Mangrove Vegetation as a Protective Solution for Coastal Protections

Authors: Sarah Palmer, Mathew Withmarsh
Comments: 4 Pages.

Mangroves play a prominent role in obstructing water currents in riverbanks, shorelines, and coastal areas. Mangrove roots have the significant contribution to the resiliency of the vegetation structure. In this work, the flow characteristics past a cluster of circular cylinders (patch), which represents the mangrove roots, are investigated. We found that blockage parameter for a patch decreases with porosity for all Reynolds numbers. A von Kármán vortex sheet is predicted behind the patch with a periodicity which agrees well with experiment. In addition, the vorticity field for the least porous patch reveals a delay in the formation of von Kármán vortex street due to the small vortices in the near wake, whereas the vortices evolve in the far wake and produce swirling flow

Geysers on Enceladus and Europa Prompt Water Rich Earth’s Interior Idea

Authors: Edgars Alksnis
Comments: 2 Pages.

Waterless Earth's interior concept is connected with one of large piece of iron in Earth's centre. Since latter concept is disproved, water rich Earth sounds logical.

The Earth Moon Collisions: Presenting Three Collisions in Detail

Authors: R. Winnubst
Comments: 27 Pages.

To verify the likelihood of a new solar system formation hypothesis, research was conducted into a possible low speed, shallow angled collision between an ice-covered Earth and Moon, 4.1 billion years ago. Via a tailored set of indicators, not just one but three collisions were identified beyond a reasonable doubt. All are presented in great photographic and topographic detail in this paper. On the Moon, the three impact areas are: Aitkin basin, a double string of major maria and wider Oceanus Procellarum. On Earth, the respective corresponding impact areas are: The Arctic, the Canadian Shield and equatorial Gondwana (centred at current Antarctica). As a result, many issues in geology can now be explained, from the ‘faint young Sun paradox’ to Hadean geology and continental drift.
