Cape Hatteras and Kitty Hawk

Looking for anomalies this is about the most famous of them. …

I noticed several years ago that storms leaving North America via Cape Hatteras coincided with earthquakes at Rat Island and several other of the Aleutin chains. It turns out to be true of Anticyclones too.

I didn't realise that Kitty Hawk was just down the road from there. I knew that that was the windiest site in lowland USA. That is why the Wright brothers moved there. They got advice from the Weather Bureau.

Anyway, when I saw that quake in Peru I wondered how far it was from Cape Hatteras. Similarly all those in the swarm at Kamchatka would be the same distance, I suspect. (I still haven't done the homework.)

It when reading a book by Richard Branson on flight that I wondered about how close it was to the cape. After all there has to be some sort of reciprocal anomaly with it all, n'est-ce pas?

-13.79 -72.43 and 52.55 159.79 call them 14.0 South, 70.0 West and 50.0 North and 160 East.

I don't have a map reference for Kitty Hawk (can you believe that?) but it will be interesting to compare tidal times with events on the NEIC and wherever:

Kitty Hawk: 36.1°N 75.7°W -damn that took some finding!

  1. Nice work Mz Mendoza.I don't know from where the storms of the last few days left the USA but the Kamchatka earthquake (50.0 North and 160 East.) was about 80 degrees from Cape Hatteras and Kitty Hawk.The Peruvian one (14.0 South, 70.0 West) was about half of that.What we should see on the Australian charts, the next time such an event is going to occur, is a bulging "ring" of Antarctic isobars extending almost to the tropics. There is such a set up as of 06:00 today (Friday the 24th May 2013) which lasts to the same time (or just under) on Sunday (T + 54.)That's when that line of Lows shows up on the Canadian charts isn't it?I posted something about a line of three Low pressure systems on another blog yesterday. When they are on land and run across the continent of North America in an horizontal straight line, they denote a severe earthquake.With that bulge, I believe they denote volcanic activity along with tornadoes in the USA. Of course on the only occasions I have ever seen such a thing, the bulge has been between 60 and 120 degrees East (the Indian Ocean) I have no idea what the impact of bulges in other oceans will be.It might be an idea for someone to corroborate my suggestion by looking at the archives of tornadoes (NWS servers: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/climo/reports/today.html) and volcanic activity (Smithsonian Archives: http://www.volcano.si.edu/weekly_report.cfm.)Sadly the BOM southern hemisphere charts (http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/viewer/index.shtml?type=mslp-precip&tz=UTC&area=SH&model=G&chartSubmit=Refresh+View) are destroyed on a 6 hourly rota. So unless we can get hold of the algorithms and the analysis data they use, those are lost for eternity.I bet most desktops these day would have no trouble running the models though.
