Is it cyclic? - Not necessarily. Depends on the initial conditions and the current state of the system and a little bit on the history of states. Lorenz was both a meteorologist and mathematician. Having derived a rudimentary nonlinear dynamic model of weather he discovered that the set of equations and the outcome of the equations were highly sensitive to ...

"Downshear of the vortex"? And your link is just a google search for these words. -But as Vortex doesn't have too much shear stresses, it must mean this bottom flow which connects/feeds the low pressure vortex center with fluid. Please note that it doesn't make any difference if the fluid is going away from the bottom or from the top of the vortex. ...

Yes, "We" have. The reason why Energy blows up as the scale goes down, ist the fact that there is Surfaces in the fluid. "Turbulence" ist fluid broken in parts. If you have one big size eddy, it doesn't have much of a surface. But if you have a many small ones, they have exponentially more surface. And Surface is Energy! Every m2 of Watersurface has 72.8 ...

If you would just calculate the Reynold number to Troposphere, say, 10 000 m thick. Kinematik viscosity of air is, say, 1.2 x10^-5 so you found that with Re 4000 you would have just need to have a 0.0000048 m/s velocity In praxis, though, this is not the case, but it's a stratified fluid system; ...

Looking up "what happens when lightning strikes a house" on google (it is a .php file so I had to use printscreen) See also this youtube video. So yes, avoid taking a bath during a close by storm. Have a look at this answer What will happen when lightning strikes on the surface of the deep sea? which has some numbers of the energy in a strike. By the ...
