      Many of you have now read about the China paper on elongated clouds
      in DC fields. What an asymetrical ice growth would mean is in a
      strong capacitive coupling between inosphere and ocean inside the eye
      of a hurricane, ice forms slower, and hence its phase change energies
      don't come as fast, and the air relatively loses water vapor to more
      explosive areas of cirrus growth. Those areas give phase change
      energies to their nearby air mass, and the air rises--explosively.
      That is why hurricanes have surface lows. The air inside the
      mesovortices will relatively cool and not give phase change energies,
      which is what causes the vortices, but it isn't the same as the
      explosive formations from cloud organizations. Here is the link to
      that paper:

      As you all know, hurricanes have large EMF field transients above
      their eyes--and open air is a smaller dielectric than water. Now to
      see with your own eyes WTF I am talking about:

      Notice the anomalies coming from the eye--those are the mesovertices
      from Hurricane Isabel on September 12, 2003.


      But please check out the picture from September 13, 2003. The Air
      Force Reserve Hurricane Hunters made 39 center fixes during Isabel.
      The NOAA Hurricane Hunters made two formal center fixes and flew
      seven research missions into the storm. The highest winds measured by
      the aircraft were 158 kt (Air Force at 700 mb) and 157 kt (NOAA at
      8400 ft) between 1700-1730 UTC 13 September. A 156-kt flight-level
      wind (700 mb) was also observed at 1719 UTC 12 September. _Stronger
      winds were observed on eyewall dropsondes, with a maximum of 203 kt
      reported at 806 mb (4500 ft) at 1753 UTC 13 September. This is the
      strongest wind ever observed in an Atlantic hurricane, although it
      likely does not represent a 1-min average. Given the multiple
      mesovortices, if you think of those like tornadoes, even 300mph isn't
      that hard to believe! That speed in kts represents a MPH wind speed
      of 233.45 MPH. Here's the 13th when those record readings were made:

      What you should notice about the mesovortices from an IR standpoint
      is the symetry. The circle of the eye relates to the electrical
      charge organization of the storm inside the eye. This organization
      comes from the fact that the roiling winds are in somewhat of a
      circular path--and gas exchanges increase conductivities and the eye
      itself offers a dielectric of air compared to water. What you see
      very clearly from these images is a point POSITIVE ion event, with
      the negative voltages in the ionosphere above the storm in a ring,
      yet still inside the eye. The mesovortices conform to this
      organization. The storm becomes progressively ellipse as opposed to
      circular the further away from the electrically organizing center the
      cirrus disk is.

      Because the main forcing in climate is ELECTRICAL, as so demonstrated
      above, this has profound implications on Gaia theory and abiogenesis--
      the topic of discussion here.

      I like this Hartmann/Fu paper best. Check out figure on page 22
      entitled Net Cloud Radiative forcing. This tells you how important
      cloud dynamics are in heat dynamics.

      Thankfully, the complexities of cloud heat retentions is simplyfied,
      visually, by IR loops. I use them all the time to seen how the EMF is
      altering cirrus when watching a hurricane real time.


      Strikes do not occur in cirrus disk, because one, dielectric of water
      in disk eighty times that of air in cyclops eye, and charge
      seperations from convection bringing positive voltages to upper cloud
      mass finds a relatively more positive ionosphere and lower cloud with
      negative chages finds relatively negative charges on ocean surface.
      Cirrus in the disk are levitated in displacement current. This
      occurrance can even be seen in smaller scale in the 5 vortices and
      thinner but clearly seen cirrus cover inside the eye highlighting the
      vortices. The center of each of the vortices is clear of clouds, and
      the IR picture appears as 5 circles in a circle, with, again, the
      dielectric difference between air and water playing the part in where
      the capacitive coupling takes place. If a coupling takes place, the
      orientation of cirrus is to cause them be inside a field which
      prevents cloud nucleation and cirrus heat trapping feedbacks.

      There is little or no strike activity inside a hurricane.

      "When supercooled water and ice crystals occur at the same location,
      the ice grows at the expense of the water, and an ice cloud forms.
      This occurs because at a given temperature ice has a greater affinity
      than liquid water for water vapor. Cloud droplets and ice crystals
      first form on certain types of small particles of dust or other
      airborne materials. They are called condensation nuclei when water
      droplets are formed and ice nuclei when ice crystals result. The
      nuclei generally range in size from as small as 0.01 micrometer to
      about 1 micrometer (4/10,000,000 to 4/100,000 inch). The number of
      nuclei vary widely, depending on the source of the air mass in which
      the parcel is imbedded. The atmosphere over the ocean generally has
      the lowest number of nuclei, whereas polluted air has the highest.
      The more nuclei, and therefore the more water droplets or ice
      crystals, the slower the process of formation of precipitation-sized
      particles, because the competition for the available water is
      greater. Thus, although Rain often falls shortly after a cloud forms
      over the ocean, a much longer time is required over continental
      areas."
