Humidifiers are essential in maintaining a healthy, quality indoor air environment. A humidifier is a great tool for adding moisture to the air to help prevent problematic breathing indoors. Maintaining the moisture level inside a home or office space is essential to preventing dry, irritable skin and also helps treat other health related problems such as the common flu, asthma and congestion. The Aprilaire 500 features truly automatic control, plus a built-in bypass damper (which means fewer...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online On July 16, 1902 if you wanted to find a way to keep cool in the summer heat you most likely would have had limited options, but move ahead just one day and the possibility of enduring that sweltering warmth got a whole lot cooler, literally. One hundred and ten years ago today (July 17, 1902) Dr. Willis H. Carrier unveiled his air conditioning system that he developed to control the humidity in a New York printing plant. Little...

Derek Walter for redOrbit.com A team of Harvard researchers has developed a superior method for keeping metal surfaces free of ice and frost. It´s a difficult task, but one that could have substantial implications for metal surfaces used in wind turbines, aircraft, refrigeration systems, marine vessels and the construction industry. Airplane wings, railings, and other fabrication parts are just a sample of how often metal is used throughout the world in most of the largest...

Urban Heat Island
2013-04-02 15:35:21

An urban heat island (UHI) is a metropolitan area that is drastically warmer than its surrounding rural areas because of human activities. The phenomenon was first looked into and described by Luke Howard during the 1810s, although he wasn’t the one to name the phenomenon. The difference in temperature is normally bigger at night as opposed to during the day, and it most obvious when winds are weak. Seasonally, UHI is seen during the summer and the winter. The key cause of the urban heat...

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

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...

Water vapor (aqueous vapor) is the gaseous phase of water. It is one stage of the water cycle of our planet. Water vapor is formed from either evaporation or heating of liquid water, or from the sublimation of ice. In nature, water vapor is continuously produced by evaporation and removed by condensation. Along with carbon dioxide and methane gas, water vapor is one of the greenhouse gases. The release of water molecules from liquid water is considered evaporation. The transition of these...

White frost is a type of solid ice that forms directly from water vapor found in the air. White frost forms when the humidity is above 90% and the temperature is below 18 degrees Fahrenheit. White frost grows against the wind, since the facing winds have higher humidity than leeward air. The wind must be light or the delicate icy structures become broken. The structures have big, interlocking, needle-like crystals. This phenomenon occurs very rarely. White frost is considered an intermediate...

  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
