The UVS inductive resolutions on the vortices of Jupiter

Based on the UVS model, the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter that have had their cascaded vortex column pair opened up to different latitudes on different layers of its nested atmosphere at different altitudes, formed the cloud bands on Jupiter; the nested atmospheric layers were vortically compressed from the two poles toward the equator by the cascaded vortex column pair of their polar vortex pair.

Cloud bands on Jupiter
- Manifested by a pair of nested polar vortices

UVS predicates that the cloud bands on Jupiter are formed by the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter with their cascaded vortex columns opened to different extents on its nested atmosphere.

The cognitive paradox that renders the formation of cloud bands on Jupiter as a mysterious phenomenon, was thus meticulously resolved with its underlying structure and mechanism explicated.

See an externally linked topic on "Zones, belts and jets" that elaborates on the cloud bands of Jupiter.

From the UVS perspective, the cloud band of the Equatorial Zone (EZ) is vortically formed on a higher cloud level as a result of a cascaded vortex column pair of the nested polar vortex pair have opened up to the tropical region on both sides of the equator, and this cloud band overlays above the other cloud bands that are also vortically formed by the cascaded vortex column pair.

This cloud band of the Equatorial Zone formed on higher altitude, overlays on all lower altitude layers of wider and wider overlapping cloud bands.

The overlapping of wider cloud bands on lower altitudes caused by the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter, rendered the phenomenon of symmetric cloud bands pairs on both hemispheres that appeared as horizontal stripes at various latitudinal zones; the exposed regions of the overlaying cloud bands, appeared as the idealized belts and zones of cloud bands.

With the underlying structure and mechanism for cloud band elucidated, the empirically observed nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter, indubitably substantiates as the qualitative proof that cloud bands on Jupiter are formed by their cascaded vortex column pair.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of Jupiter's cloud bands 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 was simply dispersed, 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 topic on "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborates on the grounded theory methodology for the evaluations of natural phenomena.

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.

Planetary rings of Jupiter

Based on the UVS model, the planetary rings on Jupiter are formed as a result of some sections of the nested polar vortex pair at higher altitude atmospheric layers, have had their vortex eyes opened to the extend that they are flattened on the equatorial plane, and thus formed as planetary rings. These vaguely visible outer atmospheric layers, overlaid above the equatorial cloud band layer, were vortically flattened as planetary rings.

See the UVS topic on "The mysterious planetary Rings" for an animated illustration on how an atmospheric layer is being opened by its nested polar vortex pair to compress it as flattened rings around its equator.


Planetary rings of Jupiter

Heuristically, the vaguely visible razor-thin planetary ring extended on the equatorial plane, formed by a flattened pair of polar vortex opened to the equator, cuts onto the surface of the cloud band of the equatorial zone, and thus drags on the cloud band. This effect renders the phenomenon of butterfly-shaped interference patterns on the westerly cloud band of the Equatorial Zone.


.
Retrograde cloud bands

From the UVS perspective, the polar vortex pair that forms the thinner cloud band of the Equatorial Zone (EZ), overlays on the polar vortex pair that forms the wider belt of brownish cloud band on lower altitude. The exposed sections of the wider belt of brownish cloud band, thus appeared as the North Equatorial Belt (NEB) and the South Equatorial Belt (SEB) by the two sides of the Equatorial Zone.

As could be perceived, the thinner cloud band of the Equatorial Zone on higher altitude, are impelling two circular chains of cyclonic satellite vortices in the lower altitude brownish cloud band on both sides of the equator in the exposed North Equatorial Belt and South Equatorial Belt.

These two chains of cyclonic satellite vortex clusters, having merged on lower altitude and thus manifest the differential motions in the exposed regions of the lower altitude brownish cloud band at its edges, render the phenomenon of the two easterly retrograding cloud bands and retrograde jet streams. They asymmetrically appear on both sides of the equator at the two edges of the wider brownish cloud band that underlies below the thinner cloud band of the Equatorial Zone.

UVS predicates that the Jupiter's retrograde cloud bands are formed by the differential motions in the chains of merged cyclonic satellite vortex clusters.

Note: The phenomenon of retrograde cloud bands on Jupiter defies the Coriolis effect.


.
Jet streams on Jupiter

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism, the jet streams on Jupiter are manifested by the vortrices of the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter; these are the substructures of the nested polar vortex pair.

UVS predicates that the jet streams on Jupiter are manifested by the vortrices of the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter.

See the UVS topic on "Jet streams" that elaborates on how all the jet streams on Earth are manifested by its nested atmospheric polar vortex pair.

With the underlying structure and mechanism of jet stream elucidated, the empirical observations of jet streams on Jupiter are vortically impelled by the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter, substantiate as the qualitative proofs that jet streams on Jupiter are the substructures of the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter.

Note: Jet streams and cloud bands on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are major unsolved problems in planetary science.

Watch a video clip on "Perpetual Ocean" that illustrates amazing satellite views for vortices manifested in the oceans of the Earth.


.
Satellite vortices on Jupiter

Based on the UVS model, the ovals and storms on Jupiter are the harmonically resonated satellite vortices, which are impelled by the pair of polar vortices in the nested atmosphere of Jupiter.

UVS predicates that the ovals and storms on Jupiter are coalesced by satellite vortices manifested and impelled by the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter.

As could be observed, the cyclonic satellite vortices are impelled by the westerly jet streams, and the anti-cyclonic satellite vortices are impelled by the easterly jet streams.

And it is simply a fact that these vortices as observed on Jupiter, are satellite vortices of the Jupiter's pair of nested polar vortices as they are empirically observed. These observations substantiate as the qualitatively proofs that the undulating ovals and storms, are satellite vortices impelled by the pair of nested polar vortices on Jupiter in the nested atmosphere of Jupiter.

.
The Great Red Spot on Jupiter

Based on the UVS model, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter is an anticyclonic storm resonated in its anti-cyclonic satellite free vortex, which is impelled by a retrograde jet stream of a nested polar vortex in a nested atmospheric layer of Jupiter.

As a result of being impelled by a westerly jet stream, the Great Red Spot spinning in counter-clockwise direction, is an anti-cyclone that forms on the South Equatorial Belt in the southern hemisphere.

As empirically observed, the Great Red Spot is fixated with the sidereal rotation of Jupiter. This suggests that it is a persistent atmospheric eddy of its anti-cyclonic satellite vortex impelled by a retrograde jet stream.

UVS predicates that the Great Red Spot is a persistent atmospheric eddy of its anti-cyclonic satellite vortex formed at a fixed spot. Revamped.

See the UVS topic on "Bermuda Triangle" that illustrates on how the dragging effect of landmass can cause an atmospheric eddy in clear air to naturally form.


The Great Red Spot on Jupiter

An earlier analysis for the causality of the Great Red Spot that was falsified:

From the UVS perspective, the
stability of the Great Red Spot is primarily rendered by orbital resonance with three Galilean moons in Laplace resonance; it is manifested by the composite torque-induced precession of its prominent moons that are in orbital resonance. *falsified

UVS predicates that the Great Red Spot of Jupiter is primarily impelled by the three Galilean moons in Laplace resonance.
*falsified. The empirical observation as recorded in "ROTATION PERIOD OF GREAT RED SPOT" on page 80 had shown that the Great Red Spot is fixated with the sidereal rotation of Jupiter. (E&OE: The hypothesis was falsified with the assumption that this empirical observation on the rotation period of Great Red Spot is correct.)

[Evidently, from a perspective on fixed reference frame at the center of Jupiter, such that the Great Red Spot is viewed to be isolated and has an orbital period of slightly more than 9.925 hour (the sidereal rotation period of Jupiter). This is as a result of the Great Red Soot is revolving with a slight westward drift, which is caused by the easterly jet stream that retrogrades in the South Equatorial Belt on Jupiter.

Therefore, Ganymede (at orbital period of 171.7 hr), Europa (85.2 hr), Io (42.5 hr) and the Great Red Spot (assuming its relative orbital period is 10.6 hr) would be in a 16:8:4:1 ratio of orbital period of their orbital resonance, or has the orbital ratio of 1:2:4:16 in their Laplace resonance.

From the UVS perspective, the torque-induced precession from the three Galilean moons in Laplace resonance with cyclonic motion, impels the anti-cyclonic Great Red Spot with a differential rotation by their exchanging of angular momentum.

The precession effect of the three Galilean moons in a cyclonic motion Laplace resonance, could have maintained the stability of the Great Red Spot as an anti-cyclonic vortex.] *falsified



The Laplace resonance exhibited by three of the Galilean moons. The ratios in the figure are of orbital periods.
[The orbital period of Great Red Spot was assumed to be 10.6 hours. And this is a perspective from above the South Pole.] *falsified

There was no empirical evidence as yet that the Great Red Spot revolves on Jupiter internally at the orbital period of 10.6 hour, however, this is a very reasonable proposal by considering its slight westward drift (can be empirically observed) caused by the easterly jet stream that retrogrades on the South Equatorial Belt, which would have slightly increased its orbital period of the Great Red Spot, and could have increased it from 9.925 hours to 10.6 hours. (*falsified: There is empirical evidence available now on the Great Red Spot did not revolve at the orbital period of 10.6 hour.)

Paradoxically, this resolution for resolving the mystery was accomplished by analyzing the Laplace resonance of Great Red Spot and the three Galilean Moons in an inside-out manner perceived with the ratio of orbital period; analyzing in the outside-in manner perceived with the ratio of number of orbits negates its resolution from being discovered in plain sight. And the underlying mechanism that supposedly impels the Great Red Spot has come from outside of Jupiter, it supposedly comes from the torque-induced precession of the three Galilean moons in orbital resonance; the causality is seemingly not from within Jupiter that renders the stability of the Great Red Spot. *falsified

With credit to oldbrew from TALLBLOKE'S TALKSHOP for his post that links to an archive on "ROTATION PERIOD OF GREAT RED SPOT", which has a 135 year record for the sidereal revolving period of the Great Red Spot, and it shows that the Great Red Spot had revolved with the rotation of Jupiter with only a slight fluctuation.

Polar aurora of Jupiter

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism, the phenomenon of polar aurora on Jupiter is rendered by an intensified plasmatic polar vortex.

From the UVS perspective, the pair of polar aurorae on Jupiter are vortically impelled by its nested polar vortex pair to ionically glow.

The illumination of an polar aurora is caused by electric current generated by the dynamo effect in magnetohydrodynamics of its vortically formed plasma, which causes ionized matters to glow by electric glow discharge in the atmosphere.

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.
