12 yacht trackers compared to help you choose the right unit for your voyage - Page 2 of 2 - Yachting World First a few words about what functions are on offer and what they are useful for. Don’t get distracted by the vast range of functionality on offer. Important things to consider are: what functions are actually useful to you; what is the real cost of using extra functions; and does it represent good value? Below is an outline of some of the more important functions I tested. Sharing Sharing your track with friends is one of the wonderful things about this technology, so consider the ease of access to these facilities.

El Niño Upsets Seasons and Upends Lives Worldwide Because most Indians are farmers, and a majority rely entirely on the monsoon rains, a blow to the rainy season is devastating, rendering lives barely recognizable. Instead of guarding his annual harvest against wild buffalo, as he has done for as long as he can remember, these days Mr. Yadav sits among a crowd outside the door of the village headman, hoping to get picked for a public works program that pays 161 rupees (about $2.40) a day.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific intergovernmental body under the auspices of the United Nations,[1][2] set up at the request of member governments.[3] It was first established in 1988 by two United Nations organizations, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and later endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly through Resolution 43/53. Membership of the IPCC is open to all members of the WMO and UNEP.[4] The IPCC is chaired by Rajendra K. Pachauri. The IPCC does not carry out its own original research, nor does it do the work of monitoring climate or related phenomena itself.

Biochemistry, Sixth Edition Author: , Date: 06 Mar 2011, Views: 1690, Jeremy M. Berg, John L. Tymoczko, Lubert Stryer, "Biochemistry, Sixth Edition" W. Real Climate We’ve often been asked to provide a one stop link for resources that people can use to get up to speed on the issue of climate change, and so here is a first cut. Unlike our other postings, we’ll amend this as we discover or are pointed to new resources. Different people have different needs and so we will group resources according to the level people start at. For complete beginners:

Drones – how new flying robots can benefit sailors, from unique photography to MOB and rescue aids - Yachting World New waterproof drones, or quadcopters, with payload carrying and release mechanisms could open up new opportunities for sea search and rescue. They can also be your 'eyes in the crow's nest' when approaching unknown shoals - and they make for annoyingly cool toys... Drones. Love them, hate them or fear them, these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are becoming mainstream. Outside the military, a drone’s primary benefit – aerial photography – has meant their popularity has skyrocketed in commercial civilian circles, where they are mainly used for producing film or using the imagery for inspection purposes. And it is thought that over a million domestic drones or quadcopters are already in use.

CHUVA Project The physical processes inside clouds are one of the most unknown components of weather and climate systems. A description of cloud processes through the use of standard meteorological parameters in numerical models has to be strongly improved to accurately describe the characteristics of hydrometeors, latent heating profiles, radiative balance, air entrainment and cloud updrafts and downdrafts. Numerical models have been improved to run at higher spatial resolutions where it is necessary to describe explicit these cloud processes. For instance, to analyze the effects of global warming in a given region it is necessary to perform simulations taking into account all of these cloud processes described above. Another important application which requires this knowledge is satellite precipitation estimation.

Hemodynamic Monitoring Using Echocardiography in the Critically Ill Author: , Date: 08 Mar 2011, Views: 394, Hemodynamic Monitoring Using Echocardiography in the Critically Ill1st Edition. edition (March 1, 2011) | ISBN: 3540879544 | 538 pages | File type: PDF | 33 mb The hemodynamic evaluation of patients with acute circulatory failure and respiratory failure has in the past usually been performed using invasive procedures but in recent years less invasive monitoring devices have been introduced.

CERES Data Products Level Descriptions Level 3B: Level 3 data products that are adjusted within their range of uncertainty so as to satisfy known constraints on the climate system (e.g., consistency between average global net TOA flux imbalance and ocean heat storage). Level 3: Data products are the radiative fluxes and cloud properties that are spatially averaged into uniform regional and zonal grids and globally and also temporally averaged into daily, monthly hourly, or monthly means. Level 2: Data products are derived geophysical variables at the CERES footprint resolution as the Level 1B source data. They include the Level 1B parameters, along with the retrieved or computed geophysical variables such as radiative broadband fluxes and their associated MODIS cloud properties. Level 1B: Data products are processed to sensor units.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is the successor to the International Meteorological Organization, which was established in 1873. It formally came into existence in 1950 and became a UN specialised agency in 1951. by jerry_jenkins Dec 18
