Snowflake, historical image Featured 5 Jul 2008 Print

Snowflake, historical image

Snowflake. Light micrograph of a snowflake taken by Wilson Bentley (1865-1931). Bentley, a farmer from Vermont, USA, was the first person to successfully photograph snow flakes, taking the first photograph in 1885. He used a bellows camera attached to a light microscope. Snowflakes are symmetrical ice crystals that form in calm air with temperatures near the freezing point of water. The exact shape of a snowflake depends on local climatic conditions. Snowflakes typically have hexagonal symmetry. No two snowflakes are identical, as each experiences a wide range of conditions as it forms inside a cloud.

The head is heavily built and has the sharp teeth of a predator. T. rex is thought to have scavenged as well as hunted for food. The Ornithomimus dinosaur was about 6 metres long and 2 metres tall.

1987 storm wind strength record

1987 storm wind strength record. Data from a recording anemometer showing wind strength during the storm of 1987. A recording anemometer, or anemograph, consists of an instrument that is turned by the wind, attached to pens that trace the measurements on to a rotating drum. The traces show variations in wind force, and the strength and frequency of gusts over time. A break in the records was caused by a power failure. This storm hit the South East of England on 16th October 1987 bringing hurricane-force winds. It developed rapidly and forecasters were unable to predict its path or ferocity. Gusts measuring over 165 kilometres an hour were recorded on the South coast. The storm felled 15 million trees, severely damaged buildings, blew ships ashore and killed 18 people
