  • Business Ethics: History Of The Equator Principles Initiative

    Business Ethics Equator Principles Initiative – Case Study HBSC History of the Initiative The year 2002 is a critical year for the Equator banks. It is critical in the sense that these banks convened a meeting in London to discuss the impact their activities on project finance were having on environmental and social related issues. There was a growing concern that the project finance industry was not appropriately involved in making the world a better place to live. This claim, which came from civil groups, tarnished the reputation of the Equator banks, who now responded by convening a resolution meeting to the pressure. The pressure was intensified by the launch of Collevecchio Declaration on Financial Institutions and Sustainability in 2003.…

  • George Hadley's Single-Cell Atmospheric Global Circulation Model

    These winds converge within the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) near the equator at the doldrums (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, 2012) or as described by William Ferrel (1890) “a belt of calms extending around the globe, where not interfered with by abnormal disturbances or forces”. Whereby, warm air rises, a low pressure system forms, clouds and heavy rain are frequent, and wind is often mild (Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, 2013). The air becomes cooler as…

  • Earth Vs Mars Essay

    planet. One entire side of Mars has mountains that are located in the southern highlands. This planet’s same side also consists of craters and erosion. However, Mars’s other side is considered what is referred to as the northern lowland. The planet’s northern lowland area is described as to be broad with smooth series of interconnecting plains. Of these northern lowlands, more than ten percent of the area’s surface is covered by what are known as sand dunes. Each side of Mars, however, presents…

  • Abiotic Factors Influencing The Distribution Of Biomes Case Study

    and Polar Cell. Between these three cells is a dynamic area called the Intertropical Convergence Zone. Persson (2006) tells us that the Hadley Cell is caused by solar energy heating the equator, this causes warm moist air to rise towards the Tropopause dumping rain in terrestrial biomes such as the Tropical Rainforest. After the air has risen and lost most of its moisture it travels along the troposphere whilst being…

  • What Is Differential Heating?

    The wind carries heat from the Equator to the Poles, and from day to the night side and this is where the rotation comes in to help it along. When the atmosphere is thick then the winds are efficient in circulation. This is not the case when it comes to the moon because there is no air and there can 't be any effect on it either. The temperatures on them moon range from very low on the night side and very high on the day side, so there is no moderate level. Greenhouse gases also hold the heat of…

  • Aristotle Final Cause Analysis

    earth has substance (however insignificant in relation to the heavens), therefore earth cannot be a point in the geometric sense. 4. Ecliptic The ecliptic is the path the sun appears to take through the heavens as a result of earth’s orbit. As we spin on our path around the sun, the position the sun occupies against the backdrop of the celestial sphere rotates. In addition to the ecliptic’s celestial implications, as earth’s tilt shifts from summer to winter, the plane of the…

  • Volume Mixing Ratio Lab Report

    Ozone is produced by the breaking apart of an oxygen molecule by solar UV radiation, a photochemical reaction, to form two oxygen atoms. Three of these oxygen atoms then combine to form ozone, O3. As this reaction is reliant on solar UV radiation, it is greatest in areas with larger amounts of radiation, the tropics. However, the ozone layers are found to be thicker at higher latitudes rather than at the tropics. Meridional and downward transport of ozone molecules in the stratosphere carries…

  • Sun Observation Report

    The most important thing on our planet to keep all things running is the sun. It gives off rays that help the plants and trees grow which give us oxygen. Within the twenty-four hour rang we have in a day the sun splits it into two halves; Night and day. However the path of they sun is always changing and is never the same. Just like any other star it rises in the east and sets in the west. As time goes by you begin noticing the sun changes its exact paths. The sun’s path through the sky is…

  • Meiosis I And Meiosis: Four Haploid Cell Processes

    exchange is called the chiasmata. For example, when big A and small a are paired up segments of small a can be exchanged with segments of big A. This also occurs with the big B and small b chromosomes. The next step is metaphase I; during this phase the chromosomes line up at the equator. The spindle fibers from the centromere also start attaching to the chromosomes. During metaphase I, the Law of Independent Assortment occurs, this is one of Mendel’s laws of inheritance. The Law of Independent…
