Cyclone Giovanna crossed over the island of Madagascar leaving flooding and damages in its wake and has now entered the Mozambique Channel. NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image that showed a ragged eye still exists, and the storm is regaining strength in the warm Channel waters. Once Giovanna traversed the island nation of Madagascar and entered the Mozambique Channel, the body of water between Madagascar and Mozambique on the African mainland, NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead and...

Image 1 - Pollution To Blame For Rising Intensity Of Arabian Sea Cyclones
2011-11-03 05:35:42

A recent increase in the intensity of Arabian Sea cyclones may be the result of increasing air pollution over the Indian sub-continent, according to a new multi-institutional study. Traditionally, prevailing wind shear patterns prohibit cyclones in the Arabian Sea from becoming major storms.  However, the study suggests that weakening winds have enabled the formation of stronger cyclones in recent years -- including storms in 2007 and 2010 that were the first recorded storms to enter...

Given the UK's obsession with the weather, it would seem obvious that the basic understanding of how low pressure systems evolve has been known for a long time. Instead, some of the biggest storms in the UK's history, such as the Great Storm of October 1987, did not fit this basic understanding. With groundbreaking research, Dr David Schultz, from The University of Manchester believes the way we learn about the weather is wrong and has been wrong for 90 years. Writing in the journal Bulletin...

System 98A has been bringing rains, gusty winds and churning up the surf along the Arabian Seacoast of west-central India for days, and NASA satellite imagery confirms that it is getting organized now that it has moved into open waters. NASA's Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument onboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image on June 8 at 08:47 UTC (4:47 a.m. EDT) of the hundreds of thunderstorms that make up the low pressure area called System 98A. The low pressure area has now...

It's not unusual for NASA satellites to attend the birth of tropical cyclones, and NASA's Aqua satellite was there when Tropical Cyclone Bune was born early Thursday in the South Pacific Ocean. Bune developed from System 99P, a low pressure area that was about 200 miles southeast of Suva, Fiji yesterday, March 23. The low intensified into tropical depression 19P and yesterday strengthened further into Tropical Storm Bune. A Tropical Cyclone Alert was in force for Lau, Lomaiviti and nearby...

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...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
