Universal Vortical Singularity enlightenments on the vortices of Jupiter

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

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

With the underlying mechanism for cloud bands elucidated, the empirically observation that cloud bands on Jupiter are manifested by the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter, is the qualitative proof that cloud bands on Jupiter are the substructures of the nested polar vortex pair of Jupiter.

The grounds for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of Jupiter's cloud bands 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 was simply dispersed, 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.


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.

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

See a UVS topic on "Polar jet streams" that elaborates on how polar jet streams on Earth are manifested by its atmospheric polar vortex pair.

Watch a video clip on "Perpetual Ocean" that illustrates amazing satellite views for vortices manifested in Earth's ocean.


Satellite vortices on Jupiter

Based on the UVS model, the Great Red Spot and ovals on Jupiter are undulated by the harmonically resonated satellite free vortices, which are impelled by the polar vortex pair in the nested atmosphere of Jupiter.

The cognitive paradox that renders satellite vortices on Jupiter as mysterious phenomena, was thus resolved with the illustration of its underlying mechanism.

UVS predicates that the Great Red Spot and ovals on Jupiter are undulated by satellite vortices manifested and impelled by the Jupiter's pair of nested polar vortices.

With the cognitive paradox resolved and therefore elucidated its delusion that render it as a mysterious phenomenon, it is simply a fact that the vortices of Jupiter are satellite vortices of the Jupiter's pair of nested polar vortices as they are empirically observed; this is simply an outright qualitatively proof for Great Red Spot and ovals are merely undulated by the visible vortices manifested by Jupiter's pair of nested polar vortices in the nested atmosphere of Jupiter.

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 Great Red Spot on Jupiter

Based on the UVS model, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter is undulated by a harmonically resonated anti-cyclonic satellite free vortex impelled by its nested polar vortex in the nested atmosphere of Jupiter.

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism, as a result of being impelled by a cyclonic polar vortex between the easterly jet stream and the westerly jet stream at outside its polar vortex core, the Great Red Spot is an anti-cyclone that sits on the South Equatorial Belt in southern hemisphere, and it spins in counter-clockwise direction.

As empirically oberved, the Great Red Spot is fixated with the sidereal rotation of Jupiter suggests that this anti-cyclone is a persistent atmospheric eddy impelled by its polar vortex.

UVS predicates that the Great Red Spot is a persistent atmospheric eddy impelled by its polar vortex. Revamped.

See a 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.

[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

See UVS topics on "The Antarctica Ozone Hole" that elaborates on the synchronized retrograde motion of a polar vortex with Earth's moon, "The Great White Spot on Saturn" that elaborates on how a chain of satellite free vortex cluster were periodically observed to have manifested by the axial-tilt of Saturn with its revolving precession effect, and "Sunspot" that elaborates on how two satellites that has a near orbital resonance are contributing to cause lower latitude unisonal vortices to spawn and peak in the photosphere of the Sun in an approximate twenty-two year solar cycle.

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.

 

Retrograde cloud bands

A thin cloud band region on two sides along the equator of the equatorial white cloud band at Equatorial Zone facing the poles, impels circular chains of smaller anti-cyclonic satellite vortices. These westerly polar jet streams on a lower altitude atmosphere drives another chain of cyclonic vortices in two exposed higher altitude regions of both hemispheres (North Equatorial Belt and South Equatorial Belt) in the brown cloud bands. Those cyclonic satellite vortex cluster merged on the lower atmosphere renders the phenomenon of easterly retrograde cloud bands; the brown cloud bands in this lower atmosphere compressed to tropical region along equator by its polar vortices would have merged all those cyclonic vortices within the cloud band.

Based on cyclonic gravity field effect, the differential rotation of a cloud band is caused by the resonance of standing wave, manifested in opposite angular phase by a traverse spherical wave of an atmospheric layer that was vortically impelled. Cloud bands on different altitudes exposed at different latitudes are impelled by the nested polar vortex pair to cyclonically rotate at different angular velocities, and interacted by the chains of satellite vortices that exert differential force, it would render the phenomenon of differential rotation.

UVS predicates that the retrograde cloud bands are caused by cyclonic satellite vortex clusters had merged on their lower atmospheric layers.

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

 

Other vortices of Jupiter

Image on right is a polar region of Jupiter at South Pole that shows spokes in a circle arrangement within a polygonal-like cloud structure, the spokes are connected to a large oval cloud structure at the center, which appears as an almost perfect circle.

The diagram below illustrates that the vortical spokes around the cloud band are satellite unisonal vortices of the polar vortex in a crossed-section view. It also illustrates its vortex column with its oval vortex eye that has opened through at the center.

Two-dimensional pictorial of a unisonal vortex with nested vortex formations in a paradigm with harmonic unisonal vortices of cyclones and anti-cyclones that interact in unison. Animations on right illustrate the fractals of vortical motion.

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism, the white oval at the center is the vortex column of the polar vortex with its vortex eye opened through to its lower atmospheric layer.

From the UVS perspective, the westerly white cloud band right on the equator is on a highest visible cloud level that was formed above other cloud bands as a result of a polar vortex pair has opened up to tropical region till nearest the equator. This clearly visible white cloud band on higher altitude overlays on all lower layers of wider cloud bands formed at higher latitudes.

Also, the chain of anti-cyclonic vortices in those easterly jet streams are the circularly compressed vortical spiral arms of unisonal vortex; the easterly jet streams are formed by these anti-cyclonic vortices that have had merged as a ring around the outer nested boundaries of Jupiter's atmospheric layers.

The effect of overlapping of wider cloud bands on lower altitude rendered the phenomenon of symmetric cloud bands pairs on both hemispheres at various latitudes; these manifests as the exposed cloud band regions. There should be a vaguely visible razor-thin band right on equatorial plane formed by higher layer atmosphere that were flattened by polar vortices pair to a very thin disc, which forms as a planetary ring. The bottom of the planetary ring that is on the surface in a thin middle region of the equatorial white cloud band rotates at a slower speed, this would drag on the middle region of the equatorial white cloud band.

See an externally linked topic on "Atmosphere of Jupiter" for the details of Jupiter's cloud bands.

The rotating equatorial white cloud band in Equatorial Zone at region further away from the equator on a curved planetary surface is gradually smaller in diameter therefore moves fastest by the side, and dragged in a middle region by a higher altitude razor-thin cloud band, these renders the phenomenon of butterfly-shaped interference patterns on the westerly equatorial white cloud band, which were asymmetric anti-cyclonic satellite vortices on both hemispheres that were being stretched. From a polar view, these anti-cyclones are the vortical spiral arms of a polar unisonal vortex, they have flattened on an atmospheric surface at the Equatorial Zone, these vortical spiral arms from both hemispheres have had merged around the equator and therefore render as those butterfly-shaped interference patterns ( Click on icon to see a large image for spiral arms on Equatorial Zone in a view from North Pole of Jupiter).

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

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

See a UVS topic on "Mysterious Planetary Rings" for an animated illustration on how an atmospheric layer is being opened by its polar vortex pair to compress it as a flattened disc around its equator.


Planetary rings of Jupiter


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

The illumination of the polar aurora was caused by electric current generated by the dynamo effect in magnetohydrodynamics of its vortically culminated plasma, which causes ionized matters to glow by electric glow discharge; polar aurorae are vortically impelled to glow by its nested pair of polar vortex.

See a UVS topic on "Aurora" that illustrates the phenomenon is also caused by polar vortex with glowing ionized gas, and "The orbit of natural satellite" that illustrates the vortical motion of all celestial objects.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses based on the unheard-of UVS model, are bounded to have shortcomings, loose ends, and errors. Many details and assumptions of its propositions established in the conceptual frameworks of UVS, have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or proven. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the topics presented in the UVS worldview, and any term or statement if offensive in any manner or whatsoever is most regretted.
