The temperature difference on the upper and lower surfaces of the albatross wing is about ten degrees

Engineers at New Mexico State University explained the different color of the upper and lower sides of the wing in albatrosses. According to the researchers' calculations, during flight, the upper black side of the wings of these birds is about 10 degrees warmer than the lower white surface. Because of this, the temperature of the boundary layer on the surface of the wing increases, and the frictional force decreases, allowing albatrosses to fatigue less and stay in the air longer.
