  • This paper studies the effect of a magnetic field on the distribution of hydrodynamic perturbations at large distances from their source. The fluctuation structure of the flow was investigated using the cross-correlation functions by recording the fluctuations of the scalar potential of the electromagnetic field induced during the motion of the liquid. The relationship between correlation functions of conduction transducer signals and flow structure are discussed. A model is presented and for the investigation the authors chose the flow in a tube with large-scale hydrodynamic perturbations appearing during transverse flow past a cylinder. The experiment was conducted on a mercurymore » MHD test bench. A schematic diagram of the investigated model is shown and a scheme of symmetric and asymmetric arrangement of the electrodes of conduction transducers in the measurement section is given. It is shown that the increase of the MGD interaction parameter creates conditions favorable for the development of large-scale structures that are highly correlated among themselves.« less
  • A test is proposed of the hypothesis that the large-scale distribution of galaxies is generated by large-scale pressure gradients in protogalactic gas, due to pregalactic explosions or other inhomogeneous energy sources at redshifts z< or approx. =10. Pressure inhomogeneities in hot gas lead to anisotropy in the microwae background via the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Compton heating effect. The amplitude of the predicted anisotropy is estimated using simplified models is found to conflict with current upper limits. Several possible complications are considered and are found to increase the predicted anisotropy. Hydrodynamical effects may significantly affect the matter distribution on galactic scales but probablymore » cannot produce the large-scale galaxy clustering on scales of the order of approx.10 Mpc without violating this constraint.« less
  • The transport, optical properties, total mass, and removal of smoke produced by forest fires in western Canada during late July and early August 1982 are studied using NOAA 7 Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data. Color composite imagery is produced to track the movement of the smoke over Canada and the United States as the smoke traveled thousands of kilometers from the source region. Smoke optical thickness, particle size, and single scattering albedo (ratio of particle scattering to extinction) are computed using radiances measured by AVHRR bands 1 (0.58-0.68 {mu}m) and 2 (0.72-1.10 {mu}m). Results show that smoke opticalmore » thickness ranged from less than 0.1 greater than 3.7 and the geometric mean mass radii ranged from 0.3 to 0.9 {mu}m. The smoke single scattering albedo ranged from 0.9 to nearly 1.0. The total smoke mass over the eastern United States, computed using the derived particle size and optical thickness, ranged from 0.1 to 0.5 Tg which is close to the 0.5 Tg estimated to have been produced by the fires based on the forest fuel content. The smoke lifetime is estimated to be between 15 and 20 days.« less
