Köppen, Wladimir


(also Vladimir Petrovich Keppen). Born Sept. 26 (Oct. 8), 1846, in St. Petersburg; died June 22, 1940, in Graz, Austria. Meteorologist and climatologist. Son of P. I. Keppen.

Köppen studied at St. Petersburg University. He worked at the Main Physics Observatory in St. Petersburg from 1872 to 1875 and at the German Naval Observatory in Hamburg from 1875 to 1919. He lived in Graz from 1919 to the end of his life. Köppen’s principal works are devoted to climatology, general and synoptic meteorology, and marine meteorology. He was also a pioneer in aerological research. He studied the climatic conditions of many regions of the earth, particularly the oceans, the frequency and movement of cyclones and anticyclones, the effect of solar activity on weather and climate, and climates of the past. Köppen is especially well known for his classification of the world’s climates, on which he worked from 1900 to 1920. Along with the Russian climatologist A. I. Voeikov and the Austrian meteorologist J. Hann, Köppen exerted a determining influence on the development of climatology at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.

The author examines how German and Austrian writers like Thomas Mann, GEnter Grass, Ingeborg Bachmann, Thomas Bernhard, Wolfgang Koeppen, Heinrich B|ll, Elfriede Jelinek, and Hans-Ulrich Treichel used music to develop methods to respond to the catastrophe of World War II and the Nazi past and testify to the horror and trauma, crimes and suffering, and feelings of shame and guilt.
The climate classification, according to Koeppen (1948), was type 'Cwa', and the geographic coordinates ranged from 42[degrees] 52' W to 42[degrees] 50' W longitude and from 20[degrees] 44' S to 20[degrees] 47' S latitude.

After all, the strength of the book--and the reason why it's an important contribution to Holocaust studies--has much to do with how deftly Franklin works with the ongoing critical discussions of her subjects, who range from Tadeusz Borowski, Primo Levi, Elie Wiesel, and Jerzy Kosinski to Wolfgang Koeppen, W.
Piensa que alguien le ha robado algo pero se dice que ha sido el mismo, pues considera que los anos que ha invertido en su proyecto han sido una perdida, cosa que, por supuesto, puede discutirse, y se pregunta --aunque lo mas verosimil es que esto no se lo pregunte Rowson sino Koeppen, y que ya tenga una respuesta para ello--si el Tristram Shandy no es, en realidad, un libro sobre el modo en que un acontecimiento de la vida nos conduce a otro y una lectura nos lleva a otra, sin interrupcion posible, y acerca de la forma en que todos caemos en el agujero de la literatura, que carece de fondo, y ya no podemos salir jamas de el.
Another parameter that makes it possible to evaluate tubular function is potassium excretion in urine, as the kidneys regulate their body concentration through mechanisms of control of reabsorption and/or secretion, located in the distal and collecting tubules (STANTON; KOEPPEN, 2009).
