For land ice, the dynamic response time is proportional to the size of the ice mass. J. Bamber and A. Parsons (2004) have a table of estimated response times for various components of the climatic system. See also reaction time ; relaxation time...

... time The time interval between the arrival of an input or request to a device and its provision of the appropriate output or response. For simple services, such as a fetch of data from a memory address, response time is very predictable and is usually determined by the system clock cycle . For complex services, such as a web page look-up, the time will include queuing time and network transmission, which can be unpredictable, as well as the more predictable service time for the web server to actually obtain the requested page. ...

...response time The duration of the morphometric adjustments following change in net mass balance. This is a vague concept, because the reaction time may depend on the glacier history in an untransparent way. A distinction should be made between response times for glacier volume and glacier length . When the specific balance changes, the volume will respond immediately. For glacier length it may take a bit more time, in particular when the changes are more apparent at higher...

... An Islamic Response to Imperialism Philosopher, writer, orator, journalist, and political activist, he traveled widely from India and Afghanistan to Istanbul, Cairo, Paris, and London, stirring in Muslims the consciousness of their potential strength in the face of colonialism. He is the father of modern Muslim nationalism, proponent of pan-Islam, and the main inspiration for the reform movement in Islam. He expresses almost all the attitudes and themes that are commonplace in Muslim apologetics from 1900 to the present. This selection is taken from material...

...on the basis of mutual aid. But for our purpose, the positive character of the response of Islam manifests itself above all in the idea of progress that Islamic thinkers and philosophers have brought to light. These are, above all, secular thinkers and philosophers. It is the physician [Abu Bakr Muhammad] Razi [Persia, 864– 925], whose philosophy is founded on the notions of “demiurge,” of “materia prima,” of “space and time,” who distinguishes between absolute time and limited time, who proclaims the mission of the philosophers “to awaken souls.” It is the...

...time with the pessimistic notion that Haman's intent to destroy Mordecai may end up with the opposite result. The reason for this? Mordecai is Jewish ( 6:13 ). Zeresh's response conveys a powerful notion underlying the book—that the Jews are ultimately inviolable and will somehow survive. ( 7:1–8:17 ) Haman is Overcome and Replaced At the queen's second banquet, when the king is determined to grant her any request, Esther speaks to Ahasuerus in a way that signals her readiness to take advantage of his goodwill. In 7:3 she addresses him for the first time in...

...silent nor can he fight. . . . Husayn must fight, but he cannot. It is so wonderful that it is so clear to intellectuals . . . that the response to the question “What is to be done?” is “Nothing,” because the result of any action is defeat. Nothing can be done. . . . There is only one man, a lonely man, who says “Yes.” And what is that “yes”? It is a response behind which lies total inability, total weakness in a time of darkness and silence, against oppression and tyranny, an aware and faithful man who still has the responsibility of the jihad . . . .

...his work, and the response of the one addressed. Luke is emphatic that Mary, though betrothed to Joseph, was a virgin. Betrothal meant the entering into the legal contract of marriage though consummation did not normally occur until the time when, probably around a year later, the bride left her father's house to join her husband's. The angel's greeting, ‘Rejoice’, may have overtones of Zeph 3:14–17 and Zech 9:9 where God announces redemption to Jerusalem and her people. Mary is ‘the favoured one’ in that her life has revealed a response to God that suggests...

...Laila and Majnun. As the story goes, the young man was scorned and ridiculed for his obsession with the maiden, because to the eyes of the world Laila was hideous in physical appearance. In response to this, the youth always replied: “To see the beauty of Laila, one requires the eyes of Majnun.” Looking at our co-religionists, we tend to be Majnun most of the time. But we are also deeply aware that the Muslim world is not without its excesses and internal contradictions. The negative image of Muslims to the rest of the world is to a great extent the...

...(Recent attempts, such as Hillers ( 1984 ) and Shaw ( 1993 ), to defend authorial unity do not seem convincing.) Micah's uncompromisingly negative message ( 3:12 ) was still remembered at the time of the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians and the exile of part of its population ( cf. Jer. 26:17–19 ), and his words began to be read as having found fulfilment at that time, leaving its mark at a number of points in the text ( Jeremias 1971 ). Such a living ‘word of the Lord ’, however, could never be exhausted by a single event, and so new material which...
