Universal Vortical Singularity enlightenment on tropical cyclone (Hurricane)

Based on the UVS model, a tropical cyclone is induced in a huge clear air vortex with vortically consolidated clouds.

UVS predicates that tropical cyclone is impelled by a lower latitude huge atmospheric clear air vortex.

What could be optically observed, is merely the silhouette of its undulating clear air atmospheric vortex that has paradoxically manifested on the surface of the lower cloud level.

From the UVS perspective, an external perturbation from focused precession effect of alignments of aligned Solar System objects, can intensify the tropical depression with its added torque-induced precession to impel the atmospheric free vortex.

See UVS topics on "A tri-typhoon cluster event and its arrangement of cross-aligned Solar System objects", Tropical Cyclones and Storms in Northern Hemisphere for Year 2005 and their Solar System alignments, and "A typical arrangement of Solar System objects that could trigger a terrestrial free vortex".

The induced cloud with vortical effect that collects as a swirl of clouds that resembles a vortex as observed, is merely the effects of its invisible clear air vortex manifested on the lower cloud level; it is merely a cognitive paradox that renders tropical cyclone as a mysterious phenomenon.

The cognitive paradox that renders tropical cyclone as a mysterious phenomenon, was thus meticulously resolved with its underlying structure and mechanism illustrated.

The fact that tropical cyclone is undulated by its free vortex, as can be empirically observed, is the qualitative proof that tropical cyclones are induced by their atmospheric free vortex.

The grounds for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of a tropical cyclone as illustrated by its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observations that render its misconceptions, mysteries, and anomalies. Thus, its cognitive paradox 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 on their empirical evidence to establish their qualitative predictions with abductive reasoning.

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

The tropical depression moving along its path are subjected to changing circumstances in changing environment, such as combined gravity influence from focused precession effects from aligned and cross-aligned Solar System objects. When the atomospheric vortex has moved to a lowered altitude atmosphere region at higher latitude, and after having gained driving power by entering into the path of a stronger jet stream, or has triggered a thermal-mechanics effect with warmer sea water as thermal reservoir, the blind vortex could be intensified. This could transform the tropical depression to become a tropical storm, and eventually it might be further intensified to become a tropical cyclone of different intensity at different stages.

In the UVS worldview, tropical cyclone, or hurricane, is a collection of spiraling clouds on a lower cloud level that has culminated a specific wind speed, and it is impelled in a vortical swirl by a tropical cyclonic clear air vortex of troposphere or stratosphere, and its vortex column has touched the surface of ocean with its fully opened vortex eye.

Subtropical jet stream of polar vortex impels its satellite vortex

From late summer through late winter, where lesser sunlight hits the northern hemisphere as a result of the Earth's axis tilt, the cooler moist and denser air could resonate more intensely to form tropical storm in a manifested torque-free precession effect.

From the UVS perspective, the subtropical jet stream of the satellite polar vortex, when cuts into the invariable plane, could resonate to form a very vortically intensive sub-satellite vortex of stratosphere with its vortex column being pushed through the troposphere. The eye of a tropical cyclone is typically 30-65 km in diameter, and thus it is sufficiently large enough to even bring down the entire stratosphere layer to sea level. The warm core of a tropical cyclone, apparently is as a result of sunken warmer stratosphere air has displaced the cooler troposphere air with the vortex column; the warmer stratosphere has filled the vortex column of a tropical cyclone in the cooler troposphere level.

UVS predicates that the warm core of a tropical cyclone is as a result of warmer stratosphere has filled the vortex column in the cooler troposphere level.

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism, the cyclonic satellite polar vortex renders the main axis of this unisonal vortex that forms a forced vortex on the surface of the troposphere on lower cloud level. In the northern hemisphere, the secondary axis is rendered by the rotating axis of the Earth, its tangential centrifugal force generates a net westerly horizontal force at a side nearer to the equator to impels the forced vortex manifested on the main axis. This horizontal driving force interacts with Earth's spheroidal pushed-in gravitational field to transform the forced vortex with vortical torsion to form as a cyclonic tropical depression at initial stage.

From the UVS perspective, the mysterious mechanism that draws a tropical cyclone toward the Polar Center is an inertial force generated as a result of the paradoxical parabolic shaped atmosphere on a hemisphere; the tropical cyclone is drawn from a higher gravitation potential to a center of lower gravitational potential.

See a UVS topic on "Polar vortex" that elaborates on this inertial force with differential gravitational potential.

At the Atlantic basin, most hurricanes that hit united state were spawn after summers, brewing from tropical depressions to tropical storms and gradually developed into hurricanes that moved toward the Polar Center.

At the early stage of a Category 1 hurricane, which could be steered and impelled by an easterly jet stream, it is a lower intensity cyclonic free vortex of troposphere with a cold core vortex eye.

From the UVS perspective, the further a hurricane moves toward its pole, the altitude of atmosphere level gradually becomes lower in an oblate nested atmosphere. And this itself would cause the vortex eye to progressively enlarge as a result of thinner atmosphere at the polar region.

During winter if the aligned Solar System arrangement has strong precession effect, the intensity of the hurricane would be increase, and this would also enlarge the vortex eye.

When the intensified vortex eye of a hurricane is large enough, at a size of 50km and above, it could cause warmer air from the upper stratosphere layer to sink into the vortex column, thus its vortex column becomes a warm core in the troposphere layer. The hurricane could therefore become a much more intensified stratospheric vortex that could then trigger a thermal-mechanics effect to self sustain by drawing thermal energy from a warmer ocean.

This thermal-mechanics effect that have positive feedback loops, could draw energy from the warm sea as thermal reservoir that function like a vertical heat engine; this effect thus could sustain and even further strengthen the hurricane. Arrived at this later stage, the hurricane could have a diameter of up to a few hundred kilometer.

From the UVS perspective, when the eye of the tropical cyclone is opened with it vortex column manifested to touch the surface of the ocean, the atmospheric medium in higher troposphere would be consolidated through the atmospheric vortex column to vortically form a vortrex at underneath the tropical cyclone.

The vortrex of the atmospheric vortex in a thermal reservoir of warm sea could react in a positive feedback loop with cold air vortically pushed down from higher altitude to sea level with the vortical momentum of its vortex column. This can drive a cold core tropical cyclone with a thermal-mechanics effect at its lower vortex column, and thus can intensify or keep its vortical form steady in its self-perpetuating motion.

hen a hurricane hit shore, thus being cut away from the thermal reservoir of warm sea, the thermal-mechanics effect would stop to fuel the cyclonic atmospheric vortex, it thus would begin to dissipate. It could weaken rapidly, thus down grading from a hurricane to a tropical storm, and then gradually dissipates while moving further inland.

From the UVS perspective, the phenomenon of storm surge is impelled by the vortrex of its atmospheric vortex when it moves toward the shore. The vortical reaction with upward spiraling jet of air stream column that vortically cruises on the surface of the sea, would displace sea water around the vortex column to vortically push sea water to rise around its rim. The vortical bounced back force of this air stream when near shore is less absorbed with lesser mass of water in shallow water near the shore, it therefore can generate huge surging waves with the conserved vortical momentum. Perceivably, these are the circumstances of a manifested tropical cyclone that cause storm surge.

UVS predicates that storm surge is caused by vortrex of a huge atmospheric vortex with persistence angular momentum that vortically pushes out water away from its vortex column.
