Formações colunares de basalto

O basalto é uma rocha de origem vulcânica muito dura, de cor negra, cinzenta ou verde escura, que resulta da solidificação rápida de lava em contacto com a atmosfera, por ocasião de erupções vulcânicas. 
 Como solidificou rapidamente, o material que compõe esta rocha não teve tempo para cristalizar a um ponto tal que os seus cristais possam ser vistos a olho nu. O basalto apresenta, portanto, uma textura lisa ou granulada muito fina. 
 Durante o processo de arrefecimento, o basalto contrai-se. Da contração podem resultar fraturas, as quais podem ser de tal maneira que a rocha acaba por se apresentar sob a forma de colunas prismáticas de base frequentemente hexagonal. 
 Foi o que aconteceu, nomeadamente, na chamada Calçada dos Gigantes, na Irlanda do Norte, que está classificada como Património Natural da Humanidade.

  5. If you Canon printer offline and you are unable to complete the scheduled tasks? This might happen if your printer is not connected properly to the power source but most of us overlook this because it is so basic. Your first step must be to check the connection between the printer and the power source and see if there are any loose wires or not.
    If it is properly connected then you can open the control panel in order to see if the canon printer is set as the default printer or not. If more than one printer is connected and some other printer is set as default then your canon printer will show offline.
    If you are still stuck in the Canon printer offline situation then you can connect with us and the experts will help you to get it back online.

  7. When there's a problem with QB library/DLL, then you'll face QuickBooks error 80029c4a. The first causes are missing or corrupted Dynamic Link Library file or incorrect firewall and antivirus configuration and settings. You’ll attempt to restart your QuickBooks application after temporarily blocking the firewall because sometimes your antivirus declares the programs as unauthorized. Subsequent step is to repair the QuickBooks installation, look for Apps and Features on your computer and search QuickBooks there. Now click Modify then select Repair QuickBooks installation. If still error code 80029c4a persists, then consider contacting the QB experts.
