The crystalline state by R. W James( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume of this work, the first of the more detailed volumes planned to follow the general account of the subject given in Vol. I, is intended to provide an outline of the general optical principles underlying the diffraction of X-rays by matter, which may serve as a foundation on which to base subsequent discussions of actual methods and results. Accordingly, reference has been made to experiments only where these illustrate principles, and all details of actual techniques and of their application to specific problems, have been considered as lying beyond the scope of the volume

Practical methods for observing and forecasting ocean waves by means of wave spectra and statistics...reprinted by Williard J Pierson( Book )

Accuracy of sea surface temperature analyses-part iii( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Sea surface temperatures from an airborne radiation thermometer survey on 21 June 1966 are compared with five sea surface temperature analyses. The charts evaluated were those prepared by Fleet Numerical Weather Facility, Monterey; Fleet Weather Facility, Norfolk; a Naval Oceanographic Office composite and historical chart; plus an atlas presentation. Evaluation showed the manually prepared, subjective charts of the Fleet Weather Facility, Norfolk, and the Naval Oceanographic Office to be most reliable as sources of sea surface temperature information. Results agree with the conclusions drawn from similar comparisons made with April and May airborne radiation thermometer data. (Author)

Accuracy of sea surface temperature analysis-part i( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Five sea surface temperature analyses (Fleet Numerical Weather Facility, Monterey; Fleet Weather Facility, Norfolk; NAVOCEANO 15-day composite; H.O. 225 Atlas; and a historical chart) are compared with surface temperatures obtained on a recent airborne radiation thermometer flight. The flight from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Patuxent River, Maryland, was made under conditions of clear skies and with sufficient wind to mix the surface film. Fleet Weather Facility, Norfolk and the NAVOCEANO composite analysis proved most reliable with mean absolute errors of 3.7 F and 3.6 F, respectively. These charts were also considered more useful in that they show details such as countercurrents, the north wall of the Gulf Stream, and other high gradient areas. A May 1965 mean monthly sea surface temperature chart was used as a historical chart and had an error of 3.8 F. The Atlas and Monterey's charts had errors of 5.3 F and 9.6 F, respectively. By elimination of bias, errors were reduced on all analyses; Fleet Weather Facility showing the smallest error, 3.2 F. It is concluded that considerable improvement can still be realized in sea surface temperatture analyses once sufficient data of a reliable nature are available. With present data input, the Fleet Weather Facility manually prepared, subjective chart provides the most reliable sea surface temperature information for the ASWEPS area. (Author)
Accuracy of sea surface temperature analyses-part ii( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Five sea surface temperature analyses are compared with sea surface temperatures obtained by use of the airborne radiation thermometer on a detailed survey in April 1966 of the waters from Norfolk to 200 miles seaward. The charts evaluated were the daily analysis of Fleet Numerical Weather Facility (Monterey) and Fleet Weather Facility (Norfolk), a Naval Oceanographic Office 15-day composite chart and a historic chart, and the mean monthly sea surface temperature chart from the H.O. 225 Atlas of monthly sea surface temperatures. The manually prepared, subjective analysis of Fleet Weather Facility (Norfolk) was found to be most reliable with a mean absolute error of 4.3 F. Both the Naval Oceanographic Office composite analysis and historic chart showed more skill than the Atlas and Fleet Numerical Weather Facility analyses, and the former chart showed considerable details that were also observed. The results were found to agree with the conclusions drawn from the May evaluation of a similar set of five analyses as described by James (1966). (Author)
Effect of Variation of Intake Depths on Water Injection Temperatures( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Water intake temperature errors generally fall into one of the following major categories: (1) Engine room heating, (2) Observer error, (3) Coding error, (4) Depth of water intake. Although high engine room temperatures are often suggested as positively biasing intake temperature, this conclusion is not supported by facts. Observer errors in reading the thermometer is undoubtedly the major cause of large temperature errors in injection readings and can be eliminated only by use of a better sensing system. Coding errors are significant but offer the best possibility for correction. Since many classes of ships report water temperatures and because each class has a different type of hull with a particular depth of water intake, errors occur in reported water temperatures because of the variation in sampling depths. By use of the tables and figures in this study, it is possible to determine temperature errors between 0 and 11.5 F. The average annual temperature error is only 0.033 F, and vertical gradients at the surface were less than 1.0 F per 20 feet 94 percent of the time. At this gradient, the average temperature error was only 0.165 F, and the absolute error for all intake depths ranged between zero and 0.6 F. This latter error could be halved by limiting installation to 75 percent of the ships. This study concludes that it is feasible to utilize the intake system as a means of improving the accuracy of sea surface temperature observations for operational utilization
