It’s called the Bubble Curtain, a series of perforated pipes that use compressed air to bubble deep, cold ocean water up to the surface, cutting off a storm system’s supply of the warm water it needs to intensify into a hurricane.Oct 9, 2020
“The short answer is ‘no,'” said Hugh Willoughby, a professor and hurricane researcher at Florida International University’s department of earth and environment. “As far as I know, there’s no serious scientist doing this at all. It’s very unpromising.” That hasn’t stopped entrepreneurs and visionaries from trying.
Thunderstorms, warm ocean water and light wind are needed for a hurricane to form (A).
In hurricane season, ships would deploy large pipes with holes deep under water, where the water is colder, and then pump in air, which would push cold water bubbles up to the surface. As a storm passed over the cooler water, the change in temperature could prevent a more intense storm.
We know that hurricanes thrive off warm water and warm moist air. And we know that cooling down the water and air around the hurricane should stop this disaster. … So by our calculations, to surround a hurricane and freeze it, you would need over 32,000 metric tons (35,325 U.S. tons) of liquid nitrogen.
You can somewhat partly regard a typhoon as the convection between the warm and the cool air. Therefore as far as I can tell, the best way to destroy a typhoon is cooling down the water beneath or heating up the upper air.
Because it is the interaction of warm air and warm seawater that spawns these storms, they form over tropical oceans between about 5 and 20 degrees of latitude. At these latitudes, seawater is hot enough to give the storms strength and the rotation of the Earth makes them spin.
If there’s 125 trillion joules in the storm, and 3300 in a bullet, we’d need 125 TJ/3300 J = 3.79*1010 rounds to completely undo Irma. 109 is a billion, so that means 37.9 billion rounds.
A bomb cyclone is simply a storm that gets very strong very quickly. It drops at least 24 mb (a unit of pressure) in 24 hours. The lower the pressure, the stronger the storm.
The “Salter Sink”—which is essentially a large pump powered by waves—can stir up the ocean and push hot water from the ocean’s surface to depths where it can mix up with the colder water below. It is a large yellow ring that acts as an artificial beach, capturing water from waves.
A Category 5 has maximum sustained winds of at least 156 mph, according to this National Hurricane Center report from May 2021, and the effects can be devastating. “People, livestock, and pets are at very high risk of injury or death from flying or falling debris, even if indoors in manufactured homes or framed homes.
The World’s Safest Country: Qatar
With its sheltered position inside the Persian Gulf, Qatar is protected from tropical cyclones.
Hurricanes can form in the Caribbean or the Gulf of Mexico, but late in the hurricane season more of them form near the Cape Verde Islands of Africa. Why do hurricanes form off the coast of Africa?
A hurricane is a huge storm! It can be up to 600 miles across and have strong winds spiraling inward and upward at speeds of 75 to 200 mph. Each hurricane usually lasts for over a week, moving 10-20 miles per hour over the open ocean. Hurricanes gather heat and energy through contact with warm ocean waters.
There are six lists of hurricane names that recycle every six years. Elsa replaced Tropical Storm Erika who was retired in 2015 due to its historic flooding and casualties in the Caribbean island of Dominica. Erika is one of 4 ‘E’ names that have been retired.
NOAA’s National Hurricane Center does not control the naming of tropical storms. Instead, there is a strict procedure established by the World Meteorological Organization. For Atlantic hurricanes, there is a list of male and female names which are used on a six-year rotation.
