This symposium, held in Argentina in March 2003, commemorates Otto Nordenskjöld’s 1901 excursion, and will pay tribute to the Swedish and Argentinian explorers who took at the problem of early fieldwork in Patagonia and Antarctica. This subject is prolonged to incorporate fresh fieldwork within the common sciences within the Archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic Peninsula and the sub-Antarctic seas, and celebrates the fruitfulness of constant Swedish-Argentinian clinical cooperation.

The symposium and linked actions happened within the towns of Buenos Aires, l. a. Plata and Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego), and this ebook incorporates a choice of the main major contributions offered on the assembly.

Download e-book for iPad: What Is Natural?: Coral Reef Crisis by Jan Sapp

As a wedge within the mirrored image of our coral reef administration coverage, crown-of-thorns starfish outbreaks attracted people's realization on our deteriorating reef environments. With the worry of biodiversity conservation, Jan Sapp incorporated and arranged records of medical experiences and political occasions to envision the proposed purposes of starfish plagues and its impression on worldwide reef administration.

Cold-Water Corals: The Biology and Geology of Deep-Sea Coral by J. Murray Roberts, Andrew Wheeler, André Freiwald, Stephen PDF

There are extra coral species in deep, cold-waters than in tropical coral reefs. This broad-ranging therapy is the 1st to synthesise present knowing of all kinds of cold-water coral, protecting their ecology, biology, palaeontology and geology. starting with a background of study within the box, the authors describe the ways had to research corals within the deep sea.

Sample text

For this purpose Hagerman founded a consulting firm, Hagconsult AB. The Argentine-Swedish cooperation has been resumed in more recent time, after some years’ deplorable break. It has taken place partly within the activity of INQUA (International Union for Quaternary Research), especially within its Commission on Genesis and Lithology of Quaternary Deposits (later: Commission on Glaciation). There were long discussions especially within its Work Group for genesis and classification of Quaternary deposits.

Many of them were mapped in detail, a work that is still considered correct into details. In this work he had invaluable help of topographic maps made by the great Argentinean geographer, Francisco Moreno. He wanted to extend his work also to the Chilean side of the Andes but for bureaucratic reasons this became virtually impossible. However, he could do some studies also at Lago Llanquihue and the Chiloë Island. The mapping is without any doubt the most valuable outcome of Caldenius’s work in South America.

When Caldenius discussed the dating possibilities of the event he had again become critical against long-distance correlation of varves or “teleconnections”. Caldenius was also responsible for one geological map sheet, scale 1:50,000. 21 It was a masterpiece and according to him it should serve as a model for future maps. Unfortunately, neither economy nor time permits such detailed work nowadays when shortsighted demands for ostensible profit control geological mapping. Although service for the Geological Survey implied work only in Sweden, Caldenius never lost his interest in international cooperation.
