Réponse à l’écologisme: Comment La Connaissance Permet De Réfuter Les Peurs Entretenues

Face à l. a. désinformation obtenue par l. a. répétition du "prêt-à-penser écologiste" et sa pénétration généralisée dans les écoles, de los angeles maternelle à l'enseignement supérieur, et dans notre règlementation, cet ouvrage suggest un début de réponses evaluations argumentées. Il est grand temps d'abandonner l. a. faith de l'écologisme et les déclamations incantatoires pour nous tourner vers les sciences de l'environnement et de los angeles santé.

This file has been built up by oceanographers at Taunton from analysis of source data for discrete ocean areas. 6 ‘Washing line’ plot Source: Hydrographic Office Profiles for each half-month period in each area analysed so far are stored. However, the task began about five years ago and there are many more areas awaiting analysis. Temperature, salinity and sound velocity profiles are on file, the last having been calculated from temperature and salinity. g. plotting and listing programs. It is planned that this file will eventually contain profiles for about 1000 areas in the North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Mediterranean and Indian Ocean.

Weathership observations. We process all data from the ocean weather ship Cumulus at Station ‘Lima’. These observations are made available to others via the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), which maintains inventories of observations from all weatherships. Smith Because of the variety of computers and data formats in use throughout the world, much effort goes into reading and reformatting exchange data sets. DATA ARCHIVING Data are received from the following instruments: Sippican Mk 2a XBT recorders, Sippican Mk8 XBT recorders, Sippican Mk9 XBT recorders, Bathy-Systems XBT recorders, mechanical bathythermographs; serial observations, Nansen water bottles, Neil Brown CTD probes, BissetBurman STD/STDSV probes, Navitronics S/V probes and Inter-Ocean CTD probes.

This property is evidently required for forecasting and predicting evolution, and (if present) will appear explicitly in the formulation of all model types above, except that it may be intrinsic to a physical model. Thus: δ ζ /δt = δ(uh)/δx – δ(vh)/δy predicts that sea level will be higher at a later time t if the transport h x velocity (u, v) is at present converging. An operational model is well proven and gives results, to those who require them, sufficiently in advance of the time to which they pertain.
