Back to the Forest

In this video Laura Meredith, a graduate student in MIT's Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate, shares her thesis work which has involved building and deploying an instrument to the Harvard Forest Long Term Ecological Research site in central Massachusetts. The instrument measures hydrogen gradients that can, along with a suite of other measurements, be used to calculate hydrogen fluxes. These will be used to determine the strength and seasonality of the soil sink at Harvard Forest. Lau

Il est donc important de retracer la gen

The body is a saucer shaped 'bell', which is colorless except for four obvious violet gonads visible in the center of the disc. The outer edges are fringed with many small tentacles, and four stocky 'arms' surround the mouth. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge

Cynergies: Technologies that Hybridize Physical and Cyberspaces
This paper presents ways in which cybrids depend for their technology upon three existing models of architectural hybrid: display space, environmental computing, and augmented/mixed reality. Cybrids bring these techniques together into a synergistic whole that depends as much on the observer for its consistency as it does on its comprising technologies. This synergy is a product of corroborative behavior between different modes, which provide cybrid users with a coherent social/spatial experienc
