Tropical disturbances often brew during the summer months in the North Atlantic. Many fizzle and fade with no consequence, yet a select few grow in strength and bring about devastating results when they make landfall as hurricanes. One of the great remaining mysteries of the tropical atmosphere is determining what conditions lead to the birth, or cyclogenesis, of these potentially life-threatening weather systems. One Naval Postgraduate School professor and his close colleagues believe they have uncovered a critical piece of the complex jigsaw puzzle of tropical cyclogenesis, and recently took to the storm-entrenched Northern Atlantic Ocean to test their overarching hypothesis.
