|Fig. 1 Dr. Mitrovica's Presentation Slide|
They are "missing" from my knowledge, but not from the knowledge of Dr. Mitrovica who presented them in the video.
The slide at Fig. 1 is from his video which I am posting for the last time, hopefully, as a reference point (in future posts, I should resort to referring to a link to a previous post, which has the video displayed, and say "see the video here").
Anyway, the identity of the "Golden 23" (Fig. 1 & Fig. 2) is an important step before I splice the already written projection logic / code into the new SLC model.
|Fig. 2 The "Golden 23" locations|
I am deferring to them instead of selecting a particular number, because I have great respect and appreciation for their good work.
|Fig. 3 My guesses|
It is just that fewer golden moving parts are preferable most of the time, especially in projection scenarios.
The list with the "missing" names (Fig. 3) is not a mystery case.
It is a case where I could not find them clearly listed in the papers I talked about yesterday (The Cause of this is Unknown).
Nor can I discern them all in the fuzzy slide given in the video of the presentation Professor Mitrovica gave.
I listed the station names (which I think I discern) on the list I made by using a screen capture of the slide in the video, then rotating it in a graphics editor.
The unclear names are at slots 5,7,10,18,19, and 20.
I think that the locations of the six (Fig. 2) are most likely: 1) the station at the intersection of Central & S. America, 2) the two stations near the southern border of Brazil, or the northern part of the coast of Argentina, 3) a station in New Zealand (#10 on the list I think), 4) N.W. Africa, and 5) European and/or N.W. Mediterean areas.
I will continue to work on the six names too.
It is just that I don't want to pay a lot of money to acquire the scientific papers authored by Dr. Jerry Mitrovica, Dr. Natalya Gomez, and/or Dr. Carling Hay, which probably have in them a list those tide gauge station names.
Mark Harmon mentioned an acquaintance here who may have free access to those papers as an academic.
This weekend I am going to begin the modification to the model.
A good weekend to all.
The next post in this series is here.
