Slide 1:

TIME AROUND THE WORLD.

Slide 2:

A time zone is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Time zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. What is a time zone? Each color is a different Time Zone

Time Zones run in the same direction as longitude lines. The times zones are generally divided by 15⁰ longitude. There are total 24 time zones. :

Time Zones run in the same direction as longitude lines. The times zones are generally divided by 15⁰ longitude. There are total 24 time zones.

Slide 4:

CALCULATION AND COMPARISON OF LOCAL TIMES

Slide 5:

LOCAL TIME Local time   is a form of  solar time  that corrects the variations of  local apparent time , forming a uniform time scale at a specific longitude.

Slide 6:

Longitudes & Meridians Longitudes are the imaginary lines that run east and west from the prime meridian and each longitude is called a meridian and there are 360 longitudes .

Slide 7:

In 1° longitudinal difference, time difference is 4’ So, if a place has 30°E longitude then, In 30° longitudinal difference, time difference is 30 x 4= 120’ i.e 2 hours. And since it’s 30°E so its 2hours ahead of greenwich. Time difference

Slide 8:

INTERNATIONAL DATE LINE

Slide 9:

The International Date Line (IDL) is an imaginary line of navigation on the surface of the Earth that runs from the North Pole to the South Pole and demarcates the change of one calendar day to the next. It passes through the middle of the Pacific Ocean, roughly following the 180° line of longitude but deviating to pass around some territories and island groups.

Slide 10:

The IDL is roughly based on the meridian of 180° longitude, roughly down the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and halfway around the world from the Greenwich meridian. In many places, the IDL follows the 180° meridian exactly. However, in other places, the IDL deviates east or west away from that meridian. These various deviations generally accommodate the political and/or economic affiliations of the affected areas.

Slide 11:

GREENWICH MEAN TIME

Greenwich mean time:

Greenwich mean time Greenwich Mean Time  ( GMT ) is the mean solar time at th e Royal observatory in Greenwich London . GMT was formerly used as the international civil time standard, now superseded in that function by coordinated universal time ( UTC ) . Today GMT is considered equivalent to UTC for UK civil purposes (but this is not formalised) and for navigation is considered equivalent to UT1 (the modern form of mean solar time at 0° longitude); these two meanings can differ by up to 0.9 s. Consequently, the term GMT should not be used for precise purposes.

Slide 13:

Originally, astronomers considered a GMT day to start at noon while for almost everyone else it started at midnight. To avoid confusion, the name Universal time  was introduced to denote GMT as counted from midnight. Astronomers preferred the old convention to simplify their observational data, so that each night was logged under a single calendar date. Today Universal Time usually refers to UTC or UT1.

Slide 14:

LOSING A DAY AND GAINING A DAY

Losing a Day And Gaining a Day:

Losing a Day And Gaining a Day While travelling, if we move towards east of prime meridian, we lose time or lose a day, but on the other hand if we move towards west of prime meridian, we gain time or gain a day. Let’s understand better with the help of an example….

Slide 16:

Suppose you are a citizen of New Zealand, a country in southwestern Pacific Ocean. It’s your birthday today, you are travelling from New Zealand to Hawaii which is situated in eastern Pacific Ocean. Then in this case you will gain 23 hours i.e. approximately a whole day and you could now relive your birthday. EXAMPLE

Slide 18:

Just as sunflowers turn their heads to catch every sunbeam, so too have we discovered a simple way to get more from our sun. We've learned to save energy and enjoy sunny summer evenings by switching our clocks an hour forward in the summer.

Slide 19:

WHY DST ? Daylight Saving Time (DST) is used to save energy and make better use of daylight. It was first used in 1908 in Thunder Bay, Canada. The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time (called "Summer Time" many places in the world) is to make better use of daylight. We change our clocks during the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Countries have different change dates. DST normally adds 1 hour to standard time with the purpose of making better use of daylight and conserving energy. This means that the sunrise and sunset are one hour later, on the clock, than the day before.

Slide 20:

The idea of daylight saving was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin during his sojourn as an American delegate in Paris in 1784, in an essay, "An Economical Project”. In the essay, he suggested, although jokingly, that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning, making use of the natural morning light instead. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

Slide 21:

In 1895, New Zealand scientist George Vernon Hudson presented a paper to the Wellington Philosophical Society, proposing a two-hour shift forward in October and a two-hour shift back in March. There was interest in the idea, but it was never followed through. GEORGE HUDSON

Slide 22:

Germany became the first country to introduce DST when clocks were turned ahead 1 hour on  April 30, 1916 . The rationale was to minimize the use of artificial lighting in order to save fuel for the war effort during World War I. The idea was quickly followed by the  UK and many other countries, including  France. Many countries reverted back to standard time after World War I, and it wasn’t until the next World War that DST made its return in most of Europe. GERMANY: THE FIRST COUNTRY TO USE DST

DST Worldwide:

DST Worldwide Today approximately 70 countries utilize Daylight Saving Time in at least a portion of the country. The only major industrialized country not to have introduced daylight saving is Japan .

Not in the Tropics:

Not in the Tropics Equatorial and tropical countries (lower latitudes) do not observe Daylight Saving Time since the daylight hours are similar during every season, so there is no advantage to moving clocks forward during the summer .

Slide 25:

In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1 am Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It starts the last Sunday in March, and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment . DST IN EUROPE

Slide 26:

21/1/2017 26 TIMEWHEEL

TIMEWHEEl. What THIS MEAN?:

TIMEWHEEl. What THIS MEAN? 27 The Timewheel is one of the world’s largest hourglasses , situated in Budapest next to City Park right of Heroes’ Square and behind the Palace of Art on the site of a former statue of Lenin that now stands in Memento Park . It is made of granite , steel and glass and weighs 60 tons. The sand flows from the upper to the lower glass chamber for one year. The sand runs out on New Year’s Eve and the Timewheel is then turned 180 degrees so the flow of the sand can resume for the next year.

Slide 28:

28 The turning is done by manual power using steel cables and it takes roughly 45 minutes for 4 people to complete the half turn . The Timewheel was unveiled on 1 may 2004 to commemorate the historic enlargement of the European Union that admitted Hungary to the EU. The idea and the building of the Timewheel is marked by Janos Herner the architectural design of the statue was done by Istvan Janaky. The Nima Sand Museum which opened in 1991 also has a 1 year hourglass in Nima Shimane Prefecture Japan…

INDIA INDIA

I:

I INDIA! The great INDIA or what we call HINDUSTAN, the land of love, the land of peace, the land of harmony, the land of god is an amazing place. Present in south Asia this country is really huge. Going on the topic, India’s IST is chosen 82.5 east And it is also well known that time difference between each longitude is 4 minutes so multiplying this difference by IST we get- 82.5*4=330 minutes = 5 hours 30 minutes

the:

the So, we can conclude from this calculation that India’s UTC (universal time coordinated) is +5:30. So the first question that arises is that why positive i.e. why +5:30, this is because of the simple reason that India lies on the East of Prime meridian so that is why positive. So what can we calculate using this UTC? Well it has a great relevance in comparing time of different countries. Let understand this by an example- Imagine time in Greenwich is 12a.m. so how can we calculate time in India? Simple. Add the UTC. So time in India at that moment would be 5:30a.m.

Slide 32:

Now lets compare it with Serbia. Now we wont add directly 5:30 in the given time, we now need to calculate how much is the time difference between India and Serbia and as we know that it is 3:30 so if there's 12a.m. in Serbia it would be 3:30a.m. How simple!

Slide 33:

DST or Daylight saving time is thing we have read about and now we need to see this topic in relevance of nation. So its also a simple fact that in India we don’t use DST, we don’t adjust our clocks in summers or winters ; mostly American and European courtiers do all this. The last time we Indians used this DST was during the world war-ll mainly 1942-45. DST IN INDIA

THE FIVE TIME ZONES OF CHINA. The official national standard time is called  Beijing Time  domestically and  China Standard Time  (CST) internationally. The special administrative regions (SARs) maintain their own time authorities, with standards called  Hong Kong Time and  Macau Standard Time respectively. There is no difference between Beijing time and the times in the SARs. In addition, double time standard is used in Xinjiang, with the alternative time standard being two hours slower than the Beijing Time (UTC+06:00), which is called  Ürümqi Time  or "Xinjiang Time“

Slide 56:

UNITED KINGDOM.

ABOUT THE COUNTRY Many sources state that that Great Britain was the first country to use standard time (uniform time for places in roughly the same longitude). It was the railways, and not the post office, that enforced clocks’ uniformity throughout Great Britain.  There was a demand to use “British Time” throughout the country. Dr William Hyde Wollaston (1766–1828) was credited with the original idea, which was popularized by Abraham Follett Osler (1808–1903). Railroad companies drew up their timetables and set their station clocks in accordance with  Greenwich Mean Time  (GMT).

TIME ZONES:

TIME ZONES The UK's time zone during daylight saving time (DST) is British Summer Time (BST). GMT has no offset from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The UK switches from GMT to British Summer Time(BST), which is UTC+1.

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME:

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME The UK observes daylight saving time (DST) as part of the European Union’s (EU) daylight saving schedule, which starts on the last Sunday of March each year when the clocks move one hour ahead from 1am (or 01:00) to 2am (02:00) local time. The clocks then move one hour back from 2am (02:00) to 1am (01:00) local time when DST ends on the last Sunday of October each year. Daylight saving time is commonly known as “summer time” or “British Summer Time” in the UK.

TIME DIFFERENCE:

TIME DIFFERENCE GREENWICH - There is no time difference between United Kingdom and Royal Borough of Greenwich, UK. For Example:- 1:41 PM  Tuesday, in United Kingdom is 1:41 PM  Tuesday, in Royal Borough of Greenwich, UK

Slide 61:

SERBIA - Serbia is 1 hour ahead of United Kingdom. For Example:- 2:04 PM  Tuesday, in United Kingdom is 3:04 PM  Tuesday, in Serbia

Slide 62:

INDIA- India is 5 hours and 30 minutes ahead of United Kingdom For Example:- 2:09 PM  Tuesday, in United Kingdom is 7:39 PM  Tuesday, in India

New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia observe DST every year.
