  Sapping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sapping, or undermining, was a siege method used since Antiquity against a walled city, fortress or castle.
Successful sapping usually ended the battle since either the defenders would no longer be able to defend and surrender, or the attackers would simply charge in and engage the defenders in close combat.
Sapping saw a brief resurgence as a military tactic during the First World War when army engineers would attempt to break the stalemate of trench warfare by tunneling under no man's land and laying large quantities of explosives beneath the enemy's trench.

 Simulation of Groundwater Sapping
Groundwater sapping is erosion by groundwater that emerges as seeps and springs.
Groundwater sapping is presumed to be able to function at low temperatures because groundwater could remain unfrozen at depth because of the high geothermal heat gradient on early Mars, and water emerging at springs might occur beneath a protective ice cap even at low temperatures.
In this and the previous sapping simulation the origin of the groundwater that is producing the sapping channels is assumed to be areally uniform.

Sapping, or undermining, was a siege method used in the Middle Ages against fortified castles.
Successfully sapping a wall usually meant the end of the battle since either the defenders would no longer be able to defend and surrender, or the attackers would simply charge in and engage the defenders in close combat.
Sapping saw a brief resurgence as a military tactic in WWI when ambitious army engineers would attempt to break the stalemate of trench warfare by tunneling through No Man's Land and laying large quantities of explosives directly under the enemy's trench.

If you are unsure, poke a small hole in the tree and come back in a week, if there is sap there, you have a winner, if not, find a different type of tree.
Once you have collected enough dry sap you have 2 choices: 1: grind the sap into a powder on the spot (see step 9 for details) or homogenize (make all of the sap one consistency, color, etc.) if you just grind it go to step 9.
Heat until all sap has mixed and is uniform in color and has no major chunks (small ones are usually ok).

 Energy Citations Database (ECD) - Energy and Energy-Related Bibliographic Citations
A computer simulation model was developed to quantify the ground-water sapping processes, using a cellular automata algorithm with coupled surface runoff and ground-water flow for a permeable, resistant layer over an impermeable, friable unit.
Simulations using geologically reasonable parameters demonstrate that relatively rapid erosion of the shales by surface runoff, ground-water sapping, and slumping of the limestones, and detailed control by hydraulic conductivity inhomogeneities associated with structures explain the depressions, escarpments, and associated landforms and deposits.
Using episodic wet pulses, keyed by{delta}{sup 18}O deep-sea core record, the model produced tufa ages that are statistically consistent with the observed U/Th tufa ages.

 NewHampshire.com: News: Maple malaise is sapping sugarers
The right combination of temperatures could cause a significant sap flow, capping a maple sugar season that so far has been disappointing.
Cold weather early in the season followed by warm temperatures means sugarers will end up with half to two-thirds of their normal crops this season, said Henry Marckres of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture.
Sugarers rely on freezing nights, followed by thawing days for the sap to run.

 CBS News | Sapping A Hurricane's Strength | October 29, 2004 12:02:12
Scientists say applications are decades away but the research is under way, an announcement that comes during a busy and deadly hurricane season in the Caribbean and Florida.
The techniques under study have not been tested on a real hurricane, but researchers using computer models say they have practiced introducing variations in precipitation, evaporation and air temperature to sap a hurricane's strength or redirect it.
The researchers say these changes could be brought about by beaming microwaves from a satellite to heat water vapor around a storm, or by using a biodegradable oil slick to limit ocean evaporation, the source of a storm's energy.

The shortage of nurses in the U.S. and the U.K. has triggered an exodus, putting the Philippines' health care system on the verge of collapse.
Actually, we're hardly sapping their health care system, unless you consider bringing the nurses who are forced to work as unpaid volunteers while waiting for a paid position to open to a paid position in the US to be sapping their system.
Quality may be a concern, but my own hospital has recruited from the Phillapines, and every nurse that I've worked with has been clinically curious as well as sound, and very interested in improving their skills and knowledge base.
