Released through the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence. Over the center and excessive latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere the main well known and recurrent trend of atmospheric variability is the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). The NAO refers to swings within the atmospheric sea point strain distinction among the Arctic and the subtropical Atlantic which are such a lot visible throughout the boreal chilly season (November-April) and are linked to alterations within the suggest wind velocity and path.

Tymvios Abstract Flooding is one of the most common natural disasters leading to economic losses and death. This paper strives to highlight the hydrological effects of land use changes in flood risk in a catchment area in Cyprus (Yialias river) through the application of ArcSWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) in GIS environment.

1 Introduction Tropical cyclones are among the most life threatening and destructive natural phenomena on Earth. However, despite our knowledge of the climatological conditions favoring tropical cyclogenesis, a widely accepted theory for tropical cyclone formation and intensification does not exist. A. J. G. T. A. J. Ioannou between cumulus clouds and the large scale flow (Charney and Eliasen 1964), or between surface heat fluxes and the surface wind (Rotunno and Emanuel 1987). Another theory is based on the idea that patches of high vorticity associated with individual convective systems are quickly axisymmetrized, feeding their energy into the vortex scale flow (Montgomery and Enagonio 1998), a process that can be described in terms of the interaction between Vortex Rossby Waves (VRW) and the circular vortex (Montgomery and Kallenbach 1997).

The algorithm, at a given reflectivity image, defines a convective cell as a 3D region in which reflectivity values exceed a given threshold and match convective storms between two successive radar images. To be considered a valid storm, a track must satisfy a set of criteria and threshold values, regarding its own characteristics. Hence, the following have been set for the current analysis: 1. A storm track is rejected if it begins or ends after or before a missing radar file. 2. A storm track is discarded if its top is missing, since it lies too close to the radar (within the cone of silence).
