It was a purely scientific research party sent out by my father's father, the Jeddak of Helium, to rechart the air currents, and to take atmospheric density tests," replied the fair prisoner, in a low, well-modulated voice.
During the 65-minute flight, the radiosonde transmitted data on a variety of atmospheric conditions including humidity, temperature, wind speed and direction, dew point, barometric pressure and atmospheric density, as well as trajectory data such as latitude, longitude, altitude and flight path.
After analyzing how raindrops leave imprints in lab experiments, Sam's team concluded in 2012 in Nature that atmospheric density in the late Archean was probably no more than double today's.
That signal is bent in the Earth's atmosphere, and the low-Earth orbit satellite can calculate atmospheric density based on the angle of the bend.
While the measurements ensure that GOCE remains ultra-stable in its low orbit to collect ultra-precise measurements of Earth's gravity, atmospheric density and vertical winds along its path can be inferred from the thruster and accelerometer data.
The increase in atmospheric density caused by the carbon-dioxide also would amplify some effects of the changes caused by the tilt.
Other sessions were devoted to atmospheric density analysis; satellite constellations and formation flying; trajectory design and planetary mission studies; orbit determination and tracking; attitude dynamics, determination, and control; atmospheric re-entry guidance and control; spacecraft guidance, navigation, and control; low thrust mission and trajectory design; dynamics and control of large space structures; trajectory optimization; space debris and conjunction analysis; orbital dynamics, perturbations, and stability; and earth orbital and planetary mission studies.
Possibly the bedforms on the volcanoes formed un der a different Martian climate in the past, when atmospheric density was greater, but I'm not sure that's the case because you can see evidence that a lot of the mantle appears to be fairly recent.
Jonestown Radio, 2004-2005, uses the fuzzy atmospheric density of a Claude vista, placing at its center an ivy-entwined pergola that more or less houses an arrangement of tables.
a] is the atmospheric density at the location of the weight, and [[rho].
Giorgione's rendering of this atmospheric density through a t echnique of blended, interpenetrating layers is a product of a synthetic perspective on the natural world, where the visual field is composed not of objects and void, as in previous painting, but as a totality of matter.
Reports of Moonwatch volunteers' observations of the early Sputnik, Explorer, and Vanguard satellites were sent to SAO and processed by scientists, who then determined the satellites' orbits and also derived information about the Earth's upper atmospheric density.
