Most widely held works by Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories (U.S.)
Handbook of geophysics and space environments by Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories (U.S.)( Book )

8 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is a comprehensive collection of data, formulas, definitions, and theories concerning the natural environment. It was written by scientists of the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories (AFCRL) which, in 1976, became the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory (AFGL). It was designed to serve a broad spectrum of users: the planner, designer, developer, and operator of aerospace systems; the scientist who will find the tables and figures a convenient reference in his own field; the specialist who needs environmental data in another discipline; and science minded people who seek a summary of space-age environmental research. Revisions of individual chapters and sections of this handbook will be published as additional environmental research efforts pay off in new knowledge

The Solar corona; proceedings by John Wainwright Evans( Book )

4 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Solar Corona covers the proceedings of the International Astronomical Union Symposium No. 16 held at Cloudcroft, New Mexico, U.S.A. on August 28-30, 1961. The book focuses on the characteristics, reactions, and analysis of the solar corona. The selection first offers information on the local physics of the corona and comments on coronal heating. Discussions focus on density, temperature, energy balance, excitation and ionization, and electrostatic ejection of light ions. The text then takes a look at the temperature of the solar corona and relative populations of Fe in the corona. The pu

A geomorphological and paleoclimatological study of the playas of Iran by Daniel B Krinsley( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The morphology of the surficial features of 60 playas within the interior of Iran is studied in order to determine their characteristics, distribution, and development. Surficial types delineated within the playa areas consist of clay flats, salt crusts, wet zones, intermittent and perennial lakes, fan deltas, and swamps. These units alone or in combination constitute the playa type. The type of playa that forms in an area is determined by the composition of its sediments and the position of the water table. Because the source of the sediments remains essentially stable, the playa is modified through time mainly as a result of changes in the hydrology of its basin. The hydrology is controlled by the form of the basin, the permeability of its bedrock, and its climate. Because the form and bedrock permeability of most of the Iranian basins have remained essentially stable since the late Pleistocene (Wurm), subsequent hydrologic changes may be attributed to climatic changes. -- p. i

Geology and hydrology of selected playas in western United States by Ward S Motts( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The playas studied during this investigation may be divided into 'fine-grained playas' (Rogers, Rosamond, Coyote Playas, California, and Big Smoky Playa, Nevada) and 'coarse-grained playas' (Troy Playa, California, and Clayton Playa, Nevada). The 'fine-grained playas' are characterized by: (1) deposits of medium silt through fine clay size, (2) slow artesian and capillary movement of water through the surface, (3) mostly smooth, hard surfaces, and (4) current formation of giant desiccation polygons in many of the playas. The 'coarse-grained playas' are characterized by: (1) deposits of sand, silt, and in some cases evaporites, (2) rapid capillary discharge, (3) a water table that nearly coincides with the playa surface, and (4) soft, surficial sediments. The surface morphology of most playas is related to several factors including the rate of capillary discharge producing puffy ground, and the frequency of surface-water flooding producing smooth, hard ground. Also, capillary discharge combined with deposition of mud from floods has transformed roots and water- transported plants into highly irregular knobby ground in some playas, including Clayton. Playas are dynamic landforms that change

Proceedings of the Conference on the Climate of the Eleventh and Sixteenth Centuries, Aspen, Colorado, June 16-24, 1962 by Conference on the Climate of the Eleventh and Sixteenth Centuries( Book )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forty scholars from the fields of meteorology, geography, geology, biology, anthropology, and history participated in a conference to present and assess data from their respective disciplines pertaining to the climates of the eleventh and sixteenth centuries, A.D. General decadal comparisons of the climates for the Northern Hemisphere in the latter half of the two centuries proved feasible with the data available. The participants agreed upon parameters most valuable to an historical assessment of climate, possible additional sources of data, and means of further interdisciplinary cooperation. It was also concluded that a repository for pertinent information should be established and that another assessment of available evidence should be made within five years. Recommendations of the participants, but not individual presentations of data, are presented. (Author)
