Hello folks! Happy off-season to you.. There are some very interesting developments taking place S of the Equator in the Atlantic Ocean. Could it be, the (correction "third") ever-recorded Tropical Cyclone to be observed down there is to take place so soon after the first, "Cyclone Catarina" - March, 2004?
For the shocking rarity of having those ledger-ed (should it be deemed so) twice in such brief geologic time span, this will likely have profound implications for the notoriety, as well as for Global climate change. I tried originally to post a visible image here but it was too large and tried to take over the screen area... I am in the process of finding new ones and microwave imagery of that region of the Globe, but I am having some difficulties...As soon as I am successful, I may update this. I am also attempting to find synoptic schemas for that region as well.
It is certainly 'tentatively' beginning to appear as though the "Atlantic Season", has an emergent property of being perennial phenomena! Already, such studies have been and continued to be plied: "Climate change scientists, working in the Met Office Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research, recognize this as a feature they see in their climate model. In a world made warmer by increased greenhouse gasses, their model shows that this is one of the areas to watch in the future as there may indeed be more tropical storms for the South Atlantic."
The frequency of the typical tropical waves that we see traverse the N Atlantic during our tropical seasons do not have enough of the spatial-temporal significance out amid the areas between Africa and South America. This concept is intimated above. Rather, these types of events are likely developed by similar phenomena as Clark was covering, regarding trough interaction with residual disturbances.. In fact, they may even be born of the ends of troughs that situate over tropical SSTs; with perhaps truth plied to the notion that SST are indeed in a multiple decadal upward swing. This is a fascinating time to be tropical weather enthusiasts, as we seem to be on the verge of literally morphing an entire oceanic basin into a new paradigm of potentials.
