В анализаторе дрейф нулевого уровня определяется в основном изменением начального соотношения интенсивностей σ-компонент, которое в первую очередь обусловлено температурными изменениями.
I watched the smoke drift away, streaky and misshapen, and eventually realised that Solomon hadn’t answered me.
Я проследил, как дым уплывает в сторону – слоисто-бесформенный, – и вдруг сообразил, что Соломон мне так и не ответил.

We heard a scuffle and a crash, then indeed the slamming of a door, and found Mr. Aksoy stumbling up out of a drift of fragile Ottoman manuscripts with a purple lump on the side of his face.
Мы услышали шорох, удар, а потом хлопнула дверь, а мистер Аксой выкарабкался из-под обрушившейся на него лавины хрупких старинных свитков, растирая большую красную шишку на лбу.

Let the days move over - sadness and memory and pain recurred outside, and here, once more, before he went on to meet them he wanted to drift and be young.
Пусть дни бегут: печаль, воспоминания, боль — все это так, и, прежде чем опять к ним приобщиться, так хочется побыть здесь, безвольным и молодым.
