Zonules of Zinn
2012-07-01 19:12:34

The Zonules of Zinn, also known as Zinn’s membrane and ciliary zonule, is a ring of fibrous strands connecting the ciliary body with the crystalline lens of the eye. The zonule of Zinn is split into two layers: a thin layer, which lines with the hyaloid fossa, and a thick layer, which is a collection of zonular fibers. Together, these fibers are known as the suspensory ligament of the lens. When color granules are displaced from the Zonules of Zinn, by friction against the lens, the...

Tropical Cyclones have a life cycle they go through. The first stage is referred to as a wave when the satellite imagery picks up on an area of thunderstorm developing in the ocean in the tropical region. If the thunderstorms hold together and get better organized it will then get upgraded to a tropical depression. During this stage of its life it will have a better organization to its thunderstorms and also the winds will be increasing. The third stage that occurs is the formation of a...

Tropical systems are weather features that form in the tropics and can become very intense areas of low pressure that impact many coastal regions throughout the world. They usually form between 5 and 15 latitude. This is because a tropical system is a vertical extension in the atmosphere of a large thunderstorm development. In order for these thunderstorms to move they need something in the upper levels to help them move. That is where the spinning of the earth comes into play for them which...
