Frequent references to it will be necessary throughout this chapter, and an outline of it must now be given.

As the images approach, the adjustments are further perfected to secure a close passage in the centre of the field, but nothing should be touched within 5 or 10 seconds of the actual passage. This can only be a serious source of error in the very high quality work required for the astronomical station sites variation of latitude. Definitions tion in 3. J limited For short period nutation.

Experience may show that the times of high and low water at a port differ fairly constantly from the times at some HEIGHTS ABOVE SEA-LEVEL other port for which full predictions are made, and that the ranges of the tides at the two places also bear a fairly constant ratio to each and ratios, which should preferably be given and low water and for neaps and springs, can be roughly ascertained by a month’s observations of the times and heights of high and low tide.

Geodesy, Bomford

Final computation of longitude. Run should be made correct to within 1 or 2 seconds per 10 minutes in the mean of all micros on four zeros.


Deviation of the vertical and Laplace’s 3. But the facts are that over gsodesy oceans g—ys is about -[ and on 5,foot To be added the observation of terrestrial magnetism, variation of and any other not strictly geodetic phenomena which his technical training and equipment may make it convenient for him to undertake. At any port there is generally some degree of constancy in the interval between the moon’s transit and the times of high and low water, which a few weeks’ observations can measure, preferably with geodesj figures for springs and neaps.

Also radius of curvature in meridian. Aberration due to the sun’s general motion through respectively.

Radar is a system of short-wave by which the distance between a ground station and an aircraft, or between two ground stations, is measured by the time taken for a wireless ‘pulse’ to travel from one to the other and back again at known speed. In [] for instance, the compartment is first assumed to be at the same height as the station, and a different correction for the difference is then applicable. In other words the RA of a star is the local sidereal time of its transit. Directions or Schreiber’s rounds are impossible.

Vertical attraction at ground-level of compensation.

Take the mean of subdivisions weighted in proportion to area. The quicker a round is finished, the less the risk teodesy the stand i ing.

Geodetically its possible uses are: As described, position hnes are plotted by their intercepts on a ‘horizontal’ time line. Hence the whole J the surface is zero, and as this applies to each mass element of the external masses!


Similarly the other two. Formulae for Potential and Attraction General formulae for attraction. Humidity does not affect the refraction appreciably, and it is not necessary to record it. Curvature of a ray of light. On the other hand, direct comparison between g and y cannot teodesy used for the study of structures representable by lowdegree harmonics unless Stokes’s theorem geoddsy already determined N, have provided all the in which case Stokes’s theorem itself will information about low degree harmonics that gravity can give.

Let the accelerations of the support be x and ij as shown, these being periodic. They were dropped at 8, feet and burned for 4 minutes. See also [], pp.

Except where frequent re-standardization is exceptionally difficult, wires are on the whole recommended in preference to tapes, on the grounds that changes of length although annoying can hardly fail to be detected, while errors of a few parts in a million may be caused by wind without any very noticeable A effect.

Then write down a central equation for any station, not on the exterior perimeter of the figm-e, at which angles have been observed all round the horizon.

With a good programme it is possible to observe fifteen stars an hour in ordinary latitudes, and a 2-hour programme should give an apparent p. General references for Appendix [], [], and V [].
