14 2017 3:31 pm Scientists have pinpointed the start of the Sturtian snowball Earth event to about 717 million years ago (Source: NASA) Related News A perfect combination of erupting volcanoes along with a rapid cooling effect may have caused the largest glaciation event in history – known as ‘snowball Earth’ – that covered our planet pole-to-pole in ice more than 700 million years ago Harvard scientists say Understanding how these dramatic changes occur may help better understand how extinctions occurred and how climates change on other planets The root cause of the runaway glaciation has remained elusive for years Scientists have pinpointed the start of the Sturtian snowball Earth event to about 717 million years ago At around that time a huge volcanic event devastated an area from present-day Alaska to Greenland Watch all our videos from Express Technology “We know that volcanic activity can have a major effect on the environment so the big question was how are these two events related” said Francis Macdonald Associate Professor at Harvard University in the US Researchers wondered if aerosols emitted from these volcanoes have rapidly cooled Earth Studies of this region known as the Franklin large igneous province showed that volcanic rocks erupted through sulphur-rich sediments which would have been pushed into the atmosphere during eruption as sulphur dioxide When sulphur dioxide gets into the upper layers of the atmosphere it is very good at blocking solar radiation Sulphur dioxide is most effective at blocking solar radiation if it gets past the tropopause the boundary separating the troposphere and stratosphere If it reaches this height it is less likely to be brought back down to earth in precipitation or mixed with other particles extending its presence in the atmosphere from about a week to about a year Another important aspect is where the sulphur dioxide plumes reach the stratosphere Due to continental drift 717 million years ago the Franklin large igneous province where these eruptions took place was situated near the equator the entry point for most of the solar radiation that keeps the Earth warm An effective light-reflecting gas entered the atmosphere at just the right location and height to cause cooling The eruptions throwing sulphur into the air 717 million years ago were not one-off explosions The volcanoes spanned almost 2000 miles across Canada and Greenland Instead of singularly explosive eruptions they can erupt continuously Researchers showed that a decade of continual eruptions from this type of volcanoes could have poured enough aerosols into the atmosphere to rapidly destabilise the climate “Cooling from aerosols doesn’t have to freeze the whole planet; it just has to drive the ice to a critical latitude Then the ice does the rest” said Macdonald The more ice the more sunlight is reflected and the cooler the planet becomes Once the ice reaches latitudes around present-day California the positive feedback loop takes over and the runaway snowball effect is pretty much unstoppable For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | New Delhi |

has collaborated with musicians as diverse as John McLaughlin Mickey Hart and Bill Laswell on a plethora of genre-defying fusion projects Yet tabla maestro Zakir Hussain doesn’t like being called the “flagbearer” of fusion music which he says has “existed in India for a thousand years” “The north Indian classical music that anybody performs be it Ravi Shankar Vilayat Khan or Bhimsen Joshi is actually a fusion The sufi poet-saint Amir Khusro was so taken by the music that was performed in the temples which was called haveli sangeet or prabandh gayaki It was close to dhrupad style He was taken in by the soulfulness of the music and the devotion in the music towards the gods and goddesses” Hussain said in a telephonic interview from Mumbai According to Hussain the devotional music reminded Khusro of the kaul and kalbana “which were the sufi singing forms of meditation now known as Qawwali” “He took the forms from temples and the kaul and kalbana and meshed them together and came up with the form of music now known as khayal which all north Indian classical musicians perform So the fusion began then” added the Padma Bhushan-awardee who will perform a solo concert in Hyderabad in January to mark the 50-year celebration of Taj Mahal Tea Hussain credits late sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar for taking Indian classical music to the stage “Someone like Ravi Shankar took it (Indian classical music) abroad and created what we now know was the stagecraft of Indian classical music which is how to perform Indian classical music on stage because it was restricted to the palaces” said the internationally celebrated musician who started touring when he was all of 12 The 64-year-old also credits digital media for helping Indian classical music reach a wider audience (Source: IANS) The musician released a live album called “Distant Kin” earlier in September which features a collaboration between Indian classical and Celtic music Hussain said that the music which the Scottish musicians played reminded him of the tunes he had heard as a child at a dargah in Mumbai’s Mahim neighbourhood where a marching band played instruments like “bagpipes Peshawari shehnai horns from the Western world Western snare and bowl in a frame drum” “When I arrived in Scotland I asked the musicians to play the Celtic music The songs that they started to play were what I had heard as a nine- or 10-year-old It turns out that 150 years ago in the British army on the frontier land there were musicians from both countries inducted into the band or the marching band of the British army “Where shehnai players dhol players dhakis… they would play music or the march past for the army and once they settled down they had jam sessions They taught each other Scottish Irish and Brittany (music)… It included Pakistanis Maharashtrians Punjabis It was amazing to see the 150-year-old music in that room” Hussain said The 64-year-old also credits digital media for helping Indian classical music reach a wider audience “Indian classical music is not a huge seller when it comes to CDs or DVDs You sell 20000 to 30000 copies not millions… When it (music) is on digital media it is not cutting down on sales Something like YouTube audios and videos which have 200000-300000 hits are great… iTunes Facebook or wherever it is it just brings visibility to the music” Hussain meanwhile is looking forward to his live show “What’s interesting to me is that when I did the first advertisement for Taj Tea that was in Agra overlooking the Taj There was just the tabla and me and after 40 years when I go to Hyderabad it is going to be just that tabla and me In other words it is the same visual and same memory from way back; and that for me is emotional” he said For all the latest
