South African Researchers Debunk Two Climate Change Myths
2014-02-25 14:45:12

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from South African researchers has debunked the notion that there are more tropical cyclones taking place due to global warming – at least in the Southern Indian Ocean. Jennifer Fitchett, a PhD student at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, said better meteorology has probably fueled the idea of climate change developing more and more storms. “From 1940, there was a huge increase in observations because of...

Cyclone Watch Issued In Australia As NASA Sees System 99P Developing
2014-01-29 09:40:43

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the tropical low pressure area designated as System 99P and infrared data shows that the low is getting organized. Meanwhile, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology posted a Cyclone Watch for coastal areas from Port Douglas to Proserpine, Queensland that are expected to be affected by the storm. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over System 99P the Southern Pacific Ocean on January 28 at 14:47 UTC/9:47 a.m. EST and saw that some of the thunderstorms had...

The intensity of tropical cyclones hitting East Asia has significantly increased over the past 30 years, according to a new study published today. The coastlines of China, Korea and Japan in particular have experienced increasingly stronger cyclones, which the researchers have attributed to increasing sea surface temperatures and a change in atmospheric circulation patterns over the coastal seas. According to the study, the changes in sea surface temperature and wind flows meant that...

Soap Bubbles Used To Predict Cyclone Intensity
2014-01-08 08:38:25

Laboratoire Ondes et Matière d'Aquitaine Could soap bubbles be used to predict the strength of hurricanes and typhoons? However unexpected it may sound, this question prompted physicists at the Laboratoire Ondes et Matière d'Aquitaine (CNRS/université de Bordeaux) to perform a highly novel experiment: they used soap bubbles to model atmospheric flow. A detailed study of the rotation rates of the bubble vortices enabled the scientists to obtain a relationship that accurately describes...

Arctic Cyclones 40 Percent More Active Than Previously Believed
2013-12-12 08:58:25

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Approximately 1,900 Arctic cyclones occurred between 2000 and 2010 – 40 percent more than previously thought, according to research presented Thursday at the 2013 fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, California. The discovery that these storms are more common than previously believed could be important to those living anywhere in the region north of 55 degrees latitude, including the northern parts of...

Polar Front Jet on the Water Vapor Image
2012-07-10 17:35:31

Water vapor satellite is used to identify moisture in the atmosphere. We can also use it to help us identify the Polar front Jetstream. The Jetstream is outlined in the above image with a red line. As you can see it travels through an area of black or what we refer to as dry air. The reason the polar front jet travels through dry air is that the winds associated with this jet can exceed 150mph which keeps the air moving too fast to develop moisture at high levels. The polar front jet...

Tropical systems are weather features that form in the tropics and can become very intense areas of low pressure that impact many coastal regions throughout the world. They usually form between 5 and 15 latitude. This is because a tropical system is a vertical extension in the atmosphere of a large thunderstorm development. In order for these thunderstorms to move they need something in the upper levels to help them move. That is where the spinning of the earth comes into play for them which...
