GISS: G.Projector - Global Map Projector G.Projector transforms an equirectangular map image into any of over 125 global and regional map projections. Longitude-latitude gridlines and continental outlines may be drawn on the map, and the resulting image may be saved to disk in GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG, PS or TIFF form. G.Projector is a cross-platform application that runs on Macintosh, Windows, Linux and other desktop computers. The current version of G.Projector is 1.8, released 2015-09-18. Get G.Projector G.Projector requires that your computer have a Java 7 or 8 runtime environment, or better, installed. Download G.Projector Additional CNO/CNOB overlay files compatible with G.Projector are available from the Panoply software collection of optional "outline overlays". Documentation and Credits Contact If you wish to be notified when new versions of G.Projector are released, if you would like to report a bug, or if you would like to become a G.Projector beta tester, please contact the author, Dr.

Los Alamos Climate Ocean and Sea Ice Modeling: Software: SCRIP Mission: The purpose of the COSIM project is to develop, test and apply ocean and ice models in support of DOE Climate Change Research and the Long Term Measure of delivering improved climate data and models needed to determine acceptable levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Read more Model development: Over the past 15 years, Los Alamos has developed a strong program in numerical modeling of the oceans and sea ice, with special emphasis on high-performance computing. Read more Research: Climate change at high latitudes is observed to be rapid and dramatic, with subsequent impacts felt globally. Read more History: COSIM started under the Department of Energy's Computer Hardware, Advanced Mathematics and Model Physics (CHAMMP) program in 1991 with Bob Malone, Rick Smith and John Dukowicz.

les Zones mortes du globe Une zone morte est une zone hypoxique (déficitaire en oxygène dissous) située dans un environnement aquatique (mers, océans, estuaires, grands lacs, mares, etc.). Les études conduites en mer Baltique et aux États-Unis depuis la fin des années 1990 montrent que nombre de poissons, dont on pourrait penser qu'ils puissent facilement les fuir, y perdent rapidement connaissance et meurent asphyxiés. Comme on l'a observé au moyen de films pris par des robots [1],[2], si dans certains cas, certains poissons semblent pouvoir échapper à la mort, les crustacés tels que homards, langoustes ou crevettes se déplacent trop lentement pour échapper à l’asphyxie. Au XXIe siècle, des zones mortes sont observées de plus en plus souvent, et sur des surfaces de plus en plus grandes. Ces phénomènes peuvent durer toute l'année, quelques heures ou quelques jours.

Transverse Mercator Projection Parameters PROJ.4 Organization +proj=tmerc +lat_0=Latitude of natural origin +lon_0=Longitude of natural origin +k=Scale factor at natural origin +x_0=False Easting +y_0=False Northing EPSG Notes The Transverse Mercator projection in its various forms is the most widely used projected coordinate system for world topographical and offshore mapping. The most familiar and commonly used Transverse Mercator is the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) whose natural origin lies on the equator. The reverse formulas to convert Easting and Northing projected coordinates to latitude and longitude are: For areas south of the equator the value of latitude * will be negative and the formulas above, to compute the E and N, will automatically result in the correct values.

Zetoc: Homepage L’hécatombe se poursuit…Oiseaux, poissons, baleines… Des milliers de poissons morts autour de Jervis Bay Australie! Entre 3000 et 4000 poissons de 20 espéces différentes retrouvés mort dans le Sud Est de l’Australie. Nouvelle-Zélande: des baleines échouées ont dû être abattues ?!!! WELLINGTON – Les services de l’environnement de Nouvelle-Zélande ont dû abattre dix baleines pilotes échouées dans une baie reculée, faute d’espoir de pouvoir les remettre à la mer, ont-ils indiqué vendredi. Les baleines pilotes ou globicéphales, étaient des survivants d’un groupe de 24 retrouvé vendredi matin, pris au piège dans la boue et la mangrove dans le port de Parengarenga, à 320 km au nord-ouest d’Auckland, ont indiqué les responsables de l’Environnement. Jonathan Maxwell en charge de cette zone a indiqué que des agents avaient réussi à atteindre les globicéphales, qui étaient en mauvais état alors que les conditions météorologiques se dégradaient. « Malheureusement, les conditions allaient à l’encontre des animaux.

Weiler-Atherton Clipping Applet Background The Weiler-Atherton clipping algorithm is a general purpose 2D clipping algorithm. While most clipping algorithms are optimized for a rectangular clipping region, the Wieler-Atherton algorithm can use simple polygons for both the subject of the clipping as well as the actual clipping region itself. The algorithm has two general phases. This tool was designed to support two activities - delivering a lecture on the Weiler-Atherton algorithm and self-guided exploration of the algorithm. The Tool The tool is quite straightforward to use. If you have any questions about this visualization or just want to relate your experiences using it, please don't hesitate to contact me.
