The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

London Olympic Stadium holds 80,000 people. This blog was viewed about 320.000 times in 2011. If it were competing at London Olympic Stadium, it would take about 4 sold-out events for that many people to see it.

Research has been conducted to compare daily, monthly and seasonal rain rates derived from Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) multisatellite precipitation analysis (TMPA) using rain gauge analysis from 1998 to 2002. Three rain gauges in the Bali islands were employed. Statistical analysis was used to analyse the relationship of the TMPA product with the rain gauge data. Resulting statistical measures consisted of the linear correlation coefficient (r), the mean bias error (MBE), the root mean square error (RMSE) and the mean absolute error (MAE). The results of these analyses indicate that satellite data have lower values than the gauge estimation values. The validation analysis showed a very good relationship with the gauge data on monthly timescales. However, a poor relationship was found between the gauge data and the daily data analysis from the TMPA. The 3B42 and 3B43 products showed the same levels of relationship during the wet season and dry season. The correlation in the dry season was better than during the wet season. Statistical error levels during the wet season were better than in the dry season. The 3B43 showed slight improvement in these values when compared with the 3B42 (both the random error measurement and the scatter of the estimates were reduced). In general, the data from TMPA are potentially usable to replace rain gauge data, especially to replace the monthly data, if inconsistencies and errors are taken into account.

Coral reef response to global warming: paper collections

This is a list of papers on coral response to global warming and the ocean acidification. The list is not complete, and will most likely be updated in the future in order to make it more thorough and more representative.

Sea-surface temperature and thermal stress in the Coral Triangle over the past two decades – (Penaflor et al.) (2009)  “Increasing ocean temperature has become one of the major concerns in recent times with reports of various related ecological impacts becoming commonplace. One of the more notable is the increased frequency of mass coral bleaching worldwide. This study focuses on the Coral Triangle region and utilizes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-Coral Reef Watch (NOAACRW) satellite-derived sea surface temperature (SST) and Degree Heating Weeks (DHW) products to investigate changes in the thermal regime of the Coral Triangle waters between 1985 and 2006. Results show an upward trend in SST during this period with an average rate of 0.2C/ decade. However, warming within this region is not uniform, and the waters of the northern and eastern parts of the Coral Triangle are warming fastest. Areas in the eastern part have experienced more thermal stress events, and these stress events appear to be more likely during a La Nina.” Penaflor et al, Coral Reefs (2009) 28:841–850. [full text]

Coral Reefs and Ocean Acidification – Kleypas and Yates (2009)Coral reefs were one of the first ecosystems to be recognized as vulnerable to ocean acidification. To date, most scientific investigations into the effects of ocean acidification on coral reefs have been related to the reefs’ unique ability to produce voluminous amounts of calcium carbonate. It has been estimated that the main reef-building organisms, corals and calcifying macroalgae, will calcify 10–50% less relative to pre-industrial rates by the middle of this century. This decreased calcification is likely to affect their ability to function within the ecosystem and will almost certainly affect the workings of the ecosystem itself. However, ocean acidification affects not only the organisms, but also the reefs they build. The decline in calcium carbonate production, coupled with an increase in calcium carbonate dissolution, will diminish reef building and the benefits that reefs provide, such as high structural complexity that supports biodiversity on reefs, and breakwater effects that protect shorelines and create quiet habitats for other ecosystems, such as mangroves and seagrass beds. The focus on calcification in reefs is warranted, but the responses of many other organisms, such as fish, noncalcifying algae, and seagrasses, to name a few, deserve a close look as well.” Joan A. Kleypas and Kimberly K. Yates, Oceanography 22(4):108–117, DOI: 10.5670/oceanog.2009.101. [full text]

Monitoring coral reefs from Space – Eakin et al., (2010) “Coral reefs are one of the world’s most biologically diverse and productive ecosystems. However, these valuable resources are highly threatened by human activities. Satellite remotely sensed observations enhance our understanding of coral reefs and some of the threats facing them by providing global spatial and time-series data on reef habitats and the environmental conditions influencing them in near-real time. This review highlights many of the ways in which satellites are currently used to monitor coral reefs and their threats, and provides a look toward future needs and capabilities.” Eakin CM, Nim CJ, Russell EB, Aubrecht C, Elvidge C, Gledhill DK, Muller-Karger F, Mumby PJ, Skirving WJ, Strong AE, Wang M, Weeks SJ, Wentz F, Ziskin D, Oceanography, 23(4):118–133, DOI:10.5670/oceanog.2010.10 [full text] Baca entri selengkapnya »

Worldwide map of nuclear power stations and earthquake zones

Sumber: maptd.com

seismic activity and nuclear power station locations

Following the incidents at nuclear power plants in Japan after the earthquake I was wondering which power stations around the world are near active earthquake zones.

With this in mind, I’ve created a map combining two sets of information:

  • A heatmap of every 4.5+ magnitude earthquake since to 1973 – around 174,000 in total
  • The location of 248 atomic energy plants, including numbers of reactors. Represented by blue markers.

The seismic data are from the United States Geological Survey and the nuclear power station information the International Atomic Energy Agency. The map is built from two Google Fusion tables, here and here.

To see the actual locations of the earthquakes you can toggle the heatmap off and display markers instead.

Cara mudah mencari/memberi arah pake Google Map

Copy paste lagi tulisan penulis lainnya yang menarik buat saya. informasi tentang pemanfaatan Google Maps untuk mencari/memberi arah dari tempat tertentu ke tempat lainnya yang lengkap dengan informasi jalan-jalan mana saja yang akan dilewati. tulisan menarik ini di tulis oleh Alex Pangestu di Blog National Geographic Indonesia dengan judul Asli Cara mudah menunjukkan arah serta dengan alamat website http://teknologi.blog.nationalgeographic.co.id/2010/11/12/cara-mudah-menunjukkan-arah/. semoga tulisan menarik ini bisa membantu kita-kita agar tidak tersesat. soalnya klo tersesat bisa salah masuk kamar katanya Warkop :mrgreen:

OK… inilah tulisannya tersebut… *seluruh tulisan berwarna hijau adalah murni copy paste dari tulisannya Alex Pangestu*

Memberi petunjuk jalan jadi lebih gampang dengan pakai peta online. Saya coba berbagi cara bikin petunjuk jalan di Google Maps Indonesia.

Kemarin sore, teman saya menanyakan arah menuju Kantor Imigrasi Tangerang. “Dari arah Serpong deh,” katanya. Daripada saya menjelaskan panjang lebar, saya buka Google Maps Indonesia. Saya cari “Jalan Serpong Raya- Pakulonan”. Begitu ketemu, perbesar peta dulu sampai terlihat jelas Jalan Serpong Raya – Pakulonan itu.

Saya klik kanan di penanda yang muncul di peta, lalu saya klik “Petunjuk arah dari sini” sehingga penanda yang tadinya berwarna merah berubah jadi warna hijau. Baca entri selengkapnya »
