Misty Views: Yorkshire And Cumbria, England

Dew point is the temperature where air becomes saturated with water vapour. When difference between dew point and air temperature is less than 2.5 degrees centigrade, the air condenses into water droplets, which we see as fog.

This film was born from my love of fog and mist, and how it can transform landscape from ordinary to mysterious. It has footage from fifteen different morning when I had to wake up stupidly early and drive around to find location where the fog appears, and wasn’t too thick.

At least same amount of early mornings was spent coming home empty handed, due to fog either not appearing or being too thick and not being able to find high enough ground. Weather forecasts are pretty good nowadays, but not hundred percent accurate.

Filmed in various location in north Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Travel Views: The Top Ten Waterfalls In Iceland

There are thousands of waterfalls in all forms and sizes scattered around Iceland. We’ve compiled 10 of the top waterfalls to visit in Iceland here. For your geographical convenience, they are listed in counterclockwise order around the country, starting from southwestern Iceland.

1. Gullfoss

Gullfoss, or “Golden Falls”, is one of the 3 must-see attractions of the famous Golden Circle route in southwestern Iceland. This two-tiered waterfall drops 32 metres (105 feet) into a narrow, deep canyon, creating an impressive spray of mist that often produces rainbows in sunny weather.

2. Seljalandsfoss

This towering cascade in South Iceland is impressive to look at from a distance, but its wow-factor lies in the footpath leading behind the tumbling water.

This means you can admire Seljalandsfoss from multiple angles and enjoy the exhilarating experience of walking behind it. It’s no wonder why so many feel that this is one of the best waterfalls in Iceland!

Views: Hunting Dinosaur Fossils In East Montana

“It’s Cretaceous crime scene work: We have a body — how did it get here?” Kelsie Abrams, Fossil Lab Manager for the UW’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, left her climate-controlled lab to wield jackhammers and shovels on a dusty hillside of the Hell Creek Formation in remote eastern Montana, possibly the best place in the world to find fossils from the Late Cretaceous. In this short film, follow Abrams and the dig team from the field to the lab, as they unravel mysteries from the end of the age of dinosaurs.

Science: Extreme Old Age Gene Quest, Gravitational ‘Glint’ Waves, Early Springs

The quest for a longer life continues – raising the question of whether we can escape death. The team discusses a rare gene variant that may explain why centenarians live so long – and how we might be able to use it to create age-defying drugs.

The team explores a theory that suggests gravitational waves may be the thing that finally helps us detect dark matter – we just need to look for the ‘gravitational glint’.

Spring is rolling around earlier and earlier. The team examines a new study which shows that since the 1980s, the warming climate has brought the season forward by a month – which could have major ecological implications. They also discuss a study which looks at the impact of marine heatwaves on things like coral and fish populations.
