Radiational Cooling

Science / Weather / Radiational Cooling: The cooling of the earth's surface and the adjacent air. Although it occurs primarily at night, it happens when the earth's surface suffers a net loss of heat due to outgoing radiation.

Air Cooling

Technology / Motorcycle / Air Cooling: A method of dissipating heat from a motorcycle engine to keep it at operating temperature by way of air flow. In practice, cooling is effected by air rushing around a moving motorcycle engine and is a MORE

Supercooling

Science / Chemistry / Supercooling: Liquids at temperatures below their normal freezing points are said to be 'supercooled'. MORE

Water Cooling

Technology / Motorcycle / Water Cooling: Also known as "liquid cooling," this system includes a radiator and fluid to dissipate heat. Liquid is constantly circulated between the radiator and motorcycle engine cylinders when the engine is ope MORE

Radiational Cooling

Science / Weather / Radiational Cooling: The cooling of the earth's surface and the adjacent air. Although it occurs primarily at night, it happens when the earth's surface suffers a net loss of heat due to outgoing radiation. MORE

Radiational Tide

Science / Tides and Currents / Radiational Tide: Periodic variations in sea level primarily related to meteorological changes such as the semi daily (solar) cycle in barometric pressure, daily (solar) land and sea breezes, and seasonal (annual) chan MORE
