3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gossamer Albatross( Visual )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advanced engineering and human endurance are challenged in this extraordinary man-powered flight across the English Channel. Chronicles the development of the ultra-light plane and the difficulties of man versus nature, machine and fatigue
Flying free( Visual )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inventor Paul MacCready builds flying machines inspired by nature. Alan Alda joins MacCready's team as they test fly a variety of unconventional planes. Also examines how nature itself first solved the problem of flight, when insects evolved wings more than 300 million years ago

Analysis of Flagstaff data : report no. 2 by inc Meteorology Research( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report continues the analysis of data obtained in the summers of 1962 and 1963 on the Flagstaff field program. The total program consists of four subjects: (1) Precipitation mechanisms and droplet coalescence; (2) case studies of seeded clouds; (3) cloud and storm development; and (4) electrification. This report contains the final results of item (1) and a final portion of item (3), each given here as a separate portion with its own abstract. (1) The evolution of droplet distributions with height is given. Droplet concentrations were large, and some correlation of concentration versus upcurrent strength at cloud base was observed. Liquid drops grew in the cells by coalescence, perhaps starting from giant nuclei (ofte about 20 per liter, but zero in one case). Graupel from freezing and riming of these drops was regularly encountered at -5 and -6C, mostly in the cloud outside the convective cores. (3) In southwest flow conditions, morning convective clouds form near the peaks primarily over the sunlit (eastern) slopes. Convective storm formation areas were (a) downwind of the peaks (the convective wake), (b) over the peaks (elevated heat source of the peaks), (c) over a low ridge southwest of Flagstaff (ridge heating), and (d) over the desert northwest of the peaks (isolated desert heat source).
