The Blob Returneth?

A Rerun of Drought Pattern?

Oh-Oh

Pacific Ocean ‘blob’ appears to take toll on Alaska cod,
The Olympian, November 7, 2017.


I also noticed a bit of, “Blobing Up,” on November 7, on an update for the High Sierra Hazard Status page.

This Fall we seem to be getting an unusual set of “inputs” together, being a warm Arctic, an unexpected La Nina, and elements of a “blob” formation all operating at the same time. Sounds like a recipe for some classic Fall “Instability.”

My view of the seasons is that we have two periods of relative instability and two periods of relative stability. Fall is the period of instability growing as the heat of Summer cools differentially from Pole to Equator until a cold status is finally achieved. That begins the period of Winter, “stability.” The same is true on the other side of the year, when instability again grows as the cold of Winter warms differentially from Pole to Equator. That begins the period of Spring “instability.”

How long it takes from the end of one stable period to the beginning of the next is an important element of our “unstable” season’s characters. Another is, what direction is most of the action coming from? How is it changing? Then we can assess how the character and temps in the Arctic, the Equatorial Region, and across the Greater Pacific Ocean are looking, and affecting our questions. If the Sierra Nevada Range is the “dining room” where we eat the weather, the Arctic, Equatorial Region, and Greater Pacific Ocean compose the Kitchen where it’s cooked-up. We’ll watch it as it’s happening, then we’ll disect it afterward.

My way of looking at weather leaves us with two periods of rough “stability” (as they may be) known as Summer and Winter connected up together by two unstable transition periods, known as Spring and Fall. It’s an endless wave created by circles of gravity.

The only thing we know with certainty about our seasons is that the changing path of the Sun across the Sky will roil the Atmosphere and the Oceans in ways critical to our long and short term survival and prosperity. Thus, I’d say it’s a good idea to observe each of its pieces carefully. The charater and composition of the seasons gives us a lot of information not just about how our own desires and expectations are working, but how the fundamental engine driving all the engines of life on this planet are working.
