30. Climate Sensitivity and Human Population
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) Climate sensitivity is defined as either the temperature change resulting from a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration or the temperature change resulting from a 1W/m2 increase in radiative forcing. There are several different climate sensitivities that take into account different feedbacks in the climate system. The simplest climate sensitivity is black body sensitivity, which does not account for any feedbacks but gi
Inventing Bar Graphs
In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad discovers a bug problem in the Cybrary. They know that something needs to be done to stop the bugs before they eat everything in the Cybrary, so the CyberSquad creates a bar graph to display the number of bugs they found in each room. Ms. Fileshare is concerned about the bug problem until she is shown a different bar graph that shows the number of bugs in each room to be much smaller. The CyberSquad must figure out why the two graph
8.851 Strong Interactions: Effective Field Theories of QCD (MIT)
This is a course in the construction and application of effective field theories, which are the modern tool of choice in making predictions based on the Standard Model. Concepts such as matching, renormalization, the operator product expansion, power counting, and running with the renormalization group will be discussed. Topics will be taken from factorization in hard processes relevant for the LHC, heavy quark decays and CP violation, chiral perturbation theory, non-relativistic bound states in
Journal of nordic archaeological science (JONAS)
The Journal of Nordic Archaeological Science (JONAS) publishes original theoretical and applied papers by experienced and younger researchers within the field of archaeological science. The papers are available free and full-text from this website, which also contains information about the journal. The journal publishes preferably papers from authors based in the NordicBaltic area; all papers are peer-reviewed. The topics range across all aspects of archaeology of Europe and are not limited to
Hacia un Estudio del Protofen?meno Urbano: Rudimentos Anal?ticos para una Aproximaci?n Fenom?nica al
This work outlines the theoretical and methodological framework for the development of analytical rudiments contributing to the registry, cartography and quantification of the urban phenomenon understood not as urban space perception but rather, as human beings perception within urban space. It argues that this approach to urban studies is part of a scarcely explored lineage within the field of urban analysis. One that, much in the same way as the widely used topological/ structural approach, re
Giant Mirrors to Capture the Universe
As crowds cheer on the Arizona Wildcats football team, something amazing is happening within the stadium below. Here in the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab, teams of scientists use a great oven to spin-cast molten glass into the largest, most perfect telescope mirrors in the world.

Portugal em linha
This website is a community website attempting to create cohesion among the more than twohundred million speakers of Portuguese, and it achieves its aim by providing opportunities for interaction. It also introduces contemporary arts and artists, contemporary and classical writing, it directs the readers to online Brazilian papers and online English language newspapers published outside Brazil. This site has been acknowledged as the main instrument of populiarising the language, and it is a par
Medieval Japan and China 800s-1400s
The Far East in the Middle Ages, 1 "Culture and Society in Medieval Japan and China, 800s-1400s" is a ten-minute slide show. The audio is a little uneven, but it contains an excellent overview for older students. Of note is that it explains the difference between Chinese and Japanese cultures and history.
5.62 Physical Chemistry II (MIT)

Mt. Osceola Gulley Summit - time lapse 2/26/12 - Started with bushwhacking then up the gulley. A bit chilly and windy but made it up to the summit by 5 and back out (via East Osceola) by 8:30. Enough snow had been blowing and drifting to cause drifts 10-15 feet high so when you're up on top of the snow you're literally walking on the tops of the trees that are buried in the snow. The descent included about 1000+ vertical feet of butt-sliding, which was a lot of fun (and some slides very fast and a bit scary at times in

Feed-in tariffs for renewable electricity - Hans-Josef Fell, MP
The adoption of the EEG led directly to the phenomenally successful German feed-in tariff policy. The EEG is the foundation for the technological developments in photovoltaics, biogas, wind power and geothermal energy in Germany, which are admired throughout the world. The underlying principle of the EEG has now been copied in dozens of countries, as well as most Australian states and territories.

Lead technological developments to track samples using onli
16.412J Cognitive Robotics (MIT)
Cognitive robotics addresses the emerging field of autonomous systems possessing artificial reasoning skills. Successfully-applied algorithms and autonomy models form the basis for study, and provide students an opportunity to design such a system as part of their class project. Theory and application are linked through discussion of real systems such as the Mars Exploration Rover.
