Details

The entropic balance theory presented in this book shows significant agreement with the essential key features of tornadogenesis revealed from a number of published analyses of observations and computer simulations. This book develops a new form of helicity written in terms of α and β, which explains the transition from supercell to tornado. The entropic balance theory reveals that the transition is characterized as from baroclinic (solenoidal) to barotropic (solenoidless) stages. The entropic balance theory provides a fundamental, variational formalism of for a high Reynolds number. (Imprint: Nova)
