Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Bio Logic Aqua Founder Sharon Kleyne Predicts Lessening of Atmosphere’s Ability to Cleanse Itself. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 12, 2013 Satellite observations over the last 40 years suggest a trend towards increasing atmospheric temperatures in the middle latitudes. Since higher temperatures cause surface water to evaporate at a faster rate, the initial result is increased humidity. Increased humidity increases the air’s ability to hold...

Changing Surface Textures In 'Counterintuitive Manner' May Lead To Cooling Efficiency Gains
2013-11-12 14:52:59

[ Watch The Video: Water Droplets On Silicon Surfaces ] American Institute of Physics Uncovering the physical secrets underlying surface phenomena may increase cooling efficiency for a wide range of applications, according to MIT and Boston University researchers Researchers across the globe are racing to find ways to improve the cooling of hot surfaces -- for technologies ranging from small handheld electronics all the way to industrial-sized applications such as nuclear power...

Atmospheric River Storms Could Help Predict Winter Snowfall
2013-11-08 15:18:12

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study says “atmospheric river” storms from the Pacific Ocean could eventually help scientists predict major winter snowfalls. Atmospheric rivers are short-lived wind tunnels that carry water vapor from tropical oceans to mid-latitude land areas. They are known to bring large quantities of rain and snow on California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Researchers studied how two of the most common atmospheric circulation patterns...

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne raises questions about long-term climate change and human health. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 07, 2013 Satellite observations over the last 40 years suggest a gradual change from snow to rain, especially at the beginning and end of the cold season globally, and at higher elevations over the Earth’s surface. That was one of the predictions in a recent White Paper by Climatologist DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for...

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder, Sharon Kleyne, Raises Questions about Long-Term Climate Change and Human Health Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) October 31, 2013 Satellite and in-situ observation suggests changes in the long-term characteristics of precipitation at the Earth’s surface to less frequent but more intense rain and snow events. This is especially evident over land masses with the greatest human populations. That was one of the conclusions in a...

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, Sharon Kleyne, Raises Questions about Atmospheric Water Vapor Content and Human Health. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) October 30, 2013 For the past 40 years, satellite observations suggest that the amount of water vapor in the upper atmosphere is decreasing causing a drying trend. During the same period, observation of Earth’s land masses showed no changes and no trend in water vapor content. That was one point highlighted...

Dry Eye and Dehydration Are Ongoing Processes That Continue Throughout Life Reports Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder, Sharon Kleyne Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) October 24, 2013 From the moment of birth, reports noted water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne, our bodies, including skin and eyes, begin to lose water and dry out or dehydrate. It is basic physics that unless the surrounding humidity is 100%, liquid water will evaporate into gas. For an organism, including humans, to survive, this...

Weather Model Discussion:  How To Use Surface Dew-points For Weather Forecasting Purposes
2013-01-29 08:53:47

Surface Dew-points can play a huge role in weather forecasting. The first such role is that it helps determine the amount of moisture in the atmosphere for a given point. If we look at the current dew-point map above from January 28, 2013 we can note several things of interest. First, if we look at where the black circle is around the number 70, we can make note that this air right off the coast of Texas is at a dew point of 70F. The temperature outside must be above 70F, because the...

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
2012-06-26 06:00:45

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...

Haze is a type of atmospheric phenomenon where dust, smoke and dry particles in the air obscure the sky's clarity. Haze is created through various activities including farming, traffic pollution,and even wildfires. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) categorizes the obscuration of the Earth's atmosphere by a list of different types of atmospheric phenomena. One of these is haze. The other classifications are: fog, ice fog, steam fog, mist, smoke, volcanic ash, dust, sand, and snow....
