This, to us, is as a matter of absolute philosophic principle to ensure our resolute and complete independence. The ways, in which, we invite support from the readers, members of the public and all other individuals and agencies and businesses of any kind, are: a: Voluntary Subscription Payments: b: Voluntary Contributions: c: The Minimal and Symbolic Membership Fees to Our Regineumanics Family: d: Buying a Copy of The Long Walk to Humanics: e: Contributing to Our Events and f: Advertisement in The Humanion. We say it here and invite you for your support and we do not keep asking you on every page your visit to read the materials. You make a conscious, wilful and philosophic choice to Support The Humanion and The Foundation. If, you do: thank you: If, you do not, thank you, too, for reading The Humanion. The world has, apparently, accepted that Capitalism is the High Pinnacle of All Systems and, some still dream that Marxism will rescue humanity from this Killing Mechanism Capitalism, we refuse to subscribe to that and Humanics is the Post-Marxist and Post-Capitalistic World View of What Humanity can be and what it can do and how infinitely better a human condition can be created in a Humanical Society, by eradicating ownership and money and by establishing belongingship in human enterprise, setting all humans at liberty and equality under the rule of law in natural justice with a direct form of democracy, humanics calls it, Humanicsovics, in which, each human soul is her:his own High Representative. In this, Humanics is the Minority Vision and, in this, we do not and can not expect millions and billions of people supporting our vision today but We Whole-Heartedly Believe That ONE DAY This Humanity Shall BE ALL HUMANICAL: By When: We Know Not But This: That Being a Monstrous Killing Mechanism Capitalism IS Unsustainable: But the World Shall Change One Day and Every Change Begins with an Idea, with a Vision: We invite you to Envision the Vision of Humanics and Support The Humanion and The Foundation to Keep Taking Forward the Vision of Humanics for an Infinitely Better Humanity in an Infinitely Better Human Condition for All Humanity Across Mother Earth. Thank You.

The Face of The Antarctic Page at The Humanion is Dr Beth Healey. Having spent, almost, a year working in the bewildering Antarctic isolation, plentiful solitude and nature, endless flows of stars, auroras, wide expanse of heavens and the ever expanding darkness, mostly, and in the cold, Beth will leave Concordia soon by taking the slow route over land, she will be part of a 10-day caravan on skies that ferries heavy supplies across the Antarctic plateau. The Humanion wishes the new as well as the old crew the best. And to Beth Healey: a safe journey home. November 24: 2015

Scientists Discover Networks of Lakes and Streams on Antarctica’s Ice Sheets

|| April 22: 2017: University of Sheffield News || ά. Vast lakes and streams are widespread on the surface of Antarctica’s ice sheets according to new research published in Nature by an international team of scientists. The study, which included geographers from the University of Sheffield, has found that huge lakes have been forming on the surface of Antarctica since, at least, the 1940s and extensive networks of streams have been draining water onto vulnerable ice shelves, that are prone to collapse.

Scientists previously believed that the drainage of surface water, known as meltwater, was a rarity in Antarctica. However, the international team of researchers used aerial photography and satellite imagery to find that meltwater moves vast distances across the surface of the ice sheets onto ice shelves. Ice shelves, which are floating parts of ice sheets, are prone to collapse when water flows into their cracks and crevasses. The research team believes that in a warming climate, more water is likely to be produced on the surface of Antarctica, which could accelerate the ice sheets’ contribution to sea level rise.

Current predictions of sea-level rise do not include these processes. Dr Jeremy Ely, a member of the research team from the University of Sheffield’s Department of Geography, said, “If melted completely, Antarctica’s ice sheets contain enough water to raise global sea levels by around 58 metres, so it’s important that we understand how and where meltwater forms, moves, drains and the impact it can have on ice shelves, which can be prone to collapse.

Our study has found that extensive networks of lakes and streams have persisted in Antarctica for decades, which move surface water across its ice sheets onto ice shelves. One network of streams feeds a lake, which is situated at 85 degrees south, making it the most southern lake in the world.

Despite extensive studies in Greenland and observations of individual meltwater drainage systems in Antarctica, we previously had little understanding of how water moves across the surface of Antarctica’s ice sheets.”

The study, Widespread movement of meltwater onto and across the Antarctic ice shelves, is published in Nature on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

The research, also,  gives geography students at Sheffield access to the latest innovations in climate science. ω.

Local Weather Impacts on the Melting of One of the Antarctica’s Fastest-Retreating Glaciers

|| February 19: 2017: University of East Anglia News || ά. Local weather plays an important part in the retreat of the ice shelves in West Antarctica, according to new research published in the journal Nature Communications. The study led by scientists at the University of East Anglia:UEA of the Pine Island Glacier:PIG used a unique five-year record to study how the interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere, as well as changing currents, control how heat is transported to, and beneath, the Pine Island Ice Shelf.

Pine Island Glacier is one of the fastest melting glaciers in Antarctica with some studies suggesting that its eventual collapse is almost inevitable. Previous research suggested more warm water was circulating under the ice shelf and melting it more rapidly, leading to an increasing contribution to sea level rise. However relatively little was known about what drives changes in ocean conditions in this remote part of Antarctica due to its inaccessibility. Some studies suggested that the ocean conditions close to Pine Island Glacier are influenced most strongly by winds at the edge of the continental shelf, some 400 km to the north, which in turn respond to changes in tropical ocean temperatures.

The study looked at the impact of shelf-edge winds and found this to be less direct than previously thought, and that local atmospheric conditions and ocean circulation are the main drivers of ocean temperature changes in the critical 350-700m depth range, over the period of observation.

Dr Ben Webber, oceanographer at UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences said, “The ice shelves of the Amundsen Sea – an area of the Southern Ocean – protect much of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet from collapse. These ice shelves are rapidly losing mass and understanding the mechanisms which control ocean conditions and drive melting of these glaciers is hugely important.

We found a strong annual cycle in the exchange of heat between the ocean and the atmosphere, which drives changes in ocean temperature. While these changes are less evident in deeper waters, through convection and mixing the heat can penetrate deeply enough to have a major impact on melting and influence the temperature of the water entering the cavity under the glacier.

There was a colder weather period from 2012-13, however, a separate study has shown that this only led to a partial slowdown of the glacier’s retreat, and many glaciers in the region have been retreating for decades and aren’t slowing down.”

Changes in the direction of the ocean currents also cause changes in temperature close to Pine Island Glacier. The colder period was associated with a reversal in the currents that transport heat into and around the bay.

Co-author Dr Povl Abrahamsen, Oceanographer at British Antarctic Survey, said, “Most of the ocean data around Antarctica are snapshots of conditions – and many areas are only visited once every one or two years, if that. A continuous five-year time series near Pine Island Glacier, one of the fastest-melting glaciers in Antarctica, lets us see what is happening between these snapshots, giving us insights into the processes driving the melting of Pine Island Glacier.”

Dr Webber continued, “It is likely that other ice shelves around Antarctica that are melting due to warm ocean conditions will also be strongly influenced by local atmospheric conditions. This would underline the importance of atmospheric and ocean monitoring close to the Antarctic coasts to give early warning of future changes in ice shelf melting and glacial retreat.”

The research was carried as part of the Natural Environment Research Council:NERC-funded iSTAR Programme and was in collaboration with US and Korean collaborators using data from ship-based and atmospheric observations including ship-deployed oceanographic moorings.
