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

For a multiconductor line with a separation distance, dp, between the outermost
conductors, the attractive width will be 2ωp + dp. Now, ifa second horizontal
conductor, S, is placed near P, the attractive width of S will be cd (Figure 7.5b). If
S is intended to completely shield P, then the cylinder around S and the rs-plane
above the earth's surface must completely surround the attractive cylinder around
P. However, as Figure 7.5b shows, an unprotected width, db, remains. Stepped

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 ...

This extends about 10 miles (16 km) above Earth's surface at the equator,
diminishing to half that thickness at the poles. As the Sun warms Earth's surface,
some of the heat is transferred to the air above. This effect is greatest at the
equator and least at the poles. Warm air tends to rise and cold air to sink, causing
vertical movements of air and creating changes in air pressure. These
movements and pressure changes take excess heat from the equator toward the
poles, stabilizing ...

If the planet be above the Earth, and in north declination, add the ascensional
difference to 90 deg. to find its semi-arc; and if it be in south declination, subtract
the ascensional difference from 90 degrees for its semi-arc. Rule 4.—-If the
planet be below the Earth in north declination, subtract; but if it be in south
