The UVS visual inductive resolution on tropical cyclone (Hurricane)

Based on the UVS model, a tropical cyclone[w] is induced in an atmospheric free vortex] of troposphere with vortically consolidated clouds.

The UVS research predicates a tropical cyclone is formed by its underlying atmospheric free vortex spawned in the troposphere.

What could be optically observed, is merely a part of a made visible vortical structure of its invisible underlying clear air atmospheric vortex, which has had unisonally manifested on the surface of the lower cloud level.

Remarks: The mainstream meteorology[w] claims that the Coriolis effect[w] rendered by the Earth's rotation causes the winds to rotate, and in the right conditions tropical cyclones are thus formed.

From the UVS perspective, an external perturbation by a torque-induced precession[w] from the focused precession[w] effect of aligned Solar System objects[uvs], can resonate a torque-free precession[w] on Earth in a unisonal chain effect of the nested polar vortex[uvs] and its satellite vortex to manifest an atmospheric free vortex to form a tropical cyclone.

See the UVS case study on "A tri-typhoon cluster event and its dynamic arrangement of the cross-aligned Solar System objects" that illustrates how the Solar System alignment effects are correlated with natural events.

The vortical effect of a subliminally manifested atmospheric free vortex that collects clouds as a visible swirling structure, is merely the effects of its invisible atmospheric free vortex that has spawned on the lower cloud level; it is merely a cognitive paradox of an invisible atmospheric vortex that renders the mysterious phenomena of tropical cyclone.

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism[uvs], a seasonally manifested anti-cyclonic satellite polar vortex with its differential motion, renders the main axis to form a cyclonic atmospheric forced vortex[uvs] on the surface of the lower cloud level in the troposphere. The secondary axis is rendered by the rotating axis of the Earth with its cyclonic nested polar vortex, its tangential centrifugal force generates a net westerly horizontal force at its side nearer to the equator to impel the forced vortex.

This horizontal driving force when intensified in the vortical systems, could transform the forced vortex to become a free vortex with vortical torsion to form a cyclonic tropical depression at initial stage, and this could be developed as a tropical cyclone at the later stages.

The cognitive paradox that renders the mysterious phenomena of tropical cyclone, was thus meticulously resolved with its underlying vortical structure and mechanism explicated.

The fact that tropical cyclone is a swirl structure of cloud coalesced by its atmospheric free vortex as can be empirically observed, is indubitably the qualitative proof that it is formed by its underlying atmospheric free vortex.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying vortical structure and mechanism of a tropical cyclone 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 paradox could be meticulously resolved, 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.

In the UVS worldview, a tropical cyclone is a visible substructure of its nested atmospheric polar vortex[uvs], and it is vortically formed in a unisonal chain effect with a collection of spiraling clouds on the lower cloud level. A manifested tropical cyclone is coalesced by a vortical swirl in a spawned tropical cyclonic atmospheric free vortex of troposphere, which its vortex column with vortically intensified repulsion force has opened through to the sea level, and this forms the eye of the storm on the cloud level.

Tropical cyclone is largely formed with the precession effects that had resonated to manifest its atmospheric vortex; it is not caused by the Coriolis effect[w] of the Earth that couples with the other involved factors. And as a matter of fact, there were anticyclonic tropical cyclones[w]; these defy the Coriolis effect.

The intensity of a tropical depression moving along its path is always subjected to changing circumstances in changing environment. It is subjected to the combined tidal forces[w] from aligned and cross-aligned Solar System objects with the dynamically changing magnitudes of their focused precession effects, as well as when the atmospheric vortex is entering a neck junction into the polar jet stream[uvs] while it moves to higher latitude.

Evidently, the tidal effect of the Moon can internally and externally alter the shape of a multi-core polar vortex, and thus changes the trajectory of a tropical cyclone. The tidal effect of the Moon can affect the internal structures in each core of the multi-core vortex column, as well as can affect the external structure of the nested polar vortex.

See the UVS topic on "The Antarctica Ozone Hole" that illustrates how the motion of the Moon affects the shape of a meandering polar vortex.

And after having gained more driving power by entering into the path of stronger jet streams, or has triggered a thermal-mechanical effect[w] with warm sea water as an added thermal energy source, the atmospheric vortex would be further intensified. All these effects could collectively transform a 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.

From the UVS perspective, an intensified subtropical jet stream[uvs] of the nested polar vortex when cuts into the invariable plane[w] of the Solar System[w], could also culminate to form a more intensified sub-satellite polar vortex in troposphere, and thus forms a higher intensity tropical cyclone in its other changing circumstances with changed environment.

Track of Hurricane Katrina

At the Atlantic basin, most hurricanes (aka tropical cyclone) that had spawned after summers at tropical latitude, were transformed from tropical depressions to tropical storms, and then gradually developed into hurricanes that peculiarly moved toward the Polar Center in their meandering sinusoidal paths as were observed.

Hypothetically, these cyclonic hurricanes of the Atlantic basin, were initially spawned at around the six o'clock position of their satellite polar vortices (as illustrated with the image on the right).

From the UVS perspective, an underlying atmospheric vortex spawned at that six o'clock junction in the tropical region, is jointly impelled by the differential force of the anti-cyclonic satellite polar vortex with its easterly jet stream, and the direct force of the westerly tropical air stream coming from a nested layer of the cyclonic polar vortex that encapsulates the satellite polar vortex.

The prospective hurricane at this stage is mostly coalesced by a lower intensity nested cyclonic free vortex[uvs] that had just manifested in the troposphere at around that junction in the vortical chain effect.

At the early stage of a prospective hurricane, it apparently was steered and impelled by the easterly jet stream[uvs] of the satellite polar vortex to differentially move around it externally, and was being pushed inwardly by the westerly tropical air stream by the outer nested layer of the encapsulating nested polar vortex. This effect could lodge the underlying atmospheric vortex of the hurricane to circle around the undulating satellite polar vortex in the clockwise sinusoidal path.

At the intermediate stage of the matured hurricane when it was passing by the twelve o'clock position of the satellite polar vortex, and after having moved much further away from the tropical air stream, its underlying cyclonic atmospheric vortex would naturally dislodge from the anti-cyclonic satellite polar vortex as a result of their vortical repulsion forces.

The hurricane in its underlying cyclonic atmospheric vortex, could therefore be captured by an inner nested layer of the cyclonic polar vortex at the subtropical region, and thus it was then vortically impelled by the subtropical jet stream to move in the anti-clockwise sinusoidal path toward the North Pole within the inner nested layer of the undulating polar vortex.

An illustration for the sinusoidal jet stream paths of the gradually manifested hurricane in the satellite polar vortex and its polar vortex.

At the later stage after the hurricane had moved further away from the subtropical jet stream that was impelling its underlying cyclonic atmospheric vortex, it thus gradually dissipates at higher latitude.

In a nutshell, a spawned hurricane is being impelled by its nested polar vortex and satellite polar vortex in a vortical chain effect. Its intensity is primarily contributed by the axial arrangement of the Earth interacting with the other significant Solar System objects with the strength of their torque-induced precession. The other factor for the intensity of a matured hurricane is contributed by the sunken atmosphere in the opened through vortex column that thus triggered the thermal-mechanical effect in the warm sea. And the meandering sinusoidal path of a typical hurricane, is primarily governed by the meandering jet streams of their undulating nested polar vortex and satellite polar vortex.

From the UVS perspective, besides the torque induced precession effects of jet streams that vortically pushes a hurricane in spiral motions toward the pole, a mysterious mechanism that draws it toward the Polar Center could be an inertial force generated as a result of the paradoxical parabolic shaped atmosphere[uvs] on a hemisphere; the hurricane at a higher gravitation potential, is also subjected to an inertial force pushing it to a center region with lower gravitational potential.

The further a hurricane moves toward its pole, the altitude of the cloud level surface its swirling cloud structure is floating on would gradually become lower in an oblate nested atmosphere. The nested atmospheric layers is thinner at the polar region, it thus allows the vortex eye to progressively enlarge in lowered atmospheric pressure with reduced air mass.

See the UVS topics on "The nested polar vortex pair" that elaborates on this inertial force with differential gravitational potential, and "Polar jet stream" that also illustrates how the nested atmosphere of Earth is thinner at higher latitude.

From the UVS perspective, when the intensified vortex eye of a hurricane is large enough, at a size of say 35km and above, it would cause warmer air from the stratosphere layer to sink into the vortex column, thus causing its vortex column to become a warm core at the cloud level in the troposphere.

The warm core of a hurricane, apparently is as a result of sunken warmer stratosphere air has displaced the cooler troposphere air in the vortex column at the cloud level; the warmer stratosphere air has filled the vortex column of the underlying atmospheric vortex in the relatively cooler cloud level.

The UVS research predicates the warm core of a tropical cyclone is as a result of a relatively warmer air layer in the stratosphere has filled the vortex column in the cooler cloud level.

A matured hurricane with its vortex column touching the sea level, could therefore become more intensified with a triggered thermal-mechanical effect to self sustain its underlying atmospheric vortex by drawing thermal energy from a relatively warm sea.

This thermal-mechanical effect in its positive feedback loop, could draw more energy from a warmer sea as a thermal source with a vortically triggered differential temperature. Its vortical mechanism functions like a vertical heat engine with its vortically formed air channel, and thus draws out cooler air from inside the vortex column with the rising hot air at outside the vortex column.

The vortically manifested thermal-mechanical system, could thus sustain and even further strengthen the underlying atmospheric vortex of the hurricane.

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

Watch a video clip on "Raging Seas - Terrifying Surf, Storm Surge and Rogue Waves!".

From the UVS perspective, when the eye of the tropical cyclone is opened with its underlying vortex column manifested to touch the surface of the sea, the underlying atmospheric vortex would vortically culminate to form a bowl-shaped vortrex[uvs] on the surface of the sea.

The vortical reaction of the underlying atmospheric vortex with its upward spiraling jet of air stream, vortically cruises on the surface of the sea and thus would displace sea water around the undulating vortex column to vortically push sea water to rise around the parabolic rim of its vortrex. The vortical repulsion force of this air stream of the tropical cyclone is absorbed by lesser sea water when it is nearer to the shore, and thus the culminated[d] vortical force could form much larger standing waves with conserved vortical momentum in shallow water to form the storm surge[w] with its undulating vortrex.

It is indeed you simply won't find activities that you don't visualize.
