Seasonal variations of the gravity wave momentum flux in the Antarctic mesosphere and lower thermosphere


first_imgAirglow imager and dynasonde/imaging Doppler interferometer (IDI) radar wind measurements at Halley Station, Antarctica (75.6degreesS, 26.6degreesW) have been used to estimate the seasonal variation of the vertical fluxes of horizontal momentum carried by high-frequency atmospheric gravity waves. The cross-correlation coefficients between the vertical and horizontal wind perturbations were calculated from sodium (Na) airglow imager data collected during the austral winter seasons of 2000 and 2001. These were combined with wind velocity variances from coincident radar measurements to estimate the daily averaged upper limit of the vertical flux of horizontal momentum due to gravity waves. The resulting momentum flux at the Na airglow altitudes, while displaying a large day-to-day variability, showed a marked rotation from the northwest to the southeast throughout the winter season. Calculations show that this rotation is consistent with seasonal changes in the wind field filtering of gravity waves below the Na airglow region. The calculations also indicate that while the magnitude of the meridional wind is small, this filtering leads to the observed seasonal changes in the meridional momentum flux.last_img read more

Will Hutton named as Hertford’s new Principal


first_imgThis week, journalist, economist, political analyst and author Will Hutton was named the new Principal of Hertford College, to start this Trinity term.As a public figure best known for his role on BBC programmes such as Newsnight and his editorship of the Observer, Hutton’s status as a high profile personality makes him an interesting choice for a college which prides itself on being one of the most progressive at Oxford.The college’s Senior Fellow, Dr Toby Barnard, said, “Hertford is delighted to have Will Hutton as its next Principal. He promises to continue and enhance the college’s enviable reputation for innovation, open access, friendliness and intellectual distinction.“There is foul weather ahead for all universities, but particularly for Oxford colleges. Hertford is confident that, with Will Hutton’s dynamism and experience of public life, it will emerge from the impending storms much strengthened.”Hutton himself seemed excited at the prospect of serving “a great Oxford college at a pre-eminent world university,” citing, “a genuine meeting of minds between the fellowship and myself that is exhilarating.”He has spent the last decade at the helm of The Work Foundation, a not-for-profit think-tank that aims to improve the performance and quality of working life, and has also written many books on economic and political subjects.Academically, Hutton’s experience is equally varied, as a governor of London School of Economics, a visiting professor at the University of Manchester Business School and the University of Bristol, and a visiting fellow at Mansfield College Oxford.Hertford’s JCR President, James Weinberg commented that, “[Hutton’s] emphasis on facilitating and participating in open discussion and debate was a delight to hear and would not only foster greater cohesion within Hertford but would inject vitality into college life.” He added, that Mr Hutton “will not be afraid to ‘rock the boat’ in defence of our collective principles” and that, “that enthusiasm and determination is exactly what Hertford needs to make things happen, both internally and externally.”As Principal, Mr. Hutton will have overall responsibility for students’ academic work, as well as an interest in their wider activities – social, sporting, cultural, political. He will also lead the various staff teams in college, and represent the college in the university and beyond.Whilst many students will welcome the renowned economist and successful public intellectual into their midst, some still harboured doubts about his appointment.An undergraduate student, who wished to remain anonymous, stated that Will Hutton’s long and recent involvement with The Work Foundation “from many perspectives has been detrimental due to that very fact that he would like to turn everything into a thinktank.“This, I feel, could really affect Hertford as a college in that it is a notoriously active one (on all sorts of fronts – political, charity, etc), and the fact that a principal might not endorse that, or might have little understanding of that feeling, is worrying.”However, in a report written after interviewing the candidates for Principal, Weinberg concluded, “If we want to be put on the map…if we want someone with drive and originality, as well as the channels through which to exercise it in our favour; then Will Hutton is the man for the job.”Whether Hutton can live up to such high expectations and praise, or whether he will struggle against the impending tide of higher education cuts, and the idiosyncrasies of Oxford life, remains to be seen.last_img read more

viewpoint


first_imgBread prices have at last begun to rise, but this mainly reflects the mammoth increases in flour and energy prices. Our world poll on bread prices (pg 4), collated by the Economics Intelligence Unit, is up to date for September 2006. The places on the chart showing the price of bread in London and Manchester make shameful reading!But a turnaround is beginning. For years bread has often suffered negative press. Most of us who travelled and returned home to see economy white loaves filling the shelves and Atkins diet filling the media understood why.However, with health to the fore and fantastic ranges now available from premium white to white with bits, cottage loaves to pain de campagne, plus new ’healthy’ perceptions of brown, wholemeal, seeded and organic, things have definitely changed. Bread is achieving a new status alongside its new price, which goes through the £1 barrier for the first time this month in many shops and stores.Elevating the price will also elevate the image of bread and is one reason why the increase must be maintained. The flour and energy price rises have received national media coverage so consumers know why bread will cost more.Millers are also telling me organic bread sales are growing. The problem is availability of home-grown organic wheat – a topic I hope will be covered by Lord Peter Melchett of the Soil Association, who is due to give the annual City Food Lecture at Guildhall next week. The event is co-sponsored by the Real Good Food Company, which announced good results this week (pg 12).Also this week we find out how Greenhalgh’s craft bakery set about creating a new look (pg 23) and artisan bakers Barton & White cope with supplying the demanding restaurant trade (pg 26). On the industrial side, we speak to Maple Leaf, which is doing well in the bagel market and has completed a bold series of acquisitions (pg 18).Meanwhile, Budgens buyer Nick Hill outlines what suppliers need to know (pg 16) and in our Friday Essay BakeMark’s Vera Malhotra (pg 15) explains why the emphasis on health means rebalancing recipes is so important – are you aware of what’s going on?last_img read more

News story: Pioneering solutions to defence and security challenges to be explored at White City


first_imgDASA has taken up residency in Central Working White City – located on the 4th floor of the I-HUB – a facility which co-locates businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs alongside Imperial’s extensive network of researchers, academics and other corporate partners. This is an additional hub to DASA’s growing outreach.The move comes as Imperial and DASA sign an agreement to explore opportunities for collaboration in research, enterprise and innovation activities that could provide advantages to the UK’s defence and security.The partnership is be led by Imperial’s Institute of Security Science and Technology (ISST), an interdisciplinary research hub which envisages, designs and coordinates the application of science and technology to answer pressing security challenges relating to financial systems, climate and the environment, healthcare, critical infrastructure and biosecurity.A joint management team, under the supervision of College lead and ISST Co-Director Professor Bill Lee and ISST Deputy Director Dr Deeph Chana, is overseeing the partnership. Professor Bill Lee said: “At the ISST we bring together the best minds from academia, government and industry to tackle some of the most pressing defence and security challenges of our time. We know the value of collaboration. Our co-location with DASA gives scope for new partnerships, research and commercialisation activities to enhance these efforts. We’re delighted to welcome them.”The co-location with DASA signals Imperial’s vision for a cluster of Critical Infrastructure specialists at its White City campus. Earlier this year, Aerospace giant Airbus established an innovation hub for its Defence and Space division in Central Working White City.Professor David Gann CBE, Vice President (Innovation) said: “Our world is facing new and ever-changing threats. To protect the essential services that underpin our economy, security, and health, we need bright minds, innovative technologies, and creative ideas. White City ticks all these boxes. It boasts a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem where high-growth technology companies, world leading academics and corporate partners work side by side. DASA is a natural fit for White City, and they are just one of a cluster of critical infrastructure accelerators and innovation labs to take up residence alongside Imperial, Airbus and others at the campus.”Dr Lucy Mason, Head of the Defence and Security Accelerator, said: “I am excited to see this new phase in the development of DASA. Our presence at I-HUB gives us access to innovative start-ups and world class academics across a wide range of disciplines, and promotes collaborative working between the Government, academia and the private sector. This partnership is an excellent example of reaching out beyond the traditional boundaries of defence and security and engaging widely to solve problems together through open innovation”.Professor Hugh Durrant-Whyte, Chief Scientific Adviser to the MOD said: “The partnership between DASA and Imperial at the College’s White City campus is of critical importance in Defence modernisation. This exciting partnership brings together the skills, technology and resources to impact future defence capabilities and the way these are delivered.”last_img read more

The trackworker was one of a group walking along the track to a railway access point. The train was travelling at approximately 95 km/h (59 mph) when the driver applied the emergency brake and was slowing down as the track worker moved clear immediately before the train passed.We have undertaken a preliminary examination into the circumstances surrounding this incident. Having assessed the evidence which has been gathered to date, we have decided to publish a safety digest.The safety digest will be made available on our website in the next few weeks.last_img read more

Glamwiches are on the rise


first_imgA new lunchtime trend – ‘the glamwich’ – has been emerging as more and more Brits are making their own packed lunches at home.According to new research from cheese brand Pilgrims Choice, 69% of Brits now make a packed lunch, up 45% on pre-recession figures, with 48% making a sandwich.Of those consumers who make their own lunch, almost half (47%) said they ‘pimped up’ their sandwich by changing the fillings to make it more exciting, said the firm.Saving money was a key reason behind the rise in homemade packed lunches, with the average consumer saving around £29 a month by making their own, according to Pilgrims Choice.The study also revealed that one-third of all consumers (32%) were using high-quality cheese to add glamour to a sandwich. A fifth (21%) bought “more interesting bread”, while one in 10 sandwich-makers were adding ingredients such as olives or pesto. Twelve per cent said they tried to replicate sandwiches they had bought or seen in shops, while 18% had a preference for adding sweet chilli sauce to their packed lunch.Alastair Jackson, marketing director at Pilgrims Choice, said: “You only need to look at popular television shows, such as MasterChef, Come Dine With Me and Great British Bake Off to see that there is a huge consumer appetite for all things foodie and why should this stop when eating ‘al desko’. “This research illustrates that, as we celebrate the 250th year of the sandwich, consumers are taking sandwich-making to a new level. There is now a renewed interest in not only the content but also a need to make presentation ever more appealing.”last_img read more
