Atmospheric tides; thermal and gravitational by Sydney Chapman( Book )

19 editions published between 1969 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone is familiar with the daily changes of air temperature. The barometer shows that these are accompanied by daily changes of mass distribution of the atmosphere, and consequently with daily motions of the air. In the tropics the daily pressure change is evident on the barographs; in temperate and higher latitudes it is not noticeable, being overwhelmed by cyclonic and anticyclonic pressure variations. There too, however, the daily change can be found by averaging the variations over many days; and the same process suffices to show that there is a still smaller lunar tide in the atmosphere, first sought by Laplace. Throughout nearly two centuries these 'tides', thermal and gravitational, have been extensively discussed in the periodical literature of science, although they are very minor phenomena at ground level. This monograph summarizes our present knowledge and theoretical under­ standing of them. It is more than twenty years since the appearance of the one previous monograph on them - by Wilkes - and nearly a decade since they were last comprehensively reviewed, by Siebert. The intervening years have seen many additions to our know­ ledge of the state of the upper atmosphere, and of the tides there, on the basis of measurements by radio, rockets and satellites

The average morphology of geomagnetic storms with sudden commencement by Masahisa Sugiura( Book )

7 editions published between 1960 and 1961 in English and German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The average morphology is described of geomagnetic storms with sudden commencement. A numerical intensity index was assigned to each of 346 storms occurring in 1902--45. On the basis of these indices the storms were divided into three sets, of 136 weak, 136 moderate, and 74 great storms. Their morphology was studied separately. For weak storms records were analyzed from 26 magnetic observatories, ranging in geomagnetic latitude from 80 deg N to 48 deg S; and for moderate and great storms, from 19 observatories, 80 deg N to 1 deg S. The stormtime variation Dst and the disturbance longitudinal inequality DS were determined for the first three storm days for different latitudes. The DS variation was obtained, and harmonically analyzed, for each of the first 8 quarter-day intervals and for the succeeding three 8-hour intervals. New features of storm morphology during the first few hours of storm time were discovered: namely, that DS reaches its maximum in about two or three hours from the storm commencement, and that its phase rapidly changes during the first few storm hours.
