were higher in levels of catalose, GPx, GST, and dehydroascorbate reductase (DHAR) activity. GSH content was also increased. However, nondiapausing larvae contained less ASA than diapausing ones. Pupae had higher GPx and GST activity and an increased ASA content compared to larvae. The pupae emerged from nondiapausing larvae had higher GST, glutathione reductase (GR), and DHAR activities, but lower GPx activity and ASA content than those emerged from diapausing larvae. Correlation analysis revealed differences in the way the antioxidant level is equilibrated for a particular stage and developmental pattern. The results suggest that cellular antioxidants are involved in both the protection of cells and the regulation of redox levels during the pre-adult stages of Ostrinia nubilalis.last_img read more

Temporal and spatial metabolic rate variation in the Antarctic springtail Gomphiocephalus hodgsoni

first_imgSpatial and temporal environmental variation in terrestrial Antarctic ecosystems are known to impact species strongly at a local scale, but the ways in which organisms respond (e.g. physiologically, behaviourally) to such variation are poorly understood. Further, very few studies have attempted to assess inter-annual variability of such responses.Building on previous work demonstrating intra-seasonal variation in standard metabolic rate in the springtail Gomphiocephalus hodgsoni, we investigated variation in metabolic activity of G. hodgsoni across two austral summer periods at Cape Bird, Ross Island. We also examined the influence of spatial variation by comparing metabolic rates of G. hodgsoni at Cape Bird with those from two other isolated continental locations within Victoria Land (Garwood and Taylor Valleys). We found significant differences between metabolic rates across the 2 years of measurement at Cape Bird. In addition, standard metabolic rates of G. hodgsoni obtained from Garwood and Taylor Valleys were significantly higher than those at Cape Bird where habitats are comparable, but environmental characteristics differ (e.g. microclimatic temperatures are higher). We discuss potential underlying causes of these metabolic rate variation patterns, including those related to differences among individuals (e.g. physiological and genetic differences), locations (e.g. habitat quality and microclimatic regime differences) and populations (e.g. acclimation differences among G. hodgsoni populations in the form of metabolic cold adaptation (MCA)).

Regional climate of the Larsen B embayment 1980–2014

first_imgUnderstanding the climate response of the Antarctic Peninsula ice sheet is vital for accurate predictions of sea-level rise. However, since climate models are typically too coarse to capture spatial variability in local scale meteorological processes, our ability to study specific sectors has been limited by the local fidelity of such models and the (often sparse) availability of observations. We show that a high-resolution (5.5 km × 5.5 km) version of a regional climate model (RACMO2.3) can reproduce observed interannual variability in the Larsen B embayment sufficiently to enable its use in investigating long-term changes in this sector. Using the model, together with automatic weather station data, we confirm previous findings that the year of the Larsen B ice shelf collapse (2001/02) was a strong melt year, but discover that total annual melt production was in fact ~30% lower than 2 years prior. While the year before collapse exhibited the lowest melting and highest snowfall during 1980–2014, the ice shelf was likely pre-conditioned for collapse by a series of strong melt years in the 1990s. Melt energy has since returned to pre-1990s levels, which likely explains the lack of further significant collapse in the region (e.g. of SCAR Inlet).last_img read more

Spencer Kevin Johnson struck out three and did not allow a hit in his five innings pitched.Although Utah out-hit Sacramento State, 7-4, the Utes were felled by seven runners left on throughout the game. Erick Migueles had three hits for the Utes, going 3-for-4 on the night, and Oliver Dunn hit a solo home run for Utah’s only scoring on the night.Sacramento State took a quick 1-0 lead in the first inning. After two singles and a walk loaded the bases with no outs, Utah limited the damage with a double play ball that allowed a run to score before a ground out ended the inning. The Hornets took a 2-0 lead in the third after a leadoff triple would lead to a run on a ground out.Dunn hit his second home run of the year in the bottom of the third.Utah had its best chance to tie it up in the sixth. After Matt Richardson reached on a throwing error to lead off the inning, the Utes were unable to take advantage when he was called out for leaving the base early while tagging up on a fly ball. Rykker Tom and Migueles both singled with two outs but were left on base. Braden DeBenedictis singled in the ninth with one out but was also stranded on base.Utah and Sacramento State continue the series on Saturday, playing a doubleheader beginning at 1:00 p.m. MT. The teams are playing a doubleheader due to inclement weather forecasted for the Salt Lake area on Sunday.last_img read more
