Applications of Vector Operators for Surface Atmospheric/Oceanic Processes
Vector operations are crucial for the understanding of many processes affecting surface conditions in the atmosphere and the oceans. Gradients, dot and cross products, and the Laplacian of surface variables (e.g., pressure, temperature, moisture, salinity, wind and ocean currents to name a few) are concepts that create considerable angst for students in meteorology and physical oceanography classes. The purpose of this activity is to teach vector concepts within the context of the atmospheric an
Understanding and classifying a stroke
Stroke is the third largest cause of death in the UK after heart disease and cancer. It is also the single leading cause of severe disability in the UK. Classification of stroke is crucial in planning treatment and is a good indication of prognosis This Learning Object helps individuals understand how to make the diagnosis of stroke using the Oxford Stroke classification. It is suitable for any health care professionals involved in the management of stroke but especially doctors and medical stud
Archaeology of Medieval and Tudor Britain
The aim of this course is to provide a broad understanding of the archaeology of Britain in the period c. 1066-1600. Although the bulk of the material will relate to England and Wales, occasional reference will be made to Scotland and Ireland. The course takes a necessarily broad approach to the archaeology of the period. Although the treatment of excavated data will form an important component of the syllabus, other types of evidence will also be considered. For instance, the course will examin
TALAT Lecture 2204: Design Philosophy
This lecture outlines the requirements on load bearing structures with respect to safety against failure; it introduces the design analysis process with methods of verification and partial safety factors; it describes the characteristic of loads and load combinations on structures; it introduces the subject of load and resistance factors in the verification methods; it describes the basic structural design properties of aluminium alloys versus steel. Some background and experience in structural
Sustainable Communities: Research in Action
This core module will enable you to develop a range of key geographical and transferable skills relating to project research and management. You will begin to understand what a professional geographer does through a consultancy based project which will involve interacting with a client (the University) to create real and useful research. This will help instil a sense of professionalism in your work and create high quality outputs. You will also develop an understanding of how businesses and comm

9.036 The Visual System (MIT)
This comprehensive course on the visual system is designed to ground future researchers in the field of visual science and to provide scientists with an excellent basis for using the visual system as a model in research. In this graduate seminar, anatomical, neurophysiological, imaging and behavioral research is examined in an attempt to gain a better understanding of how information is processed in the primate visual system.
Re-conceptualising ICT in geography teaching
This paper is concerned with the ways in which ICT is conceptualised in geography education in England. Our argument is that the way ICT has been conceptualised in school geography is clearly linked to a particular view of geography as a subject, one based on ideas of positivist and empiricist science. Other views of geographical knowledge based on humanist and realist approaches to science have been neglected. In this paper we describe this dominant approach, and suggest how these features are
