On the way to the Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT) the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) is an intermediate step. The two 8.4m mirrors create a masked aperture of 23m. LINC-NIRVANA is an instrument taking advantage of this opportunity. It will get, by means of Multi-Conjugated Adaptive Optics (MCAO), a moderate Strehl Ratio over a 2 arcmin field of view,(More)
Fizeau interferometry at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) offers significant advantages over other facilities in terms of spatial resolution, field of view, and sensitivity. We provide an update of the LINC-NIRVANA project, which aims to bring a near-infrared and visible wavelength Fizeau beam combiner to the LBT by late 2005. As with any complex(More)
20 Characterising changes in landscape fire activity at better than hourly temporal 21 resolution is achievable using thermal observations of actively burning fires made 22 from geostationary Earth observation (EO) satellites. Over the last decade or more, a 23 series of research and/or operational 'active fire' products have been developed from 24(More)

Taking a group of high-rise buildings as an example, a method of using the wind power was put forward based on the measurement of its potential wind resource and the analysis of its wind power distribution characteristics. The arrangement of the wind turbines was developed according to wind resource distribution of the high-rise buildings. The wind power(More)
