first_imgSubash Singh was the difference in the end between NEROCA FC and Shillong Lajong as the team from Manipur edged a 1-0 in an I-League match at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Shillong on Saturday.The 27-year-old Subash scored in the 83rd minute, as NEROCA FC in their maiden appearance continued their good run in the I-League. This was their third win this season and have 10 points after five games played.The first half of the game was filled with a lot of action.Lajong, as well as NEROCA FC, played some offensive football in their pursuit of the opening goal. Despite the fact that this is not their home turf, Neroca played with utmost confidence and were as comfortable in their offence as was Lajong.A great cross from Pritam Ningthoujam and cool header from Subash Singam earn us three points today at the northeast derby !!SHILLONG LAJONG FC 0 – 1 NEROCA FC#heroileague #indianfootball #nerocafc #prideofmanipur #orangebrigade #backtheorange #india #manipur #lajvsnfc pic.twitter.com/Qf9dnvRLIe- Neroca FC (@NerocaFC) December 23, 2017Lajong, on the other hand, seemed really desperate to score a goal and secure their position in the game. There was a brilliant attempt taken by Aimen Saleh Abdullah AL-Hagri of Lajong but it could not draw any result for the Reds.Towards the middle of the first half, Lajong looked in a bit of trouble when NEROCA started dominating the game for a short while but then the strong Lajong defence held them at bay.There were no substitutions in the first half for any of the two teams but there was a yellow card shown to Juho Ho (21) of Lajong in the 40th minute. Both the teams headed towards the dressing room without any difference between them.advertisementAfter the resumption, Nedo Turkovic made his debut for the Manipuri outfit, having replaced Israilov Akhlidin. Ex- Mariner Singam Subhash Singh of NEROCA FC came very close to breaching the Lajong defence but eventually, it was averted by the gritty Lajong defence.Meanwhile, Gift Raikhan had to introduce Thokchom Naoba Singh in the 79th minute to replace Govind Singh Moirangthem who was hurt badly.Four Minutes later, Subash Singh of Neroca headed a brilliant cross from Pritam Singh home to leave Lajong Goalie stranded. The poacher was left completely unmarked by the Lajong defenders and the Neroca FC striker encashed on that to muster all three points.last_img

Ozone measurements by zenith-sky spectrometers: An evaluation of errors in air-mass factors calculated by radiative transfer models

first_imgCalculations of air-mass factors (AMFs) for ground-based zenith-sky UV-visible spectrometers are presented and discussed. Causes and size of errors in AMFs of ozone in the visible are evaluated. Errors can be caused by approximations in the calculation (intensity-weight approximation, ignoring the finite field of view of the instrument); by approximation in the scheme of the calculation (single scattering, ignoring refraction); or by variable geophysical parameters (vertical profile of constituents). These relative errors in AMF cause identical relative errors in vertical columns of ozone deduced from measurements by zenith-sky spectrometers. The mean of the relative errors of ozone AMFs due to using one set of AMFs for all seasons and locations is ±2.4% when averaged over the commonly used range of solar zenith angles.last_img

Upper temperature limits of tropical marine ectotherms: global warming implications

first_imgAnimal physiology, ecology and evolution are affected by temperature and it is expected that community structure will be strongly influenced by global warming. This is particularly relevant in the tropics, where organisms are already living close to their upper temperature limits and hence are highly vulnerable to rising temperature. Here we present data on upper temperature limits of 34 tropical marine ectotherm species from seven phyla living in intertidal and subtidal habitats. Short term thermal tolerances and vertical distributions were correlated, i.e., upper shore animals have higher thermal tolerance than lower shore and subtidal animals; however, animals, despite their respective tidal height, were susceptible to the same temperature in the long term. When temperatures were raised by 1°C hour−1, the upper lethal temperature range of intertidal ectotherms was 41–52°C, but this range was narrower and reduced to 37–41°C in subtidal animals. The rate of temperature change, however, affected intertidal and subtidal animals differently. In chronic heating experiments when temperature was raised weekly or monthly instead of every hour, upper temperature limits of subtidal species decreased from 40°C to 35.4°C, while the decrease was more than 10°C in high shore organisms. Hence in the long term, activity and survival of tropical marine organisms could be compromised just 2–3°C above present seawater temperatures. Differences between animals from environments that experience different levels of temperature variability suggest that the physiological mechanisms underlying thermal sensitivity may vary at different rates of warming.last_img

Quantarctica, an integrated mapping environment for Antarctica, the Southern Ocean, and sub-Antarctic islands

first_imgQuantarctica (https://www.npolar.no/quantarctica) is a geospatial data package, analysis environment, and visualization platform for the Antarctic Continent, Southern Ocean (>40oS), and sub-Antarctic islands. Quantarctica works with the free, cross-platform Geographical Information System (GIS) software QGIS and can run without an Internet connection, making it a viable tool for fieldwork in remote areas. The data package includes basemaps, satellite imagery, terrain models, and scientific data in nine disciplines, including physical and biological sciences, environmental management, and social science. To provide a clear and responsive user experience, cartography and rendering settings are carefully prepared using colour sets that work well for typical data combinations and with consideration of users with common colour vision deficiencies. Metadata included in each dataset provides brief abstracts for non-specialists and references to the original data sources. Thus, Quantarctica provides an integrated environment to view and analyse multiple Antarctic datasets together conveniently and with a low entry barrier.last_img
