(Left) The graph shows that on average, present-day hurricanes weaken more slowly than hurricanes did 50 years ago. (Right) This slowing of intensity means that on average, present-day hurricanes are...

The scientists found a strong correlation between the time it took for a hurricane to weaken after landfall and sea surface temperature, when both were plotted by year.

Water issuing from an ordinary faucet tells a complex tale of its journey through a pipe. At high velocities, the faucet’s gushing stream is turbulent: chaotic, disorderly -- like the crash of ocean...

(Left: Flow in a pipe. At high velocities, the flow is turbulent, and at intermediate velocities, transitional. The transitional flow is a mix of eddying flows and laminar flows. The eddying flows...
