14 shows an image of three typhoons over the western Pacific Ocean taken on August 7, 2006. In all three figures the spiral nature of the hurricane or typhoon is apparent with a series of rainbands that surround the low-pressure “eye” at the center. In comparison to cyclones, tornadoes are much smaller in scale but can involve more intense and destructive vorticity. Tornadoes have captured the interest of observers for centuries because of their destructive nature on a localized scale, flow intricacies, and the difficulty in predicting their occurrence and path.

This is a swirling mass of gas resembling a hurricane or massive anticyclone. The immense size of this nearly two-dimensional vortex, its persistence, and its very high turbulence have provided a source of fascination to observers and scientists for centuries. 15 Tornado off the coast of Brighton, England, 2nd October, 2006.

The width of the spot is about 12,000 km in the north-south direction, and its depth is believed to be somewhere between 20 km (Marcus 1993) and 200 km (Irwin 2003).

This page intentionally left blank Chapter 2 Laws of Motion The laws of motion that apply to solids are valid for all matter including liquids and gases. When considering flow involving circular or swirling motion the laws of motion serve as a useful starting point. 1. INTRODUCTION A principal difference between fluids and solids is that fluids distort without limit. 1, then layers of fluid particles will move relative to each other and the particles will not return to their original position if application of the shear force is stopped.
