As regards the spread of anthropogeomorphological activities. Brown sees their
ever-growing weight resulting from the concentration of Man's activities on small
areas, from the increased efficacy of the tools effecting the natural environments,
and from the increasing population of the world. In 1968, the U.S. National
Academy of Sciences appointed a special commission on geological sciences to
study "the new developments in and potential application of the geological

Terrestrial, orbital and lunar environments are compared from the radio-
astronomical point of view. The terrestrial environment is limited at long waves by
the ionosphere, atmospheric noise and man-made interference. The centimeter
and shorter waves are plagued by atmospheric absorption and radiation. Earth
orbiting radio telescopes may considerably reduce these effects, yet, even then,
the ionospheric and exospheric noise is important at long waves, and man-made
interference ...
