How long does a hurricane usually last?

Question by Mysterious Gryphon: How long does a hurricane usually last?
I’m planning a trip to NOLA next week, and of course, there’s a chance of a hurricane. If Gustav does make landfall this weekend, how long will it be before residents are back in New Orleans?

We are supposed to arrive on Wednesday. Will it be safe or even habitable by then? Living in the Midwest, I have no idea how long or how damaging a hurricane can be, except for the catastrophic.

Hurricane can last for days especially when it out in the open for nothing to slow it down.

Growing up I always hear…
June too soon
July stand by
August a must
September remember
October all over

With that said, you can have Hurricane between June and October and have it last for days.

Liquid Tension Experiment (LTE Live) – #6 Acid Rain In January 1999, Petrucci, Portnoy, Levin, and Rudess give an amazing performance of songs from their first and second Liquid Tension Experiment side project. Unlike a Dream Theater performance, this is much less rehearsed… and even with some flaws, the genius and incredible musicianship is undeniable. THESE GUYS ARE SICK!!!

What are the 3 high cloud types and why are they thin, white, & often made of ice crystals? (10 easy points)?

What are the 3 high cloud types and why are they thin, white, & often made of ice crystals?

Best answer:

Answer by cyswxman
The three most common types are Cirrus, Cirrostratus, and Cirrocumulus. They are made of ice crystals because the air temperatures at the altitude of those clouds is cold enough that the water vapor sublimates directly into ice crystals.

The Job Outlook Of A Marine Biologist

The Job Outlook Of A Marine Biologist

Even though many people today are already familiar with the term marine biologist, several still do not realize the job title. The term can be used in different jobs and disciplines in marine science that deal with studying aquatic life. Even sociologists and economists dealing with marine resource conditions are included in the field of marine biology. You have to properly identify the job outlook to know which part you want to be included in.

Schools Offering Programs in Marine Biology

Several universities and colleges offer different degrees in marine biology, as well as other related fields. You can find more information about the various academic programs online. If you want to study along the Pacific Coast, there are a number of schools that you might want to look at such as the School of Fisheries at the University of Washington in Seattle, Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State, Humboldt University in California, University in Corvallis and University of California Programs at San Diego.

If you want to study in the Midwest, you can enrol at the University of Wisconsin. If you intend to study on the East Coast, you can choose University of Rhode Island, University of Miami, University of Maryland and University of Georgia. Gulf Coast schools include Auburn University, Texas A&M University and Louisiana State University.

The Courses

If you want to pursue a marine biology career, you have to take preparatory courses in physics, zoology, biology, chemistry, mathematics, biometrics and statistics. English is also vital since you will be writing and publishing scientific papers. Other courses in the aquatic sciences are also vital, such as oceanography, fishery biology and ichthyology. Courses in the social sciences are needed which generally deal with management and public policies.

Undergraduates

You undergraduate course does not have to be marine biology. You can graduate and have a degree in zoology, biology, fisheries or one of the animal sciences. Physical oceanographers may aim for an oceanography degree, having a lot of course work in computer modeling, math and physics. Biological oceanographers focus on both the physical and biological features of the sea and the interactions. You will need a bachelor’s or master’s degree to start any kind of marine biological research job.

Getting the Degree

An ideal sample degree will breakdown into the following: biology (45%) and zoology (28%). Undergraduate work may also be done in the following: fisheries (12%), conservation (3%), oceanography (5%), marine biology (2%), chemistry (2%), animal science (2%), biological oceanography (2%) and math (1%).

Among the individuals who acquired their master’s degree, majority chose either zoology or fisheries. Other popular picks include biology, marine biology, oceanography and biological oceanography. Other categories included are animal sciences, physical oceanography and ecology. Most Ph.D. degrees also chose either zoology or fisheries. Other doctorate degrees focused on marine biology, oceanography, biology, ecology and statistics.

Accreditation will depend largely on the school and governing bodies. You may also independently get accreditation by applying to the regional Higher Commission on Learning or regional association of colleges.

The Shadow of the Tsunami: and the Growth of the Relational Mind

The Shadow of the Tsunami: and the Growth of the Relational Mind

During early development, every human being is exposed to the relative impact of relational trauma – disconfirmation of aspects of oneself as having legitimate existence in the world of others – in shaping both the capacity for spontaneous human relatedness and the relative vulnerability to “adult-onset trauma.” To one degree or another, a wave of dysregulated affect – a dissociated “tsunami” – hits the immature mind, and if left relationally unprocessed leaves a fearful shadow that weak

Would I be able to view a live weather radar loop with an iPhone?

Question by Tony: Would I be able to view a live weather radar loop with an iPhone?
Im considering buying an unlocked iPhone to use with my T-mobile sim and was wondering if and how I could view a radar loop to see direction and intensity of approaching storms. It’s coming up on tornado season here in the midwest. If it’s as simple as loading a weather web page would my iPhone have the ability to loop the images like you can on a computer?

Best answer:

Answer by lil_munky4
In Australia i know you can access live weather loops from the Bureau of Meterology website

hope that helps
