ATMOSPHERIC WEATHER CELLS MAY be used as MODELS for CORIOLIS ROTATIONS and EARTH TIDES IN CRUST
BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF "ATMOSPHERIC TIDES", WHICH ILLUSTRATE THE PRINCIPLE THAT CORIOLIS FORCE, POLAR WOBBLE, AND MILANKOVITCH-TYPE CYCLES AFFECT NOT ONLY THE CLIMATE, BUT ALSO THE DAILY WEATHER, THE CURRENTS IN THE SEAS, AND THE CRUST BELOW ALL THIS. ATMOSPHERIC MOVEMENTS ARE RELATIVELY FAST- DUE TO THE LOW VISCOSITY COMPARED TO THAT IN WATER OR RESISTANT ROCK. THE AIR MOVEMENTS ARE AT LEAST 10 EXPONENT 8 TIMES FASTER THAN THOSE IN ROCK (AIR:WATER:ROCK= 1:100:10 EXPONENT 10 RATIOS).
A ROUGH CALCULATION OF THE DAILY RATE OF UPPER AIR MOVEMENT MAY BE CALCULATED FROM THE BELOW PHOTO FROM SPACE: DURING THE PERIOD OF 50 HOURS SINCE THE LATER PHOTO WAS TAKEN, THE JET STREAM HAS CREATED A LARGER DIAMETER CIRCLE AND HAS MOVED 80KM/HR OR 50MPH. THIS TRANSLATES INTO 7 X 10EXP 5 KM/YR. THE RATIO OF EARTH TIDE MOVEMENT TO ATMOSPHERIC MOVEMENT IS APPROXIMATELY 7.85 X 10EXP -10 (INVERSELY, 1/3 X 10EXP 8 TIMES AS FAST).
THE ABOVE PHOTO FROM SPACE INDICATES THAT SOME FEATURES, SUCH AS ISLAND ARRAYS, CROSS THE EQUATOR. HENCE DYNAMICS OTHER THAN CORIOLIS EFFECTS ARE INVOLVED:
Confirmation of Ocean Basin dynamics via Summer and Winter Coriolis Behavior
A valuable tool for use with Coriolis analyses is that of the atmosphere- which is subject to the same Earth Dynamics as the Crust of the Earth. Although the atmosphere touches only the sea bottom and the continents (AND NOT THE MANTLE), WEATHER-RELATED CELLS are initiated by the same forces from the SPIN OF THE EARTH. The crust touches both the ATMOSPHERE AND MANTLE, and if you believe that the principal motions of the crust are due to Coriolis effects, then you only have to concern yourself that the Mantle is forcing the base of the crust eastward (since it is rotating a bit faster than the crust, with its greater distance from the tidal influence of the MOON). There are other dynamic influences on the rotating crust: BULGES SUBJECT TO EARTH TIDES (SIMILAR TO MOUNTAIN CHAINS), CONTRACTION OF THE EARTH AS ITS SPIN RATE SLOWS, GEO-MAGNETIC PULSING AND STRIPING, AND ASTEROID STRIKES. The last two categories are out of my ability to analyze, and we will concern ourselves with the first 2 categories- tidal slowing of protrusions and contraction of the earth with length of day (LOD). The crust re-arranges itself (OTHER THAN BY CORIOLIS ROTATION- THE PRIMARY INFLUENCE) due to MANTLE DRAG AND MOUNTAIN-AUGMENTED CRUSTAL SHEAR (MAD-MACS).
NOW LOOK AT A VIEW FROM SPACE, ORBITING OVER A FIXED POSITION, SO THAT WEATHER CELLS MAY BE EXAMINED OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN- THEIR BREEDING GROUND (INDICATING THEIR INCIPIENCE, NOT THEIR LATER INTERACTION WITH TERRAIN):
This photo was taken with a FULL MOON, SO THAT BOTH MOON AND SUN ARE ATTRACTING (MORE SO THAN AT OTHER DAYS) THE EARTH NEAR THE EQUATOR. HIGH AND LOW CLOUDS REFER TO ALTITUDE, AND NOT HIGH PRESSURE. NOTE THAT THE HIGH CLOUDS CROSS OVER THE WEATHER CLOUDS, CONTINUING ACROSS THE EQUATOR. THIS MEANS THAT CORIOLIS IS NOT THE DRIVING FORCE; RATHER THE MOON OR THE SUN IS CREATING UPLIFT ON LOCATIONS EXHIBITING ISLAND ARRAYS. WE WILL TRY TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE MOON ALONE IS ABLE BY ITS SMALL ANGLE WITH THE ECLIPTIC, TO PULL ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE EQUATOR MORE SO THAN ON THE NORTH SIDE. POSSIBLY THE ADDITION OF THE SUN'S GRAVITATIONAL PULL HELPS THIS BEHAVIOR, AND POSSIBLY THE SUN CREATES THE CIRCLE OF SEAMOUNTS NOTICED ALONG THE TROPIC OF CAPRICORN.
Below is a diagram which simplifies the annual path of the EARTH-MOON DUO, as it SPIRALS IN THE CONFIGURATION OF A SCREW or VORTEX. We will try to answer two QUESTIONS:
1. DOES THE EARTH PRESENT THE FACE OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC TO THE MOON THROUGHOUT MOST MID-DAYS OF THE YEAR (compared relatively, to the North Pacific); and,
2. IS THERE A RIGHT-HANDED SCREW OVER THE MONTHLY PERIOD (ROTATING, LIKE A TWIST WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND- CLOCKWISE)?
AGAIN, A COMPARISON WITH WEATHER PATTERNS FROM A SPACE VIEW ARE COMPARED WITH THE TREND OF SEAMOUNTS IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN:
BELOW ARE TWO PHOTOS FROM SPACE, SHOWING HOURLY CLOUD CHANGES FOR THE PACIFIC:
Island Arcs and Linears in the South Pacific
There are arrays of islands in the South Pacific eastward until reaching Easter Island (compared to almost none east of Hawaii- in the North Pacific). This ignores the islands close to South America, SA, such as Islas Juan Fernandez, and more importantly, Galapagos at the Equator; but more on these later. These arrays exhibit great circles when viewed on a larger scale. At close Range, a portion of a circular configuration appears to be a LINEAR, and the curvature of the earth is involved, so that for geographical purposes we can not easily distinguish these features in the field.
The question to ask, concerning these arrays is: What is the incipience of these arrangements? According to the above photos of weather cells, there are similar arrangements of clouds, which are taken at times during the day when the sun is overhead (or nearly so), and which clearly are the result of HEATING. However, when the same portraits are seen during earlier and later hours, and they remain, this indicates that the movement of the sun overhead has little effect on the portrait! It is expected that the daily movement of the sun from east to west would create a moving circle of cloud arrangement, and this is true for continents. However, over the Pacific, it appears that there is an arrangement which is maintained, regardless of sun movement. Notice the CIRCLE OF CLOUDS, WHICH ENCIRCLES THE SOUTH PACIFIC, CROSSING THE EQUATOR.
The Moon is involved in this arrangement, so that until we can determine whether it attracts the CRUST SOUTH OF THE EQUATOR MORE THAN THAT IN THE NORTH, we can’t be sure that the portrait of circular islands is due to the moon, the sun, or to a combination of the two. However, there are at least two of these circum-Pacific arrays, so that possibly one is due to the sun (where the south border of the circle is near the TROPIC OF CAPRICORN). The moon-earth center of mass lies in the earth’s mantle, and the helix made by the monthly spiral about the ECLIPTIC could attract the crust south of the equator more than in the north- creating this mass of islands in the South Pacific Ocean. The arrangement is not altogether linear there, but exhibits islands over a large area. This is probably a rising area, created by attraction of spatial masses- either sun or moon. This is strongly indicated by the way in which the cloud pattern diverts around the array of islands- indicating a bulge in the EARTH’S CRUST.
PHOTO ABOVE INDICATES THAT THERE IS CIRCULATION OF WEATHER CELLS, WHICH ARE SOMEWHAT INDEPENDANT OF THE SUN'S POSITION, REMAINING DAILY! THIS IS SURPRISING, BUT IS SIMILAR TO THE ARRAY OF SMALL ISLANDS BETWEEN THE TONGA TRENCH AND S. AMERICA.
ANOTHER FACET TO CONSIDER IS THAT OF THE SHAPE OF THE GLOBE,IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC- THAT OF A PEAR-SHAPED EARTH: NOTE THAT THE SHAPE OF THE GLOBE INFLUENCES NOT ONLY THE WEATHER, BUT THE EMERGENCE OF SOUTH PACIFIC ISLANDS. WE WILL TRY TO DISCERN THE IMPETUS OF THIS RISE- IS IT DUE TO THE HELICAL PATH OF THE MOON ABOUT THE ECLIPTIC, OR IS THE SUN INVOLVED?
THIS ANALYSIS WILL BE CONTINUED; SCROLL DOWN FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO MORE UNDERSTANDING:
