Using expressions for ice-shelf creep derived by Weertman (1957) and Thomas (1973[b]) a general method is developed for calculating equilibrium thickness profiles, velocities, and strain-rates for any ice shelf. This is done first for an unconfined glacier tongue and the result agrees well with data for Erebus Glacier tongue (Holdsworth, 1974). Anomalies occur within the first 3 km after the hinge zone and these are too great to be the result of local bottom freezing; they are probably due to disturbance of the velocity field. Secondly, profiles are calculated for bay ice shelves. Thickness gradients are largely independent of melt-rate or flow parameters but are inversely proportional to the width of the bay. Data from Antarctic ice shelves agree with this result both qualitatively and quantitatively. The theory is readily extended to ice shelves in diverging and converging bays. An ice shelf in a diverging bay can only remain intact if it is thick enough and slow enough to creep sufficiently rapidly in the transverse direction. If it cannot, it will develop major rifts or will come adrift from the bay walls. It is then likely to break up. The presence of ice rises or areas of grounding towards the seaward margin can radically alter the size of the ice shelf which can form. The theory could be used as a starting point to study non-equilibrium behaviour.

However following higher rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax and Land and Buildings Transaction Tax on additional properties in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, there are indications of a cooling in the market in April 2016.David Brown, CEO of Marsh & Parsons, likes the new report, “This new, combined house price index gives a more accurate picture than ever before given the inclusion of cash sales and new dwellings, along with average price calculations that are less liable to volatility.”Land Registry House price index HPI ONS July 1, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Greenko to build massive hybrid renewable project in India FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine India:Greenko Energies will set up India’s largest Integrated Renewable Energy Project (IREP) in Andhra Pradesh at an investment of INR 150 billion (US$2.2 billion). Recently approved by the Andhra Pradesh government, the project will comprise 1,000 MW of solar energy, 550 MW of wind energy and 1,200 MW of standalone pumped storage capacities. It is expected to provide employment to 15,000 people during construction and 3,000 people after construction.Recognised as a mega industrial project, the Greenko wind-solar hybrid project has been allotted around 4,766 acres of land. However, the company must complete the project within a period of four years, failing which the entire land will be handed back to the government of Andhra Pradesh.The power generated from this wind-solar hybrid, along with standalone pumped storage, will be connected to the power grid substation and delivered outside the State, with no obligation for [distribution companies] to purchase power. However, they will have the first right of refusal.The Government of Andhra Pradesh aims to achieve 18,000 MW of renewable energy capacity by the year 2021-22, comprising 10,000 MW of solar power and 8,000 MW of wind power, which is 10% of the national target. The share of renewable power in the state’s total power consumption has reached 18% during the year 2017-18. Further, the state government has announced the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Development Policy 2015-20 to encourage large-scale investments in the State.Greenko, backed by Singapore’s GIC and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, was recently in the news for acquiring the solar and wind portfolio of New Delhi-headquartered Orange Renewables. The acquisition added 1 GW to Greenko’s operational capacity, to raise its portfolio to 4.2 GW, just shy of the capacity held by ReNew Power Ventures, the country’s largest renewable energy company.More: Greenko’s 2.75 GW solar, wind, storage project approved in Andhra Pradesh

Aguero returned from his latest enforced absence in the Liverpool match, and City were then without the likes of Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year nominee Yaya Toure, David Silva and Jesus Navas in the Sunderland game due to injuries. But, speaking ahead of Monday’s home clash with West Brom, Pellegrini said: “We have had an important amount of injuries during the whole season. “I think it has not only been our team, though. “We play so many games with a lot of intensity and maybe all the teams that play in all the competitions have a lot of injuries. “But, of course, it is a problem.” Sunderland went into their match against City on Wednesday lying bottom of the table but almost secured all three points at the Etihad Stadium from a contest that ended 2-2. And with his team coming up against another side in the thick of the relegation battle on Monday in Albion, Pellegrini is certainly not viewing it as an easy assignment. “Of course it (Wednesday’s match) was a disappointment because we always want to win every game,” the 60-year-old Chilean said. With five matches left to play, City – beaten by Liverpool and then held to a draw by Sunderland in their last two fixtures – are in third place behind the Reds and Chelsea in the race to be crowned champions, albeit with games in hand over those two clubs. Pellegrini’s squad have been hit by some notable injuries during the season, with top-scorer Sergio Aguero more than once having to spend a considerable spell on the sidelines. “But I said before that game that playing against a relegation-threatened team is not easy. “Sunderland did very well to get a point. “Always playing against these teams at the end of the season is very difficult. “You see what happened with Crystal Palace against Everton (Palace won 3-2 at Goodison Park, also on Wednesday) and what happened with our team against Sunderland – they are very difficult teams because they play at 100 per cent for every ball. “I hope we can have the same attitude and the same intensity (as them).” On the fact that City will be playing after their title rivals have been in action over the Easter weekend, Pellegrini added: “I think we must have in our minds not what is happening with the other teams – just to try to win our games. “We must do this whether we are playing before or after they play.” City playmaker Silva’s ankle problem makes him a doubt for the West Brom match. Pellegrini has revealed winger Navas has also been struggling with an ankle issue, and Monday’s game will come too soon for midfielder Toure to return after his leg injury, which it was suggested earlier this week could keep him out for up to a fortnight. Defender Matija Nastasic, out of action since February because of a knee complaint, remains unavailable. Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is reluctant to use injuries as an excuse with regard to his side’s faltering Barclays Premier League title challenge. Press Association
