Top 10 Bizarre Animals that Will Stun You

Top 10 Bizarre Animals that Will Stun You | Geography | Scoop.it

It is difficult and may be impossible to assure that you know all the animal species that exist on earth even if you are a specialist because there are millions that already exist and there are others which are discovered for the first time because they are hidden and can be rarely seen. Most of... .. Read More http://www.topteny.com/top-10-bizarre-animals-that-will-stun-you/

Male-only gene trick could leave invasive fish species floundering | Geography | Scoop.it
A genetic modification that creates male-only populations could give us a new weapon against invasive fish such as carp that plague our waterways. “Daughterless technology”, which works by removing females…

Honey crystallization as an analogue for magma segregation and cumulate textures

Honey crystallization as an analogue for magma segregation and cumulate textures | Geography | Scoop.it

There is clearly some crystal settling going on there, and it appears that the more crystals there are, the easier it is to trap bubbles. When the clots of crystals get too dense, they peel off (stope) and drop down to the floor of the jar. Similar sorting of minerals by (a) crystallization sequence and (b) density occurs within crystallizing magma chambers. I’m not sure where the bubbles fit into this analogy – perhaps they are low-density minerals, or miarolitic cavities?

Comparing Urban Footprints Around the World

Comparing Urban Footprints Around the World | Geography | Scoop.it

"In the above poster the cities are arranged (roughly, in order to maximize space) by population. Clearly, size and population are not directly correlated. Some cities take up a lot more space for a smaller population. The relationship between the two, of course, is known as density (population density, urban density)."

Jason Wilhelm's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:21 PM

Urban sprawl is a rising problem in the world due to the lack of control and its massive impact on the surrounding environment. These footprints show how unique each city's sprawl is. The surrounding environment is playing a huge role in where and how far each city extends. Chicago, for example, is limited on its eastern side due to Lake Erie's close proximity, and Cleveland is in a similar situation but on its north side where Lake Erie is. 

Sid McIntyre-DeLaMelena's curator insight, May 29, 2014 12:35 PM

The cities are organized (approximately) to population and shows the size of cities accordingly. The different sizes of cities and their correlating populations is thus revealed from urban places around the world. 

Urban regions stay rather functional and could be seem similar across the board, focusing on major economic activity and transportation.
