Tips from Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne on how education can help prevent winter dry eye. (PRWEB) January 09, 2014 Dry eye complaints are the number one reason for eye doctor visits in the United States and winter is the season with the most dry eye complaints. According to water and eye researcher Sharon Kleyne, education is the first step in preventing winter dry eye. Air temperature and humidity or atmospheric water vapor content, says Kleyne, are the most important...

Tips from Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne For How Relief of Eye Dehydration Can Save Lives. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) January 08, 2014 Winter is dry eye season, which mean that one symptom of dry eye, temporarily blurred vision, is far more likely to occur. Water and eye care researcher Sharon Kleyne warns that episodes of temporarily blurred vision can be extremely dangerous but also notes that depending on the exact cause, the condition is easily relieved. Sharon Kleyne...

NCAR scientists and partners next week will launch a field project in the tropical Pacific, a remote region that holds a key to understanding worldwide climate. The warm waters fuel huge clusters of thunderstorms that act as a global chimney, lofting gases and particles into the stratosphere and affecting the planet. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) January 07, 2014 Even though few people live in the western tropical Pacific Ocean, these remote waters affect billions of people by shaping climate and...

Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder, Sharon Kleyne, Offers Tips for Preventing Dry Eyes. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) December 24, 2013 From the moment of birth, for land organisms, life on Earth is a constant struggle to avoid drying out. According to water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne, the better educated we are about the drying out or dehydration process, the better able we are to slow it down. One organ that is particularly vulnerable to dehydration is the eyes. Despite the critical...

Noctilucent Clouds In Antarctica Being Studied Closely By NASA's AIM Mission
2013-12-24 11:17:05

[ Watch the Video: ScienceCasts: Electric-Blue Clouds Appear Over Antarctica ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A group of electric-blue clouds are hovering over Antarctica right now, and NASA’s AIM spacecraft is helping scientists better understand them. Noctilucent clouds (NLCs) are the Earth’s highest clouds, forming at the edge of space, 51 miles above the Earth’s surface. From a plane, the clouds appear as slivers of light streaking across the sky,...

[ Watch The Video: Surface Renewal: An Advanced Micrometeorological Method ] The Journal of Visualized Experiments Today, December 12, JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, has published an environmental research technique that could turn the age-old task of watering crops into an exact science. A collaboration of scientists from the US Department of Agriculture and the University of California Davis, among others, has introduced a precision instrument that can determine...

Mystery Of Troposphere Warming Solved
2013-12-10 14:44:32

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A long-standing mystery surrounding unusual warming of planetary atmospheres is not just exclusive to our solar system, but is most likely universal, according to a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience. In 1902 a scientist named Léon Teisserenc de Bort found a point in Earth’s atmosphere where the air stops cooling and begins growing warmer. This finding was surprising considering scientists knew that as you climb in...

Water and Health Researcher Sharon Kleyne’s Tips on Avoiding Dehydration and Bacteria Exposure From Forced-Air Heating Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 26, 2013 Winter is the worst time of year for dry skin, according to water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne. A primary cause of winter skin dehydration is that people spend much more time indoors, in rooms with insulated walls and windows, warmed by forced-air heating systems. Outdoor air is also more dehydrating in winter because...

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...

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...
