Using the fact that raindrops become more oblate as they get larger and that they are well oriented as they fall, Seliga and Bringi (1976) first reported on the potential of dual-polarization measurements, that is, differential reflectivity [Z.sub.DR], to describe the oblateness
of raindrops and thereby improve rain-rate estimation.
Furthermore, the image of the moon as an "albino apple," alluding to alchemical albedo (see Battistini 2005, 285) and employed to describe Newton's work on universal gravitation, implies that it was actually Newton's secret pursuit of alchemy and the occult that led to his insight about the moon's gravitational attraction on the Earth's oblateness
One of those internal structures of the sun is its oblateness
, or how much it deviates from being a perfect sphere, given the bulge at its equator.
By following its brightness variations over four years, the observers watched the star expand and contract slightly as sound waves rang through its interior, and from that information they determined its oblateness
. The result is only one-third as squat as expected, given the star's slow, 100-day rotation rate.
Relation between the width of the S-surface in the equatorial plane [W.sub.S] = a and its height [H.sub.S] = [[absolute value of z].sub.max] = [square root of ([ar.sub.v])], defines the form of the S-surface by the oblateness
parameter [eta] = [H.sub.S]/[W.sub.S].
Third, it has been suggested that corneal epithelial remodeling plays a role in shape modulation after refractive surgery and that an increase in central epithelial thickness results in a shift toward increased oblateness
By using the Luna 10 spacecraft data, the first dynamical proof of the Moon's oblateness
was made, and a realistic oblateness
coefficient of the Moon was obtained .
Besides, the SINs backbone GEO satellites are subjected to various satellite perturbation forces (e.g., Earth oblateness
perturbation, third-body gravitational perturbation, atmospheric perturbation, and solar perturbation), which leads to position drift and result in the beam center of the ground station antenna unfocused .
The length-width ratio suggested that cells changed into oblateness
from leptosomic type after BMP treatment (Figure 4(f)).
Mathematically, this corresponds to using the geopotential as a sum of the central term ('two-body') and the 'oblateness
term' ([C.sub.20] [equivalent to] [J.sub.2] term, see Sect.
