2.Dr.Rand Paul\Senate Seat\Fri 5-8-09\Downtown Paducah, KY- Gazebo He didnt know that on the day that he spoke a inland hurricane or mesoscale convective vortex 100+ mph winds created an opportunity for the gov to step in and train the local people to bow down to the authorities in the region. curfews and welfare not to mention more debt for the bankers. Problem, Reaction, Solution. (State Sponsored Weather Modification) Still he's a glimmer of hope to save our CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

Silicon Micromachined Dimensional Calibration Artifact for Mesoscale Measurement Machines 2008 R&D 100 Awards Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM As we continue to design ever smaller mechanical systems (think chip-scale packaging and fuel injector systems), the need to accurately measure the tiny devices weve made becomes ever more acute. Vision-based metrology, such as with optical probes, is the industry standard for sub-micron repeatability, but until now no NIST-traceable calibration device has existed to eliminate errors. To achieve high-accuracy at mesoscale, the Silicon Micromachined Dimensional Calibration Artifact for Mesoscale Measurement Machines produced by Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM, features a nanometrically sharp yet microscopically long edge that can be located using a tactile probe on high-accuracy coordinate measuring machines. Chrome-on-glass grid artifacts can only be calibrated optically because they are essentially 2-D. The Sandia artifact gets its 3-D profile from the anisotropic etching of bulk silicon to create 54.74° sidewalls. When used to calibrate either vision-based or tactile dimensional equipment, accuracy improvements of a factor of 10 are possible.

Planetary Scale Baroclinity Part 2 [HD Video] CONVECTIVE CELLS Air converges (or any place that is heated more than anywhere else during the year) at the equator, there it rises due to the instability and condenses at higher altitudes. When the air reaches the level of thermal equilibrium, it is dry, and will then begin to diverge and move toward both sides of the equator. When it reaches near 30 degrees north or south, it will sink creating a stable air mass. This is why the primary high pressure systems such as the Bermuda high, and the Azores high are located near subtropical regions. Further, if you look at global water vapor imagery, you will notice that that most of the time the air near the subtropical regions in both hemispheres are drier than anywhere else. Now as the air parcels sink, they will warm adiabatically; some will flow back toward the equator and some will continue to flow toward the poles. Now, since the air that is moving toward the poles is adiabatically warmed, it will start to acquire positive buoyancy and rise again, and it is commonly known as the Ferrel Cell. Meanwhile, air is sinking incessantly at the poles, and this area of sinking air is commonly known as the polar high. So, whats next? The sinking from the poles will then flow southward and warm adiabatically. As it continues to move southward, it will eventually meet with another area of rising air (Ferrel Cell) that is moving northward. Once both of air masses meet, they will converge, just like what happened at the ITCZ. So you ...

self-assembled astable multivibrator circuit Self-assembly of a Functional Electronic Circuit Based on a Linear Mesoscale Tetramer. Solder droplets, selectively patterned on the faces of the blocks are employed to initiate, propagate and terminate the sequential alignment, registration, linking and electrical interconnection of each block. On contact, capillary interactions between the solder droplets cause the blocks to coalesce and self-assemble. Electrical characterisation following block assembly demonstrates the capillary force-based process successfully permits self-assembly and electrical interconnection of mesoscale blocks in a 1-D tetrameric format forming a functional electronic circuit.
Hurricane Forecasts of Katrina with a Global Mesoscale Model In late August 2005, Katrina underwent two stages of rapid intensification, and became the sixth most intense hurricane in the Atlantic. Six 5-day simulations of Katrina at both 0.25$^o$ and 0.125$^o$ show comparable track forecasts but the 0.125$^o$ runs provide much better intensity forecasts, producing the center pressure with errors of only $\pm$ 12 hPa. In the runs examined in this study, the 0.125$^o$ simulates better near-eye wind distributions and a more realistic average intensification rate.

E. Lansing Intellistar- 8/15/09 12:38 AM EDT On the sat/rad image, you can see an MCV (Mesoscale Convective Vortex) in northern lower Michigan. This previously went through northern Wisconsin, and dissipated once it hit the southern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, then regenerated over Lake Michigan and inundated the area.

Mesoscale Convective Storm hits Helotes, TX 5-14-10 During the early morning of 5-14-10, a mesoscale convective system developed to the west of Helotes, TX and moved into the area around 9am. In just a couple of hours, over 4 inches of rain fell and caused some minor flooding in the area. This is video as the storm moved in. About 5 miles away, there were reports of a funnel cloud, but no rotation was seen from my house.
Oshkosh Storm A Mesoscale Convective System moved quickly and violently over Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio on July 30, 2006. Winds were recorded at over 65 mph in some places.

Windie™ - Interview with Dr. Carlos Santos Manager of MEGAJOULE Inovação, Dr. Carlos Santos is talking with MEGAJOULE PR Specialist Katharina Stebel about Windie™. Windie™ is the latest tool for the simulation of three-dimensional flows over complex terrain. It stands out from other software codes, due to its advanced forest canopy modeling and its ability to be coupled with mesoscale results, producing much more representative solutions of local wind patterns. WindieTM is a registered trademark and code owned by WINDIE, Lda and used under exclusive licence by MEGAJOULE Group.

June 24, 1994 Mesoscale Convective System (Part 2) This was one of the largest and most active thunder storms seen in the UK during the 90's, as witnessed by a young me in Great Baddow, Es***. This is an edited version of the full video, but longer than the previous upload. This storm was particularly notable for causing a record-breaking epidemic of asthma in Southern and Central England, leading to a severe strain on emergency services and a shortage of available drugs and personnel. Quite a lot has been written about this and can be found via Googles.

Temperature Evolution in a Channel The movie depicts the 3D temperature field evolving over a period of one year. The model is a zonally-periodic channel domain meant to represent the ACC, forced with wind stress and heating at the surface. The forcing leads to a baroclinically-unstable mean state, which produces the vigorous mesoscale eddies seen in the movie (source - Ryan Abernathey, Marshall Group, PAOC, MIT)
