The cooler, denser air near the ground is unable to rise through the warm layers
above it and is therefore trapped until turbulent conditions can be reestablished.
There are two primary types of inversions: Radiation inversion: This type of
inversion normally occurs at night when heat absorbed by the earth during the
day radiates out quickly at night, leaving the air nearest the ground cooler than
the radiated warmer air above. These inversions are normally not persistent and
are easily ...

Because of the aquiclude, water pressure in permeable rock beneath the valley
can increase above that in the river. When a borehole is drilled through the
aquiclude, water will rise above ground level. Artesian conditions exist in many
parts of the world. In the nineteenth century, for example, London relied on
artesian groundwater for much of its water supply, and indeed the famous
fountains in Trafalgar Square are supposed to have been fed from artesian water
in the permeable ...

In such a context there is, of course, a third element, that of height. Surveyors
have traditionally referred to this component of a position as its elevation. One
classical method of determining elevations is spirit leveling. A level, correctly
oriented at a point on the surface of the earth, defines a line parallel to the geoid
at that point. Therefore, the elevations determined by level circuits are orthometric
; that is, they are defined by their vertical distance above the geoid as it would be
measured ...

Besides a more ready formation of currents, the elasticity of the air gives it yet
another property, tending eminently t0 the equalisation of temperature, and, in
fact, necessary to the equalising power of the wind. _ The earth's surface may be
considered as the bottom of the ocean of the air. The higher, therefore, is any
portion of the atmosphere above the earth's surface, the less is its depth beneath
the surface of this ocean, and the less, therefore, is the pressure upon it of the air
which is ...

As the Earth makes one complete revolution on its axis, in a direction from West
to East, in 24 hours, any one point of the Earth's surface must have been carried
through 360° in that time; or if we suppose a fixed meridian above the Earth, like
the brazen meridian of a globe, every part of the Equator, containing 360°, must
have passed under that meridian in 24 hours. Hence, if we divide 360 by 24, we
shall find how many degrees pass under this meridian in one hour, which will be
15.

Sita, the earth-born God's beloved bride, Then, from his island-kingdom, laugh'd
to scorn The insulted husband, and his power defied ; How to revenge the wrong
in wrath he hied, Bridging the sea. before his dreadful way, And met the hundred-
headed foe, And dealt him the unerring blow; By Brama's hand the righteous
lance was given, And by that arm immortal driven, It laid the mighty Tyrant low;
And Earth and Ocean, and high Heaven, Rejoiced to see his overthrow. Oh!
