In this water resources engineering/geomorphology blog post, we study the Bruun rule, a simple relationship between shoreline regression and sea-level rise that has been a mainstay in coastal science for over half a century.
In this blog post, we study three simple theories used by earth scientists to describe glacier profiles: The parabolic model, the Vialov model, and the Bueler model. The advantages and shortcomings of each model are discussed.
In this geology/geophysics/sediment transport quiz, we discuss the fascinating theory of sand grain saltation in dunes, from the pioneering work of Ralph Bagnold in the 1940s to some of the most recent developments.
In this plant biology/agriculture blog post, we present a semiquantitative discussion of stomatal conductance in vascular plants. Factors involved in opening of stomata are discussed, and a solved example is provided.
