      This is extremely interesting with respect to
      methane hydrates, that have a similar dynamic, similar
      supercooling and superheating issues. In short, after thinking
      about it, it appeared to me that the oceans are a giant
      living battery that exchange energy not just in terms of
      heat energy but also electrical energy. And river flow
      and sedimentation change the charge, just like adding
      water or acid to your battery. The oceans can overheat,
      just like a poorly circuited battery. Likewise, the
      moon earth tidal dynamic that Keeling and Whorf
      describe would alter this electrical dynamic, by changing
      the pressures on the phase stabilities. Hurricanes
      depressurizing methane hydrates at the eye--same issues.
      <br><br>Measuring the electrical field of a tornadic storm is a
      difficult task, but I Williams is on to something, even if
      he is looking too narrowly where to find the answer.
      What is more interesting about his idea to measure the
      storm themselves for electrical potentials is not for
      supposed local detection, but for what would cause such
      potentials on a broader scale. For that matter, what causes
      rain?<br><br>If indeed tornado genesis is due to two separate
      force systems acting in opposition to each other, where
      one force was an electrical one, his theory of
      seperate forces is a powerful notion all by itself.
      <br><br>In the Spring in Tornado Alley tornado activity is
      unlike any place in the world. Assuming that this is the
      place on earth where a combination of both forces
      occur, and the mechanical force is related to the jet,
      the question then becomes where does the electrical
      part stem. And since we know that the flow is of warm
      tropical moisture north, then we can say that the source
      of the electical part is from the oceans . . .

        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
