International Date Line

Parent Category: Time Zones
The International Date Line is a line of longitude roughly located at 180 degrees. It marks the two different days on Earth, where 24 hours is added or subtracted when one crosses the line.
it will be 4:00 am of the next day in Russia
Iran is about 3h and 30m ahead of the UK
The international dateline is 12 hours later than Greenwich, or 12hours earlier than Greenwich, depending on what side of thedateline you are considering.
10 AM Pacific Standard Time . = 6 PM Greenwich Mean Time (Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire,Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania,São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Sierra Leone & Togo) . = 6 PM Western European Time (Morocco & WesternSahara) . = 7 PM Western European...
It's called Indochina Time, and its offset is UTC + 7 hours.
they tell you where the equator, prim meridian and etc are located
The Greenwich or "Prime" meridian was arbitrarily defined as 0 degrees of longitude. Longitudinal positions are measured as either east or west from Greenwich. (The French for a while had a separate system that used the Paris meridian as 0 degrees). Since a sphere - the Earth - has 360 degrees of...
The interaction between the oceans surface and the circulation ofthe lower atmosphere is the primary cause of the surface currentsin the oceans. A current generally refers to the horizontalmovement of water. The direction, speed, and the temperature of thewater masses moved by the ocean currents...
3:00 pm in the Nigerian standards
So that it doesn't go through towns and cities. Imagine walking to school through a date line, it would be far too confusing. It's basically for convenience.
British and French empires
it will take about 17 hours between them via flight
The International Date Line was established, beginning in 1917, asthe arbitrary line of longitude at which a calendar day is said tobegin. Because the Earth rotates, and any clock hour could be local timesomewhere in the world, a location was chosen to be the dividingpoint between calendar days. As...
Swiss Air Line offers many different cargo prices depending upon your destination. For 100kgs from JFK-ZRH you could figure $1.40kg plus fuel & security surcharge.
it will be 6:30 am of the same day
Since the earth is a sphere, there are at least two different ways to get from any place to any other place ... a longer way and a shorter way. To travel from Barcelona to London, you could set out in a south-southeasterly direction, eventually cross the International Date Line, and reach...
The line that cuts a parallel line is called a TRANSVERSAL. When you have parallel lines and you want to show like corresponding, vertical, ect.... then the line that cut through the parallel lines is a TRANSVERSAL
When you cross the IDL from east to west ... like going from the US to Japan ... you move your watch and calendar to read a day later. You skip over 24 hours, and you 'lose' them. When you cross it going from west to east ... like toward the US and Canada from Asia ... you move your watch and...
if youre a girl just ask him out there is no shame in that i do it all the time that doesnt mean its bad that just means youre independent and strong.
Nuku'Alofa, the capital, is about 300 miles east of the IDL.

No, perpendicular lines intersect eachother at 90 degree angles. Parallel lines never intersect. So perpendicular lines will never be parallel.
Malaysia is 7 hours ahead of Paris, France .
Nationalism seeks to increase the power of a specific state whereasinternationalism seeks to relegate power to a group of othernations. Internationalism is generally more centralized.
On the 180 degs latitude but veers of that line to by-pass New Zealand and then back onto 180
The Aleutian Chain of islands, extending from the southwest corner of the mainland of Alaska, extends far past the 180th meridian, but the IDL is zig-zagged in order to keep all of Alaska on the same side of it.
Interesting poem. I think that one of the contemporary trends you mention is just that someone *can* walk down the street listening to music. This was not always possible, but is getting more and more common since the advent of the walkman, and now the iPod.. I love how he talks about the musicians...
describe the general goegraphical position on New Zealand in relation to the international date line
No. The Prime Meridian joins the north and south poles, and passes through England, Spain, France, and Africa. Nothing in the USA is closer than about 1,280 miles to any point on the Prime Meridian.

No, you can not cross the international date line in China. This is because the international date line runs through the middle of the Pacific Ocean, not China.
No it goes through England though
Although it sounds like a date such as month day and year, thedateline is actually in the first line of an article and is thelocation where the reporter is writing from. For example: "LOS ANGELES - A woman gave birth to eight babiestoday." In this example, the "dateline" is Los Angeles. Datelines...
The IDL should nominally follow the meridian of longitude that is 180 degrees from the Greenwich Prime Meridian ... roughly down the middle of the Pacific Ocean. But in defining the line, it was zigged and zagged where necessary to avoid cutting across nations and politically contiguous island...
Yes. Each meridian joins the north and south poles.
If not for standard time zones, the midnight line would be the longitude directly opposite the longitude on which the sun is directly overhead. Therefore, it would be constantly circling the earth. At the moment when the sun is at its highest point in the sky as seen from Greenwich, England (noon...
The Prime Meridian passes through Greenwich which is a suburb of London, England.
The International date line located in Grenwich England
They're not. A line segment is just two points connected. A line however, goes on forever in both directions. And then there's a ray that goes on forever in just one direction.
Answer . They used canoes for transportation over water and walked anywhere else. Mind you they had things like snow shoes, and various tools and clothes to help them brave the sometimes crazy winters here. Of course things are different today.
A hurricane that crosses the international date line is called a typhoon.
Depends where in Canada. Here are the time differences from England to the provinces. Newfoundland = 2.5 to 3.5 hours Novia Scotia & New Brunswick = 3 to 4 hours Quebec = 4 to 5 hours Ontario = 4 to 6 hours Manitoba = 5 to 6 hours Alberta & Saskatchewan = 6 to 7 hours British Columbia = 6 to 8...
First of all ... since the earth is a sphere, you can reach any place you want to be by traveling west from any starting point. So, technically, any city you name is west of any other place. Now, to put a finer point on it ... although the city of Sacramento can also be found in Colorado, ...
Australia is somewhat west of the International Date Line.

no the prime meridian is on the opposite side of the earth from the international date line
The Canadian, Sir Alexander Fleming, came up with the idea of dividing the earth into time zones using lines of longitude. Zero longitude runs through Greenwich Park in London and is marked by a bronze strip let into the pavement outside the Greenwich Observatory. 180 Longitude is in the Pacific...
Bu they do! Every day. In both directions. Who told you they don't ? ! ?
Your total flight distance is about 10,700 km. We assume you arrive Singapore 10 hours after departing Nice ... not 34 hours. Unless your flight crew makes some serious mistake, you don't cross the International Date Line on that itinerary. So you arrive in the early morning hours of ...
All meridians of longitude converge (come together) at the north and south poles. So any two meridians you choose meet at the poles.
The number 0 and 8 - depending on the fonts, though.
It stops at the poles because on the other side of the planet Zero longtitude,or GMT, runs from north pole to south pole.
it was made in 1959
US Mountain Time - is (Greenwich Mean Time) GMT -7 hours, ie. 7 hours behind Greenwich, England.. Nigeria is (Greenwich Mean Time) GMT +1 hours, ie. 1 hours ahead of Greenwich, England.. US Mountain Time is 8 hours behind Nigeria. (Daylight savings not taken into account.)
countries and states and water are on the lines of latitude and longitude.
That point is in the Gulf of Guinea off the coast of West Africa, about 300 miles south of Accra, Ghana. We missed today's local conditions and forecast, but being on the equator and at sea, you can be sure that the climate there is quite warm and sticky.

It depends on where you are in the world as there are different time zones. For example, here in the Pacific Time Zone (UTC -8) it is currently 7:42 PM, Sunday, January 29, 2012. However, in lands such as East Asia, it is already Monday, January 30, 2012. So currently tomorrow could be January 30,...
No reason that I can think of. I've crossed it about 20 times, and am still here to tell the tale.

It runs up the middle of the Pacific Ocean only
You will go back in time which you will not understand which causes dasavou.
That's because if you went all the way around Earth in the other direction, you would eventually end up subtracting a total of 24 hours in time zone adjustments.
