INTERESTING FACTS FIGURES AND QUOTES–40

  1. WHAT IS A DOPPLER RADAR?

    By tracking changes in the speed and direction of wind and precipitation, Doppler  radar helps detect when dangerous rotational patterns are developing as precursors to things like tornadoes and hurricanes. The installation of short-range Doppler radar at airports has given air traffic controllers the ability to know when conditions are ripe for microbursts or wind shear or change in wind velocity, a phenomenon that has caused planes to crash at take-off and landing.

    Astronomers have applied the Doppler effect to measure the change in the wavelength of light emitted by a moving star—to show that galaxies are moving away from one another. Meteorologists use the phenomenon to improve their ability to warn of an imminent weather.

    A Doppler Radar Antenna tracks storms. Weather radar tools sense precipitation’s intensity and motion; the information is projected onto maps for the general public, using colours to distinguish different types of precipitation.

  1. Criticism is something we can avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, being nothing—said ARISTOTLE
  2. Get thee to a nunnery” is a play on words. Although a nunnery is a place for pure women who give their body and souls to God, a nunnery also means a whore house. Nunnery has a double meaning. Essentially, Hamlet is telling Ophelia that she is both pure and impure.
  3. When religion and politics ride in the same cart, the whirlwind follows—FRANK HERBERT, US author
  4. I think we can move up from the 7.5% growth which is not enough to employ the 12 million people coming to the labour force every year in good jobs—says RAGHURAM RAJAN. So India needs a higher growth rate and not 5%.
