How Geckos Move Across Water

Swimming? Running? Great gecko footage.

The Asian house gecko can move across water at great speed by using a half-running, half-swimming motion.

Whoa. Great Pic. Best KH waves I have seen....From NOAA AWC, they write, "Check out these Kelvin–Helmholtz instabilities that were taken over southern Missouri by pilot Shawn McCauley! These clouds look like breaking waves in the ocean because it is the same physical process." #ScienceIsCool .. NOAA NWS Aviation Weather Center

Last post was real lava. Here's water that looks like lava for a few minutes a day, a few days a year at Yosemite.

Once a year around this time, when conditions are just right, Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park lights up at sunset with a majestic spectacle of orange and yellow. See the phenomenon in action.

At a press conference at the APS March Meeting today, the APS Committee on LGBT Issues released the first ever report on the status of LGBT+ physicists. LGBT physicists face issues of isolation and harassment in their departments and workplaces. Trans physicists experience much higher rates of exclusion and isolation. The report gives specific recommendations to make the physics community more inclusive and safe for the LGBT+ community.

Exciting news from the DFD Exec Comm's email today: We are pleased to report that our efforts to start a new APS journal dedicated to fluids research were successful. During the summer and early fall, the various issues related to starting the new journal were thoroughly discussed by the APS Board of Directors, APS Council of Representatives, APS Committee on Scientific Publications, and the lead and managing editors of the existing APS journals. In view of these discussions, on Monday afternoon, October 12, the APS Board of Directors gave final approval for the new journal in a unanimous vote. This announcement marks the first step in launching the journal. We expect that Physical Review Fluids will be open for manuscript submissions in the first quarter of 2016 and we will keep you informed as further progress is made. We urge you to give your support to Physical Review Fluids by submitting your best work.

We are deeply indebted to many people for their time, care and effort for making this journal a reality.
