Proximity and preference : problems in the multidimensional analysis of large data sets by Reginald G Golledge( )

15 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does one design experiments for collecting large volumes of data such as those needed for marketing surveys, studies of travel patterns, and public opinion polls? This is a common problem for social and behavioral scientists. The papers in this collection address the problems of working with large data sets primarily from the perspectives of geography and psychology, two fields that share a common quantitative research methodology. After an introductory paper on substantive and methodological aspects of the interface between geography and psychology, the book is divided into three sections
An introduction to spectral analysis by John N Rayner( Book )

9 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamic climatology : basis in mathematics and physics by John N Rayner( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to the concepts behind the popular understanding of climate and global warming. The author provides readers with a survey and reference to the subject to be used before, during and after they delve into the details of statistics, dynamics and thermodynamics."

January temperatures in the Canadian Arctic 1000-500mb. by John N Rayner( )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Climatology as a branch of Geography and even of Meteorology has been mainly a descriptive subject. Hare (1960) has pointed out that only in comparatively recent years has there been an attempt to explain quantitatively how the various parameters of climate evolve and thus to approach the ultimate question of how it is that one climate varies from another. Most of the answers are to be found through Meteorology, and must be, since the tools required for this work have been developed there. The following is an attempt to explain what processes, and of how great a magnitude, cause temperature changes in the layers of the atmosphere below 500 mb."--

Conservation, Equilibrium, and Feedback Applied to Atmospheric andFluvial Processes. Resource Paper No. 15 by John N Rayner( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Intended to supplement undergraduate college geography courses, this resource paper investigates several concepts which are prerequisite to the study of physical geography. The student is provided with a "systems" approach to physical geography, which combines the underlying principles of physics with the contextual application of these principles to the specific domain of physical geography. The particular framework introduced is based upon the idea that nature tends to remain in steady states through the action of internal regulation mechanisms known as feedback. The underlying physical principle is one of conservation: the conservation of mass, energy, and momentum. Examples are given to illustrate these conservation laws and how they ultimately account for the weather and erosion. The general circulation of the atmosphere is described and provided as an explanation for climatic conditions, such as precipitation and wind effects. Fluvial erosion is presented as another example of feedback operations, in which energy is traced from its source in the atmosphere through a number of steps to stream flow. (Author/MLH)
