Exotic AWE Theorizing
Sept 8, 2019     Dave Santos

Those who have followed the academic paper trail here over the years will find various streams of AWE-applicable science coming together in this paper that particularly maps out an intersection between Faraday Waves and MetaMaterials, shining new light in our exotic context of top-down reasoning about megascale kite formation dynamics. Water surface tension here acts as a conceptual proxy for an extended kite lattice layer kept aloft in reverse-pumping mode. This could ultimately be an ITCZ AWE preview-
