George Everest

He was there per 1852 when one settled down that the Everest was, with 29,002 feet (8,840 meters), the highest mountain of the planet, after a study of British and Indian topographers, who drew their conclusions by means of trigonometrical method. Call until then Tip XV by the experts, the mountain received the name of Everest in honor to George Everest, an old general topographer of the India administered by the British Empire. For the nepales it is, however, from 1960 Sagarmatha, that means &quot literally; more discharge than cielos" , and the tibetanos talk about on the other hand to her like Chomolongma (" mother Earth goddess ") from before outside baptized Everest. How the Everest will be moderate Whereas the first studies took control of trigonometrical methods and of leveling, and most recent with the system of global positioning, Nepal now glides to use so much those of leveling as the GPS when it is necessary, to avoid controversies. Within the framework of the project, the Executive tries to settle down for July of the 2012 and by means of the leveling method height of three points of rrencia in the south of the mountain, a strategy that will later make the use easier of the GPS. The three chosen points are Namche, Taksindo and PK, all of them near the base of the mountain.

Also other well-known places located in an elevated position will be moderate something more than those three points, with the aim of increasing the precision. Once the altitude above sea level is determined of the points of rrencia, will require the ascent to the Everest of mountain ctuar measurements with GPS, including the top, where an equipment of this technology will settle. Nepal, whose territory does not kiss any ocean, takes like rrencia from the level from the sea the Bay from Bengal, in the neighbor India. The topographers also will have in consideration that the altitude of the mountain range of the Himalayas increases to every year about four millimeters due to the movement of the tectonic plates. The Himalayas formed about 50 million ago years when they hit the plates indoasitica and eurasitica, and the push of the first plate continues nowadays, reason why the mountains continue growing.
