Special features of the radar characteristics of thunderstorm clouds( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The article treats the problem of identification of regions with intense thunderstorm activity against the background of the general field of cumulonimbus clouds. The radar criteria of thunderstorm clouds are indicated with allowance for the dynamics of their development. (Author)
Calculation of the magnetic hyperfine structure of spectral lines with allowance for the finite size of the atomic nucleus and a study of the density of nuclear magnetism( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A formula is derived for the correction of the hyperfine structure constant owing to the fact that nuclear magnetism differs in nature from a point magnetic dipole. A possible form of the angular part of the magnetic density is examined for a specified radial part of the density of nuclear magnetism. These angular parts are phenomenologically defined and are able to make a contribution to the magnetic hyperfine structure constant. This contribution is required to close the gap between theory and experiment for the atoms: He3, Li6, Na22, and Na23

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General ideas about the seasonal and daily variations of the concentration, intensity, and other characteristics of echoes are formulated on the basis of various radar methods of investigating reflecting objects and information is acquired on the movement, structure, and form of the echo sources. These are used to construct a physical model of the observed phenomena. (Author)
RADAR ECHO CHARACTERISTICS OF CLOUDS( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manual on short-term prediction of ionospheric geomagnetic storms and radio-propagation forecasting service by R. A Zevakina( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main features of ionospheric-geomagnetic storms and their probable causes are reviewed. Disturbances in short-wave radio propagation during such storms are discussed. The principles of short-term prediction of ionospheric-geomagnetic storms are summarized and all kinds of Izmiran's forecasts are described. The application of these forecasts and current ionospheric data to calculation of usable radio propagation frequencies is explained. This Manualiis of interest to radio-communication operators as well as to geophysicists dealing with this field of science. (Author)
Improvement in the theoretical determination of the fine structure of terms of atomic species of boron, carbon, and nitrogen type( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The state of theoretical determination of the fine structure of light atoms is described. It is shown that the approximation of the two-electron states model must be used when the calculation of the fine structure is refined on the basis of a multiconfiguration approximation. The expression for the matrix elements of spin-dependent interactions is derived for the case of two unfilled shells and specialized for the case where one of the shells is filled. Expressions are found for the interaction matrix elements between two equivalent p, d and f electrons and a filled s shell. The results of determining the fine structure of boron, carbon, and nitrogen are given. Results have been improved by using the multiconfiguration approximation on the basis of the two-electron states model
Configuration interaction in the carbon atom by A. P I︠U︡t︠s︡is( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interaction of the 1s(2)2s(2)2P(2), 1s(2)2p(4), 1s(2)2s(2)2p3p and 1s(2)2s2p(2)3s configurations of the carbon atom are studied theoretically. The wave functions of the whole atom for these configurations are stated. The matrix elements of energy are expressed through one-electron wave functions. Using one-electron wave functions computed by the method of the self-consistent field without exchange, the matrix elements of energy are computed as diagonal matrix elements and as matrix elements connecting different configurations of the same parity. Secular equations are solved for each type of term of the above mentioned configurations. (Author)
Relation between the number of thunderstorms and the amount of sferics that produce a field strength greater than a given level( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relation between the number of thunderstorms over the European continent and the amount of sferics that create a field strength greater than a given level is examined. The sferics were recorded in Voyeykovo and Odessa. (Author)
Theoretical study of transitions with different types of coupling using the nitrogen atom as an example( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A theoretical study is made of transitions of the type '2p(2) (3P) 3d(2S+1)Lf to 2p(2) (3P) 4fL (K) F' with the application of both LS0-coupling and J0L-coupling for the configuration 2p(2)4f

THE BOTTOM RELIEF OF THE BERING SEA by G. B Udint︠s︡ev( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Bering Sea is a deep-water sea with a maximum depth of 4420 m in Kamchatskiy Proliv and somewhat lesser depths (4151 and 4096 m, as far as is known) in the deep trough of the sea. The Bering Sea is much deeper than the shallow seas along the continental shelf. This is the deepest sea in the Far East; its maximum depth is 751 m greater than the corresponding depth of the Sea of Japan (3669 m) and 1046 m greater than that of the Sea of Okhotsk (3370m). In the region north of Kamchatskiy Proliv, the bottom rises in the form of a sill, whose depth does not exceed 3589 m. The main feature of the Bering Sea is its division into two distinct parts: a vast shallow water area with depths less than 200 m and a deep basin with depths greater than 3000 m

Forecasting the nocturnal temperature variation of the atmospheric surface boundary layer( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It is proposed that the method of forecasting the nocturnal temperature variation of the atmospheric surface boundary layer be refined by taking into account the prior temperature variation. The examination first covers the general case, where the prior temperature variation at the level of the instrument shelter is given as an arbitrary function of time in agreement with observational data. Next, it is shown that for practical purposes, the representation of the prior temperature variation can be confined to a periodic function, and a solution to the problem is given for this case. The resulting solution is taken as the basis for a system of calculation that is sufficiently convenient for operational use in the weather station network and at the weather office. (Author)
SOME MEANS OF CONTROLLED CLIMATE( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The diurnal variation of the absolute humidity in the atmosphere surface boundary layer. by I. I Solomatina( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first section of this paper contains an analysis of experimental data obtained during special observations at the Koltushi station during the summers of 1957 and 1958. The second contains a theoretical solution of the problem of the diurnal variation of humidity, using the equation of eddy diffusion of water vapor. The eddy coefficient is assumed to be both height- and time-dependent. An example is given of the calculation of the diurnal variation of humidity, and the computational and experimental results are compared. (Author)
Some anomalies in the study of ionospheric drifts( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The ionosphere is irregular in its usual state: it consists of ionized formations-irregul rities. There is a wide range in the dimensions of these formations; hey rift regularly, ch ng randomly and disp rse. T HI REPORT CONCERNS SEVERAL ANOM LOUS FEATURES IN THE BEHAVIOR OF AN IRREGULAR IONOSPHERE WHICH MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO HYPOTH SIZ THE DYNAMICS OF THE LATTER AND TO CONCENTRATE ON THE IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF THE INVESTIGATIVE METHOD. This work is based on the tudy of large ionospheric irregularities made during the IGY program for the period January, 1957 - January, 1958. (Author)
