Vulnerability index - Wikipedia

A vulnerability index is a measure of the exposure of a population to some hazard. Typically, the index is a composite of multiple quantitative indicators that via some formula, delivers a single numerical result. Through such an index "diverse issues can be combined into a standardised frameworkmaking comparisons possible". For instance, indicators from the physical sciences can be combined with social, medical and even psychological variables to evaluate potential 

Climatic regions of India - Wikipedia

A long stretch of land situated to the south of Tropic of Cancer and east of the Western Ghats on its Leeward Side experiences this climate. It includes the Bayalu Seeme region in Eastern Karnataka, the Kongunadu and Pandya Nadu regions of Western Tamil Nadu, Rayalaseema region of Western Andhra Pradesh and the Marathwada region of Central Maharashtra.This area receives minimal rainfall due to being situated in the rainshadow area.

Climate - Wikipedia

climate is the statistics of weather over long periods of time. It is measured by assessing the patterns of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. climate differs from weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region. A region's climate is generated by the climate system, which has five 

Hockey stick graph - Wikipedia

Variations on the "composite Plus Scale" (CPS) method continued to be used to produce hemispheric or global mean temperature reconstructions. From 1998 this was complemented by climate Field Reconstruction (CFR) methods which could show how climate patterns had developed over large spatial areas, making the reconstruction useful for investigating natural variability and long term oscillations 

Kerrobert - Wikipedia

In 1968 the Kerrobert High School was renamed the James Charteris composite High School. James Charteris had worked at the Kerrobert School Unit Board for 22 years. The JCCS (James Charteris composite School) schooled grade 7-12 until 1989, when Mary Rodney School closed down and grades K-6 were incorporated into JCCS. At this time, the school was again renamed, becoming Kerrobert composite School or KCS. At one time, the school's Curling Club included 20 

Climate of Uttar Pradesh - Wikipedia

The climate of Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) is primarily defined as humid subtropical with dry winter (CWa) type with parts of Western U.P. as semi-arid (BS) type. Alternatively, some authors refer to it as tropical monsoon. Variations do exist in different parts of the large state, however the uniformity of the vast Indo-Gangetic Plain forming bulk of the state gives a predominantly single climatic pattern to the state with minor regional variations. U.P. has a climate of extremes. With temperatures

climate[edit]. This place has a composite climate with very hot during summers and very cold during winters. Relative humidity remains about 40-50%.

Arctic Satellite Composite Project - Wikipedia

The Arctic Satellite composite Project, a grant funded by the Arctic Sciences division of the National Science Foundation (NSF), is a project dedicated to developing satellite composite images, of various wavelengths, over the Arctic polar region of the globe. The project, based out of the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) at the University of Wisconsin, is headed by Principal Investigator (PI) Dr. Matthew Lazzara, with assistance from co-PI Shelley Knuth. Since the project's 

Climate of Lahore - Wikipedia

Lahore features a five-season semi-arid climate (K?ppen climate classification BSh)(from another source: composite monsoon climate) with five seasons: foggy winter (15 Nov – 15 Feb) with few western disturbances causing rain; pleasant spring (16 Feb – 15 April); summer (15 April – June) with dust, rain storms and heat wave periods; rainy monsoon (July – 16 September); and dry autumn (16 September –14 November). The hottest month is June, where average highs routinely 

Allen's rule - Wikipedia

A rectangular prism that is two cubes wide, one cube long and four cubes tall will have a volume of 8 units<sup>3</sup> and a surface area of 28 units<sup>2</sup>. A composite cube that is two cubes wide, two cubes long and two cubes high will have the same volume of 8 units<sup>3</sup> but a surface area of only 24 units<sup>2</sup>. In cold climates, Allen's rule predicts that animals should have comparatively low ratios of surface area to volume. Because animals in cold climates need to conserve as much heat as possible,&nbsp;

Tropical monsoon climate - Wikipedia

A Tropical monsoon climate is a type of climate that corresponds to the K?ppen climate classification category "Am". Tropical monsoon climates have monthly mean temperatures above 18 °C in every month of the year and feature wet and dry seasons, as Tropical savanna climates do. Tropical monsoon climates however features its driest month seeing on average less than 60 mm but more than 100 – [total annual precipitation {mm}/25] of precipitation. <sup>:200–1</sup> This latter fact is in&nbsp;

Saidnagar - Wikipedia

climate[edit]. Saidnagar has a composite climate, with temperatures high in summer and low in winter. Relative humidity remains about 40-50%. The climate of Orai district is characterized by a hot summer and general dryness, except for rainfall during the southwest monsoon season. The year has four seasons. The cold season lasts from December to February; January's minimum temperature is 7.1 C. The hot season is from March until the first week of June.

Climate of Delhi - Wikipedia

The climate of Delhi is an overlap between monsoon-influenced humid subtropical (K?ppen climate classification Cwa) and semi-arid (K?ppen climate classification BSh), with high variation between summer and winter temperatures and precipitation. Delhi's version of a humid subtropical climate is markedly different from many other humid subtropical cities such as Sao Paulo, New Orleans and Brisbane in that the city features dust storms (something more commonly seen in a desert&nbsp;

Delamination - Wikipedia

Delamination is a mode of failure for composite materials and steel. In laminated materials, repeated cyclic stresses, impact, and so on can cause layers to separate, forming a mica-like structure of separate layers, with significant loss of mechanical toughness. Delamination also occurs in reinforced concrete structures subject to reinforcement corrosion, in which case the oxidized metal of the reinforcement is greater in volume than the original metal. The oxidized metal therefore&nbsp;
