Sender Donebach

Der Sender Donebach ist ein inaktiver Langwellensender der Media Broadcast GmbH in Donebach, einem Ortsteil von Mudau im Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis. Er strahlte vom 10. März 1967 bis 1. Januar 2015 das Programm des Deutschlandfunks zuletzt auf der Frequenz 153 kHz aus.

Als der Deutschlandfunk am 1. Januar 1962 auf Sendung ging, standen nur zwei Sendeanlagen zur Ausstrahlung des Programms zur Verfügung:

Bis zum Jahresende 1962 konnte die Deutsche Bundespost, die für den Sendebetrieb des Deutschlandfunks zuständig war, in Mainflingen auch einen Langwellensender aufbauen, der auf der Frequenz 151 kHz am unteren Ende des Langwellenbandes sendete. Dieser Sender stellte jedoch nur eine Übergangslösung dar, während weiter nach einem geeigneten Senderstandort gesucht wurde.

Diesen fand die Bundespost schließlich auf einer Hochebene bei Donebach im Odenwald. Der ehemalige Feldflugplatz in über 500 m ü. NN galt als ideal, um von dort aus die BRD und die DDR vollständig versorgen zu können. 1965 bis 1967 wurde die Sendeanlage auf dem Areal errichtet und am 10. März 1967 auf der Frequenz 151 kHz in Betrieb genommen. Als Antenne diente damals eine Rundstrahlantenne aus vier Masten mit je 200 m Höhe, deren Spitzen über gespannte Seile miteinander verbunden waren. Der mittlere dieser vier Masten wurde mit der Sendeenergie gespeist.

Durch den Betrieb des Senders auf 151 kHz kam es bei den auf 155 kHz arbeitenden Senders Braşov in Rumänien zu Gleichkanalstörungen. Um diese Störungen klein zu halten, durfte der Sender Donebach nicht mit der angestrebten Sendeleistung von 250 kW, sondern nur mit 70 kW arbeiten. Da jedoch auch mit dieser reduzierten Sendeleistung Gleichkanalstörungen nicht vermieden werden konnten, wurde die Sendeanlage 1972 so umgebaut, dass die in Richtung Braşov abgestrahlte Leistung geringer war. Hierfür wurden zwei der bis dahin vier Sendemasten abgebaut und die beiden verbliebenen Masten mit einer schirmartigen Dachkapazität aus Kupferhohlseilen ausgestattet. Der nordwestliche Mast arbeitete als Strahler, der südöstliche als Reflektor in Richtung Braşov. Dies ermöglichte den Betrieb mit 250 kW Sendeleistung ohne unzulässige Störungen.

Im Genfer Wellenplan von 1975 wurde dem Sender Donebach die Frequenz 153 kHz offiziell zugeteilt

. Gleichzeitig wurden neue Leistungsgrenzen festgelegt. Tagsüber durfte mit 500 kW und nachts mit 250 kW Leistung gesendet werden, wobei tagsüber eine geringe und nachts eine starke Ausblendung in Richtung Rumänien erfolgen musste.

Um diese Auflagen zu erfüllen, wurden 1982 zwei neue Sendegeräte für 250 kW Ausgangsleistung mit Pulsdauermodulation installiert, die wesentlich wirtschaftlicher arbeiten als die bislang verwendeten Sendegeräte. Außerdem wurden beide Antennenmasten von 200 m auf 363 m aufgestockt. Hierzu wurden die Masten abgebaut und dann unter Verwendung neuer Elemente wiederaufgebaut, wobei die alten Elemente die oberen Teile der Sendemasten bilden.

Nach der Aufstockung stellten die beiden selbststrahlenden Sendemasten der Sendeanlage Donebach mit einer Höhe von 363 m die höchsten Bauwerke der Bundesrepublik dar. Seit der Wiedervereinigung belegen sie nach dem Berliner Fernsehturm mit 368 m Höhe den zweiten Platz. Sie sind, wie die beiden Sendemasten der ähnlich ausgeführten Anlage in Aholming, geerdete Konstruktionen, in welche die abzustrahlende Hochfrequenzenergie in etwa 300 m Höhe über die Halteseile eingespeist wurde.

Die Trägerfrequenz des Senders wurde von einer Rubidium-Atomuhr hergeleitet, die sich im Stationsgebäude befand. Sie war damit ausreichend präzise, um (wie auch die Trägerfrequenz von DCF77) als Eichfrequenz zu gelten.

Der Sender Donebach versorgte Deutschland fast flächendeckend mit Ausnahme von Ostbayern. Darüber hinaus war er in der Schweiz, im Nordosten Frankreichs, in Luxemburg, Belgien, den Niederlanden und weiten Teilen Großbritanniens zu empfangen. Empfangsprobleme im östlichen Bayern resultierten aus der notwendigen Leistungsreduzierung in Richtung Südost, um Störungen mit dem auf der gleichen Frequenz arbeitenden Sender Braşov in Rumänien zu verhindern. In Bayern wurde daher 1979 mit dem Sender Erching ein zusätzlicher Langwellensender für den Deutschlandfunk in Betrieb genommen, der 1989 durch den Sender Aholming ersetzt wurde.

Die Kommission zur Ermittlung des Finanzbedarfs der Rundfunkanstalten (KEF) hatte angeordnet, die Langwellensender der Deutschlandradio-Programme über Langwelle mit Ablauf des Jahres 2014 abzuschalten. Grund war die abnehmende Nutzung dieser kostenintensiven Technik angesichts der fortschreitenden Digitalisierung des Hörfunks tenderize tough beef. Die Einsparungen sollen nun in den weiteren Ausbau des DAB+-Sendernetzes fließen.

Bei der Abschaltung kam es zu einer Unregelmäßigkeit. Zwar wurde die Direktzuführung des Tonsignals wie geplant am 31. Dezember 2014 um 23:55 Uhr beendet, doch infolge des vermeintlichen Signalausfalles schaltete die Sendertechnik automatisch auf Ballempfang um und sendete so noch bis in das neue Jahr hinein das Programm des Deutschlandfunks. Erst um 0:27 Uhr wurde der Sender manuell abgeschaltet. Gegen 5:00 Uhr morgens am 1. Januar wurde der Sender Donebach durch die automatische Umschaltung von Nacht- auf Tagbetrieb erneut aktiv, bis er etwa eine Stunde später endgültig abgeschaltet wurde.

Beim Sender Aholming auf der Langwellenfrequenz 207 kHz kam es zu ähnlichen Effekten.

Laut einer Meldung vom 16. Februar 2014 ist eine künftige Ausstrahlung von DAB+ vom Standort Donebach geplant.

«Балто 3: Крылья перемен» (англ. Balto III: Wings of Change) — американский полнометражный мультфильм 2004 года режиссёра Фила Вайнштейна, триквел мультфильма «Балто». Как и «Балто-2», фильм не предназначался для кинопроката и сразу был выпущен на видеоносителях.

Балто и его сын Коди узнают о том, что самолёт может свести на нет актуальность собачьих саней по перевозке почты. Неунывающие герои решают устроить гонку-соревнование между упряжкой бывалых псов и опытным летчиком по имени Дюк. При этом Балто очарован самолётом и мечтает сам на нём летать.

Параллельно друг Балто, гусь Борис, влюбляется в гусыню Стеллу, но стесняется ей признаться, что не летает от страха перед высотой. Борис случайно попадает в мешок с почтой Дюка, когда Стелла узнала что Борис врал ей. Но на обратном пути пилот заблудился в тумане и разбился в лесу.

Ликующие псы добираются до финиша первыми: они смогли доказать своё превосходство над железной летающей птицей. Но Балто сразу понял, что с Дюком и его самолетом что-то случилось. Он решает отправиться его спасать. Коди и его соработники-псы отказались идти, поскольку им дороже работа. Балто рассержен на сына за эгоизм, но не уговаривает его идти. С ним отправляются Стелла и Мак с Лаком, которые испугались самолёта в момент крушения. Дженна, узнав о решении Балто, начинает уговаривать сына передумать.

Балто находит Дюка и начинает увозить его на санях из куска металла, так как он сломал колено. Коди и его собаки примчались в последний момент и привязались к саням, после чего доехали до Нома. Мечта Балто сбылась, Дюк сделал его своим компаньоном и он увидел землю с высоты птичьего полета, а Борис наконец признался Стелле в своём страхе перед высотой и она его простила за враньё.

В России сначала издавался на VHS в авторском одноголосом переводе Сергея Визгунова. На DVD был издан в 2004 году компанией «Премьер Видео Фильм» и переиздан компанией «Юниверсал Пикчерз Рус». Российская телепремьера состоялась на телеканале СТС 18 августа 2012 года.

Graslei e Korenlei

Il Graslei e il Korenlei, letteralmente “Riva delle Erbe” e “Riva del Grano”, sono le due banchine che sorgono sulle sponde del fiume Leie, lungo il suo corso attraverso il centro della città fiamminga di Gand, in Belgio.

Comprese fra il Grasbrug, “Ponte delle Erbe”, ed il Sint-Michielsbrug, “Ponte di San Michele”, entrambe le rive erano infatti chiamate dai battellieri comunemente Tusschen Brugghen, “Tra i Ponti”. Costituivano il vero nucleo commerciale della città, svolgendo le funzioni di porto d’attracco, carico e scarico delle merci destinate ai mercati del centro della città. Vi sorsero subito, dal XIII secolo, numerose Case delle potenti Corporazioni locali, che ben presto trasformarono questa parte del fiume nel vero centro economico e pulsante di Gand.

Oggi sono una delle parti più turistiche e interessanti di Gand, tanto da essere state riconosciute dallo Stato Belga nel 1952 come “Paesaggio protetto” (beschermd als landschap) e nel 1994 come “Città protetta” (stadsgezicht beschermd).

Dall’XI secolo questo tratto del Leie si è sviluppato nel suo ruolo commerciale grazie alla sua centralissima posizione di fronte al Korenmarkt, “Mercato del Grano”, e quindi alla Chiesa di San Nicola, frequentata dai commercianti, marinai e membri delle corporazioni. Successivamente il permesso di attracco delle navi, che risalivano il fiume, e di stoccaggio del grano che la Gand aveva acquisito per le Fiandre, trasformarono la città nel centro primario del commercio del grano di tutta la contea, e questa zona nel centro mercantile assoluto della città. I mercanti del grano

, la cui mercanzia arrivava in gran parte dalla Piccardia e dell’Artois, dovevano attraccare in questo luogo e pagare la Concessione e una Gabella, o Tapel (Tappa), sorta di tassa di scarico e vendita (pari a un quarto del carico), direttamente agli esattori municipali che avevano il loro ufficio nella celebre Spijker, casa lungo il Graslei. Nei dintorni si poterono contare fino a 150 depositi del grano, sia pubblici che privati (beerie).

La gabella venne abolita nella prima metà del XVIII secolo, ma l’importazione e il commercio del grano aveva già perso molto del suo vigore già dal XV secolo, quando le altre città fiamminghe iniziarono a trovare nuove vie di approvvigionamento del grano per sottrarsi alle pesanti tassazioni cittadine.

Il Graslei, o “Riva delle Erbe” Leaf Pendant Necklace, forma con la sua banchina, la riva destra del Leie e fu il primo porto di Gand a essere dotato, nel 1562, di una banchina in pietra. Ricevette questo nome solo nel XVIII secolo, fino ad allora era chiamata anch’essa, come l’altra riva opposta Korenlei, “Riva del Grano”.

Gli edifici monumentali, sede delle Corporazioni locali, vi sorsero a partire dal XIII secolo e nel XV-XVI secolo aggiunsero le facciate più belle; poi in parte modificate ed arricchite nel XVIII e XIX secolo, per essere restaurate in occasione dell’Esposizione universale di Gand del 1913.

I monumentali edifici che compongono la celebre infilata del Graslei sono, da nord a sud, o da sinistra verso destra:

Il Korenlei, o “Riva del Grano”, forma con la sua banchina, la riva sinistra del Leie, fino al XVIII secolo aveva questo nome anche la riva opposta, poi Graslei, “Riva delle Erbe”, a sottolineare la funzione di questo tratto del fiume. Il Korenlei è considerata la parte più antica di Gand. Fra gli edifici più interessanti si ricordano:

Jeremiah Arkham

Jeremiah Arkham is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character commonly appears in comic book titles associated with the superhero Batman. He is the director of Arkham Asylum, and he is the nephew of Amadeus Arkham, the Asylum’s founder.

He debuted in 1992 in Batman: Shadow of the Bat #1 during the four-part story arc “Batman: The Last Arkham” that kicked off the new series where he was created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle.[citation needed]

In Batman: The Last Arkham, Jeremiah is portrayed as the somewhat sadistic administrator of Arkham Asylum who has delusions that the criminals he houses could one day be housed in society. The Asylum had come into Jeremiah’s possession after his uncle Amadeus Arkham died after going mad. Jeremiah proceeded to demolish the asylum before rebuilding it with state-of-the-art systems to keep Arkham’s criminals, such as The Joker, The Scarecrow and Cornelius Stirk, contained.

Jeremiah’s background was touched upon briefly. Although not much is known about his prior history, the issue states that when he was a teenager he walked into a corner store being held up at gun point by an escaped inmate of the nearby Arkham Asylum, which was coincidentally run by his uncle. The gunman had already killed the storeowners, but when he went to shoot him, Jeremiah seemed to know all about the gunman’s past and talked the gunman out of shooting him. The gunman then proceeded to commit suicide and Jeremiah knew he would be destined to succeed his uncle as the head of Arkham Asylum.

Soon after the new Arkham is built, Batman stumbles across a series of murders resembling Zsasz’s MO. Zsasz (who also debuted in Shadow of the Bat #1) had been an inmate at Arkham Asylum for a long period, but the similarity was too much to ignore, so Batman fakes insanity to get into the asylum to investigate. However, Jeremiah is unaware of this plot and takes Batman’s insanity as genuine. Zsasz had actually been the murderer and had been getting out of Arkham by a series of underground tunnels put in place by the contractor on the asylum’s revamp. Zsasz

, upon hearing of Batman’s arrival, predicts it’s a set-up and begins to plant seeds of doubt and hatred towards Batman in Jeremiah Arkham’s mind. In addition to this, Jeremiah blames Batman for stopping his inmate’s rehabilitation. The situation erupts when Jeremiah locks Batman in a room and sets the inmates of Arkham on him, including Amygdala, The Riddler and others.

After the main storyline is wrapped up, and Zsasz uncovered, Batman questions whether Jeremiah is himself mad. Jeremiah denies it, but in the closing scene of the comic, he asks himself whether he will end up like his insane uncle and whether he is indeed mad as Batman suggested.

Jeremiah Arkham returned once again during Knightfall. His role began when he was held at gunpoint by The Joker after Arkham Asylum is attacked by Bane in order to free the asylum’s inmates. The Joker attempts to scare Jeremiah into madness and Jeremiah is only saved when Batman frees him from the Joker’s trap.

After this story arc, Jeremiah Arkham has appeared occasionally throughout Batman storylines. During Batman: No Man’s Land, he opened the Asylum gates, believing it was better for his patients to be at large in a mostly abandoned city than trapped in the Asylum with limited supplies. Most recently during the Batman: Battle for the Cowl, he envisions a plan to rebuild Arkham Asylum, after it was destroyed by himself (as the new Black Mask) following his capture and defeat by the new Batman.

He also starred in the 3-issue follow up, Arkham Reborn, written by David Hine and drawn by Jeremy Haun. The story starts with Jeremiah returning to Arkham Asylum after it has been destroyed by the Black Glove. On his return he finds that some of the patients are still there, including his three ‘special’ subjects that no one knows about: No-Face, Mirror-Man and the Hamburger Lady. Once back in his office, Jeremiah finds his office a mess, spooky graffiti on the mirror and the journal of Amadeus Arkham (his Uncle) on his desk, though he thought he had burnt it. He finds his uncle’s original plans for the asylum and decides it is an omen and thus starts to rebuild according to the plans.

The Asylum re-opens with the disgruntled blessing of the Gotham Shield Committee, consisting of Bruce Wayne (who was Thomas Elliot in disguise), D.A. Kate Spencer and Commissioner Gordon. He is also joined by Aaron Cash (head of Arkham security) and the new assistant director, Alyce Sinner.

As the Asylum gets more complete more accidents happen. The Raggedy Man is set loose, Clayface gets sick, Mr. Freeze’s room heats up and Killer Croc’s tank filtration breaks. As these events pass, Jeremiah becomes more stressed and unhinged, spending more time with his special patients.

Meanwhile, it is revealed that Alyce is having sexual relations with Black Mask. Once back at the asylum, she uses the computers to project the voice of Amadeus to the inmates and make them riot. Batman then intervenes and gets all the inmates back to their cells. Raggedy Man is found dead and Jeremiah is starting to fall apart. This is all part of the plan of Black Mask. Alyce reports back to him, apparently doing this for the money, and claims she also wants the asylum

. When he goes to talk to his special patients for some mental release he is confronted by a scary Jester figure (reminiscent of Joker). It is at this point he loses it. He is found by Batman and locked up with the other inmates in Arkham and Alyce is freed and made Director of the asylum.

In the end it turns out that his special patients were all a delusion and he also suffers with no recollection of when he is the Black Mask. He discovers this when Batman takes him to see the special three and after some intense moments Jeremiah attacks and “kills” them. Filled with remorse, Jeremiah is confronted with videotape of what had just occurred, courtesy of cameras hidden by a suspicious Cash. The video shows only himself, talking and attacking hallucinations. He then completely breaks down and breaks the Jester staff which lets out a gas. Upon awakening, Jeremiah remembers everything – during his sessions with inmates Hugo Strange (a master of chemicals and psychology) and Joker, he had been given the Jester’s staff, revealed to be coated in a chemical making the user very vulnerable to hypnotic suggestions. Strange and the Joker both manipulated Jeremiah, assaulting his weakened psyche: Strange encouraging an appetite for power and respect (resulting in the Black Mask personality), Joker encouraging his own style of insanity (manifesting as the Jester). Claiming to be back in control, Jeremiah is then put in intensive care. Zsasz, who had threatened him earlier

, comes to kill him and mark the scar inside his eyelid to remember him by. But by the time help arrives, Jeremiah has tied up Zsasz and delicately carved his initials there himself, proving the Black Mask is far from gone.

Jeremiah Arkham is locked up and left in the care of Alyce. He confesses to her that he is Black Mask and Zsasz is proof. She then kisses him and they embrace, Jeremiah pictured as the Black Mask. It remains to be seen if Jeremiah’s heavy exposure to the chemical in the staff merely made the Black Mask personality dominant, or if it has absorbed the others completely.

In The New 52 (a reboot of the DC Comics universe), a character resembling Jeremiah Arkham’s incarnation of the Black Mask was seen early on during an Arkham Asylum Breakout in the Night of the Owls storyline. However, Jeremiah Arkham was later seen in charge of Arkham Asylum instead of Alyce Sinner and not incarcerated within the building’s cells. Despite this, his history as the Black Mask was still intact. He is seen congratulating Batman’s decision on bringing the Joker to the asylum where he can receive “treatment” instead of dropping him off at a prison. Later during the Night of Owls event, Arkham is seen targeted by Talons as well as treating Roman Sionis, the first Black Mask. Sionis confirms Arkham’s having been the Black Mask during Richard Grayson’s time as Batman before Arkham is attacked by Talons. Arkham uses a Taser to fight off the Talons before being rescued by Batman.

Balad District, Somalia

Bal’ad District (Somali: Degmada Balcad) is one of the districts of Middle Shabelle region of Somalia. It is located about 36 kilometers northeast of the capital city of Mogadishu. The district is an area of 4,400 square kilometres (1,700 sq miles) with an estimated population of 642,000 and 82 villages.

The district passes one of the Somalia’s permanent rivers (Shabelle) which passes through the city of Bal-ad, nevertheless neighbours the Indian Ocean and has a long coast of about 70 km. The district is famous for agriculture, livestock and marine resources.

Bal’ad has one of the many nature reserves of the country which is located on the eastern bank of the Shabelle River, immediately south of the town. It has been established by the Somali Ecological Society in 1985, at which that time covered an area of 42 ha and later extended to 190 ha in 1987. The site consists of one of the few patches of riverine forest remaining on the Shabelle River and the surrounding scrub savannah.

The principal trees of the riverine forest include Acacia elatior, Ficus sycamorus, Garcinia livingstonei

, Mimusops fruticosa and Tamarindus indica, while the surrounding scrub consists of more stunted Acacia nilotica with a dense undergrowth of herbs and tall grasses.

The reserve included a field-centre which, from 1985 to 1990, burning, cutting and grazing within the site was controlled and there were some signs of recovery of the forest and an increase in wildlife populations.

The natural ports of Ceel Macaan and Ceel Cadde which located in the district were the main gates for the incoming and out going goods of Somalia, likewise Cisiley airport during the decade and half, when Mogadishu air and seaport were closed.

The Somalitex factory, whose 154 automated looms work 14 hours a day, turning out nearly 14 million meters (about 15 million yards) of cloth annually the Factory employed three thousand workers. The Somalitex futas vary in thickness, colour, and design and most shops in the marketplace stock them as well as the imported polyesters. The latter, although impractical in the tropical heat

, easily torn and expensive, seem to have captured the taste of Somali women by their bright patterns and varied textures.

Given the ideal climate for cotton plantation in Balcad, The state-owned textile plants at Balcad could supply the local market (now not operating). Textiles are produced at the SOMALTEX plant in Balcad which supplies virtually the entire domestic market. Balcad Textile Factory was later upgraded and funded by West Germany. SOMALITEX facilities were greatly expanded. It is considered among the best equipped textile plant in Africa. The investment in cotton showed fewer long-term results than the investment in bananas.

The Administration of Balcad District of the Middle Shebelle Region supported by the Somali Federal Government encourage the local and foreign investment in the Region.

Mont Ventoux

Il Mont Ventoux è un massiccio montuoso della Provenza, la cui cima raggiunge i 1.912 metri s.l.m.. Soprannominato dai francesi il “Gigante della Provenza” o anche il “Monte Calvo“, è situato a 20 km in linea d’aria a nord-est di Carpentras, ed è abbastanza lontano e isolato dalle altre cime della regione.

Il Ventoux è stato classificato Riserva della biosfera dall’UNESCO, nell’ambito del progetto “MAB” (Man and Biosphere), presentando una geologia e una flora particolari, nonché una fauna assai ricca. Fanno parte della Riserva anche le limitrofe prealpi di Vaucluse, il Plateau d’Albion e le caratteristiche Gorges de la Nesque, profonda incisione fluviale in roccia carsica.

La piana e i colli alla base del Ventoux sono rinomati per il vino (Côtes du Ventoux) e le uve da tavola.

Il nome sembrerebbe derivare da “vento“: il Maestrale (il Mistral in francese), soffia infatti sul suo crinale sommitale con continuità e grande violenza, raggiungendo e superando spesso i 160 km/h (la velocità massima raggiunta dal Mistral fu di 313 km/h, registrata il 20 marzo 1967) per poi diffondersi nella pianura sottostante, sino al mare.

Ma un’interpretazione più moderna e approfondita assegna l’origine del nome Ventoux al lemma pregallico ventur, poi passato nella lingua occitana, che significa “colui che si vede da lontano”. Numerosi studi e testimonianze d’epoca danno ormai pieno credito a questo etimo da molti anni. Anche nelle locali lingue provenzale e occitano il Monte non è chiamato Ventoux, bensì “Ventour”.

La prima ascensione di cui è rimasta traccia è quella effettuata a scopo mistico dal Petrarca il 26 aprile del 1336, lungo il boscoso versante settentrionale. Egli descrisse l’impresa nella lettera Ascesa al monte Ventoso.

Nel XV secolo sulla cima fu costruita una cappella dedicata alla Santa Croce.

Fin dal XII secolo, i cantieri navali di Tolone hanno utilizzato gli alberi che crescevano sui suoi pendii. Il monte fu rimboscato nel XIX secolo con la discutibile introduzione di Pini neri d’Austria e di Cedri, oggi largamente contestata da botanici ed ecologi. La parte sommitale è sprovvista di vegetazione arborea e arbustiva a causa del vento e delle vaste pietraie

, specialmente sul versante aprico. Ospita dal 1882 un osservatorio meteorologico. Ai piedi della montagna, sul lato Sud-ovest, si trova la celebre cappella romanica di S. Maria Maddalena, edificata attorno all’anno 1000.

Nel Settecento iniziarono le ascensioni-esplorazioni di diversi studiosi, fra i quali si ricordano principalmente:

La vegetazione del Mont Ventoux presenta molte particolarità strettamente locali. Pur raggiungendo, infatti, i 1910 m di altitudine, il Ventoux è un massiccio del tutto solitario, immerso in un clima decisamente mediterraneo. Esposto ai miti venti marini da Sud e al freddo Maestrale che lo investe da Nord, mostra un manto boschivo e un corteggio di specie che fondono e sovrappongono le serie vegetazionali dei vari piani altitudinali, i quali, a loro volta, hanno quote e caratteristiche floristico-associative alquanto desuete

.

Oltre ai suoli, al clima e all’azione del vento che sferza il lungo crinale, un altro elemento rende peculiare la copertura vegetale di questo monte: quello del suo distendersi da est a ovest, con due soli versanti opposti e un’unica, continua dorsale sommitale. Questa conformazione fa sì che uno dei versanti sia interamente esposto a mezzogiorno e perennemente soleggiato, mentre l’altro guardi a settentrione con un’insolazione assai ridotta.

Mentre il substrato del piano basale è costituito da un’alternarsi di colli marnoso-argillosi e di colli totalmente silicei (sabbie di SiO2 puro), tutto il massiccio del Ventoux è un blocco di calcare. La base della montagna, che dovrebbe essere ricoperta da una lecceta, è invece dominio di fitte colonie di pino d’Aleppo con frequenti intrusioni di pino marittimo (sui suoli acidi) e di roverella, con il leccio in netta minoranza e un considerevole corteggio erbaceo-arbustivo di specie tipiche della macchia mediterranea.

A partire dai 250/300 m s.l.m. della piana di base si possono delineare i diversi piani in una prima approssimazione di sintesi:

Il Ventoux presenta tre ascensioni, che sono state teatro di tappe importanti in molte competizioni ciclistiche, tra cui ovviamente il Tour de France.

Il Tour de France propone spesso l’ascensione di questa cima, celebre per le sue difficoltà tecniche dovute all’elevata pendenza della strada (media 7,7 % sino al 20% max) ed alla lunghezza (oltre 15 km), unita al calore che l’asfalto sprigiona nel mese di luglio, alla sensazione di ridotto ossigeno dovuta all’assenza di vegetazione nell’ultimo tratto e a volte al forte vento contrario.

I ciclisti del Tour scalarono il Ventoux per la prima volta nel 1951 lungo la tappa Montpellier-Avignone. Fra coloro che si sono fatti onore su questa salita troviamo Charly Gaul nel 1958, Raymond Poulidor nel 1965, Eddy Merckx nel 1970, Bernard Thévenet nel 1972, Eros Poli nel 1994 (autore di una fuga di 171 km in solitaria), Marco Pantani nel 2000, Richard Virenque nel 2002 e Chris Froome nel 2013.

Nell’edizione del 1967, il britannico Tommy Simpson morì sulla salita, a circa 2 km dalla vetta lungo il versante di Bedoin, per un arresto cardio-circolatorio causato dall’estrema fatica, da disidratazione e da sostanze dopanti assunte poco prima. Una piccola lapide a bordo strada lo ricorda. Lo stesso Eddy Merckx ebbe un malore in una sua vittoria women sleeveless dress.

L’ascensione più rapida è stata fatta il 10 giugno 2004 in una tappa a cronometro, quarta tappa del Giro del Delfinato, con i tempi seguenti:
