  1. Typhoon Malakas

    And... The meaning of word malakas in Greek language: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malakas
  2. Cyclone Phenomena

    In this thread we will discuss about cyclone phenomena, and I start: 1) When two cyclones are met and merge and create a stronger cyclone, how this phenomenon is called? 2) When two cyclones are met and collide and both are impoverished, how this phenomenon is called? 3) When a cyclone is divided into two separate cyclones, how this phenomenon is called? 4) When a cyclone changes ocean (for example from Pacific to Atlantic) or changes part of ocean (from hurricane in north - eastern Pacific to typhoon in north - western Pacific), how this phenomenon is called? So, let's discuss... Say other phenomena too... Can a cyclone have two eyes?
  3. Super Typhoon Nepartak

    Taiwan is preparing for the arrival of Nepartak, a massive typhoon that is expected to cause heavy rains and flooding. Typhoons are common in Taiwan - category 5 typhoons, though, are not that usual. Since 1950 there have been 18 cyclones of this most violent category, and Super Typhoon Nepartak would be number 19. It is the first named storm of 2016 and is currently a category 5, as defined by the Saffir-Simpson international scale. Even though the major El Nino of last year has now collapsed, the northwest Pacific typhoon season is having its second slowest start in nearly 70 years. That will be of no comfort to the inhabitants of Taiwan who can expect the onset of typhoon weather later on Thursday. Taitung and Hualien counties in eastern Taiwan are likely to be the first to be hit by Nepartak. They contain a long, low river valley so flooding is likely. The forecast rainfall is expected to be at least 300mm. Current measurements by NASA suggest cloud tops of 17,000 metres, or 56,000 feet, which mean that thunderheads around the typhoon's eye are punching through the top of the atmosphere. Rainfall rates over the ocean could be as high as 190mm per hour. As Nepartak's eye makes landfall, it will lift the Pacific's surface by between one and two metres in what is known as a "storm surge". This is often the most devastating element of a typhoon, being similar to a small tsunami. In the case of Super Typhoon Nepartak, the wind could also be destructive. Steady winds of 230 kilometres an hour will be boosted by gusts as high as 280km/h. Curiously, this is the second typhoon called Nepartak, the first being a mere category 1 storm that hit the Philippines in November 2003. Appropriately, the epithet Nepartak is derived from the name of a conquering warrior from the island of Kosrae in Micronesia. Nepartak is likely to lose a lot of energy over Taiwan, but it is forecast to regain some strength over the Taiwan Strait. The Chinese mainland is then under threat, mostly from torrential rainfall, as Nepartak makes landfall on the vulnerable coast of Fujian Province. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/07/nepartak-huge-typhoon-heading-taiwan-160707084908359.html
  4. Tropical Depression Four-E

    It will become tropical storm tomorrow and tropical hurricane cat 1 in Sunday: I think both with Blas are in safe - non land area. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_ep4.shtml?5-daynl#contents Ships from North America to Australia - New Zealand or from South America, to eastern Asia, should be careful.

An area of low pressure is expected to develop south of the coast of southern Mexico in a couple of days in association with a tropical wave that is currently located near the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development of this system, and a tropical depression could form later this week while the disturbance moves westward or west-northwestward. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent Forecaster Pasch http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=epac&fdays=2
  6. Toronto - Ontario?

    What about 1996 Lake Huron cyclone: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_Lake_Huron_cyclone Or October 2010 North American storm complex: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_2010_North_American_storm_complex Or Hurricane Sandy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy I think Great Lakes are more complicated than oceans...
  7. Toronto - Ontario?

    The last period I live in Toronto - Ontario, Canada, and I wonder if I will be able to see something extreme, like hurricane... Extratropical cyclone? Very low pressure that will be born in Great Lakes? What do you think? For classical hurricanes, I live very north, and far away from Atlantic Ocean?
  8. There are many apps that display the current air temperature of my location in notification bar. But I want one that displays the current wind speed (kmh), and wind chill (C) of my location in notification bar. Do you have an idea? Thanks in advance.
  9. North American Weather (U.S.A & Canada)

    Thanks, but for me it is difficult to find there, the forecast for the temperature in 850 hPa and 500 hPa.
  10. North American Weather (U.S.A & Canada)

    Hi everyone. In a week i will be in Ontario, so I am wondering, what is the best way to see the 850 and 500 in this region. Something like gfs in Europe?
  11. What is your opinion about Oceanography or Ocean Engineering graduate studies? I already have a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and now I work as mobile - machine learning developer. But my dream is to deal with Oceans. I want to focus on the Ocean meteorology, Ocean waves, Ocean geography and maybe Naval Engineering. What is your opinion? Do you know any good universities in Europe or North America (especially Canada)? Can you suggest me a few books for introduction? So far, I have found this in Canada: http://www.mcgill.ca/gradapplicants/atmospheric-and-oceanic-sciences-0 Thanks in advance.
  12. The FIFA World Cup - Brazil 2014

    Now, there in England, what you support? Maybe your ex-colonies? What about Greece? You support us?
