Rb-Sr geochronology of Graham Land, Antarctica

first_imgThirty-five new Rb-Sr whole-rock and mineral isochrons are reported for igneous rocks from Graham Land. Magmatism was essentially continuous but peaks of activity occurred in early Jurassic, early Cretaceous, late Cretaceous and Eocene times. The oldest dated granite is Triassic (209 ± 3 Ma). Volcanic rocks were erupted throughout this history and some previously supposed Upper Jurassic volcanic rocks must be mid-Cretaceous or younger. A change in magma type, from uniformly acid to predominantly basic or intermediate, combined with westward migration of the arc, may be partly responsible for previously reported transverse geochemical variations. There is a marked trend of decreasing initial 87Sr/86Sr ratio of the plutonic rocks with time, from c. 0.707 to 0.704, although volcanic rocks tend to have higher values. This trend is ascribed to the waning influence of an, as yet unidentified, pre-magmatic crustal basement, due to increasing depth of magma generation. Close parallels to the observed age pattern imply continuity of the Andean belt through southern South America into Graham Land back to early Mesozoic times and are not compatible with reconstructions of Gondwana in which the Antarctic Peninsula is located W of South America.last_img read more

Head Lice.

first_imgChances are, you’ve either had head lice or know someone whohas. But what are they, and how do people get them?”Head lice are one of three types of lice that feed onhuman blood,” said Miranda Brooks, a Pickens County senior4-H’er. “The insect lives its entire life cycle on the headsof humans.”Brooks was a state 4-H winner this year for her project onhead lice. She studied the insect pest and worked to educate hercommunity on ways to control them.Her efforts included volunteering to help with head checksin her local primary school, writing an article for her localnewspaper, presenting a program to the PTA and creating displaysfor use in schools and the public library.What They Look LikeHead lice are flat, have no wings and are about an eighth ofan inch long.”They’re about the size of a sesame seed,” Brookssaid. “They’re almost clear when they hatch and dirty-whiteto brownish-black when they mature. Their color changes as theyfeed on blood.”How They TravelIf they have no wings and don’t jump, how do head lice travelfrom head to head?”Many times lice are spread by head-to-head contact,”Brooks said. “That’s why outbreaks are more common in lowerelementary grades where children are more likely to hug a friend,touch his hair or wrestle on the floor.”Lice also travel from person to person on brushes, combs, hairclips, caps, hats, scarves and jackets. Sports helmets and headsetsused for computers and music equipment are also a means of transferringlice.”Cold weather brings on the spread of lice due to caps,hats and scarves being piled together in school coat closets,”Brooks said. “The lice can crawl from garment to garmentand eventually up onto the neck and into the hair of a new host.”Who Gets Them and Who Doesn’tLice are rarely found on the heads of African-American childrenand adults. “Researchers have always known that for somereason, black children were not infested with the type of headlice most commonly found in America,” Brooks said. “Buthead lice do infest blacks in Africa.”The American head louse has a claw adapted to clinging to theround hair shafts of Caucasians.Itching and scratching are the first signs of lice infestation.”If you suspect you have head lice, have someone checkyour head for signs,” Brooks said. “The lice are tiny,shy away from light and move quickly. So it’s much easier to checkfor nits, which are lice eggs. Nits are normally found aroundthe nape of the neck, behind the ears and at the crown of thehead.”What Do Nits Look Like?Nits appear as tiny, silvery specks attached to the hair shaft.They may appear to be flakes of dandruff, but they don’t flakeoff easily. Sometimes debris or hair oil is mistaken for a nit.If the spot moves easily up and down the hair shaft, it’s nota nit.Once you have determined you have head lice, treat your hairwith lice removal treatment. Follow label instructions.last_img read more
