Can be either "the apparition, double, or wraith of a living person" (Oxford English Dictionary), or a projected Astral Body or thought-form deliberately sent out to make its presence known to a particular person.
(1) 'The apparition, double, or wraith of a living person' (Oxford English Dicionary). (2) A projected astral body of thought-form deliberately sent out to make its presence known to a particular person. (3) A witch (usually male) sent out by a High Priestess as a confidential messenger or escort; sometimes called the Summoner of the Officer.
In surface gravity wave generation theories, the length of water over which a wind is blowing. The wave height is completely determined in such theories by the fetch, the duration over which the wind blows, and the velocity of the wind. See Kinsman (1984).
The length of water a wind can blow over. The longer the fetch, the more influence the wind will have on the body of water. In Cayuga Lake the fetch is about 60 km in the N-S direction and 3 in E-W direction.
(1) The distance of open water over which a wind has blown before it reaches your location. (2) The ability to sail to windward with a resulting course sufficient to carry you to a destination, e.g., "We can fetch the mark on this tack."
The distance wind and waves can travel toward land without being blocked. In areas without obstructions, the wind and seas can build to great strength, but in sheltered areas, such as coves and harbors, the wind and seas can be quite calm. Fetch also is used to describe the act of sailing to a location accurately without having to tack.
1. The distance upstream of a measurement site, receptor site, or region of meteorological interest, that is relatively uniform. If a measurement site is located in the middle of a farm field with homogeneous land use, and if there are no changes to the land use and no obstructions such as trees or buildings immediately upstream of the site, then the site is said to have "large fetch". Large fetch is usually considered good if the measurements are to be representative of the atmosphere over the farm field. Similarly, measurements over a homogeneous forest could also have large fetch if there are no clearcuts or changes in the tree characteristics upstream of the measurement site. 2. (Also called generating area.) An ocean area where waves are generated by a wind having a constant direction and speed. 3. The length of the fetch area, measured in the direction of the wind in which ocean waves are generated. In many cases, the fetch is limited by the upwind distance to the coast.
An area of the water surface over which waves are generated by a wind having a constant direction and speed. Also, it is the name given to the length of the fetch area, measured in the direction of the wind from which the seas are generated. One of the ingredients for lake effect snow is the fetch of the water over which cold air can gain moisture. Related term: Dave's Dictionary
Fetch, often called the fetch length, is a term for the length of water over which a given wind has blown. It is used in geography and meteorology and is usually associated with coastal erosion. It plays a large part in longshore drift as well.
An Internet FTP site access program for MAC. Very user-friendly for clients accessing their weather from our FTP site. (For PC users we recommend WSFTP Pro.) Not to be confused with an Extensis Pro program formerly of the same name.). Created by Dartmouth University. Is available at Dartmouth website, www.dartmouth.edu or any of the large shareware web sites such as www.download.com. A registration fee of $25.00 is usually requested.
Application that is used to transfer files ( FTP) between your local machine and a remote FTP server. Available for free on the DukeNet Tools CD or at the Fetch Softworks Web site. Recommended FTP client for Macintosh.
a Macintosh program that transfers files using file transfer protocol (FTP) from a computer to a server or from a server to a computer. This is one of the ways that Web pages are loaded from a Web designer to the server that offers them to users via the World Wide Web.
This is Macintosh's method of moving files from one computer to another, simlar to file transfer protocol (ftp). Usually, it is used to copy files from a personal computer to a server, so that they can be accessed by others.
Fetch is a full-featured GUI-based Mac OS-only FTP client made by Fetch Softworks. The latest version of Fetch is 5.1; the long-awaited version 5 was released on May 24, 2005. In addition to basic FTP functionality, Fetch includes such features as editing files without having to download them and re-upload them.
Fetch is a game usually played with a dog. An object, such as a stick or ball, is thrown a moderate distance away from the animal, and it is the animal's objective to grab and retrieve it. Many times, the owner of the animal will yell "Fetch!" at the animal before or after throwing the object.
The process of reading an instruction or an item of data from memory and writing it in a register. Fetch is part of the execution cycle of a microprocessor; first an instruction or item of data must be fetched from memory and loaded into a register, after which it can be executed (if it is an instruction) or acted upon (if it is data).
