I know how, but only a hurricane:
A hurricane begins when a warm, wet mass of air over the sea begins to rise quickly. Then combined actions of air, water and heat may then produce a huge, spinning system of clouds, rain and wind- a hurricane. The center, or eye, of a hurricane  us calm. It is a hole in a dough-nut of wind.
A hurricane usually lasts 9-12 days. It forms and builds strength over warm sea water. It loses energy as it moves over cooler sea water or land.

i got that out of a book, I'm not really that smart, I'm just plain stupid :P

Cyclones are thunderstorms that are formed on top of water. When the sun give out rays, the water heats up, but very slowly, when the mass of water heats up, water is being evaporated and a cyclone is formed.

Tropical cyclones are formed over oceanic regions where the sea surface temperature is 26o C or higher. In the Asian region, tropical cyclones, usually referred to as typhoons, are common during the Northern Hemisphere summer when temperatures over the Pacific Ocean are warm and favourable for convective activity. In the warm tropical ocean, low pressure systems are formed, move westwards and develop from tropical depressions into storms and finally evolve into mature typhoons

the form over tropical seas. they form when water evaporates and condenses. clouds tower up and a hurricane is born.          the structure of a hurricane is unique. no other storm has a calm core, or an eye in the center. the eye is 14 miles in diameter, but twice that size isn't unusual. the winds blow counterclockwise

Hurricanes begin as tropical storms over the warm moist waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans near the equator. As the moisture evaporates it rises until enormous amounts of heated moist air are twisted high in the atmosphere. Around the eye of the hurricane, winds move at speeds between 74 and 200 miles per hour. The fuel that powers hurricanes is derived from latent heat from the condensing of water vapor. Hurricanes usually last between five and ten days.

Cyclones are circulating winds that go in a  counterclockwise direction (around a center of low atmospheric pressure) north of the Equator. Cyclones that are found south of the equator go in the opposite direction. The mass of moving air is slowly dragged towards the surface of the Earth by friction.

Tropical cyclones form between the Tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, in areas where the surface of the sea reaches 27 degrees Celsius. The intense heat of the sun causes great volumes of air to rise through convection. The rising air carries it with huge quantities of evaporated moisture from the warm seas, which are then carried into the upper atmosphere. This air forms an area of intense low pressure called a depression, usually accompanied by cumulonimbus clouds and thunderstorms. it is this combination of warmth and moisture that leads to the fact that cyclones generate so much destructive energy. For instance, warmer air holds moisture. One reason for the intense rain that comes with tropical cyclones is that the air is so warm that it absorbs a great deal of moisture from the oceans. This moisture eventually needs to be released as rain. The oceans south of the equator warm up more quickly because the sun's rays are more directly overhead. The rapidly spinning rising air creates a downdraught of subsiding air or high pressure in the centre of the cyclone(eye). In the eye of the cyclone, which is usually 10-40 kilometers wide, the air is usually warm and dry with only light winds. That is pretty much all i know about cyclones

Eye
The centre or eye of a tropical cyclone is at the area of lowest pressure and is characterised by little or no wind and often a cloudless sky. In severe cyclones the eye usually shows up as a circular hole in the central cloud mass. The eye is usually about 40 km in diameter, but can vary between less than 10 km and more than 100 km.

Eye Wall
Surrounding the eye is a wall of dense convective cloud rising about 15 km into the atmosphere. This is the eye wall and is where the most violent winds and heaviest rainfall occur.

Spiral Bands
Radar and satellite observations of tropical cyclones reveal a distinctive pattern of convective cloud bands spiralling into the eye wall. These bands often extend up to 1000 km from the cyclone centre, and contain heavy rain and wind squalls.

Cirrus Canopy
The extremely vigorous uplift of moist air within the convective clouds of the eye wall and inner spiral bands produces a massive outflow of cirrus cloud in the upper atmosphere. This forms a huge canopy over the cyclone, making satellite location of the system centre difficult during the early development stages, before the eye shows through the canopy.

How do hurricanes form?:
Hurricanes require sea surface tempatures of at least 26C  (80F)AT LEAST. And the influence of the earths rotation for the spinning effect. (Coriolis effect) A hurricane will form when warm air over the sea begins to rise quickly. The ingredients of a system of clouds, rain and wind combine a hurricane.

tornadoes are formed when a cold air mass and a warm air mass meet. usually there will be a huge change in temperature that day. the day may start out cold and chilly, but then will become hot and sticky. then a funnel cloud will form from the moisture in the air, and will sometimes meet with the earth, forming a tornado. the best thing to do is to find a level lower than the tornado. you have nothing to worry about as long as the funnel cloud doesn't meet the earth, though.

Hurricanes are caused when a cold front (clouds) meets a warm front (the warm air, usually caused by El Nino) this causes a spinning motion and it is now a tropical depression.  This tropical depression strengthens from warm water. Once the wind picks up to a certain speed it is upgraded to a tropical storm and then a Hurricane (Category 1) and so on and so forth.  Once a hurricane gets close to land it creates something called storm surge.  Depending on how strong the hurricane is the higher the waves.  If the hurricane is really strong you can get like 20ft waves hittin the coastline consistently. a hurricane spins differently according to hemisphere. i would write more but this is taking to long!!!!

All of you lot have missed out a key fact with all hurricane, cyclones... The Coriolis effect- Due to the spinning of the earth winds are deflected to the right in the northen hemisphere, in low pressure systems such as hurricanes this means that the winds start to travel in an anti-clockwise direction- this ensures that winds will travel at fast speeds in a hurricane.

As moist air rises from the sea, air from the sides rushes in the replace the air that has risen. This forms cumulonimbus clouds and produces heavy rainfall. As the Earth spins this causes the cumulonimbus clouds to revolve in a clockwise direction in the Southern Hemisphere and an anti-clockwise direction in the Northern Hemisphere.

Hurricanes/cyclones/tropical storms form over areas of warm water (Atlantic and pacific ocean.) This is due to the fast heating of the seas due to their position in a 6* belt north/south of the equator. They occur in temperatures of 26*c or above and are fueled by condensed water- water vapor. These are warm and wet air masses.

A cyclone is formed when the winds is changing and spin clockwise. After the winds is formed and move clockwise, it gather the winds around it and make a strong winds. So, this strong will look like a hurricane. Sometimes, It last for a few hours and disappear. During the time it forms, it is like a helicopter that is in the middle of the ocean that blow air. It is formed mostly when there is a thunderstorm, and strong winds cause it.

Hurricanes are big fat tropical storms that form over warm water.  When the water is warmed, it rises, and mixes with cold air they begin to spin.  It is first called a tropical depression, then a storm, then a hurricane.  The hurricane has to have winds over seventy-four miles per hour.  It has a calm area called the eye, with low pressures as low as 915 millibars.  Okay, there's more, but I don't remember.  Why don't you ask someone else?

When the sea is warm the heat surrounding it rises. Cold air rushes in to fill up the space. The air starts spinning (clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere and anticlockwise in the Northern Hemisphere) and a cyclone is formed.

Cyclones form when a warm, wet mass of air over the sea begins to rise quickly. Then the air, water and heat produce a huge, spinning system of clouds, rain and wind. The eye, of a cyclone is calm. A hurricane usually lasts 9-12 days. It forms and builds strength over warm seawater. It loses energy as it moves over cooler seawater or land.

Tropical cyclones form between the Tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, in areas where the surface of the sea reaches 27 degrees Celsius. The intense heat of the sun causes great volumes of air to rise through convection. The rising air carries it with huge quantities of evaporated moisture from the warm seas, which are then carried into the upper atmosphere. This air forms an area of intense low pressure called a depression, usually accompanied by cumulonimbus clouds and thunderstorms. it is this combination of warmth and moisture that leads to the fact that cyclones generate so much destructive energy. For instance, warmer air holds moisture. One reason for the intense rain that comes with tropical cyclones is that the air is so warm that it absorbs a great deal of moisture from the oceans. This moisture eventually needs to be released as rain. The oceans south of the equator warm up more quickly because the sun's rays are more directly overhead. The rapidly spinning rising air creates a downdraught of subsiding air or high pressure in the centre of the cyclone(eye). In the eye of the cyclone, which is usually 10-40 kilometers wide, the air is usually warm and dry with only light winds.


Eye
The centre or eye of a tropical cyclone is at the area of lowest pressure and is characterised by little or no wind and often a cloudless sky. In severe cyclones the eye usually shows up as a circular hole in the central cloud mass. The eye is usually about 40 km in diameter, but can vary between less than 10 km and more than 100 km.

Eye Wall
Surrounding the eye is a wall of dense convective cloud rising about 15 km into the atmosphere. This is the eye wall and is where the most violent winds and heaviest rainfall occur.

Spiral Bands
Radar and satellite observations of tropical cyclones reveal a distinctive pattern of convective cloud bands spiralling into the eye wall. These bands often extend up to 1000 km from the cyclone centre, and contain heavy rain and wind squalls.

Cirrus Canopy
The extremely vigorous uplift of moist air within the convective clouds of the eye wall and inner spiral bands produces a massive outflow of cirrus cloud in the upper atmosphere. This forms a huge canopy over the cyclone, making satellite location of the system centre difficult during the early development stages, before the eye shows through the canopy.

A hurricane results from a combination of many different forces. First there must be a massive uplifting of warm air, usually by convection or converging air. When this happens, the cool air in the upper parts of the atmosphere can't hold the amount of water that the warm, rising air brings with it. When the dew point of the warm, rising air is reached, the water vapor condenses. When water condenses, latent heat is released. Latent heat fuels the continuing uplift of warm air. As the warm air rises, it pushes cold air out of its way, decreasing the air pressure (warm air is more buoyant than cold air), which also continues the uplift. The result of these occurrences is a thunderstorm. Hurricanes are actually formed from thunderstorms, however, ocean water must be at least 81 degrees Fahrenheit, there can't be much vertical wind shear (amount of change in wind direction and speed with increasing altitude), and the humidity in the mid and upper levels of the troposphere must be high to reduce the evaporation of clouds. These disturbances first become tropical depressions which can then develop into tropical storms, before finally becoming a hurricane. Each being stronger than the next, tropical depressions occur when the first sign of centralized pressure drop and circulation is recognizable, their wind speeds are constantly between 23-39mph; a tropical storm is an intensified tropical depression with wind speeds of 39-73mph; a hurricane is born when wind speeds reach 74mph... after that, there are 5 more categories, each stronger than the last. The eye of a hurricane maintains the lowest pressure. Because of the Coriolis Effect (and Earth's rotation), winds are deflected slightly away from the center, and therefore, the eye is always calm. The region surrounding the eye is the eye wall, it has the most intense rain and wind. Because of surface winds rushing toward the center, but being deflected by the Coriolis Effect (deflected to the right in the Northern Hemisphere), the converging wind at the eye wall is most intense, forcing warm evaporated ocean air upward at very forceful speeds, maximizing the amount of latent heat being released. There are spiral bands of wind and rain that radiate away from the clockwise-spinning hurricane. Hurricanes can last a couple of weeks, but as soon as they travel over colder water, or land, their are weakened and don't last. I hope this helps :)

Hurricanes form and intensify over oceanic regions. They need sea-surface temperatures of at least 26C and the influence of a cold front that when hits the warm front that is generated by making a funnel that leads to a vortex. In North America, we call a storm a such as this a  hurricane. In other parts of the world, a hurricane is known by other names, including "typhoon" in the Western North Pacific and "tropical cyclone" in the Indian Ocean and the Western South Pacific.

I think that hurricanes form when warm water and cold water collides, when they collide they form pressure and that pressure forms up and up. When that pressure reaches enough height and with the wind blowing the pressure starts to spin and than the clouds start mixing in with the pressure and forms a tropical storm. When the tropical storm gets enough warm water as moves through out the ocean and gains enough speed than the tropical storm has the potential to become a hurricane.

guys,here it is.


Cyclones ( or more properly called Tropical Cyclones) are a type of severe spinning(rotating) storm that occurs over the ocean near the tropics.

The word "Cyclone" just means 'turning wind with one eye. It relates to the word "Cyclops" that one eyed creature in an Ancient Greek story.


Tropical Cyclones have a number of characteristics like:

They must have a wind speed greater than 119km/h
They start in the tropics.

Did you know that cyclones are actually the release of stored solar energy that rotates. The sun heats the ocean up and this creates the condition for a tropical cyclone to develop.

Cyclones spin because the Earth is spinning. It's due to something called the coriolis effect.

The direction they spin depends on which hemisphere they are in.

In the Southern hemisphere they spin in a clockwise direction and Northern hemisphere they spin in an anti-clockwise direction.



Did you know...

cyclones are also called hurricanes around the US. Cyclones are called typhoons near the South China sea (from the chinese word meaning 'big wind' )

Why are cyclones important ?

There are some obvious reasons for knowing about cyclones, these include:

Environmentally cyclones can be important to local ecosystems. eg reefs and the distribution of plants and sand have adapted to them.

Cyclones can have a economic and emotional effect on people and property directly affected. thousands of people have died or been displaced by them. Hundreds of homes could be destroyed causing millions of dollars damage.

Having a better understanding of cyclones can help you better prepare and perhaps minimise or prevent cyclcone damage.




Cyclones and Culture

Cyclones, like other natural disasters, have an impact on our culture, inspiring films and stories and even names of sporting teams.

Cyclones start their life over hot water (note) that cyclone can only starts near the tropics, where the temperature of the water is 27 degrees Celsius. Hot air rises over warm water and expands, pushing against the air already there, and then cold air takes its place.

a huricane is  swirling air made up of tropical ocean waters it can be a 167kmph huricane Eye
The centre or eye of a tropical cyclone is at the area of lowest pressure and is characterised by little or no wind and often a cloudless sky. In severe cyclones the eye usually shows up as a circular hole in the central cloud mass. The eye is usually about 40 km in diameter, but can vary between less than 10 km and more than 100 km.

Eye Wall
Surrounding the eye is a wall of dense convective cloud rising about 15 km into the atmosphere. This is the eye wall and is where the most violent winds and heaviest rainfall occur.

Spiral Bands
Radar and satellite observations of tropical cyclones reveal a distinctive pattern of convective cloud bands spiralling into the eye wall. These bands often extend up to 1000 km from the cyclone centre, and contain heavy rain and wind squalls.

Cirrus Canopy
The extremely vigorous uplift of moist air within the convective clouds of the eye wall and inner spiral bands produces a massive outflow of cirrus cloud in the upper atmosphere. This forms a huge canopy over the cyclone, making satellite location of the system centre difficult during the early development stages, before the eye shows through the canopy.

Actually, hurricanes, tropical storms and cyclones are similar. They are called hurricanes in the Carribean, typhoons in asia, tropical cyclones in Australia, India and the Bangladesh.

They are actually extreme low-pressure systems that originate over the seas and oceans between 6 degrees North and 20 degrees north and between 6 degrees South and 20 degrees South in summer and autumn. In this particular period of time, temperature of the seas exceed 27 degrees Celcius. They live over three weeks as they move landwards. When the storm reaches the land, its supply of warm air is cut off (warm air contributing to formation of cyclones are mentioned below). They also have steep pressure gradients. With steep pressure gradients, strong winds are generated that can be blowing at more than 120km an hour. (winds move from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure)

They usually for over the seas and ocean in the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). (they form on the mediterranean sea too) In the ITCZ, moist north-east trades and south-east trades meet and are uplifted. As they are uplifted, a low-pressure zone is created. As the air rises, condensation of water vapour occurs. The process of condensation releases latent heat and makes the air warmer. This again lowers its pressure and more moist air from the surrounding seas are drawn into this low-pressure system to form dense cumulonimbus clouds. These clouds produce torrential rain. Hence tropical cyclones are formed.

Hurricanes begin as tropical storms over the warm moist waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans near the equator. (Near the Philippines and the China Sea, hurricanes are called typhoons.) As the moisture evaporates it rises until enormous amounts of heated moist air are twisted high in the atmosphere. The winds begin to circle counterclockwise north of the equator or clockwise south of the equator. The reatively peaceful center of the hurricane is called the eye. Around this center winds move at speeds between 74 and 200 miles per hour. As long as the hurricane remains over waters of 79F or warmer, it continues to pull moisture from the surface and grow in size and force. When a hurricane crosses land or cooler waters, it loses its source of power, and its wind gradually slow until they are no longer of hurricane force--less than 74 miles per hour.

A tornado is caused when the sun heats the land. The land then acts like an oven and heats the air above it, a mass of cold air then moves in above the warm air forcing it to stay down. The warm air eventually punches through, and causes a tornado.

I know how, but only a hurricane:
A hurricane begins when a warm, wet mass of air over the sea begins to rise quickly. Then combined actions of air, water and heat may then produce a huge, spinning system of clouds, rain and wind- a hurricane. The center, or eye, of a hurricane  us calm. It is a hole in a dough-nut of wind.
A hurricane usually lasts 9-12 days. It forms and builds strength over warm sea water. It loses energy as it moves over cooler sea water or land.

Tropical cyclones are low pressure systems that form in the tropics which, in the southern hemisphere, have well defined clockwise wind circulations with average surface winds exceeding gale force (34 kn). Short period wind gusts are often 40 per cent or more higher than the average wind speed. Severe tropical cyclones have surface winds greater than hurricane force (63 kn).
The circular eye of a tropical cyclone is an area characterised by light winds and often by clear skies. The eye is typically 20 nautical miles (nm) or so across but the eye of a cyclone can range from under 5 to over 50 nm wide.
The eye is surrounded by a dense ring of cloud known as the eye wall which is the area of heaviest winds and seas. Following the passage of the eye the winds shift to the opposite direction with equal force.
Tropical cyclones vary in both size and intensity. Small cyclones such as Chloe (April 1995) may be only 60 nm across whereas large storms, such as Orson (April 1989) and Joan (December 1975), may be up to 300 nm across. Both large and small cyclones can have equally devastating wind speeds near the centre.
Radar and satellite images often show that the eye wall clouds are the innermost coil of a series of spiral rain-band clouds. These bands may extend up to 300 nm from the eye wall and are often associated with thunderstorms and very strong wind squalls.

The terms "hurricane" and "typhoon" are regionally specific names for a strong "tropical cyclone". A tropical cyclone is the generic term for a non-frontal synoptic scale low-pressure system over tropical or sub-tropical waters with organized convection (i.e. thunderstorm activity) and definite cyclonic surface wind circulation (Holland 1993).

Tropical cyclones with maximum sustained surface winds of less than 17 m/s (34 kt, 39 mph) are called "tropical depressions" (This is not to be confused with the condition mid-latitude people get during a long, cold and grey winter wishing they could be closer to the equator ;-)). Once the tropical cyclone reaches winds of at least 17 m/s (34 kt, 39 mph) they are typically called a "tropical storm" and assigned a name. If winds reach 33 m/s (64 kt, 74 mph)), then they are called:

"hurricane" (the North Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Pacific Ocean east of the dateline, or the South Pacific Ocean east of 160E)
"typhoon" (the Northwest Pacific Ocean west of the dateline)
"severe tropical cyclone" (the Southwest Pacific Ocean west of 160E or Southeast Indian Ocean east of 90E)
"severe cyclonic storm" (the North Indian Ocean)
"tropical cyclone" (the Southwest Indian Ocean)


A sub-tropical cyclone is a low-pressure system existing in the tropical or subtropical latitudes (anywhere from the equator to about 50N) that has characteristics of both tropical cyclones and mid-latitude (or extratropical) cyclones. Therefore, many of these cyclones exist in a weak to moderate horizontal temperature gradient region (like mid-latitude cyclones), but also receive much of their energy from convective clouds (like tropical cyclones). Often, these storms have a radius of maximum winds which is farther out (on the order of 100-200 km [60-125 miles] from the center) than what is observed for purely "tropical" systems. Additionally, the maximum sustained winds for sub-tropical cyclones have not been observed to be stronger than about 33 m/s (64 kts, 74 mph)).

Many times these subtropical storms transform into true tropical cyclones. A recent example is the Atlantic basin's Hurricane Florence in November 1994 which began as a subtropical cyclone before becoming fully tropical. Note there has been at least one occurrence of tropical cyclones transforming into a subtropical storm (e.g. Atlantic basin storm 8 in 1973).

An extra-tropical cyclone is a storm system that primarily gets its energy from the horizontal temperature contrasts that exist in the atmosphere. Extra-tropical cyclones (also known as mid-latitude or baroclinic storms) are low pressure systems with associated cold fronts, warm fronts, and occluded fronts.

Tropical cyclones, in contrast, typically have little to no temperature differences across the storm at the surface and their winds are derived from the release of energy due to cloud/rain formation from the warm moist air of the tropics
Structurally, tropical cyclones have their strongest winds near the earth's surface , while extra-tropical cyclones have their strongest winds near the tropopause - about 8 miles (12 km) up. These differences are due to the tropical cyclone being "warm-core" in the troposphere (below the tropopause) and the extra-tropical cyclone being "warm-core" in the stratosphere (above the tropopause) and "cold-core" in the troposphere. "Warm-core" refers to being relatively warmer than the environment at the same pressure surface ("pressure surfaces" are simply another way to measure height or altitude).

Often, a tropical cyclone will transform into an extra-tropical cyclone as it recurves poleward and to the east. Occassionally, an extra-tropical cyclone will lose its frontal features, develop convection near the center of the storm and transform into a full-fledged tropical cyclone. Such a process is most common in the North Atlantic and Northwest Pacific basins. The transformation of tropical cyclone into an extra-tropical cyclone (and vice versa) is currently one of the most challenging forecast problems (i.e., Jones et al. 2003).
The "eye" is a roughly circular area of comparatively light winds and fair weather found at the center of a severe tropical cyclone. Although the winds are calm at the axis of rotation, strong winds may extend well into the eye. There is little or no precipitation and sometimes blue sky or stars can be seen. The eye is the region of lowest surface pressure and warmest temperatures aloft - the eye temperature may be 10C [18F] warmer or more at an altitude of 12 km [8 mi] than the surrounding environment, but only 0-2C [0-3F] warmer at the surface (Hawkins and Rubsam 1968) in the tropical cyclone. Eyes range in size from 8 km [5 mi] to over 200 km [120 mi] across, but most are approximately 30-60 km [20-40 mi] in diameter (Weatherford and Gray 1988).
The eye is surrounded by the "eyewall", the roughly circular ring of deep convection which is the area of highest surface winds in the tropical cyclone. The eye is composed of air that is slowly sinking and the eyewall has a net upward flow as a result of many moderate - occasionally strong - updrafts and downdrafts. The eye's warm temperatures are due to compressional warming of of the subsiding air. Most soundings taken within the eye show a low-level layer which is relatively moist, with an inversion above - suggesting that the sinking in the eye typically does not reach the ocean surface, but instead only gets to around 1-3 km [ 1-2 mi] of the surface.

The exact mechanism by which the eye forms remains somewhat controversial. One idea suggests that the eye forms as a result of the downward directed pressure gradient associated with the weakening and radial spreading of the tangential wind field with height (Smith, 1980). Another hypothesis suggests that the eye is formed when latent heat release in the eyewall occurs, forcing subsidence in the storm's center (Shapiro and Willoughby, 1982). It is possible that these hypotheses are not inconsistent with one another. In either case, as the air subsides, it is compressed and warms relative to air at the same level outside the eye and thereby becomes locally buoyant. This upward buoyancy approximately balances the downward directed pressure gradient so that the actual subsidence is produced by a small residual force.

Another feature of tropical cyclones that probably plays a role in forming and maintaining the eye is the eyewall convection. Convection in tropical cyclones is organized into long, narrow rainbands which are oriented in the same direction as the horizontal wind. Because these bands seem to spiral into the center of a tropical cyclone, they are sometimes called "spiral bands". Along these bands, low-level convergence is a maximum, and therefore, upper-level divergence is most pronounced above. A direct circulation develops in which warm, moist air converges at the surface, ascends through these bands, diverges aloft, and descends on both sides of the bands. Subsidence is distributed over a wide area on the outside of the rainband but is concentrated in the small inside area. As the air subsides, adiabatic warming takes place, and the air dries. Because subsidence is concentrated on the inside of the band, the adiabatic warming is stronger inward from the band causing a sharp contrast in pressure falls across the band since warm air is lighter than cold air. Because of the pressure falls on the inside, the tangential winds around the tropical cyclone increase due to increased pressure gradient. Eventually, the band moves toward the center and encircles it and the eye and eyewall form (Willoughby 1979, 1990a, 1995).

Thus the cloud-free eye may be due to a combination of dynamically forced centrifuging of mass out of the eye into the eyewall and to a forced descent caused by the moist convection of the eyewall. This topic is certainly one that can use more research to ascertain which mechanism is primary.

hey everybody!!! this page here is 2 answer a question! its not here 2 store all ur useless answers that dont even answer the question coz noone wants 2 no who u luv or who sucks ok?

Anyway heres the answer...
The formation of tropical cyclones is the topic of extensive ongoing research, and is still not fully understood. Five factors are necessary to make tropical cyclone formation possible:

Sea surface temperatures above 26.5 degrees Celsius (79.7 degrees Fahrenheit) to at least a depth of 50 meters (164 feet). The moisture in the air above the warm water is the energy source for tropical cyclones.
Upper-atmosphere conditions conducive to thunderstorm formation. Temperature in the atmosphere must decrease quickly with height, and the mid-troposphere must be relatively moist.
A pre-existing weather disturbance. This is most frequently provided by tropical wavesnon-rotating areas of thunderstorms that move through tropical oceans.
A distance of approximately 10 degrees or more from the equator, so that the Coriolis effect is strong enough to initiate the cyclone's rotation. (2004's Hurricane Ivan was the strongest storm to form closer than 10 degrees from the equator; it started forming at 9.7 degrees north.)
Low vertical wind shear (change in wind speed or direction over height). High wind shear can break apart the vertical structure of a tropical cyclone.
Tropical cyclones occasionally form despite not meeting these conditions.

Only specific weather disturbances can result in tropical cyclones. These include:

Tropical waves, or easterly waves, which, as mentioned above, are westward moving areas of convergent winds. This often assists in the development of thunderstorms, which can develop into tropical cyclones. Most tropical cyclones form from these. A similar phenomenon to tropical waves are West African disturbance lines, which are squally lines of convection that form over Africa and move into the Atlantic.
Tropical upper tropospheric troughs, which are cold-core upper level lows. A warm-core tropical cyclone may result when one of these (on occasion) works down to the lower levels and produces deep convection.
Decaying frontal boundaries may occasionally stall over warm waters and produce lines of active convection. If a low level circulation forms under this convection, it may develop into a tropical cyclone.

ok. well,  HURRICANES


Hurricanes rotate in a counterclockwise direction.
A hurricane is a powerful, rotating storm that forms over warm oceans near the Equator.
Another name for a hurricane is a tropical cyclone. Hurricanes have strong, rotating winds (at least 74 miles per hour or 119 kilometers per hour), a huge amount of rain, low air pressure, thunder and lightning.
The cyclonic winds of a hurricane rotate in a counterclockwise direction around a central, calm eye.
If this type of storm forms in the western Pacific Ocean, it is called a typhoon.

Hurricanes often travel from the ocean to the coast and on to land, where the wind, rain, and huge waves can cause extensive destruction.

Generally, when a hurricane moves over land (or over cold ocean waters) the storm begins to weaken and quickly dies down because the storm is fueled by warm water.

On average, there are about 100 tropical cyclones worldwide each year; 12 of these form in the Atlantic Ocean, 15 form in the eastern Pacific Ocean and the rest are in other areas.

OK?? there's the answer

Cyclones form when there are dramatic changes in air pressure. They occur around the tropics when the sea temperature is warm, around 26.5 degrees or above, and water vapor begins to rise forming a convection current. These currents then begin to collect clouds and due to the warm air and moisture they begin to rotate. this might be more usefull information :)

uh Tropical cyclones form between the Tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, in areas where the surface of the sea reaches 27 degrees Celsius. The intense heat of the sun causes great volumes of air to rise through convection. The rising air carries it with huge quantities of evaporated moisture from the warm seas, which are then carried into the upper atmosphere. This air forms an area of intense low pressure called a depression, usually accompanied by cumulonimbus clouds and thunderstorms. it is this combination of warmth and moisture that leads to the fact that cyclones generate so much destructive energy. For instance, warmer air holds moisture. One reason for the intense rain that comes with tropical cyclones is that the air is so warm that it absorbs a great deal of moisture from the oceans. This moisture eventually needs to be released as rain. The oceans south of the equator warm up more quickly because the sun's rays are more directly overhead. The rapidly spinning rising air creates a downdraught of subsiding air or high pressure in the centre of the cyclone(eye). In the eye of the cyclone, which is usually 10-40 kilometers wide, the air is usually warm and dry with only light winds. That is pretty much all i know about cyclones

I know how, but only a hurricane:
A hurricane begins when a warm, wet mass of air over the sea begins to rise quickly. Then combined actions of air, water and heat may then produce a huge, spinning system of clouds, rain and wind- a hurricane. The center, or eye, of a hurricane  us calm. It is a hole in a dough-nut of wind.
A hurricane usually lasts 9-12 days. It forms and builds strength over warm sea water. It loses energy as it moves over cooler sea water or land.

This is part of my project I hope it helps:

Tropical Cyclone is the name for a rotating system of winds over tropical water. To form, they generally need a light wind and high humidity. A disturbance develops thunderstorms, and they become organized and begin to spiral. In the center this forms an eye. There is no wind here but the pressure around this area is the strongest.

Tropical cyclones are formed over oceanic regions where the sea surface temperature is 26o C or higher. In the Asian region, tropical cyclones, usually referred to as typhoons, are common during the Northern Hemisphere summer when temperatures over the Pacific Ocean are warm and favourable for convective activity. In the warm tropical ocean, low pressure systems are formed, move westwards and develop from tropical depressions into storms and finally evolve into mature typhoons.

I just want to say that a hurricane, typhoon and cyclone are all the same. They just have different names depending on where you live. They all start in the tropics and (duh) are very dangerous. They affect everything, the water, air, land, cause erosion, bring floods and storms and you never know where they are going because they are affected by wind and their paths are erratic (that means crazy and unpredictable) once formed they can travel over cooler seas and USUALLY dissipate (dissappear) over land.

For a cyclone to form several preconditions must be met:
1. Warm ocean waters (of at least 26.5C) throughout a sufficient depth (unknown how deep, but at least on the order of 50 m). Warm waters are necessary to fuel the heat engine of the tropical cyclone.
2. An atmosphere which cools fast enough with height (is "unstable" enough) such that it encourages thunderstorm activity. It is the thunderstorm activity which allows the heat stored in the ocean waters to be liberated for the tropical cyclone development.
3. Relatively moist layers near the mid-troposphere (5 km). Dry mid levels are not conducive for allowing the continuing development of widespread thunderstorm activity.
4. A minimum distance of around 500 km from the equator. Some of the earth's spin (Coriolis force) is needed to maintain the low pressure of the system. (Systems can form closer to the equator but it's a rare event)
5. A pre-existing disturbance near the surface with sufficient spin (vorticity) and inflow (convergence). Tropical cyclones cannot be generated spontaneously. To develop, they require a weakly organized system with sizeable spin and low level inflow.
6. Little change in the wind with height (low vertical wind shear, i.e. less than 40 km/h from surface to tropopause). Large values of wind shear tend to disrupt the organisaton of the thunderstorms that are important to the inner part of a cyclone.

Having these conditions met is necessary, but not sufficient as many disturbances that appear to have favorable conditions do not develop.

Cyclonic Tropical Storms are called hurricanes in the Atlantic, Typhoons in the Western Pacific north of the Equator, and Tropical Cyclones in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific south of the Equator.
Hurricanes release more energy than any other weather event. They are incredibly powerful "heat engines"  
   Billions of dollars are spent every year on hurricane studies around the world.  Satellite imagery lets us see how big hurricanes are and track them, while storm-penetrating aircraft measure their strength, in terms of wind speeds and atmospheric pressure. Weather balloons, hydrometers that measure ocean temperature, and recently unmanned robot aircraft are tools that meteorologists use to analyze storms. This information is then input into massive computers and predictive models are developed so that detailed storms warnings can be produced which millions of people then ignore so that hundreds of deaths and billions of dollars of destruction can occur anyway.
   Hurricanes usually form in the tropical zones north and south of the equator, where warm waters offer ample fuel for storm formation. That's where you see convection, where warm air rises and forms clusters of thunderstorms. The Coriolis effect, created by the Earth's spinning motion, may cause this cluster of storms to rotate (counter-clockwise above the equator, or clockwise below), but the system has to be a few hundred miles from the equator for the Coriolis force to exert an effect. If the system becomes organized and strong enough, with sustained winds of 39 miles per hour, it becomes a tropical storm. At 74 miles per hour or more, it becomes a hurricane.

A hurricane can be hundreds of miles across. It's like a big engine, with upper-level winds acting as a vent, pulling the rising warm air away from the storm. Rain bands spiral around the center of the system. Air sinks in the clear center, or eye, which can be from 5 miles to more than 100 miles across.

The "organization" of a storm plays a big role in whether or not a tropical depression develops into a hurricane.  As the storm draws moist warm air from the surface of the ocean, thunderheads develop and these cause huge vertical wind columns.  As the heated wind rapidly rises it begins to cool as it reaches the upper atmosphere.  In a normal thunderhead the cold air is not pushed far from the center of the cloud before in immediately begins to sink.  In a tropical depression many, many thunderheads are gathered together and as the spinning Earth's gravity pulls on them they begin to organize.  Much like the water in your bath creates a whirlpool when you drain it.  As this "whirlpool" of wind develops the thunderheads begin to merge into one massive storm and their vertical winds combine to form an eye.  With hot ocean water providing the energy, the vertical winds of the storm lift the warm moist air then as it cools it drops down the hole, the eye, in the center of the storm.  
Because the atmospheric pressure is so low in the eye, the water rises up there in a sort of mound. This contributes to the devastating storm surge when a hurricane hits land, but most of the surge comes from winds pushing the sea water ahead of the storm, raising ocean levels by several feet.

When a hurricane hits land, it tends to weaken mostly because it has lost its source of energy - the warm ocean waters. Friction might slow down the surface wind, but it also can enhance turbulence and therefore gusts, scientists have found.

The Saffir-Simpson scale is used to classify hurricanes in the United States. It was invented by engineer Herbert Saffir and former National Hurricane Center director Robert Simpson.

A Tropical cyclone is caused by hot water, where the tempreture of the warm water is 27 degrees celcius. Hot air rises over warm water and expands, pushing against the air already there, then cold air takes !!!!

a cyclone has nothing to do with a tornado, and quoting a definition of a cyclone doesn't count as an answer.
cyclones are formed by extreme low pressure systems over tropical(warm & moist) waters. low pressure causes air to rise, and the REALLY low pressure makes it rise rapidly, carrying moisture with it. Air rushes in to the bottom of the forming cyclone to replace the rising air, spiraling as it goes. as all the moist air rises to altitudes of cooler air, clouds condense and continue to build up because of the rising air. what goes up must come down, and rain occurs. IT"S NOT A TORNADO, all you people who said that are probably american...

A cyclone is a rapid inward circulation of air masses with a low-pressure centre called th eye; a cyclone circles counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere.

A hurricane is a severe tropical cyclone usually with heavy rains and winds moving a 73-136 knots.

And...

A typhoon is a tropical cyclone occurring in the Western Pacific or Indian oceans

i know how do cyclones occurs:

well first of all it begin all @ the sea which the temp of the water becomes greater that 27 degrees then the warm air rises quickly and cool air falls. The cumulanimbus clouds develops rapidly. At that moment the wind speed will be up to 200km/h.
(that's what i think that cyclones are formed)

A hurricane starts when a warm, wet mass of air over an ocean or sea starts to rise quickly. When air, water and heat combine, then produce a huge, spinning system of clouds, rain and wind. That creates a hurricane.

A cyclone is generally a low pressure air system surrounded by a high pressure and  hot temp. and moisture are the main factors responsible for the formation of cyclones hence they r also known as fuels of the cyclone. During the hottest days of the year when the temperature rises above 27c,the water from the sea evaporates and the air near the water becomes warmer and saturated with water vapour and there upon being lighter rises up to form thunder clouds and when the cold wind rushes inwards  or spirals to take its place , according to Ferrels law,due to the Coriolis force exerted by the rotation of the earth,the path of the winds become curved and also at the same time due to the surrounding high pressure(cuz the temperature and pressure are inversely proportional),the warm wind is compressed by the cold winds and this warm wind gets trapped under it and due to the friction ,resulted during the process cyclonic storms are created which are hazadous and have disastrous effect on the life and property.thats all i know about cyclones

Hurricanes form over land...i think... A tropical cyclone is where u need ta' start. It forms over warm oceans where warm, moist air rises from the surface of the water and mixes with the cold air (warm / hot air rises you see?) Because of Trade Winds and the mixture of air begins to spin (if no help from the wind, the air would negate itself i think...or at least nuthin will happen...ANYWAY!)...spin spin spin... Then! VOILA! u have a a tropical storm! I could show you guyz better if i could draw i diagram but hey. Cyclones / typhoons are basically names given to a tropical cyclone in different areas (cyclone = Indian Ocean, typhoon = eastern North Pacific)Here's sumthing i found over intranettie too:
"A Tropical Cyclone / Typhoon: has sustained winds of 74 miles per hour (65 knots) or greater in the western part of the North Pacific Ocean. This same tropical cyclone is known as a hurricane in the eastern North Pacific and North Atlantic Ocean, and as a cyclone in the Indian Ocean."
BTW...AS AN END TO THIS SINCE EVERYONE ELSE HAS DONE THE SAME...

How is a Hurricane Form?

Hurricanes only form over really warm ocean water of 80F or warmer. The atmosphere (the air) must cool off very quickly the higher you go. Also, the wind must be blowing in the same direction and at the same speed to force air upward from the ocean surface. Winds flow outward above the storm allowing the air below to rise. Hurricanes typically form between 5 to 15 degrees latitude north and south of the equator. The Coriolis force is needed to create the spin in the hurricane and it becomes too weak near the equator, so hurricanes can never form there.

   This question is quite easy to find. They have evaporation happening that forms the clouds. The clouds start to spin because of the movement of the earth and the evaporated water falls as rain. The winds form by the power collected in the waters that speed them up. This was mainly what i said in a project i had and i got a level 4 in it. I did a much better job at explaining it though. hope you finger it out bye

Tropical Cyclones develop over Warm Ocean and usually lose their strength over land. They occur when air heated by the sun rises, which than creates very low pressure. As the warm air rises, it produces moisture which eventually condenses into large thunderclouds. Cool air rushes into fill the void that is left, but because the Earth constantly turns on its axis, the air is bent inwards, forming spirals upwards, containing massive force. The swirling winds begin to rotate faster and faster, producing a large circle which can be up to 2,000 km across. At the centre of the storm is the eye, which is a calm, cloudless area, where no rain occurs and the winds are very light.

Tropical cyclones form between the Tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, in areas where the surface of the sea reaches 27 degrees Celsius. The intense heat of the sun causes great volumes of air to rise through convection. The rising air carries it with huge quantities of evaporated moisture from the warm seas, which are then carried into the upper atmosphere. This air forms an area of intense low pressure called a depression, usually accompanied by cumulonimbus clouds and thunderstorms. it is this combination of warmth and moisture that leads to the fact that cyclones generate so much destructive energy. For instance, warmer air holds moisture. One reason for the intense rain that comes with tropical cyclones is that the air is so warm that it absorbs a great deal of moisture from the oceans. This moisture eventually needs to be released as rain. The oceans south of the equator warm up more quickly because the sun's rays are more directly overhead. The rapidly spinning rising air creates a downdraught of subsiding air or high pressure in the centre of the cyclone(eye). In the eye of the cyclone, which is usually 10-40 kilometers wide, the air is usually warm and dry with only light winds. That is pretty much all i know about cyclones

Cyclones can form over warm waters where the conditions meet the requirements below:
1.   Warm ocean waters (at least 26.5c)
2.   At atmosphere that cools fast enough with hight.
3.   Moist air at about 5km above ground
4.   Distance of 500km from the equator, as some of the Earths spin is needed to maintain the low pressure of the storm.
5.   A pre-existing storm with sufficient spin and inflow.
Cyclones can form from thunderstorms over warm water where there is sufficient convergence (the winds coming together in a particular area). This adds to the circular wind. As the air converges, the thunderstorm becomes closer and more organised, and the large amounts of evaporating water are carried into the storm. As the moist air rises in the storm, it cools, and the condensing water releases latent heat which adds to bouyancy of the air and the rising motion in the storm. As the air reaches higher levels, it spreads out, and when this divergence exeeds the convergence lower down, the pressure drops and the eye of the cyclone forms, with the storm rotating around it. As the cyclone moves to areas over land or where the sea is not so warm, they lose their convergence and dissipate (grow smaller).

What is a TROPICAL CYCLONE?
Tropical Cyclones are low pressure systems in the tropics that, in the Southern Hemisphere, have well defined clockwise wind circulations with a region surrounding the centre with gale force winds (sustained winds of 63 km/h or greater with gusts in excess of 90 km/h).
The gale force winds can extend hundreds of kilometres from the cyclone centre. If the sustained winds around the centre reach 119 km/h (gusts in excess 170 km/h). then the system is called a severe tropical cyclone. These are referred to as hurricanes or typhoons in other countries.
The circular eye or centre of a tropical cyclone is an area characterised by light winds and often by clear skies. Eye diameters are typically 40km but can range from under 10km to over 100km. The eye is surrounded by a dense ring of cloud about 16km high known as the eye wall which marks the belt of strongest winds and heaviest rainfall.
Structure of a Cyclone (Schematic)

Tropical Cyclones derive their energy from the warm tropical oceans and do not form unless the sea-surface temperature is above 26.5XC, although, once formed, they can persist over lower sea-surface temperatures. Tropical cyclones can persist for many days and may follow quite erratic paths. They usually dissipate over land or colder oceans.















CYCLONE PREPAREDNESS and SAFETY PROCEDURES The information in this checklist was prepared by Emergency Management Australia in consultation with State/Territory Emergency Services to help protect you and your property.
h BEFORE THE CYCLONE SEASON
h Check with your local council or your building control authority to see if your home has been built to cyclone standards.
h Check that the walls, roof and eaves of your home are secure.
h Trim treetops and branches well clear of your home (get council permission).
h Preferably fit shutters, or at least metal screens, to all glass areas.
h Clear your property of loose material that could blow about and possibly cause injury or damage during extreme winds.
h In case of a storm surge/tide warning, or other flooding, know your nearest safe high ground and the safest access route to it.
h Prepare an emergency kit containing:
h a portable battery radio, torch and spare batteries;
h water containers, dried or canned food and a can opener;
h matches, fuel lamp, portable stove, cooking gear, eating utensils; and
h a first aid kit and manual, masking tape for windows and waterproof bags.
h Keep a list of emergency phone numbers on display.
h Check neighbours, especially if recent arrivals, to make sure they are prepared.
h WHEN A CYCLONE WATCH IS ISSUED
h Re-check your property for any loose material and tie down (or fill with water) all large, relatively light items such as boats and rubbish bins.
h Fill vehicles' fuel tanks. Check your emergency kit and fill water containers.
h Ensure household members know which is the strongest part of the house and what to do in the event of a cyclone warning or an evacuation.
h Tune to your local radio/TV for further information and warnings.
h Check that neighbours are aware of the situation and are preparing.
h WHEN A CYCLONE WARNING IS ISSUED
Depending on official advice provided by your local authorities as the event evolves; the following actions may be warranted.
h If requested by local authorities, collect children from school or childcare centre and go home.
h Park vehicles under solid shelter (hand brake on and in gear).
h Put wooden or plastic outdoor furniture in your pool or inside with other loose items.
h Close shutters or board-up or heavily tape all windows. Draw curtains and lock doors.
h Pack an evacuation kit of warm clothes, essential medications, baby formula, nappies,
valuables, important papers, photos and mementos in waterproof bags to be taken with
your emergency kit. Large/heavy valuables could be protected in a strong cupboard.
h Remain indoors (with your pets). Stay tuned to your local radio/TV for further information.
h ON WARNING OF LOCAL EVACUATION
Based on predicted wind speeds and storm surge heights, evacuation may be necessary.
Official advice will be given on local radio/TV regarding safe routes and when to move.
h Wear strong shoes (not thongs) and tough clothing for protection.
h Lock doors; turn off power, gas, and water; take your evacuation and emergency kits.
h If evacuating inland (out of town), take pets and leave early to avoid heavy traffic, flooding and wind hazards.
h If evacuating to a public shelter or higher location, follow police and State/Territory Emergency Services directions.
h If going to a public shelter, take bedding needs and books or games for children.
h Leave pets protected and with food and water.
h WHEN THE CYCLONE STRIKES
h Disconnect all electrical appliances. Listen to your battery radio for updates.
h Stay inside and shelter {well clear of windows) in the strongest part of the building,
i.e. cellar, internal hallway or bathroom. Keep evacuation and emergency kits with you.
h If the building starts to break up, protect yourself with mattresses, rugs or blankets under a
strong table or bench or hold onto a solid fixture, e.g. a water pipe.
h Beware the calm 'eye'. If the wind drops, don't assume the cyclone is over; violent winds
will soon resume from another direction. Wait for the official 'all clear'.
h If driving, stop (handbrake on and in gear) - but well away from the sea and clear of trees,
power lines and streams. Stay in the vehicle.
h AFTER THE CYCLONE
h Don't go outside until officially advised it is safe.
h Check for gas leaks. Don't use electric appliances if wet.
h Listen to local radio for official warnings and advice.
h If you have to evacuate, or did so earlier, don't return until advised. Use a recommended route and don't rush.
h Beware of damaged power lines, bridges, buildings, trees, and don't enter floodwaters.
h Heed all warnings and don't go sightseeing. Check/help neighbours instead.
h Don't make unnecessary telephone calls.
