How Long Can Andean Condors Fly Without Flapping Their Wings

"Imagine your average three-year-old human child something around three feet or a meter tall probably covered in jam a now imagine that child trying to get off the ground with a pair of wings bid have to be pretty big wings. Welcome to the plight of the Indian condor species name Volt Hor griffiths the heaviest flying bird in the world. Weighing in at up to thirty three pounds or fifteen kilos, they keep their heavy bodies in the air with some of the longest wings in the world there wingspan can range over ten feet long that's over three meters. There are only a handful of birds carnally living on our planet have larger wings spans, and they're all pelagics, birds, a plastic birds being seabirds that soar over the open ocean for weeks at a time, such as fast petrels and sheer waters. As far as we know, the largest brand ever fly was the Pella. Gorna Sanders C., which lived twenty five to twenty, eight million years ago and was twice as large as the biggest bird living today with a wingspan of twenty four feet over seven meters. Seabirds can accomplish this. Thanks in part to the literally uplifting winds that flow over oceans the Indian condor. Mostly relies on updrafts high in the Andes mountains across much of Western, south. America. The problem with being such a huge bird is that it makes getting off the ground or even flapping those giant wings and flight a bit of an ordeal. Soaring is easy once they're up in the sky and that's mainly what Andean condors do they just float like hang gliders in the air currents sometimes serving the ground for dead animals to eat as a scavenger and sometimes just having an APP. But this means that taking off is the most costly part of the birds overall energy supply. Scientists have always known that they spend very little time flapping their wings but a study published in July of twenty. Twenty and the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found the Andean condors flap, their wings, a sum total of almost never. Not, only to the researchers find colossal birds, flap their wings one percent of their total flight time they discovered a bird could fly for five hours and more than one hundred miles or one hundred, fifty kilometers without flapping them once. The research team found that weather didn't affect how much flapping the condors were doing. Study Co author Hannah Williams a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior said in a press release. This suggests that decisions about when and where to land are crucial as not only do condor's need to be able to take off again but unnecessary landings will add significantly to their overall flight costs. All of which means that in Congress must understand how to use thermals, thermals being invisible patterns and bubbles of air moving all around in the atmosphere to their advantage, and they must understand this much better than scientists previously gave them credit for.

"Sleep. In the man falls out the window above me and lands on top of me on the bed. The trip had not been going well. I'd come to Madagascar to visit a Corey field program. It was a project being run by a conservation group at the time. My research was more on the computer bottling side. I was studying how climate change is affecting the world's coral reefs and I started doing field work, but I felt that I needed to learn more about how to run a project like the one these people had and they were nice enough to say, I could come in as sitting scientist for six weeks or a couple months. So I packed myself off their travelled around Madagascar, but they weren't me one thing. I might becoming a little bit off schedule and might miss their transport. Now the the city nearby was only hundred fifty kilometers away. So I thought, what's the big deal? I'm sure I can get there and I did miss the transport. So I was able to find out with with some help that there was a fishing company, a French company, the drove trucks up and down the coast, picking up squid from all the villages. So I managed to get a lifting the fishing company. Again, they warn me, it's less season humid. It may be a little bit slow. The roads aren't that good during the wet season. But it's only one hundred fifty kilometers. How long could it possibly take? I mean, it was the coast. It's this flat as a board. There's no mountains to cross. So I was like, you know, maybe a few hours or something. And so I was wait. When the man landed on me. There was some confusion. He was a. He was. He was French a French ex Pat of which there are many in the coastal towns of Madagascar. He was drunk. And as I said, he was quite confused. We exchanged some words. The words were spoken in a variety of different languages, and I can't really recount any of them here. That's for the best, but we came to a mutual understanding that he had entered the wrong room and he'd also entered the room the wrong way. So he was nice enough to leave out the door, and I try to get back to sleep. And a day later. And I mean a day in the scientific sense, it was exactly twenty four hours later. I climbed out of that same bed unglued myself from the sheets basically and walked off to go and pick up the truck. I was a bit suspicious as to why I had to meet at two AM, but that's what they told me. So we loaded on some bags, fifty kilogram bags of rice. They made sure the fishing coolers that were in the back fiscal was in the back row secure, and I got on there were few other passengers off. We went. It was a bumpy ride. It was not good for somebody with a lower back problem, but I was surprised. It was kind of an interesting adventure. We passed we Ford, some rivers. We passed on this road. There was part sand part rock. It was kind of exciting. We got stuck in the mud. By our three that got a little tiresome but we kept going, we're able to get back out and then it's some point getting around lunchtime I was told, oh, the truck stops in in the next village. That's as far as it goes. And we were only maybe a third of the way, but they said, don't worry. There's another truck. You can just get on the next one. And there was another truck and the driver was nice enough to say, I could sit next to him. It's like, okay, I'll sit on the seat next to him not the passenger seat that was like an actual seat next to the driver between the driver and the passenger seat. Well, it wasn't really a seat. There was no back and there was no base really either. Actually it was there's no pad. It was really just a metal frame like outer frame of the truck. So that was really the only thing between me and the engine block. So it was hot. I, I moved side to side probably once every two minutes to just avoid scalding. My, but basically definitely was not good sitting on a metal seat for my lower back. Although the heat probably helped a little bit. It was beautiful. So. So we traveled on, we stopped in some villages..

"The spectacular dinosaur graveyard in northeastern china where these entire ecosystems of dinosaurs were buried by volcanoes almost palm paste to hell so you had these dinosaurs preserved as fossils going about their everyday business and they were buried so quickly that the feathers even preserved and there are two tyrannosaur species from these ancient volcanoes that are covered in feathers so that's a really good sign that t rex probably had some kind of feather two so t rex wasn't frightening enough just imagine it as this double decker bus sized big bird from hell the real t rex and not flying so presumably the feathers with sums would have temperature control that's right so t rex was far too big to fly it was like a blimp than an airplane couldn't actually slapped it's tiny little arms to get up in the air and so a lot of dinosaurs were like that too a lot of dinosaurs had feathers but they were too big to fly or they didn't have big enough arms to support themselves in the air and so these feathers were probably there to keep those dinosaurs war they probably evolved for insulation similar to mammals evolved hair but then later on one group of dinosaurs velociraptor they got smaller and smaller their feathers started to elaborate their arms got longer they developed wings and then they developed the ability to fly and that's ramadhan birds came from a lush dinosaur still living sixty five million years ago there was this impact which you described so shocked extraorde i i see that seventy percent of the creatures will wiped out that is the dinosaurs and plenty of others as well but in some books it looks as if they lingered for quite a long time thousands of years anyway is that true yeah we're learning more and more about that extinction is like so many things about dinosaurs are just so many people around the world looking for new fossils right now and also studying the rocks as well that we're just learning a lot more about all aspects of dinosaur life dinosaur history but especially the extinction there's some really exciting new research has just been public about the extinction this new study just come out shows that temperature increased by five degrees global temperature five degrees within the first hundred thousand years after the asteroid hit so there was a lot of chaos right after that asteroid hit this thing was traveling faster than a jetliner was ten kilometers across at hit the earth with the force of over a billion her rochambeau bombs punched crater her in the cross more than one hundred fifty kilometers wide this was a really really big asteroid and it looks like it did most of his damage right away so probably most dinosaurs died out really quickly we're talking about hours days weeks months some might of staggered on and birds made it through we can't forget about birds but the other dinosaurs at least some probably saying around bit but what we do know is by ten thousand years after the asteroid hit the dinosaurs were gone because we have really good fossils that are dated really well from western north america and there are no dinosaur at all not even a single tooth but instead you have a bunch of teeth and jaws of the creatures took over from the dinosaurs the mammals and so the dinosaur fall was a sudden fall they were an empire for one hundred and fifty million years and then really they fell in a day and i think that's a really really sobering on cyber indeed steeper seti in his book the rise and fall of the dinosaurs he's truly marvellous production for the science by david fisher and hamish leery i'm robin williams

"The easiest way to describe what happened in the modern meteorologists office would be the most of us will be looking at the output from the mathematical models of the atmosphere and using raw data coming in to represent a starting position you can then use the equations of the atmosphere have the the moves arrows exchanges energy exchanges temperature moisture and so on those parameters can be represented with the cohesions in the model and it will predict what those numbers look like in a short time step ahead and if you keep leapfrogging those far enough into the future you can i get an idea of what say the temperature field display would look like in six hours time twelve hours and models now i used to work as a programmer in the metaphysics bracknell years ago on the civil computer and this is in the seventies before we all had computers at home and the models would split the atmosphere all over the globe up into a bit lucky imagine and onion with several different layers and on that onion their lines that cross like latitude longitude lines and each of those grid points represents a data value and in those days the computing power was so limited that the data points were one hundred fifty kilometers apart and there were ten onion skins in this model that represented the real virtual well so what happened is that as computers go quicker and more able we now have models that have data points four kilometers apart used regularly to drive your tv graphics for example and a lot of aviation meteorology in some specialised cases they're one kilometer apart they don't have ten onion skins if you like they have ninety so they're much better able to rep present the real physics of the atmosphere so forecasts are become much better and you can move them farther ahead in time and still get a good result so when you say there is a model basically people like yourself have written computer programs that know what the atmosphere does and they put some energy in and how it's going to move how the masses are going to move and how the energy is going to change the behavior of that patch of the earth surface and so we know from experience but also for modeling how it's likely to play out and how that's going to move around and never what is going to do to whether patterns systems around the world is that is that what you sensually it and the interesting follow on from that actually which is probably firm or significant important is that when you've tuned your models to be successful in the short term you know pretty well at the physics is working reasonably well they're still not powerful enough to represent individual show clouds accurately but they can get them in a in a sort of parameters way but nonetheless interesting point is that once you know the work what's to stop you running it not for next week or the week after but running it for next year the raft of that and the year after that and so on so you run these models for a model world's worth of thirty years data and see if the average temperatures that you cokie late match the average temperatures that we have in our current climate so you've calibrated the model to represent what we have now and then you can play golden do all the things that climate change people are interested in which is you can chop down the amazon rainforest you can irrigate the desert you can melt the polar ice caps and you can run the model to gain and see how those values change now you won't be able to represent it exactly but you give the scale of direction of where it will go and it's the refining of those models that gives people the various answers about what comet change might look like in one hundred years time until it's certainly true that the quality and the parent accuracy whether we're causing does appear to have improved dramatically in recent years now talking about the weather we've got this question few jane which adam has sentence why does the.
