Inilchek Glacier serves as an excellent archive to reconstruct the regional evolution of anthropogenic pollutants, due to its proximity to major Soviet and Chinese (western province of Xinjiang) industrial and agricultural centers that developed rapidly during mid-late twentieth century.Kirby and Kaitlin Swickard of Five Dot Ranch don’t mind if you call them cowboys, even though they are cowgirls.The two young women have joined the Five Dot Ranch family business, and represent the latest generation of the Swickard family that has produced grain and livestock in California since the 1850s.

Ice core records have previously been utilized to reconstruct atmospheric heavy metal concentrations in the northern hemisphere (e.g.

Boutron et al., 1991, Eichler et al., 2012, Eichler et al., 2014, Hong et al., 2009, Kaspari et al., 2009, Li et al., 2006, Mc Connell et al., 2006, Osterberg et al., 2008, Schwikowski et al., 2004, Shotyk et al., 2005 and Van de Velde et al., 2000).

excess (ex) and enrichment factor (EF)), reveal that discernable anthropogenic inputs began during the 1950s and rapidly increased to the late-1970s and early 1980s, by factors up to of 5, 6 and 3, respectively, relative to a 1910–1950 means.

Pb, Cd and Cu concentrations between the 1950s-1980s are reflective of large-scale Soviet industrial and agricultural development, including the growth of production and/or consumption of the non-ferrous metals, coal and phosphate fertilizers.

While 15.5 per cent of Americans live in poverty, and 12 per cent of Coloradans live in poverty, just 4.8 per cent of people in Centennial are below the poverty line.

The city was also lauded for its strong education record - with high school scores 6 per cent above the national average.

The study surmises that the pull for Danbury residents is the sheer amount of activities at their disposal.

In Centennial, households earn about ,000 more than other Coloradans.

The trace element records reveal pronounced temporal baseline trends and concentration maxima characteristic of post-1950 anthropogenic emissions.
