Excursions to the surface as a component of emergency decompression from air or nitrox saturation exposures by R. G Eckenhoff( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Present equipment capability precludes a pressurized transfer of personnel rescued from a pressurized, distressed submarine using either the Submarine Rescue Chamber (SRC) or the Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV). An unpressurized transfer risks potentially lethal decompression sickness. Experiments were conducted at this laboratory to determine the period of time available for such an unpressurized transfer to be conducted safely, with a minimal risk of decompression disease. Eighteen active duty and reserve Navy divers were saturated on air at each of 3 pressures; 20 psig (45 fswg), 24.5 psig (55 fswg) and 29 psig (65 fswg). Direct release of the pressure was followed by a surface or unpressurized interval of 30, 17 and 10 minutes, respectively, prior to recompression. The data indicate that this procedure is safe, and carries less than a 10% risk of decompression sickness for the intervals examined. Furthermore, the data would predict that excursions to the surface from air or nitrox saturation exposures are safe from depths much greater than previously predicted. (Author)

A commentary on the cuneiform inscriptions of Babylonia and Assyria : including readings of the inscription on the Nimrud obelisk, and a brief notice of the ancient kings of Nineveh and Babylon, read before the Royal Asiatic society by Henry Rawlinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1850 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication released to a wider audience the work on Assyrian inscriptions of Sir Henry Rawlinson (1810-95), who had begun his career in the East India Company in Persia and Afghanistan, where his exceptional linguistic skills were recognised. He had been studying the monumental, trilingual (in Old Persian, Elamite and Babylonian) Behistun inscription of Darius the Great since 1836, and, building on the earlier research of Georg Friedrich Grotefend, delivered a summary of his progress in decipherment to the Royal Asiatic Society early in 1850. He intended to follow it up with a longer book, but was anxious to gain credit for primacy (which was questioned at the time and still remains controversial), and so published this short work in March 1850. It states Rawlinson's theories, and offers a linguistic and archaeological background to his work, along with his interpretation of king lists and other inscriptions

History of the inductive sciences : from the earliest to the present times by William Whewell( )

1 edition published in 1837 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A central figure in Victorian science, William Whewell (1794-1866) held professorships in Mineralogy and Moral Philosophy at Trinity College, Cambridge, before becoming Master of the college in 1841. His mathematical textbooks, such as A Treatise on Dynamics (1823), were instrumental in bringing French analytical methods into British science. This three-volume history, first published in 1837, is one of Whewell's most famous works. Taking the 'acute, but fruitless, essays of Greek philosophy' as a starting point, it provides a history of the physical sciences that culminates with the mechanics, astronomy, and chemistry of 'modern times'. Volume 1 studies Greek physics and metaphysics, attributing their failure to a method that derived its principles from the common use of language. It surveys the state of the physical sciences in the middle ages, and deals with the rise of 'formal' astronomy - based on observation rather than calculation - as exemplified by Copernicus
Essays and reviews by Henry Hill Lancaster( )

1 edition published in 1860 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprising seven essays by learned contributors and controversially advocating a rationalist Christianity, this work became a sensation upon publication in 1860. Frederick Temple (1821-1902), later Archbishop of Canterbury, wrote on the cultural contributions of non-Christians; Roland Williams (1817-70), Professor of Hebrew at Lampeter, questioned Old Testament prophesies; Baden Powell (1796-1850), Oxford Professor of Geometry, challenged belief in miracles and embraced Darwinism; Henry Bristow Wilson (1803-88) questioned literal biblical history; the only lay contributor, Egyptologist Charles Wycliffe Goodwin (1817-78), embraced geology; Mark Pattison (1813-84), tutor at Lincoln College, wrote on the history of rationalist theology; and Benjamin Jowett (1817-93), Oxford Professor of Greek, advocated a historical reading of the Bible. Wilson and Williams were later found guilty of heresy by a Church court, though this was overturned on appeal. For readers interested in the theological controversies of the Victorian era, these essays remain invaluable
