Small Forces Make a Big Difference in Beach Erosion, According to New Article in Physics of Fluids, which May Lead to Better Solutions for Sustainable Beaches WASHINGTON, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- People standing on a beach often feel the water tugging the sand away from under their feet. This is the undertow, the current that pulls water back into the ocean after a wave breaks on the beach. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20130627/DC39790LOGO Large storms...

Researchers Levitate Particles With Sound Waves
2014-01-03 18:09:52

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online University of Tokyo researchers have developed a new technique for levitating objects using sound, allowing the floating objects to be steered in three different directions. The team wrote in a paper that levitation technology works by offsetting the effect of gravity. Scientists have known that an ultrasound standing wave is able to suspend small particles at its sound pressure nodes. “Our manipulation system has two original...

Predicting Heat Waves

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research published on Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience could give meteorologists the ability to predict deadly summer heat waves more than two weeks ahead of time. In the study, scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) used a 12,000-year simulation of atmospheric patterns over the Northern Hemisphere to identify a distinctive "wavenumber-5" pattern that significantly increased the odds of a major...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of scientists from the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) and the University of California - San Diego (UC San Diego) have created a static pipeline wave in a laboratory. The wave has a crest that moves neither forward nor backward, which will allow improvements in boat and seaport designs. The wave will also allow analysis of how carbon dioxide exchange between the ocean and the atmosphere occurs. The study findings are...

Levitating On Sound Waves
2013-07-17 05:29:50

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule Zurich (ETH) have found a way to use sound waves to make objects levitate. The team wrote in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences they were able to make objects like particles and liquid droplets fly in mid-air by letting them ride on acoustic waves. Not only were they able to make the objects levitate, but they also showed they could control the movements of objects....

New Tool For Quantum Optics

Vienna University of Technology A light wave oscillates perpendicular to its propagation direction — that is what students learn in school. However, scientists of the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) now perform atom-physics experiments with light oscillating in the longitudinal direction. Storing light in a bottle is easier than one might think: Laser light can be coupled into an optical glass fiber in such a way that it does not travel along the fiber but rather...

Doppler Effect -- The Doppler effect is the apparent change in frequency or wavelength of a wave that is perceived by an observer moving relative to the source of the waves. For waves, such as sound waves, that propagate in a wave medium, the velocity of the observer and the source are reckoned relative to the medium in which the waves are transmitted. The total Doppler effect may therefore result from both motion of the source and motion of the observer. Each of these effects is analyzed...
