The 2-D areal surface flow modules of HydroGeoSphere follow the same conventions for spatial and temporal discretizations as those used by the subsurface modules.
What do you think? Does this technology have potential? The next model may be dangerously fantastical. The technique is, as it seems, scalable and used in a constructive manner, not just to destroy.
On a vaguely related note, does the Star Wars Death Star operate on a similar principle? Gotta get me one!
Evan C IT is a veryattractive unit, my question is if the price and physical size make it substantially more viable then conventional panels, in terms of output. PV cells can still only hit so much efficiency, no matter how much light is available, and there are so few on the unit compared to the amount of floor space of takes up.
And price must enough high David McElroy I have proposed a one-way mirror glass sphere to be used as stationary sun-tracking solar energy collector. As the solar rays enter the sphere, they will arrive at the thermocouple or high-efficiency photoelectric cell positioned in the center.
Any stray light will be reflected back by the mirror trapping all light inside and bouncing it back to the central collector. This will work as long as the light outside is greater than the light inside, which the one-way mirror guarantees. Consider this idea duly posted. I proposed something along these lines recently to a colleague of mine during a coffee time chat.
Glass bead with one way reflective coating on the inner surface to ensure light is fully utilised. Not sure on the physics or the method of manufacture!?
He accepted preliminary marketing suggestions from a friend of mine with an oral understanding of payment for her services, then used the ideas himself! I love the ideabut a long way from becoming commercial in the utility sense.
This glass sphere is it solid glass or is it vacuumed hollow sphere? Faith n Daniel Hovland Creating sustainability with natural sources for small villages around the Amazon.In both locations pictured here, the hydrosphere is the main agent responsible for eroding or breaking down the geosphere (rocks).
Differences in the amount of precipitation each area receives and the state of the water (liquid or solid) where it contacts rocks result in different kinds of erosion and landforms. This lesson, Interactions Between the Hydrosphere and Other Earth's systems, begins with a nature walk outside.
Students make observations about the air, ground, stream, sun, etc. Students make observations about the air, ground, stream, sun, etc.
Definition of hydrosphere - all the waters on the earth's surface, such as lakes and seas, and sometimes including water over the earth's surface, such as clo.
Hydrosphere - Water. The hydrosphere contains all the solid, liquid, and gaseous water of the planet.*** It ranges from 10 to 20 kilometers in thickness. The hydrosphere extends from Earth's surface downward several kilometers into the lithosphere and upward about 12 kilometers into the atmosphere.
