Underground boiler melt the Greenland ice

August 12, 2013. Climate scientists report that an unusually thin crust beneath the surface of Greenland partly explains the abnormally high rate of melting of its ice cap, as the hot magma mass beneath the surface act as one giant "kettle", reports the journal Nature Geoscience.

The temperature at the foot of the glacier, and, accordingly, their condition, at the same time depend on the flow of heat from the Earth's interior and temperature fluctuations on the surface. With this in Greenland there are areas where the foot of the glacier is melting, and which at the same time are

The permafrost in Antarctica is melting at an accelerating rate

29.07.2013

Intriguing news again came from Antarctica — the first time scientists have found that the permafrost in Antarctica is melting at an accelerating rate, and this is not due to global warming, according to RIA-Novosti reported with reference to the journal Scientific Reports.

Scientists led by Joseph Levy (Joseph Levy) from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) gathered data on the melting of underground ice in Garwood Valley, located in the Dry Valleys of McMurdo in Victoria Land, Antarctica.

Scientists have found that the rate of melting permafrost rose from 2001 to

Antarctic summer for 60 years has been long almost twice

29.03.2013

The period of melting ice in the Antarctic Peninsula lengthened over the past 60 years, almost twice, according to a study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research.

Scientists from the British National Centre for Antarctic Studies (BAS) studied the history of ice melting on the Antarctic Peninsula, which is global warming effect is stronger than the rest of the continent and is the most serious loss of ice. They analyzed the results of meteorological observations made at the 30 polar stations Peninsula since 1948, as

In the melting of the Arctic polar ice blame fires

In the melting of the Arctic polar ice blame fires Scientists prove

With the help of satellites, scientists have traced the movement of smoke and soot produced during the polar tundra fires in the northern hemisphere and have concluded that accumulated on the ice cover of the soot particles are greatly contributed to accelerated melting of the Greenland ice last summer.

Certainly, intervened to discuss events and clear weather over Greenland, and warm coastal ocean waters. But the appearance of soot factor also played a role. We all know how dark soot from dirty snow and ice are

The good news is that Greenland is melting, but slowly

The good news is that Greenland is melting, but slowly Scientists prove

Greenland ice melting is accelerating, and 2012 could be a record in terms of thawing ice cap on record. Since this process plays a significant role in raising global sea level and climate change, the planet, followed closely watching dozens of groups of scientists. Indeed, Greenland continues to melt. But as scientists have found the University of Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, in the winter on the island of thawing is always accompanied by the freezing of the water, which did not manage to escape into the ocean and

From Lake Titicaca to the Mekong Delta

The legendary Lake Titicaca, located at an altitude of 3,800 meters between Peru and Bolivia dries, while Vietnam is becoming a victim of melting of Himalayan snow and thousands of kilometers of the Mekong Delta will soon be under water.

The transition from fish to potatoes

Over the last ten years, the water surface of Lake Titicaca is rapidly declining. Land are approximately 5,000 acres, and only the beginning of November the water level dropped by 80 cm Residents of this region live in extreme poverty, and they are now in danger of extinction fisheries. Replace fishing livestock or

VSMPO launched a new vacuum-arc furnace

CorporationVSMPOlaunched a new vacuum-arc furnace. The construction of the foundations and the installation of the unit in the shop number 32 took about a year. The purpose of the new equipment — improving the quality of titanium ingots used for the manufacture of forgings, as well as the reduction of waste.

  A series of trial heats took place almost without comment, the experts believe that the furnace lived up to expectations. The unit is able to control the balance of consumable electrode change, according to the given parameters, the rate of melting, are not available

On the verge of ecological disaster: the Earth will lose its snow cap

Global warming is happening faster than we think. The British newspaper The Guardian published a disturbing, to say the terrible prediction: in the next four years, the Arctic ice has completely melted. And then in the area of flooding will be approximately 800 million people. Can all these people avoid the fate of the inhabitants of Atlantis? Environmental disaster in the world will happen sooner than expected. In the next 4 years the Arctic could completely melt away. Last summer was a record speed of melting ice on a collated pole. Such a conclusion was a prominent scientist, Professor,

In the melting shop Kola next project environmental focus

In the melting shop Kola (a subsidiary of MMC "Norilsk Nickel") with 2 frequency converter Swedish-Swiss company ABB. They are designed to increase the efficiency of flue-gas, which is sent from the sulfur dioxide converters for processing into sulfuric acid unit.

Each inverter is equipped with a powerful motor and transformer. Hardware controls the fan speed exhaust fan, increasing it during peak downloads melting units and thereby ensuring maximum absorption of the exhaust gases. Thus, the new technology will utilize a greater amount of sulfur dioxide. For the border town of Nikel, where there are smelting production Kola Peninsula,
