Currambene Falls, The Falls Picnic Reserve

Currambene and Parma Creeks meet by falling into a waterhole which drains into a tidal estuary close to the Pacific Ocean. Here, the sisters have crafted an amphitheater of waterfalls, potholes and overhang caves. More pics at: http://www.silenttheory.net

You may be looking at one of the oldest homes in the world - an overhang cave that has protected 2,000 generations.

"Ground penetrating radar isn't something from the latest sci-fi movie. It's actually a tool used by soil scientists to measure the amount of moisture in soil quickly and easily.

As with most technologies, it is getting better and new ways to use it are being tested. Jonathan Algeo, a graduate student at Rutgers University, has spent his studies making ground penetrating radar better for different uses, such as measuring soil moisture.

"It's a very common tool in research, agriculture, engineering, and the military for looking at buried objects and measuring water content," Algeo explains. "One of its main benefits is that it is very fast. One example is a tool with a wheel that allows the radar to take measurements as you drag it along the ground. In this way, you can very quickly take measurements across a large field or a line that's miles in length. Radar can be used quickly over a large area to answer many different questions."

The technology can be used to find underground tunnels, bedrock, or cracks of metal in the supports of a bridge. In terms of soil, the questions can vary. How much water is near the surface? How does it vary throughout a field site? The near-surface water content can affect climate, so it's important for computer-based climate models as well.

Being able to measure soil moisture in a field can allow farmers to optimize water usage so they aren't using too much or too little, especially in dry areas where water is limited. Looking at the very shallow subsurface allows farmers to test the efficiency of their irrigation systems.

How does it do this? "Ground penetrating radar uses two antennae. One puts out a signal and another receives it," Algeo says. "The outgoing signal is similar to a microwave or cell phone signal. That signal travels in all directions, but most of the energy is directed into the ground. When there is a buried object or a change in material, the radar signal reflects back to the surface, where it is picked up by the other antenna."

He adds that when there is more water in the soil, the waves move slower. When there is less water, they move faster. A scientist can use information the antennae collect from the waves to estimate the water content of the soil".

The passing of Comet 46P/Wirtanen will assuredly be an interesting thing to look forward to in the coming months! 😁

Researchers reveal the story of the oldest stars and galaxies, compiled from 20 years of simulating the early universe - The Big Bang has captured our imagination like no other theory in science: the magnificent, explosive birth of our Universe. But do you know what came next?

"When astrophysicists look at the gamma-ray glow from a galaxy outside our own, all they typically see is a small spot because the galaxy is extremely far away. So, when a galaxy appears as an extended blob, something extraordinary must be going on that could help researchers better understand the properties of deep space.

Now, scientists, including researchers from the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have compiled the most detailed catalog of such blobs using eight years of data collected with the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on NASA's Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope. The blobs, including 19 gamma-ray sources that weren't known to be extended before, provide crucial information on how stars are born, how they die, and how galaxies spew out matter trillions of miles into space."

Escalating the conflict will do nothing to win the war because #Trump's policies will damage the #USeconomy and drag the rest of the world down with it. A full-blown #US - #China #tradewar would push the world into an economic frenzy, according to the IMF, the ECB and other economic organizations. Which organization or analyst is right might be irrelevant because everyone loses, not just China and the US.

In the US, Trump supporters, ironically, are paying the highest price. Emotionally charged and without alternative sources of information, his support base blindly believes the anti-China rhetoric first propagated by the 'independent and objective' media and now amplified by the Trump administration. Further, Democrats and Republicans are united against China. Popular and bipartisan support is probably what emboldens Trump to escalate the trade (and geopolitical) wars against China.

The rigging of American politics
Political systems depend on legitimacy. In America, that legitimacy is failing.
By Ezra Klein@ezraklein Oct 16, 2018

"Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court by an unpopular president who won 3 million fewer votes than the runner-up. He was confirmed by a Senate majority that represents a minority of the country. He was confirmed despite most Americans telling pollster after pollster they did not want him seated on the Supreme Court. ..."
