About The Product

Published by means of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Antarctic study Series.

In a 1971 medical Committee on Antarctic study document that reviewed polar contrasts in sea ice, Lyn Lewis and Willy Weeks made the subsequent remark: "People who learn sea ice within the Arctic Basin are frequently asked in the event that they have ever studied ice in Antarctica, and so they solution 'why trouble, it is the usual stuff." Noting this used to be "fortunately precise to a substantial extent," they extra "It is obvious that destiny paintings will rely seriously at the logistics amenities on hand to permit floor observations past the quick ice facet in any respect seasons of the 12 months. of just about equivalent significance often is the improvement of tools and recording gear suited to use within the polar setting" (Lewis, E. L., and W. F. Weeks, Sea Ice: a few Polar Contrasts, in, Antarctic Ice and Water Masses, edited through G. Deacon, medical Committee on Antarctic learn, Cambridge, 23-34, 1971).

Lewis and Weeks made no particular point out of Earth-orbiting satellites, on which the 1st passive microwave sensor turned operational in December 1972. lower than a yr later the large Weddell Polynya used to be saw for the 1st time. maybe greater than the other improvement, this unforeseen characteristic illustrated the aptitude to vastly extend our wisdom of sea ice during the software of spaceborne distant sensing. concurrently, it acted as a catalyst for an important raise within the point of study.

Structure and Approximation in Physical Theories

The current quantity comprises 14 contributions offered at a colloquium on "Structure and Approximation in actual Theories" held at Osnabruck in June 1980. The articles are offered within the revised shape written after the colloquium and for this reason additionally take account of the result of the dialogue on the colloquium.
