MPBN Interviews Jumars About Suspension Feeders

MPBN recently talked with University of Maine marine scientist Pete Jumars about his project that investigates how nonturbulent flow enters pipes, from engineered pipes to clam siphons. Jumars, a professor of marine sciences and oceanography in the School of Marine Sciences and at the Darling Marine Center, has uncovered an erroneous scientific calculation regarding flow velocity into a pipe from a larger source of water. Approaches used to estimate pumping costs of organisms living on or in the bottom of a sea or lake have thus far been based on the flawed equation.
