Southern Stratospheric Warming over Antarctica

Postby HBS Guy » 12 Sep 2019, 04:53

These are not common, last one, much weaker, took place in 1992. In the northern hemisphere they happen every year (Arctic is ocean surrounded by land, Antarctica is land surrounded by ocean.

Read about it here: https://theconversation.com/the-air-above-antarctica-is-suddenly-getting-warmer-heres-what-it-means-for-australia-123080

The above article was written by a senior researcher at the BoM.

Spring in Qld/NSW will not be nice—hot and dry.


Polar Vortex—air above equator is hot so expands, troposphere is highest there. Opposite over the poles so a gravity gradients exists and air moves from equator and comes down over the poles. Jet Streams used to keep polar air contained in the polar circles, AGW has weakened the Jet Stream—polar air can move south bringing cold and snow to parts northern hemisphere (greeted with “Ice Age!” by grifters like Dubyne.)

Similarly there are exchanges between troposphere and the stratosphere above it.

Not good now to be living in bushland in houses built as if they are in suburbia and lazy householders not preparing.

Someone on this forum told me it was the equivalent of Hadley Cell Expansion?!!!?

I think it's an equatorial weather cell but that still means I don't know :jump
