        Experiments simulating intense vortices associated with tornadoes that occurred on 6 May on the Kanto Plain, Japan, were performed with a nested local ensemble transform Kalman filter (LETKF) system. Intense vortices were reproduced by downscale experiments with a member ensemble in which the initial conditions were obtained from the nested LETKF system analyses.   Topics in Atmospheric and Oceanographic Sciences—Intense Atmospheric Vortices, Proceedings of the Joint Symposium (IUTAM/IUGG), Reading, UK, L.

The apparatus used to generate the plume is the Météotron, an array of fuel oil burners with a total heat output of approximately MW. Three types of vortices have been observed: 1) large counter-rotating rolls in the downstream plume, 2) intense small-scale vortices resembling very strong dust Cited by: Abstract.

Intense vortices are generated by turbulent forcing on a small scale of a fluid body initially in solid body rotation. The vortices extend over the entire depth and their core vorticity can be by a factor of ab and possibly more, larger than the background vorticity, by: 5.

The tornado is the most intense atmospheric vortex, and the most mysterious. Many questions still remain about its formation. The field of tornado dynamics has been reviewed recently by DAVIES-JONES ().

In theoretical work it is generally assumed that the tornado is a vertical vortex, but it is often inclined by: Buy Intense Atmospheric Vortices by Bengtsson, L. (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

If an intense atmospheric vortex occurs over water, a waterspout can be formed, as illustrated in Figures and In essence, a waterspout is the visible columnar vortex formed if a tornado passes over water.

However, waterspouts can also be formed by weaker whirlwinds. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA The initial intensity of the wake vortices is determined by the weight, speed, configuration, wingspan and angle of attack of the aircraft.

[1] The development of dust devillike vortices in the atmospheric convective boundary layer (CBL) is studied using large-eddy simulation (LES).

Special focus is placed on the analysis of the spatial structure of the vortices, the vorticity-generating mechanisms, and how the vortices depend on the larger-scale coherent near-surface flow pattern of the CBL. of Intense Atmospheric Vortices.

Roughly speaking, following Descartes, a vortex is an entity which makes particles move along circular-like orbits. Examples are the cyclones and anticyclones in the atmosphere (see Figure 3). Mathematically speaking, let u u, v, w R 3 be a velocity field, the.

IntroductionThis paper addresses fluid dynamics of the intense atmospheric vortices, which for decades has been in the focus of interest of many fluid dynamists and meteorologists (cf.

Bengtsson and Lighthill, ). In addition to the vortex models earlier proposed in the literature (e. Lugt, ), an asymptotic solution of inviscid Boussinesq equations for a dry convective Rankine.

Nevertheless, the model may be studied analytically. This property extends the possibilities of analysis of the dynamics of the boundary layers of the intense atmospheric vortices. In particular, the Ooyama's () formula for the vertical velocity at the top of the boundary layer follows from the present model.

The model provides the Cited by: 5. Intense atmospheric vortices are characterized by a regime of cyclostrophic balance, i.the balance between the pressure gradient and centrifugal force.

Wingtip vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift. One wingtip vortex trails from the tip of each wing. Wingtip vortices are sometimes named trailing or lift-induced vortices because they also occur at points other than at the wing tips.

Indeed, vorticity is trailed at any point on the wing where the lift varies span-wise (a fact described and. Daily rainfall in southern West Africa (48° N, 7° W3° E) is analyzed with the aim of documenting the intense rainfall events which occur in coastal Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, and Benin.

The daily 99th percentile (P99) shows that the coastline experiences higher intensity rainfall than inland areas. Using Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) rainfall data for ndash;, a.

Vortices are structures observed in planets with atmospheres. Earth, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. On Earth, these atmospheric vortices are called cyclones and anticyclones.

A cyclone or Low is a storm or a system of winds that rotates around a centre of low atmospheric. Considering that few studies focused on intense rainfall within the QB, there is an urgent need to understand the mechanisms governing intense rainfall in this region.

A type of Tibetan Plateau vortex (TPV) associated intense rainfall within the QB was investigated in this study, which partly fills the existing research gaps in the field.

Like a teenager, Neptunes surface is occasionally plagued with Great Dark Spots (GDS). First observed in by NASAs Voyager 2 space probe, the first GDS was a cyclone the size of Earth raging in Neptunes southern hemisphere with winds of 2, kilometers per hour (1, mph), the fastest winds recorded in the solar system to date.

October is my favorite time to be alive, as it contains all of my favorite things: crunchy leaves, sweater. Polar mesocyclones (MCs) are small marine atmospheric vortices.

The class of intense MCs, called polar lows, are accompanied by extremely strong surface winds and heat fluxes and thus largely.

While the tilting of horizontal vortex lines produces vortex couplets of opposite signs, cyclonic-only MVs had been also observed within QLCSs—for example, within the 24 October squall-line bow echo (Wheatley and Trapp ).

The release of horizontal shearing instability was used to explain the formation of cyclonic-only MVs.
