The spatial scenarios with clumped
sets were expected to be most realistic, but considering the amount of uncertainty in the nature of the interactions of sea turtles with the pelagic longline fishery, we thought it useful to analyze other distributions as well.
As expected, all the nanotubes in the distilled water rapidly clumped
and most settled at the bottom of the flask, whereas in the surfactant solution, some nanotubes dispersed.
And when the temperature was raised to 35[degrees]C, the complex clumped
into aggregates that were easily separated from the water with a short spin in a centrifuge.
Because these putative particles move slowly, they would have clumped
together earlier in cosmic history than did baryons.
Hafernik and Saul-Gershenz found that beetles typically stay clumped
for 5 days but sometimes hold out for 2 weeks.
Instead of being distributed smoothly within and just outside the cluster, the gas clumped
into two distinct regions.
In this way, explains Steinhardt, large-scale cold spots in the microwave background reveal regions where matter has clumped
together, while hot spots indicate regions with an unusually low density of matter.
When graphite is vaporized by a laser, the liberated carbon atoms are found to be clumped
together in remarkably specific numbers: If more than 40 atoms make up a cluster, then an even number will be in the clump, while in smaller clusters, certain "magic numbers'--11, 15, 19 and 23--are most common.
