The Advance Snow Lab Can Predict More Accurate Avalanches

If you’re being offered to do some researches, by studying the nature of avalanches, would you mind to risk your life on it? Well, you might say, “Why should I do it?” Do you know, Ed Adams, a 58 years old civil engineering professor has traded in his dynamite for a more challenging approach! He has used a $2 million new snow lab, where it’s aimed at gaining a better understanding of how avalanches occur. The National Science Foundation and the Murdock Charitable Trust funded the snow lab, where it has been named as “Subzero Research Facility”. According to Adams, this lab will help the experts getting to know the avalanches and more importantly, the best and more accurate ways to predict them. Avalanches are difficult to understand and hard to predict comparing to earthquakes, as they can be suddenly happened without even an early warning on it. According to the New York Times, there are totally 31 winter ski resorts should be pay attention with, 16 in the United States and 15 in Canada. The new snow lab will allow Adams and his colleagues to set the artificial sun at varying conditions to form different structures of snow crystals.…

Learning From The Electronic Experts!

Do you have a lot of passion in the electronic field or you may even want to major the electronic and make it as your career? If you did, then you must keep read on the rest of the paragraphs! Did you know there is a site named ‘Electonics.wisc-online‘ that is in cooperation with the Wisconsin Online Resource Center and it’s based upon works supported by the National Science Foundation? Well, it’s a very interesting and interactive electronic and electrical learning site, which it is mainly focusing on concepts that cover a broad range electromechanical program! If you spend a few couple of hours on it, you’ll probably find out that the majority of these objects have been created for electronics. However, beside the electronic projects, there are at least 300 more objects that being built on other topic, such as the hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanical design etc. For you information, these objects were mostly created by the experienced instructors from Fox Valley Technical College and other prestige colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System. The best part about this site is the project was perfectly demonstrated in an evaluation and being conducted at FVTC during the 2004-2005 academic year. The…
