That West African wave has significant EMF implications on Kyle. That
is because when a land to ocean storm hits the oceans the ionosphere
will be depleted of electrons above the storm and the capacitive
dynamic favors negative EMF to ground. When the ocean is there
instead that negative charge is distributed along the highly
conductive thermohaline of the Gulf Stream and energizes the ITCZ w/
the fair weather voltages of the equatorial waters.
Interestingly, south of Kyle dry, fair weather areas support strong
positive voltages to ground, while Kyle himself is EMF unstabile in
But this link is very dated and if you can't get it right after I
post it is probably not going to show the near warm core strikes.
Now, while Lili became EMF unstable and WEAKENED as back EMF from
day to night caused dry air to be entrained w/out cirrus enhanced
convection, Lili was well organized from an EMF standpoint and had
benefitted from a blow up -- that occurred during a very strong earth
Kyle, OTOH, by heavy strike activity, is creating the positive ion
concentrations above the area, yes, in an extra tropical manner, not
centered by an EMF of negative voltages, but the region in the
ionosphere above the storm becomes more positively charged. This
enhances cirrus cloud attractions to this area.
A real EMF problem would exist with Kyle if those strike voltages had
no where to go. That is because the charge separations in the clouds
I have been describing require a positive ion concentration on the
surface to draw negative ions to the lower clouds. HOWEVER, given the
fair weather voltages and the super conductivity of the Gulf Stream,
those strike voltages most assuredly flow south through the Gulf
Stream to the fair weather areas. This allows the storm to move north
over water that remains positively charged and have an ionosphere
that remains positively charged from strike depletion.
The storm is further EMF defined by the Doran wave activity occurring
between itself and the front. This activity has become much more
significant than the further EMF activity in the W. GOM. So he is
behaving, finally, like Alberto again, as I described in April. What
I didn't know in April was HOW GAIA active the GOM was going to be.
Anyway, the SOI is dropping a bit and that must mean the CME activity
is slowing--but I haven't seen B-1's report yet tonight, so I will
get this information to everyone when he reports.
The EMF direction of this storm would appear to be along the Gulf
Stream. It will survive the night because of the Africa wave, and
probably will remain out to sea. I wouldn't be surprised if it
becomes a CAT 1 out to sea and should bring some rain to the NE from
Doran wave activity on the front, but that's about it. This is a very
Gaia poor hydrology in the NE.
The colder waters to the NW of the storm only aid it from an EMF
standpoint. That is because coriolis forces acting on winds drawn to
the surface lows will cause a curvature to the right, and the cold
air means it falls toward the surface and brings surface currents and
hence induction from east to west, that enhance an electron vector in
and upward direction. This causes cirrus enhancement BIGTIME.
This is exactly where the strongest winds from Kyle have been, to his
This induction occurs just as he sits over warm waters that offer
strong conductivity and convection possibilities. This storm will
grow in intensity, despite a negative SOI--which is really and EMF
event too far away from the EMF dynamic of Kyle to really
significantly matter now.
And I think I am starting to understand the induction connection
better. If you have a fair weather area with a vector of electrons
skyward, the protons to ground are going to flow quite strongly.
This would mean that the ionsphere above would contain more net
negative charges and hence be an ionospheric Doran wave adjacent to
the area of convection. Does this make any sense to anyone?
