It’s been almost a year sinse the west coast evacuation scare at pisgah crater and now that monsoon season kicks in this week. It’s gonna get real fun as we hear more false alarms about fake volcano eruptions from the dis-info weather haarp ring expert again soon.
Let’s not forget that the Super Derecho began forming over MN and WI on the 29th and the jet stream carried the smoke mixed with thunderstorms on it’s way to the east coast. By early afternoon the solar convection and deadly heat wave kicked off the perfect storm conditions ovar IN.
A new study shows that intense wild fires taking place in nature can also influence the atmosphere into producing massive thunderstorms. Scientists determined that the storms which are formed in this manner take place at higher altitudes than normal storms. I don’t see our resident dis-info haarp ring plume of doom weather guy detailing anything on this subject with the steam plume bullshit lately. Once again accu-weather is on top of the radar anomaly thing too.
One of the most interesting conclusions of the new research is the fact that these types of thunderstorms appear to occur very often, much more so than experts first calculated. The study was presented Monday, August 9, in Brazil, at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU).
The particular class of thunderstorms caused by wildfires is called pyrocumulonimbus storms, or pyrocbs. The smoke and particulate matter they contain can be injected to altitudes of between 6 and 10 miles (10 to 16 kilometers). Other storms do not reach this high up, meteorologists say.
“We’re finding that rules are a little different for pyrocbs, and we think it’s because they have heat energy associated with them that’s equivalent to a minor volcanic eruption,” tells OurAmazingPlanet Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) meteorologist Michael Fromm.
The lower layers of the stratosphere were discovered to contain large amounts of particles, but until now experts thought that volcanic eruptions were responsible for this. The new data seems to indicate that thunderstorms caused by wildfires are the main driving force behind this phenomenon.
Fromm also says that air currents in the upper atmosphere carry the smoke and particulate matter around the world, depending on the region where they are first produced. Such a danger now exists with the carbon monoxide gas released by the wildfires devastating Russia.
Speaking of which, the new investigation managed to identify no less than three procbs produced by the current wildfires. But this type of storm can appear anywhere in the world, provided that the conditions are just right.
“It’s less important what is burning than how much is instantaneously burning — it could be grassland, forests, it could be a city,” Fromm believes. He adds that no computer models currently exist to explain this phenomenon, and says that his team is currently working on one.
In all, about 60 wildfires are burning around the nation, from Alaska to Utah to Florida, and satellite images show hazy curtains of smoke hanging over huge portions of the eastern two-thirds of the country.
Smoke travels well, said Georg Grell, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Earth System Research Lab in Boulder, Colo.
The hotter the fire, the higher its smoke can go — and the higher the smoke goes into the atmosphere, the farther it typically travels, Grell told OurAmazingPlanet.
“The winds are much stronger up there, so it gets transported much quicker,” he said. In addition, once smoke gets to certain altitudes, it’s less likely to be washed out of the air by rainstorms, Grell said.
Smoke from extremely hot wildfires can rise 4 to 5 miles (7 to 8 kilometers) into the atmosphere, and can even trigger massive thunderstorms, but it’s likely that the smoke from the recent spate of fires is hanging out about 1 mile (1.5 km) above the ground.
An animation produced by the weather-forecasting branch of NOAA shows plumes of smoke drifting up over the Great Lakes states and reaching areas of the East Coast by June 29
