Altitude Adjustment from the Author: Mary Beth Baptiste. Aware that her youth is slipping by, Mary Beth Baptiste decides to escape her lackluster, suburban life in coastal Massachusetts to pursue her lifelong dream of being a Rocky Mountain woodswoman. To the horror of her traditional, ethnic family, she divorces her husband of fifteen years, dusts off her wildlife biology degree, and flees to Moose, Wyoming for a job at Grand Teton National Park. In these rugged mountains, unexpected lessons from nature and wildlife guide her journey as she creates a new life for herself. Set against the dramatic backdrop and quirky culture of Jackson Hole, this beautifully written memoir is a thoughtful, often humorous account of a woman’s bumbling quest for purpose, redemption, and love through wilderness adventure, solitude, and offbeat human connections.

Altitude Adjustment from the Author: Emily Eddins. Be careful what you wish for - you just might get it. After dreaming for years about living in a beautiful resort town, Emily Eddins and her husband moved in a post 9/11 panic from Washington, D.C., to peaceful Truckee, a small mountain town in California. They quickly learned that their dreams may have been misguided. Altitude Adjustment is a collection of humorous vignettes that reveal Emily's wry take on life in a quirky ski town. This modern-day cautionary tale details a series of athletic and social slip-ups that Emily never could have imagined before moving to her winter wonderland. A marginally sporty, uptight urbanite, Emily was shocked to discover she could not compete physically or socially in a culture that places a premium on outdoor fitness above all else. Anyone who has contemplated making the move from big city life to a small town can appreciate the author's experience of loneliness, anxiety and self-doubt in her new community of 14,000 residents. After all, it's not easy to fit in when you're a 30-something fresh from the asphalt jungle. Emily Eddins spent a decade joining and quitting baby groups and volunteering at her children's schools before publishing Altitude Adjustment, which took one year to write and nine years to edit. Three of the essays have appeared elsewhere: The Louisville Review, Forge and Toad Suck Review. Emily's work also has been printed in a range of literary publications including The Willow Review, Rio Grande Review and Front Porch. She and her husband live in Northern California with their three children.

An Alternative Method Of Computing Altitude Adjustment Corrected Geomagnetic Coordinates As Applied To Igrf Epoch 2005 from the Author: . An updated set of altitude adjusted corrected geomagnetic coordinates has been calculated. The coordinates are based on the 10th generation IGRF model coefficients for Epoch 2005. The corrected geomagnetic coordinates at ground level are available as a lookup table, and a corresponding set of spherical harmonic coefficients for use in computing altitude adjusted corrected geomagnetic coordinates at various altitudes (after Baker and Wing [1998]) are also available. Both products are geared towards replacing the tables and coefficients used in Hein and Bhavnani [1996]. An alternative algorithm is introduced that assists in solving discontinuity problems found near the South Atlantic Anomaly and the dip equator when calculating geomagnetic coordinates from a geographic coordinate basis.

The Nexstar User S Guide from the Author: Michael Swanson. Michael Swanson’s online discussions with literally thousands of NexStar owners made it clear that there was a desperate need for a book such as this – one that provides a complete, detailed guide to buying, using and maintaining NexStar telescopes. Although this book is highly comprehensive, it is suitable for beginners – there is a chapter on "Astronomy Basics" – and experts alike. Celestron’s NexStar telescopes were introduced in 1999, beginning with their first computer controlled "go to" model, a 5-inch. More models appeared in quick succession, and Celestron’s new range made it one of the two dominant manufacturers of affordable "go to" telescopes.

Dressing For Altitude from the Author: Dennis R. Jenkins. "Since its earliest days, flight has been about pushing the limits of technology and, in many cases, pushing the limits of human endurance. The human body can be the limiting factor in the design of aircraft and spacecraft. Humans cannot survive unaided at high altitudes. There have been a number of books written on the subject of spacesuits, but the literature on the high-altitude pressure suits is lacking. This volume provides a high-level summary of the technological development and operational use of partial- and full-pressure suits, from the earliest models to the current high altitude, full-pressure suits used for modern aviation, as well as those that were used for launch and entry on the Space Shuttle. The goal of this work is to provide a resource on the technology for suits designed to keep humans alive at the edge of space."--NTRS Web site.
