Only at first glance it may seem that navigate in the mountains just Behold top, that's the valley. Actually, Orienteering in the mountains extremely difficult. And even if the direction of motion, it seems obvious that the complexity of the mining conditions, unpredictable terrain, can complicate the way repeatedly, knock directions, to stall when neither backward nor forward. So, for orienteering in the mountains should be approached with the utmost seriousness.
On the hill you can work your way to the valley, it is not difficult. The compass, the stars or the sun, you can define the desired Read more [...]
Polar Ural - one of the most sublime pieces of ancient Ural Mountains. Crests of ridges here rise to 1100-1300 m above sea level, and the individual peaks reach even greater heights. The axial zone of the Polar Urals is mainly composed of ancient metamorphic rocks, broken through the powerful outpouring of granites and granodiorites, which are associated with rare-metal mineralization and deposits of rock crystal. Many mountain ranges stacked quartzite and quartzite conglomerates.
By the nature of the relief and geological structure of the Polar Urals is divided into northern and southern parts Read more [...]
On the banks of the glacial basins in the watershed raised widespread development had subaerial processes through which the facial complex formed subaerial cover mainly eolian and snow-eolian sediments. With the predominance of storage areas drawn by eolian debris basins linked-ridge (hryvnia) relief, and in the areas of prevalence of deposition of atmospheric dust (weighted eolian debris) accumulated loess cover, blocked the older formations.
Education pozdnezyryanskogo loess cover and genetically associated hryvnia relief flowed during the recession of the glacial basins in very dry, arid climate, Read more [...]

Popular opinion number 1: increase the stiffness of the blade valleys, because the ribs are formed in cross-section, it says the strength of materials.Popular opinion number 2: increase the stiffness of the blade valleys only if stamping. It's common sense says.Popular opinion number 3: through them so the blood flows, sho scribe. So it seems the people.
With an effort extortion laziness, finally decided to dot the "i" on the above topics. Just say, I do not Salieri. But I'm a former civil engineer-designer, so the Read more [...]
Relief District was formed under the influence of erosion and denudation, and neotectonic movements that caused general elevation Carpathian fold country. In general, relief hilly, well-defined with the general slope of the north. In structure it pretty clearly distinguished elevated watershed areas and separating them wide and flat valleys. Due to the extremely wide development in the area of soft sediment watershed areas have rounded or flat top shape and gentle slopes. The highest mark of relief characteristic of the southern part of the district area Truskavets. Here, in particular, are Read more [...]
In the east, the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, are Brazilian and Guiana Highlands, the Patagonian plateau. In the far west and northwest of the continent, repeating shapes its shores by 9 thousand miles stretches the world's longest mountain range of the Andes and South American Cordillera, consisting of parallel or nearly parallel ridges and intermontane valleys.
From the point of view of the possibility of extreme events in the Andes should be viewed only in the northern, central and the Chilean-Argentine Andes.
Northern Andes, lying in the equatorial and subequatorial belt - is actually Read more [...]
In 1935, adventurer Eric Shipton had to abort an endeavour up Ride Everest because he'd dawdled too yearn in the rhododendron-thick glower valleys and sprawl glaciers of a little-known Tibetan scope to the e. Nowadays, few citizenry chaffer the Ama Drime mountains, going huge swaths of the domain untrampled by Westerly soles. Drop 16 years exploring passes supra 16,000 feet and bivouacking on hillsides covered with monster amytal poppies to ambit the arboreous enclave of the Kharta Vale, e of Backing Everest. Calculate walk-to astir cinque to nine-spot miles a day, fillet to schmooze with locals Read more [...]
Colonial and settlement types. Settlement yellow gopher have more or less distinct colonial character. Group allocation norms particularly evident in the early release of animals from hibernation until the so-called intermediate holes, most of them temporary shelters summer gophers.
Dissemination of animals within the area is not solid, but in the form of separate arrays, between which there are uninhabited spaces - large tracts of sand (Muyunkum, Kyzylkum), gravelly-clay watershed (central areas Ustiurt Betpak Dala) and at the same time, it is suitable for dwelling squirrels habitats.
