Turbulence flows are characterized by their viscous dissipation rates ɛ and the kinematic viscosity of the fluid ν, but the effects of turbulence on organisms such as microalgae smaller than the Kolmogorov inertial-viscous length scale LK ≡ (ν3/ε)/14 depend on the stress τ ≡ µγ, where µ = ϱν is the dynamic viscosity, ρ is the density, and the rate-of-strain(More)
The theory of gravitational structure formation in astrophysics and cosmology is revised based on real fluid behavior and turbulent mixing theory. Gibson's 1996-1998 theory balances fluid mechanical forces with gravitational forces and density diffusivity with gravitational diffusivity at critical viscous, turbulent, magnetic, and diffusion length scales(More)
Turbulence and turbulent mixing in natural fluids begin with big bang turbulence powered by spinning combustible combinations of Planck particles and Planck antiparticles. Particle prograde accretions on a spinning pair release 42% of the particle rest mass energy to produce more fuel for turbulent combustion. Negative viscous stresses and negative(More)
Sea surface brightness spectral anomalies from a Honolulu municipal outfall have been detected from space satellites in 200 km areas extending 20 km from the wastewater diffuser (Bondur 2005, Keeler et al. 2005, Gibson et al. 2005). Dropsonde and towed body microstructure measurements show outfall enhanced viscous and temperature dissipation rates above the(More)
[1] Sea surface brightness anomalies caused by a municipal wastewater discharge are detected from space in areas much larger than their submerged turbulence source. The mechanism involves a complex interaction between currents, topography, tides, vertical and horizontal mixing, internal waves and stratified turbulence. Citation: Keeler, R. N., V. G. Bondur,(More)
An unexpected alignment of 2-4-8-16 cosmic microwave background spherical harmonic directions with the direction of a surprisingly large WMAP temperature minimum, a large radio galaxy void, and an unexpected alignment and handedness of galaxy spins have been observed. The alignments point to RA = 202, δ = 25 and are termed the “Axis of Evil”. Already many(More)
The origin of life and the origin of the Universe are among the most important problems of science and they might be inextricably linked. Hydro-gravitational-dynamics cosmology predicts hydrogen–helium gas planets in clumps as the dark matter of galaxies, with millions of planets per star. This unexpected prediction is supported by quasar microlensing of a(More)
Jeans’s (1902 & 1929) gravitational instability criterion gives truly spectacular errors in its predictions of cosmological structure formation according to Gibson’s (1996) new theory. It is suggested that the linear perturbation stability analysis leading to the acoustic Jeans length scale criterion L ≥ LJ ≡ Vs/(ρG) 1/2 is quite irrelevant to gravitational(More)
The standard model for gravitational structure formation in astrophysics, astronomy, and cosmology is questioned. Cold dark matter (CDM) hierarchical clustering cosmology neglects particle collisions, viscosity, turbulence and diffusion and makes predictions in conflict with observations. From Jeans 1902 and CDMHC, the non-baryonic dark matter NBDM forms(More)
