So it's no wonder why the Russians power their icebreakers with nuclear reactors. His loss was regretted by all who knew and had learnt to admire his amiable qualities and gallant behaviour. The gallant Frobisher continued his voyage towards the northwest in the " Gabriel " alone, although his mast was sprung, his topmast blown overboard, and his " mizei-mast " had had to be cut away in a gale. But it was in vain to attempt fixing his attention on critical distinctions of philology, upon the difference of idiom, the beauty of felicitous expression, or the artificial combinations of syntax. ``I can read and understand a Latin author,'' said young Edward, with the self-confidence and rash reasoning of fifteen, ``and Scaliger or Bentley could not do much more.'' Alas! while he was thus permitted to read only for the gratification of his amusement, he foresaw not that he was losing for ever the opportunity of acquiring habits of firm and assiduous application, of gaining the art of controlling, directing, and concentrating the powers of his mind for earnest investigation,---an art far more essential than even that intimate acquaintance with classical learning, which is the primary object of study.

Familiar acquaintance with the specious miracles of fiction brought with it some degree of satiety, and I began, by degrees, to seek in histories, memoirs, voyages and travels, and the like, events nearly as wonderful as those which were the work of imagination, with the additional advantage that they were at least in a great measure true. John Leyden has beautifully introduced the tradition in his Scenes of Infancy:--- Mysterious Rhymer, doomed by fate's decree, Still to revisit Eildon's fated tree; Where oft the swain, at dawn of Hallow-day, Hears thy fleet barb with wild impatience neigh Say who is he, with summons long and high, Shall bid the charmed sleep of ages fly, Roll the long sound through Eildon's caverns vast, While each dark warrior kindles at the blast?

Generally, polar plants are small and grow low to the ground. Nares, leader of the future expedition of 1874-1875, was also on board the " Resolute." The large-scale polarized emission allows a detailed investigation of the magnetic field geometry in the solar neighborhood, which reveals unexpected and intricate filamentary structures, where the magnetic field changes orientation abruptly, tracing discontinuities at edges of magnetic domains with more homogeneous properties.

Many species, such as the giant Antarctic isopod (Glyptonotus antarcticus), are unusual in being particularly large compared to their relatives in other parts of the world (1). Take a journey through this site and begin discovering Antarctica for yourself. As an apex predator at the top of the food web, polar bears can signal that there are problems in the Arctic marine ecosystem. Lancaster Sound and Jones Sound were named after other promoters and friends of the voyage. But it was left to the Scotia to carry on more extensively than any other Antarctic expedi- tion has ever done marine biological research, and also to carry on that research in very deep water well south of the Antarctic Circle.

There are several ANIMAL LIFE 133 species, notably the Greenland seal (Phoca grcenlandica), the Bearded seal or square flipper (P. barbata), the Ringed seal (P. hispidd), the Floe-rat (P. fcetida), the Hooded or bladder-nosed seal (Cystophora cristatd). While the saltwater that makes up these oceans does not usually freeze, the air is so cold adjacent to the continent that even the salt and currents cannot keep the water from freezing.

They find that greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane are uniquely shaped to catch and pass on infrared radiation, and so they are responsible for the warmth we enjoy on Earth. In ] 644 the Cossack Michael Staduchin formed a winter establishment on the delta of the Kolyma, which has since expanded into the town of Nijnei Kolymsk; and this adventurer was the first who got intelligence of the warlike TcJiuktchi, who inhabit the north-eastern corner of Siberia, and who resisted the imposition of yassah with bravery and successful pertinacity.
