He was a product of a local primary school and Minehead Grammar School. Later on, Chorley began studying Geomorphology as an undergraduate at the School of Geography at Oxford, where he went up to Exeter College (Exeter College, Oxford) after service with the Royal Engineers. Here he was greatly influenced by R.P. Beckinsale, who advised Chorley to go on to graduate study in the United States. He made a transatlantic move in 1951 as a Fulbright Scholar to Columbia University where he was a graduate student in the Geology Department and explored the quantitative approach to land form evolution. *South Somerset *Taunton Deane and West Somerset


Yulin, Shaanxi

the Red Stone Gorge, a canyon lined with grottoes containing carved ancient writing and Buddhist art. The town also contains an ancient pagoda. The Chinese dialect of Jin (Jin Chinese) is spoken in Yulin. Environment (Name unknown) was the wife of Helian Chang, an emperor of the Chinese (History of China) Xiongnu state Xia (Xia (Sixteen Kingdoms)). Very little is known about her—not even her name or when she was created empress. When the Xia capital Tongwan (統萬, in modern Yulin (Yulin, Shaanxi), Shaanxi) fell to Northern Wei forces in 427, she was captured, along with her mother-in-law, even though her husband fled to Shanggui (上邽, in modern Tianshui, Gansu). Nothing is known about her fate after she was captured. After Helian Chang was captured by Northern Wei in 428, Emperor Taiwu of Northern Wei married one of his sisters, the Princess Shipping, to him. The succession table below assumes that she was created empress when Helian Chang became emperor in 425, although that is obviously speculation. During Helian Chang's reign After Helian Bobo's death in 425, Helian Ding's older brother Helian Chang (who had replaced Helian Gui as crown prince in 424) succeeded him. Helian Chang gave Helian Ding more authorities than before, and Helian Ding quickly became one of the major generals that his brother relied on. After rival Northern Wei's general Daxi Jin (達奚斤) captured the important city of Chang'an in 426, Helian Chang sent Helian Ding south in spring 427 from the capital Tongwan (統萬, in modern Yulin (Yulin, Shaanxi), Shaanxi) to try to capture Chang'an. He became stalemated with Daxi at Chang'an.

Alaverdi

:''For the monastery, see Alaverdi Monastery.'' :''In Georgian culture, the alaverdi is the person granted the right to speak right after the toastmaster, see Tamada.'' ) is a town in the Lori Province at the northeastern part of Armenia, not far from the border with Georgia (Georgia (country)). With an approximate population of 16,500 inhabitants (down from 26,300 in 1989), Alaverdi is situated at the bottom of the Debed river gorge. The town is one of the important commercial and industrial centres of the district and the entire republic. It is located at the only direct rail link between Armenia and Georgia (Georgia (country)). Alaverdi was formerly known as ''Manes''. History thumb left General view of Alaverdi (File:Alaverdi111.jpg) Historically, the area of Manes-Alaverdi was part of '''Dzoropor''' canton of Gugark province of Greater Armenia (Kingdom of Armenia (antiquity)). Starting from the 17th century, the settlement became to be known as Alaverdi which is derived from the name Alvert which means red stone,probably this is due to the fact of copper mines exploration in the region of Alaverdi from ancient times. When the area was annexed to the Russian Empire at the end of the 18th century, a number of Pontic Greek miners were resettled in the area to start exploiting the copper, through the efforts of the Argoutinski-Dolgoruki family. Soon after, nearly a quarter of the entire Russian copper was being mined in Alaverdi. At the end of the 19th century, the concession to exploit the mine was sold to a French firm. During the Soviet rule in the 20th century, the town acquired its current socialist industrial appearance. After the independence, the metallurgical plant was privatized to become a major employer for the town and its surroundings. Alaverdi has many historical structures, including the 12th-century bridge of Sanahin. However, many other important cultural monuments are located in the vicinity of the town, including the monasteries of Sanahin, Haghpat, Kobayr, Akhtala (Akhtala Monastery), Khorakert, Khuchap, Ardvi and a basilica in Odzun. Industry thumb left Alaverdi Copper Plant (File:322 Alaverdi Usine.JPG) During the Georgian rule over Alaverdi region, the '''Alaverdi Copper Smelter''' was founded in 1770, by the order of Georgian king Erekle II. At the end of the 19th century, the region was flourished through the growing Russian and French investments in metallurgical business. In 1903, the amount of copper produced in Alaverdi region made around 13% of the total copper production in the Russian Empire. By the end of 1909, the hydropower plant of Debed river was inaugurated in order to provide the developing metallurgical plants with sufficient energy. During the Soviet (Soviet Union) rule, massive construction works were carried on in Alaverdi, including the surrounding areas of Sanahin and other villages. The Soviets made significant steps for the enlargement of the metallurgical industry in the region, which has turned Alaverdi from a small industrial settlement to a modern town within Soviet Armenia (Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic). Recently, new plans were introduced for the expansion of copper production in Alaverdi smelter and the development of new copper mines within the frameworks of the "Armenian Copper" project. Around 500 job opportunities are secured by the copper factory. Education and religion thumb left The church of Saint Gregory of Narek (File:Ալավերդու Սուրբ Գրիգոր Նարեկացի եկեղեցին 02.jpg) The first educational centre in the area of Alaverdi was the University of Sanahin, which was opened in 966 AD by the efforts of the Bagratuni (Bagratuni Dynasty) queen Khosrovanush. The town is one of the important educational centres in Lori. As of 2009, 10 public education schools are operating in Alaverdi with nearly 2,000 students, and 6 nursery schools with more than 400 kids. The State College of Alaverdi offers an opportunity in pedagogical studies with a duration of two years, while the ''Tumanynan'' branch of the Northern University offers
