They cover phenomena at the micro, nano, and atto-scales, and techniques, theory, and supporting data, and detail recent concepts in the physics and chemistry of interfaces of rigid and deformable particles in homo- and heteroaggregate dispersed systems like emulsions, dispersoids, suspensions, nanopowders, foams, fluosols, polymer membranes, biocolloids, and plasmas, and the hydrodynamic, electrodynamic, and thermodynamic instabilities that occur at interfaces.
Living organisms are complex heterogeneous systems in which biocolloids and physicochemical reactions play the leading role.
Further extrapolation reveals that iron in the bow section, assuming 20,000 tons of iron, and that the rusticles were removing the iron at a constant rate, could be totally exported into the environment as red dust and biocolloids in approximately 280 to 420 years.
