A coordinated atmosphere-ocean research project, centered on a rare wintertime field campaign to the Iceland and Greenland Seas, seeks to determine the location and causes of dense water formation by cold-air outbreaks. The Iceland Greenland Seas Project (IGP) is a coordinated atmosphere-ocean research program investigating climate processes in the source region of the densest waters of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. During February and March 2018, a field campaign was executed over the Iceland and southern Greenland Seas that utilized a range of observing platforms to investigate critical processes in the region – including a research vessel, a research aircraft, moorings, sea gliders, floats and a meteorological buoy. A remarkable feature of the field campaign was the highly-coordinated deployment of the observing platforms, whereby the research vessel and aircraft tracks were planned in concert to allow simultaneous sampling of the atmosphere, the ocean and their interactions. This joint planning was supported by tailor-made convection-permitting weather forecasts and novel diagnostics from an ensemble prediction system. The scientific aims of the IGP are to characterize the atmospheric forcing and the ocean response of coupled processes; in particular, cold-air outbreaks in the vicinity of the marginal-ice zone and their triggering of oceanic heat loss, and the role of freshwater in the generation of dense water masses. The campaign observed the lifecycle of a long-lasting cold-air outbreak over the Iceland Sea and the development of a cold-air outbreak over the Greenland Sea. Repeated profiling revealed the immediate impact on the ocean, while a comprehensive hydrographic survey provided a rare picture of these subpolar seas in winter. A joint atmosphere-ocean approach is also being used in the analysis phase, with coupled observational analysis and coordinated numerical modelling activities underway.

The ship is deployed in Djibouti and integrated in EUNAVFOR’s operation ‘Atalanta’ since April 6th, fighting piracy in the Indian Ocean.Once on board, JEMAD addressed the ship’s crew on behalf of the Minister of Defense and on his own behalf, to thank on their endeavors and congratulate them for the success of the operation. He encouraged them not to lower their guard despite the fact that piracy is now in its weakest moments.Before concluding the visit, the commanding officer of the ‘Numancia’, Commander Luis Díaz-Bedia, briefed JEMAD on the details of the operation within which 31 vessels have been challenged and searched, and two medical evacuations were also arranged. So far, the ship has been 101 days out of base since her departure from Rota Naval Base sailing nearly 20,000 miles in 84-day runs.[mappress]Press Release, July 5, 2013; Image: Spanish Navy July 5, 2013 View post tag: ATALANTA JEMAD Receives Briefing on FFG Numancia’s Role in Atalanta View post tag: Numancia View post tag: Spanish View post tag: FFG View post tag: Naval View post tag: JEMAD View post tag: Defence Share this article View post tag: chief View post tag: News by topic Authorities View post tag: role View post tag: receives Back to overview,Home naval-today JEMAD Receives Briefing on FFG Numancia’s Role in Atalanta
View post tag: Type 23 Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today New anti-air missiles on Type 23 frigates put on display for sailors Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigates were given a major anti-air capability upgrade with the Sea Ceptor missile which was recently put on display to soldiers in charge of shooting down enemy aircraft.The HMS Westminster is in the closing stages of a major overhaul in Portsmouth Naval Base which has seen her become one of the first ships in the Fleet to receive Sea Ceptor, the new short-range shield against air attack.The weapon and its supporting radar system will gradually replace the ageing Seawolf missiles fitted across the Type 23 frigate flotilla.In its place, the vertically-launched supersonic Sea Ceptor which is slightly heavier than its predecessor and has a much greater range: more than 25km (15 miles), two and a half times the distance of Seawolf.Westminster is the first ship to receive the Navy’s new shield against air attack system which is also being installed on sister ships Argyll and Montrose during their revamps in Devonport.Rapier is on the verge of retirement, in favour of a ground-based version of Sea Ceptor (short for interceptor).The large trackers which guided the old system have been removed and replaced with its successor’s smaller, more powerful sensors.And the silo has been adapted to accommodate the new supersonic missiles, heavier, over one meter longer and with a range of more than 25km (15 miles), more than twice that of Seawolf.In addition, engineers have installed the Artisan radar which is rapidly becoming prevalent on the Type 23s – it can track more than 800 objects simultaneously as close as 200 meters and as far away as 200,000 (200km, 125 miles, or from Portsmouth to Calais as the crow flies).The gunners of 16 Regiment Royal Artillery, based at Thorney Island – just along the coast from Portsmouth – currently use the veteran Rapier missile to provide their infantry and armoured comrades with cover on the battlefield.Officers and senior non-commissioned officers from 16 Regiment, led by Lieutenant Colonel James Mardlin, made the short trip to Portsmouth to hear both from the ship’s company and from the new missile’s developers MBDA about progress with the system to date and what the future might hold in store for Ceptor.“We are excited about being able to work together over the next few years,” said Lieutenant Commander Chris L’Amie, Westminster’s Senior Naval Officer.“The introduction of Ceptor is a real opportunity for both us and 16 Regiment to learn from each other. We will continue to foster a strong working relationship with our closest military neighbours.”His ship will return to the Fleet next year with a new look and as the Royal Navy’s premier submarine hunter.

After a great first night to open up their run at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie in Grand Prairie, TX, Phish returned to venue for to close out the two night stand.Tonight’s show was the last before Las Vegas, as anticipation continues to build for what is sure to be an incredible Halloween show. With so much excitement on the horizon, it was a bit strange that Phish responded with a more sentimental and reflective performance. The show was highlighted more by the few bust outs included than anything else, and never crossed the 10-minute mark in any single song during the second set. When was the last time the first and second set had the same number of songs?The first set brought some fun energy to the table, starting with the once-rare “Daniel Saw The Stone,” a traditional reggae influenced tune that hadn’t been played since 2012 before this year. Now in its third iteration of 2016, “Daniel” was an upbeat way to start the show, and both “The Moma Dance” and “Chalk Dust Torture” kept that energy running strongly through the start of the first set. A cover of Talking Heads’ “Cities” came next, as the band continued to rock out in Texas.Just a couple of days ago, phans everywhere had noticed that no songs from Phish’s studio debut, Junta, had been played yet on tour. While fans were hopeful for a classic album Halloween, the band broke out into “David Bowie” on the first night in Grand Prairie, effectively nixing the possibility. The real surprise came on night two, when Phish transitioned from “Cities” into the Junta composition “Foam.” Easily one of the most challenging songs in Phish’s repertoire, the band nailed this bust out version – it hadn’t been played since 2014 (70 shows).After the Mike Gordon led “Waking Up Dead” from Big Boat, the band put yet another Junta track in the first set: “Divided Sky.” The tour debut version was as captivating as ever, ending with an uplifting melodic jam out. Jon Fishman got the curtain call next, as the band went into the classic “I Didn’t Know” featuring the drummer with a great vacuum solo. Trey Anastasio was joking about Texas during the song as well, only adding to the silliness. From there, the band launched into James Gang’s “Walk Away,” another once-rare cover that returned in summer 2016 and reprised during tonight’s show. Trey was wailing on the funky cover, and Page McConnell led the song’s vocals nicely.After “Walk Away,” the band again brought out their drawling instrumental “What’s The Use?” for a slower moment of the set. Afterwards, Trey immediately started singing the lyrics to the Big Boat song “More,” pulsating love and light to the Texan crowd. It was quite the happy-go-lucky way to end a great set of music.Phish started their second set with a pair of Joy tracks, opening with the rocking “Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan” before bringing out the first “Backwards Down The Number Line” of the tour. Amazingly, the band hadn’t played the song in 13 shows – the longest gap since its debut in 2009. Trey led an upbeat solo through the end of the song, and kept the mood sentimental with the first “Lifeboy” since 12/29/11 (189 shows) The song led into a nice ambient jam moment, before ending smoothly. Still, the energy level remained very low throughout the set.Page then brought out the organ introduction of fan-favorite “Meatstick,” another exciting tour debut for the fans in Texas. They kept the set rolling with “The Line,” playing the Fuego track for the first time on this fall tour, and maintained the mellow mood with Big Boat song “Tide Turns.” A lot of melodic Trey playing punctuated the first half of the second set, but the band pivoted with a great version of “Taste.” Trey teased “What’s The Use?” throughout the jam, essentially reprising the instrumental before completing the wind-up ending of “Taste.”The band offered up the next big bust out of the set, “Friday,” playing the song for the first time since 2004 – a gap of 325 shows. A song that many thought had been shelved for good, its return seems to be symbolic of Phish’s overall sentimental mindset. Big Boat was a pensive effort that saw the band’s members try their hand at reflective songwriting. “Friday” is certainly of a similar mentality, as the band last played it at Coventry – their final shows before breaking up. Sentimental, though it did very little to pick up the energy of the second set.“Waves” followed, offering the first real improvisation of the set. The jam was short-lived however, and the band finally brought some rock and roll to the show with the song “Julius.” Page had some nice piano solos during the early part of the jam, before Trey took the lead with some blues-rock inspired playing. They finished out the second set with a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times Bad Times,” nailing it as per usual. Still, with no songs even crossing the 10 minute mark in the second set, it felt more like two first sets in Grand Prairie than anything else.To put the final nail in the coffin, the band returned for an encore of “Show Of Life.” Though the show did have some fun moments, it’s hard to not look at the setlist as a fairly sleepy collection of Phish songs. Perhaps they’re just saving the big-energy moments for Las Vegas, hopefully playing it safe while they continue to work on whatever is in store for Halloween. Whatever the case may be, we’re still excited to get to the MGM Grand.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of Phish.net.Setlist: Phish at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, Grand Prairie, TX – 10/25/16Set 1: Daniel Saw the Stone, The Moma Dance > Chalk Dust Torture, Cities, Foam, Waking Up Dead, Divided Sky, I Didn’t Know, Walk Away > What’s the Use? > MoreSet 2: Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Backwards Down the Number Line > Lifeboy, Meatstick, The Line, Tide Turns > Taste, Friday, Waves > Julius > Good Times Bad TimesEncore: Show Of Life
