Airborne Optical System for Remote Sensing of Ocean Waves

By: Department of Defense

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office has defined a strategic requirement for obtaining bathymetry surveys of large areas of the world’s coastline. Unfortunately, present capabilities using survey ships and launches are extremely slow, and access to some coasts is restricted. The requirement may be partially satisfied through the use of airborne or satellite passive optics (Bierwirth et al 1993) or airborne active optics (Lillycrop et al 1996) which view the ocean bottom directly.

General Aspects in Polymer Synthesis

By: H. K. Reimschuessel

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The term, synthetic polymer denotes a macromolecule that is constructed from sequences of simple structural units, and is usually derived from monomers by a process of polymerization. The structural units may either be all identical or belong to classes of different types. In the former case, the polymer is known as a homopolymer; in the latter, it is called a copolymer. In either case, any process of converting monomers into a polymeric structure will proceed o...

By: Bradley C. Autrey

Excerpt: Scientific Typical sampling programs require field sampling of water quality conditions, the Problem and costliness and time-consuming nature of which can lead to limitations in the Policy Issues sampling effort because comprehensive sampling of an entire large body of water is not feasible using these methods. The use of remotely sensed data could help water quality programs overcome these constraints by providing an alternative means of water quality monitorin...

The Role of Remote Sensing in Global Forest Assessment

By: Erkki Tomppo

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: The approach of FRA 2000 by FAO was the reliance on the participation of individual countries for both supply and analysis of information. It is hoped that this approach will lead for further capacity building in countries (FRA 2000 ?main report). While countries firmly support this approach, it has sometimes been criticised on the basis that country information may be inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date, or internationally inconsistent (Stokstad, 2001; Czaplews...

Mutineers' Moon

By: David Weber

Excerpt: Into the field of fire the tunnel seemed endless, yet the end was upon him almost before he realized it, and he lunged up another ladder. The shaft was sealed, but he was already probing at it, spotting the catch, heaving it up with a mighty shoulder. He burst into the night air . . . And his senses were suddenly afire with more power sources. More combat armor! Coming from behind in the prodigious leaps of jump gear and waiting in the woods ahead, as well!
