MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A bumblebee-inspired 19-foot wind turbine prototype created a buzz, both literally and figuratively, at The Perfect Pitch 2009 entrepreneur conference on Monday, October 26th. Created by the clean energy company Green Wavelength, the prototype represents an attempt to break the mold of everyday windmill solutions that are, at best, 30 percent efficient, and seek efficiency from biological sources such as the movement of bumblebees,...

Physicists are discovering ways to build rogue waves out of light Rogue waves"”giant waves that spring up suddenly and tower over the seas around them"”have inspired physicists to look for an analogue in light. These high-intensity pulses can cross large distances without losing information. Now a team of physicists have identified one set of conditions that produces optical rogue waves. Their findings are reported in Physical Review A and highlighted with in the October 19 issue...

 University of Utah mathematicians developed a new cloaking method, and it's unlikely to lead to invisibility cloaks like those used by Harry Potter or Romulan spaceships in "Star Trek." Instead, the new method someday might shield submarines from sonar, planes from radar, buildings from earthquakes, and oil rigs and coastal structures from tsunamis."We have shown that it is numerically possible to cloak objects of any shape that lie outside the cloaking devices, not just from...

U.S. scientists believe they have made great headway in understanding what have been termed, freak waves. These rogue waves are relatively large and spontaneous ocean surface waves that are a major threat to large ships and ocean liners. They have a height of more than twice the significant wave height (SWH). They are not necessarily the biggest waves at sea, but they are incredibly large compared to the state of the sea.  U.S. oceanographers developed a computer simulation that might...

Stories of ships mysteriously sent to watery graves by sudden, giant waves have long puzzled scientists and sailors. New research by San Francisco State professor Tim Janssen suggests that changes in water depth and currents, which are common in coastal areas, may significantly increase the likelihood of these extreme waves.Published in the Journal of Physical Oceanography, Janssen's wave model simulations show that focusing of waves by shoals and currents could increase the likelihood of a...

Research at the University of Liverpool has shown it is possible to develop an "Ëœinvisibility cloak' to protect buildings from earthquakes. The seismic waves produced by earthquakes include body waves which travel through the earth and surface waves which travel across it. The new technology controls the path of surface waves which are the most damaging and responsible for much of the destruction which follows earthquakes. The technology involves the use of concentric rings of...

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...

call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
