Tracking rivers to read ancient glaciers

first_imgIn a kind of geological mystery, scientists have known for decades that a massive ice sheet stretched to cover most of Canada and much of the northeastern U.S. 25,000 years ago. What’s been trickier to pin down is how — and especially how quickly — it reached its ultimate size.One clue to answering that, Tamara Pico said, may involve changes to the Hudson River.Pico, who is a Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Ph.D. student working in the group led by Jerry Mitrovica, the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science, is the lead author of a study that estimates how glaciers moved by examining how the weight of the ice sheet altered topography and led to changes in the river’s course. The study is described in a July paper published in Geology.“The Hudson River has changed course multiple times over the last million years,” Pico said. “The last time was about 30,000 years ago, just before the last glacial maximum, when it moved to the east.“That ancestral channel has been dated and mapped … and the way the ice sheet connects to this is: As it is growing, it’s loading the crust it’s sitting on. The Earth is like bread dough on these time scales, so as it gets depressed under the ice sheet, the region around it bulges upward. In fact, we call it the peripheral bulge. The Hudson is sitting on this bulge, and as it’s lifted up and tilted, the river can be forced to change directions.”To develop a system that could connect the growth of the ice sheet with changes in the Hudson’s direction, Pico began with a model for how the Earth deforms in response to various loads.“So we can say, if there’s an ice sheet over Canada, I can predict the land in New York City to be uplifted by X many meters,” she said. “What we did was create a number of different ice histories that show how the ice sheet might have grown, each of which predicts a certain pattern of uplift, and then we can model how the river might have evolved in response to that upwelling.”The result, Pico said, is a model that may for the first time be able to use the changes in natural features in the landscape to measure the growth of ice sheets.“This is the first time a study has used the change in a river’s direction to understand which ice history is most likely,” she said. “There’s very little data about how the ice sheet grew because as it grows it acts like a bulldozer and scrapes everything away to the edges. We have plenty of information about how the ice retreats, because it deposits debris as it melts back, but we don’t get that type of record as the ice is advancing.”,What little data scientists do have about how the ice sheet grew, Pico said, comes from data about sea level during the period, and suggests that the ice sheet over Canada, particularly in the eastern part of the country, remained relatively small for a long period, and then suddenly began to grow quickly.“In a way, this study is motivated by that, because it’s asking: Can we use evidence for a change in river direction … to test whether the ice sheet grew quickly or slowly?” she said. “We can only ask that question because these areas were never covered by ice, so this record is preserved. We can use evidence in the landscape and the rivers to say something about the ice sheet, even though this area was never covered by ice.”While the study offers strong suggestive evidence that the technique works, Pico said there is still a great deal of work to be done to confirm that the findings are solid.“This is the first time this has been done, so we need to do more work to explore how the river responds to this type of uplift and understand what we should be looking for in the landscape,” she said. “But I think it’s extremely exciting because we are so limited in what we know about ice sheets before the last glacial maximum. We don’t know how fast they grew. If we don’t know that, we don’t know how stable they are.”Going forward, Pico said she is working to apply the technique to several other rivers along the Eastern Seaboard, including the Delaware, Potomac, and Susquehanna, all of which show signs of rapid change during the same period.“There is some evidence that rivers experienced very unusual changes that are no doubt related to this process,” she said. “The Delaware may have actually reversed slope, and the Potomac and Susquehanna both show a large increase in erosion in some areas, suggesting the water was moving much faster.”In the long run, Pico said, the study may help researchers rewrite their understanding of how quickly the landscape can change and how rivers and other natural features respond.“For me, this work is about trying to connect the evidence on land to the history of glaciation to show the community that this process — what we call glacial isostatic adjustment — can really impact rivers,” Pico said. “People most often think of rivers as stable features of the landscape that remain fixed over very long, million-year time scales, but we can show that these Ice Age effects can alter the landscape on millennial time scales. The ice sheet grows, the Earth deforms, and rivers respond.”This research was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, Harvard University, and the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund.last_img read more

Power to our Partners

first_imgThis month, we welcomed roughly 5,000 partners to Las Vegas for our annual Global Partner Summit – our flagship event of the year. I spent the week meeting with partners from around the globe and emphasized three main messages; we are winning, we are investing, and we are innovating. The response was encouraging. To put it simply, there’s really no reason not to be partnering with Dell Technologies.We are winning.The momentum we’ve generated over the last year has been stellar. Already the market leader, we took even more share in data protection, even more share in hyperconverged infrastructure and even more share in external storage. Four quarters in a row of storage share gains. Furthermore, we accounted for over half the storage market growth or $1.3B1 in 2018. We are truly defying gravity with you, our partner community!We are investing.At Dell Technologies, we aim to have the #1 program in the eyes of our partners. And this past year, you made more money than ever selling storage with Dell Technologies. This validates the hard work and the investments we’ve made toward designing storage programs to grow our collective businesses.Moving forward, we will continue to invest in the programs that resonated best with all of you.We are innovating.Finally, we made a number of product announcements at Dell Technologies World. Our innovation engine has been working at warp speed to deliver in the areas that you told us we need to improve in.Let’s start with cloud. Partners and customers alike have been asking us for more integrated solutions spanning the SABs and we delivered. We announced the Dell Technologies Cloud; a platform where VCF is integrated onto our VxRail products, deployable on prem. And beginning in the second half of the year, we’ll offer the Dell Technologies Data Center as a Service with the Vmware cloud on Dell EMC.On top of all that, to deliver even more choice for our partners and customers, we’ve expanded our partnership with Microsoft and can now deliver a fully native, supported, and certified VMware cloud infrastructure on Microsoft Azure.And what about Storage? Summarized by Jeff Boudreau here, our latest storage innovations will better enable customers to maximize the value of their data capital.In midrange, the new Dell EMC Unity XT has been refreshed and drives 2X more IOPS with NVMe-ready architecture and delivers greater data efficiency with up to 5:1 data reduction.In high end, Dell EMC PowerMax, now delivers even better performance and will be the first true scale-out storage array2 to ship with Intel Optane DC drives used for persistent storage by year end. Also, PowerMax has expanded automation and container support.In unstructured, the latest Isilon OneFS 8.2 provides up to 75% greater capacity and performance to support the most demanding file workloads, enhanced cloud integration with Google Cloud and Alibaba and increased security.In data protection and data management, the new Dell EMC PowerProtect Software platform and the multi-dimensional Dell EMC PowerProtect X400 appliance (an industry first!) deliver simplified management, multi-cloud protection, automation services and cyber recovery. ​Safe to say, our position in the marketplace is the strongest it’s ever been and our portfolio just further expands upon what we can offer our customers. There’s no better time to partner with Dell Technologies. And as Michael Dell said in his keynote, “this is just the pregame show!”[1] IDC, ESS Tracker, March 2019[2] Based on Dell EMC 2019 internal testing of the Dell EMC Unity 650F with the Dell Unity XT 880F @ 8K block size for 100% Reads, 100% Writes, and 70:30 mixed R/Wlast_img read more

Peak by Peak: Are You Tough Enough to Tackle the South Beyond 6000 Challenge?

first_imgGREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINSGUYOT 6,621 FT. (TENN.)LE CONTE 6,593 FT.According to Kirk, you have to “really want to get to that peak,” because there’s no nearby trailhead. Kirk describes Mt. Le Conte as a “broad, gentle giant.” Reaching the top requires some bushwhacking, but it’s worth the effort.“It’s like an enchanted forest and a completely different biome up there,” he says. “It’s really high up and you’re walking on all these spruce needles. It’s just a really cool setting up there, kind of tucked away.”CHAPMAN 6,417 FT. (TENN.)CLINGMANS DOME 6,643 FT. (N.C.)COLLINS 6,188 FT. (N.C.)OLD BLACK 6,370 FT. (N.C.)LUFTEE KNOB 6,234 FT.

(N.C.)TRICORNER KNOB 6,120 FT.“The peaks that stand out to me as the most challenging were in the Tricorner shelter area,” Riddle says. “The shelter is 15 miles from vehicular access, so it’s necessary to hike in all of one’s supplies.” As much as she and the group wanted to call it a day when they arrived at the shelter in the afternoon, they pressed on and added Mt. Sequoyah, Mt. Chapman, and Marks Knob to the day’s list.SEQUOYAH 6,003 FT. (TENN.)GREAT BALSAM MOUNTAINS“I’m partial to some of the peaks along the Art Loeb trail, which is where I had my first ultra adventure in North Carolina,” Kirk says. “That trail goes over Black Balsam, Tennent, Shining Rock, all the way to Cold Mountain.”RICHLAND BALSAM 6,410 FT. (N.C.)BLACK BALSAM KNOB 6,214 FT.One of Riddle’s “favorite mountains anywhere,” Black Balsam Knob is near milepost 420 on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

(N.C.)REINHART KNOB 6,080 FT.Off the parkway across from the more touristy Richland Balsam Knob, “Reinhart Knob, is a bit of a forgotten mountain,” Kirk says.

The rain was relentless, the overgrown briers showed no mercy on their legs, it was dark when they started and when they finished. And after 16 hours on the trail they were met with a bear prowling around the shelter. The bear came sniffing around again, even after being tranquilized by a park ranger.“That first day was the scariest,” says Anne Riddle.Understatement? It was day one of six in the summer of 2009, when long-distance runners Anne Riddle, Rebekah Trittipoe and Jenny Anderson (collectively known as The Cats) took off to set the women’s record for scaling all 40 of the Southern Appalachian’s 6,000-foot peaks in one continuous effort, a challenge known as the South Beyond 6,000 (SB6K).According to Vance Mann, a volunteer administrator of the Carolina Mountain Club, which sponsors the program, the guidelines of the SB6K don’t include a time limit. In fact, he says most participating hikers take anywhere from six months to two years to complete the challenge, and there’s no trophy for knocking it out any faster than the next guy. There is, however, a certificate and a patch, which Mann, a 75-year-old hiking enthusiast who’s been involved with the club for a decade, mails to anyone who completes the SB6K.But you know those ultra-runners—why walk a trail when they could run it?Team EffortTheir first day began around 2am in the Clingmans Dome parking lot and ended about 50 miles, eight peaks, and 16 hours later. Between the water-logged shoes, the blisters, the unwelcome campsite guest, the nonstop rain, and the overwhelming fatigue, there were certainly moments when Riddle considered quitting.“There are times when you’re just like, oh my god, this sucks, why did I sign up to do this,” she says. “But there were times when it was really fun. Time’s just flying, you feel like you’ve got tons of energy and it’s just a beautiful day.”Riddle joined her high school cross-country team as a freshman, after concluding that contact sports requiring hand-eye coordination weren’t her forte. (She still identifies as a clumsy athlete, citing the seemingly endless bumps and bruises she acquired during those six days.) She continued logging miles during and after college, but it wasn’t until her 30s, when she owned a running shop, that she considered tip-toeing into the ultra world. A woman entered the store looking for a watch that counted up to 100 miles. Bewildered, Riddle asked why, and the woman’s answer was simple: she ran 100 miles at a time.“I was looking at her, this elementary school teacher, and she seemed like a normal person,” Riddle recalls, noting that she and the customer had similar body types. “I thought, OK, well if she can do it, maybe I can do it.”The more ultra-runners Riddle surrounded herself with, the more respect she developed for the sport. It’s a slippery slope, though, from that first 50K race to a six-day challenge covering 300 miles.“Before I had ever met any ultra-runners I thought these people must be crazy, they must be like Olympians, another species,” she says. “But I started meeting people who do more and more crazy long, hard things, and I realized they’re just normal people who happen to set a goal and work really hard to do it.”Riddle’s list of running accolades is a long and impressive one, but the SB6K was a different beast. For starters, the choice to run with two other women was deliberate. A starting line, a designated course, and a couple hundred fellow runners don’t come with the SB6K like a traditional race, and Riddle preferred the idea of tackling the challenge with a like-minded cohort, for both safety and camaraderie.The trio agreed to stick together and only be as fast as the slowest person, and even when someone pulled ahead or fell behind, Riddle says they were generally within about 100 meters of each other. And every time they reached a peak, The Cats paused as a group to (briefly) enjoy it together.“Doing an adventure like that really kind of tests your relationship skills and ability to compromise and negotiate and that sort of thing,” she says. “When you’re by yourself you can go at your own pace and you don’t have all those personalities to take into account, but it is nice having people there to encourage you. At moments when I was feeling low, maybe someone else was feeling really good, and vice-versa along the way.”This was Riddle’s first multi-day, overnight running excursion, and essential to the group’s success was their crew. A small band of supporters followed along in a vehicle, meeting them at shelters and in parking lots with sleeping bags, hot food and dry clothes. Friends also popped in on occasion to run a couple (or a couple dozen) miles with them, and Riddle fondly recalls the day some pals hand-delivered giant Starbucks frappuccinos. And one morning, fellow runners greeted them with coffee, chocolate-chip pancakes, and breakfast burritos, a meal that Riddle describes as “the most heavenly.”A couple years later, Riddle paid it forward by meeting Matt Kirk out on the trail during his own SB6K journey, equipped with breakfast burritos.Going SoloFor Matt Kirk, the SB6K was a pipe dream for years. Kirk was a young, mountain-loving college kid who had just discovered trail running when he received an email from speed demon Ted “Cave Dog” Keizer in 2002. Kirk immediately recognized Keizer as the guy who had set a record on Colorado’s 14,000-footers (also known as 14ers) in 2000, and Keizer had come across a rudimentary web page that Kirk had set up to document his own experience on North Carolina’s sixers.“He thought I was an expert on these mountains,” Kirk laughs. “Of course I wasn’t, but I guess you can fake anything on the internet these days.”He may not have considered himself an expert 15 years ago, but that would be a tough argument to make now. He talked with Keizer about the sixers, and the seed was planted.“It became a little project,” Kirk says. “He wanted to just pick them off, not in any speedy fashion, but to collect experiences.”Famous last words. Keizer, whose goal was to string all 40 peaks (15 of which have no designated trails) together in one continuous footpath, slapped the final summit marker after four days, 23 hours, and 28 minutes. Seven years later, Kirk shattered that record, knocking out all 40 peaks in four days, 14 hours and 38 minutes.Because so many of the mountains are quite literally off the beaten path and the 40 peaks aren’t conveniently arranged in a straight line, it’s difficult to pinpoint specific mileage for the SB6K. Kirk picked the brains of everyone who came before him and spent many a weekend with his wife, exploring on and off the trails, tracking GPS points and bushwhacking his way through rhododendron and briers to the top of the less obviously accessible mountains.Between the weekend excursions (which Kirk says were just as much fun as the timed trial, if not more so) and combing through the trail notes that Keizer and The Cats had graciously shared with him, Kirk plotted out a time-efficient route that shaved what he estimated to be about 50 miles off the originals.Kirk ran solo for most of the four-and-a-half days, but he’s the first to point out that he didn’t do it alone.“The thing that made this stand out as a success really had less to do with my athletic ability and all to do with the great support and phenomenal weather we had,” he says.Kirk’s dad met him at the end of each long day in a Volkswagen bus circa 1970s loaded down with gear and a kitchen for morning omelets, plus Kirk’s wife and friends made appearances along the way. With the exception of some misty, uncomfortable conditions during his connection from Mt. Mitchell to Celo Knob, Kirk says he couldn’t have asked for better weather.“It was nice and chilly in the mornings, enough to get you going, really clear with low humidity, just incredible views,” he says. “The morale from being out in that kind of environment day in and day out just really kept spirits pretty high.”He didn’t exactly allow himself to take it all in, though. Upon scaling a peak he was more likely to inhale a protein bar, retie his shoes, take a deep breath, and head back down than he was to sit back and enjoy the panoramic views.“Which I don’t recommend to people,” he says. “It’s not the best way to do it, but I knew I was following in the footsteps of someone I had a lot of respect for and their time was not going to be easy to beat.”The Southern Summits“When I did the challenge, I had lived and trained in Western North Carolina for 16 years,” Riddle says. “But through this process I experiencedtrails I had never before visited.” They may be record-holders, but Riddle and Kirk are more than happy to share their secrets so fellow trail runners and hikers can follow in their footsteps. If you’re thinking about exploring the 40 peaks (in a continuous race with the clock or otherwise), this may be a good place to start.BLACK MOUNTAINS“The Black Mountains are fun, as you can knock out seven of them in seven miles, mostly along the Black Mountain Crest Trail,” Riddle says. “It’s steep and techincal, but with amazing views.”MITCHELL—6,684 FT. YANCEY COUNTY, N.C.As the tallest point east of the Mississippi and the inspiration for one of the country’s first state parks, Mt. Mitchell is a popular destination for North Carolinians and travelers alike. it’s easily accessible from a vehicle so it can “feel pretty touristy,” Riddle says, but that just gives the experience even more variety, especially in comparison to the remote peaks.CRAIG 6,647 FT.

Reed gives a capsule account of life on the ocean as well as helping local fishermen catch the big one on Kootenay Lake.Well, we finally made it back from the West Coast a couple weeks ago. This year’s Salmon fishing was a lot different than most years, probably because of the unusually warm waters. The run of big fish that we usually see just didn’t seem to happen like normal.  We did manage a few big fish up to 32 pounds, but most days saw smaller fish. The trade off was okay though, because there seemed to be a lot of those fish around.  Some days out on the bank, we landed more than 60 fish per day.And I remember one outstanding day where we landed over 100 fish.  So, the non-stop action made up for the size of Salmon.We also caught a lot more Halibut this year and the sizes were up too.  Most of our Hali’s averaged between 15 – 25 pounds, with our biggest couple weighing in around 60 pounds. All in all, we made the best of our season and most people went home happy.  Already planning for next year.Kootenay LakeAnd now we’re back on Kootenay Lake and already into the swing of things. Our last few charters have seen a lot of action for this time of year. Most days we’re catching between 5 – 10 fish.  We’ve been landing Rainbows up to 18 pounds and Dolly Varden (Bull Trout) up to 15 pounds.  I’ve also heard of a few Rainbows over 20 pounds and even up to 25 pounds. That’s amazing fishing at this time. And things are only going to get better. The water temperature is still a bit warm for these fish to begin to get active. So, right now, the fish are scattered. But, as the temperatures cool and our water temp drops, these fish will be getting more and more aggressive.  The best is yet to come.  My favorite time is approaching. October, November, December are prime months for fishing our magnificent lake. What are they biting on??? Since the water temperature is still above 60 degrees, most of the fish are staying deep.  So, we have been catching a lot on the usual flasher/hoochie combo. However, some of our latest fish have been caught on the surface.  So, we need to mix it up a bit. Bucktail flies have been catching a few, as well as lyman plugs and apex lures on the surface. The best bet is to run some lines on the surface, and some lines on the downrigger.  My favorite depths have been between 90 ft – 140 feet. Bucktail fly colors working for me have been: 215, 221, 226, and 228. And my Lyman plugs so far working best are:  #16, 53, 55, and lucky number 69.  Not one pattern has been working better than any other, so keep changing it up until the fish tell you what they want.Derby, Derby, Derby It’s that time of year again — Fishing Derby season. October is not only the beginning of our good fishing, but it’s the beginning of the Fishing derbies. Here’s a list of what is  coming up: October 13-14 – Nelson City Police Alumni Derby November 10-12  –  Kaslo Rainbow Derby          Tight Lines…………..
