Migration of Sea Monkeys, otherwise known as brine shrimp, may affect global ocean circulation patterns, according to a new study by Caltech researchers.
The power output of wind farms can be increased by an order of magnitudeâ€”at least tenfoldâ€”simply by optimizing the placement of turbines on a given plot of land, say researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) who have been conducting a unique field study at an experimental two-acre wind farm in northern Los Angeles County.
The quest to derive energy from wind may soon be getting some help from California Institute of Technology (Caltech) fluid-dynamics expert John Dabiriâ€”and a school of fish.
Scientists at the California Institute of Technology have developed a blueprint for a wind farm that borrows techniques from schools of fish.
Jellyfish and other small swimming marine creatures can have a huge impact on ocean mixing, researchers in California report. Increasingly, scientists have been thinking about the possible role ocean animals may play in larger-scale ocean mixing, the process by which layers of water interact to distribute heat, nutrients and gases throughout the oceans, California Institute of Technology researchers said Thursday in a release. The perspective we usually take is how the ocean -- by its...
