Are Paleomagnetic Measurements Reliable?

first_imgDating of past geophysical history depends on magnetic measurements that may be in error.Geophysicists often speak confidently about when magnetic reversals occured, as in this press release from Carnegie Science:Earth’s magnetic field is generated by the motion of liquid iron in the planet’s core. This “geodynamo” occasionally reverses its polarity—the magnetic north and south poles swap places. The switch occurs over a few thousand years, and the time between reversals can vary from some tens of thousands to tens of millions of years.When magnetic polarity remains stable in one orientation for more than 10 million years the interval is dubbed a “superchron.” Within the last 540 million years—the time when animals have roamed the Earth’s land and seas—there are three known superchron periods, occurring about once every 200 million years.It’s not clear, though, why field orientation should go through long stable periods separated by reversals of varying time frames orders of magnitude faster than the superchrons. Is the behavior of the Earth’s magnetic field that irregular? Or, is it possible the data they base this on is unreliable?A recent paper in Nature Communications may give pause to geophysicists who assume they can infer past magnetic field orientations reliably. In “Microbially assisted recording of the Earth’s magnetic field in sediment,” European geophysicists examined the possibility that microbial bioturbation rotates, translates or randomizes magnetic field records in sediments.Sediments continuously record variations of the Earth’s magnetic field and thus provide an important archive for studying the geodynamo. The recording process occurs as magnetic grains partially align with the geomagnetic field during and after sediment deposition, generating a depositional remanent magnetization (DRM) or post-DRM (PDRM). (P)DRM acquisition mechanisms have been investigated for over 50 years, yet many aspects remain unclear. A key issue concerns the controversial role of bioturbation, that is, the mechanical disturbance of sediment by benthic organisms, during PDRM acquisition. A recent theory on bioturbation-driven PDRM appears to solve many inconsistencies between laboratory experiments and palaeomagnetic records, yet it lacks experimental proof. Here we fill this gap by documenting the important role of bioturbation-induced rotational diffusion for (P)DRM acquisition, including the control exerted on the recorded inclination and intensity, as determined by the equilibrium between aligning and perturbing torques acting on magnetic particles.Scientists may assume, in other words, that they are seeing a DRM (depositional remanent magnetism) signature—i.e., the record of the magnetic field at the time the rock formed—when they in fact are seeing a PDRM (post-DRM) alteration. That alteration can come about through microbes and other bioturbating animals who put a spin on the remanent magnetism or move it about similar to random Brownian motion.Regardless of the acquisition mechanism, most PDRM models assume that lock-in of magnetization only begins once substantial surface mixing has ceased, that is, below the mixed layer, so that DRM and PDRM are mutually exclusive or almost so. A different viewpoint arises from a statistical model of PDRM acquisition in the surface-mixed layer. This model considers bioturbation as a rotational diffusion process similar to that of Brownian motion, which occurs in the presence of random inter-particle forces.Sediments are assumed to take on the orientation of the magnetic field when they settle into rock layers. A figure caption in the paper, though, lists 7 “natural processes affecting sedimentary magnetizations“: “1: Marine snow, 2: flocculation, 3: settling, 4: sediment resuspension, 5: non-local mixing, for example, by polychaete worms, 6: local (diffusive) sediment mixing leading to particle reorientation and 7: burial in the consolidating layer.” The team’s experiments with sediments settling at the bottoms of vials seems to show significant “particle realignment after deposition,” giving rise to a PDRM instead of a DRM.The authors are not clear about the degree of randomization possible in the rock record, or how post-depositional alterations might render interpretations of past magnetism questionable. It appears clear, though, that geophysicists should not assume that remanent orientations and intensities they measure in sediments correspond to the true magnetic field at the time.We invite creation geologists to look at this paper carefully and consider the implications. A friend in this field has assured me that geologists are able to tell the difference between DRM and PDRM. But if this “known unknown” needed clarification, what “unknown unknowns” remain to come to light?For more on problems with the secular geodynamo theory, see “Earth’s Geodynamo: An Energy Crisis” (1/25/16), “Stuff Geologists Think They Know Till Tomorrow” (12/22/15), “Magnetic News” (8/03/15), “What You’re Not Being Told About Earth’s Magnetic Field” (4/17/15), “Earth’s Magnetic Field Less Sustainable than Thought” (5/17/12), and “Findings that Comport with Genesis” (10/27/13).(Visited 62 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

BASF moving forward with new pesticide technology

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest BASF’s insecticide portfolio is expanding with two new compounds on the horizon for release in the near future to increase the number of tools for insect control and resistance management.The active ingredient broflanilide brings a new mode of action that has demonstrated excellent levels of control for chewing pests — the biggest insecticide market segment — for use in row and specialty crops as well as the professional pest management market. The other novel active ingredient, afidopyropen, with the trade name Inscalis, is effective against piercing-sucking insects, providing long-lasting control of aphids, whiteflies, and certain leafhoppers, psyllids and scales for use in specialty crops, soybeans and other row crops, and ornamentals. Both products will be launched soon in several markets across the globe.At Commodity Classic, the focus from BASF was on the expected commercial release of Inscalis in the next year.“It has fast onset of action that quickly stops the feeding of key target insects. The product also has a great residual profile so it can fit into existing spray programs and it is engineered to fit in with today’s consumer demands,” said John Descary, Marketing Product Manager with BASF. “There is a need for more modes of action, but the new products must be engineered and tested to meet the needs of today’s modern consumer. We could see EPA approval around September and we could see state approvals and the product in place by Q1 of 2019.”Public pressure is driving increased regulation and more stringent requirements for pesticides, hence greater cost. In addition, growing concern over declining pollinator populations is another major obstacle for new pesticide development. But at the same time, insects continue to develop resistance to existing herbicides.“We need to look at the future and bring new technology so farmers can address insect resistance but we have to be environmentally responsible as well,” said Scott Kay, vice president U.S. Crop Protection for BASF. “It takes over 11 years to bring a new product to market and the price has doubled to around $300 million. It takes quite an investment, but we have found you can be successful with new technology and control pests without causing problems with the pollinators. We know that Mother Nature has not given up and we know farmers need new modes of action for the future.”last_img read more

Ready For Zero – Bringing Transparency to Online Debt Management

first_imgTags:#Finance#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Launched last month, Ready for Zero co-founder Rod Ebrahimi says that the system is already tracking $29 million in credit card debt. But it isn’t simply a matter of tracking – and helping users track – debt. Ready for Zero has recently partnered with the peer-to-peer lending network, Lending Club. By monitoring its users debt and their work towards paying it off, Ready for Zero can give a snapshot of one aspect of someone’s financial health, and Ready for Zero makes it easy to share that with potential lenders at Lending Club. This means that people can apply for P2P debt consolidation loans at rates that are typically far lower than other banks and lending institutions.As the startup expands, Ready for Zero says it plans to eventually give users the option to make payments, not just monitor payments, through their interface. “We’re just three guys and we’re a technical team,” says Ebrahimi. But the startup is hoping that by merging that technical expertise with more open data, that Ready for Zero can scale up while helping the rest of us scale back our debt. Related Posts As of June of 2010, the total U.S. consumer debt was $2.40 trillion. As much as 98% of the revolving debt in the U.S. is credit card debt, and the average household carries about $8000 in credit card debt. As daunting as those statistics are for the country as a whole, the choices faced by the individuals who are in debt and who want to eliminate it are just as depressing.Information about debt reduction can be difficult to find, and there are plenty of questionable practices by banks and by debt consolidation companies that just serve to muddy the waters.So making the task of tackling your debt easy and transparent is a big part of the mission of the YC-backed company Ready for Zero. Ready for Zero a free service with a very simple interface that helps clarify your financial status and plan your way out of debt. Much like Mint.com, you sign up and link your credit card information, and then Ready for Zero offers you counselling based on your interest rates, balance, and target date for being debt-free.The emphasis here is on transparency and interactivity, and users can see how adjusting payment amounts, for example, change their status. The software also offers other advice, including tips on how and when to approach a bank to renegotiate your interest rate.

Bhopal water crisis: A glaring problem

I was born there and till we went to school, we spent a lot of time in Bhopal, especially during the violence and tension of 1946-47. During the communal riots in Punjab, we were sent off to stay with our grandmother in Bhopal as it would be safer. It was great fun as it was a joint family system, lots of cousins and uncles, playing cricket or hockey, and all study was done at home. Then when things settled down post-independence, my father joined the external affairs ministry and we moved to Delhi. While at Welham’s in Dehradun, I spent all my holidays in Bhopal. When my grandfather died in 1960, my mother, Begum Sajida Sultan, succeeded him and we moved to Bhopal permanently.A runaway realestate sector is leaving Bhopal with a water crisisThe charm of Bhopal will always be the lake and the hills. The temperature did feel cooler than it does now and during the monsoon, it was beautiful to see the clouds come across the lake. Under royalty, Bhopal was feudal and the population was small, about 50,000. The culture was predominantly Muslim, some of which you still see in parts of the old city, a kind of mini Lucknow. It was relaxed and everyone farmed, which meant everyone had a lot of spare time. The roads were broad, there was no shortage of water or electricity. As a child, we lived in the old part of the palace. It now houses government offices and I don’t go there anymore but I gather that it’s still beautiful. We later moved to the new part of the palace and eventually, in 1970, we moved out to a smaller house.My favourite place in Bhopal used to be my aunt’s home which is now hotel Noor-us-sabah. We used to spend a lot of time there. And below that was the Rizwan Bagh, that was given to my wife as a wedding present. Saif, my son, too went to school in Bhopal for a term when he was eight, it was the first and the last time he stood first in class. My favourite mosque is the Moti Masjid. Tajul Masjid is a beautiful mosque too but its view from the main road is blocked now.advertisementBhopal also had a rich culture of sports with hockey topping the list of favourites. Even the common people could tell a bad player from a good one, a good shot from a bad. It’s no longer so, now everyone plays cricket. For a while the growth was organised, some of the new colonies such as T.T. Nagar were well laid out but then it began to get haphazard and civic amenities could not keep pace. The population is now close to two million. There is a serious shortage of water as the lake is no longer used. There is a shortage of electricity also. The city has become very congested. Perhaps I’m being over critical, as the government has tried to keep it clean. Perhaps you can’t stop the madness that comes with cities. It’s the same with Indore, Jabalpur, Raipur, Jaipur-all overcrowded.Where Bhopal is headed depends on how seriously the authorities take its governance. For instance, the lake is drying up. There were efforts to desilt it but it only became shallower and the water evaporated faster. So if there is no governance it will be on its way to becoming very uncomfortable, almost unliveable.- As told to Sumaiya Khanlast_img read more

Jamaica Well Poised to Benefit from Food Tourism – Grange

first_imgStory Highlights Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Minister, Hon.  Olivia Grange, says Jamaica is well poised to benefit from the global food-tourism market. Pointing to research done in 2004, which stated that more than one-third of tourist spending is devoted to food, she noted that the demand for culinary treats has been growing steadily worldwide, and Jamaica’s entry into that market would be a natural one. Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Minister, Hon.  Olivia Grange, says Jamaica is well poised to benefit from the global food-tourism market.Minister Grange, who was addressing the official launch of the ‘MoBay Jerk Festival’ at the Royal Decameron Resort in St. James on Wednesday (July 5), said food tourism could complement the already well-established elements of the tourist experience, including entertainment.Pointing to research done in 2004, which stated that more than one-third of tourist spending is devoted to food, she noted that the demand for culinary treats has been growing steadily worldwide, and Jamaica’s entry into that market would be a natural one.“Food is big business, especially in the entertainment and hospitality sectors. In fact, in the last few years, food tourism has grown considerably and has become one of the most dynamic and creative segments of tourism, according to the World Tourism Organization.  That means that more and more people are travelling to a destination to experience the food,” she pointed out.The Minister said she is excited about Jamaica’s prospects in the global market, noting that food tourism has the potential to stimulate several other sectors.“One of the things that get me excited about the potential of food tourism is that it fits into an authentic cultural and entertainment experience – one that can stimulate local, regional and national economic development,” she noted.Ms. Grange said the Ministry’s partnership in the staging of the MoBay Jerk Festival is in keeping with the Government’s push to stimulate economic development by using the creativity of the people.“It is also an investment towards increasing the intrinsic value of our culture and entertainment offerings,” she pointed out.In addition, she said, Jamaica has a duty to protect the jerk tradition.“Much like reggae music, we have a duty to ensure that we protect and promote authentic Jamaican jerk.  Culinary activities, such as the Montego Bay Jerk Festival, give us an opportunity to market and present Jamaica as the home of authentic jerk food,” she added.Ms. Grange commended the organisers of the jerk festival, who are marketing the event as a major Emancipation/Independence activity.“I note that you intend for the Montego Bay Jerk Festival to act as the ‘grand gala’ of western Jamaica as we celebrate Jamaica 55.“This year, the jerk festival takes on a new character, as it will be vital in engaging people in the west of Jamaica to participate in our Emancipation and Independence celebrations.  In this regard, the festival will feature a wide range of activities, including cultural events and performances, cook-offs and food stations, a domino tournament, fireworks show and stage show,” she pointed out.The 2017 staging of the MoBay Jerk Festival takes place at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre on August 1. The Minister said she is excited about Jamaica’s prospects in the global market, noting that food tourism has the potential to stimulate several other sectors.last_img read more
