This means the coastline can be edited to remove insignificant water. * Note - Generally companies set a maximum distance that they are interested in checking (i.e.2) You can determine what distances you want to check (Ex. once youre more than 10 miles inland, how far the property is from the shoreline according to the distance measure selected during the setup of the account. Availability: All coastal States (Atlantic, Pacific and the Gulf Coast) A custom shoreline can be developed for your account so that only water that your company considers coastal will be used.To learn more about our reports, please click on the links below. Description: This is a text statement describing the distance to the nearest shoreline (ex: Within 1 mile to shore).shoreline can be customized to meet your underwriting requirements. Index: When setting up an account, CDS can set the distances to check: (i.e. This number tells how many distances it has checked.This article sets forth the complementary need for new measures. On one side, rising social tensions, recurring financial crises and ecological disaster; on the other, the progressive unfolding and development of human capacity in harmony with Nature.The deficiencies of GDP as a measure are welldocumented by leading economists Kuznets, Tobin, Tinbergen and many others; but, unfortunately, decision-making still remains largely based on GDP, valid during 1930-70 perhaps, but certainly inappropriate today.
Unlike conventional paper-based lookups, the Risk Meter Online provides underwriters and agents with accurate, efficient and defendable positions up to 90% faster than existing methodologies.
As an example of how they are used, radiometric dates from geologically simple, fossiliferous Cretaceous rocks in western North America are compared to the geological time scale.
To get to that point, there is also a historical discussion and description of non-radiometric dating methods.
We propose new composite indicator, HEWI, which can be used to guide decision-making, which retains the strengths associated with GDP, while substantially enhancing its value as a measure of human economic development.
HEWI monitors progress on factors that contribute prominently to present economic welfare — household consumption, government welfare-related expenditure, income inequality and unemployment — as well as factors that have the potential to significantly enhance long term sustainability — education, fossil fuel energy efficiency and net household savings.
