      he drought in the Atlantic SW from the dams on
      the Orinoco and West Africa finally ended w/ the
      flaring event and Allison. But as it did end w/ Allison,
      there was three years worth of biological material that
      got washed into the eastern Gulf and the proximate
      North Atlantic, and this really is why there was enough
      for Barry to flare up and cause even more cirrus
      enhancement, including drawing up some cirrus enhancement from
      the Carribean, something that hasn't happened w/ how
      sed and flow is delayed relative to the Orinoco until
      much later in the year.<br><br>Of course, while the
      recent prolific dam activity, especially in developing
      nations, reduces the amount of CO2 and H2 in the oceans,
      and at the same time cools the ocean SSTs so they
      "sink" relatively more CO2 out of the air, human fossil
      fuel emissions continue to rise unabated, and CO2 is
      methanogen food. Between high levels of CO2 causing a GHG
      effect and high levels of CO2 causing year round greater
      methanogen activity, the situation is there for cirrus
      enhancement despite the lack of spring time sed and flow
      rates from dammed up rivers. It is interesting to note
      that cyclonic activity occurs when seasonal winds are
      not as strong, but these cyclones also provide cirrus
      enhancing westward conducting currents. In 10 or so years,
      however, I think no one will mistake the incredible cirrus
      enhancement from CO2 as methanogen foods as some of the
      recent dams start to produce more reasonable sed and
      flow rates, much like the Rio, Mississippi, and
      Colorado have adjusted since the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.
      As this happens, no one will be making a red herring
      argument about the troposphere, because it will be on fire
      everywhere.

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
