The UVS visual inductive resolution on polar aurora

Based on the UVS model, a polar aurora is manifested by an intensified nested polar vortex formed in the thermosphere[w].

Evidently, the polar aurorae formed on the Earth had demonstrated the shapes of vortical structures, such as had manifested as a circular vortex eye structure, and also had formed as a cascading vortical structure.

From the UVS perspective, when the vortical motion of a nested polar vortex formed in the thermosphere is intensified, with the charged particles vortically coalesced inside the cascaded vortex column coupled by the magnetic fields of its magnetosphere[w], it could manifest the phenomenon of polar aurora.

The cognitive paradox that renders polar aurora as a mysterious phenomenon, was thus resolved with its underlying vortical structure and mechanism explicated.

The UVS research predicates a polar aurora is induced to manifest by its intensified nested atmospheric polar vortex.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying vortical structure and mechanism of aurora as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observation that has been rendering it as a mysterious phenomenon. Thus, its cognitive paradox was simply dispersed, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual framework of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to predicate by abductive reasoning.

See the UVS topic on "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborates on its visual grounded theory for the evaluations of natural phenomena.

From the UVS perspective, although a direct solar flare[w] would contribute to the intensity of the polar vortex pair on the Earth by perturbing with its torque-induced precession[w], the glows of polar aurorae glow are not merely caused by the charged particles from the solar flare.

Evidently, solar flares and solar winds eject charged particles as streams of electrons and protons, while the aurorae on Earth are mainly rendered by the glows of ionized oxygen[w]. The two luminous colors of excited atomic oxygen[w] on most polar aurorae, are rendered by the ionized oxygen in the greenish glow at a wavelength of 557.7 nm, and the dark-red glow at a wavelength of 630.0 nm.

An illustration for solar wind directed at the Earth, is being repelled by its magnetosphere.

These suggests the vortical interactions of an underlying nested polar vortex when intensified, is the primary cause for the plasma glow of a polar aurora.

The demarcation of the aurora australis[w] suggest this polar aurora was formed by the manifested nested atmospheric nested polar vortex at the South Pole[w]. And it apparently was formed inside a vortically sunken thermosphere in its vortically formed vortex column.

Heuristically, its intensified magnetohydrodynamic[w] (MHD) dynamo effect[m] would result the rarefied atmospheric particles in the vortex column to be electrically charged, ionized, and thus rendered as plasma glowing inside the polar vortex.

Note: A MHD dynamo has three requirements - a conducting viscous matter, rotation, and convection.

In all possibilities, the phenomena of large electric currents and magnetic storm could largely be caused by the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) dynamo effect of a spinning vortex wall that electrically charges atomic particles in the atmosphere. The vortical effects could generate electric currents that thus energizes atoms to become ionized.

The UVS research predicates the electromagnetic storm in the presence of an aurora is caused by the intensified vortical effect of its underlying atmospheric vortex.

The polar aurora with its underlying vortical structure and mechanism explicated, and as can be empirically observed to be manifested by its nested polar vortex in the thermosphere, is the qualitative proof that a polar aurora is induced to manifest by a vortically intensified nested polar vortex in its cascaded vortex column.

From the UVS perspective, the observed polar aurorae of Jupiter and Saturn were caused by the dynamo effect of their polar vortices; solar flares could not have much effects at such a distant. The plasma glows were rendered by excited hydrogen atoms vortically coalesced in their nested polar vortex pairs, and thus would generate the electric glow discharge[w] symmetrically in the polar regions of these gas giants.

See the UVS topics on "Polar aurorae of gas giants" that elaborates on how polar aurorae are induced and demarcated by their underlying plasmatic polar vortex pair, "The nested polar vortex pair" that elaborates on how an atmospheric polar vortex is formed and impelled,"Comet" that elaborates on how cometary outbursts could be rendered by atmospheric vortical motions, and "The formation of stars and galaxies" that elaborates on numerous mysterious glowing vortical phenomena.

By visualizing the underlying structures and mechanisms, it intuitively reveals
the actualities of the mysteriously rendered natural phenomena.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses grounded on a generally unheard-of UVS model, bound to have shortcomings, such as loose ends, errors, and omissions errors. Many details and assumptions in its propositions have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or verified. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the UVS topics presented in the UVS worldview, so if any term or statement is offensive in any manner from whatsoever perspectives, is most regretted.

Viewing tips: Despite the presentations of the UVS web pages has went through much accommodation for their viewings on smart phones, they are still not entirely friendly to these mobile devices. For the best experiences, use a MS Windows based PC or computer system with Java enabled browser for running its interactive applets.
