Scientists Demonstrate Influence Of Eddies On The Oxygen Sustenance
2013-11-18 13:25:24

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel More than four months from November 2012 to March 2013 Kiel ocean scientists investigated on the German research vessel METEOR the oxygen-poor upwelling regions in the tropical Pacific off Peru. First results of the project carried out in the context of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 754 “Climate-biogeochemistry interactions in the tropical ocean” show, how eddies in the ocean influence the oxygen and nutrient distribution in the...

Scientists To Present Theory On Longevity Of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot
2013-11-14 17:55:46

[ Watch the Video: The Mystery Behind Jupiter's Long-lived Storm ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A defining mark of Jupiter, the Great Red Spot, should have disappeared centuries ago, according to prevailing theories. A new model being presented at the 66th Annual Division of Fluid Dynamics Meeting in Pittsburgh next week provides a possible explanation for why the turbulent red vortex has lasted so long. "Based on current theories, the Great Red Spot...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online After Typhoon Haiyan tore through the Philippines, a joint team from NASA and the Italian Space Agency quickly generated a map using satellite imagery that could be used to survey the devastation and assist recovery operations. The 27-by-33-mile map focuses on a region near Tacloban City, where one of the most powerful recorded storms on Earth made landfall on Nov. 8, 2013. Using radar data from the Italian Space Agency's...

Future Submarines May Draw Inspiration From Stingray Mobility
2013-11-14 07:02:17

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Stingrays have a unique swimming movement that allows them to move through the water with ease. A new study from the University of Buffalo (UB) and Harvard University is examining those movements to design more agile and fuel-efficient unmanned underwater vehicles. Such vehicles would allow scientists to study the mostly unexplored ocean depths more efficiently, as well as serving during clean up activities or rescue efforts....

Warm Sea Surface Helped Strengthen Tropical Storm 30W
2013-11-06 11:15:11

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the South China Sea and revealed that warm sea surface temperatures and low wind shear enabled Tropical Depression 30W to strengthen into a tropical storm. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm 30W on Nov. 5 at 0611 UTC/1:11 a.m. EDT as it was making its way west through the South China Sea. The infrared AIRS data provides valuable cloud top temperature data that indicates how high the thunderstorms are the make up the tropical cyclone....

A barometer is an instrument that measures atmospheric pressure. The barometer measures pressure exerted by the atmosphere using water, air, or mercury. Through measuring the pressure one can forecast short term weather changes. Evangelista Torricelli is credited with the invention of the barometer in 1643. However, Gasparo Berti unintentionally built a water barometer around the same time. Rene Descartes was also noted as describing an experiment to determine air pressure but there is no...

A Vortex (plural: vortices) is a spinning, often turbulent, mass of flowing fluid. Any spiral movement with a closed streamline is considered vortex flow. The speed and rate of rotation of a vortex is always greatest at the center, with progressively decreasing speed away from the center. The fluid pressure is lowest in the center of the vortex, and rises further from the center (Bernoulli's Principle). The core of a vortex is sometimes visible due to a plume of water vapor caused by...

Turbulence (or turbulent flow) is characterized by chaotic, random property changes. Turbulence occurs with low momentum diffusion (spreading of atmospheric properties), high momentum convection (vertical transference of atmospheric properties), and rapid variation of pressure and velocity in both space and time. A flow that is not turbulent is known as laminar flow. A vortex moving at low speeds will most likely cause laminar flow, and as speeds increase a transition is made to turbulent...

Comet -- A comet is a small body from the outer reaches of the solar system similar to an asteroid but composed of ice. Often described as "dirty snowballs," they are composed largely of carbon dioxide ice, methane ice, and water ice with a mixture of dust and small stony aggregates mixed in. Comets are thought to be small pieces of debris left over from the formation of the solar system, representing a sample of the original composition of the nebula that condensed to form the Sun and all...
