Slow & Fast, but Not Furious—NYU Researchers Trace how Birds, Fish go with the Flow


Fish and birds, when moving in groups, could use two “gears” in ways that conserve energy, a team of Courant researchers has concluded. Its findings offer new insights into the contours of air and water flows--knowledge that could be used to develop more energy-efficient modes of transportation.
