Dacelo tyro Kookaburras are very large terrestrial kingfishers native to Australia and New Guinea. Kookaburras are best known for their unmistakable call which is uncannily like loud, echoing human laughter — good-natured if rather hysterical merriment in the case of the well-known Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae), maniacial, almost insane cackling in the case of the slightly smaller Blue-winged Kookaburra (Dacelo leachii). Kookaburras occupy woodland territories in loose family groups, and their laughter serves the same purpose as a great many other bird calls: to demarcate territorial borders. It can be heard at any time of day but most frequently shortly after dawn, and especially when the colour drains from the forest after sunset. One bird starts with a low, hiccupping chuckle, then throws its head back in raucous laughter: often several others join in. If a rival tribe is within earshot and replies, the whole family soon gathers to fill the bush with ringing laughter. Hearing kookaburras in full voice is one of the most extraordinary experiences of the Australian bush, something even locals cannot ignore, and that visitors, unless forewarned, can be quite terrified by. Kookaburras hunt much as other kingfishers (or indeed Petroicidae) do: by perching on a convenient branch or wire and waiting patiently for prey to pass by: mouse and similar-sized small mammals, large insects, lizards, small birds and nestlings, and most famously, snakes. Small prey are preferred, but kookaburras not infrequently take surprisingly large creatures, including venomous snakes a good deal longer than the bird itself. The Laughing Kookaburra is a handsome, stocky bird of about 45 cm in length, with a large head, a prominent brown eye, and a very large bill. It is found throughout eastern Australia, and have been introduced into the south-west corner of Western Australia, Tasmania, Flinders Island, Kangaroo Island, and New Zealand. The Blue-winged Kookaburra is a little smaller at around 40 cm long, has a light-coloured eye, no dark eye-mask, and many more blue wing feathers. It is restricted to southern New Guinea and the moister parts of northern Australia, from southern Queensland across the Top End, and as far down the Western Australian coast as the Shark Bay area.

Blue-winged Kookaburra.
Unusually for close relatives, the acrobat reader downloadLaughing and Blue-winged species are direct competitors in the area where their adobe acrobat downloadranges overlap. This adobe acrobat downloadsuggests that the two species, though having common stock, evolved in isolation (possibly during a period when Australia and New Guinea were more distant — see Australia-New Guinea) and were only brought back free adobe acrobatinto contact in relatively recent geological times. acrobat reader free downloadThe Rufous-bellied Kookaburra adobe acrobat reader free download(Dacelo gaudichaud) is unusual in that it occupies dense rainforests (as opposed to the open country preferred by other kookaburras) and does not live in family groups but in pairs. A white-billed bird with a black cap, blue-tinged wings, and a pale rufous belly and tail feathers, it is widely distributed through the lowland forests of lowland New Guinea. The little known but spectacular Spangled Kookaburra (Dacelo tyro) is found only on the Aru Islands and the savannahs of southern New Guinea. It has bright blue wings and tail, a white chest and sigiwaldbjffbelly, dark eyes, and a striking marlyssajbotwhite-spotted black head. Practically nothing is known of its family life or breeding biology.

Quasi biennial oscillation



The QBO (quasi-biennial oscillation) is a quasi-periodic oscillation of the equatorial zonal (Earth sciences) wind between easterlies and westerlies in the tropical stratosphere with a mean period of 28 months. The alternating wind regimes develop at the top of the lower stratosphere and propagate downwards at about 1 km per month until they are dissipated at the tropical tropopause. Downward motion of the easterlies is usually more irregular than that of the westerlies. The amplitude of the easterly phase is about twice as strong as that of the westerly phase. At the top of the vertical QBO range, easterlies dominate, while at the bottom, westerlies are more likely to be found.

Theory

The QBO was discovered in the acrobat reader1950s, but its origin remained unclear for some time. Rawinsonde soundings showed that its phase was not related to the annual cycle, as is the case for all other stratospheric circulation patterns. adobe acrobat 70In the 1970s it was recognized that the periodic wind change was driven by atmospheric waves emanating from acrobat distillerthe tropical troposphere that travel upwards and are dissipated in the stratosphere by radiative cooling. The precise nature of the waves responsible for this effect was heavily debated, in recent years however Gravitational adobe acrobat readerradiations have come to be seen as a major contributor.

Effects

Effects of the QBO include mixing of stratospheric ozone by the secondary circulation caused by adobe acrobat readerthe QBO, modification of monsoon precipitation, and an influence on stratospheric circulation in northern hemisphere winter (the sudden stratospheric warmings).
