Ag Groups Applaud Precision Ag Connectivity Act

first_img The American Soybean Association is among agriculture groups applauding the Senate Commerce Committee for pushing the Precision Agriculture Connectivity Act of 2018 forward in the legislative process. ASA President John Heisdorffer says his group welcomes the Precision Agriculture Connectivity Act of 2018. “This legislation understands the unique needs of growers across rural America,” Heisdorffer says. “We urge swift passage in the U.S. Senate as wireless broadband connections in the field support farm operations and, in turn, rural communities.”The American Farm Bureau Federation says the bill would create a task force designed to focus in on the connectivity and technology needs of modern farmers, who are too often without connectivity in the fields and on the ranches where they work. Farm Bureau says precision agriculture maximizes yield, lowers environmental impact, and improves farm profitability, which is important at a time when farmers need to maximize every penny they can to survive.The Federal Communications Commission says 39 percent of rural Americans lack access to basic broadband services compared to only 4 percent of urban Americans.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Groups Applaud Precision Ag Connectivity Act Previous articleU.S. Beef Could Expand In E.U.

Draping or overriding: the effect of horizontal stress gradients on internal layer architecture in ice sheets

first_imgInternal isochronic layers in ice sheets sensed by radar show two characteristic relationships to the basal topography: Either they override it, with layers above the crests of rises lying essentially flat, or they drape over it, with the layers following rises and falls in basal topography. A mechanical theory is presented which shows that overriding is the expected behavior when topographic wavelengths are comparable with or less than the ice thickness, while draping occurs at longer wavelengths. This is shown with analytical perturbation solutions for Newtonian fluids, numerical perturbation solutions for nonlinear fluids, and finite element solutions for nonlinear fluids and large-amplitude variations. Bed variation from topography and changes in the basal boundary condition are considered, for fixed bed and sliding beds, as well as three-dimensional flows and thermomechanically coupled flows. In all cases, the dominant effect on draping/overriding is the wavelength of the topography or variation in basal boundary conditions. Results of these full mechanical system calculations are compared with those from the shallow ice approximation and the longitudinal stress approximation. Some calculations are carried out for zero accumulation, where the age of the ice and therefore isochrone geometry is not defined. It is shown that there is a close relationship between isochrones and streamlines, and that they behave similarly when bed wavelength divided by the ice thickness is small compared with the ratio of ice velocity and accumulation rate, which is a useful approximation. Numerical comparisons of isochrones and streamlines show them to be virtually coincident.last_img read more
