Atlantis, The Antediluvian World by Ignatius Donnelly

By Ignatius Donnelly

Атлантида, мир до потопа — книга американского политика Игнатиуса Лойолы Доннелли, опубликованная в 1882 году. Доннелли считал сообщения Платона об Атлантиде описанием действительно существовавшей цивилизации, и пытался доказать, что все прочие древние цивилизации Земли произошли от атлантической. Книга стала чрезвычайно популярной (только к 1890 г. было предпринято 23 издания[1], а к 1949 г. — 50) и легла в основу суждений об Атлантиде в трудах Джеймса Чёрчварда, использовалась в рассуждениях об Атлантиде Е. П. Блаватской и Р. Штейнера[2]. На рассуждения Доннелли об общности древних культур Старого и Нового света оказали влияние эксцентрические теории Ш. Э. Брассёр де Бурбура и О. Ле-Плонжона.

Breaking Ocean Waves: Geometry, Structure and Remote Sensing (Springer Praxis Books / Geophysical Sciences)

This ebook represents the main complete description of the actual findings of an research into the spatio-temporal features of the gravity of breaking waves and the froth job in open sea by way of tools and tools of optical and microwave distant sensing.

The learn of actual and electrodynamics' homes of the gravity wave breaking procedures and the froth spatio-temporal task is a crucial side of satellite tv for pc oceanography, ocean engineering, air-sea interplay and ocean distant sensing. particularly, the contribution of froth formations of assorted forms to the suggest and the spatio-temporal diversifications of radio emission, back-scattering, IR and optical parameters of the disturbed sea floor is extremely major. The statistical features of wave breaking and attendant foam forming are vitally important to ocean wave dynamics. The examine and dimension of spatio-temporal features of wave breaking and sea foam formations are of primary value in ocean distant sensing.

Much emphasis is put on the actual elements of breaking tactics essential to degree the chances and boundaries of distant sensing tools in particular statement instances of an oceanic floor. a variety of sensible functions and illustrations are supplied from air-borne, ship-borne and laboratory up to date experiments.

The Ocean of Life: The Fate of Man and the Sea

A Silent Spring for oceans—from "the Rachel Carson of the fish world" (The ny occasions)

The sea feeds and sustains us, yet its destiny is below catastrophic danger. during this robust and impressive publication Callum Roberts—one of the world's best conservation biologists—tells the tale of the background of the ocean, from the earliest lines of water on the earth to the oceans as we all know them this present day. He deals a devastating account of the impression of overfishing, deep-sea mining, pollutants, and weather swap and explains what we needs to do now to maintain our swiftly dwindling marine lifestyles. Passionate and persuasive, the sea of lifestyles is a warning call that might attract an individual who loves the ocean and its creatures.

Interaction of ocean waves and wind

This is often the 1st publication to explain intimately the two-way interplay among wind and ocean waves and indicates how ocean waves have an effect on climate forecasting on timescales of five to ninety days. Winds generate ocean waves, yet whilst airflow is changed end result of the lack of power and momentum to the waves; hence, momentum loss from the ambience to the sea depends upon the country of the waves.

Sex, drugs, and sea slime : the oceans' oddest creatures and why they matter

Whilst seen from a quiet seashore, the sea, with its rolling waves and giant expanse, can look calm, even serene. yet hidden underneath the sea’s waves are a stunning abundance and diversity of energetic creatures, engaged within the unending struggles of life—to reproduce, to devour, and to prevent being eaten.

When these connecting ridges extended from America to Europe and Africa, they shut off the flow of the tropical waters of the ocean to the north: there was then no "Gulf Stream;" the land-locked ocean that laved the shores of Northern Europe was then intensely cold; and the result was the Glacial Period. When the barriers of Atlantis sunk sufficiently to permit the natural expansion of the heated water of the tropics to the north, the ice and snow which covered Europe gradually disappeared; the Gulf Stream flowed around Atlantis, and it still retains the circular motion first imparted to it by the presence of that island.

It is very probable that the centre of the convulsion was in the bed of the Atlantic, at or near the buried island of Atlantis, and that it was a successor of the great earth throe which, thousands of years before, had brought destruction upon that land. ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS IN 1737. Ireland also lies near the axis of this great volcanic area, reaching from the Canaries to Iceland, and it has been many times in the past the seat of disturbance. The ancient annals contain numerous accounts of eruptions, preceded by volcanic action.

The soil was exceedingly fertile; the scenery was diversified by rivers, mountains, and forests. It was the custom of the inhabitants to retire during the summer to magnificent country-houses, which stood in the midst of beautiful gardens. " St. Clement, in his Epistle to the Corinthians, says that there were other worlds beyond the ocean. Attention may here be called to the extraordinary number of instances in which allusion is made in the Old Testament to the "islands of the sea," especially in Isaiah and Ezekiel.
