    I would have loved to have pix like these when teaching meterology to grade 11 students 30 years ago.

    “[R]esearchers are gathering data to study how and why some storms turn into massive monsters while others dwindle away to nothing.”

    Serious researchers here may want to down their blinkers awhile to see what could basically be causing some hurricanes to turn destructively “massive” when others could dwindle harmlessly away.
    As the English would say, we North Americans drive on the “wrong” side of the road. Unfortunately, this right-handed swirl of the atmospheric mass rising from our (two-way) highways could also feed and nourish our hurricanes. Though reversing this traffic flow on our highways could take a larger toll on lives in accidents, we will have to look at other avenues to nip hurricanes preferably in the bud. On that subject, a paper was submitted to Science, which, I hope, readers here would not find too impractical:

    Thank you all for your time, and Cheers!

    I would like to see the pictures of a plane that goes up to 60,000 feet to take some of these pictures. I’m impressed with that capability.

    Abnormal this put up is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, however it used to be indexed about the initial page. I think your performing something right if Google likes you adequate to place you at the first internet page of the non similar search.
