Sea Level Rise Animation in Google Earth
 
06:24
Climate change and increased atmospheric temperatures are predicted to cause a significant rise in sea level over the next 100-200 years. Scenarios that take into account rapid melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet and West Antarctic Ice Shelf warn of sea level rise of greater than 20 ft (6 meters) over the next couple centuries. This animation shows what that level of rise would (which will happen over a long period of time) might look like over a couple seconds. It uses very course scale global elevation data to visualize a rising sea affect and should NOT be considered highly accurate.

London below Sea Level
 
01:37
Visit http://www.youris.com/Environment for more information! Not a week passes by without scientists uncovering further potential consequences of global warming. One effect of climate change may be huge rises in sea level as the ice in the poles melt. A group of European researchers have developed a new way of seeing such a scenario. They weren't focussing on how to predict extreme sea level rise, but rather wanted to understand the how people might react to a higher risk of extreme flooding. Would they build new flood defences or rather retreat to safer areas? An ideal place to test such responses is London.

Lōihi Volcano
 
04:12
Lōihi Seamount is an active volcano built on the seafloor south of Kilauea about 30 km from shore. The seamount rises to 969 m below sea level and is marked by a caldera-like depression 2.8 km wide and 3.7 km long. Three collapse pits or craters occupy the southern part of the caldera; the most recent pit formed during an intense earthquake swarm in July-August 1996. Named Pele's Pit, the new crater is about 600 m in diameter and its bottom is 300 m below the previous surface! Like the volcanoes on the Island of Hawaii, Lōihi has grown from eruptions along its 31-km-long rift zone that extends northwest and southeast of the caldera. During July and early August, 1996, the largest swarm of earthquakes ever observed at any Hawaiian volcano occurred at Lōihi Seamount. In response to this event, an initial cruise was dispatched to Lōihi in early August, and two previously planned cruises sailed in September and October on the R/V Kaimikai-O-Kanaloa (K-O-K). Calm weather and a newly refurbished ship combined to provide excellent conditions for documenting the volcanic, plume, vent, and biological activity associated with this swarm. These cruises conducted a total of 15 PISCES V submersible dives, 41 water sampling operations, and 455 km of SeaBeam surveys, and deployed 40 sonobuoys and one ocean bottom seismometer (OBS). The most obvious result of the activity was the formation of a large summit pit crater similar to those observed at Kilauea. Greatly expanded hydrothermal activity was also observed resulting in the formation of intense hydrothermal plumes in the ocean surrounding the summit. SeaBeam surveys documented the bathymetric changes at Lōihi summit corresponding to the seismic swarm. Pele's Vents, previously the prime locus of hydrothermal activity at a depth of 980m, has collapsed forming a pit crater (Pele's Pit) approximately 600 m in diameter with its bottom 300 m below the previous surface. In 1996, manned submersible exploration with the Pisces V revealed high-temperature hydrothermal fluids issuing from vents in Pele's Pit but it was too hazardous to get close enough for accurate temperature recording. Return dives in 1997 documented water temperatures up to 200°C and in 1998 the hydrothermal fluids had cooled to about 160°C. In the years since then, dives have been conducted on an ongoing basis to monitor activity of the volcano. Nearly 170 submersible dives to the volcano have been conducted by the Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory since 1987.

The Best of: The Kehlsteinhaus (Hitler's Summer House) - Berchtesgaden, Germany
 
05:32
In this video, we visit the Kehlsteinhaus or the "Eagle's Nest" which is known as Hitler's Summer House, just outside Berchtesgaden. The house is 1,834m (6,017ft) above sea level and the views over the valley are incredible. When the clouds aren't covering, it can be nice and warm, but when the clouds cover, it can get rather nippy. It is worth pointing out that Hitler had a specific teahouse built for him, which sits just below the Mooslahnerkopf hill. "The so-called Eagles Nest is often called "Hitler's Tea House," but this is technically incorrect. Hitler did not treat the Kehlsteinhaus as a tea house, and the location he visited daily for afternoon tea was actually the Mooslahnerkopf Teehaus" - http://www.thirdreichruins.com/gutshofteehaus.htm

http://bit.ly/bBxo4A The Nexans Spider is a remote operated vehicle (ROV) used to level the seabed and clear the way for a 1,200-kilometer undersea pipeline to support natural gas collection from the Ormen Lange gas field. It operates at depths of 1,000+ meters below sea level and in below freezing temperatures. LabVIEW and CompactRIO are used to control its very complex hydraulic systems. In addition, their LabVIEW front panel has an advanced 3-D "virtual reality" HMI display of the ocean floor so the operator can maneuver the vehicle in poor lighting conditions (1,000 meters below sea level with sand and dirt flying everywhere). There are three CompactRIO systems located on the deck of the parent ship (floating above it). The first of these performs advanced control algorithms to compensate for the (very extreme) rising and falling seas, keeping constant tension on the cables that tether the Spider (on the ocean floor) to the ship. The second one controls the winch. The third is used to control the power for the Spider's 1,700 horsepower motors.

Cathedral of Saint Sava ( Храм Светог Саве ), Belgrade , Serbia
 
03:31
The Cathedral of Saint Sava (Serbian: Храм Светог Саве or Hram Svetog Save) One of the largest Orthodox churches currently in use.It is the largest in the Balkans and perhaps the world. The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains are thought to have been burned in 1595 by the Ottoman Empire's Sinan Pasha. From its location, it dominates Belgrade's cityscape, and is perhaps the most monumental building in the city. The building of the church structure is being financed exclusively by donations. The parish home is nearby, as will be the planned patriarchal building. The dome is 70m high, while the main gold plated cross is another 12 m high, witch is giving a total of 82 m to the Cathedral of Saint Sava. The peak is 134 m (439.6 ft) above the sea level (64 m [210 ft] above the Sava river); therefore the church holds a dominant position in Belgrade's cityscape and is visible from all approaches to the city. The church is 91 m (298.5 ft) long from east to west, and 81 m (265.7 ft) from north to south. It is 70 m (229.65 ft) tall, with the main gold-plated cross extending for 12 more meters (39.4 ft). Its domes have 18 more gold-plated crosses of various sizes, while the bell towers have 49 bells. It has a surface area of 3,500 square metres on the ground floor, with three galleries of 1,500 m2 on the first level, and a 120 m2 gallery on the second level. The Cathedral can receive 10,000 faithful at any one time. The choir gallery seats 800 singers. The basement contains a crypt, the treasury of Saint Sava, and the grave church of Saint Lazar the Hero martyr, with a total surface of 1.800 m2. The facade is in white marble and granite and, when finished, the inner decorations will be of mosaics. The central dome will contain a mosaic of Christ Pantocrator. To give a sense of the monumental scale, the eyes will each be about 3 meters wide.

It is 7 ft (2 m) above sea level, 118 ft deep, and nearly 2 mi(more than 3km)in circumference with no natural outlet. Avernus was of major importance to the Romans, who considered it to be the entrance to Hades. It gained its name from the Greek word αορνος (originally αϝορνος meaning "birdless", referring to the belief that birds flying over the lake would drop dead from the poisonous fumes that it emitted.The name Avernus was often used by Roman writers as a synonym for the underworld. In Virgil's Aeneid, Aeneas descends to the underworld through a cave near the lake. (more) (less)

20.09.2008 This important megalithic observatory site was discovered in 2001 by archeologist Jovica Stankovski in the northeastern Republic of Macedonia, approximately 30 km from the town of Kumanovo, near the village of Staro Nagorichane. It is situated 1013 m above sea level and covers an area within a 100-meter radius. It is believed that represents an astronomical observatory and a ceremonial place. The site is approximately 3800 years old. Kokino consists of two parts. It includes special stone markers used to track the movement of Sun and Moon on the eastern horizon. The observatory used a method of stationary observation, marking positions of the Sun at the winter and summer solstice, as well as the equinox. The importance of the site, detailed by physicist Gjore Cenev, was confirmed by the U.S. space agency NASA. It appears fourth on the list of old observatories compliled by NASA. 1.

Cameia National Park is a national park in the Moxico province of Angola, located at about 1100 m above sea level. It shares its name with the nearby municipality of Cameia. The Cameia--Luacano road forms the northern boundary of the park with the Chifumage River forming the southern portion of the eastern boundary and the Lumege and Luena rivers the south-western boundary. Much of the park consists of seasonally inundated plains that form part of the Zambezi river basin, with the northern half of the park draining into the Chifumage river. There are also extensive miombo woodlands, similar to those in the Zambezi basin of western Zambia. The park is a sample of nature not occurring elsewhere in Angola. Two lakes, Lago Cameia and Lago Dilolo (the largest lake in Angola) lie outside the park boundaries and both have extensive reedbeds and grassy swamps that are rich in aquatic birds.The area now known as Cameia National Park was established as a game reserve in 1938 and as a National Park in 1957. The wildlife in the park has been almost completely.Area-3,459,461.5 km². Videos kutangar clique Aqui: http://br.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=kutangar

A Look at Organic Indian Coffee
 
01:31
KEAN: The Araku Valley in southern India is one of the best places to grow coffee. There's an area of about 36 square kilometers that is between 600 and 900 meters above sea level where it's grown. Let's see how they do it. STORY: Coffee cultivation here began back in 1898 a British official named Brodi first started to plant the bean. By 1920 rich locals started growing it on their own. Coffee has helped to improve the local economy by leaps and bounds. They were so encouraged that they started to cultivate organic coffee without fertilizers, chemicals or pesticides. The organically grown Coffea Arabica species in this area drew international attention. It won 'Flavor of India-Fine Cup Award' for two years now. Coffea arabica contains less caffeine and is considered to produce better coffee than the other major commercially grown coffee species. Countries like Japan, Norway and other European counties have started showing interest in Indian coffee. The government is also exploring ways to improve the infrastructure and storage facilities for boosting exports. [Jairam Ramesh, Indian Junior Commerce Minister]: "We are going to have a three way agreement between Coffee Board, the ITDA (Integrated Tribal Development Agency) and the Nandi Foundation. I'm coming back to Visakhapatnam on the 2nd January 2009. The Coffee Board will provide the technical assistance, the ITDA will do social mobility of Mahilya Samukhiya's (Lady Village Heads) and identify the areas for coffee cultivation and the Nandi Foundation will provide assistance for marketing both in India as well as abroad." The United States is the largest market for coffee, followed by Germany and Japan. The Nordic countries consume the most coffee per capita, with Finland at the top.

GLOBAL 3000 | Ethiopia - Coffee Under Threat in the Jungle
 
05:42
The popular Arabica coffee variety comes from the mountainous forests of Ethiopia. The wild types of Arabica grow at around 1000 to 1900 meters above sea level. Their resistance to blight and their adaptability make them a valuable resource for the cultivation of new strains of coffee beans. But locals need land to grow food and fields for their livestock to graze. This "hunger" for more land has led to the destruction of ever larger swathes of forest through slash and burn clearances and logging. A project undertaken by the University of Bonn in Germany aims to protect the forests and utilize the genetic diversity of the coffee plants to cultivate new strains for industry.
