So now we know the mass ratios of the dog and tail, it's time to look at the noise.  We are also working with heat energy, specific heat, and atmospheric infrared reflectance.  Is the dog active? Hear a fantastic Nasa simulation. At same time, we see the clouds following the same lines. In terms of heat effect, the ratio of ocean to cloud is the same as that of cloud to carbon -

Sometimes I spend so much time out looking at geological features in the Bay area that I forget to blog about them. But this weekend I had the chance to go for a wonderful tour of the South Bay and Peninsula via Cessna, and I'm convinced that it's an awesome way to check out geology. (Of course, anyone who's seen Michael Collier's photographic work knows that already, but in case you needed convincing, take my word for it. Also, not having to brave security at the airport is

The largest known undersea landslide occurred over 8,000 years ago off the coast of Norway. The volume of material that moved is mind-blowing, over 4.6 X 1012 cubic yards or 850 cubic miles! Known as the Storegga landslide, the resulting tsunami buried neolithic settlements in Norway with sediment and caused wave runnup in Great Britain that was 80 feet higher than the normal high tide. The devastating loss of human life can only be imagined. Regarding that last question, anthropologists [...]
