There were a number of sign-posting calls, people looking to know about other services and information and these are extremely important also.”Regarding the volunteer piece, she said: “Through the GAA, FAI and Munster Rugby and local rugby clubs, we have well over 300 volunteers already signed up. But then we have had hundreds of more calls on top of that from volunteers.“These include from businesses who are offering their services for free and we are so grateful to these. Some of the offers are specific to what the businesses do themselves but others are just offering their time and their vehicles.“This is all so encouraging. Limerick people collectively have put their hands up and said they want to help. It says a lot about them. People from all areas of the city and county, from all backgrounds, male and female.“We really couldn’t be happier and we are ready now for any spike in activity over the coming weeks and months. Ultimately, we are going to have to protect those most vulnerable to the virus for quite some time yet and we will be here to do that as long as is needed.”The Limerick COVID-19 Community Response is based at Munster GAA headquarters – home also of Limerick GAA – and can be contacted on FreePhone 1800 832 005 or [email protected] for support.

Chlorophyll/nutrient characteristics in the water masses to the north of South Georgia, Southern Ocean

first_imgChlorophyll a and nutrient concentrations along with temperature and salinity values were measured at 22 CTD stations along a 735-km transect running to the northwest of the island of South Georgia, Southern Ocean. Measurements were repeated during five summer surveys (January and February 1994, January 1996, December 1996, January 1998) and one spring survey (October 1997). The transect sampled Sub-Antarctic Zone water in the north, Polar Frontal Zone water and Antarctic Zone water in the south. Chlorophyll a concentrations were lowest to the north of the transect and frequently high (up to 17 mg m−3) in the deep open ocean of the Antarctic Zone. Sub-surface peaks were measured in all zones and chlorophyll a was detectable to a depth of 150 m. There was a clear latitudinal temperature gradient in the near-surface waters (0–50 m), the warmest water occurring in the north (∼12 °C), and the coolest in the Antarctic Zone (∼2 °C). There was also a well-defined latitudinal gradient in summer near-surface silicate concentrations (∼2, 4, and 10 mmol m−3 in the Sub-Antarctic Zone, the Polar Frontal Zone and the Antarctic Zone, respectively), increasing to >20 mmol m−3 near South Georgia. Distinct differences in silicate concentrations were also evident in all three zones to a depth of 500 m. Near-surface nitrate and phosphate concentrations were relatively low to the north of the transect (∼14 and 1 mmol m−3, respectively) and higher in the Polar Frontal Zone and Antarctic Zone (∼18 and 1.4 mmol m−3, respectively). Ammonium and nitrite were restricted to the upper 200 m of the water column, and exhibited sub-surface concentration peaks, the lowest being in the Sub-Antarctic Zone (0.68 and 0.25 mmol m−3, respectively) and the highest in the Antarctic Zone (1.72 and 0.29 mmol m−3, respectively). Surface (∼6 m) spring nutrient measurements provided an indication of pre-bloom conditions; ammonium and nitrite concentrations were low (∼0.27 and 0.28 mmol m−3, respectively), while silicate, nitrate and phosphate concentrations were high and similar to previously measured winter values (e.g. ∼26, 23, 2 mmol m−3, respectively in the Antarctic Zone). Although the values measured were very variable, and there was some evidence of a seasonal growth progression, the chlorophyll a and nutrient distribution patterns were dominated by intercruise (interannual) factors. Approximate nutrient depletions (spring minus summer) appeared similar in the Polar Frontal Zone and Antarctic Zone for nitrate and phosphate, while silicate showed a marked latitudinal increase from north to south throughout the transect. Highest chlorophyll a concentrations coincided with the highest apparent silicate depletions over the deep ocean of the Antarctic Zone. In this area, relatively warm, easterly flowing Antarctic Circumpolar Current water meets cooler, westerly flowing water that is influenced by the Weddell-Scotia Confluence and is rich in nutrients, especially silicate.last_img read more
