The mechanism of the formation of floods

Post #1by Yusup » 16.06.2019, 02:26

The waters of the lakes, seas and oceans of the northern hemisphere rotate counterclockwise, and the waters of the southern hemisphere rotate clockwise, forming cyclonic gyres.
The main cause of rotation of gyres are local winds, flowing into the seas and oceans of the river and the deflecting force of Coriolis.

And the higher the speed of the winds, the higher the rotation speed of the gyres and, as a result, the centrifugal force of the gyres increases, due to which the water level of the seas and oceans increases.
And the lower the rotation speed of the gyres, the lower the water level of the seas and oceans.

The speed of currents along the perimeter of the seas and oceans is not the same everywhere and depends on the depth of the coast.
In the shallow part of the seas and oceans, the flow moves fast, and in the deep water part of the seas and oceans the flow moves slowly.

Seasonal increase in the water level is observed not along the entire coast of the seas and oceans, but only on those coasts where a high angular velocity of currents and, as a result, a high centrifugal force of water. (Centrifugal force F = mv2 / r).
On straight coasts where currents do not have an angular velocity, the water level does not rise.

The waters of the Gulf of Finland rotate counterclockwise to form a cycle in the form of an ellipse.
And when the seasonal storm winds and the flood river Neva rotate the cycle to 17 km / h, the centrifugal force of the cycle increases, so that on the east coast of the Gulf of Finland the water level rises more than 3 meters.
A similar pattern of seasonal increase in water levels is observed in all lakes, seas and oceans.

The average depth of the Gulf of Finland is about 50 meters, on the east coast about 5 meters, in the west of the bay about 100 meters, for this reason the linear and angular velocity of currents on the east coast of the Gulf of Finland is much higher.
As far as the depth of the coast decreases, the speed of the currents increases.

In the Gulf of Finland, the seasonal rise in water levels has two peaks, in August – September and in December – January and in time they coincide with the season of storm winds and the high water of the Neva River.
The speed of the current in the Gulf of Finland reaches 17 km / h, and the maximum speed of the current on Earth reaches 30 km / h, the wind speed is more than 100 km / h.

The waters of the North Sea rotate counterclockwise, forming a huge circulation.
And when seasonal storm winds rotate the cycle, more than 20 km / h (on the southern coast), the centrifugal force of the cycle increases, so that, on the southern coast of the North Sea, the water level rises more than 5 meters.
(The storm surge is more than 2.5 meters, the centrifugal surge is more than 2.5 meters and the tidal wave is more than 5 meters).

The waters of the Caspian Sea rotate counterclockwise forming a circulation in the form of an ellipse.
And when the flood river Volga rotates the circulation, more than 10 km / hour, the centrifugal force of circulation increases, so that, on the northern coast of the Caspian Sea, the water level rises more than 1 meter.

The average depth of the Caspian Sea is about 200 meters, on the north coast about 5 meters, on the south coast about 500m.
In the Caspian Sea, the peak of the seasonal water level increase is observed in June-August and coincides in time with the flood of the Volga River.
During a drought over the Volga River basin, the water level in the north of the Caspian does not rise.

In the Bay of Bengal in the season of monsoon winds, the speed of rotation increases more than 10 km / h, due to which the seasonal increase in water levels exceeds 15 meters.
(The storm surge is more than 2.5 meters, the centrifugal surge is more than 2.5 meters and the tidal wave is more than 10 meters).

Seasonal increase in the level of the Black Sea (up to 40 cm) is most pronounced in the southeastern part of the sea, where in summer the angular velocity of the currents reaches its maximum value.

The height of the floods depends not only on the wind speed, but also on the speed of rotation of the cycle, due to which centrifugal surge and abnormally high tides are formed.
For this reason, on different coasts with the same wind speed, the height of floods varies.

The assumption that the cause of the seasonal rise in the water level may be the pressure of the atmosphere, the flow of the rivers, the temperature difference and the salinity of the waters do not hold water, these factors may raise the water level by a few cm, but no more.

The presented theory can be easily verified by relating the velocity of the currents to the level of the seas and oceans.

This has nothing to do with Celestia.

You know, I think it's a spambot.

I doubt it - he has been on the forums for 9 months already...

Yeah, then I'm stumped.
