A print inspired by Miami's tropical vistas
The Waterlust image that inspired this print was taken in our own backyard of Miami, the land of sandy beaches, world famous entertainment, and world infamous tropical storms. Perhaps nowhere else is the study of air-sea interaction more critical than here, a city located right smack in the middle of hurricane alley! The light reflecting off the surface of the water represents an incredible number of physical processes that ultimately affect all organisms above and below the surface.
86% Repreve® RPET (recycled polyester), 14% lycra, giving 5 post-consumer plastic bottles a positive future. 100% awesome! Printed using dye-sublimation, an environmentally friendly process which uses no water and minimizes waste.
Designed to be shorter in the front and longer in the back to best support and show off your womanly assets.
Resilient 4-way stretch and recovery for superior shape retention. We're talking to you yogis, let's see you drop Trikanasana on a SUP!.
Sorbtek fiber technology for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability. Get wet, get dry, stay stoked!
Built to stay put for the active Waterluster. Wide waistband for added security or fold over for a lower rise. Bottom line, when you huck a gainer off a cliff, these puppies ain't goin' nowhere!
10% of profits from your purchase will be donated to SUSTAIN Laboratory, where scientists conduct fundamental studies to model and understand air-sea interactions, wave dynamics, and turbulence. Their research supports the development of disaster-resistant and resilient coastal communities in South Florida and around the World.
It's well known that over 70% of Earth's surface is covered with water, but did you realize this impacts the flow of heat and energy around the world? Water has a specific heat value, a material property that describes how much energy is required to heat it, that is approximately four times greater than air. This means that air will heat and cool much faster than water. Because of this, the air and sea are often interacting at different temperatures and exchanging energy. The study of air-sea interaction is critical to understanding the life cycle of a tropical cyclone. As a storm develops it can strengthen or weaken depending on the available energy it can extract from the ocean's surface. The processes that drive this energy exchange are extremely complex and are the topic of ongoing scientific research. At the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. SUSTAIN Laboratory at the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science, scientists utilize a state of the art wind/wave tank to better understand these intricacies. 10% of your purchase will be donated to support the graduate students that work in this lab. Specifically, the funds will be used for creative projects that enable the students to communicate their work to the broader public such as through film, photography and art.
