Dominance of evaporation on lacustrine groundwater discharge to regulate lake nutrient state and algal blooms.

Water Res 2022 May 16;219:118620. Epub 2022 May 16.

The University of Hong Kong, Zhejiang Institution of Research and Innovation (ZIRI), Hangzhou, China; The University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen Institution of Research and Innovation (SIRI), Shenzhen, China.

As global threats to freshwater lakes, eutrophication and harmful algal blooms (HABs) are governed by various biogeochemical, climatological and anthropogenic processes. Groundwater is key to join these processes in regulating HABs, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we leveraged basin-wide field data of Lake Taihu (China's largest eutrophic lake) and global archives, and demonstrate the dominance of evaporation on lacustrine groundwater discharge (LGD) in shallow lakes.

Slow-growing reef corals as climate archives: A case study of the Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum 40 Ma ago.

Sci Adv 2022 May 20;8(20):eabm3875. Epub 2022 May 20.

Institute for Geophysics and Geology, University of Leipzig, Talstrasse 35, 04103 Leipzig, Germany.

The skeletons of stony corals on tropical shallow-water reefs are high-resolution climate archives. However, their systematic use for unlocking climate dynamics of the geologic past is limited by the susceptibility of the porous aragonite skeleton to diagenetic alterations. Here, we present oxygen and carbon isotope time series (monthly resolution) from reef corals with an unusual unaltered preservation from the Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO) "hyperthermal" (40 million years ago).

Red Foxes in the Filing Cabinet: Günter Tembrock's Image Collection and Media Use in Mid-Century Ethology.

Authors:
Sophia Gräfe

Ber Wiss 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Philipps-University Marburg, Department of Media Studies.

This paper considers the epistemic career of visual media in ethology in the mid-20th century. Above all, ethologists claimed close contact with research animals and drew scientific evidence from these human-animal communities, particularly in public relations. However, if we look into the toolboxes of comparative behavioral biologists, it becomes evident that scientifically valid research results were primarily obtained by experimenting with model images.

"Humans and records are entangled": empathic engagement and emotional response in archivists.

Arch Sci (Dordr) 2022 May 9:1-21. Epub 2022 May 9.

Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.

There is growing awareness in archival communities that working with records that contain evidence of human pain and suffering can result in unsettling emotions for archivists. One important finding of this work, however, is the considerable variability in not only the nature of responses, but also the nature of records that provoke emotional responses. Using in-depth qualitative interviews with 20 archivists from across Canada and one from the United States, and employing grounded theory methodology, this study sought to better understand the nature of emotional responses and factors associated with distress.

Modern aridity in the Altai-Sayan mountain range derived from multiple millennial proxies.

Sci Rep 2022 May 11;12(1):7752. Epub 2022 May 11.

Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL, Zürcherstrasse 111, 8903, Birmensdorf, Switzerland.

Temperature and precipitation changes are crucial for larch trees growing at high-elevation sites covered by permafrost in the Altai-Sayan mountain range (ASMR). To contextualize the amplitude of recent climate fluctuations, we have to look into the past by analyzing millennial paleoclimatic archives recording both temperature and precipitation. We developed annually resolved 1500-year tree-ring cellulose chronologies (δC, δO), and used these new records to reconstruct the variability in local summer precipitation and air temperature.

Authors:
Lamia Moghnieh

Cult Med Psychiatry 2022 May 12. Epub 2022 May 12.

Department of English, Germanic and Romance Studies, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

This article traces the case of Hala, a woman chronic patient of the Lebanon Hospital for Mental and Nervous Disorders (LHMND) in late 1950s Lebanon. Her story reveals a conglomeration of actors, expertise and technologies that regulated both her sexuality and mental illness, as she was moved, returned, then moved again, from the care of the family to the care of the psychiatric institution. By reconstructing an ethnographic case of the story of Hala, the article tackles an under-investigated area of research at the intersection of subjectivity, sexuality, psychiatry and family life.
