The survey is active in areas such as land-use planning, waste disposal, hydrocarbons exploration, civil engineering, minerals extraction, contaminated land, seismic and geohazard evaluation and understanding climate change. Amphibolite is a gneissose or granofelsic metamorphic rock mainly consisting of green, brown or black amphibole and plagioclase (including albite), which combined form ≥75% of the rock and both of which are present as major constituents; the amphibole constitutes ≥50% of the total mafic constituents and is present in an amount of ≥30%.

The structural interpretation suggests that the boundary between normal and stretched continental crust is coincident with the long-lived left-lateral ‘West Shetland Shear Zone’, which partitioned strain during rifting of the margin. 2D/D gravity and magnetic models are shown for two seismic profiles from the PGS FSB MegaSurveyPlus.

The Bransfield Basin is a back-arc rift basin located off the Northern tip of the Antarctic basin lies within a Northeast and Southwest trending strait that separates the peninsula from the nearby South Shetland Islands to the Northwest.

The basin extends for more than kilometres ( miles) from Smith Island (South Shetland Islands) to a portion of the Hero Fracture y: Antarctica. Another nonexistent reef in the Line Islands (in fact Line Islands are more than 2, miles (3, kilometres) away), slightly to the southwest-west of the phantom island, Jupiter Reef.

A search of maps of the British Isles has revealed several possible impact sites, of which the most convincing is the feature known as St. Magnus Bay in the Shetland Islands. No explanation other than massive impact seems able to account for the peculiar shape of the bay and its resemblance to certain ancient Canadian impact crater by: 1.

Shetland Ponies: Choosing the best from the rest. 16 Jul The Shetland Pony is iconic around the world and will be the focus of a week long celebration of the breed this July culminating in the Shetland Pony Stud-Book Society annual Breed Show.

Regueiro, M. Stamatakis, & K. Laskaridis from a couple months ago for linking me in to these resources, which I would have had a much harder time finding on my own. The groundbreaking G-BASE project has employed hundreds of volunteers and BGS staff to collect overgeochemical samples fromlocations between the Shetland Islands and Land’s End.

It was a long-standing rival to the Greenwich meridian as the prime meridian of the world. The "Paris meridian arc" or "French meridian arc" (French: la Méridienne de France) is the name of the meridian arc measured along the Paris meridian.

Peter I Island is a volcanic island located kilometres ( mi) off the coast of Ellsworth Land of continental Antarctica, and about 1, km ( mi) to the south-west of Smith Island, the nearest of the South Shetland has an area of square kilometres (59 sq mi). The island is almost entirely covered by glacier, with about 95% of the surface covered by ment: Dependent territory.

The Orkney islands are much flatter and generally more arable than Shetland. Without so much of dramatic coastal cliff line typical of Shetland, it has a softer more rounded landscape. In Stromness we hired a car for 2 days to visit the famous archaeological sites on Mainland Island.

The Antarctic Peninsula has a number of ice cores, the longest of which extends back to 14, years ago r, most are very short and it is difficult to compile a ‘representative’ ice-core stack, due to the different techniques and proxies used and measured, the disparate nature of the ice cores, the variance in length, and the widely different climatic regimes either side of the.

The book plays out over many decades, and many American historical events are woven into the narrative arc – the counterculture of the s, the Vietnam War, the “timber wars” in the Pacific Northwest in the s and s, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Occupy Wall Street protests, and more.
