pretiosum isolines from Irvine, California, USA, from a site with Mediterranean climate.
In the continuous shear zone, the stress isolines in the particles and matrix are dense and the maximum stress lies in it.
Almost complete coincidence of the isolines for the graphs [M.sub.s] = f (Ni, Co, Zn) and [H.sub.r] = f (Ni, Co, Zn) makes it possible to assume that the main factor determining the ferrite magnet is the cation distribution over the sublattices with allowance for the concentration of diamagnetic ions.
Figure 12 shows the isolines for the point safety factor of the rock mass around the midsection in the collapse tunnel section after the collapse.
Caption: Figure 5: Vertical cross section along 116.5[degrees]E of equivalent potential temperature black solid lines, unit: K the blue line is the isoline of 345-K, horizontal winds (wind barbs), temperature advection (red dashed lines: >0[degrees]C, green dashed lines: <0[degrees]C), relative humidity (shaded, unit: %).
Contour plots of (a) [absolute value of ([E.sub.[rho]])] and (b) [absolute value of ([E.sub.z])] versus [rho] and z, computed for [[sigma].sub.1]=1 mS/m and [[epsilon].sub.1]=3 [[epsilon].sub.0] by applying the proposed approach (solid isolines).
From the comparison of all VCM models it was concluded that data from the first and third levellings influenced the isolines of the VCMs to decline in a SW-NE direction (VCM models based on the VVs of the combinations 1-2-3 and 1-3), whereas data from the second and especially fourth levellings influenced the isolines to decline in a more W-E direction (combinations 1-2-4, 2-3-4 and 2-4).
First: the data of two weather stations have been used to calculate the temperature coefficient (T) and the mean annual rainfall (H); creation Isolines by using the function Interpolation in Arc Toolbox, then subjected the resulting data to equation (No.
While isoline maps of climate change present abstract ideas that may confuse viewers, filled variants of these maps use color in a way that may enhance engagement particularly when depicting temperature change.
In the first step, we give the initial geopotential isolines and the geostrophic wind field in Figure 1.
