Heat loss from a cow — that’s the deal in this week’s Improbable Research podcast.
- Heat loss from a cow — Khan, Zahid A., Irfan Anjum Badruddin, G. A. Quadir, and K. N. Seetharamu (2006). ‘A Quick and Accurate Estimation of Heat Losses from a Cow.’ Biosystems Engineering 93 (3): 313–23.
- Cows and heat exchange — Gebremedhin, K. G., and B. X. Wu (2003). ‘Characterization of Flow Field in a Ventilated Space and Simulation of Heat Exchange between Cows and Their Environment.’ Journal of Thermal Biology 28 (4): 301–19.
- Improved way to estimate the surface area of an elephant — Sreekumar, K. P., and G. Nirmalan (1990). ‘Estimation of the Total Surface Area in Indian Elephants (Elephas maximus indicus).’ Veterinary Research Communications 14 (1): 5–17.
The mysterious John Schedler or the shadowy Bruce Petschek perhaps did the sound engineering this week.
The Improbable Research podcast is all about research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK — real research, about anything and everything, from everywhere —research that may be good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless. CBS distributes it, on the CBS Play.it web site, and on iTunes and Spotify).
