Which UK and US stocks should I buy in February?

first_img Two companies that I’m considering adding to my Stocks and Shares portfolio this month are UK stock Avon Rubber (LSE:AVON) and US stock Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS). I’ve liked both these companies for a long time, but now I’m inspecting the pros and cons of investing in each one.A UK stock with a niche productBritish manufacturing company Avon Rubber has contracts with US and international governments. Along with defence products for the military, it makes respiratory aids for the emergency services. These have been in high demand during the pandemic.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential… The Avon Rubber share price is up 13% in a year and 312% in the past five years. It’s been declining since November when it suffered a setback. It was due to deliver an order to the US Army that was unfortunately delayed, which will affect this year’s profit margin. Today its price-to-earnings ratio has fallen to a cheap looking 7. Avon offers a dividend yield of 0.9% and earnings per share are £4.47. It has earnings growth and a strong balance sheet, having sold its milk division last year.The order delays are for a business that appeared to be poised to thrive. However, it’s still winning orders. And given the geopolitical conflict in the world, I doubt demand for Avon Rubber’s products will dry up. If the company can get back to delivering its high-quality products on time, then I believe its share price will recover too. I’d be happy to add Avon Rubber to my portfolio for a minimum five- to ten-year period.A long established investmentI’m truly amazed by how well Walt Disney Company did in 2020, considering the pandemic closed all its parks and destroyed its hospitality business. But the launch of its streaming network Disney+ outperformed even the most bullish of expectations. Disney’s back catalogue is enormous and has something for everyone from toddler to OAP. This gives it a powerful advantage over competitors. And its established reputation gives it plenty of access to the capital necessary to keep churning out hit series and films.Disney+ is expanding into new markets across Eastern Europe, South Korea, and Hong Kong, among others. But it’s not just Disney+ that brings home the bacon. Disney also owns streaming services ESPN+ and Hulu, which are both big earners for the company. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Which UK and US stocks should I buy in February?

It’s also rolling out another streaming service with content from many of its other successful assets, such as ABC Studios.The downside to investing in Disney is that its share price has already made a phenomenal rebound since the March 2020 market crash. Its P/E is now 74, which indicates an expensive stock. Also, Disney bought Twenty-First Century Fox in a $71bn acquisition. This is an enormous debt burden for the company to carry when times are tough. I think the next year or two could continue to pose some challenges to the group. Nevertheless, I think it’s got great long-term potential, and I’d be happy to own shares of Disney in my Stocks and Shares ISA.

Church tries to help reservation chilled by propane crisis

first_img Rector Pittsburgh, PA Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Feb 17, 2014 Featured Events Rector Collierville, TN Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Hopkinsville, KY February 17, 2014 at 8:33 pm This knowledge is agonizing. Gordon Tree Top, Sr. and Debbie Dogskin should never have lost their lives in their own homes, burning and freezing to death because they had no reasonable way to heat even one room. My heart breaks for them, for the pain and loneliness of those deaths. It is good that the various agencies are now working together to come up with different ways of heating, but I was shocked to read this: “It is uncommon for those missions to have electricity, water and indoor toilets, a situation that is also not uncommon for members’ homes.” Until the homes can be made safer, with heat in winter, could we not look immediately to a national effort to provide these most basic needs at the Episcopal churches using renewable energy, so that they could be offered as safe havens for their members and other neighbors when the weather is so horrendously dangerous? AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Belleville, IL Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Kathleen Murff Whiting says: Debbie Dogskin, 61, was found dead Feb. 4 in this mobile home with an empty propane tank in Fort Yates, North Dakota on the Standing Rock Reservation. A nationwide propane shortage has hit the Sioux reservation that straddles the Dakotas’ border particularly hard. A more than doubling of the fuel’s cost has crippled efforts to stay warm — and alive — through the harsh winter where most people rely on propane to heat their often-ramshackle homes. Photo: Tom Stromme, Bismarck Tribune, Associated Press[Episcopal News Service] Sometimes a person in need encounters the Episcopal Church’s ministry at the gas station.The Rev. Canon John Floberg, canon missioner for the Episcopal Church community on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, was paying his bill on Feb. 12 at a gas station on the reservation when a young woman told him about having to replace her frozen, broken hot water heater. She said she had heard that the Episcopal churches might be able to help folks like her.Floberg took her $370 receipt and found the money to reimburse her. The woman, he suspected, was working at a minimum-wage job so such an expense would have taken about a week of wages.Winters are always hard in the Dakotas but this year’s brutal temperatures have been made worse by regional propane shortages and skyrocketing prices.The two counties that Standing Rock encompasses, Sioux County in North Dakota and Corson County in South Dakota, have the seventh and ninth highest poverty rates, respectively, in the country, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics reported here. Most reservation residents are Sioux Indians. Between 80 and 90 percent of the people on the reservation depend on propane. That’s about 5,000 homes whose residents are at some level of risk, according to Floberg.Many reservation residents live in houses with ill-fitting doors, single-pane windows or boards where glass used to be and roof that leak heat. Keeping such homes warm is especially expensive. Inside of some homes “you can find frost in the corners of the room up on the ceiling,” he said.On Standing Rock, two people have died in what Floberg said “I can pretty well say that are connected” to the propane crisis. Both deaths occurred in Fort Yates, North Dakota, the seat of the tribal government.On Jan. 5, Gordon Tree Top Sr., 66, a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church where his sister is a vestry member, died when fire destroyed his house. Floberg said Tree Top was using a space heater to keep warm and it appears to have ignited the couch on which the man was found.Then on Feb. 4 Debbie Dogskin, 61, was found dead in a mobile home with an empty propane tank. Preliminary autopsy results released Feb. 9 did not identify a cause of death, but Sioux County Sheriff Frank Landeis said he believes Dogskin froze to death because it was as cold inside the home as out that morning — 1 degree below zero, ABC News reported.In such conditions, a 500-gallon tank of propane lasts perhaps a month. It takes 400 gallons to fill such a tank, leaving room for the gas to expand. When propane costs $5 a gallon, as it recently did, a 400-gallon fill cost $2,000. This past summer, when propane was selling for $1.58 a gallon on the reservation, the same fill would have cost $632, according to Floberg.Propane, a byproduct of natural gas processing and petroleum refining, is used mostly by people who live in rural areas that do not have natural gas service. It is used for cooking, heating homes and water, and powering clothes driers and fireplaces.Looking for ways to helpThe Episcopal Church’s involvement with the Sioux in what is now North Dakota and South Dakota began in the mid- to late-1800s after the 1862 Dakota uprising in neighboring Minnesota that resulted in the U.S. government deporting them to reservations in South Dakota. Just after the Civil War, the federal government offered land to various Christian denominations in exchange for their complicity in its effort to force Indians to assimilate into the white settlers’ culture through the federal government’s reservations system.The Episcopal Church helped to carry out that plan mainly east of the Missouri River. The 1871 General Convention created the Niobrara Missionary District, which included parts or all of what are now North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska.Today the church is present through a network of very small mission churches that are spread over vast expanses of land. It is uncommon for those missions to have electricity, water and indoor toilets, a situation that is also not uncommon for members’ homes.Episcopal Relief & Development is partnering with the Dakota dioceses and their network of churches on Standing Rock to help them minister this winter in a number of ways, according to Floberg and Katie Mears, director of the organization’s U.S. Disaster Preparedness and Response program.Floberg and the Rev. Robert Schwarz of St. James Episcopal Church in Mobridge, South Dakota in that diocese’s section of Standing Rock collaborated on the plan presented to the tribe, the dioceses and Episcopal Relief & Development.First, the church will work with the tribal government to assist tribal members who can’t afford propane. Second, it will be able to help some of the “most vulnerable” reservation residents who are ineligible for tribal assistance, Mears said, and those who, like the woman at the gas station, have the added burden of cold weather-related property damage.Because the impact of this crisis ripples out to other parts of people’s lives, the church will also work with food banks in both states to get shipments of food to distribute in local communities through the local congregations “because people have been making choices: food or propane,” Floberg said.The church also plans teach reservation residents about alternative-fuel heating as well as teach winterization and energy conservation skills at four, free church suppers across the reservation. The tribe will give the meat for those meals, said Floberg, and the entire community will be invited.Along these same lines, Floberg hopes to give $5,000 to a new effort called “Heating the Rez.” Chase Iron Eyes, an attorney who grew up on Standing Rock, is trying to organize 20 home pilot projects to receive multi-fuel stoves to reduce dependency on propane. According to Iron Eyes’ website, the effort has raised just more than $40,000 of the $50,000 needed. He is partnering with a number of organizations and plans to work with a Mandan, North Dakota, company that sells the stoves.“The point of the fundraising wasn’t to buy more ridiculously priced propane,” Iron Eyes told the Bismarck Tribune.Floberg said the church is eager to see the project begin as a way to demonstrate the need for more multi-fuel stoves, which he said will not totally replace propane-fueled furnaces but certainly reduce a home’s overall heating costs.Arenson Oil and Propane delivery driver Don Bedford fills up an empty propane tank in Sandwich, Illinois January 29. Midwest propane inventories had rebounded somewhat but were still below the five-year average, a government report said Feb. 12. While propane prices have declined, consumers are still struggling to pay for their tank fills. Photo: Reuters/Jeff HaynesOther help is coming to the reservation. The federal Department of Health and Human Services released $439 million nationwide for low-income heating assistance. North Dakota will get $3.4 million in the latest allocation and South Dakota $2.8 million. Of that amount, $1.3 million is earmarked for tribes in the two states.North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple said Feb. 10 that he had directed the state’s Department of Human Services to assist Standing Rock in assessing their potential need for additional Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program money.Tribal chair Dave Archambault told the Associated Press at the time that the money will be welcome but likely won’t be enough to bring Standing Rock’s program up to normal funding. The tribe’s LIHEAP program has only $1.5 million available this winter, down from $2.5 million last winter because of federal budget cuts.The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux tribe is giving Standing Rock and two other Northern Plains tribes a total of $870,000 to help them purchase propane for tribal members. Standing Rock will receive $500,000 from the Minnesota tribe that operates several businesses, including two casinos and a golf course.Floberg said the amount of money the church can commit to this work sometimes feels small compared to those efforts and “doesn’t feel like you are carrying the day,” but he knows making a difference in a few more families’ lives is better than not doing that. And, he said, the church wants to administer what it can give in the most efficient way possible “where we are working in partnership with the tribe who already has the infrastructure in place to be helping them out.”And then there are the churches themselves where decisions based on heat bills also have to be made. For instance, at Church of the Cross in Selfridge, North Dakota, “we said we didn’t have enough money to keep that place heated for worship so we went to a house church format for the winter,” he said.The St. Luke’s fellowship hall at Fort Yates is heated by a high-efficiency propane furnace but it has proved too expensive to keep going, so the congregation closed off the hall, keeping the temperature at 40 degrees. But, if the church needs to host a funeral and reception, it would take 18 “hard running hours” to heat it up, Floberg said.The rest of the church building is heated with dual-heat furnaces that can run on either propane or electricity. That choice was made when propane cost 58 cents a gallon, he said, and electricity was more expensive. They chose the dual option “just in case” and now “that just in case has really come into play.”Other than Wednesdays and Sunday, those furnaces are keeping the space heated to 50 degrees, according to Floberg. Raising the temperature to between 65 and 70 for three hours on Wednesdays for the soup kitchen has made that program “a lot more expensive to run,” he said.By contrast, the newly built St. James in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, has geothermal heat and its combined monthly electricity and heating bill is $200 a month, perhaps $125 more a month outside of the heating season. The building is kept at 70 degrees day and night.“I have never had the experience at any of our churches in all of the 20-plus years I have been out here of walking into a building and feeling immediately comfortable and warm,” Floberg said with a happy laugh.The church has offered St. James as an emergency shelter if needed “but we haven’t had to employ in that way,” he said.How did this crisis happen?Current high prices, distribution bottlenecks and, in some cases, outright shortages are being blamed on a vortex of circumstances that began circling the country last fall.The National Propane Gas Association has said the shortages began in part when abundant grain crops were harvested throughout the Upper Midwest almost simultaneously last fall. Ordinarily, the harvest progresses in stages through the region but in late 2013, the harvest happened at the same time over a wide area. What the association called “massive amounts” of propane were used to dry the large, wet crop prior to storage. That demand reduced propane inventories throughout the area.At the same time, the Cochin pipeline, which provided 40% of the product used by Minnesota suppliers, was shut down for repairs. The shutdown forced those suppliers to go to other states for propane, pinching the market.Just as the harvest demand settled out, massive snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures began to hit most of the county and demand for heating fuel soared. The average number of heating degree days (a calculation of the deviation in temperature from an average day from 65 degrees) this winter have been more than 10 percent higher than last season, according to the propane association. The group said the U.S. Department of Energy reported that cold weather led to record-high natural gas and propane storage withdrawals. These were the largest drawdowns in the 20-year history of the survey and the second time so far in 2014 the record has been broken.Add to that the fact that in 2013 more than 20 percent of U.S. propane was exported, up from 5 percent in 2008, according to the association. Thus, while Jeff Petrash, the general counsel for the propane industry group, said propane production increased to an estimated 17.8 billion gallons in 2013, from 15.2 billion gallons in 2008, he acknowledged that an estimated 4.3 billion gallons of propane were exported last year, compared to 800 million gallons in 2008.The Energy Information Administration said Feb. 5 that U.S. propane stocks totaled 30.8 million barrels, nearly 45 percent lower than a year ago, USA Today reported). And the EIA, the U.D. Department of Energy’s statistical arm, said Feb. 12 that Midwest propane inventories had rebounded somewhat but were still below the five-year average.The propane industry group also blamed adequate propane storage locations in the Northeast, saying that had propane been stored there, it could have been moved to the areas of the country facing a crisis. However, it said, the industry had faced opposition in some areas to adding storage capacity, which is generally underground.Yet, storing enough propane to weather all of these factors combined is not efficient. “You don’t design church for Easter Sunday,” Clifton Linton, a natural gas liquids specialist at the Oil Price Information Service told the New York Times. “Well, guess what happened this year? In the Midwest, it was a double Easter Sunday.”Finally, the propane distribution system relies heavily on trains and trucks to get emergency supplies from pipeline terminals to states across the Midwest, Northeast and Southeast. However, the propane association said, rail cars and trucks that used to be in the distribution chain have been diverted to take away the huge amount of crude oil being on the Bakken shale formation. The Bakken boom has also caused what the association called “a dramatic change in energy flows across North American” to which the natural gas and petroleum products pipeline network has not yet adapted.Ironically, the rush to pull oil out of the Bakken, 300 miles northwest of Fort Yates, means North Dakota has a glut of natural gas. The gas is released at the wellhead but lax gas-capture regulations now lead to 30 percent of the gas being burned off as waste.In an effort to move propane to areas where it is needed, the U.S. Department of Transportation has issued emergency orders suspending the limits on the amount of time truck drivers can spend on the road for 10 Midwestern states and 12 Northeastern states. In many cases those orders mirrored actions taken by state governors.On Feb. 12 Midwest retail residential prices for propane ranged from $2.99 a gallon (excluding tax) in Nebraska to $4.04 in Indiana. The price was $3.28 in North Dakota and $3.41 in South Dakota. That is down from this year’s high thus far of $4.57 in North Dakota and $4.12 in South Dakota on Jan. 27. In early February 2013, the per-gallon price for propane in the Midwest was $2.306, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.Although North Dakota’s total energy consumption is among the lowest in the nation due to its small population, according to the Energy Information Administration,  the state’s high heating demand in winter means it ranks fourth in the country in per-capita consumption (measured in BTUs). South Dakota ranks eighth.The Energy Information Administration data shows that North Dakotans use almost twice as much propane (867 gallons each year) as the U.S. national average (464 gallons per year). And, while propane in North Dakota cost less than the national average during the 2012-2013 winter, North Dakotan households $1,280 that years on propane for heating compared with $957 per U.S. households overall.And Floberg has a warning.“No matter what the groundhog says, there’s more than six weeks of winter left in the Dakotas,” he said. “We’re not out of this brutal heating season until at least the middle of March; so another month of sub-zero weather … and we’re not out of the snow until the middle of April in terms of the likelihood of snowstorms. We’ve still got a long run ahead of us.”— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The 38 social housing units at 10/12 rue Bonnet in the city of Clichy-la-Garenne completed for Efidis (social housing landlord) are located at the doorstep of Paris, along the périphérique beltway. At the edge of the capital and its inner suburbs, they look towards both the Clichy-Batignolles district and the new high court designed by Renzo Piano, and the greater Paris area. Inside and out, they embody the metropolitan issue of eliminating borders. The architects seem to have set a roadmap to relay the dynamism that characterizes the urban development zone of Batignolles in a disparate environment. It is this double relationship with the city dictating the physiognomy of the building that seems to transcend the limits of the périphérique to connect two different urbanities towards a common future.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe multifamily-housing building sets a unique standard of a new neighborhood, which will mark the threshold of Clichy-la-Garenne, the aptly named urban developement zone of “entrance of the city”. Constructions can climb up to 10 stories allowing the building to overlook a large part of its surroundings. Through this emergence it approaches Paris and its attempts of achieving great heights. The southeast facade on perforated metal vibrates with its and echoes the activity of the city and the speed of the périphérique.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraLocated on the elbow of Bonnet street, the building takes part to the composite fabric of Clichy-la-Garenne, starting by its street and its numerous buildings in brick of varied color, which emerged over time. To begin this dialogue, the northwest and southwest facades feature a dark red ‘Lucca’ brick full with vivid joints which, in addition to giving its name to the residence, signs the resolutely contemporary look of the building.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraTo render this brick facade even more vibrant, an array of ornamentation connects two expressions of the city, that of the capital and that of the suburbs. A motif in Art deco tones, two crossing diamonds, originates from the overhanging and recessing of brick headers on one side, and through large- scale metal perforations on the other.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraOn the ground floor facing the street,
the facade alternates large spans of brick with glass-covered surfaces such as the entrance and the commercial space. The moucharabiehs, attained from the spacing between bricks, roam to create intimate spaces or ventilate premises with a transparency that only allows to glance in from certain angles. The hall, in turn, acts as transition between the exterior and the interior by allowing to view from the sidewalk into the garden at the heart of the lot.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe units also entertain this ambiguity of rapport to the gigantism of the city or the intimacy of their street by opening to the heart of the lot through balconies and loggias, which hide behind the perforated metal, or through loggias cut into the brick facing the street. Each apartment has at least a double exposure: by multiplying the exposure of each unit the project transforms the natural light contributions in order to connect the interior with its environment. This also multiplies the viewpoints on an ever-changing city that builds upon itself and extends its borders to regenerate its identity.Project gallerySee allShow lessNever Built New YorkArchitecture BooksPlanning for Conservation: Looking at AgraArchitecture BooksProject locationAddress:12 Rue Bonnet, 92110 Clichy, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

David Stevens Announces Retirement After 6 Years Helming the MBA

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago President and CEO of the Mortgage Banker’s Association (MBA) David H. Stevens has set his retirement date for September 30, 2018. Stevens will continue to lead the MBA until that time as a diverse and recently formed MBA member search committee identifies new candidates for the role.”With my cancer in remission, focusing on family, friends and staying healthy is my priority,” Stevens said in a statement. “This was a difficult decision; it’s hard to walk away from supporting an industry that shaped my career. It’s been an honor to work with the talented staff, strong leadership and diverse membership of the MBA.”Under Stevens’ rebranding, the association’s membership growth surpassed expectations over consecutive years and his leadership restored the MBA to financial-health.”I’d like to applaud Dave for his years of dedicated service to the industry and wish him nothing but health and success in the years to come,” said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. “We look forward to continuing to work together with the MBA and other industry trade associations on our shared purpose of strengthening of the industry and homeownership.””We all support Dave in his decision,” said David Motley, 2018 MBA Chairman. “MBA has never been stronger and is well positioned to manage this transition. Dave has given his heart and soul to MBA for nearly seven years and on behalf of the entire membership, we are incredibly grateful for his leadership.”In 2011 Stevens, was an essential part of creating the MBA Open Doors Foundation, founded to help families with critically-ill children. Five years later, Stevens was diagnosed with cancer.Immediate past MBA chairman Rodrigo Lopez is currently head of the search committee, which makes up 12 volunteer MBA members.Editor’s Note: A previous version of this story indicated that Stevens would be stepping down effective September 30, 2017. In fact, his resignation is effective September 30, 2018. We apologize for the error.

M. Subramaniam was hearing the bail application of two petitioners, who were arrested and remanded to judicial custody for the offences punishable under Sections 379 of IPC on the file of the respondent police.Arguments put forthThe Counsel for the petitioners stated before the Court that during the pandemic situation, the petitioners were unemployed and the police foisted a false case against the petitioners, in view of the fact that the petitioners were wandering to secure job.The Government Advocate opposed bail applications by stating that the petitioners involved in the crime and they stole five two-wheelers during the month of August and September 2020. Thus, five cases were registered against the petitioners. All the stolen vehicles were recovered and investigation has been completed in the instant case.Court’s observationsThe Court was of the considered opinion that protection of life and personal liberty is ensured under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The Court opined that Protection of life includes a decent life which is contemplated under Article 21.The Court further noted,”Right to life under Article 21 of the Constitution of India is not a mere animal life and it is a decent life which is to be preserved.”Regarding the instant case, the Court noted that the first petitioner was working as a Hotel server and due to the closure of business, he would have probably involved in the crime of committing theft. However, the Court observed that the facts are to be established during the course of the trial.Further, the Court said,”Considering the probable circumstances, and the problems of unemployment, which are the dominating factors to be considered for grant of bail in such cases, keeping this kind of persons inside the jail for a longer duration would be detrimental not only to the individual, but also to the society at large.”The Court also opined that because of COVID-19 many persons are suffering and the agony is unexplainable. In these circumstances, the Court was of the considered opinion that the petitioners could be released on bail.Accordingly, the petitioners were ordered to be released on bail on their executing a bond for a sum of Rs.10,000/- (Rupees Ten Thousand only) each with two blood sureties each for a like sum to the satisfaction of the learned Judicial Magistrate.Case title – Deepak and another v.

An updated seabed bathymetry beneath Larsen C Ice Shelf, Antarctic Peninsula

first_imgIn recent decades, rapid ice-shelf disintegration along the Antarctic Peninsula has had a global impact through enhancing outlet glacier flow, and hence sea level rise, and the freshening of Antarctic Bottom Water. Ice shelf thinning due to basal melting results from the circulation of relatively warm water in the underlying ocean cavity. However, the effect of sub-shelf circulation on future ice-shelf stability cannot be predicted accurately with computer simulations if the geometry of the ice-shelf cavity is unknown. To address this deficit for Larsen C Ice Shelf, west Antarctica, we integrate new water-column thickness measurements with existing observations. We present these new data here along with an updated bathymetry grid of the ocean cavity. Key findings include relatively deep seabed to the south-east of the Kenyon Peninsula, along the grounding line and around the key ice shelf pinning point of Bawden Ice Rise. In addition, we can confirm that the cavity’s southern trough stretches from Mobiloil Inlet to the open ocean. These areas of deep seabed will influence ocean circulation and tidal mixing, and will therefore affect the basal-melt distribution. These results will help constrain models of ice-shelf cavity circulation with the aim of improving our understanding of sub-shelf processes and their potential influence on ice shelf stability. The data set comprises all point measurements of seabed depth and a gridded data product, derived using additional measurements of both offshore seabed depth and the thickness of grounded ice. We present all new depth measurements here as well as a compilation of previously published measurements used in the gridding process. The gridded data product is included in the supplementary material.last_img read more
