      Last night as east side of the storm landfell, on the west side, just
      20 miles from Galveston, a person who was in an evacuated small town
      was interviewed by CNN and reported no rain and winds at less than
      ten miles per hour. Meanwhile, those the same distance the other way
      from the center were getting slammed. Aaron Brown then asked the
      meteorologist why this was so. The meteorologist gave the stock
      answer, that friction on the land was the cause of this phenomenon.
      It has turned out that Galveston, in the path of the greater storm
      but on the west side of it, largely escaped much damage. Meanwhile,
      the effects as far away as New Orleans was a levy giving way again,
      and flooding rains there. I would like to explain why from an EMF
      standpoint the 'friction' theory is really a myth about the dirty
      side of a landfalling storm.

      Keep in mind that this storm landfell in an area without mountains,
      where the ocean itself had 20 foot surge and huge waves on top of
      that. The ocean isn't perfectly flat, nor does it lack material
      to 'push' and cause friction with. This storm, as a low SOx storm,
      was higher up with its most intense winds anyway. There are other
      reasons to remain highly skeptical of the 'friction' theory.


      As you may surmise, my premise is that the so called dirty side of a
      hurricane is organized more by electrical field considerations
      compared to the weak side. Again, I go back to exactly what I mean
      by a tropical storm is in the first place. There is an electrical
      field organization that per the China paper causes cloud microphysics
      changes, viscosity changes, diffusion of water vapor in an organized
      way, linking electrical to baratropical.

      Note ion concentrations are relative but each level has relative
      static fields to each other.

      Water vapor is added to the droplet, and that addition occurs one
      molecule at a time. What may be overlooked by the meteorological
      community is that water itself is electrical. Weakly electrical, but
      electrical none the less. This electrical force is called van der
      Walls force. It's the idea that the hydrogen atoms will tend to lose
      their electron orbitals more easily than the oxigen atom. So it looks
      like this:

      The basic problem w/ the baratropical models is viscosity--
      turbulance. The time SCALE of about 5 days the EFFECT of cloud
      microphysics differences between those in strong DC fields and those
      not predominates. The China paper shows that in DC fields of actually
      smaller voltages than those in that paper in the there are
      microphysics changes in hurricanes:

      [quote]"The effects of electric field on ice crystal growth had been
      numerically discussed by Scishcheve and Kusalike6-7. They announced
      that the strength of an electric field able to change the ice lattice
      from normal ice(Ih) to cubic ice (Ic) should be at least 10 to the
      5th kV/m [fair weather voltages are about 10 to the -1 k volts per
      meter]. However, the strength of the electric field used in our
      experiments was only 1/400 of the 10 to the 5th kV/m [fair weather
      voltages would be on order of 1/1,000,000 of these voltages, whereas
      w/ tropical storm transiants above the eye given dielectrical
      differences between eye and cloud disk, the transiant ratios would be
      similar to the experiments]. Thus, the morphological change of the
      ice in this study was not caused by the ice lattice change. Without
      the electric field, the crystal growth process could be considered as
      a process whereby the water molecules are added one by one to the
      crystal lattice. This 'adding' process has normally the same
      probability in all directions, and leads to the formation of the
      symmetric ice crystal [figure omitted]. However, when a high voltage
      field is applied, the electric field may cause different molecules in
      the DMSO solution [what should be noted is rain water has a similar
      pH of about 5.6--of course salt spray in a hurricane would have an
      even greater ion content] to exhibit different behaviors. The polar
      water molecules/clusters may be torqued and rearranged under the
      action of the electric field and forced to joining the lattice in a
      special orientation and position. Hence, different growth rates occur
      in different directions and the ice crystal becomes asymmetric. Under
      the action of an electric field, the water molecules may rearrange
      and line up end to end in the direction of the electric field. In
      viewing the crystal structure, this well-ordered water
      molecules/clusters seems like crystal or quasi-crystallines. In this
      case the water molecules/clusters possess an ideal situation for
      rapid crystal growth. That may be the reason why the main branches,
      which are parallel to the direction of the electric field, grow
      faster than the other branches." [/quote]



      (The China paper link is correct. However if you re access it you
      have to erase your temperary internet files directory, because it has
      a computer feature which causes that error if you re access it.
      Probably to deal with bandwidth accessing and reaccessing that
      paper . . .)
      Essentially the cloud droplet in super cooling has its shape changed
      in the electromagentic field, and that's due to the ions migrating in
      the droplet and the rate of freezing and the rate that new water is
      added to the droplet. Shape in particular impacts the latter. This
      has a number if significant implications.

      For instance, if there is relative asymmetry between cloud
      microphysics in one area compared to the next, the more asymmetrical
      forming clouds will tend to sink, subsist, while the symmetrical
      forming clouds in convecting will have a warming and therefore rising
      air mass. As that air rises, it reaches colder cloud tops and that
      causes further convection until the droplet becomes under the
      influence of gravity and falls down as rain. Meanwhile in the
      subsisting area the pressure will rise and compress, and falling air
      meets warmer and higher pressure air and this decreases convection.
      Together, this model presents why intense 'dirty' winds exist in the
      first place by circulating between these states.

      Now, the difference between 'dirty' side of a storm can be
      explained. This is done by looking at not the vertical patterns
      described and shown by schematic above, but by the horizontal
      patters. If the storm is perfectly over open water, the static fields
      set up with circular orders:

      ............................+

      These organizations largely owe to the fact that static fields as
      described by Coulomb's law experience a different 'k' value between
      water and air, where then the electrical impact on cloud microphysics
      is organized by the water organization of an existing storm and a
      feedback occurs that self organized it.

      However, as the storm landfalls, there is a huge difference between
      the conductivity of land and the conductivity of saltwater Gulf or
      Ocean. That difference causes organization of the banding features
      that keeps the storm organized electrically on the 'dirty' side of
      the storm, but not the off shore side. As I write this, Morgan City
      is getting hit by exactly these dirty bands. From a schematics
      standpoint, this is what the dirty band looks like:

      Dirty Band static field from lower ionosphere

      @@@@@@@@@@@@ Over Land
      . . - + -
      . .- + -
      . - + -
      .- + -
      - + -


      Clouds (with higher static field blocking 'k' value)

      @@@@@@@@@@@ Over Land
      . . * . *
      . .* . *
      . * + *

      . . + - +
      . .+ - +
      . + - +
      .+ - +
      + - +

      From the link http://www.lightningstorm.com I cut and pasted free for
      the viewing at the title page at landfall the strikes from a feeder
      band which all went along the pattern exactly as described above

      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/methanehydrateclub/

      These feeder bands on the dirty side have water vapor that then
      diffuses from the asymmetrically causing DC fields to cloud
      microphysics to those bands, and those bands are protected by their
      own water content from the DC fields, and that causes there to be
      relatively more water vapor and for there to be explosive convection,
      which causes uplift into the colder air, and subsistance between the
      bands. That's exactly why the winds die down between the bands!
      This is all an electrical based phenomenon.
