  2. Just an experiment to see if the table would show up as readablew in Opera.What I did was take out all the matching times, then the ones that were similar but 12 hours apart then the ones that were some 6 hours different.It gets more and more error prone if you try to make them match to withing 3 hours and of course they degree of instability between those that are some 1/2 hour different is too much to allow.maybe I shouls put the phases in proper order?

  4. As you can see there are not many summer months that don't match in some way or other. (I removed all the matched ones.)There were more lunar phases in the year 2005 over the time period covered. I suppose I should not have counted March or April. Hurricanes in May are fairly rare too. And October is taken to be the end of the season in the North Atlantic.But it was all just a rough exercise. I couldn't figure a way to show the matches up so I just erased them in a spreadsheet.If you want to try it here is the link for lunar phases:http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/phase/phase2001gmt.html

  5. The key factors behind the TSR forecast for a slightly below-average hurricane season in 2012 are the anticipated small supressing effect of the July-September forecast trade wind at 925mb height over the Caribbean Sea and tropical North Atlantic region (7.5 to 17.5 N., 30 to 100 W.) and of August- September forecast sea surface temperature for the Atlantic MDR (10 to 20 N., 20 to 60 W.)PDF: http://www.tropicalstormrisk.com/docs/TSRATLForecastApr2012.pdf***

  6. Originally posted by Smithsonian archives for 2005:

    SIERRA NEGRA Galápagos Islands 0.83°S, 91.17°W; 1,490 m; All times are local (= UTC – 6 hours)According to IG, an eruption began at Sierra Negra on the S end of Isabela Island on 22 October at 17:30. An explosion was heard in Villamil, 20 km SE of the volcano.The eruption was preceded by a seismic event on 22 October at 14:38, and by earthquakes on 19 October and 2 weeks earlier. Washington VAAC recorded an ash cloud on satellite imagery at 17:45 at a height of 50,000 ft moving SW, and a very large hotspot.The ash cloud may have reached a height of 65,600 ft.Extensive lava fountains were seen rising to heights of 200-300 m along a segment of the Sierra Negra rim. Incandescent lava flowed several kilometers down the outer NW flank of the volcano's edifice and tourists reported seeing two lava flows descending the N flank.

    That was a bit early in the spel for my liking but you get the picture?

    That is nonsense but yet…If you get a run of phases with the times all in the same hour you get a run of similar weather. Check out:25th Oct 01:172nd Nov 01:25 and9th Nov 01:57in 2005 and24th Aug 13:54 31st Aug 13:58 and8th Sep 13:15 in 2012.As it just so happens they both turn out to be related spells and both in the hurricane season. AND both likely to produce wet spells in Britain and Florida.Hence both likely to have severe hurricanes in them.In fact they might be pluperfect:24 Hurricane WILMA 15-25 OCT 150 882 5 25 Tropical Storm ALPHA 22-24 OCT 45 998 – *** 26 Hurricane BETA 27-31 OCT 100 960 3 <<<27 Tropical Depression TWENTY 14-16 NOV 30 1004 – ***28 Tropical Storm GAMMA 18-21 NOV 40 1004 – 29 Tropical Storm DELTA 23-28 NOV 60 980 There was only one significant hurricane in the North Atlantic that run (I haven't checked out the Asian Pacific cyclones though, nor the earthquake lists.) All the others missed the dates. http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/2005H/index.php

  8. Nothing about the previous volcano in the next bulletin, but there was this:Originally posted by Smithsonian:

    ARENAL Costa Rica 10.46°N, 84.70°W; summit elev. 1,657 m; All times are local (= UTC – 6 hours)Explosive activity began at Arenal on 2 November at 14:54. A pyroclastic flow was generated at 15:02 and movement continued for ~10 minutes. OVISICORI-UNA scientists found that the mid-sized pyroclastic flow travelled down the volcano's W flank, producing an ash cloud that drifted SE. An area was impacted that extended from the volcano's summit to about 1,000 m. on Arenal's W flank. For several months, lava flows on the volcano's SW flank had been growing rapidly.

    Quite a busy sereis of spells by the look of it.

  9. I wish I could understand how to make them post as tables.What I did was copy both year's phases to a notepad to remove the formatting.You can convert spacing and tabs to paragraphs in a notepad:Control + H opens the Find and Replace tool. Copy the spaces you want to replace and paste them into the top line or uset the code. For a tab it is:tin Open Office and Linux's Text Editor but I think it is slightly different in Office Libre. In Microsoft Word it is:^tReplace them all with this "expression":n M$ Word: ^pOnce I had them all in a column, I pasted them to Open Office Spread sheet and moved the columns around.I only needed late May to early December but as usual I got greedy. The Hurricane Season is officially June to November.If I knew how to use a spreadsheet I would divide all the hours by 6. But every time I learned how to do it it divided the minutes too.(I didn't know how to ignore the minutes and I have forgotten all that I did know these days.) What I would have to do is replace the colon : in the times with a tab t that would give me two columns and I could then just reduce the hours and rejoin the minutes afterwards.It's a long way from using a computer efficiently but I got as much pleasure out of it as anyone would get playing with a jigsaw puzzle. (Small things, I know.)I was shown how to use macros but I have no memory for stuff like that. It will go in superficially but just won't stay in.But how many people do you know that can look at a weather chart and see earthquakes forming?It's horses for courses.The problem with minutes is that they change a spell from stable to unstable. Or visa versa without changing an overall spell. So spells that are almost identical but 20 or 30 minutes different may have weather that is nothing alike.If the time is something:20 …say: 01:20, in June 2005… and there is a similar phase in June 2012 at 01:50…they may be very different, with one having a Greenland High and one having a Greenland Low.On the other hand if one June has a time of 01:30 in it and the other June has a time of 13:30, then the weather will probably be a closer match.And if you divide 13 by 6.Or take 6 hours away from the time of 13:30 twice…..You are left with 01:30. A perfect match.Can you understand that?I have no idea why it works. And there are times when it doesn't.But when it doesn't work is when there is going to be a large quake or severe tornado, or a tropical storm.If you understand what I have just said, you should be able to make a reasonable forecast for 2012 hurricanes.Try it.If you are a religious person you might want to clear your head with prayer. That's what I did. Though I have a sneaking suspicion that at the final trump, my behaviour is going to get me disowned.Pity that. http://duckduckgo.com/?t=ouk&q=regular+expressions

  10. Nothing spectacular occurred in the last of that run but Colima was mentioned in all three of them. The problem with volcano archives is that they rely on satellite imagery. This is all very well if a spy satellite is being used (and the military release the data) but most weather satellites are not geared for seeing glass clouds in poor weather.Ordinary clouds get in the way.

  11. I'm not really sure what you want but I think it's a simple table like this one.

    So how do I fill the tables?

    Table is defined with those tags.

    A table is divided into rows (with the tag).
    Each row is divided into data cells (with the tag). It's a sort of 'jump' to the other space or cell, see?

    TR = TABLE ROW
    TD = TABLE DATA

    Substitute that hyphen for the data. Easy!It's almost a game. Have a big time with it!
