Possible Tornado Control

Tornadoes are formed when cold air masses meet warm moist air masses. Thunder storms usually spawn tornadoes. These storms occur in advance of warm moist air in eastward moving cold fronts. These storms create hail, strong winds, and tornadoes. Strong frontal systems often form in the Central U.S. and move eastward in the Winter or early Spring. They frequently form along "Dry Lines" , separating warm moist air from hot dry air in the West. Mesocyclones are often formed. As a mesocyclone reaches the ground,a visible funnel appears to descend from the base of the storm and often form a wall cloud, as it rotates. As the funnel descends,the RFD(rear flank downdraft) reaches the ground, creating a large gust which can in itself cause damage ahead of the tornado.The funnel usually starts as the RFD reaches the the ground. Warm moist inflow fuels the tornado and increases its power to full force. If the RFD or rear downdraft completely wraps around the tornado, it is completely shut down or dispatches it force.This is caused by cooling surface currents. The inflow of the warm air is cut off destroying the tornadoes force.

If the condensation formed winds reach 40 mph(64 km/h) circulation is considered a tornado.The average size in the U.S. is about 500 feet in width(150 m) and remain on the ground about five or more miles. Some have reached more than a mile in width and traveled more than 100 miles distance. A family of tornadoes may be spawned from a single large tornado. Some vortexes may be colorless and others are darker in coloration due to debris that it has picked up in its progress.They usually rotate in a counterclockwise rotation in our Northern Hemisphere. The sound that they make may be like a freight train, a jet airplane, rushing waters,or a series of whining, buzzing or whistling sounds.

They are rated in the Enhanced Fujita Scale or(EF). An EF0 tornado is usually weakest and effects only downing of trees. When the rating reaches 2 or 3, much more structural damage often occurs if the storm strikes a populated area. Most are in the EF0 or EF1 range.On occasion, the storms may reach EF3 or 4 and become much more destructive, in the U.S.

It is my theory that a way to weaken the tornado or stop development may well be utilized.The intensity of such storms may be controlled in their strength, by firing a rocket into the storm and at its development, ahead of its final stage of formation so that the cool air mass on top may not mix with the warm moist air on the bottom of the cycle that forms the tornado. If a sudden intense source of heat from the explosive source(in a form of power great enough)and the heat is introduced into the target area(pinpointed by the use of Doppler Radar facilities)the intensity needed by the storm may not be reached and the tornado may be collapsed.The extreme heights to reach the cold upper air masses will make it safer for a detonation of the charges . This may be like a triggering effect and help reduce the dangers of a possibly more violent storm. It may require more than one launching of a rocket to destroy the cold air mass or contributing factors of the tornado formation. This is only a theory and that is all. The area chosen to test such a theory will require a trial runs over remote areas as to reduce possible injury or destruction of property. The triggering of the explosions will have to be a timed event and use of Doppler Radar is crucial. The correct height above sea level and the critical point in which to detonate the explosive device will be crucial in destroying the cold mass up on top and will weaken the whole formation process. This is a proposal and will have to be explored in all areas of its development. If such a control is established as a vital means to utilize it, then many lives and much property may be spared in the future, as storms may materialize. My illustration will accompany my hub and hopefully it will show how this might be used in future attempts to control weather. These attempts must be done by qualified individuals with meteorological backgrounds and scientist, who well know what they are doing and the dangers involved. It by no means should be ever attempted by anyone who is not trained in scientific investigation. Please do not laugh too hard about this theory, and I hope it may result in more investigation of how to possibly control violent storms.

      I also have seen how large buildings or structures affect air currents near airports and the aircraft often have difficulty in control in these areas. Could the building of towering cement structures along a line and well away from populated areas help divert harmful weather conditions? Again expense is a factor, yet how valuable is human life?

      It has also been an observation that inclement weather and tornadoes are attracted to larger bodies of water, due to cool areas above these waters, Could this weather be manipulated by building reservoirs directing weather away from populated areas? I realize this would be costly but would probably save lives.

      I've learned that seismographs can detect atmospheric pressure before impending tornadoes and may possibly provide a way to track and prepare for the severe weather to come, ahead of the tornadoes formation in an area.
