    Ocean Wave Demo

    Hey all, I am trying to set up an ocean wave demonstration in a fish tank. Does anyone have any suggestion on how I could show various wave properties such as wave length, wave height, wave period, fetch etc in a tank that's about four feet long? I was thinking that there might be a way to use dyes or somesuch. Thanks!

    sea water

    there are many dissolved ions in sea water that make up the salts in water; sodium, chlorine, potassium, calcium, etc. On average the ocean has a salinity of 35 ppt(parts per thousand) or 3.5% The salts mostly originate from the weathering and erosion of rocks from land and in the ocean itself. All of the major ions exist in a constant proportion so that no matter what the exact salinity, there will be the same ratio of ions. salt water is usually higher where there is high evaporation or at the poles where fresh water is removed but the salts remain in a higher concentration. It is usually lower near river mouths or areas of high precipitation.
  3. I read a review on a new antivirus software (can't remember the name) that directs all internet traffic on the computer into a virtual drive so that if any viruses are downloaded they stay in the virtual drive and can't spread to the rest of the computer. It's really cool because it doesn't need to check files against a periodically updated list and can stop viruses that aren't well known yet.
  4. that would be nice. I dont know if it would work though. thanks for the input
  5. Hey all, I finally decided to dual boot my self built computer. At first I tried Ubuntu, but the drives for ATI Radeon graphics cards are messed up and xorg wont start. before I'm forced to risk messing up the computer by trying to configure drivers , I was wondering if there are any distros that are as user friendly as ubuntu, yet with better drivers and such. Any opinions? Thanks
