I recently found some obsidian rocks in a Mattapoisett, MA woods. They are a very shiny black color with gold inclusions. Extremely hard, and shiny. Thought they were a hard coal but would not burn. Retains heat a long time. Is that an indication of volcanic activity at one time? Lots of iron chunks nearby and buried.

Does it snow much in Boston MA in March?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It really varies; being in close proximity to the ocean, Boston's weather is very changeable. The city has certainly received large amounts of snow at certain times, such as the Blizzard of 1978 that paralyzed the city with nearly three feet of snow. But blizzards and extreme storms are not typical of Boston at all. In fact, most of the bigger storms tend to stay in the central and western part of the state, or go to the north of Boston.

Over the past several years, weather patterns went from one extreme to another-- in January 2011, the area received 38 inches of snow from a series of storms; but by late 2011, there was hardly any snow at all, much to the chagrin of ski-lodges; in fact, temperatures were unseasonably warm from September to December. So, while there have been months when Boston received 20-30" of snow, there were also months when hardly a dusting of snow was seen. If you are traveling to Boston, check the weather reports before you make the trip-- you may find plenty of snow, or you may find none at all.

How deep is the Charles River?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Its deepens on which part. Now there is not a lot of info in the web about the water depth. It is a 80 mile river that has a lot of dams to control flooding. I estimate that at the deepest point it would be about 40 to 50 feet towrds Boston and past the waltham dam area it would be around 20 to 30 feet at the max then further west it would be no more then ten feet at the max.

What is the coldest temperature ever achieved?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

That would be absolute zero: 0 Kelvin or -273.15 Celsius. At close to absolute zero many interesting phenomena occur, i.e. atoms stop vibrating, substance combine to a super mass, electrons are no longer active in bonding (molecules are held together by merely London dispersion forces).

This is all theoretical. Absolute 0 has never been achieved by man. Some scientist think it may be impossible here on earth due to the fact that heat from the earth will always permeate even the thickest insulation. That being the case the coldest man has ever achieved is 4 Kelvin, or - 269.15 Celsius, or - 452.47 Fahrenheit. When trying to go colder than that the object being cooled would literally shatter into millions of pieces!

In an attempt to reach absolute zero, a piece of rhodium metal was super cooled to 100 picokelvin (1/10000000000 Kelvin) in 1999. That is the coldest temperature achieved by scientific means. The coldest natural temperature ever recorded was -89.2 OC in Antarctica 1983.

What was the coldest temperature ever recorded in Oklahoma?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

On the morning of February 10, 2011, a mesonet station in Nowata (northeastern part of the state) dropped to 31 below zero, setting a new record for the state. This was due to a perfect set of conditions, including a fresh layer of snow, clear skies, and calm winds, and of course an airmass straight from the Arctic that was centered over this specific area. This record is pending verification from the NCDC. Until then, the record remains:

27 below zero in 1905 at Vinita, and in 1935 at Watts.

Why has Jeremy Wolfenden been in news recently?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This year (2007) was the 40th anniversary of the partial decriminalization of male homosexuality in Britain. Thus much attention has been given -- in essays, reports, and even TV dramas -- to the Wolfenden Commission (chaired by Jeremy's father) and the Wolfenden Report that the commission issued. It was this Home Office report that recommended decriminalization.

Lord Wolfenden's gay son, Jeremy, was a major figure in a 2007 BBC docudrama about the Wolfenden Commission titled "Consenting Adults," and has been mentioned in some news coverage of the anniversary.
