Webber Submitted on 15 Apr Abstract: We have compared the yearly production rates of 10Be by cosmic rays in the Earths polar atmosphere over the last years with 10Be measurements from two separate ice cores in Greenland. These ice cores provide measurements of the annual 10Be concentration and 10Be flux levels during this time. The scatter in the ice core yearly data vs. These values for the correlation coefficient are all indicative of a “poor” correlation. The regression line slopes for the best fit lines between the 10Be production and the 10Be measurements used in the cross correlation analysis are all in the range 0.

Within humans, cell size is known to vary by several orders of magnitude, and differences in nuclear DNA content among cells have been frequently observed. Using published data, here we describe how the quantity of nuclear DNA across 19 different human cell types increases with cell volume. This observed increase is similar to intraspecific relationships between DNA content and cell volume in other species, and interspecific relationships between diploid genome size and cell volume.
Thus, we speculate that the quantity of nuclear DNA content in somatic cells of humans is perhaps best viewed as a distribution of values that reflects cell size distributions, rather than as a single, immutable quantity. It was already implemented at several drinking water treatment plants of different size and treatment processes in Germany. Hazards affecting water quality, continuity, and the reliability of supply from catchment to treatment and distribution could be identified by a systematic approach, and suitable control measures were defined.
Experiences are presented by detailed examples covering methods, practical consequences, and further outcomes. The method and the benefits for the water suppliers are discussed and an outlook on the future role of WSPs in German water supply is given.

Testing to destruction Carngoedog, Carnmeini and Craig Rhosyfelin — wonderful spots for picnics and maybe a bit of hunting We all enjoy a bit of knockabout fun on this blog, and I like to think we are testing the glacial transport hypothesis to destruction. If it stands up, fine, and if in the end it falls, that’s fine too, since the truth will out But I don’t see much evidence from anywhere of the archaeologists testing the human transport hypothesis to destruction. Is that debate going on, somewhere behind the scenes?

These communities which combined shellfish collection, fishing, submarine and terrestrial hunting, a possible proto-agriculture and gathering, developed a culture there rather specific to the tropical insular context. For this period, the typology of the deposits and of the material productions, patterns in the exploitation of alimentary resources and of raw materials as well as patterns in the territorial settlement, show that the natural environment had an influence on the lifestyle and organization of these populations.
Their social structure seems to be based on a cyclic system of exploitation of resources, shaped according to their availability and to socio-economic necessities as well as to the needs of their symbolic world. The notion of archaeoecology presented here comes from that of ethnoecology which analyses the interactions between humans and their natural environment with historical, sociocultural and ecological perspectives.
The concept of archaeoecology is used in this work in order to examine the past interactions between the maritime hunter-gatherers of the Lesser Antilles, their activities and their environment. The palaeo-environments are considered in a widely accepted way that is including living species, ecosystems and their evolutions, climatic conditions and their variations. If it appears quite obvious that the natural environment partly influenced these societies, this aspect is even more distinct in the very specific insular context of the Caribbean.
The island of Saint-Martin, localized in the Northern Lesser Antilles, offers a privileged field for this study. Indeed, it concentrates about a third of the Archaic Age sites that are attested by absolute dates in the Lesser Antilles. The archipelago spreads over more than 1 km, from Trinidad in the South to the Virgin Islands in the North, and thirty-seven Archaic Age sites have been, to this point, listed as far North as the island of Vieques, south-east of Puerto Rico.
Little developed on a vertical scale in Saint-Martin, these shell deposits appear to result from the combination of cyclic human settlements and stormy episodes bringing marine sand deposits which separate the successive discarding events in the same spot or destroy them, especially during cyclonic episodes. A diachronic and detailed study of the settlements over close to four millennia allows detecting an evolution in the human practices although they appear quite homogeneous at first sight.
Dating: an analytical task
Researchers have found more pieces of this critter and reconstructed it as a formidable predator. When the first fragments of Hurdia were described nearly one hundred years ago, they were assumed to be part of a crustacean-like animal. It was not then realised that other parts of the animal were also in collections, but had been described independently as jellyfish, sea cucumbers and other arthropods. New material collected in the s and the discovery of the best-preserved specimen in the collections at the Smithsonian Museum shows Hurdia to be related to Anomalocaris.
Like Anomalocaris, Hurdia had a segmented body with a head bearing a pair of spinous claws and a circular jaw structure with many teeth. But it differs from Anomalocaris by the possession of a huge three-part carapace that projects out from the front of the animal’s head.
(muons are more penetrating than neutrons), so that the 26Al/10Be ratio increases, and the rate at which the 26A1 concentration decreases with depth decreases. sion-track dating places its age at x yr (Gentner, Storzer & Wagner, ).
As expected for such a microinterface, the regime for mass transport depends on the scan rate of voltammetry, low scan rates being characterized by steady-state currents corresponding to radial diffusion; faster sweeps give rise to conventional cyclic voltammograms, from linear diffusion. This has been used as an electrochemical method for the study of tetraalkylammonium picrates at interfaces between water and immiscible solvents nitrobenzene, 1,2-dichloroethane.
When the organic solvent is DCE, the estimation of ionic interactions is risky in such a poorly dissociating medium; the microhole interface works well however, showing the influence of the medium on solvation of the cations and on the extraction of the picrates. Regression of the Lake Pannon from the southernmost part of the study area is evidenced after 8. Alluvial deposition of meandering rivers lasting until 6. The canyon has cut into a Middle Miocene pediment system—now forming a raised plateau at — m—and displays nine cave levels over a vertical height of 1 km.
It is concluded that: It follows that the elevated erosion surfaces of the Pyrenees, such as the Miocene pediment directly situated above the canyon edge, were not shaped at high elevations, e. The study emphasizes the more general proposition that tectonic signals as opposed to climatic or eustatic in valley-incision chronologies are best singled out at locations situated among the outer ranges of mountain belts, i.
Wes Hildreth, USGS-Menlo Park Yann Vinzce, University of Geneva, Switzerland Telling geologic time in the Late Pleistocene beyond the range of carbon dating has been a challenge that until recently posed a barrier to addressing many problems in paleoclimate, paleomagnetism, neotectonics, and volcanology. There is growing evidence, though, that deglaciation and warming were not exactly globally synchronous following the last glacial maximum, and perhaps earlier ice ages e.
Instead oceans, atmosphere, topography, and biota interact in a complex network of feed-backs such that regional responses to shifts in solar radiation may differ in tangible ways between the hemispheres Alley and Clark, ; Gillespie and Molnar, One lava flow that was striated and grooved by overriding glacial ice Fig. Three other lava flows each covering 4 to10 km2 of the basin floor are morphologically pristine and show no sign of burial or erosion by glacial processes.
We have tried OSL dating of the sediments from the excavated sections at both sites, AMS 14C dating of amorphous silica, U-Th series dating of ferromanganeous accretions deposited on petroglyphs and stratified boulders and microerosion dating of cupules.
We report the abandonment age of the Jeongdongjin JDJ coastal terrace that lies at 65 m a. The reliability of applied indirect age constraints on the sediments by amino-acid racemization and tephra chronology is debated. We present the first application of cosmogenic surface exposure dating to constrain the age of the old terrace in Korea.
We dated four samples from the paleo shore platform surface using cosmogenic 10Be surface exposure dating techniques. The analyses yielded exposure ages ranging from to kyr and likely correspond to the penultimate interglacial period MIS 7. The results indicate spatio-temporal variations in the rate of surface uplift along the east coast of Korea during the late Quaternary. Furthermore, the west and east coasts of central Korea experienced different uplift histories during the late Quaternary, possibly resulting from the effects of different tectonic regimes.

Radiocarbon dating of the remains is difficult due to mineralization. However, a Zacoalco molar was thought to contain remnant organics for AMS dating.
