From the previous thread:
There is a triangle of warm brine residue from the once powerful storm. The idea for this began as a curio when I couldn’t find how much salt falls out of a storm. It turns out to be 7billion tons per day in a relatively small tropical storm but my maths is terrible and I had to work it all out myself.
This was based on the rainfall calculations of someone in 1981, an era when satellite data was attempted (and measurements failed badly.)
A 1981 paper by meteorologist William Gray provides a statistic for the rainfall produced by a typical hurricane. Such a storm sheds about 1.5 centimeters (0.6 inches) of rain daily across a circular area with a 665-kilometer (414-mile) radius. Volume-wise, this translates to 2.1 x 10^16 cubic centimeters (1.3 x 10^15 cubic inches) per day. A given hurricane, of course, may be more or less rainy: Hurricane Amelia, for example, was the rainiest yet to strike the United States since 1956, dumping 1.2 meters (48 inches) along its Texas route in 1978.
There are about 35 grams of salt in a litre of water but I have no idea how many noughts there are in 10^16 cubic centimeters. Is it 16 or 17?
However many tons it turns out to be Some of the cyclones in Antarctica are larger than Australia but in those storms if they are anything like North Atlantic ones they only require 3 degree difference in the temperature to kick off. Those are the facts as best I know them. I have done no more research into any of this that look at the charts and ask god what is going on.
I may be jumping to a wrong conclusion but the answer seems to fit the life cycles of storms. Storms die immediately they reach their peak performance so the old saying:
LONG FORETOLD—LONG LAST, SHORT NOTICE—SOON PAST.
The stronger the winds the sooner it dies because the salt is falling too far away. Low energy storms seem to be able to last just as long as the powerful ones. Something reflected in the North Atlantic charts:
Large cyclones in the North Atlantic indicate tropical storms of up to Category 3. Large anticyclones indicate large tropical storms of Category 4 or 5. (the development of a complex systemas the one above indicates a volcanc eruption. And the appearances of sets of parallel weather fronts, indicate earthquake swarms.
In fact on a large enough chart you can follow the fronts to the likely epicentres. This connectedness is called teleconnection and the fact that several parts of the world experience simultaneous extreme weather phenomena points to a shared first cause. However it is the belief system of contemporary meteorology that weather causes weather and that knock=on effects are caused by memory somehow.
Don’t ask me how weather manages to remember what it is doing. The moving finger writes and having writ moves on. One problem with that idea is that a system of fluids in motion is subject to containment. Gas in particular is subject to instantaneous cause and effect. It doesn’t roll along like a solid falling downhill. Temperature/pressure laws are immediate and produce the diminishing returns of shock absorbers. Energy does not pass through it in straight lines.
In fact whilst parts of the planet are suffering severe flooding, at the same time and for the same reasons there are other parts of the world enduring severe drought. Something must be arranging all these phenomena to happen.
I woke up this morning and quickly became aware of a distant quiet hiss in my back-ground. Besides being tinnitus I realised it was the sound of a distant volcano that I was hearing.
Confirmed as I sat in front of the computer and saw purple clouds crossing over the roofs of the houses opposite blown in from the south west on the weather front. I don’t know about the rest of the country but here in Stoke the rain that has fallen over the last year or two has been light drizzle with the occasional shower.
That is because the weather with volcanoes is misty with inclinations of snow, brought about by a mixture of weather systems.That i had seen in the forecasts from yesterday and was now looking at in the Atlantic chart above. As if further proof were needed here is the description of a Blocking Low during a volcanic erution:
The mosr obvius characteristic is a twin core, the next is the inherent instability of such systems as they vie for dominance. Something for want of a more apt scientific term that I call contra rotation. Such rotations are particularly obvious in the BoM models and in the North Pacific with this one:

The final kick in the pants is the appearance of the weather fronts that ALWAYS follow such activity:
I wonder if I will live long enough for my tinnitus to get worse. Would you believe I am looking forward to it?
it is better than the alternative.
