The Frogs needed all 10 of junior guard Toree Thompson’s first-quarter points to take a slim 28-22 lead at halftime.The second half was the complete opposite.Senior Jada Butts started the third quarter with five consecutive points as Sam Houston State had turnovers on their first two possessions. In the third quarter alone, the Frogs forced 11 turnovers.“We knew we had more effort and more time to give, and we were not doing that in the first quarter,” Butts said on the pace of the game after halftime. “And she [Raegan Pebley] told us, ‘play better, push yourself no matter what the score is’.”Freshman guard Amber Ramirez scored all nine of her points in the third quarter off 3-pointers. She and junior guard A.J. Alix tied for game-high honors with seven assists each. As a team, TCU posted 24 assists and just 10 turnovers.The fourth quarter was no different as TCU held the Bearkats to 1-of-18 shooting over the final 10 minutes. In just the second half, TCU outscored the Bearkats 53-15, marking the fifth time in program history TCU has held a team under 15 points in a second half.In the overall game, the Frogs held Sam Houston State to 15.7 percent (8-of-51) shooting, marking it the third best defensive effort in school history.Kianna Ray and Jordan Moore joined Thompson and Amy Okonkwo in double figures with 13 and 10 points, respectively. They each hit 5-of-6 from the floor and Moore posted a team-high three blocks.“In general, it allowed us to get more aggressive. We knew to have each other’s back a little more,” Pebley said on switching defenses at halftime. “Which meant we couldn’t rest off the ball, and I always think once you start generating scoring off from your defense, it will make things easier and it forces a team to play uphill against you. And making those tweaks in our defense and applying our press definitely helped. It’s been a part of what we know we can do and we have a few plays that can help us change things up.”TCU will tip off the third of its four-game homestand when SMU visits Schollmaier Arena at 2 p.m. Sunday. The meeting will be the 59th all-time between TCU and SMU, the most against any opponent in program history for TCU.

Environmental signals in a highly resolved ice core from James Ross Island, Antarctica

first_imgThe accumulation, isotopic and chemical signals of an ice core from James Ross Island, Antarctica, are investigated for the interval from 1967 to 2008. Over this interval, comparison with station, satellite and reanalysis data allows for a detailed assessment of the environmental information preserved in the ice. Accumulation at James Ross Island is enhanced during years when the circumpolar westerlies are weak, allowing more precipitation events to reach the northeastern Antarctic Peninsula. The stable water isotope composition of the ice core has an interannual temperature dependence consistent with the spatial isotope‐temperature gradient across Antarctica, and preserves information about both summer and winter temperature variability in the region. Sea salts in the ice core are derived from open water sources in the marginal sea ice zone to the north of James Ross Island and transported to the site by strengthened northerly and westerly winds in the winter. A strong covariance with temperature means that the sea salt record may be able to be utilized, in conjunction with the isotope signal, as an indicator of winter temperature. Marine biogenic compounds in the ice core are derived from summer productivity within the sea ice zone to the south of James Ross Island. This source region may have become significant only in recent decades, when the collapse of nearby ice shelves established new sites of open water with high summer productivity. These findings provide a foundation for interpreting the environmental signals in the James Ross Island ice core, which extends though the whole Holocene and represents the oldest ice core that has been recovered from the Antarctic Peninsula region.last_img read more
