The UVS inductive resolution on atmospheric polar vortex

Based on the UVS model, a polar vortex is a nested atmospheric free vortex manifested on its polar axis with the effects of precession.
.

In the UVS worldview, a polar free vortex manifested in the viscous matter medium of a vortically suspended celestial spheroid, is impelled by a larger vortical system that underlies the entire Solar System.

See the UVS subtopics on "The orbits of natural satellites" that elucidates on how Earth is vortically impelled to move in helica path through space, and "Heliosphere" that elaborates on how the Sun is impelled by its spheroidal unisonal vortex that encapsulates it.

From the perspective with North Pole is at the top, it can be visualised that Earth rotates in counter-clockwise direction, and its revolving path around the Sun is also in counter-clockwise direction. As a matter of fact, Earth is a suspended spheroid with nested layers of viscous matter that primarily wobbles on these two axes when spinning, and the subtle spinning movements of Earth in its rotation on a revolving path have persistent fictitious forces manifested with its torque-induced precession effect.

And with conservation of angular momentum coulping in a differential manner, the torque-induced precession that have exerted on the mass center of the wobbling Earth, is conserved as a torque-free precession to resonate in the nested layers of viscous matter.

The atmosphere is flatter and thinner at the poles, is bulged and thicker at the equator, this oblate spheroidal shape is as a result of centrifugal force from Earth rotation on this axis. This rotation axis is the main axis of unisonal vortex mechanism for the polar vortex pair.



The main axis of unisonal vortex mechanism of a polar vortex of the Earth is on its rotational axis, and secondary axis is on revolution axis that was tilted at an angle of 23.5° from the rotating axis.

Do a thought experiment as illustrated above, imagine the Earth's surface of northern hemisphere is being flattened, in a manner maintaining the distance between the surface of Earth and the surface of atmosphere. From this perspective referencing to the flattened surface of Earth, we can conceptually visualize that the atmosphere has a parabolic shape structure, explicitly, this is a forced vortex with a center of equilibrium at a geological pole; this is a forced vortex (See vortex definitions).

On the atmospheric surface of a conceptually flattened Earth, the two geological poles at highest latitudes in geometric vector are the two points with lowest potential energy, and on the equator plane at zero latitude, the surface of the atmosphere is geometrically on a rim of the forced vortex with highest potential energy; this is a paradoxical effect caused cognitive paradox that is rendered in a delusory inverse manner.

The apparently convex structure of a nested atmosphere in a hemisphere, is actually a concave structure.

With this delusional observation elucidated, the cognitive paradox could thus be meticulously resolved, and this revealed the underlying mechanism that manifest a polar vortex.

The fact that the apparently convex atmospheric surface around the polar axis is actually a concave atmospheric surface that are impelled to rotate with the two-axis spin of the Earth, is a qualitative proof for polar vortex is manifested with the precession effect of the Earth.

Note: Ever since this cognitive paradox was resolved on 5th May 2007, the author in its awakening had first experienced an explosion of revolutionary discoveries.

UVS predicates that a polar vortex is a nested atmospheric free vortex manifested on the polar axis with the precession effect of the Earth.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of polar vortex as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observations that render its misconceptions, mysteries, and anomalies. Thus, its cognitive paradoxes could be meticulously resolved, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual frameworks of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to establish their qualitative predictions with abductive reasoning.

See the UVS topics on "The UVS' philosophy of science" and "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborate on the methodology for the evaluations of natural phenomena.

From the UVS perspective, this is the causality for the mysterious mechanism on how cyclones and sunspots are drawn towards their geological poles by centripetal force manifested on a surface with potential gradient. Ironically, the Earth has to be conceptually flattened to visualize its delusively inversed illusion for solving the mystery. The lower latitude atmospheric vortex moving towards the polar center, is in a way like a spinning top moving down a slope on a tilted and rotating platform. The inertial force is caused by a relative potential difference in a geometric gravity field acting on a parabolic structured atmospheric surface.

This relative potential difference in the spheroidal pushed-in gravitational field of the Earth, would generate a net inertial force on the lower latitude atmospheric vortex (such as cyclone) with consolidated air mass, and pushes the vortex from a relatively higher potential region in the visually obscured parabolic shaped atmospheric structure, to a relative lower potential region at the geological pole. This effect causes tropical cyclone to be drawn toward a center of equilibrium at the polar region; it is not a directly applied force that pushes the atmospheric vortex toward its polar region.

UVS predicates that a lower latitude atmospheric vortex is drawn towards its polar region by its polar forced vortex with a potentially concaved surface manifested on the atmospheric layer.

The forced vortex formed in nested layers of viscous matter on Earth driven by centrifugal force that is caused by rotation of Earth in a differential rotation, would rotate in clockwise direction at northern hemisphere on a reference frame fixed with the rotating Earth viewing it from the top of North Pole, and rotates in counter-clockwise direction at souther hemisphere in a reference frame viewing it from the top of South Pole. On an external reference frame observed from outside of Earth, the force vortex would appear to be cyclonically rotating in the same direction with the rotation of Earth that drags in a lagging manner.

The revolving Earth has a centrifugal force exerted from its revolving axis, its tangential forces acted on different latitude in the primary forced vortex on on its polar axis, would result a persistent differential force that drives this primary forced vortex from the surface in the nested layers of viscous matter medium. This revolving axis is the secondary axis of a unisonal vortex mechanism for a polar vortex. Earth revolves around the Sun in orbit on a revolving axis is tilted at an angle of 23.5° from the rotating axis, and this subjects polar vortex to seasonal variations.

The conceptualized parabolic shape atmosphere on either hemisphere held by gravity is also subjected to the tangential force of a centrifugal force acting from this secondary axis on Earth's revolving axis tilted at an angle from the rotating axis. The revolving movement of Earth has a angular momentum interacting in the atmospheric mass in the path of its movement. This angular momentum in the nested layers of viscous matter medium is weakest at the side of Earth nearer to Sun, and strongest at the far side from Sun.

The result is a net angular momentum in the viscous matter medium that moves horizontally on the surface of the forced vortex toward the east, and manifest as a differential force that drives the forced vortex at far side from the Sun in the direction of the rotation of Earth.

This net angular momentum interacts with the spheroidal pushed-in gravitational field of Earth and regresses in the forced vortex, and thus manifested in the atmospheric medium as centripetal force that push viscous matter with spiral motion in a center seeking manner; this mechanism transforms the forced vortex into a dominant free vortex.

This net horizontal westerly force interacts in a spheroidal pushed-in gravitational field of Earth on the surface of the parabolic structured atmosphere, will cause air mass at northern hemisphere to cyclonically spin in counter clockwise direction with spiral motion in a center seeking manner. In a stronger torque-induced precession that occurs seasonally, when cohesion force of air molecules in the nested atmospheric layers of viscous matter are overcome by centrifugal force in a spinning action, at the center of equilibrium, a vortex eye would open. And a vortical chain reaction will then occur to form the vortex column until formation of the cyclonic free vortex is peaked. These are the primary force dynamics of unisonal vortex mechanism that forms a polar vortex.

At the night side of the Earth during winter solstice , the axial tilt of the Earth is inclinced at an angle farthermost from the Sun. Thus, the atmospheric pushed-in momentum from the effect of the secondary axis spin that impels the atmospheric polar forced vortex at the far side of the Sun, would be at its most.

In summary, these are the primary forces of unisonal vortex mechanism that forms a cyclonic atmospheric polar vortex on the Earth with its precession effect:

  • Centrifugal force as a result of Earth's rotation develops on the main axis of unisonal vortex mechanism, formed a primary forced vortex on an atmospheric surface at a polar region.
  • Tangential force of another centrifugal force from Earth's revolving on a secondary axis, exerts a net westerly differential force in the atmosphere to externally drive the primary forced vortex.
  • The spheroidal pushed-in gravitational field of Earth interacts with this differential force, develops as a vortical core-seeking force to cause air mass to spiral on the surface of the primary forced vortex in a downward center seeking manner, and in its chain reaction it thus transforms the atmospheric forced vortex into a dual-core cyclonic free vortex at a geological pole.
Earth revolves around the Sun with its rotational axis in an axis tilt renders the dual-axis spin.


I have often made the hypothesis that ultimately physics will not require a mathematical statement,
that in the end the machinery will be revealed and the laws will turn out to be simple.

The atmospheric effects of polar vortex

For the UVS perspective, the cold core phenomenon of polar vortex from mid to top section of stratosphere is as a result of sunken mesosphere has filled the void in the vortex column.

And the polar climate is largely as a result of a polar vortex has vortically dispersed troposphere in the nested vortex column, rendered by the freezing tropopause is being lowered to around the ground level.

UVS predicates that polar climate is significantly caused by vortically dispersed atmospheric layers in the vortex column of a polar vortex.

For the UVS perspective, the polar vortex of stratosphere with its vortex column manifested within the boundary of the subtropical jet stream, is the causality for the subtropical climate.

UVS predicates subtropical climate is primarily caused by the polar vortex of stratosphere with its vortex column manifested within the boundary of the subtropical jet stream.

On a summer's day in southern hemisphere rendered by the axis tilt of a perihelion Earth with a perigee new moon, at regions near the equator with the thickest atmospheric layers pushed out by the aligned Sun-Moon tidal forces, and by the subtropical jet steam of a polar vortex that opens more toward the equator to push out the atmosphere, thus maximizing its greenhouse effect with the atmospheric layers are denser and thicker at nearer the equator, could explain why those land regions are the warmest places on Earth.

With lesser dragging effect of landmass at the South Pole, the Antarctica polar vortex would thus be more intensified than the Arctic polar vortex for lowering and displacing the troposphere with freezing tropopause layer in its vortex column. Therefore, on a winter's night rendered by the axis tilt of an aphelion Earth, with the high altitude continent of the Antarctica, the polar vortex is most intensified by a perigee full moon during the lunar opposition that causes its vortex column in the troposphere to widely open, could explain why Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth.

See the UVS subtopics on "Jet streams" that elaborates on how the atmospheric effects of polar vortex manifest jet streams, "The causality of subtropical desert" that elaborates on a vortical mechanism that rules subtropical deserts, and "Other vortical phenomena of the Sun" that elucidates on how the extreme climates of Earth can be caused by a vortical mechanism governing the Solar System.

From the UVS perspective, a polar vortex column of troposphere widened by precession effect, can cause polar climate to extend nearer to the equator.

See an externally linked report on "U.S. Midwest, Northeast hit by bitter cold temperatures" that reported on how a widened polar vortex of North Pole were causing cold climate further South.

From the UVS perspective, if the Solar System alignment has focused precession effects in a winter night at the northern hemisphere during the perihelion of Earth with a new moon also aligned, the combined tidal forces of Sun and Moon can significantly decrease the altitude of the atmospheric layers at focal point. And with the lowered altitude, the atmosphere with reduced air mass and volume drawn away by focused tidal forces, a torque-free precession in a shallower and less denser atmosphere could easily form a polar vortex with larger diameter vortex column.

UVS predicates polar vortex that can be significantly affected by a focused torque-induced precession of the Solar System alignment effect.

Evident from a polar vortex study by empirical observation suggests that the North Pole Arctic polar vortex of stratosphere is a tri-core polar vortex embedded to Earth's rotation, these could be rendered by the precession effects of Sun, Earth and Moon. And the dragging effects of landmass would have caused its meandering shape boundary and reduces it intensity, it therefore does not have a prominent opened-through vortex column.

UVS predicates that the Arctic polar vortex is embedded to Earth's rotation by the dragging effects of landmass.

The South Pole polar vortex of stratosphere at the Antarctica as observed has an elongated dual-core vortex eye, evidently, this free vortex wobbles in synchronization with the Earth-Moon precession cycles.

UVS predicates that Antarctica Polar Vortex wobbles in synchronization with the Earth-Moon precession cycle.

Indubitably, Moon orbiting around Earth can perturb the polar vortex, thus creating a gyroscopic retrograde motion that wobbles the Earth in a lunar cycle. A web site by NASA shows an animation of the Antarctica Ozone Hole monitored by a satellite over a two months period, is a scientific evidence for the tidal force from Moon, interacts with the atmospheric polar vortex of the Earth.

The fact that Antarctica polar vortex is subjected to its Earth-Moon precession cycles as empirically observed, is a qualitative proof that the motion of the Moon perturbs the Antarctica polar vortex.

See the UVS topic on "Ozone hole" that demonstrated the gyroscopic retrograde motion of a Earth-Moon precession effect.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses based on a generally unheard-of UVS model, bound to have shortcomings, loose ends, and 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 or from whatsoever perspectives, is most regretted.
