New info on Deserts and Saharasia

A couple of new discoveries on the forefront of desertification, which provide further confirmation for Reich's theory of Cosmic Superimposition, as well as for my Saharasia findings.

The first item confirms Reich's views on energetic superimposition and dor-sequestration as a primary function of the hurricane.  The second details more evidence on the Saharan wet-period, another gigantic lake found in what is today barren desert sands.  J.D.

1. Dusty Hurricanes

April 13, 2007: Throw gasoline on a fire, and the flames swell to a raging inferno. Throw dirt on a fire, and the flames suffocate. But what happens when you throw dirt on a hurricane?  It's a serious question.
Hurricanes are born in Atlantic waters just off the west coast of Africa. Thunderstorms gather there and, sometimes, for reasons no one fully understands, they merge into swirling monster storms that can cross the ocean to hit the United States thousands of miles away.

The place where hurricanes are born is very close to the Sahara desert-a prodigious source of fine dirt and dust-and Sahara dust storms can blow right into the hurricane genesis region. What does all that dry, dusty air do to a baby hurricane? This is a mystery of hurricane science.

"We sampled one particular storm two days in a row," recalls Lapenta. "On the first day, our instruments detected very little dust in the storm system. It was clean and pristine. But the next day, using the same aircraft and the same instruments, we detected lots of dust." From one day to the next, the storm system had behaved like a dust mop, swooping up tiny particles from the atmosphere and pulling them in.

What happened next? The storm eventually went on to form a category three hurricane, Helene, one of the strongest of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season.

So dust promotes hurricanes, right? Lapenta isn't ready to leap to that conclusion. "It's a very complicated problem," he explains. "Dust is one factor in hurricane formation, but there are many others, too." Atmospheric winds, humidity, sea-surface temperature-they all play a role. The effect of dust may be "situation dependent," meaning it depends on what the rest of the atmosphere is doing when the dust hits. "We're still analyzing our data to get the whole picture," he says.

2.  Ancient Mega-Lake Discovered in Darfur

Scientists using radar techniques have peeled away the sandy cloak blanketing Darfur's parched landscape to reveal an ancient basin that once housed a mega-lake larger than Lake Erie.
"When you go into these deserts and you look at the land, it's so dry and lifeless you think there has never been anything alive there. Then you look in the past, and you see there were rivers and lakes," said study team member Farouk El-Baz, director of Boston University Center for Remote Sensing.
Dubbed the Northern Darfur Mega-lake, the large pool of water is estimated to have sprawled over nearly 12,000 square miles during its heyday, with 600 cubic miles of water when filled to the brim.
