In the second version of the work, he included a map of the Americas. [66] The Piri Reis map drawn by the Ottoman cartographer Piri Reis in 1513, is the oldest surviving map to show the Americas. [67] [68] [69] His map of the world was considered the most accurate in the 16th century. He accepted a clear distinction between the civilized Greeks in the centre of the earth and the barbarians on the world's edges.

Byrd Polar Research Center - Ohio State University Meteorology research at Greenland and the Arctic. Topics include ecological succession, plant-soil interactions, conservation biology, biological invasions and ecosystem consequences, and coral reef ecology. It is possible that each time the land was exposed by the ebbing of the sea a layer was left, since we see that some mountains appear to have been piled up layer by layer, and it is therefore likely that the clay from which they were formed was itself at one time arranged in layers.

Fordyce, Fiona; Plant, Jane; Smith, Barry; Appleton, Don; Johnson, Chris; Smedley, Pauline; Williams, Lorraine. 1999 Environmental geochemistry and health: global perspectives. The text assumes that the reader has a knowledge of the equations of fluid mechanics on a rotating earth and emphasizes the observations and simple physical explanations of them. So far, more than 10,000 volunteers have viewed and classified more than 450,000 satellite images from more than 30 years of tropical storm records, and evidence suggests that consensus estimates from these citizen scientists do as well as or better than automated methods.

It is a revised and completed version of Ptolemy 's Geography, consisting of a list of 2402 coordinates of cities and other geographical features following a general introduction. [128] Al-Khwārizmī, Al-Ma'mun 's most famous geographer, corrected Ptolemy's gross overestimate for the length of the Mediterranean Sea [22] (from the Canary Islands to the eastern shores of the Mediterranean); Ptolemy overestimated it at 63 degrees of longitude, while al-Khwarizmi almost correctly estimated it at nearly 50 degrees of longitude.
