В МСА Апплтон-Ошкош-Нина [Appleton-Oshkosh-Neenah MSA (MSA)] - 358,3 тыс. человек (2000). Административный центр [ county seat] округа Уиннебаго [Winnebago County] (с 1847). Торгово-промышленный центр. Бумажная и производство детской одежды ("Ош кош би гош" [ OshKosh B'Gosh]), молочных продуктов, упаковочных материалов ("Кёрвуд" [Curwood, Inc.]), мусоровозов ("Лич" [Leach Co.]), большегрузых грузовиков ("Ошкош трак" [Oshkosh Truck Corp.]) и др. Курорт. Аэропорт [Wittman Regional Airport]. Отделение Висконсинского университета [ Wisconsin, University of] (1871). С конца XVII в. регион активно осваивали французские торговцы пушниной. В 1836 на месте французской торговой фактории [ trading post] основано постоянное поселение, названное Атенс [Athens] (в 1840 переименовано в честь вождя племени меномини [ Menominee]). Статус поселка [ village] с 1846, города [ city] с 1853. Развивался как центр деревообработки. Крупная немецкая община [ German-Americans]. Среди достопримечательностей - городской музей [Oshkosh Public Museum], Центр искусств и дендрарий Пейна [Paine Art Center and Arboretum] (здесь представлены образцы английской и французской живописи XIX в.), реставрированное здание "Гранд-опера" [Grand Opera House]. Ежегодный летний авиафестиваль [EAA Fly-In Convention], который проводит Ассоциация экспериментальной ассоциации [Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)], также содержащая музей авиации [EAA Air Adventure Museum].

    [br]
    b. 6 September 1892 Bradford, England
    d. 21 April 1965 Edinburgh, Scotland
    [br]
    English physicist awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for his discovery of the ionospheric layer, named after him, which is an efficient reflector of short radio waves, thereby making possible long-distance radio communication.
    [br]
    After early ambitions to become a professional cricketer, Appleton went to St John's College, Cambridge, where he studied under J.J.Thompson and Ernest Rutherford. His academic career interrupted by the First World War, he served as a captain in the Royal Engineers, carrying out investigations into the propagation and fading of radio signals. After the war he joined the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, as a demonstrator in 1920, and in 1924 he moved to King's College, London, as Wheatstone Professor of Physics.
    In the following decade he contributed to developments in valve oscillators (in particular, the "squegging" oscillator, which formed the basis of the first hard-valve time-base) and gained international recognition for research into electromagnetic-wave propagation. His most important contribution was to confirm the existence of a conducting ionospheric layer in the upper atmosphere capable of reflecting radio waves, which had been predicted almost simultaneously by Heaviside and Kennelly in 1902. This he did by persuading the BBC in 1924 to vary the frequency of their Bournemouth transmitter, and he then measured the signal received at Cambridge. By comparing the direct and reflected rays and the daily variation he was able to deduce that the Kennelly- Heaviside (the so-called E-layer) was at a height of about 60 miles (97 km) above the earth and that there was a further layer (the Appleton or F-layer) at about 150 miles (240 km), the latter being an efficient reflector of the shorter radio waves that penetrated the lower layers. During the period 1927–32 and aided by Hartree, he established a magneto-ionic theory to explain the existence of the ionosphere. He was instrumental in obtaining agreement for international co-operation for ionospheric and other measurements in the form of the Second Polar Year (1932–3) and, much later, the International Geophysical Year (1957–8). For all this work, which made it possible to forecast the optimum frequencies for long-distance short-wave communication as a function of the location of transmitter and receiver and of the time of day and year, in 1947 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics.
    He returned to Cambridge as Jacksonian Professor of Natural Philosophy in 1939, and with M.F. Barnett he investigated the possible use of radio waves for radio-location of aircraft. In 1939 he became Secretary of the Government Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, a post he held for ten years. During the Second World War he contributed to the development of both radar and the atomic bomb, and subsequently served on government committees concerned with the use of atomic energy (which led to the establishment of Harwell) and with scientific staff.
