Without an effervescence,
Like that of salts with lemon juice,
Which does not yet like that produce
A friendly coalescence.

Of ripe roses gone to waste,
And a dreamy sense of sun- and moon- and star-light interlaced.
"A Wraith Of Summertime" by James Whitcomb Riley

And her words were all peculiar, like the fairy's who 'spoke pearls;'
And her tone was ever sweetest midst the cadences of girls.

In science:

As a result the effervescent heating rate is effectively cut off at the periphery of the cluster.
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
Leff (t) denotes the total ‘effervescent’ luminosity at time t.
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
Fig. 1 shows the self-regulated luminosity of the effervescent heating as a function of time for various values of the efficiency, ǫ.
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
The solid lines in Figs. 1 and 3 both correspond to the same efficiency of 3 × 10−3 and it is evident that the presence of thermal conduction leads to decrease of the accretion rates and, consequently, also of the effervescent luminosities.
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
In any case, for a wide range of efficiencies we obtain cluster models that remain stable over long times and require ’effervescent’ luminosities of not more than ∼ 1044 erg s−1 .
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
The solid line shows the radial cooling profile, while the double-dashed line shows the effervescent heating rate.
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
It is evident from the left panel that for the cluster with a mass of 1014 M⊙ the radiative cooling is almost exactly balanced by the effervescent heating while conduction has very little effect on the energy budget.
Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
For the cluster with M = 4 × 1014 M⊙ conduction is already more important than effervescent heating for most regions within the cluster.

Feedback in AGN heating of galaxy clusters
The model of AGN heating we adopt here is that of ‘effervescent heating’ proposed by (Begelman 2001), simulated in RB02, and also used in the global stability model of GOR08.
Could AGN Outbursts Transform Cool Core Clusters?
Note that a minimum amount of thermal conduction is usually required in our calculations, since AGN “effervescent heating” tends to be excessively centrally concentrated: the very central regions of the cluster are overheated, while outer regions develop a cooling catastrophe.
Could AGN Outbursts Transform Cool Core Clusters?
Some of this feedback may be observable in radio galaxies, as episodic activity that he argued is buoyancy-driven, with the energy distributed by effervescent heating.
