Iceland: ridge, plume and basalt
Why is Iceland the fastest growing island in the North Atlantic? Why is Iceland on dry land? Dr Dave McGarvie takes us on a geographically complex field trip to discover Iceland's new land. McGarvie explains how different types of basalts eruptions help build the crust of Iceland. This material forms part of The Open University course S339, Understanding the continents.Author(s): The iTunes U team

Duke University Students Digitally Document Ancient Tomb
Students in the Duke in Tuscany program (Duke University) were at an archaeological site this month in Italy's Vulci Naturalistic Park when local archaeologists discovered a rare ancient and intact Etruscan tomb. The find allowed the students to use the digital documentation skills they were learning from Duke Professor Maurizio Forte. The result was a 3D model of the burial site, which Forte believes is the first such model of an Etruscan tomb. Read more at http://today.duke.edu/2014/06/etrusc

Balancing AO Principles in Calcaneus Fractures
The calcaneus, also known as the heel bone, is responsible for transmitting the majority of the body's weight from the talus bone to the ground. Nearly every aspect of the management of complex calcaneus fractures is controversial. The anatomy of the calcaneus is complicated and treatment of fractures in this bone requires a comprehensive understanding of its anatomy, common fracture patterns, and displacement. An accurate reduction is essential to good patient outcomes. Treatment options inclu

7.3.5 Ion beam deposition

PVD still has some limitations, however. It must operate in a gaseous atmosphere (to provide the plasma) so is not well suited to the long-throw, directional line-of-sight mode accessible to low-pressure evaporation. Also, if magnets behind the target are used to generate a magnetic field for magnetron sputtering the technique cannot be easily used to deposit magnetic metals such as nickel and cobalt, owing to the influence from the magnetic field on the deposition process.
