The Equation of Undular bore: Formation and Effects

25 Sep 17

“Undular bore” that is also known as Atmospheric Gravity Waves, is an event that occurs when a fluid or a gas is disturbed suddenly. It gives rise to a series of oscillations that propagate and spread. This kind of occurrence happens in various things like water waves and Plasma that are made-up of ionized gases with positively and negatively charged free particles. The same kind of situation occurs in our atmosphere.

We can see the Undular Waves through the amazing cloud formations. Usually low-level atmospheric stability is involved in the formation of Undular bores.  A new kind of equation has been formulated to understand what happens when an Undular bore occurs and spreads within two axes. When two air masses of different temperatures collide the Undular bores are formed. When a low level boundary such as a cold front or outflow boundary approaches a layer of cold, balanced and steady air, it causes disturbance in the atmosphere and produces a wave-like force, known as a gravity wave.

At first time in the 1960s, mathematician Gerald B. Whitham attempted to describe Undular bores. Since then research is continued to know its cause and effects. Researchers used the equations to study Undular bores whose wave height varies along only one of the two directions and still trying to apply the equations in distinguishing undular bores whose wave height changes along both axes.

Kayaking: The Technique to Use a Kayak in the Moving Water

24 Sep 17

Kayak is a small and fine watercraft which is moved by means of a double-bladed paddle. The use of a Kayak in the moving water is called Kayaking. Many people confuse Kayaking with canoeing. However, canoeing is completely different from Kayaking.

While using a Kayak the peddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. Moreover, most Kayaks have closed decks, although sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well.

Kayaking is forever rewarding.  Anyone who wants to learn kayaking can easily learn the tricks because the basic skills can be learned in a day or so. However, one can have fun perfecting those basic skills and learning new ones for years. Kayaking as a hobby provides the basis for a health and fitness lifestyle. Additionally, it is a relaxing activity.

The best part of Kayaking is it can be pursued solo.  It is something one can spend a few hours enjoying.  Or one can challenge themselves to an expedition of days or even weeks. Kayaking has its health benefits too. As per the health experts, to move the kayak at about 5 mph is going to require about 0.1 hp of effort. This effort is going to use up about 400 calories per hour.  And so, four hours of paddling can burn up about 1600 calories.
