A Pictorial Record of the Qing Dynasty: Rivers and Sites by Tianjin Library

By Tianjin Library

A Pictorial list of the Qing Dynasty - Rivers and Sites, contains significant different types of maps: river maps and maps of old sites.

China was once an agrarian society in the course of medieval instances, and harnessing rivers performed a big position in maintaining social improvement. A Compendium on Harnessing Rivers, which was once accomplished within the forty second 12 months of Emperor Kangxi s reign (1703), includes a huge variety of priceless photographs compiled and edited by way of Zhang Penghe, the governor-general accountable for rivers. The e-book additionally comprises maps of varied rivers drawn by means of nameless artists. They list the vicissitudes of rivers and components alongside the banks whereas even as realistically tracing the shapes of urban partitions, areas of ancient curiosity, and wonder spots alongside the rivers.

As a mom river of the chinese language kingdom, the Yellow River has consistently been the point of interest of a lot realization, leading to extra old chinese language maps of this river than the other in China. This e-book collects many maps of the Yellow River made in the course of the overdue Qing interval, so much of which additionally list in writing the dates of the crevasse and the closure of a undeniable part of the river and the deployment of infantrymen guarding it. an entire Map of the Yellow River inside Shandong, A Map of the Yellow River in the complete Province of Shandong, A Concise whole Map of the Yellow River inside of Shandong are one of the maps provided during this book.

Other maps on hand contain Maps of the Rivers less than Baoding Prefecture, Maps of the Rivers lower than Zhengding Prefecture, and Maps of the Rivers less than the 5 Prefectures of Zhili Ji, Zhao, Shen, Ding, and Yi.

In addition, there are 3 maps of old curiosity: Maps of His Majesty s transitority residing Palaces on His go back trip, Maps of Dagu Batteries, and Illustrations of Wendeng, Weihai, and different ancient Sites..

KEY FEATURES
- Rivers and Sites is the 3rd e-book in A Pictorial list of the Qing Dynasty sequence. the opposite 3 books are entitled enterprise records (Released may well 2008), outdated Manchu Capital (Released June 2008), and Manchurian Railway (to be unencumber November 2008).

- such as over four hundred maps that seem in chronological order in ten different types, each one adorned with coloured drawings.

- unique pictures and entire color

Methane and Climate Change

Methane is a strong greenhouse gasoline and is envisioned to be liable for nearly one-fifth of artificial international warming. consistent with kilogram, it is twenty-five occasions extra strong than carbon dioxide over a 100-year time horizon – and international warming is probably going to augment methane unlock from a few assets.

Learning from the Impacts of Superstorm Sandy

Studying from the affects of Superstorm Sandy summarizes first effects from reports of Superstorm Sandy, together with: tide gauge measurements of hurricane surge, good isotope edition in precipitation, research of the impression of seashore nourishment between different components on structural harm, and comparability with previous storms via sediment research.

Effect Size for ANOVA Designs (Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences)

This advisor lays out the computational tools for "d" with a number of designs together with factorial ANOVA, ANCOVA and repeated measures ANOVA; "d" divides the saw impact through the normal deviation of the established variable. all through, the computations are illustrated at the comparable information, a complete set of simulated observations on air site visitors controllers.

Example text

Section 2 and Sec. 3 provide necessary base knowledge for subsequent chapters, while the remaining sections are selective stand-alone reading materials. Readers can proceed to the following chapters without them, though they offer useful perspectives on various other discussions. Readers may prefer to return to these sections later as required. /latexs tyles/ws − book + copyedits − 9x6 P1005-main Part I: Basic parameterization concepts and issues Formal statement of the problem Throughout this book, we often work with a generic physical variable designated by ϕ, which is governed by an equation: 1 ∂ ∂ ϕ + ∇ · uϕ + ρwϕ = F.

Such problems are instructive in revealing the role of concepts such as scale separation and quasi-equilibrium, which will occupy much of the following chapters. Some possible strategies for the construction of parameterizations in more complex situations are also outlined, drawing on moment expansions for turbulence theory, the use of probability density functions for the small and/or fast scales, and the identification of dominant structures or modes within the small and/or fast scales. All of these ideas have been manifest in the development of convective parameterizations to a greater or lesser extent, and certainly they are reflected in much of the language used to discuss convective parameterization concepts.

Especially in developing anti-cyclonic weather situations, when the air is stable, the morning sun heats up the wet surface and fair-weather cumuli appear. These are cumulus humilis which do not reach the LFC and thus remain as thin cumulus clouds (Fig. 3). Reaching the LFC is the next filter for convective cells. Their success depends on the initial kinetic energy taken from the thermal phase, the vertical temperature gradient of the atmosphere, and the water vapour content of the rising air. The vertical temperature gradient depends on the actual weather situation.
