Severe Space Weather Events--Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts

The antagonistic results of utmost area climate on sleek technology--power grid outages, high-frequency conversation blackouts, spacecraft anomalies--are renowned and good documented, and the actual techniques underlying area climate also are as a rule good understood. much less good documented and understood, in spite of the fact that, are the capability fiscal and societal affects of the disruption of severe technological structures by means of serious area climate.

Climate Dynamics of the Tropics

The 1st version of my booklet "Climate and flow of the Tropics" was once kind of brand new to the center of 1985. In a moment printing in 1988 it was once attainable to accomplish a couple of literature references and to right a few misprints. although, full of life study has taken position over the last 5 years in numerous parts of tropical weather dynamics, specially within the atmosphere-ocean mechanisms of weather anomalies, weather prediction, ocean flow, and paleoclimates.

The Nature of Ball Lightning

In 1837 a accomplished dialogue of lightning seemed within the Annual of the French Bureau des Longitudes with a piece on ball lightning which supplied for the 1st time a on hand resource within the clinical literature of the elemental houses of this curious ordinary phenomenon. the writer, Francois Arago, used to be the dominant effect within the French Academy of Sciences within the 19th century, having join that august physique on the age of twenty-three.

24c). This frontogenesis maximum strengthens further and expands northeastward to the eastern Great Lakes by 0000 UTC 10 December (Fig. 24d). The expansion and strengthening of the 500-hPa frontogenesis maximum in the 24 h ending 0000 UTC 10 December is driven almost exclusively by horizontal confluence (not shown). The twisting term contribution to frontogenesis is weakly negative in response to large-scale ascent maximizing along the warm side of the main baroclinic zone (not shown). Comparison of Figs.

The now well-defined region of tropopause folding at 0000 UTe 10 December is concentrated at the leading edge of an area of strengthening 500-hPa frontogenesis that is dominated by horizontal confluence (not shown) (Fig. 24d). Likewise, tropopause folding lies in the entrance region of the 300-hPa jet (Figs. 25d). A computation of total foldogenesis from (3) and the contributions to foldogenesis from horizontal confluence from (4) and from differential vertical motion from (5) for 1200 UTC 9 December and 0000 UTC 10 December are shown in Fig.
