first_imgRecent detailed mapping, section logging and an improved understanding of the geological evolution of the Antarctic Peninsula provide a robust framework for an improved lithostratigraphic subdivision of the Latady Basin, eastern Ellsworth Land. Within the Latady Basin we recognize two main groups: Ellsworth Land Volcanic Group and Latady Group. The focus of this paper is the Latady Group, which is formally subdivided into five formations: Anderson Formation, Witte Formation, Hauberg Mountains Formation, Cape Zumberge Formation and Nordsim Formation. Middle Jurassic, shallow marine deposits of the Anderson Formation are overlain by quiet anoxic deposits assigned to the Witte Formation. The start of the Late Jurassic is marked by the deposition of higher energy deposits of the Hauberg Mountains Formation, subdivided into three members (Long Ridge, Mount Hirman and Novocin members) that reflect varying lithological and environmental characteristics. Thermal subsidence during the latest Jurassic led to deposition of the basinal Cape Zumberge Formation, while uplift of an active continental arc along the Antarctic Peninsula led to deposition of the terrestrial Nordsim Formation in the latest Jurassic to earliest Cretaceous. The evolution of the Latady Basin reflects early extension during Gondwana break-up, from the Early Jurassic to earliest Cretaceous, and is consistent with a shift in the underlying forces driving extension in the Weddell Sea area from intracontinental rifting related to a mantle plume, to active margin forces in response to subduction.last_img read more

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today VIDEO: Polish Navy Choses Saab’s Double Eagle System for Kormoran II MCMV VIDEO: Polish Navy Choses Saab’s Double Eagle System for Kormoran II MCMV View post tag: II Defence and security company Saab announces that the Polish Navy has chosen the Double Eagle system for the Kormoran II MCMV. Industry news The Double Eagle is in service with several navies, in the Baltic Sea, in the North Sea and around the world as a state of the art, well proven, low risk and extremely efficient mine countermeasures (MCM) underwater vehicle“This adds another Navy to our client list for the Double Eagle System” says Agneta Kammeby, Vice President and Head of Saab’s Business Unit Underwater Systems, “and shows that ROV’s stills forms the base for MCM in all modern Navies”.Jason Howard, Head of Naval Segment CEE, Saab Market Area Europe and Greater Middle East, adds “this is further proof that Saab’s efforts to position itself in the Polish naval market are starting to bear fruit. It is our belief that this achievement will increase Saab’s chances to secure additional business in upcoming naval projects in Poland.”The Double Eagle concept uses a modular approach to provide flexible systems for MCM and Maritime Security. It is aimed at providing a hydro dynamically stable, highly reliable system with exceptional performance and low life cycle cost. The Double Eagle, available in MkII, MkIII and Sarov versions, is used by navies around the world on many types of ships. It has also been adapted to the craft of opportunities (COOP) concept where the Double Eagle is integrated in a container that easily can be installed on almost any type of ship.The design was from day one targeted on modular design and open architecture with the possibility to replace main system elements. This allows upgrades and reconfiguration, enabling use of new technology and changes in naval tactics/strategy as part of an evolutionary strategy. This has led to a system where core functionality and core subsystems have been reused in several products and configurations, all to provide system with extreme stability yet still highly manoeuvrable.The new generation of Double Eagle is able to operate both as a battery powered AUV and a as a conventional tethered ROV. As a new feature the AUV will be able to find and by automatic dock with the tether while still in the water. This will enable download of collected data and recharge of batteries without any risky launch and recovery operations.[mappress]Press Release, June 10, 2014; Image: Saab View post tag: MCMV View post tag: Navy Share this article June 10, 2014 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Double View post tag: Eagle View post tag: Kormoran View post tag: Choses View post tag: Saab View post tag: Polish View post tag: system View post tag: Navallast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Jimmy Neesham had acquired a reputation as a big-hitter in the domestic Twenty20 circuit. Such was his ferocity of hitting that whenever he hit an aggressive knock, people would say, “Unleash the Neesh”. In the first ODI of 2019, Neesham provided magnificent fireworks in the first ODI against Sri Lanka at Mount Maunganui. Such was his devastating batting that had there been some more overs to spare, he would have broken the record for the fastest fifty ever in ODIs. However, his late-hitting blitz propelled New Zealand to a massive score of 371/6 as they looked to take a 1-0 series lead in the three-match series against Sri Lanka.Martin Guptill’s blazing 14th century and Kane Williamson’s 76 helped New Zealand lay a solid foundation for a big score. Guptill became the fifth New Zealand player to go past 6000 runs and he also went past Brendon McCullum’s tally of runs to end up as the fourth highest run-getter for his side in the ODI format. Following Guptill’s dismissal, New Zealand looked to have their momentum stalled as some tight bowling by the Sri Lankans gave them hope that they could pull it back. Enter Jimmy Neesham and he changed the complexion of the game totally.Read More | Guptill enters special club, goes past 6000 ODI runs for New ZealandAfter taking three runs off two balls in Lasith Malinga’s final over, Neesham decided to go after Thisara Perera in the 49th over. Mount Maunganui witnessed carnage. The first ball was blasted over deep midwicket for the first six while the second ball was launched over long on for a second six. Neesham achieved a spectacular hat-trick by slicing a full ball down the ground for a third six. The fourth ball also disappeared into the grass banks again and it seemed Yuvraj Singh, Sir Garfield Sobers and Herschelle Gibbs would soon have company.Read More | Kapil Dev hails Indian cricket team’s current crop of fast bowlersPerera felt then pressure and he bowled a waist-high full toss which was clobbered for a couple. The fifth legitimate ball was also mauled out of the ground and the 97-meter six landed on the roof of the long on stand. However, Perera finally nailed the yorker properly as Neesham managed just a single as 34 runs were hit in the 49th over. In the final over bowled by Nuwan Pradeep, Neesham hit a couple of braces before ending the innings in style with a glorious inside-out six over wide long off. His 47 off 13 balls helped New Zealand end on the ultimate high.If Neesham had achieved six sixes in an over, he would have been the second batsman to achieve this in ODIs, with Gibbs hitting six sixes off Dan van Bunge against Netherlands in the 2007 World Cup in West Indies. Ravi Shastri and Sobers hit six sixes in First Class cricket while Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes in one over bowled by Stuart Broad in the World T20 match against England in Durban. His fifty off 12 balls remains the fastest-ever in the shortest format of the game.
