geocentric system
  راژمان ِ زمین‌مرکزی   
râžmân-e zamin-markazi

Fr.: système géocentrique   

An ancient model of the Universe whereby all the celestial bodies travel around the Earth in circular orbits. Eudoxus of Cnidus (c. 390- c. 337 BC), one of Plato's pupils, maintained that all objects in the sky are attached to moving crystalline spheres, with the Earth at the centre. This model is often named → Ptolemaic system after its most famous supporter, the Greco-Roman astronomer Ptolemy.

geocentric; → system.

geochemical

Fr.: géochimie   

A field of science that is concerned with the relative abundance, distribution, and the movement of → chemical elements in the → Earth's crust or other → solar system objects.

geo-; → chemistry.

geocorona
  زمین‌تاج   
zamin-tâj (#)

Fr.: géocouronne   

The outermost part of Earth's atmosphere, a tenuous halo of hydrogen and some helium extending out to perhaps 15 Earth radii, which emits Lyman-alpha radiation when it is bombarded by sunlight.

From → geo- + → corona.

geodesic
  کهین‌ره، زمین‌سنجیک   
kehinrah, zamin-sanjik

Fr.: géodésique   

1) The shortest distance between two points in space (or → space-time). A geodesic on a sphere is an → arc of a → great circle. In the theory of → general relativity, freely falling bodies follow geodesic paths in space-time.
2) → geodetic.

From Fr. géodésique, → geodesy; → -ic.

Kehinrah "shortest path," from kehin, superlative of keh "small, little, slender" (related to kâstan, kâhidan "to decrease, lessen, diminish," from Mid.Pers. kâhitan, kâstan, kâhênitan "to decrease, diminish, lessen;" Av. kasu- "small, little;" Proto-Iranian *kas- "to be small, diminish, lessen") + râh "path, way, road" (from Mid.Pers. râh, râs "way, street," also rah, ras "chariot;" from Proto-Iranian *rāθa-; cf. Av. raθa- "chariot;" Skt. rátha- "car, chariot," rathyā- "road;" L. rota "wheel," rotare "to revolve, roll;" Lith. ratas "wheel;" O.H.G. rad; Ger. Rad; Du. rad; O.Ir. roth; PIE base *roto- "to run, to turn, to roll").

geodesic line
  خط ِ کهین‌ره   
xatt-e kehinrah

Fr.: ligne géodésique   

The shortest line between two points on a surface. Also called → geodesic.

geodesic; → line.

geodesic precession
  پیشایان ِ کهین‌رهی   
pišâyân-e kehinrahi

Fr.: précession géodésique   

geodesic precession.

geodesic; → precession

geodesy
  زمین‌سنجی   
zamin-sanji (#)

Fr.: géodésie   

The study and measurement of the shape, size, and curvature of the Earth.

From Fr. géodésie, from Gk. geodaisia, from → geo- + dai(ein) "to divide" + -sia, variant of -ia a noun suffix.

Zamin-sanji, from zamin, → geo-, + sanji, from sanjidan "to measure; to compare," from Mid.Pers. sanjidan "to weigh," from present tense stem sanj-, Av. θanj- "to draw, pull;" Proto-Iranian *θanj-. Other terms from this base in Pers.: lanjidan "to pull up," hanjidan, âhanjidan "to draw out," farhang "education, culture."

geodesy satellite
  ماهواره‌ی ِ زمین‌سنجی، ~ زمین‌سنجیک   
mâhvâre-ye zamin-sanji, ~ zamin-sanjik

Fr.: satellite géodésique   

A type of Earth observing satellite used to measure the location of points on Earth's surface with great accuracy. Their observations help determine the exact size and shape of Earth, act as references for mapping, and track movements of Earth's crust.

geodesy; → satellite

geodetic
  زمین‌سنجیک   
zamin-sanjik

Fr.: géodésique   

Of, relating to, or determined by → geodesy.

geodesy; → -ic.

geodetic coordinates
  هماراهای ِ زمین‌سنجیک   
hamârâhâ-ye zamin-sanjik

Fr.: coordonnées géodésiques   

A → coordinate system, composed of → geodetic latitude and → geodetic longitude on the → Earth's surface which is dependent on the figure and size of a particular model for the Earth's surface.

geodetic; → coordinate.

geodetic datum
  داده‌بن ِ زمین‌سنجیک   
dâdebon-e zamin-sanjik

Fr.: donnée géodésique   

Any of the adopted values of → geodetic latitude, → geodetic longitude, or → azimuth at a selected location (an initial station) whose astronomical coordinates have already been determined.

geodetic; → datum.

geodetic equator
  هموگار ِ زمین‌سنجیک   
hamugâr-e zamin-sanjik

Fr.: équateur géodésique
