那’每天56,000桶…Not 5,000

那’s right, 新工作表明 BP’估计从破碎井流动的油是一个数量级的秩序。通过这些修订的估计,BP Gulf Spill是exxon Valdez泄漏的10倍。新的估计计算了30秒视频抓取的流量的流速,其中一种称为光学羽流量测速技术的方法(O.’是的,我将在本周末在鸡尾酒上将这一点放在对话中)。流量越快,视频中羽流的分辨率越低。有趣的是,这种技术是开发的,以测量在水热通风口处通风。从新闻稿中加入此报价

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. 当这些东西被测试时,我在2005年在巡航中巡航!它们看起来像煎锅覆盖物网格。它被放入水热通风羽流并记录一段时间。该软件基本上找到了一种粒子并跟随它,然后计算它基于网格的速度以及旅行所需的时间。将其缩放到颗粒的巨大,并且你得到一个平均流量。简单而优雅,又是保证水热通风科学的另一个原因!
