A recent study, which was conducted by the Florida State University, showed that ozone levels drop as the Hurricanes get bigger. The NASA funded study looked at readings in the upper atmosphere of 12 storms. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Hurricane Center (NHC) which forecasts Hurricanes uses the eye to pin point the Hurricanes position and with that data a hundred mile radius was taken and the ozone was measured.
Ozone keeps out harmful sun rays know to cause cancer. When it is in the lower atmosphere we consider it pollution, as it is harmful to breath. The study showed a strong relationship with regards to ozone, air pressure and spin of hurricanes.
I propose we find a way to steer these Hurricanes over diseased areas of the ocean, such as algae blooms, because it appears the Hurricanes, suck down the upper atmosphere ozone. By doing so the ozone would be forced to the surface and kill the red tides, which kill sea life and cause dead zones. First however we must study more to find out how concentrated the ozone becomes as it is sucked into the storms system and where it goes. Once we know that we maybe able to use this incredible force of nature to take care of this looming problem of the algae blooms and red tides? It might be possible, one never knows.
Within this next decade we will be able to control Hurricanes and Typhoons in order to slightly alter their course to avoid large cities from direct hits and in doing so we may learn what other great things we can do to help other problems which plague our oceans by using the Hurricanes and Typhoons power as a friendly source of raw energy instead of destructive force which threatens our civilizations existence? Think on this.
