A conformal map projection of the conic type, on which all geographic meridians are represented by straight lines which meet in a common point outside the limits of the map, and the geographic parallels are represented by a series of arcs of circles having this common point for a center. Meridians and parallels intersect at right angles, and angles on the earth are correctly represented on the projection. This projection may have one standard parallel along which the scale is held exact; or there may be two such standard parallels, both maintaining exact scale. At any point on the map, the scale is the same in every direction. The scale changes along the meridians and is constant along each parallel. Where there are two standard parallels, the scale between those parallels is too small; beyond them, too large. Also called LAMBERT CONFORMAL MAP PROJECTION.

EMISSION SPECTROMETER
Works on the basis that atoms of metallic and other particular elements emit light at characteristic wavelengths when they are excited in a flame, arc, or spark. Excited light is directed through an entrance slit in the spectrometer. This light penetrates the slit, falls on a grate, and is dispersed and reflected. The spectrometer is calibrated by a series of standard samples containing known amounts of the elements of interest. By exciting these standard samples, an analytical curve can be established which gives the relationship between the light intensity and its concentration in the fluid.

HELIOCENTRIC PARALLAX
The difference in the apparent direction or positions of a celestial body outside the solar system, as observed from the earth and sun. Also called STELLAR PARALLAX, ANNUAL PARALLAX

FABRICATION INTEGRITY POINT
The differential gas pressure at which the first stream of gas bubbles are emitted from a wetted filter element under standard test conditions.

LAMINAR FLOW
A flow situation in which fluid moves in parallel lamina or layers.

SHEAR RATE
The difference between the velocities along the parallel faces of a fluid element divided by the distance between the faces.

BYPASS FILTRATION
A system of filtration in which only a portion of the total flow of a circulating fluid system passes through a filter at any instant or in which a filter having its own circulating pump operates in parallel to the main flow.

ISO VISCOSITY GRADE
A number indicating the nominal viscosity of an industrial fluid lubricant at 40°C (104°F) as defined by ASTM Standard Viscosity System for Industrial Fluid Lubricants D 2422. Essentially identical to ISO Standard 3448.

GRID PARALLEL
A line parallel to a grid equator, connecting all points of equal grid latitude

HORIZON
The great circle of the celestial sphere midway between the zenith and nadir, or a line resembling or approximating such a circle. The line where earth and sky appear to meet, and the projection of this line upon the celestial sphere, is called the visible or apparent horizon. A line resembling the visible horizon but above or below it is called a false horizon. The circle of the celestial sphereformed by the intersection of the celestial sphere and a plane perpendicular to the zenithnadir line is called sensible horizon if the plane is through any point, such as the eye of an observer; geoidal horizon if through any sealevel point; and celestial or rational horizon if through the center of the earth. The geometrical horizon was originally considered identi cal with the celestial horizon, but the expression is now more commonly used to refer to the intersection of the celestial

HACK
A chronometer which has failed to meet the exacting require ments of a standard chronometer, and is used for timing observations of celestial bodies, regulating ship's clocks, etc. A comparing watch, which may be of high quality, is normally used for timing celestial observations, the watch being compared with the chronometer, preferably both before and after observations. Sometimes called HACK CHRONOMETER.
