27th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology


Phenomenological analysis of forces in hurricane dynamics

Robert A. Dickerson, Independent Engineering Consultant, Zephyr Cove, Nevada

It is argued that electromagnetism effects may have significant or even dominant effects upon hurricane dynamics. Electromagnetic effects appear to be consistent with major hurricane characteristics, including most notably the eye. Elements of hurricane models are suggested. Simple experimental measurements are also suggested to evaluate the effects. If the hypothesis were to be found true, hurricane “management” techniques might be possible.
