Die farbigen Dämmerungserscheinungen

Die Natur, die Welt, die uns umgibt, ist unermeßlich reich an Farben. Der Mensch hat seine farbige Welt selbst seit Jahrtausenden darzustel­ len versucht. Das geschah in prähistorischen Felsmalereien, während der klassischen Malereiepochen, in farbiger Plastik, in den glühenden Farben der Glasfenster romanischer und gotischer Kathedralen, in der Dichtkunst, im Feuerwerk, in der Forschung.

Remote Sensing Applications in Meteorology and Climatology

This used to be the fourth postgraduate summer season college on distant sensing to be held in Dundee. those summer season colleges have been originated by way of, and proceed to stay in, the programme of EARSel (European organization of distant Sensing Laboratories) operating staff three on schooling and coaching in distant Sensing. the 1st of those summer season colleges was once held in 1980 on "Remote Sensing in Meteorology, Oceanography and Hydrology".

Living in denial : climate change, emotions, and everyday life

International warming is the main major environmental factor of our time, but public reaction in Western international locations has been meager. Why have so few taken any motion? during this publication sociologist Kari Norgaard searches for solutions to this question.

The same is true of the water-vapor flux. Considering also that the winter-summer mean may not represent a true annual average, it is difficult to judge which of the curves in Fig. 6 better represents the real northward flux of energy in the atmosphere.

4 MAINTENANCE OF THE ZONAL CIRCULATION We shall now turn to the main question of the maintenance of the mean atmospheric circulation. 5) Here C'I' and C, represent the meridional and vertical circulation fluxes, and J'I' and J, the corresponding eddy fluxes. 6) Inserting Eqs. 6) into Eq. 7b) These terms represent the contributions of the meridional and vertical divergences of the eddy fluxes of angular momentum, and can be considered analogous to "frictional" terms caused by large- and small-scale eddy (Reynolds) stresses.
