Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, South America. Early winter snow can be seen on this south tip of the Andes Mountains. These same mountains continue underwater to Antarctica. La Memoria de Nuestra Tierra combines a meticulously hand-painted landscape with historic photographs in a seamless blend imprinted on the holographic-like surface of a metallic coated substrate.

The mural for the Denver International Airport, entitled La Memoria de Nuestra Tierra is a breakthrough in digital murals, printed digitally on a…. Ecologia de las lombrices de tierra. De los organismos de suelo, las lombrices de tierra son las mas conocidas y a menudo son consideradas las mas importantes por su influencia en el funcionamiento de ecosistemas de suelo Hendriz y Bohlen, Tienen un efecto significativo en la estructura del suelo, el ciclo de nutrimentos y ls productividad de las cosechas.

En terminos de biomasa, generalmente See the Building America Web site. Tierra Concrete Homes. Predatory phytoseiid mites have been intensively studied and surveyed in the last decades because of their economic importance as biocontrol agents of agricultural pests. However, many regions of the world remain unexplored and the diversity of the family worldwide is still fragmentary. In this study Phytoseiidae were sampled from native vegetation in southern Argentina and Chile in the regions of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego Island.

Thirteen species were collected, five of which were previously described and eight, Chileseius australis n. Nutrient cycling in Nothofagus pumilio forests along an altitudinal gradient in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.

Nothofagus pumilio lenga forests form monocultures from sea level to timberline in Tierra de Fuego, Argentina. Past studies suggested that the life form change from erect forest to krummholz had advantages to forest function. Aboveground net primary productivity NPP and organic matter production per unit leaf area and growing season day were higher in krummholz Conversation with Lara about the Earth and Land.

Conversando com Lara sobre a Terra e a Terra. The present article is the analysis of a conversation between the author and Lara, a four-yearold- girl, enrolled in nursery school, while she makes a drawing of the Earth. It took place outside school environment and without any other person around to avoid interference during the interview. However, when asked to draw the World - term used by Butterworth et al. Her drawings led to the conclusion that such girl does not know yet the World in which she lives is the Earth, and probably because of that, within her age and consequent maturity, she accurately differentiates the concepts of land and Earth.

Pero, cuando se Le solicita dibujar el "Mundo" - palabra empleada en un trabajo de Butterworth et al. Due to its late incorporation into the national State, the social, economic and political setting of the Argentine province Tierra del Fuego differed from that of the rest of the national territory. In the construction of dependent otherness, objectifications and representations were imposed by state-related and non-state-related institutions, among other agencies.

In this context, the Salesian mission of La Candelaria and Ushuaia's Jail for recidivists stand out as spaces in which biopolitics was concretised. The native population and criminals in Tierra del Fuego were those to be subjugated. The thesis of the extinction of the Indian and the simultaneous exaltation of the criminal as the subject of progress identified the scientific and political mechanisms by which the exclusion of certain social groups Tierra del Fuego's indigenous population and the inclusion of others criminals were regulated.

Tingle, D. The isolated lake is unique because the geographic and geologic context provides information relating to the westerly wind patterns, interaction of multiple water sources hot springs, glacial meltwater, precipitation, groundwater , and tectonic dynamics along a major transform fault.

In March, , four students and three teachers from Boerne High School, south-central Texas joined scientists from the United States, Argentina and Switzerland engaged in a geophysical survey of this lake. Lago Fagnano potentially contains within its sediments an undisturbed record of the geotectonic and global climate variability of past 20, years.

The science team imaged the lake floor with a boat specially equipped to collect both high resolution data high frequency , imaging the upper meters of the sediment, and long range data low frequency , penetrating or more meters into the sediment. The group conducted field research of existing tectonic features at the eastern end of Tierra del Fuego, an activity directly tied to the research objectives of the science team.

They also collected water and soil samples to assess chemical and isotopic trends in the Lago Fagnano region. The research performed can help to characterize the modern geochemical setting of the lake. Water and soil data are incorporated into a database to facilitate comparisons to North American samples collected and analyzed during the Boerne High School summer field courses.

The objectives of this engineering checkout run were to evaluate the integration of the telescope and ZWO ASI MM high speed CMOS camera, and to establish observational procedures for future speckle observations, including those made with advanced high school and college student researchers.

Difficulties encountered in the checkout are described, along with suggestions for overcoming them in the next run. In this paper we present TIERRAS , a Monte Carlo simulation program based on the well-known AIRES air shower simulations system that enables the propagation of particle cascades underground, providing a tool to study particles arriving underground from a primary cosmic ray on the atmosphere or to initiate cascades directly underground and propagate them, exiting into the atmosphere if necessary.

The first results of full underground shower simulations are presented, as an example of the package capabilities. AIRES 2. Nature of problem: Simulation of high and ultra high energy underground particle showers. In particular, it does not include muon photonuclear processes. This imposes a limitation on the application of this package to a depth of. PubMed Central. Bryophyte establishment represents a positive feedback process that enhances soil development in newly exposed terrain.

Further, biological nitrogen N fixation by cyanobacteria in association with mosses can be an important supply of N to terrestrial ecosystems, however the role of these associations during post-glacial primary succession is not yet fully understood. Here, we analyzed chronosequences in front of two receding glaciers with contrasting climatic conditions wetter vs drier at Cordillera Darwin Tierra del Fuego and found that most mosses had the capacity to support an epiphytic flora of cyanobacteria and exhibited high rates of N2 fixation.

Pioneer moss-cyanobacteria associations showed the highest N2 fixation rates 4. In drier climate, N2 fixation on bryophyte-cyanobacteria associations was also high 0. N2 fixation capacity on bryophytes was primarily driven by epiphytic cyanobacteria abundance rather than community composition.

Most liverworts showed low colonization and N2 fixation rates, and mosses did not exhibit consistent differences across life forms and habitat saxicolous vs terricolous.

We also found a clear relationship between cyanobacteria genera and the stages of ecological succession, but no relationship was found with host species identity. Glacier forelands in Tierra del Fuego show fast rates of soil transformation which imply large quantities of N inputs. Our results highlight the potential contribution of bryophyte-cyanobacteria associations to N accumulation during post-glacial primary succession and further describe the factors that drive N2-fixation rates in post-glacial areas with very low N deposition.

Bryophyte-cyanobacteria associations during primary succession in recently Deglaciated areas of Tierra del Fuego Chile. Reynoso, E. Two short cores cm were sampled using a Livingstone piston corer during the southern fall. Sediments are massive green clays to 70 cm depth with irregularly spaced thin sandy strata and lens. Massive yellow clay with thin sandy strata continues up to 30 cm depth; from here up to 10 cm yellow massive clays domain.

The topmost 10 cm are mixed yellow and green clays with fine sand. Additionally, we present results of magnetic parameters measured with vibrating sample magnetometer VSM. The stability of the NRM was analyzed by alternating field demagnetization.

The magnetic properties have shown variable values, showing changes in both grain size and concentration of magnetic minerals. It was found that the main carrier of remanence is magnetite with the presence of hematite in very low percentages. This is the first paleomagnetic study performed in lakes located in the northern, semiarid fuegian steppe, where humid-dry cycles have been interpreted all along the Holocene from an aeolian paleosoil sequence Orgeira et el, Comparison between paleomagnetic records of Laguna Carmen and results obtained in earlier studies carried out at Laguna Potrok Aike Gogorza et al.

Spatial abundance models and seasonal distribution for guanaco Lama guanicoe in central Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. Spatially explicit modelling allows to estimate population abundance and predict species' distribution in relation to environmental factors.

We assessed the influence of elevation, geographic location and distance to the coast on the seasonal abundance and distribution of guanaco Lama guanicoe in central Tierra del Fuego, by means of spatially explicit modelling. The estimated abundance was 23, individuals for the non-breeding season and 33, individuals for the breeding season.

The factors influencing distribution and abundance revealed to be the elevation for the non-breeding season, and the distance to the coast and geographic location for the breeding season. The southwest of the study area presented seasonal abundance variation and the southeast and northeast presented high abundance during both seasons.

The elevation would be the driving factor of guanaco distribution, as individuals move to lower areas during the non-breeding season and ascend to high areas during the breeding season. Our results confirm that part of the guanaco population performs seasonal migratory movements and that the main valleys present important wintering habitats for guanacos as well as up-hill zones during summer.

This type of study would help to avoid problems of scale mismatch and achieve better results in management actions and is an example of how to assess important seasonal habitats from evaluations of abundance and distribution patterns.

Dietary resilience among hunter-gatherers of Tierra del Fuego: Isotopic evidence in a diachronic perspective. The native groups of Patagonia have relied on a hunter-gatherer economy well after the first Europeans and North Americans reached this part of the world.

The large exploitation of marine mammals i. Similarly, the introduction of new foods might have changed local diet. These are the premises of our isotopic-based analysis. There is a large set of paleonutritional investigations through isotopic analysis on Fuegians groups, however a systematic exploration of food practices across time in relation to possible pre- and post-contact changes is still lacking. The data obtained reveal an unexpected isotopic uniformity across prehistoric and recent groups, with little variation in both carbon and nitrogen mean values, which we interpret as the possible evidence of resilience among these groups and persistence of subsistence strategies, allowing inferences on the dramatic contraction and extinction of Fuegian populations.

Paleoseismic observations of an onshore transform boundary: The Magallanes-Fagnano fault, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. Costa, C. We present preliminary information on the geomorphologic features and paleoseismic record associated with the ruptures of two Ms 7. The fault scarp was surveyed in several places cast of Lago Fagnano and a trench across a secondary fault trace of the Magallanes-Fagnano fault was excavated at the Ri??

The observed deformation in a 9 kyr-old peat bog sequence suggests evidence for two, and possibly three pre paleoearthquakes is preserved in the stratigraphy. The scarp reaches heights up to 11 m in late Pleistocene-Holocence? This observation also argues for the occurrence of previous events during the Quaternary.

Along die part of the fault we investigated east of Lago Fagnano, the horizontal component of the rupture does not exceed 4 m and is likely lower than 0. Paleomagnetic secular variations PSV give us information on the mechanisms of the geodynamo and can also be used for stratigraphic correlation on a regional scale.

An analysis of rock magnetic data suggests that the remanence signal is carried by Titanomagnetite grains in stable pseudo single domain PSD state. Notwithstanding the special mechanism of sedimentary deposition, the sequence is characterised by good paleomagnetic properties and can be used to reconstruct a continuous stratigraphic record that provides high-resolution declination, inclination and relative paleointensity curves for the period cal years BP.

The constructed PSV curves are in very good agreement with the available records of Southern Argentina, implying very promising results in the construction of curve patterns for the region.
