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.

Calculating a Slope Determining the average slope of a hill using a topographic map is fairly simple. Slope can be given in two different ways, a percent gradient or an angle of the slope. The initial steps to calculating slope either way are the same. Decide on an area for which you want to calculate the slope (note, it should be an area where the slope direction does not change; do not cross the top of a hill or the bottom of a valley). Decide on an area for which you want to calculate the slope (note, it should be an area where the slope direction does not change; do not cross the top of a hill or the bottom of a valley). Once you have decided on an area of interest, draw a straight line perpendicular to the contours on the slope. To calculate a percent slope, simply divide the elevation change in feet by the distance of the line you drew (after converting it to feet). Using the example above, (click here or on image for larger picture) a hill with a 20% slope is equivalent to an 11° slope.

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.

Zetoc: Homepage Backfill material - MineDesignWiki From MineDesignWiki - Collaborating to create mining best practice Backfill binders Cement Portland cement and g round granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS), also referred to as s lag cement , are two principal binding agents that are used in the Canadian mining industry. Portland cement Portland cement is also referred to as hydraulic cement because it sets and hardens by reacting chemically with water. The principal chemical constituents of Portland cement are listed below. Tricalcium silicate or called alite Dicalcium silicate or called belite Tricalcium aluminate or Tetracalcium aluminoferrite or With slight chemical or physical variations, these constituents can be adjusted to produce Portland cements with special characteristics. Cement is classified into several product types, of which six have standards for use in concrete set out by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), in CSA- A3000 Cementitious Materials Compendium .

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.
