Encontra fonte de calor subterrânea por baixo de glaciar na Antártida

June 28, 2018 -- Ao analisarem amostras de água da Antártida, os cientistas descobriram
uma substancial fonte de calor por baixo do glaciar de Pine Island.

Elevated levels of helium-3 gas detected in the waters around Pine Island glacier indicate volcanic activity beneath the ice sheet – exhibiting as much as 25 times more thermal energy than a dormant volcano.

The volcanic heat source is one more factor to account for when modelling the stability of the West Antarctic Ice Shelf. The shelf's stability has serious implications for the future of sea level rising.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
