Can We Really Pop a Tornado?

Okay, . . . so . . . we really cannot pop a tornadic vortice like we can pop a bubble with a needle--no matter how big the needleWe realize our marketing is misleading, but we feel strongly that it is misleading you in the direction that best fits the facts. Specifically, since all of the functional details of tornadic vortices are interdependent (their efficacy being highly dependent on one another) theoretically any interruption in any of these factors will–like pricking a bubble with a needle–result in a breakdown of a vortice’s ability to maintain the structure that underlies its persistence. In other words, it will pop!


We are confident that the ability to shut off the delivery of energetic low pressure to the location of a storm is immediately within our grasp. 


It’s water, but it is not just water

We deliberately ignored the dumbed-down models of conventional meteorology and reverse engineered our way to comprehending the physics of storms. With respect to this we have a very important message to convey: It’s water, but it is not just water


The sheath of a tornadic vortice is, mostly, comprised of H2O.  But it certainly is not “just” water. It is a rare and highly energized form of H2O that only occurs in the atmosphere and only in the context of wind shear.  In fact it requires a constant source of wind shear; otherwise it will deteriorate rapidly. Also, be aware that this is not a hot plasma, as we see in ionic plasmas, like the flame of fire. This is a room temperature plasma. 

How a tornadic vortice is unlike a soap bubble

So, the highly energized H2O based, surface-tension plasma of tornadic vortices is different from the more passive surface tension of a soap bubble. One characteristic of this "vortice plasma" is that it is very aggressive about enveloping the flow that is the source of the energy it needs to continue to exist. We refer to this as the persistence of vortice plasma problem. One consequence of this persistence problem being that it is more difficult to interrupt or defeat the surface-tension plasma of tornadic vortices. And then there are the difficulties of just getting to where it is, at the top of the troposphere, 7 to 12 kilometers above.


Nevertheless it is still just water 

At Solving Tornadoes we maintain that it will prove to be simple, cheap, and even mundane to regularly interrupt the delivery of energetic low pressure to the location of a storm and to thereby mitigate the severity of severe weather.​
