Condensation of water vapor in the gravitational field
Physical peculiarities of water vapor condensation under conditions of hydrostatic equilibrium are considered. The power of stationary dynamic air fluxes and the vertical temperature distribution
A Mathematical Model Governing Tornado Dynamics: An Exact Solution of a Generalized Model
Abstract We investigate in this paper the dynamics of tornadoes by considering that the real inflow radial velocity depends on both the radial and vertical coordinates. The formulation is based on
Comments on “Is Condensation-Induced Atmospheric Dynamics a New Theory of the Origin of the Winds?”
Here we respond to Jaramillo et al.’s recent critique of condensation-induced atmospheric dynamics (CIAD). We show that CIAD is consistent with Newton’s laws while Jaramillo et al.’s analysis is
Where do winds come from? A new theory on how water vapor condensation influences atmospheric pressure and dynamics
Phase transitions of atmospheric water play a ubiquitous role in the Earth's climate system, but their direct impact on atmospheric dynamics has escaped wide attention. Here we examine and advance a
Exploration of Characteristics Governing Dynamics of Whirlwinds: Application to Dust Devils
Abstract It is intended to model mathematically an ideal whirlwind which characterises this geo-physical phenomenon and eventually helps us decode the inherent dynamics. A dense cylindrical aerial
A review of convective and artificial vortices for power generation
Thermal energy transfer in the atmosphere occurs from a high temperature zone to a low one by means of convective vortices where mechanical energy is produced. There are two ways of driving vertical
Vegetation Impact on Atmospheric Moisture Transport Under Increasing Land-Ocean Temperature Contrasts
Destabilization of the water cycle threatens human lives and livelihoods. Meanwhile our understanding of whether and how changes in vegetation cover could trigger abrupt transitions in moisture
Calculations of Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Properties of Molecule-Cluster Mixtures of Oxygen
The number of gas molecules and the volume of the vessel are used as independent arguments in the equation of state. It allows one to use this description in difficult conditions when variability in
Revisiting forest impact on atmospheric water vapor transport and precipitation
Using a robust global precipitation database, we analyze coast-to-interior seasonal precipitation distributions over the world’s major forest regions. We find that the active functioning of boreal

Since its origins science has been on the forefront of man's struggle against a hostile environment. In the long run, with the discovery of electricity, internal combustion engine and inorganic


The Three-Dimensional Axisymmetric Wind Field Structure of the Spencer, South Dakota, 1998 Tornado
Abstract The three-dimensional axisymmetric wind field structure of the violent Spencer, South Dakota, 1998 tornado was analyzed using the ground-based velocity track display (GBVTD) method. Data
Diagnosed Three-Dimensional Axisymmetric Structure of the Mulhall Tornado on 3 May 1999
On 3 May 1999, an unusually large tornado that caused F4-level damage and killed several people was intercepted by the Doppler on Wheels (DOW) mobile radar near Mulhall, Oklahoma, from a range of 4
Finescale Single- and Dual-Doppler Analysis of Tornado Intensification, Maintenance, and Dissipation in the Orleans, Nebraska, Supercell
Abstract Finescale single- and dual-Doppler observations are used to diagnose the three-dimensional structure of the wind field surrounding a tornado that occurred near the town of Orleans, Nebraska,
Infrared Thermal Imagery of Cloud Base in Tornadic Supercells
Abstract During the spring seasons of 2003 and 2004, an infrared thermal camera was deployed in and around supercell thunderstorms in an attempt to retrieve the temperature at the cloud base of a
Close Proximity Soundings within Supercell Environments Obtained from the Rapid Update Cycle
A sample of 413 soundings in close proximity to tornadic and nontornadic supercells is examined. The soundings were obtained from hourly analyses generated by the 40-km Rapid Update Cycle-2 (RUC-2)
The Tornadoes of 3 May 1999: Event Verification in Central Oklahoma and Related Issues
Abstract The tornado events of 3 May 1999 within the county warning area of the Norman, Oklahoma, office of the National Weather Service are reviewed, emphasizing the challenges associated with
