The authors of an Interface paper explain how their study applies large-scale computations to chart how the airflow evolves during a sniff, illustrating how the air we breathe moves inside our airways when we inhale. They explain how their results help our understanding of nasal physiology and could be helpful in treating medical conditions (Courtesy of Bates, Cetto, Doorly, Imperial College)
