Tropical cyclone Barbara threatens Mexico

May 29, 2013. Off the coast of Mexico, in the eastern Pacific Ocean, was born a tropical cyclone. He was immediately given the name "Barbara".

According to the National Center for monitoring hurricanes, located in Miami, while "Barbara" is in place. Center of the cyclone is 233 kilometers to the southeast of the Mexican city of Salina Cruz. Wind speed at the center already is 64 km / h (18 m / sec).

Forecasters reported that "Barbara" is about to start its move to the coast of Mexico. According to the calculations of weather forecasters, the cyclone, moving north

Hurricane frequency depends on air purity

June 25, 2013. A group of researchers from the meteorological centers Hadley conducted studies on the relationships between the frequency and intensity of storms and air quality, and came to very interesting results. As the researchers found, the efforts of people to make the air cleaner does not always have a positive impact on the mitigation of hurricanes or to prevent their formation.

It has long been known that in the modern atmosphere is a certain amount of solid particles of a certain size, for example, waste aerosols from industrial facilities or home-types of human activity. It is these aerosols

The whole procession of hurricanes struck the north-west of the U.S. Natural Disasters

North-west coast of the U.S. have to endure attacks from a group of Pacific hurricanes. As the instrumentation, speed gale near Neyzl Ridge, Washington, reached 182.4 km / h At other sites in the same state and in Oregon was fixed wind speed of 161.6 km / h to 118.4 km / h

After breaking away from a destructive force in the coastal areas there were many fallen trees, poles with electric cables, normally home has structural damage. Some buildings were without roofs. In addition

Is it possible from tornadoes and hurricanes produce energy

Is it possible from tornadoes and hurricanes produce energy Facts

Tornadoes and hurricanes are one of the most terrifying forms of natural phenomena on the planet. But some scientists an idea, that their destructive power can be channeled and benefit from this significant benefit. Until, of course, there is no such device that could convert the energy of a hurricane or tornado in electricity, but the thought of developing it is about to materialize.

If we talk about the power of a tornado, the average amount of energy it produces in a certain point will be 200 times

Atlantic hurricane season comes to anti-record

September 6, 2013. Atlantic hurricane season of 2013, which initially predicted as active, has a chance to put the record by the absence of hurricanes in the semifinal in the middle of September. As of September 5, in an active season is seven tropical storms, but there is not a single hurricane.

In the history of the first most satellite observations began in the late hurricane "Gustav", collected by the hurricane September 11, 2002 off the coast of New England. In this whirlwind began his

This year's Atlantic hurricane season will be very active

May 28, 2013. Three days later, officially kicks off the season of tropical storms in the Atlantic. With a probability of 70% this year it will be active or very active, experts say NOAA.

During the season, from June 1 to November 30, there will be 13 to 20 storms, which will be assigned names. Of these, from 7 to 11 stages reach hurricane, including from 3 to 5 will be intense vortices hurricanes (winds 178 km / h or more). For comparison, the regular season is born 12 storms, including six hurricanes, including three intense.

Among the major oceanic

Near Krasnodar noise Hurricanes

On the ground near Krasnodar thundered loudly, "Hurricanes" — multiple rocket launchers. Since the fighting began firing in the large-scale exercises artillery of the North Caucasian Military Area.

Training division led to them almost a month, and now — The final check. Command evaluates how rapidly deploy military weapons and how exactly are fire. Volleys are rattle to the deepest night.

Teachings gunners held throughout the south, including in Dagestan, Chechnya, North Ossetia, as the Russian military bases in South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Armenia, reports NTV.

Team improved method for predicting hurricanes

Team improved method for predicting hurricanes Facts

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new method for forecasting hurricane activity, which is 15% more accurate than the previously used technology. Scientists believe that armed with the new method, and meteorological and other interested organizations will be able to make more accurate and detailed forecasts. This in turn will make the hurricane season is not so unexpected and dangerous.

Traditional models predicting seasonal hurricane activity is always the basis for taking classical statistical methods using historical data. But since the hurricanes have a huge number of determining

Season of tropical storms in the Atlantic will be more crowded

Season of tropical storms in the Atlantic will be more intense weather and climate

For the whole of July in the Atlantic Ocean was quite a small number of tropical storms. Total projected there should have been 12, five of which will become hurricanes and two hurricanes increased strength. However, the new data is added to the expected list of eight new tropical systems, four of which will become hurricanes. Of these four, under favorable conditions, severe storms to 3 hazard categories in August and September 2012, will develop two more.

At the moment, the temporal boundaries of

Inflow of fresh water twice intensifies hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones

Inflow of fresh water twice intensifies hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones Facts

After a decade of monitoring tropical cyclones, it was found that when the storms are moving through the ocean water mixed with fresh water from flowing into rivers, it does increase the intensity of hurricanes and typhoons. Let the probability that the storm will be held in the region of cluster of fresh water, is only 10-23%, but if it happens, the increase in the intensity of 50%.

The observed features can significantly improve the mechanism of forecasting hurricanes, depending on the coordinate origin of climatic
