Diving Shrews Warm Up Before Taking The Plunge
2012-07-05 04:30:05

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online According to research presented July 1 at the Society for Experimental Biology meeting, American water shrews rapidly raise their body temperature just before diving deep into icy waters. This finding has surprised researchers because normally, lower body temperatures enable diving mammals to stay underwater for longer, so heating up doesn't make sense. This is because animals use up oxygen more quickly when they are warmer....

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com A Swedish expedition team has found an unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, leaving some to believe it´s the remnants of an extra-terrestrial ship. Scientists went off on a deep-water dive to debunk some theories about the underwater object, but were left with more questions than they had answers. The divers found that the object was raised about 10 to 13 feet above the seabed, and curved in at the sides. "First we thought this was...

A wetsuit, worn by divers, windsurfers, and others engaged in water sports, is a garment, made of foamed neoprene that provides thermal insulation, abrasion resistance, and buoyancy. The suit provides insulation through bubbles of gas enclosed within the material which reduces its ability to conduct heat. These bubbles also provide buoyancy in water. Contrary to popular belief the layer of warm water trapped between the suit and the skin provides very little thermal insulation. Wetsuits...

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...
