Did you know that you can hear the difference between hot and cold water when they’re poured? Go ahead and give the video above a listen to try it out. Keep reading
Have you ever noticed how motes of dust seem to dance around even in still air? The reason they do is because all the atoms and molecules in the air Keep reading
In the ocean, many forces compete in driving convection, including the temperature and salinity of the water. In the laboratory, it’s possible to mimic these characteristics of oceanic circulation using Keep reading
This video shows sea surface temperature results and their seasonal variation from a numerical simulation modeling circulation in the atmosphere and oceans. Modeling such enormous problems requires the development of reasonable Keep reading
This video turbulent convection in a vertical channel. Buoyancy and the density variations caused by small differences in temperature are what drive the behavior.
