Will Wonder Women never cease. The bodies of four female Amazon warriors buried in the 4th century B. The Scythians were the model for Wonder Woman, the fictional superhero first created in , as The New Yorker noted in Russian researchers at the RAS Institute of Archaeology used accompanying items to date the burial as during the 4th century B. Two of the graves had been looted over the years, but two were intact. Robbed were the graves of a year old woman and a teenage girl aged 12 or 13, the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences said in a statement.

But among the artifacts were found more than 30 iron arrowheads, an iron hook shaped in the form of a bird, horse harness elements, iron hooks for suspending reins, iron knives, fragments of molded vessels and a myriad of animal bones, the archaeology institute said. Other artifacts were scattered in the tunnel the grave robbers had hewn, vessels dating from the second to third quarter of the 4th century B.

Such hats were normally only found on royalty. Moreover, few such headdresses have survived burial intact, making this a rare and informative find. She also wore a glass bead bracelet. An incense burner and a black lacquered vessel, both dating to the second quarter of the 4th century B. The Scythians were Eurasian peoples of the steppes who cultivated a mastery of horseback riding and archery over thousands of years, according to Stanford University.

Amazons were the stuff of legend dating back to ancient Greece.

Mussi has been on-and-off single for nearly 15 years while Resto has been single in Seattle for the past three years. We find a spot to sit down, I grab my pen, and turn on my recorder. He offers to buy me a beer, but I decline. We both get our own drinks because this is not a date. A little embarrassed, Mussi realized he spent a lot of time swiping on dating apps. His project was born.

Why settle, right? More and more couples are meeting by app. Nearly half of all singles in the U. Unlike the unlimited variety of potential dates on dating apps, however, the market ownership remains fairly limited. Nearly a quarter of the market is owned by Match Group , which has 45 dating entities, including Tinder, Plenty of Fish and Hinge.

Welcome to Aqua Expeditions

This research site is located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest in northern Brazil, about km north of Manaus. Its aim is to continuously record meteorological, chemical and biological data, such as the concentration of greenhouses gases. With the help of these data, we hope to gain insights into how the Amazon interacts with the overlying atmosphere and the soil below. Because this region is of such importance to the global climate, it is vital to get a better understanding of these complex processes.

The Amazon basin was a hotspot for the early cultivation of plants, with inhabitants having munched on squash and cassava more than 10,

Between the passengers who bumped sailings because of the pandemic and general interest in getting out to sea again, cabins on ships both small and large, river and ocean, are filling up fast. Having proliferated its fleet and expanded into Asia with much success, it has gone back to its origins in South America to elevate its already exceptional offering there.

Aqua Nera is the result of those ambitions — a new, cabin river-cruiser that will make its first journey in October. In an uncertain time, we are offering you certainty and peace of mind. Our number one priority at Aqua Expeditions is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our guests and crew throughout this challenging period. Suspension of all scheduled departures in accordance with the travel restrictions and border closures placed by the governments in the country of our destinations, with planned departures resuming August We took early, swift and decisive action to maintain strict anti-viral hygiene standards on all our vessels and are performing health screenings for all passengers prior to embarkation.

Isochrons for Martian Crater Populations

Baker, Kyle G. Dexter, Simon L. Lewis, Roel J. Brienen, Ted R. Most of the planet’s diversity is concentrated in the tropics, which includes many regions undergoing rapid climate change. Yet, while climate-induced biodiversity changes are widely documented elsewhere, few studies have addressed this issue for lowland tropical ecosystems.

Below you will find a text describing the basic principles behind the Planetary Science Institute system of utilizing crater counts and isochron diagrams in order to estimate crater retention ages of surfaces on Mars. As discussed by Hartmann the crater numbers can date the actual formation age of a surface in an ideal case, such as a broad lava flow which forms a one-time eruptive event.

The flow accumulates craters and the crater numbers date the time of formation. In other cases, not uncommon on Mars, the story is more complex. For example a surface may be covered by a few hundred meters of mobile sand dunes; the numbers of craters of diameter D and depth d would give a mean characteristic age of topographic features of the scale of D,d. Smaller craters in mobile dunes would disappear faster and have lower mean ages. In this sense, the derived age is a size-dependent Acrater retention age B the survival time of craters of given size.

Another example is exhumation, which is common on Mars Malin and Edgett , A surface could be formed and covered by sediments at some later time, degrading any craters on the original surface. Much later, the surface may be exhumed, as documented in various cases by Malin and Edgett. In an ideal case, such a surface might then show vestiges of the degraded original craters indicating the duration of exposure of the first surface and a second population of fresh, small, sharp-rimmed craters formed since the recent exhumation event.

Malin and Edgett , , thinking in terms of dating the underlying process, asserted that such processes render Martian crater counts more or less useless for dating. On the contrary, such a situation can give extremely valuable estimates of the timescale of the exhumation processes, not to mention the timescale of exposure of the original underlying surface which in turn is a lower limit to its age.

Brazil fires prompt ‘prayers’ for Amazon rainforest. Thousands of fires are ravaging the Amazon rainforest in Brazil – the most intense blazes for almost a decade. Huge fires have also been burning across the border in Bolivia, devastating swaths of the country’s tropical forest and savannah. So what’s happening exactly and how bad are the fires? There have been a lot of fires this year. Brazil – home to more than half the Amazon rainforest – has seen a high number of fires in , Brazilian space agency data suggests.

The official figures show more than 87, forest fires were recorded in Brazil in the first eight months of the year – the highest number since That compares with 49, in the same period in Nasa, which provides Inpe with its active fire data, confirmed recordings from its satellite sensors also indicated had been the most active year for almost a decade. However, is not the worst year in recent history.

Brazil experienced more fire activity in the s – with seeing more than , fires in the first eight months of the year. Forest fires are common in the Amazon during the dry season, which runs from July to October. They can be caused by naturally occurring events, such as lightning strikes, but this year most are believed to have been started by farmers and loggers clearing land for crops or grazing.

There had been a noticeable increase in large, intense, and persistent fires along major roads in the central Brazilian Amazon, said Douglas Morton, head of the Biospheric Sciences Laboratory at Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
