The Antarctic magnetic anomaly map compiled marine and airborne surveys collected south of 60 degrees S through 1999 and used Magsat data to help fill in the regional gaps between the surveys. Orsted and CHAMP satellite magnetic observations with greatly improved measurement accuracies and temporal and spatial coverage of the Antarctic, have now supplanted the Magsat data. We combined the new satellite observations with the near-surface survey data for an improved magnetic anomaly map of the Antarctic lithosphere. Specifically, we separated the crustal from the core and external field components in the satellite data using crustal thickness variations estimated from the terrain and the satellite-derived free-air gravity observations. Regional gaps in the near-surface surveys were then filled with predictions from crustal magnetization models that jointly satisfied the near-surface and satellite crustal anomalies. Comparisons in some of the regional gaps that also considered newly acquired aeromagnetic data demonstrated the enhanced anomaly estimation capabilities of the predictions over those from conventional minimum curvature and spherical harmonic geomagnetic field models. We also noted that the growing number of regional and world magnetic survey compilations involve coverage gaps where these procedures can contribute effective near-surface crustal anomaly estimates.
Thursday’s football game against the University of Arizona Wildcats marks the first non-bowl game to be held on a Thursday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and with it will bring new gameday procedures.The reason behind the schedule change this year is because USC is required to host a Thursday night game twice every three years as a member of the Pac-12 Conference, USC Associate Athletic Director Jose Eskenazi said.“It’s a mandated thing from the conference,” Eskenazi said. “It’s obviously not our preference to host a Thursday night game, but we have to do it, and were excited to do it in the sense that we’ll tackle it head-on and hopefully it’ll be a great game experience for all those that attend.”For the Thursday night game, no on-campus parking for the game or on-campus tailgating will be allowed.Captain David Carlisle said the university made the decision to ban campus activities to ensure that academics on campus will not be interrupted.“This being the first Thursday night game ever for USC, it’s going to be a challenge in that there will be no tailgating allowed on campus,” Carlisle said. “That is a decision that the university has made because it is going to be considered a normal academic day.”Since no on-campus parking will be available to those attending the game, other options will be made available.“Parking will be available down in L.A. Live and several lots will be open that folks can park there, and there will be a shuttle service to and from the Coliseum,” Eskenazi said.Tailgating opportunities have also been added at the Galen Center and the Coliseum.“To make up for the lack of tailgating on campus, the Galen Center will have an open tailgate that you can walk up to and pay to attend, and also the Cardinal and Gold Picnic at the Coliseum has opened up spaces for the general public,” Eskenazi said.Thursday classes will be held on their regular schedules.“Some schools cancel classes if they host a weekday football game,” Eskenazi said. “At USC, it was the administration’s decision not to do that. USC is an academic institution first and foremost, so classes are regularly scheduled and all ongoing regular campus activities will go on.”Both DPS and the Athletic Department have been preparing for months to make sure that the night goes smoothly.“We’ve been planning this for a good eight to nine months,” Eskenazi said. “It all started with getting all groups on campus together to talk about what the plans should be and what the communications would be, and making sure we adhere to the university policy that classes would still be in session and find alternatives for people to be able to attend the game.”Gian Johl, a graduate student studying business administration who plans to attend the game, said that his midterm was rescheduled as a result of the football game.“The class voted to take the midterm early because of logistics,” Johl said.Ronan Young, a freshman majoring in business administration who regularly attends USC football games, said he thinks the Thursday night date will negatively affect student attendance.“I feel like the student attendance won’t quite be the same because a lot of people that would say, go on a Saturday because it’s the only thing to do, now have work to do or schoolwork to do, and now they’re going to choose not to go,” Young said.Sean Lee, an undecided freshman who is choosing not to go to the game, also believes the date will hinder attendance.“I have the student section tickets, but I’m selling mine because I can’t make it,” Lee said. “I have a 9 a.m. class and a lot of stuff going on Friday.”Others students, however, said that the usual schedule will not stop them from going to the game.“I will definitely be attending,” said Paul Samaha, a freshman majoring in public relations. “Most people I know are still going.”The Athletic Department said they are aware of the effect that the new date could have on game attendance.“Everyone is used to it being on a Saturday so it’s a change-up from the traditional college football attending experience,” Eskenazi said. “Obviously work and school schedules will affect your ability to attend.”Nevertheless, the department is excited for this new opportunity.“It’s the first time we’ve had this sort of ‘week night under the lights’ kind of game,” Eskenazi said. “Coach [Orgeron] is pretty excited about it and he really wants the students’ support, sort of this renewed energy of the team with his leadership. I think it could be a pretty fun deal for students.”
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error MEMPHIS — Even though the games have not been going the Lakers’ way, people are noticing a positive change for Brandon Ingram.The third-year forward scored a team-high 32 points in the 110-105 loss to Memphis on Monday night, continuing a tear that’s been going since he returned from All-Star break. Over his past three games, Ingram has scored 88 points, and he was nearly unguardable against the Grizzlies while shooting 12 for 18 from the field.“He’s just been in a zone,” LeBron James said. “And whatever it is, he needs to stay there.”The Lakers have been hopeful for this upward slope for Ingram, who they’ve long valued as a potentially lethal scorer. Adding to his midrange game against the Grizzlies, Ingram hit three 3-pointers, defying some criticism of his lack of attempts from deep range.

But Coach Luke Walton said he’s seen this coming for some time now.“You start to become more consistent, and it just comes with experience and time,” he said. “There’s not really a way to speed that up. It’s different for everybody, but it seems like he’s in a pretty good groove right now.”MUSCALA RETURNSAfter three games on the shelf with a sprained ankle, Mike Muscala finally returned to action for just the second appearance since the Lakers traded for him. The sixth-year big man had three points, a rebound and two blocked shots in 11 minutes of play.Related Articles The Lakers originally traded for Muscala as a floor-spacer for the playoff push, but after turning his ankle in his Lakers debut against Philadelphia on Feb. 10, he hasn’t been able to play much. It hasn’t helped the optics of the deal that Ivica Zubac, the main piece the Lakers gave up in the deal, has been the Clippers’ starting center and playing well in their rotation.Walton said while Muscala was technically available Saturday against New Orleans, the Lakers training staff advised him that rest might be helpful for him. When the Lakers arrived in Memphis, Walton saw enough to be assured that Muscala would be able to play. “We had an optional gym time yesterday that he was at and watched him move around and play one-on-one, two-on-two, and he looked good,” Walton said before the game. “So we’ll get him out there tonight.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers
