Due to rising sea levels, smaller storms could produce significant flooding Almost a year after Hurricane Sandy, parts of New York and New Jersey are still recovering from billions of dollars in flood damage. Tufts University geologist Andrew Kemp sees the possibility of damage from storms smaller than Sandy in the future. "Rising sea levels exacerbate flooding," says Kemp. "As sea level rises, smaller and weaker storms will cause flood damage." An assistant professor in Tufts'...

[ Watch The Video: Radiative Instability of a Geophysical Vortex ] American Institute of Physics French researchers develop sophisticated mathematical model to study the behavior of earthly vortices, like hurricanes and ocean currents What do smoke rings, tornadoes and the Great Red Spot of Jupiter have in common? They are all examples of vortices, regions within a fluid (liquid, gas or plasma) where the flow spins around an imaginary straight or curved axis. Understanding how...

Coastal Upwelling- this is defined as the moving of water from the deeper oceans upwards to the surface of the ocean very commonly found along our cold ocean currents, which are found along the West Coast of the United States and off the Peru coast. Coastal Sinking- this is defined as the warm waters moving in from the east and hitting the coastline and slowly filtering down towards the deeper ocean waters very slowly. This feature is common in our warm ocean currents such as the United...

Tropical Storm Debbie on a surface chart. It is noted that just off the coast of Northern Florida a 999 surface pressure is found indicating to a meteorologist that an area of Lower pressure is arriving. In this case it’s Tropical Storm Debbie. The red lines indicate lines of equal pressure. Meteorologists label them in 4mb increments. So looking at the map it’s noted that there is a 08/04/00/96 line present in the photo highlighted with red. Another feature is that the more of these...

Difference Between Onshore And Offshore Flow
2012-07-16 11:34:51

Onshore flow describes the movement of any weather feature moving towards the shore. The most common weather features that are affiliated with onshore flow are Hurricanes and the daily sea breeze. What happens with a hurricane is the Northeast side of the storm will produce winds out of the Southeast to South which will force the ocean water (Storm Surge) towards the coast along with all the extensive precipitation shields. Another feature is known as the Sea breeze. The sea breeze happens...
