Medieval chronicles and the rotation of the earth by Robert R Newton( Book )

18 editions published between 1972 and 1994 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main purpose of this work is to obtain and assess a large body of observations of solar eclipses from medieval records (roughly the period from 400 to 1200), and to use the observations in improving our knowledge of the motion of the solar system. Catalogues of various types of data are given in the appendices including but not limited to lunar eclipses, comets, novae, famines, and earthquakes
Ancient astronomical observations and the accelerations of the earth and moon by Robert R Newton( Book )

14 editions published between 1968 and 1994 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Newton discusses and analyses a very large number of ancient and medieval astronomical observations. The objective is the study of the rotation of the Earth and the motion of the Mood during the historical past -- essentially since about 750 B.C

American Catholic higher education in the 21st century : critical challenges( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of its Sesquicentennial celebration, Boston College invited leading Catholic educators to a symposium concerning the future of Catholic higher education in the United States. Participants gathered from October 22-24, 2013, at BC's Connors Family Retreat and Conference Center in Dover, Massachusetts. They discussed four critical issues requiring engagement by Catholic educational leaders: (1) strengthening awareness of and commitment to the Catholic intellectual tradition on Catholic campuses; (2) ensuring the personal and religious formation of students; (3) clarifying the relationship of Catholic colleges and universities to the Church, and (4) identifying and preparing future leaders of Catholic postsecondary institutions. The essays in this volume provided context for the days at Dover, and are intended to spotlight and urge action on critical challenges facing American Catholic higher education today

Analysis of the observational contributions to the error of the navy satellite Doppler geodetic system by William H Guier( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis is made of the observational contributions to the total system error of the Navy's Satellite Doppler Geodetic System. Aside from the error imposed by the limited number of satellites available for analysis, which limits the complexity of the gravity field that can be used, it is concluded that the system error is about 10 meters for the observations from a single satellite pass, and is 5 meters or less for multiple passes

Everyman's Doppler satellite navigation system by Robert R Newton( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a system of navigation by measuring the Doppler shift in the radio transmissions from a near-Earth satellite. The paper describes simple equipment for making the measurements. It also shows that the need for current information which must be supplied to the navigator can be reduced to the reception of a number containing six decimal digits. Finally, it shows that the computations needed for the navigator to obtain a fix can be performed with the aid of tables that can be prepared at least 18 months into the future. Using these tables and a simple slide rule, but no other computational aids, a fix accurate to about 500 meters can be obtained in about ten minutes. More accuracy can be obtained at the expense of time, or time can be saved at the expense of accuracy. (Author)
