Geometric Searching In Extended CSG Models : Application to Solid Modeling and Viewing
In this paper, the CSG representation scheme is augmented with the 'cartesian product.' The sweep method of generating solids is encompassed by this 'Extended CSG' formalism. The point inclusion problem encountered in the area of geometric searching in computational geometry is discussed in the context to solid models represented by 'extended CSG.' A simple algorithm to solve it that has a time complexity O(n), where n is the number of primitives, is presented. Allowing for preprocessing and ext

A dilation is a non-rigid transformation, which means that the original and the image are not congruent. They are, however, similar figures. This video demonstrates how to perform dilations. (2:25)
Winter Field Lab: Snow Hydrology
This field activity may be implemented during late winter or early spring when things have not quite thawed. Students collect their own data from a snowpack, including measuring water equivalent, identifying types of snow metamorphism, finding evidence of precipitation patterns, and judging possible snowpack hazards. Back in the lab, students evaluate their data, draw conclusions, and make a report. This activity is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level geohydrology courses.
USGS Techniques of Water-Resources Investigations: Frequency Curves
This 21-page pdf file is Book 4, Chapter A2 of a series of manuals on techniques and procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. It describes procedures for preparing frequency curves from samples of hydrologic data. It also discusses the theory of frequency curves, compares advantages of graphical and mathematical fitting, suggests methods of describing graphically defined frequency curves analytically, and emphasizes the correct interpretations of
