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...

Nest Thermostat Updated To Adjust Itself When In Sunlight
2013-04-30 12:59:55

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The Nest Learning Thermostat, created by the “Father of the iPod,” heats and cools homes by studying a family´s behaviors and movements. If a person bumps the thermostat down before work in the morning and cranks it back up when they get home, the Nest will soon mimic this behavior and adjust itself automatically. The Nest also works with a companion iPhone and web app which allows users to adjust their...

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...

The manufacturing of short length medical Capillary tubing is a fully automated process in a clean room environment. The adhesion of the tubes due to low humidity conditions cause significant delays and can interrupt the production process. Reno, NV (PRWEB) March 31, 2013 This week a Silicon Valley clean room manufacturer, specializing the manufacturing of miniature Capillary tubing resolved a significant production issue utilizing Smart Fog intelligent humidification solutions. Until this...

Weather And Climate Models Improved Using SEALDH
2013-03-04 12:15:33

Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt A humidity sensor developed by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the SEALDH laser hygrometer, has proven its worth when used aboard an aircraft; it fulfills all pre-conditions to be used as a transfer standard for conventional humidity-measuring instruments. This would allow the quality of air humidity measurements in the Earth's atmosphere - and, thus, also climate model computations - to be improved. Humidity measurements in the...

Infectious capacity of influenza virus particles reduced at relative humidity of 40 percent or higher Higher humidity levels indoors can significantly reduce the infectivity of influenza virus particles released by coughing, according to research published February 27 in the open access journal PLOS ONE by John Noti and colleagues from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The researchers tested the effect of relative...

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...
