“Adrift”

Featured Video Play Icon

Sometimes the time scales of a flow can mask its similarities to other flows. Simon Christen’s “Adrift,” a video of timelapsed fog in the San Francisco Bay area, shows just how these low clouds undulate and flow over the land the way a stream of water flows over and around stones. From the flow of gases in a stellar nursery down to the channels of a lab-on-a-chip, the same physics governs fluids everywhere, and there are always similarities to be found and exploited in our efforts to understand and explain fluid dynamics.
