The air flow and resulting pattern of erosion and the distribution of rocks determines their s ...[Read More]

Imaggeo On Monday: Lichtenberg Figure Visualisation

A visualisation of an electrical charge moving through plastic. Machines are used to discharge electricity onto surfaces then metallic powders are used to visualise the static. The image is then exposed onto a photopolymer plate and etched with ink. Is is called the photogravure process.   Description by Nicolas Strappini, after the description on imaggeo.egu.eu.   Imaggeo is the EGU’s o ...[Read More]
