Studying Water Flow for More Efficient Aquaponic Systems

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

In aquaponics, the hydroponic crops use the nutrients from fish waste as fertilizer while the fish benefit from the plants’ nutrient uptake capability to improve water quality. The treated water is then recirculated to the plant grow beds and fish culture tanks via a pipe system. Researchers at the University of New Hampshire, who are studying ways to improve water flow for more efficient aquaponic systems, will present their work at the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics 71st Annual Meeting, Nov. 18-20.

New model predicts which animal viruses may spread among humans

University of Georgia

Researchers have developed a model that predicts which of the viruses that can jump from animals to people can also be transmitted from person to person—and are therefore possible sources of human diseases.

Early education intervention has long-lasting, positive effects on social behavior, scientists say

Virginia Tech

Adults who received early life, intensive childhood educational intervention display high levels of fairness in social interactions more than 40 years later, even if being fair comes at a high personal cost, according to Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists.

Reducing the Impact Forces of Water Entry

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

As professional divers complete what’s known as a rip dive, their hands remove water in front of the body, creating a cavity that reduces the initial impact force. The rest of the body is aligned to shoot through the same cavity created by the hands. Using the hands to create cavities in the water's surface is similar to the concept behind the fluid-structure studies that researchers at Utah State University are conducting using spheres. They’ll present their work at the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics 71st Annual Meeting, Nov. 18-20.

Aquatic Animals that Jump Out of Water Inspire Leaping Robots

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Ever watch aquatic animals jump out of the water and wonder how they manage to do it in such a streamlined and graceful way? Researchers who specialize in water entry and exit in nature had the same question. During the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics 71st Annual Meeting, Nov. 18-20, they will present their work designing a robotic system inspired by jumping copepods and frogs to illuminate some of the fluid dynamics at play when aquatic animals jump.

How to Convert Climate-Changing Carbon Dioxide into Plastics and Other Products

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Rutgers scientists have developed catalysts that can convert carbon dioxide – the main cause of global warming – into plastics, fabrics, resins and other products. The electrocatalysts are the first materials, aside from enzymes, that can turn carbon dioxide and water into carbon building blocks containing one, two, three or four carbon atoms with more than 99 percent efficiency.
