Galileo Galilei : first physicist

The clinical recommendations of Galileo Galilei are pivotal to our knowing of the legislation of the flora and fauna. Drawing on his assorted reports in philosophy, arithmetic, mechanics, track, astronomy, and engineering, Galileo built progressive theories that completely replaced the disciplines of physics, arithmetic, astronomy, and know-how.

Frameworks for Modeling Cognition and Decisions in Institutional Environments: A Data-Driven Approach

This publication bargains with the theoretical, methodological, and empirical implications of bounded rationality within the operation of associations. It makes a speciality of judgements made lower than uncertainty, and offers a competent technique of wisdom acquisition for the layout and implementation of decision-support structures.

The Five Biggest Ideas in Science

2) Undulations become more extreme (zonal index weakens). (3) Undulations become still more extreme, so that flow is mainly longitudinal (meridional). (4) Flow has broken into isolated cells (zonal index at its weakest). Although the Rossby waves are fairly stable, from time to time they break down in a sequence of steps illustrated in the drawing. This happens when the jet stream and the westerly winds around it are to the north of their usual position. The sequence is called the index cycle, because the upperatmosphere westerly winds are called zonal and their strength is known as the zonal index.

El Niño—or ENSO (El Niño–Southern Oscillation) to give it its scientific name—happens periodically. The first recorded instance was in El Niño At intervals of between two and seven years, the weather changes across much of the Tropics and especially in southern Asia and western South America. The weather is drier than usual in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, eastern Australia, northeastern South America, the Horn of Africa, East Africa, Madagascar, and in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent.

During a warm PDO phase, winter and spring temperatures are higher than normal in northwestern North America, but cooler in the southeastern United States. Winter and spring rainfall is above average in the southern United States and Mexico, but the northwest and Great Lakes regions are relatively dry. There is less snow than usual and less risk of flooding in the northwest. Cool PDO phases produce the reverse of these. Because the full PDO cycle is so long, there were only two during the past century.
