My sister sent this to me and it made my day :) If you love the environment and chemistry as much as I do, you understand.

What Does Sound Look Like?When light passes between areas of different air density, it bends. You’ve probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You’re seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.
In the mid-19th century, German physicist August Toepler invented a photography technique called Schlieren Flow Visualization to visually capture these changes in density. The setup is a bit hard to explain in words (watch the video above for a full explanation) but it allows scientists and engineers to see things that are normally invisible: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze.

but in 3-dimensions, so in every possible direction at the same time.

This fall I will be starting my master’s in Water Science and Policy at the University of Delaware. In July I will start my research with the NEWRnet project in the Fair Hill watershed in a Maryland state park. I’m super excited!

Something personal about me. Not specifically chemistry but related to future chemistry-related research ;)
