Earth scientists often conduct sophisticated computer analysis or go to many of the world's most exotic locations to study Earth phenomena (e.g. Harvard University, Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology Papers, Vol. 47, No. 1. Some geologists’ jobs are to understand these processes. AGRICOLA AGRICOLA is short for Agricultural Online Access, and is a bibliographic database of citations to the agricultural literature created by the National Agricultural Library and its cooperators.

Our Magnetic Modeling project relies on data from the European Space Agency Swarm satellite mission to develop models such as the World Magnetic Model and the Enhanced Magnetic Model. Measuring less than 1/10 inch in diameter, ash may be either solid or molten when first erupted. Arab navigators invented a rudimentary sextant known as a kamal, used for celestial navigation and for measuring the altitudes and latitudes of the stars, in the late 9th century. [97] They employed in the Indian Ocean from the 10th century, [98] They employed it in the Indian Ocean from the 10th century, [98] and it was adopted by Indian navigators soon after, [99] followed by Chinese navigators some time before the 16th century. [100] The invention of the kamal allowed for the earliest known latitude sailing, [98] and was thus the earliest step towards the use of quantitative methods in navigation. [100] This was a universal horary dial invented in 9th century Baghdad.

Given the issue of uncertainty surrounding most prediction models, uncertainty and model performance analysis are part of my research methodology. All reports of volcanic activity published by the Smithsonian since 1968, with a few exceptions that are still being prepared, are available through a monthly table of contents or by searching for a specific volcano. The geology concentration is designed for students with a wide range of professional goals in the sciences, engineering, business, and the arts.
