Halley Research Station, Antarctica: calving risks and monitoring strategies

first_imgThe British Antarctic Survey’s Halley Research Station is located on the Brunt Ice Shelf, Antarctica, where it is potentially vulnerable to calving events. Existing historical records show that the Brunt Ice Shelf is currently extended further into the Weddell Sea than it was before its last large calving event, so a new calving event may be overdue. We describe three different possible future scenarios for a large-scale calving event on Brunt Ice Shelf, and conclude that the currently most threatening scenario for the Halley Research Station is a calving event on the neighbouring Stancomb–Wills Glacier Tongue, with subsequent detrimental consequences for the stability of the Brunt Ice Shelf. Based on available data, we suggest an increasing likelihood of this scenario occurring after 2020. We furthermore describe ongoing monitoring efforts aimed at giving advanced warning of an imminent calving event.last_img read more

She was suffering from the early stages of dementia and called her death a suicide. Wellington woman ended her life with Nembutal in 2006, after receiving advice on how to obtain it from Dr Nitschke. She was a life-member of EXIT and was suffering from depression. woman died from Nembutal and presented their story as an affidavit in the Lecretia Seales case in May this year. South Island man known as John stated in 2009 that he intended to end his life using Nembutal. He was suffering from cancer.“Dr Nitschke said there were several clear reasons for this trend. Most significant was the aging of the population and the increasing availability of information and drugs capable of providing people with a reliable and peaceful death…“Reliable sources of the premier euthanasia drug Nembutal are now readily obtained on the internet, and at Exit we encourage elderly people to source this drug…“Exit has also been instruments in providing elderly New Zealanders with supplies of MaxDog nitrogen, another practical method that guarantees the option of a peaceful death. In particular, the use of MaxDog nitrogen also ensures that the cause death will be impossible to determine, if this is the wish of the person ending their life”×600-normal-0-false-false-false-en.html<A HREF=""><IMG SRC="" BORDER=0 WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=600 ALT="Advertisement"></A><A HREF=""><IMG SRC="" BORDER=0 WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=600 ALT="Advertisement"></A><A HREF=""><IMG SRC="" BORDER=0 WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=600 ALT="Advertisement"></A><A HREF=""><IMG SRC="" BORDER=0 WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=600 ALT="Advertisement"></A>last_img read more
