Russell Seitz – A war without fire 1990
"THE ATMOSPHERE is among the earth's most complex dynamic systems: subtle in its chemistry, chaotic in its flow. It interacts with everthing from the solar wind to the deep oceans. It is subject to insults great and small, brief and enduring, from men and meteorites, volcanoes and termites, wildfires and algal blooms-a list without end."
This site reviews the previously unrecognised annual atmospheric transport from the high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere to the Antarctic vortex that ocurs between May and November. It has been made visable using the NASA OCO-2 satellite images that record the movement of the trace gas CO2.
It is this large transport of atmosphere that is resposible for the large annual ozone loss over Antarctica between July and December. I have called this event the Blozone hole, as it best describes what actually occurs above Antarctica. The atmospheric transport is also responsible for other phenomena that Scientists still have no clear answer for, or challenges existing theories, such as
Other Topics Covered
- The Carbon Cycle as depicted by the IPCC is psuedo science.
- The current interpretation of CO2 sample data such as Mauna Loa is incorrect when viewed in conjuntion with the NASA OCO-2 satellite images.
- The majority of anthropogenic and biosphere CO2 emissions is transported to the high altitudes and are measured up to and beyond 100 km above sea level on a seasonal basis.
- The Blozone hole (large loss of ozone) over Antarctica is caused by the air transport into the vortex.
- The temperature in the Northern Hemisphere primarily controls the incremental annual CO2 increase.
- CO2 in the vertical atmospheric column is in positive outward flow increasing density at sea level.
- The unseasonal January NH winter upwelling in the equatorial region most notible near Guam is caused by the flow of CO2 bearing atmosphere to the low pressure area then vertically to higher altitudes.
- The NH tropopause in particular is one of the key drivers of global atmospheric movement.
- Hurricanes are formed primarily by the downward movement of the NH tropopause in Autumn that accelerates the mass transport of atmosphere southward.
- Hurricanes and the Antarctic Blozone hole have a direct interactive relationship
- The increase of Antarctic temperatures, sea ice extent and ice sheet volume from 1992 are a result of the air transport from the NH to the Antarctic vortex.
Hopefully this site and the Blozone Hole conclusions will provide interesting reading.
