, but the lake ultimately drained through a notch eroded in the northeast rim. The prehistoric lake attained a maximum depth of about 150 m (500 ft) and the upper surface reached an elevation of about 475 m (1560 ft), at which point it overtopped the low point of the caldera rim. Small, shallow remnants of the lake remained north of Cone D at an altitude of about 1075 feet: a small shallow lake located between the caldera rim and Cone D; a smaller lake (named Cone B Lake) farther north near the caldera's gate. After the 2008 eruption, the hydrogeology of the caldera was greatly changed with five separate sizable lakes now emplaced. In addition to the caldera lakes, Cone A, Cone E, Cone G and the new 2008 vent on Cone D contain small crater lakes. left 300px Okmok Caledra thumb (File:Okmok Caldera.png) prominence location Umnak, Alaska, USA (Alaska) range Aleutian Range ''Union'' spent the month of January 1956 participating in Operation "Cowealex" which called for a landing on Umnak Island in the Aleutians (Aleutian Islands). Rough weather necessitated changing the landing site to Unalaska Island in Makuskin Bay. The ship returned to San Diego on 9 February and conducted local operations. ''Union'' then left California en route to Pearl Harbor to participate in a landing exercise, "Hawrltlex 1-56" which concluded on 11 April. She arrived at San Diego on 23 April and spent the months until November taking part in local operations and undergoing upkeep. Late in August, ''Union'' made a brief trip to Vancouver, British Columbia, to represent the United States Navy in the Pacific National Exhibit. On 13 November 1956, the ship sailed for San Francisco and an overhaul at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard at Hunters Point (Bayview-Hunters Point, San Francisco, California). History The airport was constructed during World War II as '''Fort Randall Army Airfield''' during the military buildup of Alaska in secret beginning in 1941. Disguised as civilian employees of the Blair Canning and Packing Company, Army personnel in civilian clothes were shipped to Cold Bay. Although construction began in December 1941, the airfield was ready for operation by March 1942. Because of the foresight of Alaska's military commanders, the new airfield, along with another new secret airfield Cape Field (Cape Field at Fort Glenn) at Umnak, was ready to contribute during the Battle of Dutch Harbor in June 1942. The airfield at Cold Bay would continue to contribute throughout the war.
New deadlines for information requests from the ICC were also missed. A brief filed by the Office of Public Counsel for the Defence on behalf of Gaddafi claimed that "there is no basis for asserting that the ICC should defer the case to Libya". http: www.icc-cpi.int iccdocs doc doc1326934.pdf page 4 The brief requested the court to order Libya to immediately implement Gaddafi's rights, and report Libya to the Security Council if it does not. Small, 4-unit vehicles were built and tested in Shaba North, Zaire and Seba (Sabha, Libya) Oasis, Libya, where heights of 20 to 50 kilometers were reached. The rockets used there were 6 and 12 meters long. The basic CRPU concept was shown to be workable, though some rockets experienced guidance or component failures. The last launch of an OTRAG rocket took place on September 19, 1983 in Esrange. Following this launch, the OTRAG rocket was to be used in high altitude research. In 1979 OTRAG stopped launching rockets from Shaba North for political reasons. Its launching activities were later moved to Sabha (Sabha, Libya), Libya.

. Construction commenced in May 1878, with the line leaving the Main South Line at Tinwald (Tinwald, New Zealand), not far south of Ashburton (Ashburton, New Zealand). With the onset of the Long Depression looming, the construction work on the line provided valuable employment, and as it was built, it was progressively opened. The first 13.39 km to Westerfield (Westerfield, New Zealand) were opened on 15 April 1880, followed by Anama, 30.9 km from the junction, on 3 October 1882, and then Cavendish (Cavendish, New Zealand) on 1 March 1884, 35.02 km from Tinwald. At 1 am on April 3, 1972, four red-hot 13.6 kg titanium alloy balls landed within a 16 km radius of each other just outside Ashburton (Ashburton, New Zealand), New Zealand.

Czechoslovakia In the summer of 1938, when Germany was preparing an invasion (German occupation of Czechoslovakia) of Czechoslovakia scheduled for October 1 of that year, the ''Einsatzgruppen'' were founded. The intention was for ''Einsatzgruppen'' to travel in the wake of the German armies as they advanced into Czechoslovakia, and to secure government papers and offices. Unlike the early ''Einsatzkommando'', the ''Einsatzgruppen'' were to be armed and authorized to freely use lethal force to accomplish their mission. The Munich Agreement of 1938 prevented the war for which the ''Einsatzgruppen'' were originally founded, but as the Germans occupied the Sudetenland in the fall of 1938, the ''Einsatzgruppen'' moved into the region to occupy offices formerly belonging to the Czechoslovak state. After the occupation of the rest of the Czech portion of Czechoslovakia on March 15, 1939, the ''Einsatzgruppen'' were re-formed and again used to secure offices formerly belonging to the Czechoslovak government. The ''Einsatzgruppen'' were never a standing formation; rather they were ad hoc units recruited mostly from the ranks of the SS (Schutzstaffel), the SD (Sicherheitsdienst), and various German police forces such as the Ordnungspolizei, the Gendarmerie, the Kripo and the Gestapo. Once the military campaign had ended, the ''Einsatzgruppen'' units were disbanded, though generally the same personnel were recruited again if the need arose for the ''Einsatzgruppen'' units to be re-activated. Sometime between late June 1940 when planning for Operation Barbarossa first started and March 1941, orders were approved by Adolf Hitler for the re-establishment of the ''Einsatzgruppen'' (the surviving historical record does not permit firm conclusions to be drawn about the precise date). Hillgruber 1989, p 94. On March 13, 1941 Hitler dictated sub-paragraph B of the "Guidelines in Special Spheres re Directive No. 21 (Operation Barbarossa)", which read: "In the operations area of the Army, the ''Reichsführer SS'' has been given special tasks on the orders of the ''Führer'', in order to prepare the political administration. These tasks arise from the forthcoming final struggle of two opposing political systems. Within the framework of these tasks, the ''Reichsführer SS'' acts independently and on his own responsibility." Hillgruber 1989, p 95. Sub-paragraph B was intended by Hitler to prevent the sort of friction that had occurred in Poland in 1939 when several German Army generals had attempted to bring ''Einsatzgruppen'' leaders
