Port of Ust-Luga has overtaken the result of last year

Cargo handling in the port of Leningrad region, January-July 2012, with respect, the same period of the previous year, increased by more than 2 times.

Total handled 23.6 million tons of cargo, which is already more than the result of the port for all of last year (22.7 million tons).

In particular, consumers are shipped 7.8 million tons of coal (an increase over the same period last year 33.5%), 194.2 thousand tons of timber (1%). At the universal transshipment complex processed 1.6 million tons of coal and ferrous metal, which is almost 22% more than 7 months a year

Remember the port Taman? He repeats the fate of Ust-Luga

Here unfolds is truly one of the most ambitious projects of modern Russia — a seaport "Taman".

Throughput of the port

According to the project by 2015, the design capacity of the port is 30 million tons of cargo a year — the third place in Russia. The master plan provides for the handling of 94 million tons.

For 10 months in 2009 handled 70 million tons of liquid cargo

In 2010 the cargo turnover amounted to 250 thousand tons In 2011 the turnover of the port amounted to 1.2 million

One for all the mega-continent

April 24, 2012 9:26

You never were concerned about how it will look from space Earth in a few hundred million years?

Geologists believe that billions of years ago the continents disconnected again "eager" to meet, to unite and form a common, but a vast continent, Pangea Supernova.

This continent is, of course, will be polar, which is not particularly good for our very distant descendants, but how do we know who will be at that time living in our beloved planet.

If you believe the conclusions of scientists, similar supercontinent existed on the planet and a very, very

March 3 to see Mars in all its glory will be from Earth

Red planet reaches the point in its orbit, called the opposition — it happens once in 780 daysMarch 3 this year, Mars will reach a point in its orbit, called the opposition — to monitor the planet will be convenient from the Earth. At such times — it happens once every 780 days (minus 1 hour, 26 minutes and 24 seconds, to be exact) — Red Planet ever beautiful.   

The opposition of Mars is opposite the Sun. It rises at sunset, is held high at midnight at the peak brightness for a year, reports infuture.ru. http://www.infuture.ru/article/5780. But every opposition

Oceans then cooled, then heated

Two million years ago the temperature the Indian and Pacific oceans has changed

Two million years ago to replace the forests in East Africa came pastures, and the number of species living there markedly increased, appeared the conditions for the emergence of the ancestors of antelopes and horses. Why? With so much influence on the climate? This question puzzled researchers from Columbia University (USA). And Professor Peter Demenokalyu probably find the answer.

In his view, were the cause of variations in ocean temperatures along the equator. They determine the present situation for precipitation. In the west equatorial Pacific

There was some evidence of ancient lithospheric plate gap in the north-western U.S.

Ancient giant eruption in the north-western United States could in fact be caused by rupture of the earth's crust.

Evidence of active volcanism in Yellowstone National Park is the valley of the Columbia River basalts. Lava covered a large area. For about two million years has been regurgitated over 230 thousand miles? molten rock. Typically, these traps are formed when the top of a giant mantle plume (mushroom vertical flow of magma that rises from the depths of the earth) reaches the surface. In this case, however, the cause could be elsewhere.

Scientists conducted a computer simulation of the complex

Extinction of animals does not lead to the formation of new species

In the Earth's history, paleontologists are five major mass extinctions of species, the last case of 65.5 million years ago and led to the extinction of dinosaurs. Previously it was believed that the extinction of one leads to the rapid development of others.

It turned out that this is not true — American paleontologists have concluded that the explosive expansion of the species diversity is not necessarily associated with episodes of mass extinction. With the disappearance of almost disappears and the competition, and it is a factor in evolutionary explosion, RIA Novosti reported. A group led by David Bapst

Half a million trees planted conifers environmentalists in the Altai Mountains in two weeks

Already half a million conifer seedlings donated to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Russia and the company-sponsored, landed in the Altai Mountains in mid-May of this year in place of dead and felled trees, told RIA Novosti on Wednesday, a representative of the Altai-Sayan Branch of WWF Russia Tatiana Ivanitskaya.

In early May, she told me that the fund together with the cosmetics company Yves Rocher has presented the Altai Mountains one million trees. New Forest — the young fir, larch and pine trees that are planted forestry experts of the Altai Mountains, will appear in 2012 in six

Earth died out more than once

Photo: USGS Over the past 500 million years happened five mass extinctions, during which disappears up to 95% of all animal species that inhabit the Earth. Igor Popov knows what could cause this.

The study of geological layers that are deposited during the long history of the Earth draws majestic picture of global changes of fauna and flora: some organisms in many disappear and others appear. Studies of such events ("biostratigraphic events" or "biosobyty") are important, because on the basis of these data the geologic time scale — scheme and periodization. It is the basis of geology, and hence

Half a million carp fingerlings launched into the lake Ivan (Amur region)

Half a million carp fingerlings September 25 launched into the lake Ivan management staff "Rosrybolovstva" Trans-Baikal Territory. The fish arrived safely in the refrigerator of the Irkutsk region.

To stay prepared them carefully: no food for three days and gradually cooled water. Fry overcame the distance more than a thousand miles in 26 hours.

At Fry took about one and a half million rubles. The money received from the compensation payments businesses that somehow damage the water — and get paid for this state.

According to preliminary calculations, the running of the fish should survive seventy percent. A
