(DE, EN) Full text of "A German-English dictionary for chemists" | AUSTIN M. PATTERSON | Glossaries, dictionaries, resources | Scoop.it

"Patterson's classic German-English Dictionary for Chemists, 1st Ed. (1917) in plain text, downloadable form. Useful even with ocr mistakes. Also available as a searchable flip-book image of original (choose "read online" in list of other formats). Just like having the book on your desk, without the dust. Even better, since the search brings up compound words and phrases that include the search word."

(EN) (PDF) Illustrated Horological Glossary | nawcc-index.net

"The following pages are by no means an unabridged horological glossary, which could fill volumes. It is rather an easy reference guide for new watch enthusiasts, a helping hand as it were. The next 30 pages contain some of the more common vernacular used within the pages of our catalogues as well as approximately 350 illustrations. As we are firm believers in the old adage “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing”, we are currently working on a constantly evolving horological lexicon and database which will be available at www.antiquorum.com. We will be keeping you abreast of further developments on this project in future issues of the Vox magazine. Until then, we hope the following will be useful to those of you who have just joined us in the world of horology."

(EN) State Rainwater: Graywater Harvesting Laws and Legislation | ncsl.org | Glossaries, dictionaries, resources | Scoop.it

"Record droughts and water-supply worries have served as catalysts for state legislatures to consider legislation legalizing the catchment and use of rainwater for use in households and for lawns.

There has been increased interest over the past five years in legislation allowing, defining, and clarifying when rainwater harvesting can occur. Rainwater harvesting is the act of utilizing a collection system to use rainwater for outdoor uses, plumbing, and, in some cases, consumption. States have also passed legislation encouraging the use of Graywater. Graywater refers to the reuse of water drained from baths, showers, washing machines, and sinks (household wastewater excluding toilet wastes) for irrigation and other water conservation applications.
States must ensure water-quality standards and public health concerns are met. In some states, such as Colorado, previous water law stated that all precipitation belonged to existing water-rights owners, and that rain needed to flow to join its rightful water drainage. However, a 2007 study conducted by the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Douglas County determined that only 3 percent of rain actually reached a stream or the ground. Colorado followed-up by enacting two pieces of legislation, one allowing certain types of well owners to use rainwater and one authorizing pilot development projects."

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 21, 4:43 AM
Some folks have ask me if I do a blog. I'm a fairly long winded commenter with lots of opinions and thoughts on the topics I care about. The answer is yes, but not seriously. I thought this article might help me get more serious about that. Why waste your thoughts to be left to fly away with time? Someone might be able to build on them even if you don't. Sometimes sad to say we even forget some of our own best ideas when we have time to work on them. Why not record them and store them on a blog.

"This glossary contains nearly 3,000 technical terms, with their definitions, explanations, and illustrative materials where apropos. The aim of the CoRIS glossary is to help the student or layperson, as well as the professional scientist and manager, to understand the complex language and terminology of coral reef ecosystem science when accessing any part of the NOAA Coral Reef Information System (CoRIS), including the scientific and technical literature and data. Habitats and communities adjacent to the coral reefs, such as sea grass meadows, mangrove forests and associated hard and soft substrate habitats are included within the scope of the coral reef ecosystem.

The glossary contains terms concerned with ecology, biogeography, evolution, taxonomy, morphology, physiology, cell and molecular biology, genetics, mapping, development, fisheries, oceanography, geosciences, conservation programs, remote-sensing, physics, chemistry, and data and information management.

The glossary is organized alphabetically by page -- A through Z. Literature sources are listed on the References Page.

The entire glossary is also provided as a PDF document (12.7 MB). The document includes all terms, photographs, images, and literature sources."
