Thompson computations in plane coordinatesand Mr. Horizontal angles can be obon several systems: 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 bmford on the earth is considered to be the centre.

Electric lamps by night, or in poor daylight on heUos for long lines or in bright Nine-inch lines that are not too gepdesy. You must be logged in to Tag Records. Let the accelerations of the support be x and ij as shown, these being periodic. The Shoran system, used in the United States, combines the advantages of both.

The first two might possibly t [45] quotes [46] for affirms experimental proof. In some examples in fact, if no compensation is assumed, the last zone has as large an effect as all the inner zones combined. But it gepdesy these exceptions that exhibit the great value of the theory, for they have enabled it to delimit, or to start delimiting, areas where for reasons not yet known the earth’s crust is in a marked state of non- equilibrium.

An alternative system of computation, known Marc method, is to compute and plot the length of the perpendicular from the trial fixing on to each position line. Where features are very large the second condition may be impracticable, but as a general rule a primary station should be on the highest point within 5 miles.

The angles between adjacent stations in a round are independently measured. Alternatively, subject to certain con- from a suitable skin density determined as below on a lower equipotential or by a combination of skin densities at different depths, and the best guide to the earth’s actual state may be to determine the various possible skin distributions at different depths.


The theory becomes complicated, [], vol. This goes far towards geodwsy the effects of any imperfection in the local clock. Ordinary geodetic triangulation will still be required to break down these long sides, but a rapidly observed radar framework would such work in independent areas, as and make when possible to start required for topo- it graphical purposes, without subsequent trouble arising from the independent origins.

In the twentieth century they have The been replaced by smaller instruments such as the Troughton and Simms inch or the Parkhurst 9-inch. Stars successfully observed should be ticked off in the programme, and a hst should be kept up showing the numbers taken in each quadrant and E and W, to guide the choice of later stars.

Pressure should be read once during a night and temperature about every half-hour. Then the triangles ADX. Computed value of gravity. This formula also makes practically no assumptions about the atmospheric structure. Earth tides have on space have enforced the exclusion of matter which have seen included, notably: Insolubility of the problem.

The single pendulum old type.

Choice of side conditions. Radar is a system of short-wave by which the distance between a ground station and an aircraft, or between two ground stations, is measured by the time taken for a wireless ‘pulse’ to travel from one to the other and back again at known speed.

When the above does not help, magnesium flares may be parachuted from aircraft or projected from ships. Nomford is to cancel the effect of possible strain in the axis bearing, [16]. On a existing structures such as church towers. The horizontal and vertical circles are read in separate micros on either side of the telescope. Geology reveals Section 7.

Programme of field move- 1. Scale values may be got by cahbration against the theodolite’s own circles, or bubbles may be tested in a ‘bubble-tester’ at HQ. Also element of mass, and order of a spherical harmonic.


Secondary circuit is closed for sec. Earth movements 7. Other things being equal it is desirable to use the Hayford or International Spheroid. Astronomical determinations of the Section 2.

Three sets should but if the station is occupied for more than one day, a couple of sets should be observed each day, up to a maximum of two or three. Pivot stations, satellites, and resections of all kinds are best avoided in geodetic triangulation, and the three angles of all triangles should normally be fully observed. Then a This is result. Angle between normal section and geodesic 8. This is the heavy labour. Except where frequent re-standardization is exceptionally difficult, wires are on the whole recommended in preference to tapes, on the grounds that changes of length although annoying can hardly fail to be detected, while errors of a few parts in a million may be caused by wind without any very noticeable A effect.

Secondary breaks when tappet breaks, and instant of transit is the first downward movement of pen. Primary 63 traverse 2. This can be done with the milled head if it is small, but if star images are not reasonably vertically above each other when first seen, re-level with foot-screws and circular bubble, and adjust the latter in its seating if necessary. Frequent references to it will be necessary throughout this chapter, and an outline of it must now be given.

This can only be assured, and that rather by regular and symmetrical spacing of and wireless signals, by regular winding of pendulum comparisons chronometers, and in uniform temperature conditions. Reduction the vertical 7. The period is then a minimum geodesj respect to changes in the latter distance, and so is not affected by them.
