Hurricanes can be caused by many forces acting upon one anotherThe hurricane
form over ocean water that is 26.5* C. Hurricanes draw their energy from warm
atmosphere must be unstable. The cyclone has to be at most 500 kilometers
from the equator,
because the Coriolis force is not present there. The Coriolis Force makes the
cyclone spiral and
maintain it’s low pressure. A high pressure area must be present above the
pushes away the air that is rising from the storm. Hurricanes may not always
form in these
conditions, but they always have to be present.
Hurricane are categorized into 5 categories, starting with the smallest and
working its way
up to the largest Category I Hurricanes have winds of 118-153, storm surges
of 1.2 meters and
cause very little damage. Category II hurricanes have winds of 154 through
177. Storm surges,
swells, up to 1.7 meters and damage to shrubbery, mobile homes, and small
crafts. Category III
have winds from 178-210, storm surges up to 2.7 meters. Damage is done to
Trees, roofs, mobile
homes, some flooding occurs, and damage is done to roofs. Category IV have
winds from 211-
249. Storm surges get to an amazing 4.0 meters. Damage is done to all signs,
flooding, and evacuation is planned. Category V hurricanes, the most deadly
of all hurricanes has
winds of 250 plus. Enormous surges of 5.5 meters plus and damage is done to
Hurricanes are born in the ocean no more than 500 kilometers from the
water has to be warm and high pressure areas must be present.
Hurricane season affects the eastern coast, the Caribbean, and Central
occurs from June to November, when waters are warm and pressure is high. In
Pacific ocean it can occur year-round.
The hurricane is made up of three different parts. The eye, the eye wall, and
rain bands. The eyes is the center of the hurricane, and is produced by
spiraling of the storm.
Made up of air slowly sinking. It is the lowest surface pressure and warmest
The next area is the eye wall. The area that surrounds the wall is the eye
wall. The eye wall is
made up of air that is rising due to many updrafts and downdrafts. It has the
winds of the storm. The last part of the hurricane is Spiral rain bands.
Spiral rain bands are bands
of heavy showers that move inward toward the storms center.
There are many differences between a Tropical depression, tropical storm,
typhoon, and a hurricane. A Tropical storm is the storm that builds up into
the hurricane and
typhoon A Tropical storm is the storm that builds up into the hurricane and
and Tropical storms occur in the Atlantic oceans, however Tropical storms
occur in both the
Atlantic and the Pacific. Typhoons, on the other hand, occur only in the
depression forms in the ocean to build u to a Tropical storm. A Tropical
storm is the storm that
builds up into the hurricane and typhoon. Hurricanes and Tropical storms
occur in the Atlantic
oceans, however Tropical storms occur in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.
Typhoons, on the
other hand, occur only in the Pacific. The number of all these are increasing
every year. This year
there are more than 11 names hurricanes, and 3 or more major ones predicted.
The most deadly hurricane was the Bangladesh cyclone of 1970, it killed more
300,000 people. The costliest had been Hurricane Andrew in 1992, it cost more
than 25 billion
dollars. The most intense storm was Typhoon Forrest, depended 10 millibars in
under 24 hours.
In one day winds increased from 120 kilometers per hour to 277 in one day.
Hurricanes, typhoons, and tropical storms are all alike in some ways, but
others. They all are terrible forces of nature that have their own way of
contributing to this world.
Even though they may do terrible things to this earth, it does it for a

A Short Overview Of HurricanesA Short Overview Of Hurricanes Hurricanes are powerful atmospheric vortices that are intermediate in size. Hurricanes are unique and powerful weather systems. The word “hurricane” comes from a Caribbean word meaning “big wind”. Views of hurricanes can be seen from a satellite positioned thousands of miles above the earth. Hurricanes originate as tropical disturbances over warm oceans with trade winds. The tropical turbances intensify into tropical depressions, and eventually into a tropical stor
SuperconductivitySuperconductivity Superconductivity is the ability of certain materials to conduct electrical current with no resistance and extremely low losses. This ability to carry large amounts of current can be applied to electric power devices such as motors and generators, and to electricity transmission in power lines. For example, superconductors can carry as much as 100 times the amount of electricity of ordinary copper or aluminum wires of the same size. Scientists had been intrigued with the concep
TornadoesTornadoes Introduction: A tornado is an extremely violent and destructive whirlwind. Each year, hundreds of tornadoes touch the ground causing millions of dollars worth of damage, and claim lives. A tornado is one of natures most awesome displays of power. A tornado extends down from a mass of dark clouds in the form of a whirling funnel and moves over land. The most violent winds on earth are from a tornado, and reach speeds of up to 300 mph. This packet is designed to give information on torna
Tall StoriesTall Stories NEWSCIENCE Picture in your mind the skyline of downtown Toronto. There\'s the CN Tower, of course, and the 72-floor First Canadian Place, the city\'s tallest skyscraper. Cascading from there are the assorted banks and hotels and insurance towers. Now, use your imagination to construct some new buildings, these ones reaching three, four and five times higher than the others. Top it all off with a skyscraper one mile high (three times as high as the CN Tower). Sound fanciful? It did 3
The Life of Rene' DescartesThe Life of Rene\' Descartes Rene\' Descartes was a French mathematician, philosopher and anatomist. He contributed a great deal to modern ideas , particularly those concerned with geometry. He was known in his time as a mechanist, because he believed that nature could be explained through rational means, and inherent patterns could be found. During his life, Descartes remade geometry and made modern geometry possible. Rene\' Descartes was born on March, 31 1596 in La Haye, Touraine, which was a
