Barcelona's summer temperatures are reinforced by anthropogenic heat resulting from combustion by motorized traffic, reradiation by urban construction, and a shortage of green and open spaces for dissipation (Memon et al.
After we corrected the problem with the solar pump running too long, our flow meter, which clocked one pulse per gallon, showed a thermosyphon, which caused additional reradiation of already stored energy.
Light arriving upon the earth is delayed in its reradiation into space (Lotka, 1922) by being captured in configurations--mountains, eddies, organism--that impose various degrees of friction upon its dissipation.
The temperature map can be explained by reradiation of solar energy.

Assuming that heat losses from the flaming surface are by reradiation only, and the burning and ignition temperatures are similar and approximately equal to [T.
The amount of sunlight absorbed and the time lag for reradiation depend, respectively, on the reflectivity and heat capacity of the asteroid's surface.
High on the ECM menu is electronic jamming, the deliberate radiation or reradiation of EM energy to disrupt enemy use of electronic systems.
At these frequencies, there is a considerable savings in the cost of the LO and a reduction in LO reradiation because of the higher inherent 2 LO-to-RF isolation of these mixers.
Thermal reradiation produces a recoil effect that, albeit slight, can add up over time and influence spins.
Since the solid-state digital memory is extremely fast, the latency time for signal capture, manipulation and reradiation can be as short as five nanoseconds.
