1.77 Water Quality Control (MIT) 1.77 Water Quality Control (MIT)

Description

The course material emphasizes mathematical models for predicting distribution and fate of effluents discharged into lakes, reservoirs, rivers, estuaries, and oceans. It also focuses on formulation and structure of models as well as analytical and simple numerical solution techniques. Also discussed are the role of element cycles, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus, as water quality indicators; offshore outfalls and diffusion; salinity intrusion in estuaries; and thermal stratification, eutrophication, and sedimentation processes in lakes and reservoirs. This course is a core requirement for the Environmental MEng program.

12.753 Geodynamics Seminar (MIT) 12.753 Geodynamics Seminar (MIT)

Description

In this year's seminar, we will embark on a scientific journey through some of the most controversial topics about the origin and formation of our home planet. This journey will take us to other planetary bodies - even to other solar systems - as we immerse ourselves in observations and theories from the microscopic to the universe scale. The seminar will be organized around three broad questions: How was the Earth formed? What did early Earth look like? When did living organisms first appear on Earth? Experts in meteorites, geology of other planets, thermodynamics and tracers of living organisms, and theories of formation and evolution of planets, including early atmosphere and oceans, will come to WHOI and help us address these questions.

Launch party of the 'Kosmaj'

Description

View of the launch party of the ?Kosmaj?, taken before her launch at the North Sands shipyard of Sunderland Shipbuilders Ltd, 18 August 1977 (TWAM ref. DS.JLT/4/PH/2/7). She was built for Jugoslavenska Oceanska Plovidba BB, Yugoslavia. The image includes performers in traditional folk costume. Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a selection of images from its Sunderland shipbuilding collections. The set has been produced to celebrate Sunderland History Fair on 7 June 2014. It's a reminder of the thousands of vessels launched on the River Wear and the many outstanding achievements of Sunderland?s shipyards and their workers. These photographs reflect Sunderland?s history of innovation in shipbuilding and marine engineering from the development of turret ships in the 1890s through to the design for SD14s in the 1960s. The Sunderland shipbuilding collections are full of fascinating stories. Some of these are represented in this set, such as the ?Rondefjell?, launched in two halves on the River Wear by John Crown & Sons Ltd and then joined together on the River Tyne. The set also shows the vital part that Sunderland?s shipbuilding industry played during the First World War. William Doxford & Sons Ltd built Royal Naval destroyers such as HMS Opal, which served in the Battle of Jutland, while other yards constructed cargo ships to help keep these shores supplied.

Climatic and Oceanic Influences on Human Ecology

Description

The Module is organised around three parts, namely, Oceanography and Climatology/ Meteorology’. In the third part we shall study Climate Change in some detail – what the research currently tells us, and the intervention of human agency. Each part is broken into several units which build sequentially and progressively, and earlier ones have concepts and content which will be revisited from time-to-time and in increasing complexity. Given the essential connectedness of environmental systems, cycles and webs, we are dealing with complexity as it manifests in different ways, places, times and scales. When the human element is added to this, actually trying to discern the precise nature of a particular problem, and raising it with a view to understanding, solving, managing, and/or containin
