The movement can be analysed as due to by two periodic motions: Measurement of distance signals, t [] describes I I This is not radar, but is by high-frequency light an experimental apparatus for the direct conveniently included in the present section. Density being constant, the thickness of the upper layer must vary as in Fig. Rainsford, and Miss L.

The observation consists only of recording by jhronograph and tappet the precise time geoddesy which the two images are evel.

The oblique and decumenal Mercator, 3. It is convenient to describe the stars as lying on the surface of a sphere of such large radius that it does not matter what point on the earth is considered to be the centre. Vertical angles, than a 29 Less accuracy is required atmospheric refraction makes high Accuracy.

The reader is expected to know simple topographical field astronomy, and sun observations are not considered. This diagram should be as simple as possible, should consist wholly of triangles without any redundant lines, and be such that each station is well fixed by lines from nearby points intersecting at a good angle. Variation of gravity with height.

If heavy dew is undisturbed, the correct image disappears, leaving only the wrong one, so the prism should occasionally be wiped. Oceans constitute a defect, and so are recorded with negative sign, and their is only 0” per feet of depth on account of their being filled with salt water.


In both cases the sign needs care, and is best confirmed by a rough diagram in the gsodesy book. This averages out random errors of reading. Scale and bearing over rectangular coordinates.

This may be an inscribed brass plug, but where and to be stolen a Two marks mark cut on rock or a large stone is better. Copies should be made, checked geoodesy the angle book, and sent to a safe place as often as possible.

The angle bomfor each station and every other is independently measured. In easy country it may be possible to decide on the lay-out with 95 per cent, certainty without a visiting the groimd.

The value of O—D is only exactly determinate if g is known at every point on Aa and Bb, but in practice simplification is possible since O—D is not very great. Smith effect of wind on base measurementfor information on the subjects stated. Of the above, a6c, idand e, i are required at every and c, 2bomvord, 3 e, 2 to e, 6 should be verified at every but seldom need correction: Simultaneous adjustment of a level net. This is sub iii and iv.

Circumstances have caused geodesy to overlap to some extent with what might reason- ably be described as geophysics. The adjustment of a system of geodetic triangulation The Indian method of It is worth remarking that if the existence of this equatorial flatten- ing firmly established, there will stiU be little point in stating that the geoid is a tri-axial figure, since other low-degree harmonics are equaUy hkely to be present.

Preliminary The routine of measurement. Minute subdivision of compartments is the easy and accurate way, but is slow. Deviations computed on Hayford’s hypothesis. Movements of the support. Programme of field movements. The prismatic astrolabe has been designed for more accurate work, or for more frequent use.

A all the measures taken on one pointings are generally made in pairs, pair may be enough, but in bad conditions more may be good rule is that if the pair differ by more than 2″ 1″ as readanother pair is needed. This definition of geodesy conforms closely to the range of activity of the International Geodetic Association.


This abstract ensures full programme of measures and zeros, it shows broken rounds, and reveals blunders or inaccuracies.

Angles are then independently measured and every other station. With all Oboe presents more difficult control RADAR 31 these systems haze and cloud are no obstacle, but the line between ground station and aircraft bomcord otherwise be clear, and a wave-length longer than that of Gee-H, such as is enabled by diffraction or otherwise to follow an indirect path round the curve of the earth, would hold out little hope of accuracy.

If this circle is too large, adjustment is required. In the the trouble tion of of P its procedure now proposed the observed angle at P, after correction by 3. In the twentieth century they have The been replaced by smaller instruments such as the Troughton and Simms inch or the Parkhurst 9-inch. The adjustment of the prismatic astrolabe is ery simple as follows: Polaris or a Octantis at any hour angle.

Signals used in India for the above are described in [19], pp.

The heights of high and low water at these times can also be recorded. A note should be made of any star whose record is unsatisfactory on account of wind or other disturbance. Location of mass anomalies.
