30. Climate Sensitivity and Human Population
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) Climate sensitivity is defined as either the temperature change resulting from a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration or the temperature change resulting from a 1W/m2 increase in radiative forcing. There are several different climate sensitivities that take into account different feedbacks in the climate system. The simplest climate sensitivity is black body sensitivity, which does not account for any feedbacks but gi
Inventing Bar Graphs
In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad discovers a bug problem in the Cybrary. They know that something needs to be done to stop the bugs before they eat everything in the Cybrary, so the CyberSquad creates a bar graph to display the number of bugs they found in each room. Ms. Fileshare is concerned about the bug problem until she is shown a different bar graph that shows the number of bugs in each room to be much smaller. The CyberSquad must figure out why the two graph
8.851 Strong Interactions: Effective Field Theories of QCD (MIT)
This is a course in the construction and application of effective field theories, which are the modern tool of choice in making predictions based on the Standard Model. Concepts such as matching, renormalization, the operator product expansion, power counting, and running with the renormalization group will be discussed. Topics will be taken from factorization in hard processes relevant for the LHC, heavy quark decays and CP violation, chiral perturbation theory, non-relativistic bound states in
Giant Mirrors to Capture the Universe
As crowds cheer on the Arizona Wildcats football team, something amazing is happening within the stadium below. Here in the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab, teams of scientists use a great oven to spin-cast molten glass into the largest, most perfect telescope mirrors in the world.

Mt. Osceola Gulley Summit - time lapse 2/26/12 - Started with bushwhacking then up the gulley. A bit chilly and windy but made it up to the summit by 5 and back out (via East Osceola) by 8:30. Enough snow had been blowing and drifting to cause drifts 10-15 feet high so when you're up on top of the snow you're literally walking on the tops of the trees that are buried in the snow. The descent included about 1000+ vertical feet of butt-sliding, which was a lot of fun (and some slides very fast and a bit scary at times in

Feed-in tariffs for renewable electricity - Hans-Josef Fell, MP
The adoption of the EEG led directly to the phenomenally successful German feed-in tariff policy. The EEG is the foundation for the technological developments in photovoltaics, biogas, wind power and geothermal energy in Germany, which are admired throughout the world. The underlying principle of the EEG has now been copied in dozens of countries, as well as most Australian states and territories.
