Where can you find research on antarctic caves or lava tubes at East 99 degrees 50 minutes 19 seconds South 66 degrees 33 minutes 11 seconds?
Most likely in learned-journals dedicated to, or including, research into the continent's geology and geography; but the papers might not carry any information on the caves' interiors.
There are five named lines of latitude. The Equator at zero degrees. The Tropic of Cancer at 23 degrees 26 minutes 16 seconds north latitude. This is the northernmost sub-point of the Sun on the northern hemisphere Summer Solstice. The Tropic of Capricorn at 23 degrees 26 minutes 16 seconds South latitude. The Arctic Circle at 66 degrees 33 degrees 44 minutes north. The Antarctic Circle at 66 degrees 33 minutes 44 seconds south. If…
The Arctic Circle is the parallel of latitude that runs 66° 33' 44" North of the Equator, and the Antarctic Circle is the parallel of latitude that runs 66° 33' 44" South of the Equator. 66 1/2 N and 66 1/2 S The latitude of the Arctic Circle is set at 66 degrees, 33 minutes, 44 seconds north of the equator. The Antarctic Circle is set at 66 degrees, 33 minutes, 44 seconds south of…
Each degree is equal to 60 minutes, each minute is equal to 60 seconds; to convert seconds to minutes, divide the seconds by 60 and add to the minutes. Ex. (Assume the asterisk (*) is a degree sign) 51* 43' 20" 51* + 43' + (20/60)' 51* + 43' + (1/3)' Answer: 51* 43 (1/3)' Hopefully this is answering the question you had. If you want to convert Minutes and seconds into decimal degrees, use…
What latitudes are between the Arctic Circle and the North Pole and the Antarctic Circle and the South Pole?
Earth location points are given in Degrees Longitude and Degrees Latitude Traditionally they are expressed in Degrees, minutes, seconds, 1 degree = 60 minutes 1 minute = 60 seconds > Conversion Example: 15 Degrees 25 minutes = 15 + 25/60 degrees = 15.4167 degrees (decimal) 15 degrees 25 minutes 10 seconds = 15 + 25/60 + 10/3600 degrees = 15.4194 degrees (decimal)
Works on the same principle as "60 seconds = 1 minute and 60 minutes = 1 hour (or degree in this case)... So for example: 2 degrees, 45 Minutes and 20 seconds is worked as follows: Now, 20 seconds = 0.33 minutes (i.e. 20/60); add to 45 minutes to get 45.33 minutes.. 45.33 minutes = 45.33/60 degrees = 0.7555 degrees. Therefore, final answer is 2 + 0.7555 = 2.7555 degrees.... Hope this helps!!
Degrees of longitude or latitude can be further subdivided just like any other angle: According to the resolution chosen, They can be expressed: in degrees and decimal fractions of degrees, in degrees, minutes, and decimal fractions of minutes, Or in degrees, minutes, seconds, and decimal fractions of seconds.
The latitude and longitude are input in degrees, so you might need to convert to degrees from degrees:minutes:seconds. There are 60 seconds in 1 minute and 60 minutes in 1 degree. So, for example: 65:45:36 south latitude converts to -(65 degrees + (45 minutes * (1 degree/60 minutes)) + (36 seconds * (1 minute/60 seconds) * (1 degree/60 minutes))) = -65.76 degrees latitude
