Phase synchronization is a phenomenon in which separate oscillatory systems develop joint coherent behavior by some nonlinear mechanism. 
First described in 1673 by Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens, this phenomenon occurs for instance when an applauding audience suddenly starts to clap in unison or when human breathing patterns lock to multiples of the heart beat.

Two climate modes dominate the temperature variability in the eastern equatorial Pacific. Generated through air-sea interactions, the El Nino-Southern Oscillation is the tropical Pacific climate mode that disrupts weather patterns world wide about every 2 to 7 years.

As with any introduction of a new species to an area, there are concerns.

Ian Duncan managed a cashew nut research project in the Northern Territory during the 1980's.

Over the ten years of his project he found bug control a major problem.

The chemicals available at the time killed not just the pests, but the beneficial bugs as well.

"I got very concerned about this so i went to what was then the Northern Territory University to meet Dr keith Christian and I explained our problems to him and essentially what was agreed was a joint venture that they would find the appropriate researcher to start a program on the biological control of cashew ins…

Outlook Overview: Gravity Exists

By Christian Menegatti, Rachel Ziemba and Nouriel Roubini: The global economic outlook has deteriorated significantly since our last Outlook Update, as it has become clear that the slowdown in advanced economies is not a temporary soft patch.
