To make effective use of our map requires at least 37 "recent" Y-chromosome markers rather than the 12 ancient ones revealed by basic haplogroup tests, and SNP or subclade identification. Popular Perceptions and misperceptions "Racialist" descriptions of perceived "racial" characteristics of so-called sub-races Pontids, Dinarics, Mediterranids, Armenids, Saharids, Arabids, and so forth are still entertained in certain quarters.
The orbit is designed to be a terminator orbit, so that the local time at the nadir point is always either approximately sunset or sunrise.
Figure shows the variation in path length as a function of elevation when the spacecraft is above the local horizon. The path loss due to range is defined by the equation This can be derived through the following: The power density in watts per square meter of an isotropic radiator is given by where r is the radius in meters of the sphere surrounding the isotropic radiator and pt is the transmitter power.
All power emitted by that isotropic radiator will be distributed equally on the surface of the sphere.
A receiving antenna located on the surface of that sphere intercepts total power equal to the power density multiplied by the surface area of the receiving antenna as follows: It can also be shown that a transmitting antenna of effective area At Thesis solar radiation concentrates its gain within a small solid angle has an on-axis gain of where l is the wavelength of the radiation.
The receiving antenna has a gain too. Multiplying we get and this reduces to The distance and frequency-dependent term in the previous equation is the free-space path loss. Inverting it and taking the log generates the path loss equation on the previous page.
The Doppler frequency shift due to the spacecraft - CGS relative motion is derived first by determining the included angle between the spacecraft velocity vector and the spacecraft - CGS orientation vector.
With this angle information, it is a simple thing to calculate the portion of that velocity vector that is parallel to the spacecraft - CGS vector and thus calculate the Doppler shift.
Due to geometry, these beams intersect the earth at approximate angles of Neglecting atmospheric losses, there is less than a 0. Path Loss Variation Due to Atmospheric Effects The Earth's atmosphere varies strongly in temperature, density and composition as a function of altitude.
The primary classification of the regions of the atmosphere is according to the temperature gradient. Radio waves that travel from space to earth encounter four distinct regions.
The first region is outer space itself; the next lower is the ionosphere, next lower is the stratosphere, and finally, where we all live and where all weather exists, the troposphere.
Each layer has characteristics that affect the propagation of radio waves. For our purposes, outer space provides lossless radio wave transmission. The ionosphere exists from to km above the ground.
Here the pressure is low enough that the ultraviolet radiation that impinges on the earth from the sun causes a thin plasma to form as it separates electrons from atoms and molecules. These free electrons can affect a radio wave through effects such as Faraday rotation, reflection and absorption.

PREDICTING SOLAR RADIATION BASED ON AVAILABLE WEATHER INDICATORS by FRANK JOSEPH SAUER A THESIS Presented to . Solar sails (also called light sails or photon sails) are a proposed method of spacecraft propulsion using radiation pressure exerted by sunlight on large mirrors.
A useful analogy may be a sailing boat; the light exerting a force on the mirrors is akin to a sail being blown by the wind. High-energy laser beams could be used as an alternative light source to exert much greater force than would.
