MASSIVE EARTHQUAKES FORM GOLD VEINS Scientists have long known that veins of gold are formed by mineral deposition from hot fluids flowing through cracks deep in Earth’s crust. But a study published today in Nature Geoscience has found that the process can occur almost instantaneously — possibly within a few tenths of a second.

Originally made for the executives of the mines, now a must play course for any golfing nutter or fanatic. Come check it out Newman information & tourist attractions are brought to you by World Holiday Destination. Book your Newman Accommodation Newman is a town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It is located about 1,186 kilometres (737 mi) north of Perth, and 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) north of the Tropic of Capricorn. It can be reached by the Great Northern Highway. In the 2006 Australian census, its population was 4,245. Newman is a modern mining town, with suburban-style homes contrasting with the surrounding reddish desert. The Hickman Crater is 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Newman. Commercial area ============ Typical of company towns, Newman is laid out with a core, where shopping and hotels are located, surrounded by residential areas, with more industrial activities on the outskirts. There is one shopping mall in the town, two shopping plazas, three hotels, and three bars/restaurants outside of those contained in the hotels. One public outdoor pool serves the town's population. Transport ============ A privately owned railway, the Mount Newman railway, was constructed linking it to Port Hedland which itself was upgraded to handle shipment of the ore to the world market. On 21 June 2001 a train 7.353 km (4.569 mi) long, comprising 682 ore cars and eight locomotives made the Newman—Port Hedland trip and is listed as the world's longest ever train. The ore trains are typically over 2 km long. Newman is also a service town to the nearby mining settlements like Tom Price and Paraburdoo. The town is served by Newman Airport. Architecture ========== Being founded in the 1960s, Newman's architecture reflects the modernist styles of that decade and the next, being predominantly functional and devoid of detail or embellishment. As the town was founded and built by a steel company, the majority of buildings use a steel frame construction. This applies to the suburban style homes themselves, most of them being two prefabricated halves inserted together into a steel I-section frame, the columns of which are left exposed on the exterior of the home. This construction method serves not only to showcase the company's product, but also gives strong resistance to cyclone winds which can affect the region from time to time. For this same reason, most houses are elevated from the ground by a few steps. Many houses also have large air-conditioning units situated next to them to provide adequate cooling against the very hot summer temperatures. Climate ========== Newman has an arid climate, with very hot summers and mild winters. The temperature reaches or exceeds over 38°C almost every day in the summer. On 15 January 1998, the temperature reached an all-time recorded high of 47.0°C. Precipitation is sparse, but the influx of monsoonal moisture in the summer, which generally begins in December and lasts until April, raises humidity levels and can cause occasional heavy storms. Winter months are mild to warm, with daily high temperatures ranging from the 20°C to 26°C (18-22°C), and low (nighttime) temperatures rarely dipping below 6°C.

These salt lakes are what remain of the ancient river systems. These fill up and even flood during heavy rainfall that occurs every few years. This gives rise to a plethora of life, such as invertebrates and fish, which in turn attract large colonies of waterbirds who breed while food and water resources are plentiful. Other early accounts describe a road across this lake South of Dumbleyung and was used by Katanning settlers to cart produce to the goldfields in the 1890s. This was the opportunity for local farmers to make a fortune as quickly as the miners. They would load their wagons with flour, sugar, oatmeal, jam and baking flour and when they got to the goldfields actually auction their produce. Prospectors Pushing Wheel Barrows to the Kalgoorlie Gold Rush of 1893 http://museum.wa.gov.au/explore/wa-goldfields/rush-gold/on-track Western Australian gold rushes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Australian_gold_rushes Paddy Hannan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paddy_Hannan First Dumbleyung Explorer - Henry Maxwell Lefroy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Maxwell_Lefroy Dumbleyung - Western Australia Dumbleyung (including Lake Dumbleyung) Small wheatbelt town with famous lake nearby Dumbleyung is a small wheatbelt town located 275 km south east of Perth. No one knows exactly how the town got its name but it is likely that it is a corruption of the local Aboriginal word 'dambeling' which probably meant 'large stretch of water'. An alternative theory argues that it may well be derived from 'dumbung' which either meant a native pear tree or an Aboriginal game played with bent sticks and a hard piece of fruit. Although in many ways Dumbleyung is a typical wheatbelt town there is one event in its history which makes it uniquely important and separates it from the dozens of other towns in the area. On New Years Eve 1964, after a particularly wet winter had seen the lake fill to overflowing, Donald Campbell set the world water speed record when he raced his boat Bluebird across the lake at the remarkable speed of 444.66 km/h (276.3 mph). This made him the fastest man both on land and on water. A unique double. A memorial to Donald Campbell's achievements is located on Pussy Cat Hill on the lake shoreline. Offering excellent views over the lake, it is clearly signposted 'Scenic Drive - Lake Dumbleyung' on the road from Wagin to Dumbleyung. Lake Dumbleyung, undoubtedly the area's great attraction, is the largest natural body of inland water in West Australia. It is approximately 13 km long by 6.5 km wide with a catchment area which extends approximately 64 km north towards Kulin, 64 km south towards Narrangerup and 55 km east to Tarin Rock. In the years when it overflows the water takes a course through the Wagin Lakes into the Beaufort River, thence the Blackwood and into the sea at Augusta. The first recorded sighting of the lake was in 1843 when two explorers Henry Landor and Henry Maxwell Lefroy travelled through the area looking for pastoral lands and a large body of water which had been mentioned by the local Aborigines. Landor and Lefroy described Lake Dumbleyung in their journal entry for 17 January 1843. 'After riding 10 miles, we came in sight of Dambeling, the largest of the lakes - 13 miles by 7 or 8. It is like the others, shallow with many low islands in varied and beautiful form. On the northern and eastern shores, there is a good grazing country down to the lake, ending in precipitous banks and extending over the hills 2 or 3 miles distant from the lake. The water is salt and the shore long, flat and muddy, on which we saw the impressions of two stray horses and a foal...'

Mount Isa, today very much a ghost town rather than Australia's largest copper producer and major source of lead and zinc. The industrial dispute stretching into months of deadlock has caused a complete shutdown of underground mining, and the resultant economic repercussion are little short of disastrous. Every working day this huge plant lies idle costs Australia a loss in export income of 135,000. Obviously, millions of pounds are involved. Intervening, the Queensland Govenment issued emergency orders in Council, principally aimed at preventing Labour Council President, McMahon, and unofficials miner's leader, Pat Mackie from returning to Mount Isa, after Trade union-Fund Raising discussions in Sydney. This is a memorial to Campbell Miles, who first discovered mineral in the Mount Isa area in 1923. In those days isa was a cattle town and transit point for the wide-spread stations throughout the channel country. It was, and still is, a hard, rugged expanse which could perhaps best enjoy the typical description of a "thirsty brown land". The hill country on the outskirts of Mount Isa, where prospectors search for the bonanza, and which, when it was found, turned out to be a virtual mountain of copper. Active mining commenced in 1932, and the first signs of a vast industry began to show. Isolated from civilization, the attraction of big money brought miners to work, and then to stay, with their families to work, as the town continued its growth. Preparing for compulsory conferences aimed at settlement, representatives of unions involved. JACK DEVERAUX, HARRY PEEBLES and COL. EMERY.

Cavegus said, “I’ve seen this thingy around and would like to know if it is real or fake? I took a long look at the video. It starts out on a beach with lots of white sand, wanders around for awhile, then comes across a washed up mermaid corpse in the mangroves. It then lingers over the mermaid, taking a variety of shots to show us all the details… the back, the skin, the head, the hair and even the face. Caveguy, I don’t have to do a lot of work on this one because guess what… I already explained this one in another video of mine. In that video, I revealed that what we aere looking at is actually a hoax - It was made to help promote the work of a taxidermist from Tampa, Florida - called Juan Cabana. It was all part of a hoax to help him sell his creation on ebay… which he got 1500 for… Now let’s see is this video real, or fake… let me think. Ok, I’m going to call it fake.

The Outback is the vast, remote, arid area of Australia. The term "the outback" is generally used to refer to locations that are comparatively more remote than those areas named "the bush" which, colloquially, can refer to any lands outside the main urban areas. Early European exploration of inland Australia was sporadic. More focus was on the more accessible and fertile coastal areas. The first party to successfully cross the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney was led by Gregory Blaxland in 1813, 25 years after the colony was established. People starting with John Oxley in 1817, 1818 and 1821, followed by Charles Sturt in 1829–1830 attempted to follow the westward-flowing rivers to find an "inland sea", but these were found to all flow into the Murray River and Darling River which turn south. Over the period 1858 to 1861, John McDouall Stuart led six expeditions north from Adelaide into the outback, culminating in successfully reaching the north coast of Australia and returning, without the loss of any of the party's members' lives. This contrasts with the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition in 1860–61 which was much better funded, but resulted in the deaths of three of the members of the transcontinental party. The Overland Telegraph line was constructed in the 1870s along the route identified by Stuart. Exploration of the outback continued in the 1950s when Len Beadell explored, surveyed and built many roads in support of the nuclear weapons tests at Emu Field and Maralinga and rocket testing on the Woomera Prohibited Area. Mineral exploration continues as new mineral deposits are identified and developed. While the early explorers used horses to cross the outback, the first woman to make the journey riding a horse was Anna Hingley, who rode from Broome to Cairns in 2006. Other than agriculture and tourism, the main economic activity in this vast and sparsely settled area is mining. Owing to the complete absence of mountain building and glaciation since the Permian (in many areas since the Cambrian) ages, the outback is extremely rich in iron, aluminium, manganese and uranium ores, and also contains major deposits of gold, nickel, iron, lead and zinc ores. Because of its size, the value of grazing and mining is considerable. Major mines and mining areas in the outback include opals at Coober Pedy, Lightning Ridge and White Cliffs, metals at Broken Hill, Tennant Creek, Olympic Dam and the remote Challenger Mine. Oil and gas are extracted in the Cooper Basin around Moomba. In Western Australia the Argyle diamond mine in the Kimberley (Western Australia) is the world's biggest producer of natural diamonds and contributes approximately one-third of the world's natural supply. The Pilbara region's economy is dominated by mining and petroleum industries. Most of Australia's iron ore is also mined in the Pilbara and it also has one of the world's major manganese mines. Because of the low and erratic rainfall over most of the outback, combined with soils which are usually not very fertile, inland Australia is relatively sparsely settled. More than 90 percent of Australians live in urban areas on the coast. However the outback and the history of its exploration and settlement provides Australians with a culturally valued backdrop, and stories of swagmen, squatters, and bushrangers are central to the national ethos. The song "Waltzing Matilda", which is about a swagman and squatters, is probably Australia's best internationally known and best-loved song. Aboriginal communities in outback regions have not been displaced as they have been in areas of intensive agriculture and large cities, in coastal areas. For this reason a significant proportion of Australia's indigenous population lives in the Outback, in areas such as the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands in northern South Australia. The total population of the Outback in Australia declined from 700,000 in 1996 to 690,000 in 2006. Largest decline was noted in Outback NT, while Kimberley and Pilbara showed population increase during the same period. The sex ratio is 1040 males for 1000 females and 17% of the total population is indigenous. The Royal Flying Doctor Service started service in 1928 and helps people who live in the outback of Australia. In former times, serious injuries or illnesses often meant death due to the lack of proper medical facilities and trained personnel. In most outback communities, the number of children is too small for a conventional school to operate. Children are educated at home by the School of the Air. Originally the teachers communicated with the children via radio, but now satellite telecommunication is used instead.

Sundaland is in the tropics, surrounded by oceans, and within the Ring of Fire, where a large number of volcanic eruptions occur. Benefitting from the heavy precipitation, volcanic deposits in Sundaland develop into some of the richest forestry and agricultural lands, and developed into some of the richest fauna on Earth. The “Out of Africa” hypothesis is a theory that argues that every modern human being is descended from a small group in Africa, who then dispersed into the wider world. Most versions of the southern dispersal hypothesis suggests that modern humans left Africa between 130,000 and 70,000 years ago, and traveled along the coasts of Arabia, India and Sundaland, arriving in Australia by 50,000 to 40,000 years ago. The “Out of Sundaland” migration model argues that the origin of the Austronesian speakers is in the islands of Southeast Asia. Ideal climatic conditions and natural resources for development were found in Sundaland. After migrating from the semi-deserted savannas of Africa, man first found a place where food was abundant and it was there that they invented farming, agriculture, trading and civilization, which made humanity first flourished. A striking thing that can be observed in this model is the dispersal of population to the other part of the world about 11,000 years ago. An unusual event was happened here. The event is detected from the observation data. The change of the world temperature made the ice on the north pole to melt and the sea level continued to rise. Cracks in the earth’s crust as the weight of the ice shifted to the seas could set off catastrophic events. The most significant one is at the end of the Younger Dryas period. Earthquakes, volcano eruptions, super waves and floods engulfed the coastal cultures and all the flat continental shelves of Sundaland, and wiped out many populations. As the sea rolled in, there was a mass migration of the survivors from the sinking continent. From the legends, myths and tales, Sundaland has many names, among others are Garden of Eden, Paradise, Dilmun, Nippur, Nisir, Neserser, Ta Netjer, Land of Punt, Land of Ophir, Atlantis, Kumari Kandam, Pandya, Kangdez, Tollan and Siwan, Taprobana, and Golden Khersonese. The Destruction of Atlantis Plato mentioned that the island of Atlantis was beset, in a night and a day, by an earthquake and a flood in a night and a day, 9,000 years before Solon, or about 11,600 years ago. This accurately coincided with the cataclysm at the end of the Younger Dryas period. In some other his explanations, it is implied that the flood was coming from the sea, so the possibility is a tsunami. Plato did not recognize “tsunami” so he equated it to “flood”. Earthquakes and tsunamis are very often correlated. Frequent and significant earthquakes, tsunamis and volcano eruptions took place in Southeast Asia, one of the most complex tectonic region on Earth. Tsunami are known for their dramatic run-up heights, can also be excited or amplified in height considerably in shallow waters and on flat plains, and can oscillate back and forth within harbors and bays. We could speculate that the destruction of Atlantis was among others caused by a tsunami in this region. It was due to the tsunami waves traveling in shallow water, that was the ancient Java Sea, and penetrated inland on a very flat plain. The ancient Java Sea was forming a gulf, which could cause the wave became much higher and prolonged, and destructive. Plato also describes that the lands of Atlantis and “the Athens” were sunken ceaselessly afterwards. This is in line with the recent knowledge of post-glacial sea level rise. The sea level kept on rising until about 6,000 years ago, sinking the low lands as well as low plains in Sundaland. The ruin of the Atlantis city and its story were buried forever under the sea. Then, it was remembered by the Egyptians who migrated from there, and wrote them on their sacred registers. More articles at www.atlantisjavasea.com

Ravensthorpe, Western Australia From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Western Australia Population: 438 (2006 census) Postcode: 6346 Elevation: 232 m (761 ft) Location: 541 km (336 mi) ESE of Perth 50 km (31 mi) NNW of Hopetoun LGA: Shire of Ravensthorpe State District: Eyre Federal Division: O'Connor Mean Max Temp Mean Min Temp Annual Rainfall 22.7 °C 73 °F 10.4 °C 51 °F 425.3 mm 16.7 in Ravensthorpe is a town 541 km south east of Perth, 40 km inland from the south coast of Western Australia.  Overview In 1848, the area was surveyed by Surveyor General John Septimus Roe who named many of the geographical features nearby, including the nearby Ravensthorpe Range that the town is named after. The area was first settled by the Dunn brothers during the 1868. The Dunn brothers brought sheep farming to the area in 1871 when George and John Dunn drove a herd from Albany to the area they had established earlier. They were awarded a land grant in 1873 of 4049 ha. Another of the Dunn brothers, James Dunn discovered gold at Annabel creek and was awarded a claim by the government. More profitable discoveries followed in 1900 that resulted in a boom. The population climbed to over 1000 and by 1901 the government gazetted the town of Ravensthorpe. The government completed construction of a copper and gold smelter about 2km south east of the town in 1906, used to cast copper and gold ingots. At its peak of production the smelter employed over 120 men, the now disused smelter is still there and is surrounded by massive piles of tailings waste. The area continued to prosper and the population grew accordingly, by 1909 the population was over 3000. The prosperity was short-lived; World War I took its toll on the town and by 1918 the local copper smelter had closed and many of the copper and gold mines had closed. There was also one of the Western Australian Government Railways isolated branch lines between Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe. After the war Ravensthorpe survived servicing the farming in the district. Agriculture in the area began to grow following the great depression and pastoral land releases occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. BHP Billiton commenced a feasibility study in 2002 into opening a nickel and cobalt mine and processing plant 35 km East of the town The project was approved in 2004 and construction commenced shortly afterward. The plant known as the Ravensthorpe Nickel Project was commissioned in late 2007 with first production occurring in October and the first 5000 tonnes being produced by December 2007. The plant was officially opened in 2008. In January 2009, BHP Billiton announced that it was suspending production at the Ravensthorpe nickel mine indefinitely, due the reduction in world nickel prices caused by the global economic crisis. The decision cut 1,800 jobs and is expected to have a major impact on the local economy.

Some facts about Australia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDagSNXrEFs In land area, Australia is estimated to be 7,692,024 square Kilometers and the sixth largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States of America and Brazil. It has, however, a relatively small population. Australia is the only nation to govern an entire continent and its outlying islands. The mainland is the largest island and the smallest, flattest continent on Earth. It lies between 10° and 39° South latitude. The highest point on the mainland, Mount Kosciuszko, is only 2,228 metres. Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth. Its interior has one of the lowest rainfalls in the world and about three-quarters of the land is arid or semi-arid. Its fertile areas are well-watered, however, and these are used very effectively to help feed the world. Sheep and cattle graze in dry country, but care must be taken with the soil. Some grazing land became desert when the long cycles that influence rainfall in Australia turned to drought. The Australian federation consists of six States and two Territories. Most inland borders follow lines of longitude and latitude. The largest State, Western Australia, is about the same size as Western Europe. Economy Australia has a developed modern market economy and has had one of the most outstanding economies of the world in recent years with high-growth, low-inflation and low interest rates. Over the past decade, inflation has typically been 2–3% and the base interest rate 5–6%. There is an efficient government sector, a flexible labour market and a very competitive business sector. Since 1992 Australia has averaged greater than 3 per cent economic growth and recorded over 17 consecutive years. This economic stability places Australia in the top echelon of developed countries in terms of sustained rates of growth. The Australian economy is dominated by its service sector, representing 68% of Australian GDP. The agricultural and mining sectors account for 57% of the nation’s exports. With its abundant physical resources, Australia has enjoyed a high standard of living since the nineteenth century. Australia is a major exporter of agricultural products, particularly wheat and wool, minerals such as iron-ore and gold, and energy in the forms of liquified natural gas and coal. It has made a comparatively large investment in social infrastructure, including education, training, health and transport. According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, Australian per capita GDP growth is higher than that of New Zealand, US, Canada and The Netherlands. The past performance of the Australian economy has been heavily influenced by US, Japanese and Chinese economic growth. Immigration Australia’s culturally diverse society includes its Indigenous peoples who arrived more than 50,000 years ago, and settlers from countries all around the world. Immigration is an important feature of Australian society. Since 1945, over six million people from 200 countries have come to Australia as new settlers. Migrants have made a major contribution to shaping modern Australia. People born overseas make up almost one quarter of the total population. The federal government sets immigration intake numbers on a yearly basis. Australia’s immigration policies are non-discriminatory and all applicants to migrate must meet the same selection criteria. In recent years the mandatory detention of unauthorised arrivals with the intention of applying for refugee status (asylum seekers) by boat has generated great levels of controversy. Mandatory detention laws were introduced in Australia by the Keating Labor government, with bipartisan support, in 1992. The legislation was proposed as a result of an influx of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cambodian refugees over the previous few years.

The blue bubbles night shot is Kovar (magnetic) legs being eliminated with Hydrochloric (HCl), beaker illuminated with LED flashlight. Time lapse is adding 2ml of Nitric Acid to simmering HCl. Made mistake in allowing too much non-value ceramics w/ tungsten conductors in the Aqua Regia (AR) and saw clouds of white trash at the first instant the AR cooled or was diluted, the syrup shot shows 'texture' and artificial yellow color from it. Took many filtering, evaporations and dilutions to chase it all from solution - the used filter stash is a lot richer and yields were reduced. I preheated the Auric Chloride & dropped in simmering 6pH Oxalic, allow to simmer undisturbed until the gold conglomerates on its own. Gold received three boiling water washes prior to drying & weighing.

Went for a solo Sunday explore on the KLR 650 around Jarahdale. there are some interesting old rail ways and a few dams in the area, as well as just lots of trails. There is a bit of commentary while riding and exploring. I also use the drone, and explain how I use my sat phone when on the road. This is an ideas I got from Nigel Denis, a fellow ADV rider.

WIKIPEDIA Esperance is a town in Western Australia, located on the south coast around half-way between Albany and the South Australian border; 7 hours drive and 1 hour flight from the capital, Perth. Its population at the 2006 census was 14,450 and its major industries are tourism, agriculture, and fishing.  History Esperance location in Western AustraliaEuropean history dates back to 1627 when the Dutch vessel Gulden Zeepaert, skippered by François Thijssen, passed through the blue waters off the Esperance coast. French explorers are credited with making the first landfall near the present day town, naming it and other local landmarks whilst sheltering from a storm in this area in 1792. The town itself was named after the French ship, the L'Espérance, commanded by Bruni d'Entrecasteaux. Esperance, roughly translated, is French for 'hope'. In 1802, British navigator Matthew Flinders sailed the Bay of Isles, discovering and naming places such as Lucky Bay and Thistle Cove. Whalers, sealers and pirates followed, as did pastoralists and miners, keen to exploit the free land and cash in on the gold boom in the gold fields to the north. The area of the Esperance townsite was first settled by the Dempsters, a pioneer family of Scottish descent, in the 1870s. A telegraph station was opened in 1876, although the formal gazettal of the townsite did not occur until 1893. In 1979, pieces of the space station Skylab crashed onto Esperance after the craft broke up over the Indian Ocean. The municipality fined the United States $400 for littering. The fine was never paid. Skylab's demise was an international media event, with merchandising, wagering on time and place of re-entry and nightly news reports. The San Francisco Examiner offered a $10,000 prize for the first piece of Skylab to be delivered to their offices. 17-year-old Stan Thornton scooped a few pieces of Skylab off the roof of his home in Esperance, Western Australia and caught the first flight to San Francisco, where he collected his prize.  In January 2007, Esperance experienced a torrential storm with wind gusts of up to 110km/h and brought 155mm of rainfall within 24 hours, causing significant flooding. More than 100 homes were damaged, several boats were destroyed, trees were felled and 35m of bridge on the South Coast Highway, the main road linking Esperance to Perth, was washed away. The Western Australian Government declared the area a "natural disaster zone". Over 25,000 sheep were killed in the storm.  Facilities There are five primary schools in the region, Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School, Castletown Primary School, Esperance Primary School, Nulsen Primary School and Seventh Day Adventist Primary School. There are also two secondary schools: Esperance Senior High School and Esperance Anglican College which opened at the start of 2008. Curtin TAFE also has a campus in the town.  Tourism Near the town itself are numerous beaches, offering surfing, scuba diving, and swimming. Also nearby are a number of salt lakes, including the Pink Lake, which gains its rosy hue from red algae living within its waters. Esperance is most noted for its coastline and has been voted Australia's best beaches, Australia's whitest sand and Western Australia's most popular beach. Esperance is also home to the Cyclops wave, extremely heavy with massive amounts of water unloading on shallow reef. Cyclops is featured in the surfing films Billabong Odyssey, and the Bra Boys documentary. There are five major national parks near the town. A major nearby tourist attraction, 20 minutes away from the town centre, is the Cape Le Grand National Park, which offers a picturesque coast of largely granite terrain and sheltered white sand beaches. The park is a popular spot for recreational fishing, as well as four wheel drive enthusiasts and hikers. Esperance also has a number of wind turbines supplying electricity to the town which is an amassing site. Late 2007 a television advertisement promoting one of the newer Ferrari cars was filmed on Esperance's foreshore, to be shown overseas.

The Alaska Air National Guard says a man who needed rescuing from his submerged truck in Cache Creek may have been trying to cross the creek. "There's a mining road 100 to 200 yards upstream that crosses the creek, but water levels have been higher lately due to the amount of rainfall," said Lt. Col. Keenan Zerkel, the Pave Hawk helicopter pilot who helped in the rescue. Word of the trapped man on Cache Creek, near Mile 40 Petersville Road, first reached Alaska State Troopers just before 7:15 p.m. Thursday, according to an online dispatch. The man crawled out of the cab of his truck and on top of the vehicle while it was moving downstream, the Air Guard reported Monday. A bystander who was with him left the scene for cell service to call for help. Troopers called the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center, which coordinated a response. The Air Guard says it launched an HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter with two pararescuemen onboard and an MC-130P Combat Shadow aircraft, which provided aerial refueling. Rescuing the stranded man required a "high-hover technique" and a 180-foot hoist — 4 1/2 times higher than a typical mission involving a hoist, according to the Air Guard. Officials said they didn't want to get too close to the man and blow him off the truck. The Air Guard noted that high waters contributed to a rafting accident at Lake Creek earlier in August and reminded people to exercise caution on waterways, as high waters resulted from an abundance of rain in certain parts of the state this summer. ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ اضغط هنا للمزيد من المتابعة على صفحاتنا: 👈 الصفحة الرئيسية لقناة ASTV https://www.youtube.com/c/AmirSalehTV 👈 صفحة أمير صالح لخدمات الكمبيوتر https://www.facebook.com/AmirSalehForComputerServices 👈 صفحة اضحك للصبح https://www.facebook.com/ed7aklessob7 👈 صفحة قراءة من كتاب https://www.facebook.com/qeraa.men.ketab 👈 صفحة Back to Islam https://www.facebook.com/baktoislam 👈 صفحة فلتكن عبدا ربانيا https://www.facebook.com/conrabbany 👈 صفحة الفيس بوك الشخصية https://www.facebook.com/PC.doctor.AmirSaleh Hat dieser Mann wirklich aus dem LKW umlagert von den Fluten gerettet? ¿Ese hombre realmente rescatado de la camioneta asediado por las inundaciones?

Australia Firestorm 1 of 4 - BBC My Country Documentary, recorded 03.04.2010 Bushfires are an expected hazard for the people who live in the Australian state of Victoria, but the scale of the weekends disaster has left everyone shocked. Scientists understand the processes which trigger fires all too well and recent conditions have been shown to be frighteningly perfect. It has been extremely warm with temperatures over 40C. Strong winds have also been blowing from the interior of the continent. In south-east Australia, bad fire days are associated with the presence of a blocking high pressure system in the Tasman Sea. This brings hot, dry strong wind from the centre of the continent to the south-east, said Andrew Sullivan, a fire researcher with Australias lead scientific agency, CSIRO. The high temperatures and dry air experienced throughout Victoria on Saturday resulted in very low fuel moisture content. Combined with the extended rainfall deficit for much of the state, this resulted in tinder-dry fuel that was very easily ignited and very difficult to extinguish. Fire weather The region has been in the grip of the Big Dry - the worst drought in a century. Last week, a group of Australian researchers produced a report in which they said a dominant factor behind this extended dry period was a phenomenon known as the Indian Ocean Dipole. This is said to relate to a flip-flop pattern of ocean temperatures found to the west and north of the Australian continent. In the negative phase, cool waters rule off the west of the continent and warm waters dominate in the Timor Sea to the north. This produces winds that pick up moisture from the ocean and sweep it down towards southern Australia to deliver cool, wet conditions. In the positive phase, the pattern of ocean temperatures is reversed. The winds are weaker, they cannot pick up so much moisture, and south-eastern Australia experiences drier conditions. The consequences of attempting to work against Nature, by trying to prevent any fires at all, can be catastrophic The problem, the team from the University of New South Wales said, was that the dipole seemed to be stuck in its positive phase. The researchers studied long data sets to show correlations not just between current events but also the major droughts at the beginning of the 20th Century and during the WWII. The dipole idea is not universally accepted among climatologists. Many see the El Nino phenomenon centred on the Pacific as being the most important signal. One of the inevitable questions is how climate change might affect such natural cycles. Scientists will investigate the links further and use powerful computer models to try to tease out the probabilities. Current climate projections point to an increase in fire-weather risk from warmer and drier conditions. Two simulations used by Australias lead scientific agency, CSIRO, and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology point to the number of days with very high and extreme fire danger ratings increasing by some 4-25% by 2020, and 15-70% by 2050. The agencies Climate Change in Australia report cites the example of Canberra which may be looking at an annual average of 26-29 very high or extreme fire danger days by 2020 and 28-38 days by 2050.

14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017 14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017 14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017 It wasn't a good year for 2015 as far as natural disasters go with terrible floods in Texas and Oklahoma and the Australian wildfires. Subscribe to Talltanic 7. The Wildfires in the Western U.S. It was last summer when the drought in California combined with the dry weather to create massive fires that blazed through the northern area of the state all the way to Montana. It was reported that more than 70 vast fires in total had scorched the land and claimed the lives of three firefighters in central Washington state while they were battling a fire after their car had crashed. 9,000 homes were also left without power in the city of Chelan, Washington when utility poles were burned down and it was then that Jerry Brown, the governor of California, had issued a state of emergency in certain counties, forcing thousands of people to evacuate. 6. The Earthquake in Chile On the day of Sept. 16, an 8.3 magnitude earthquake struck and killed 11 people in central Chile and then triggered tsunami warnings as far off as California and Hawaii. It was reported that as many as one million people evacuated their homes and waves that were up to 4.5 meters high began to slam into Chile's port city of Coquimbo. Many people were relieved that this event was not as horrific as the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that killed around 500 people in Chile back in 2010. 5.Cyclone Pam Winds that reached up to 270 kilometers an hour ripped through the 65-island South Pacific archipelago, that is home to about 267,000 people. One of the more heavily damaged places was the capital, Port Vila, where 47,000 people live. The wreckage proved to be even worse on the outer island of Tanna. It’s here that the Australian military guessed about 80 percent of the structures and buildings had been flattened, along with the airport and the local hospital. The island’s location made it difficult for rescuers to get through because it was so remote and around 24 people throughout Vanuatu died. 4. Burma landslide During the middle of the night on Nov. 21, a landslide in Burma, also known as Myanmar, had managed to kill as many as 113 people when a mountain of dirt that was 60-metres high collapsed. The disaster happened in one of the mining communities in the northern part of the country that is rich with jade. Authorities claimed that at first they believe that mostly men who were digging through the mining scraps looking for jade were killed, but later stated that 70 huts that housed sleeping miners were buried in the late hours. 3. Super Typhoon Soudelor Strikes Better known as Typhoon Hanna, this tropical storm happened to be the second most intense tropical storm to form in the Northern Hemisphere since Typhoon Vongfong. Yes, that was its actual name. Soudelor managed to pave its way through the Pacific Ocean back in August, and the typhoon became the strongest storm of the year when the Japanese Meteorological Agency reported it reached a record low pressure of 900 millibars.Winds up to 100 mph blasted the island of Saipan and brought 50 inches of rain to Taiwan, along with deadly landslides. As many as 34 people were killed in Taiwan and China combined and another 100 people were presumed as missing. 2. The Malawi And Mozambique Floods The rainfall that occurred in the month of J anuary was above-normal which is what led to the devastating floods that rushed through Malawi and Mozambique.This then forced hundreds and hundreds of people to evacuate from their homes and killed nearly 200 people as reported by the World Vision team, who helped provide the victims with much need amenities. Families lost not just their homes, but their crops and livestock as well as bridges, roads, and water systems that had been destroyed or partially damaged. 1. The Nepal Earthquake On the day of April 25, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck the city of Nepal. The sheer force of this natural disaster was enough to damage around 900,000 buildings, leaving around 1 million children out of school, and set off avalanches in the Mt. Everest that killed at least 19 people. More than 8,800 individuals lost their lives that day and the disaster was labeled as the deadliest in Nepal’s history Subscribe & More Videos: https://goo.gl/ztkgdN Thank for watching, Please Like Share And SUBSCRIBE!!! #terrible, #mostbrutalnaturaldisasters

Mother Load Gold Nuggets - Documentary Films Nuggets are gold fragments weathered out of an original lode. They often show signs of abrasive polishing by stream action, and sometimes still contain inclusions of quartz or other lode matrix material. A 2007 study on Australian nuggets ruled out speculative theories of supergene formation via in-situ precipitation, cold welding of smaller particles, or bacterial concentration, since crystal structures of all of the nuggets examined proved they were originally formed at high temperature deep underground (i.e., they were of hypogene origin). Other precious metals such as platinum form nuggets in the same way. A later study of native gold from Arizona, US, based on lead isotopes indicates that a significant part of the mass in alluvial gold nuggets in this area formed within the placer environment.

The mallee area approximately 100 km north of the town began grain production in the 1920s, and by 1935 the construction of a second jetty, tankers jetty, was completed. Agriculture was introduced to the Esperance sand plain by an American syndicate, in partnership with the state government, in the 1960s following the discovery that adding superphosphate fertilisers containing trace elements to the poor soils made them suitable for cropping and pastoral activity. Despite early difficulties, the project eventually became a success and large areas of land were cleared during this time. In 1979, pieces of the space station Skylab crashed onto Esperance after the craft broke up over the Indian Ocean. The municipality fined the United States $400 for littering. The fine was paid in April 2009, when radio show host Scott Barley of Highway Radio raised the funds from his morning show listeners, and paid the fine on behalf of NASA. Skylab's demise was an international media event, with merchandising, wagering on time and place of re-entry, and nightly news reports. The San Francisco Examiner offered a $10,000 prize for the first piece of Skylab to be delivered to their offices. 17-year-old Stan Thornton scooped a few pieces of Skylab off the roof of his home in Esperance, caught the first flight to San Francisco, and collected the prize. In January 2007, the national media claimed that Esperance experienced "the perfect storm" with wind gusts of up to 110 km/h (68 mph) which brought 155 mm (6 in) of rainfall within 24 hours, causing significant flooding. More than 100 homes were damaged, several boats were destroyed, trees were felled, 35 m of bridge on the South Coast Highway, (the main road linking Esperance to Perth), was washed away, and power was cut from thousands of homes. The Western Australian Government declared the area a "natural disaster zone". Over 25,000 sheep were killed in the storm. http://www.brendanconfalonierereview.com/

Part 2 of a two part public lecture, presented by Dr Isaac Santos and Dr Damien Maher from the Southern Cross University's Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research, in the School of Environment, Science and Engineering, Whitebrook Theatre, SCU, Wed 14 Nov 2012. The scientists and their research students have spent time in Queensland collecting preliminary data from that state's large CSG fields to compare it with data from NSW. "We have performed snapshot surveys of methane concentrations in the atmosphere and creeks near Tara in Southern Queensland and in the Richmond River catchment in Northern NSW," said Dr Maher. "The concentrations of methane were much higher in the atmosphere and creek waters around Tara than in Northern NSW. "Mining in the Tara region is at full speed, while in Northern NSW we are still at the exploration stage. Contrasting the two regions provides insight into how to best manage CSG in the Northern Rivers area." Dr Santos said the lecture would report on original scientific results to be published in peer reviewed scientific journals in the coming months. "The current discussions on CSG are often based on anecdotal evidence, old observations not designed to assess CSG or data obtained overseas. "We believe universities are independent institutions that should provide hard data to inform this discussion. The lack of site-specific baseline data is staggering," said Dr Santos. A 2012 Australian Research Council grant to Dr Santos and his colleagues in the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research, Professor Bradley Eyre, Dr Symon Dworjanyn, Dr Joanne Oakes and Dr Dirk Erler, enabled Southern Cross University to purchase unique scientific instrumentation not available anywhere else in Australia. "We are now able to measure the concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane at one second intervals with incredible precision while driving a car or a boat. The instrumentation also measures the stable isotopes of carbon which gives us insight into the source of methane," said Dr Santos. He said the lecture would also address some of the major questions emerging from the CSG debate. "How will our creeks and groundwater be impacted by CSG exploration? How can we monitor the fate of CSG co-produced waters? How to assess the overall impact of CSG exploration on greenhouse gas budgets?" The lecture is free and open to the community. Complex scientific concepts will be conveyed in a simple and understandable manner. Dr Santos and Dr Maher will speak for 30 minutes each and take questions after the lecture. Date: Wednesday, November 14 Time: 5.30pm -- 7.30pm Venue: Whitebrook Theatre, Southern Cross University, Military Road, East Lismore BIOS Dr Isaac Santos is a world leader in groundwater research and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry at SCU. Dr Santos has 50 scientific peer reviewed publications, many of which focus on the hydrology and chemistry of the Richmond River. In 2011 Santos was given an award from the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation, the largest global federation of coastal scientists for his research on groundwater. Dr Damien Maher is an expert in carbon dioxide cycling in the environment. He has published the first scientific papers estimating carbon dioxide fluxes in Australian estuaries. Dr Maher has recently developed a rapid approach to perform high precision methane measurements in air and water. The research performed by Dr Santos and Dr Maher builds on Southern Cross University's strengths in the field of geochemistry. In 2010, SCU was given the highest rank of 5 in the Excellence in Research Australia assessment for research "well above world standards". SCU's ERA rank in the field of geochemistry is matched by only other two universities in Australia, both of which located in metropolitan areas. Photo: Dr Isaac Santos taking groundwater samples.

Dr Peter Stone of CSIRO on Unlocking the potential of Northern Australia at 2016 IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition, Brisbane, Australia. Dr. Peter Stone (http://people.csiro.au/S/P/Peter-Stone) is a Research Program Director at CSIRO, and leads CSIRO’s work on the development of Northern Australia. His presentation describes the work that CSIRO is currently undertaking to support increased development, particularly in the area of irrigated agriculture, in Northern Australia. Northern Australia covers an extensive land area, equivalent to approximately five times the size of France. 1.3 million people live in this area, and the GDP per capita is the highest in the world, thanks to the thriving mining and cattle industries. In Northern Australia, CSIRO has identified 16 million hectares of suitable irrigable soil, and there is enough water (after evaporation, which accounts for 90% of water loss following rainfall) to irrigate 1.5 million hectares. CSIRO has identified both where and how to irrigate following the identification of key drivers and impediments. CSIRO is now working to address the following key issues in order to develop a plan to fully realise the benefits for Northern Australia: land tenure, water resource plans, farm systems, profitability, and supply chains. CSIRO’s approach looks at the interlocking biophysical, regulatory, social, and financial considerations in order to reduce risks and improve opportunities for irrigated agriculture throughout Northern Australia.
