Is fighters attack syrian City new lab can create Hurricane conditions by Jennifer Kay associated press Miami researchers trying to figure out what makes some hurricanes strengthen into catastrophic monsters have a new lab that allows them to generate tropical storm conditions with the flip of a switch. The lab is at the University of miamis Rosenstiel school of Marine and atmospheric science. Its known As the surge Structure atmosphere interaction or sustain. The tank the lab features a Clear acrylic tank about 75 feet Long and 6.5 feet High. Inside 38,000 Gallons of seawater can be whipped into White capped Waves by a 1,700 horsepower fan that can create category 5 conditions with winds Topping 157 Mph. Satellite sensors have been mounted on the labs High ceilings to look Down at Hurricane conditions churning in the tank. This will help Fine tune satellites watching real storms said lab director Brian Haus. The satellites even though they see a really big area they tend to be sensitive to really Small things on the surface. We dont really know when you get into extreme conditions what the satellite is seeing whether theress a spot reflecting off sea Spray or bubbles or Short Waves Haus said. Important bubbles during a recent test run Haus stood atop the tank his shoes dry and his clothes unruffled while Frothy Seagreen Waves raced beneath him. He also stood underneath the tank and along its sides watching sea Spray blast bubbles and water droplets Down the tank. By studying the Way Hurricane Force winds interact with Spray coming off the surface of seawater researchers aim to improve real time tropical storm observations made by satellites Ocean buoys and drones and other sensors launched from Hurricane Hunter aircraft. Hurricanes run like engines fuelled by warm Ocean Waters. Some aspects still stump researchers because they cant clearly see whats happening where a storms winds meet the Waters surface. Researchers Are testing Small drones to Fly Down into those dark and Stormy places while a variety of other sensors from buoys and underwater gliders and satellites collect data for Hurricane forecasting models. All those tools still Are prone to technical difficulties in extreme conditions. Researchers think that understanding the role those tiny elements play in the Transfer of Energy from the Ocean to a storm May crack the mystery of what causes some storms to fizzle while others strengthen.
