Narrative of the North Polar expedition : U.S. Ship Polaris, Captain Charles Francis Hall commanding by United States( Book )

17 editions published between 1876 and 2012 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This narrative has been prepared from official papers and from journals of the officers and men of the Expedition, as well as from valuable private contributions acknowledged in the text. The thread of the story of the Polaris has been drawn chiefly from a compilation made by Mr. R. W. D. Bryan, the Astronomer of the Expedition; the incidents of the ice-floe party have been furnished by the journals and note-books of Geo. E. Tyson, Assistant Navigator, and of others with him on the floe, and by the testimony given before the board organized by the Secretary of the Navy, June 5, 1873

Arctic researches and life among the Esquimaux : being the narrative of an expedition in search of Sir John Franklin, in the years 1860, 1861, and 1862 by Charles Francis Hall( Book )

36 editions published between 1865 and 2016 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before this book passes from the writer's hands into those of the reader, the author will be once more among the ice of the arctic regions. Though the last page of manuscript was written on the morning of my embarkation, the book itself has been no hasty work. I returned nearly two years ago from the expedition which I have endeavored to describe. Before dismissing the book, however, from my hands, I wish to say a few words by way of explanation of certain matters connected with my explorations. The reader will perhaps wonder why so much importance was given to the discovery of the Frobisher relics. I answer, partly because of the interest which attached itself to the remains of men so long ago left in that waste land; but partly, too, because the discovery of these remains, and the tracing of their history among the Esquimaux, confirmed, in a remarkable manner, my belief that these people retain among them, with great positiveness, the memory of important and strange incidents; and as their traditions of Frobisher, when I was able to get at them, were so clear, I am persuaded that among them may be sought, by one competent, with every chance of complete success, the sad history of Sir John Franklin's men"--Preface.

Digital color image compression in a perceptual space by Charles Francis Hall( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simple mathematical models are developed from the physiological and psychophysical traits of the human visual system. Expressions for the statistical characterization of these models are obtained. When used as a preprocessor, the models are shown to produce images which are statistically compatible with the underlying assumptions necessary to solve the parametric rate-distortion equations. The derived power spectrum equations were used to code black and white and color images with a quality superior to previous results. In addition, it is shown that the preprocessor produces a 'perceptual space' in which normalized mean square error is an effective image quality measure. (Author)

The Effect of modifications to the horizontal-tail profile on the high-speed longitudinal control of a pursuit airplane by Charles Francis Hall( Book )

2 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of high-speed wind-tunnel research on the effects of modifications to the horizontal-tail profile on the static longitudinal stability and control of a pursuit airplane at high speeds. Two symmetrical stabilizers (a modified NACA four-digit and an NACA 65-series airfoil), two flat-sided elevators, and three elevators with bulged profiles were investigated. The tests covered Mach numbers from approximately 0.30 to 0.80. The pitching-moment and elevator hinge-moment characteristics for a model airplane with the various tails are shown. The distribution of pressure over the tails is presented
Laboratory evaluation of graphite crucible coatings for vacuum melting uranium by Orville R Magoteaux( Book )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oxide and carbide coatings and methods of applying them to graphite crucibles were evaluated at the National Lead Company of Ohio on a laboratory scale. The objectives were to find a better crucible and mold coating than magnesia (MgO), which is currently used in the Metal Production Plant remelt operation, and a better method of application than brushing. The evaluation consisted of the vacuum-melting of slug uranium charges and derby uranium "as reduced" charges in graphite crucibles having different coatings, followed by studies of (1) the appearance of the coatings and (2) the metal quality (impurity levels) of the products

Life with the Esquimaux, Volume 1 : The Narrative of Captain Charles Francis Hall of the Whaling Barque George Henry from the 29th May, 1860, to the 13th September, 1862 by Charles Francis Hall( )

2 editions published between 1864 and 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1860, Charles Francis Hall (1821-71), the American polar explorer, embarked on the first of two voyages to the Canadian Arctic region aimed at investigating the fate of Sir John Franklin's lost expedition of 1847. During his time in the Arctic, Hall lived amongst the Inuit community, learning their language and embracing their everyday life. First published in 1864, Hall's recollections remain of great interest to anthropologists, sociologists and geographers. His eye-witness accounts of the indigenous people's dwellings, interpersonal relationships, hunting pursuits, birth and death rites, methods of transport, and survival strategies in severe weather conditions provide an insight into Inuit culture in the nineteenth century. Volume 1 describes Hall's journey north, arrival at Holsteinborg, the Danish administrative centre in Greenland, and onward voyage to Baffin Island, where his search for traces of Franklin, and his experience of Inuit life, began
Life with the Esquimaux, Volume 2 : The Narrative of Captain Charles Francis Hall of the Whaling Barque George Henry from the 29th May, 1860, to the 13th September, 1862 by Charles Francis Hall( )

2 editions published between 1864 and 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1860, Charles Francis Hall (1821-71), the American explorer, embarked on the first of two voyages to the Canadian Arctic region aimed at investigating the fate of Sir John Franklin's lost expedition of 1847. During his time in the Arctic, Hall lived amongst the Inuit community, learning their language and embracing their everyday life. First published in 1864, Hall's two-volume work remains of great interest to anthropologists, sociologists and geographers. His eye-witness accounts of the indigenous people's dwellings, hunting pursuits, birth and death rites, transportation, interpersonal relationships, and survival strategies in severe weather conditions provide an insight into Inuit culture in the nineteenth century. In Volume 2 he tells of his discovery in Frobisher Bay of artefacts from Martin Frobisher's sixteenth-century mining venture; the survival of these relics, together with his understanding of Inuit memory systems, convinces him that traces of Franklin and his crew may yet be found
