Water and Health Researcher Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research, on Preventing Summer Dry Eye Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) June 06, 2013 Summer is a high risk season for eyes, warns water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne. Summer sun, according to Kleyne, brings warmer temperatures and more intense solar radiation. This can result in increased tear film evaporation, eye dehydration and dry eye discomfort. The best eye protection from summer sun, says Mrs. Kleyne, is water. The...

Innovative sensors bring "smarts" to homes and help conserve water and energy through monitoring of temperature, humidity, light levels, soil moisture, frost and water temperature directly from an iPhone or iPad. Markham, Ontario (PRWEB) May 14, 2013 Wimoto Motes are tiny (about the size of a stack of five quarters) weatherproof sensors that can be stuck unobtrusively just about anywhere. They operate for up to a year on a single battery and wirelessly send information back to an app for...

The coming heat of the summer months means an increase in the risk of wine evaporating from storage barrels. Winery Humidification is a key component of every winery. Reno, NV (PRWEB) April 29, 2013 Smart Fog Inc announced this week, the 2013 model of Smart Fog´s fully-automated and energy efficient ES100 direct-space humidifier reduces the angel´s share caused by low relative humidity. It is the perfect solution for all winery humidification applications. As the heat of the...

Why Koozies Keep Your Beer Cold
2013-04-26 12:01:46

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Countless theories on the best way to quickly cool down a beer (or soda for the teetotalers) have been formed in the past, some of which were even put to the test by the MythBusters. But just as important as cooling beer is the challenge of keeping it cold, an aspect which is suspiciously absent from these frat-born theories. According to a new study published in Physics Today, a koozie is the best defense against condensation...

Researchers Find Earth Center Is 1800 Degrees Hotter Than Thought
2013-04-26 09:04:03

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The temperature near the Earth's core is approximately 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit [1] a team of scientists has determined. This is 1,800 degrees hotter than in a previous experiment conducted 20 years prior. The new measurements confirm geophysical models that the temperature difference between the solid core and the mantle above must be at least 1,500 degrees F to explain why the Earth has a magnetic field. The team was even able to...

Weather Model Discussion:  How To Use Surface Dew-points For Weather Forecasting Purposes
2013-01-29 08:53:47

Surface Dew-points can play a huge role in weather forecasting. The first such role is that it helps determine the amount of moisture in the atmosphere for a given point. If we look at the current dew-point map above from January 28, 2013 we can note several things of interest. First, if we look at where the black circle is around the number 70, we can make note that this air right off the coast of Texas is at a dew point of 70F. The temperature outside must be above 70F, because the...

Weather Pack For July 30, 2012
2012-08-01 12:22:59

Weather Pack is our way to envision what is happening with the weather and create a weather forecast for a certain area of the United States. Today’s focus is on Southwest Mississippi along the Mississippi River. On the left side we have a Skew-T which is used to help us determine what is happening in the upper levels at our forecast location. On the right side is our morning satellite image; both of these features are important to creating an accurate forecast. The Skew-T will show...

Surface Weather Map Features for July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 10:00:03

The morning weather map for July 5, shows us the current surface pressure readings. Surface Pressure is very important from a meteorological stand point. We use this to help us identify where our surface pressure centers are just like you see above. Our Low pressure area is over Northeast Colorado and also the High pressure over the Ontario area. Surface pressure is taken hourly from the stations and they are also mostly done on a 24hr basis, however some places will only submit their...

Surface Map Features

The map above shows our dew-point temperatures which is an important temp when it comes to weather. The dew-points help us determine how much moisture is in the atmosphere. If we look at the circle placed over Southern Mississippi we can see temps in the Mid 70’s. That is considered to be very saturated and humid type of weather. When you walk outside it feels very uncomfortable. While if we look back in Nevada we see 15, this is more respectful of being very dry air. This type of air also...

The Heat Wave Of The Central United States
2012-06-26 06:00:45

So why is there so much heat and humidity rising up into the Northern Plains creating a surge of hot weather? The answer is in the weather map above. If we look over Lake Michigan we see an area of High pressure which has a clockwise flow over the region. So places on the East are having cooler weather as they are getting the air from Canada pushing down towards them. North Dakota into the Gulf Coast are on the back side of the high so there air is coming from the Gulf of Mexico. If...
