Hurricanes a tropical cyclone with winds > 64 knots
Hurricanes are tropical cyclones with winds that exceed 64 knots (74 mi/hr) and circulate counter-clockwise about their centers in the Northern Hemisphere (clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere).
Image by: the GOES Project
Hurricanes are formed from simple complexes of thunderstorms. However, these thunderstorms can only grow to hurricane strength with cooperation from both the ocean and the atmosphere. First of all, the ocean water itself must be warmer than 26.5 degrees Celsius (81°F). The heat and moisture from this warm water is ultimately the source of energy for hurricanes. Hurricanes will weaken rapidly when they travel over land or colder ocean waters -- locations with insufficient heat and/or moisture.

This is a sea surface temperature map for the northern hemisphere summer. The yellow, orange, and red colors show water temperatures warm enough to sustain hurricanes (> 26.5°C).

Related to having warm ocean water, high relative humidities in the lower and middle troposphere are also required for hurricane development. These high humidities reduce the amount of evaporation in clouds and maximizes the latent heat released because there is more precipitation. The concentration of latent heat is critical to driving the system.

The vertical wind shear in a tropical cyclone's environment is also important. Wind shear is defined as the amount of change in the wind's direction or speed with increasing altitude. The video below shows how wind shear plays a role in hurricane formation.

When the wind shear is weak, the storms that are part of the cyclone grow vertically, and the latent heat from condensation is released into the air directly above the storm, aiding in development. When there is stronger wind shear, this means that the storms become more slanted and the latent heat…...

...What Coastal Features are formed by waves along a section of the Palisadoes Tombolo in Kingston and Green Wall in St. Thomas, Jamaica? By Kashaun Smith School: Wolmer’s Boys School Territory: Year: 2013-2014 Table of Contents Page Title Page Number Aim of Study Location of Study Area Methodology Presentation and Analysis of Data Conclusion Bibliography Aim of Study The aim of study is to determine and describe the coastal features observed along a section of Palisadoes Tombolo and Green Wall in St. Thomas, Jamaica. Location of Study Area Methodology On Monday, May 20, 2013, the Geography Department of Wolmer’s Boys’ School organized for students to visit sections of the South East coastline of Jamaica. The locations of study were scheduled to be Palisadoes Tombolo in Kingston and Green Wall in St. Thomas. However, due to the rainy weather we only studied the features of the Palisadoes Tombolo in Kingston on the 20th of May. The materials used to carry out the observation were: notebook, pen, maps, camera, stopwatch and textbooks. At each location, the first instruction given by the teacher was to observe and take photos of the features of the area that was being studied. This helped us to understand the structure of the area and special features and processes taking place. At all the locations a stopwatch was used to time the number of waves per minute. However, the height of the waves was all estimated at the......

The laboratory exercises and practical projects in Building Technology, Electrical and Electronic Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology are marked by a visiting examiner (Moderator) appointed by the Council. No Moderator is permitted to mark the work of students he has prepared for the examinations. The Moderator will visit each school twice during the final year. On the first visit he/she will assess the process of constructing the practical project/laboratory exercise of EACH student or group of students. On the final visit he/she will reassess the completed project work (product) of a sample of FIVE students already marked by the teacher. Note: • The Moderator selects the sample based on the total SBA scores awarded by the teacher. To facilitate this, the teacher must make a copy of his/her assessment on the Candidate’s Record Sheet available to the Moderator. The Moderator has the option of requesting additional assignments for reassessment, if needed. 2. 3 • If the number of students scheduled for the laboratory session is larger than can be accommodated at one session, the Assessor may divide them into two or more groups.

...Psicológica (2010), 31, 647-657. The law of elasticity Alberto Cocco* & Sergio Cesare Masin University of Padua, Italy Participants estimated the imagined elongation of a spring while they were imagining that a load was stretching the spring. This elongation turned out to be a multiplicative function of spring length and load weight—a cognitive law analogous to Hooke’s law of elasticity. Participants also estimated the total imagined elongation of springs joined either in series or in parallel. This total elongation was longer for serial than for parallel springs, and increased proportionally to the number of serial springs and inversely proportionally to the number of parallel springs. The results suggest that participants integrated load weight with imagined elasticity rather than with spring length. Intuitive physics refers to the cognitive laws of our tacit knowledge of the ordinary physical world (Anderson, 1983; Lipmann & Bogen, 1923; McCloskey, 1983; Shanon, 1976; Smith & Casati, 1994; Wilkening & Huber, 2002). In the following we report an investigation of the intuitive physics related to Hooke’s law of linear elasticity. We begin with a description of this law. HOOKE’S LAW Consider a close-coiled helical spring with length L and external diameter D, suspended from a fixed support. After an object with weight W is suspended from the lower end of the spring, Hooke’s law says that the spring elongation (increment in L) is E = k0 + k · W (1) with k0 a measurement......

...Version 2 General Certificate of Education (A-level) June 2011 Geography GEOG1 (Specification 2030) Unit 1: Physical and Human Geography Post-Standardisation Mark Scheme Mark schemes are prepared by the Principal Examiner and considered, together with the relevant questions, by a panel of subject teachers. This mark scheme includes any amendments made at the standardisation events which all examiners participate in and is the scheme which was used by them in this examination. The standardisation process ensures that the mark scheme covers the candidates’ responses to questions and that every examiner understands and applies it in the same correct way. As preparation for standardisation each examiner analyses a number of candidates’ scripts: alternative answers not already covered by the mark scheme are discussed and legislated for. If, after the standardisation process, examiners encounter unusual answers which have not been raised they are required to refer these to the Principal Examiner. It must be stressed that a mark scheme is a working document, in many cases further developed and expanded on the basis of candidates’ reactions to a particular paper. Assumptions about future mark schemes on the basis of one year’s document should be avoided; whilst the guiding principles of assessment remain constant, details will change, depending on the content of a particular examination paper. Further copies of this Mark Scheme are available......
