Pacific Toy Spill Fuels Ocean Current Pathways Research
Badewannen-Enten im grossen Ozean

Manchmal gehen Container einer Schiffsladung verloren. Auch ein Container mit kleinen Plastikenten ist einmal verloren gegangen.

On January 10, 1992, a container vessel crossing the North Pacific Ocean along the great circle route from Hong Kong to Tacoma, Wash., encountered severe storm conditions near the International Date Line. At 44.7°N, 178.1°E, a dozen forty-foot (13.3 m) containers were washed overboard, one of which held about 29,000 plastic bathtub toys (see Figure 1). As they fell overboard, some of the steel cargo containers may have been torn open by the vessel's stays, or they may have been ruptured by collisions with other containers.

Animals are listed by their common name. Since animals within the same family tend to have similar sound production mechanisms and hearing thresholds, they are organized by Family on an alternate page.

Jekyll Island (W3)

Wonach die an der Ostküste der USA liegende "Jekyll Island" benannt wurde, konnte ich nicht in Erfahrung bringen.

Möglicherweise war es ja ein Vorfahre von "Gertrude Jekyll" (1843-1932), nach der auch eine Rose benannt wurde.

ket - Clouds - Cloud-Names

(E?)(L?) http://www.dl.ket.org/latin1/things/clouds/cbody.htm

Clouds, we see them just as the Romans did. The formation of clouds is mainly due to the evaporated water from lakes, streams, and the earth's surface reaching a height in the atmosphere where they condense and stick together. At lower altitudes, they can cause rain, hail, sleet, or snow. When they are higher in the atmosphere, they form ice crystals. Take a brief tour of the different types of clouds, and see how we chose Latin to name the different clouds, as Latin is very descriptive and useful in this manner.

Nautical terms might sound like a foreign language to beginners, but they stand in a proud tradition. Furthermore, they are often practical and will definitely add to your sailor-self-confidence once they became part of your own linguistic repertoire. On this page, you can learn to talk like a sailor - but don’t forget that it takes more than words to run a boat.

Language From the Sea, and Still Fresh After All These Years
Lots of nautical expressions have washed ashore into everyday English. Alan Hartley researches them for the Oxford English Dictionary - that is, when he's not supervising the loading of grain onto foreign ships in the Great Lakes. We called him at his office in Minnesota, and immediately made headway.
