Shape and size of large-scale vortices: A generic fluid pattern in geophysical fluid dynamics

first_imgPlanetary rotation organizes fluid motions into coherent, long-lived swirls, known as large-scale vortices (LSVs), which play an important role in the dynamics and long-term evolution of geophysical and astrophysical fluids. Here, using direct numerical simulations, we show that LSVs in rapidly rotating mixed convective and stably stratified fluids, which approximates the two-layer, turbulent-stratified dynamics of many geophysical and astrophysical fluids, have a generic shape and that their size can be predicted. We show that LSVs emerge in the convection zone from upscale energy transfers and can penetrate into the stratified layer. At the convective-stratified interface, the LSV cores have a positive buoyancy anomaly. Due to the thermal wind constraint, this buoyancy anomaly leads to winds in the stratified layer that decay over a characteristic vertical length scale. Thus LSVs take the shape of a depth-invariant cylinder with a finite-size radius in the turbulent layer and of a penetrating half dome in the stratified layer. Importantly, we demonstrate that when LSVs penetrate all the way through the stratified layer and reach a boundary that is no-slip, they saturate by boundary friction. We provide a prediction for the penetration depth and maximum radius of LSVs as a function of the LSV vorticity, the stratified layer depth, and the stratification. Our results, which apply for cyclonic LSVs, suggest that LSVs in slowly rotating stars and Earth’s liquid core are confined to the convective layer, while in Earth’s atmosphere and oceans they can penetrate far into the stratified layer.last_img read more

Donegal man conquers popular climbing route Mont Blanc

first_imgMartin McGroarty, from Rinboy, Fanad, maybe the first Fanad man to have climbed Mont Blanc in the French Alps.Martin started the climb on Saturday morning, moving between camps to acclimatize to the altitude before arriving at the last tramstop and taking on the 4,809-metre summit. In Mont Blanc, researchers have warned that climbs that were once relatively straightforward have become more challenging because of the risk of falling debris.However, battling on, McGroarty made it to the top and planted the Donegal flag on Tuesday morning.He is currently on the way back down the mountain.Donegal man conquers popular climbing route Mont Blanc was last modified: July 30th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

How to Capitalize and Profit from Systemic Failure

first_imgdana oshiro A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Tags:#start#StartUp 101#startups Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Fear of failure rarely keeps serial entrepreneurs down. In fact, said Marc Pincus, CEO of Zynga at today’s FailCon event, “As entrepreneurs and programmers we’re used to failing aren’t we? If you look at it as A/B testing until you get the perfect product, then it’s not an issue. It’s important to learn from it…Otherwise, honestly, why change a [email protected]#king thing if you’re not going to measure the impact?” While Pincus is doing well with Zynga, he first saw failure with Tribe. Despite the fact that Tribe is still considered one of the first social networking sites, the founder has since learned that if you’re going to fail, “fail fast” and do it with clear success metrics in place.Another startup that has managed to leverage failure for success is customer service platform Get Satisfaction. On a personal front, co-founder Thor Muller failed in raising too much money at a time when his then company Trapezo lacked direction. When the bubble burst, Muller was free to start Get Satisfaction with co-founder Lane Becker. Although you wouldn’t normally relate their company with failure, Get Satisfaction offers startups an opportunity to fail publicly via a Q&A-style platform. Says Muller, “Companies used to get away with failing quietly. Now it’s amplified, it’s even SEOed. Good companies know that one of the best ways to convert people into loyal customers is to make amends for a failure.” In March, ReadWriteWeb found that after customers complained about a company on Get Satisfaction, they often immediately offered solutions to fix it. We named it the leading idea aggregator for businesses. Says Becker, “There’s value to perpetuating failure. As entrepreneurs, we need to believe that our successes will be at the end of this trajectory of failures, and we’re not the only ones capitalizing on it”Becker went on to argue that bloggers and investors were just as tied to the cycle of failure as Get Satisfaction. “Investors need us to fail, otherwise there’d be no new companies to fund. Bloggers need us to fail. They need it to write at least two blog posts – one when we start and one when we finish.” While Get Satisfaction’s presentation put failure into a new context, the message was an upbeat one. The systemic failure that happens due to poor market conditions, poor social sentiment or new technologies displacing old ones is a necessity. Without a willingness to take risks and fail, experimentation and new innovations would cease to exist. For most of us, that’s the reason we’re in the technology industry to begin with.

High Visibility: The Weather Underground Goes Full-Screen

first_imgRelated Posts Thanks to the Weather Underground, the weather just started to look a lot nicer. The popular weather-tracking site just launched, which does exactly what the name implies. The new site gives you a full screen Google Maps display and overlays it with current weather reports from the over 16,000 personal weather stations that report data to the service. The map can also display a precipitation layer or cloud layer and you can, of course, see local forecasts and sever weather alerts. frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#news#web Most importantly, though, the maps just look gorgeous. By default, the map will show temperature readings around your location from the Weather Underground’s vast network of personal weather stations. That network could be a liability if the data wasn’t good, but as RWW’s resident weather expert (and webmaster) Jared Smith just told me, the company has a very good reputation among weather geeks for weeding out bad data.As the company points out, the web service should also work very well with touch-enabled devices, including the iPad.Overall, this isn’t a groundbreaking new application, but it sure is a very nice way to browse through weather data on a large interactive map.

LeBron James Issues Defiant Response to Fox News Host

LeBron James has been openly political in recent years. (Photo by Slaven Vlasic/Getty Images for Sports Illustrated)LeBron James won’t simply “shut up and dribble” like a Fox News anchor told him to.After Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long came to his defense Friday, Feb. 16, James himself hit back at Laura Ingraham over his criticism of President Donald Trump.James said on “Rolling with the Champion” Thursday, Feb. 15 that Trump “really don’t give a f— about the people,” which led Ingraham to proclaim that he should “keep the political commentary to yourself or as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” she also said on “The Ingraham Angle.”Wade had remained silent until he posted a photo with lights reading “I am more than an athlete.”And if there was any doubt that he was referring to Ingraham, his caption ended speculation.“#WeWillNotShutUpAndDribble,” it said. King James also may have indirectly responded to Ingraham on Snapchat, posting a carefree selfie poolside.“Smiling through it all!” his caption read. “Can’t believe this is my life.”LeBron’s like, ‘Laura who?’— Hemal Jhaveri (@hemjhaveri) February 16, 2018 read more
