  YouTube - Microsoft Surface - The Possibilities
Surface is a 30-inch display in a table-like form factor that's easy for individuals or small groups to interact with in a way that feels familiar, just like in the real world.
Surface computing is a new way of working with computers that moves beyond the traditional mouse-and-keyboard experience.
Surface computing recognizes many points of contact simultaneously, not just from one finger, as with a typical touch screen, but up to dozens and dozens of items at once.

The line meets the surface in a certainnumber,of points, and, as already mentioned, the order of the surface is equal to the number of these intersections We have through the line a certain number of tangent planes of the surface, and the class of the surface is equal to the number of these langent planes.
A plane may meet the surface in a curve having (I) a cusp (spinode) or (2) a pair of double points; in each case there is a singly infinite system of such singular tangent planes, and the locus of the points of contact is the curve, the envelope of the tangent planes the torso.
Geodetics on Surfaces of Revolution.In all such the geodetics are the curves given by the equation r sin 4,=const, r being the perpendicular on the axis of revolution, 4~ the angle at which the curve crosses the meridian.

 Surface Warfare Badge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Surface Warfare Badge is a military badge of the United States Navy which is issued to those Naval personnel who are trained and qualified to perform duties aboard United States surface warships.
The Surface Warfare Badge was first proposed in 1972 and, by 1980, several classes of the Surface Warfare Badge had been approved for issuance.
The Staff Surface Warfare Badges are most often granted to staff personnel permanently assigned to afloat naval commands, such as the medical department onboard an aircraft carrier.

 Surface Tension
Surface tension is typically measured in dynes/cm, the force in dynes required to break a film of length 1 cm.

 Surface Tension
Surface tension is a measurement of the cohesive energy present at an interface.
The measurement of surface and interfacial tension as performed by a tensiometer is based on force measurements of the interaction of a probe with the surface of interface of two fluids.
As the surface is brought into contact with the probe your Sigma 70 will notice this event by the change in forces it experiences.

 surface
Surface, considered within the fine arts, and most emphatically in painting, is that part of the artwork most often denied in illusory art--it is that part of the painting that we see through, to get at subject matter, narration and figuration.
The surface of the artwork is a critical point, then, in modernist art, as painting moves away from the hegemony of illusion and perspective that dominated painting from the Renaissance into the modern period.
Surface reasserts itself in 19th century painting, after its long suppression during the reign of naturalism, first visible in landscape paintings, such as those of the Barbizon School, where the transparent, slick, "licked" surfaces of the academy give way to richly textured impastos, apparent in painters such as Turner and Corot.

 SURFACE
The composition of a surface assemblage can be defined in two ways, (1) implicitly, by specifying that the surface assemblage is in equilibrium with a solution of fixed composition or (2) explicitly, by defining the amounts of the surfaces in their neutral form (for example, SurfbOH).
In contrast, during a reaction calculation, when a surface assemblage (defined as in example 1 or example 2 of this section) is placed in contact with a solution with which it is not in equilibrium, both the surface composition and the solution composition will adjust to reach a new equilibrium.
In reality, the charged surface plus the diffuse layer surrounding it would be electrically neutral and both should be removed when the surface is removed from solution.

 SURFACE
T = 1 gives a harmonic surface (no maxima or minima are possible except at control data points).
Tension may be used in the interior solution (above equation, where it suppresses spurious oscillations) and in the boundary conditions (where it tends to flatten the solution approaching the edges).
surface will complain when more than one data point is found for any node and suggest that you run blockmean, blockmedian, or blockmode first.

On the Earth, as crustal plates move over subsurface chambers of molten rock the lava tends to come to the surface in a line of places, producing strings of volcanoes (for example, volcanic island chains like the Hawaiian Islands).
The atmosphere of Mars is thin (about 1/200 of the pressure of the Earth's atmosphere), but this atmosphere supports high velocity seasonal winds that are correlated with solar heating of the surface and that produce duststorms that lead to a lot of surface erosion.
