Windows 7: 2010 Hurricane prediction

2010 Hurricane prediction

So a recent Reuters article says the Colorado State University hurricane forecasting team predicted 8 major storms this season. Well, even one can be bad news. I was pondering a question; if it wasn't for the side affects of radiation, I wonder what would happen to a Category 4 if you dropped a nuke right in the eye out at sea?

With the way that some scientists are, don't encourage them, they will probably want to experiment.

That sounds like fun.

Except for the radiation part.

And I think it would destroy the storm.
Though to be honest, I think just a big regular bomb would do the same. All it needs to do is blow away the clouds and pressure with the shock wave, which should be achievable with a large bomb.

I don't believe that it would work. If the bomb was place in the eye of the storm, the air speed is calm, and the blast wouldn't erase the airflow pattern of the outer circumference of the storm. Hurricane are caused by a low pressure at the eye, which the bomb would negate only momentarily, when the initial blast pressure disappeared, it would be replaced by an implosion that would magnify the original low pressure core. In the end, the result would be a stronger storm, carrying radiation with it to where ever it decided to ramble.

Who said you had to detonate it in the eye? Why not in the outer wall?

Though you probably would need a really big bomb to have an effect on it.

Where ever it was detonated, it still wouldn't erase the natural force of the storm. The true cause of a storm is airflow, which is generated by pressure patterns. The clouds, rain, etc. are merely secondary effects. I think that you are underestimating nature's strength and force.

My point is merely that an explosion creates a pressure wave that pushes outwards. If you have seen the videos of the atomic bombs tests, all the clouds in the area are pushed away, with a powerful outwards wind.

While you may be 100% correct in that it would not stop the storm, I think it may have at least an effect upon it.

Yes, there is an outward force, but in turn, that is replaced by an inward force as air returns to fill the low pressure area created by the blast. This would intensify the pressure gradient that existed prior to the blast. There is no doubt that it would effect the storm, but not in the manner that you seem to think.

Alright, just for the discussion 3 bombs, detonated in succession.
Not nessesarily in line with the surface, but vertical with one underwater and the last at cloud level. Meh, it would probably be easier to convert basements to reinforced bomb/storm shelters.

There is one surefire way to blast a hurricane away, use enough bombs to destroy the Earth, or perhaps just create a anti-gravity device that would cause the atmosphere to loose it attraction to the Earth.
