Turbulent jets and plumes - a Lagrangian approach

Wisdom of turbulent blending by means of plumes and jets, comparable to these encountered in smokestack emissions, volcanic eruptions, and sewage discharges, is critical for controlling environmental effect and for assessing possibility.

Dyes and Pigments

During this e-book the authors return to fundamentals to explain the structural transformations among dyes and pigments, their mechanisms of motion, homes and functions. They set the scene by way of explaining the explanations in the back of those ameliorations and convey how dyes are predominately natural compounds that dissolve or react with substrates, while pigments are (predominantly) finely flooring inorganic elements which are insoluble and for this reason have a unique mode of coloring.

Example text

Neither result was necessarily right or wrong. They both may have been right for the situations they studied. Instead of disputing, they should have collaborated to obtain a more general result. While in graduate school, I spent one summer trapping brown lemmings (Lemmus trimucronatus) for a long-term study by Dr. Frank Pitelka and others who were trying to explain the short-term cycles of brown lemming abundance. It seemed to me at that time that almost any scientist who was seeking to understand the causes of the cycles of abundance demonstrated by lemmings found answers that corresponded with their approaches.

I believe analyses would improve if we became even more holistic. In academia, most advanced degrees require research on individual problems so that the student becomes an expert on a very narrow topic. This is a useful way to increase our understanding of what is being studied, but it does not help much in the understanding required by ecopsychologists. Ecopsychologists tie together relevant information from a variety of disciplines and work together in teams to increase their understanding of holistic problems.

It slowly evolved, from a lifeless, featureless blob through a number of steps into the world we know today. During this period, land and oceans formed, and an atmosphere slowly developed. It was originally toxic but eventually changed through a number of processes (Hazen, 2012). After life formed and evolved, it contributed to the accumulating changes. Details of the physical changes are studied in geology. Paleontologists study the living things of the past. They, too, slowly changed. 5 billion years for them to occur.
