Drink

Surge is a soft drink developed by the New Products team at Coca Cola Atlanta in 1996-7. Surge was first produced by The Coca-Cola Company to compete with Pepsi's Mountain Dew during the 1990s. Surge was advertised as having a more "hardcore" edge, much like Mountain Dew's advertising at this time, in an attempt to further take customers away from Pepsi. A variant was launched the following year in Norway, Urge, because the Surge trademark was not available there. After being discontinued in 2003 because of lagging sales, September 15, 2014 Coca-Cola re-released it as a result of a group on Facebook known as the "Surge Movement".

  2. Surge: Glacial surges are short-lived events where a glacier can advance substantially, moving at velocities up to 100 times faster than normal. Surging glaciers are clustered around a few areas. High concentrations of surging glaciers can be found in Svalbard, Canadian Arctic islands, Alaska and Iceland. In some glaciers, surges can occur in fairly regular cycles with 15 to 100 or more surge events per year. In other glaciers, surging is unpredictable. In some glaciers, however, the period of stagnation and build-up between two surges typically lasts 10–200 years and is called the quiescent phase. During this period the velocities of the glacier are significantly lower, and the glaciers can retreat substantially.
