The cooler, denser air near the ground is unable to rise through the warm layers
above it and is therefore trapped until turbulent conditions can be reestablished.
There are two primary types of inversions: Radiation inversion: This type of
inversion normally occurs at night when heat absorbed by the earth during the
day radiates out quickly at night, leaving the air nearest the ground cooler than
the radiated warmer air above. These inversions are normally not persistent and
are easily ...

Because of the aquiclude, water pressure in permeable rock beneath the valley
can increase above that in the river. When a borehole is drilled through the
aquiclude, water will rise above ground level. Artesian conditions exist in many
parts of the world. In the nineteenth century, for example, London relied on
artesian groundwater for much of its water supply, and indeed the famous
fountains in Trafalgar Square are supposed to have been fed from artesian water
in the permeable ...

GPS satellites are considerably below the geostationary satellites, which are
usually used for communications and sending TV, telephone, and other signals
back to Earth-based fixed antennas. These satellites are 35,763 km (or 19,299
nm or 22,223 sm) above the Earth, where they hang over the equator. figure 1.1

In such a context there is, of course, a third element, that of height. Surveyors
have traditionally referred to this component of a position as its elevation. One
classical method of determining elevations is spirit leveling. A level, correctly
oriented at a point on the surface of the earth, defines a line parallel to the geoid
at that point. Therefore, the elevations determined by level circuits are orthometric
; that is, they are defined by their vertical distance above the geoid as it would be
measured ...

In the Emerald Tablet of Hermes, there is the expression “As Above, So Below”.
In other words, everything that is above the earth has something that corresponds
to it below the earth. 2. Astrology takes it two steps further with the following
statements: As within, so without. As the universe, so the soul. In other words,
everything within the body or within the creation of God corresponds to
something beyond the body or beyond the creation of God. Beyond the creation
of God it would be ...

Besides a more ready formation of currents, the elasticity of the air gives it yet
another property, tending eminently t0 the equalisation of temperature, and, in
fact, necessary to the equalising power of the wind. _ The earth's surface may be
considered as the bottom of the ocean of the air. The higher, therefore, is any
portion of the atmosphere above the earth's surface, the less is its depth beneath
the surface of this ocean, and the less, therefore, is the pressure upon it of the air
which is ...

As the Earth makes one complete revolution on its axis, in a direction from West
to East, in 24 hours, any one point of the Earth's surface must have been carried
through 360° in that time; or if we suppose a fixed meridian above the Earth, like
the brazen meridian of a globe, every part of the Equator, containing 360°, must
have passed under that meridian in 24 hours. Hence, if we divide 360 by 24, we
shall find how many degrees pass under this meridian in one hour, which will be

2.4.3 the Orbit and rotation of the earth The earth revolves around the sun once
per year in an elliptical orbit with the sun at one of the foci, such that the distance
from sun to the earth is given by [1] d n = × +− 15 10 ... The polar
axis of the earth is inclined by an angle of 23.45° to the plane of the earth's orbit
about the sun. This inclination ... On the first day of winter, the sun appears
vertically above the Tropic of Capricorn, which is latitude 23.45° S of the equator.
