Fabelier Maladies, SymptĂ´mes, Traitements : Echangez sur Carenity Yeast Lab: the sound of microbes & magnetic fleas | sebastianehegarty Last week I had a wonderful day with Simon Park, recording the sounds of the microbiological laboratory at Surrey University. Simon, an expert in microbiological luminescence, had very kindly set up a number of cultures: a conical jar of yeast and two petri dishes of other luminescent microbe colonies. The cultures are kept in a series of incubator rooms set to different temperatures in order to aid the growth of microbes. The room set to human body temperature is breathtakingly warm; I had no idea that I was this hot. This initial visit to the lab was a kind of acoustic reconnaissance: lets listen to what is there to hear. We spent hours (and I do mean hours) trying different jars, different fleas, different microphones, and different spinners. In one of the incubator rooms I placed contact microphones against the sides of a conical jar containing yeast. Like this: Like Loading...

For data older than 7 days, use the Archive Download Tool. For more information, please see the SHP README (PDF). Download Keyhole Markup Language files of MODIS active fire data for the last 24 hours and 48 hours. An auto-updating KML is available for visualization of the active fire/hotspot detections for most parts of the world for the last 24 hours. The KML automatically refreshes every 2 hours and downloads the latest available MODIS active fire/hotspot detections. If you have Google Earth installed, you can open the KML directly or you can save it to your local disk for later viewing.
