Reblogged from Wattsup with comments of my own.
Try to hold this in Your mind:
The brown dot represent Mount Everest (in this scale 1 mm) and the blue the Mariner Grave (in this scale 1 mm) Please note scale Earth radie 6 378 km where each km is represented by 1 mm on map.
We humans never gone deeper than Mariner Grave no matter that we visited our Moon and sent rockets far beyond….
Natural Forces- Erosion
(but there are more types)
When erosion on sand and/or coral reef occurs along coasts the ”land” always will loose areas to the Sea. If there are houses or settlements close to water, sooner or later those will ”disappear”. That’s due to the Natural Forces mostly to the force we call Erosion.
two phenomena are common: Wind, waves and temperature allows the sand/coral to become undermined and the land above piece by piece falls into water. Sometimes down in the form of landslides.
Depending on the area where they occur, tidal power and strength of ebb and flow, this can mean anything from that sand is spread out over a larger area of land near, with the seemingly may look as if the water has been raised or that the sand is spread by wind and waves over much large surfaces.
Another beachfront effect of erosion, in the form of sludge, gravel, and pollutants including carried out thanks to meandering rivers. Water cycle makes the water trying to reach the lowest point possible. While travelling from land to Sea the speed force in rivers are lower in the middle of the streams. This causes eroded land/sand and so on to fall into the water bringing the sludge deposit to the sides and close to entering the Sea river delta might occure/arise. Normal school knowledge that has been forgotten can be repeated

Guest essay by Anthony R. E.
Recently, I read a posting by Kip Hansen on Chaos and Climate. (Part 1 and Part 2) I thought it will be easier for the layman to understand the behavior of computer models under chaotic conditions if there is a simple example that he could play. I used the attached file in a course where we have lots of “black box” computer models with advance cinematic features that laymen assume is reality.
Consider a thought experiment of a simple system in a vacuum consisting of a constant energy source per unit area of q/A and a fixed receptor/ emitter with an area A and initial absolute temperature, T . The emitter/receptor has mass m , specific heat C, and Boltzmann constant σ. The enclosure of the system is too far away such that heat emitted by the enclosure has no effect on…
