Strong India monsoons cause more hurricane landfalls in North America


Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

A new study has found a correlation between the strength of the monsoon season in India and the number of hurricanes that make landfall in North America.

According to Kelly, La Niña and the Indian monsoon are correlated, but the strength of the monsoon influences the steering of hurricanes independently of La Niña fluctuations, which are responsible for changes in hurricane frequency. In other words, La Niña fluctuations may result in more Atlantic hurricanes, but strong Indian monsoons steer them further westward, making it more likely they will make landfall in the Americas.

It’s important to account for the correlation when studying hurricane steering and landfall probability.

In reading the article, ignore the propaganda promoting global warming, as the research has zero to do with that subject. It instead now provides meteorologists another clue to predicting the frequency and paths of hurricanes in the Atlantic.

    Bob, I like your comment to ignore the crap! ” as the research has zero to do with that subject”

    Bob Z – “In reading the article, ignore the propaganda promoting global warming, as the research has zero to do with that subject. It instead now provides meteorologists another clue to predicting the frequency and paths of hurricanes in the Atlantic. ”

    And it illustrates the immensely complex system any planet’s weather is, yet these buffoons confidently make predictions a century out about climate. How many other unexpected linkages are out there to make a mockery of their models? Yet they shrilly howl we only have a dozen years left before the climate turns devastating bad. (and guess what, they’ll be like the folks who predict the world is going to end on such and such a date and when it doesn’t happen, come out with a revised date “based on new information” – so expect a new prediction in 2031)
