cyclone

1.a low-pressure area, around which wind flow is counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. The term is sometimes used to describe storms occurring in the atmosphere; in the Indian Ocean it is used to designate a tropical cyclone. 2. a device for the separation of various particles from a drilling fluid, most commonly used as a desander. The fluid is pumped tangentially into a cone, and the fluid rotation provides enough centrifugal force to separate particles by mass weight. ...

cyclone

(Learning Modules / Geography / Weather forecasting) A circulating storm around a low pressure centre. The term cyclone is usually restricted to tropical storm systems (temperate ones are called 'depressions'). A cyclone with wind speeds in excess of 120 kph is a hurricane in the Atlantic, a typhoon in the western Pacific or a tropical cyclone in the Indian Ocean. The winds circulate anticlockwise in the northern hemisphere....

Cyclone

In meteorology, a cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth. This is usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate anti-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. Most large-scale cyclonic circulations are centered on areas of low a...

CYCLONE

The CYCLONE, was a vacuum tube computer, built by Iowa State College (later University) at Ames, Iowa. The machine was placed into operation in July 1959. It was based on the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) architecture developed by John von Neumann. The prototype of this machine is ILLIAC, the University of Illinois Digital Computer. The IAS s...

Cyclone

(depression, low, low-pressure area) Area in the atmosphere in which the pressures are lower than those of the surrounding region at the same level. It is represented on a synoptic chart by a system of isobars at a specified altitude level (or a system of contours at a specified pressure level) which enclose relatively low values of pressure (or al...

Cyclone

A cyclone is an area of low atmospheric pressure. The term was originally applied to the violent storms which occur in the Bay of Bengal and other parts of the tropics, generally after an ominous calm and a sudden drop in atmospheric pressure. In a region where a cyclone exists, the pressure decreases from the outside inwards, so that the pressure ...

Cyclone

Air cleaning device which uses a combination of centrifugal and gravitational forces to separate particles out of an air stream. Contaminated air is introduced tangentially so that solids are thrown outwards against the walls of the cyclone and fall to the bottom under gravity. Irrigated and multi versions exist.
