Bicycle Lane
CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE refers to all infrastructure which may be used by cyclists. This includes the same network of roads and streets used by motorists , except those roads from which cyclists have been banned (e.g., many freeways/motorways ), plus additional bikeways that are not available to motor vehicles, such as bike paths , bike lanes , cycle tracks and, where permitted, sidewalks , plus amenities like bike racks for parking and specialized traffic signs and signals.

Discharge (hydrology)
In hydrology , DISCHARGE is the volumetric flow rate of water that is transported through a given cross-sectional area. It includes any suspended solids (e.g. sediment), dissolved chemicals (e.g. CaCO3(aq)), or biologic material (e.g. diatoms) in addition to the water itself. Synonyms vary by discipline, for example, a fluvial hydrologist studying natural river systems may define discharge as streamflow , whereas an engineer operating a reservoir system might define discharge as OUTFLOW, which is contrasted with inflow .

Humid
HUMIDITY is the amount of water vapor present in the air. Water vapor is the gaseous state of water and is invisible to the human eye. Humidity
Humidity
indicates the likelihood of precipitation , dew , or fog . Higher humidity reduces the effectiveness of sweating in cooling the body by reducing the rate of evaporation of moisture from the skin. This effect is calculated in a heat index table or humidex . The amount of water vapor that is needed to achieve saturation increases as the temperature increases. As the temperature of a parcel of water becomes lower it will eventually reach the point of saturation without adding or losing water mass. The differences in the amount of water vapor in a parcel of air can be quite large. For example, a parcel of air that is near saturation may contain 28 grams of water per cubic meter of air at 30 °C, but only 8 grams of water per cubic meter of air at 8 °C

Conurbation
A CONURBATION is a region comprising a number of cities, large towns, and other urban areas that, through population growth and physical expansion, have merged to form one continuous urban or industrially developed area. In most cases, a conurbation is a polycentric urbanised area, in which transportation has developed to link areas to create a single urban labour market or travel to work area . The term "conurbation" was coined in 1915 by Patrick Geddes in his book Cities In Evolution

Gastronomy
GASTRONOMY is the study of the relationship between food and culture, art of preparing and serving rich or delicate and appetizing food, a style of cooking of particular region, and the science of good eating. One who is well versed in gastronomy is called a gastronome, while a gastronomist is one who unites theory and practice in the study of gastronomy. Practical gastronomy is associated with the practice and study of the preparation, production, and service of the various foods and beverages, from countries around the world. Theoretical gastronomy supports practical gastronomy. It is related with a system and process approach, focused on recipes and cookery books. Food

Beech
BEECH (Fagus) is a genus of deciduous trees in the family Fagaceae , native to temperate Europe , Asia and North America . Recent classification systems of the genus recognize ten to thirteen species in two distinct subgenera, Engleriana and Fagus. The Engleriana subgenus is found only in East Asia, and is notably distinct from the Fagus subgenus in that these beeches are low-branching trees, often made up of several major trunks with yellowish bark. Further differentiating characteristics include the whitish bloom on the underside of the leaves, the visible tertiary leaf veins, and a long, smooth cupule-peduncle. Fagus japonica , Fagus engleriana , and the species F. okamotoi, proposed by the botanist Chung-Fu Shen in 1992, comprise this subgenus

Volcanic Cone
VOLCANIC CONES are among the simplest volcanic landforms . They are built by ejecta from a volcanic vent , piling up around the vent in the shape of a cone with a central crater. Volcanic cones are of different types, depending upon the nature and size of the fragments ejected during the eruption. Types of volcanic cones include stratocones , spatter cones , tuff cones , and cinder cones . CONTENTS * 1 Stratocone * 2 Spatter cone * 3 Tuff
