In the News (Sun 21 Jul 19)

  
  Pseudokarst on Mars: the evolution of the Hephaestus Fossae and Hebrus Vallis Systems, Utopia Basin
Hebrus Vallis is to the north east and the Hephaestus Fossae is to the south west (Fig 1).
We use high resolution MOC, THEMIS and MOLA data sets to determine the discharge regime, describe the range of associated geomorphic landforms, and in particular to establish the likely triggers for both the surface collapse and the release of water at the surface.
We hypothesize that the evolution of Hephaestus Fossae and Hebrus Vallis involved a strong component of pseudokarst.

Neobule, despite her fascination with Hebrus, cannot break free of the restrictions placed on young girls: she is able neither to indulge in love-play (3.12.1) nor to use wine to forget her cares (dulci mala vino lavere, 3.12.1-2).
Hebrus is named for a river; for this reason, and because of his proximity to Cupid in the ode's second stanza, we should view him purely as an embodiment of male sexuality.
If, instead of allowing Hebrus to define the world of this ode, we focus on Neobule's experience of her world, we find that 3.12 unquestionably describes the beginnings of a girl's transition into adulthood.

 Thrace - LoveToKnow 1911
The most distinguishing features of the country were the chain of Rhodope (Despoto-dagh) and the river Hebrus (Maritza).
The Hebrus, together with its tributaries which flow into it from the north, east and west, drains almost the whole of Thrace.
The greater part of the country is hilly and irregular, though there are considerable plains; but besides Rhodope two other tolerably definite chains intersect it, one of which descends from Haemus to Adrianople, while the other follows the coast of the Euxine at no great distance inland.

 Naval History of Great Britain by William James   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
At 2 P. the Hebrus lost sight of the Hannibal and Sultane, and at 5 P. of the Sparrow ; and the Etoile then bore from her south-east by east, distant three miles.
This fire the Hebrus quickly returned within pistol-shot distance, running athwart the stern of the Etoile, to get between her and the shore ; and that so closely, that her jib-boom passed over the French ship's taffrail.
The Hebrus was now in eight fathoms' water, and the land within musketshot on her starboard beam.

 Ulanders C. H.
An industrious farmer, Hebrus McHenry from Ohio, to speed the collection of his fall harvest, created The Ulanders Harvest Challenge.
Hebrus was soon making several dozen out of his barn and selling them for an affordable price to his neighbors.
A group of farmers against the apparently “hideous, insidious, unnatural, Hell-born contraption” were scared by the effectiveness of the robot and most were burned.

 The Second Capital of Ottoman Empire,Edirne
The Apsinti, east of Ainos, the Drugeri in the central region of the Hebrus, the Tyns in Salmydessos and the Kalopothaks were some of the Thracian tribes who inhabited the region stretching from Ainos to the Kallipolis (Gallipoli) peninsula.

Odrysai lay in the fork at the confluence of the Hebrus and the Tonzos, and was a centre of commerce.

 Horace ODES 3,12
In the foreground, through the eye of the camera, we still see Neobule as she watches, her wheel spinning endlessly, while outside at a distance, as in vignette, this handsome lad Hebrus exercises.
Hebrus is standing poised before the thicket, also waiting.
With one brilliant visual stroke Horace conducts us swiftly from a woman's static world, in which the only movement is the motion of the spinning wheel, by way of a young man's hyper-athletic arena of frenzied activity, a to the total immobility of a hunter watching a boar invisible in the bushes.

Today's images from Mars include: Layers and Streaks and Hebrus Vallis (Released 3 December 2004), from the Mars Global Surveyor and 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecrafts.
The criss-crossing of channels seen in the image is not typical for fluvial systems, indicating that this channel system was likely formed by volcanic activity.
The name "2001 Mars Odyssey" was selected as a tribute to the vision and spirit of space exploration as embodied in the works of renowned science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke.

 Gordon's Water Striders and Pond Skaters Page
They live in a number of different habitats in the tropics but always tend to be associated with the water's edge, though some live in quiet pools others live in the splash zone of water falls and on rocks in the middle of fast flowing streams and rivers.
Little is known about them as they tend to live secretive lives, but we do know that they lay their eggs in a gelatinous mass at the water's edge and that Hebrus ruficeps can survive winter frozen in the ice at the water suface.
Water Measurers or Marsh Treaders are much more common than the two groups I have just mentioned they range from 2.7 to 22 mm long and there are 112 species known in the world, of which two occur in the UK.
