The dragging effects of landmass
This tri-core vortex formation that has a meandering shape boundary as observed in the satellite image below is the Arctic polar vortex. Atmospheric air molecules are bonded in intermolecular cohesion, therefore when an Arctic polar vortex is generated, all the atmospheric layers at the North Pole driven by a rotation force would spin in unison. At the North Pole, when a cyclonic wind current in its path is met with blocking mountain ranges, it is dragged and thus its overall intensity would be weaken.
Although the altitude of stratosphere is from 10 kilometers to 50 kilometers, the higher density troposphere air mass at the bottom blocked by mountain ranges acts as a brake, dragging the air at stratosphere from spinning with full strength. This would absolutely reduce the intensity of the Arctic polar vortex at the North Pole, as the result the vortex column could not be formed like the Antarctica polar votex on the opposite side of the Earth that is relatively free of blockage.
Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses based on the unheard-of UVS model, are bounded to have shortcomings, loose ends, and errors. Many details and assumptions of its propositions established in the conceptual frameworks of UVS, have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or proven. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the topics presented in the UVS worldview, and any term or statement if offensive in any manner or whatsoever is most regretted. Links to other sites do not imply endorsement of their contents; apply appropriate discretion whenever necessary. Inevitably for whatsoever reasons, some viewing devices at times could experience data corruption for text, disorganized content layouts, missing images, failed animations, and some external links might have had ceased to exist. The presentations of the web pages are not friendly to small mobile devices, it is therefore recommended to accessed and view the UVS contents with a system device that has a larger screen, such as personal computer, android tablet, or iPad. For the best experience to explore UVS, it is better to use a MS Windows based PC or device using Internet Explorer or Firefox installed with Java that works for its interactive applets. (Such as Java Applet of Moiré pattern, JPL Small-Body Database Browser, and Planet Finder.)
