Second. Edition. Scattering due to randomly distributed small-scale
heterogeneities in the earth significantly changes seismic waveforms of local
earthquakes especially for short periods. Scattering excites long lasting coda
waves after the direct arrival and broadens the apparent duration of oscillation
with increasing travel distance much longer than the source duration time.
Models of propagation through deterministic structures such as those with
horizontally uniform velocity layers ...

The previous chapter provided a historical perspective for the ground segment,
laying out how earth stations were created and evolved into higher forms. As a
radio communication facility, an earth station receives and, in many cases,
transmits a properly formatted signal on a reliable and affordable basis. The first
earth stations were designed as major facilities that could house the necessary
electronic equipment. Like the radio telescopes and tropospheric scatter sites
discussed in ...

And from these measures we conclude that the circumference of the Earth is
123,249,600, and its semi-diameter 19,615,800 Paris feet, upon the supposition
that the Earth is of a spherical figure. “ In the latitude of Paris a. heavy body falling
in a second of time describes 15 Paris feet, 1 inch, 11,,- line, as above, that is,
2,173% lines. The weight of the body is diminished by the weight of the ambient
air. Let us suppose the weight lost thereby to be , ,3“, part of the whole weight ;
