Geography & Earth Science Neckties

Developed directly from NASA space satellite photographs taken far above the earth, these ties show the deserts, coastal waterways, canyons, and rock formations which make up the delicate shell of our planet.

Dry Wadis Necktie - Silk - $50.00

This TerraTie features the dry drainage valleys or "wadis" located in Yemen on the Arabian Peninsula. This landscape is a good example of the relict effect of a previous climate change. Between 17,000 and 35,000 years ago, heavy precipitation allowed the formation of the drainage pattern. During that period, pre-domesticated cattle and hippoptamuses fed on lush vegetation found along many shallow lakes. The region slowly experienced increasing periods of aridity, the most recent being the past 6,000 years. Today, this landscape receives less than three inches of rainfall annually.

The Story Behind the Sale

A tie by any other name - Help me collect the word for silk and necktie in many languages. I would also love to be able to say hello and and thank you! Any corrections would be appreciated: cravat (French), cravate, tail, neck tie, slips (Norway), ensfarvet silkeslips, Syvfoldede slips (Danish), The Italian word for "tie" is "cravatta" ("cravatte" for the plural), soie, stropdas, stropda (Netherlands), Seiden krawatte, silkki, solmio, silke slips, sioda, kravato (Dutch), corbata (Spanish), solmio, carbhat, gravata, dasi (Indonesia), tselk gapstuk (Russian) krevat, krawat (Poland), gravata (Portugal), binder, kurbata (Tagalog), croata, ca vat, kpabatka.... from a customer..."stropda (Netherlands)" and "kravato (Dutch)" are wrong, it is both "stropdas". "Silk necktie" in Dutch is "zijden stropdas", Czech language it is: "kravata" or less common also "vázanka". Silk is "hedvábí", silk tie is "hedvábná kravata". I also know Slovenian (ex-Yugoslavia country) words "kravata", silk is "svila", together it is "svilena kravata". It works also in Croatian. In Hawaiian, "Thank you" is "Mahalo", "You are welcome" is "He mea 'ole", silk is "kilika" and necktie (the closest match) is "lei 'a'i". Gary: The German word for necktie is Die Krawatte. However, during my trips to Germany, I have learned that the alternative word is the one that is most frequently used: Der Schlips. Plural is Die Schlipse. tselk gapstuk (Russian)
