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.
This used to be the fourth postgraduate summer season tuition on distant sensing to be held in Dundee. those summer time colleges have been originated via, and proceed to stay in, the programme of EARSel (European organization of distant Sensing Laboratories) operating crew three on schooling and coaching in distant Sensing. the 1st of those summer season faculties used to be held in 1980 on "Remote Sensing in Meteorology, Oceanography and Hydrology".
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 query.

398). 10 to yield the daily water loss in millimetres. 13. Thus loss of water to the air not only depletes the mass store (soil moisture) but also the energy store (soil and air temperature) as a result of taking up latent heat. Condensation operates in the reverse sense by adding to both the mass and energy stores. Melting and freezing are energetically less significant, but still of importance especially in soil climate. The measures of soil moisture content, and the processes of soil moisture movement and evaporation, are outlined in Chapter 2.
The effect of temperature change on the wavelength composition of the emitted radiation is embodied in Wien’s Displacement Law. It states that a rise in the temperature of a body not only increases the total radiant output, but also increases the proportion of shorter wavelengths of which it is composed. 5) with max in metres and T0 on the Kelvin scale. 5 Spectral distribution of radiant energy from a full radiator at a temperature of (a) 6000 K, left-hand vertical and lower horizontal axis, and (b) 300 K, right-hand vertical and upper horizontal axis.
E)) and the remaining 47% is absorbed (K*(E)). Thus, in summary, the solar radiation input is disposed of in the following manner: Three basic features of the short-wave radiation portion of the balance emerge. First, 28% of the E-A input is reflected to Space and does not participate further in the E-A system energy balance. Secondly, only 25% of the input is absorbed by the Atmosphere. Thus, as noted earlier, the Atmosphere is semi-transparent to short-wave radiation and consequently is not greatly heated by it.
