Water waves exhibit negative gravity near a periodic array of buoys
What caused a giant arrow-shaped cloud on Saturn's moon Titan?
(PhysOrg.com) -- Why does Titan, Saturn's largest moon, have what looks like an enormous white arrow about the size of Texas on its surface?
'Virtual earthquakes' used to forecast Los Angeles quake risk
Stanford scientists are using weak vibrations generated by the Earth's oceans to produce "virtual earthquakes" that can be used to predict the ground movement and shaking hazard to buildings from real quakes.
Chips that can steer light
If you want to create a moving light source, you have a few possibilities. One is to mount a light emitter in some kind of mechanical housing—the approach used in, say, theatrical spotlights, which stagehands ...
Magma in mantle has deep impact: Study suggests rocks melt at a greater depth than once thought
Magma forms far deeper than geologists previously thought, according to new research at Rice University.
Scotland to deploy largest hydro-electric wave energy farm to date (w/ video)
Researchers turn to the ocean to help unravel the mysteries of cloud formation
In a study published today in ACS Central Science, a research team led by University of Wisconsin-Madison chemistry professor Timothy Bertram peels back the mysteries of the structures of tiny aerosol partic ...
A new direction for game controllers: Prototypes tug at thumb tips to enhance video gaming
University of Utah engineers designed a new kind of video game controller that not only vibrates like existing devices, but pulls and stretches the thumb tips in different directions to simulate the tug of ...
Research team projects wind and wave changes as planet heats up
Research team discovers third type of volcanic eruption
Researchers measure giant "internal waves" that help regulate climate
Once a day, a wave as tall as the Empire State Building and as much as a hundred miles wide forms in the waters between Taiwan and the Philippines and rolls across the South China Sea – but on the surface, ...
The ocean's hidden waves show their power
Their effect on the surface of the ocean is negligible, producing a rise of just inches that is virtually imperceptible on a turbulent sea. But internal waves, which are hidden entirely within the ocean, ...
Study examines role of acoustic-gravity waves as ocean transport, early warning of tsunamis
Acoustic-gravity waves—a special type of sound wave that can cut through the deep ocean at the speed of sound—can be generated by underwater earthquakes, explosions, and landslides, as well as by surface ...
