      here are some patents that ‘ others’ might find interesting, especially since they concern, altering ‘ cyclones, hurricanes, and tornadoes’

      Methods and apparatus for affecting an atmospheric cyclone
      WO 2014093338 A1

      Abstract

      Methods and apparatus for affecting atmospheric cyclones and quantifying parameters related to affected cyclones are disclosed. These methods and apparatus involve attacking a cyclone chemically, without the use of explosives, with an energy transfer inhibitor that can interfere with the transmission of energy from the sea surface to the cyclone. The energy transfer inhibitor, if properly chosen and placed in a desired path of the storm, can deny one part of the storm energy from the latent heat of vaporization of water, thereby creating an imbalance in the centrifugal force of the cyclone. The imbalance can reduce the intensity of the cyclone and can be used to steer the storm. Quantifying parameters associated with an affected cyclone enables forecasting the cyclone’s energy state, path, intensity, or other related parameters and evaluating possible additional energy transfer inhibitor distribution.

      Hurricane Abatement Method and System
      US 20070114298 A1

      Abstract

      Methods and systems are described for the abatement of hurricanes and other atmospheric disturbances. The methods and systems comprise the delivery of various coolants in either their liquid, gaseous, or solid states and applying such coolants to energy feeding regions of the atmospheric disturbance identified by analytical modeling. The coolants are both cryogenic and non cryogenic. In addition to cooling, the cryogenic coolants create wind-sheer and large frozen objects in mesoscale model identified updrafts of an atmospheric disturbance from high altitudes down to sea level. All coolants bring about the abatement of the hurricane by the dehydration of the moisture laden air, the disruption of the stability of the hurricane winds, and the preemption of work by the hurricane’s heat engine prior to land fall.

      System and method for decreasing the intensity and frequency of tropical storms or hurricanes
      US 9078402 B2

      Abstract

      Submarines are provided with bluff-shaped surfaces and/or fins used for modification of tropical storms or hurricanes by mixing the upper layer of a section of a body of water with water from a lower section of the body of water. By coordinating a number of submarines to traverse a region of a tropical storm or ahead of a hurricane the cooled water reduces the amount of heat energy available to fuel the intensity and movement of storms. A perforated plate of approximately 100 m×100 m is used, with or without fins, to mix layers of water by creating sufficient turbulence to create eddies up to 50 m. Submarines are used to entrain fluid motion to induce anti-cyclonic vorticity in the body of water.

      Method for hurricane prevention
      US 20070101921 A1

      Abstract

      A method for hurricane prevention by cooling the surface of the ocean water in the path of a tropical cyclone. This method is achieved by displacing the warmer surface water with the cooler water below it. The method involves using a surface vessel, such as a ship, in a region of open water to dissipate or weaken tropical cyclones by positioning the surface vessel in a path of travel of a tropical cyclone. The surface vessel is equipped with a redistribution device to collect warm surface water as the surface vessel is propelled through open water, and the warm water is diverted beneath its natural stratification level and replaced with cooler water along the surface of the open water

      Method for reducing or calming hurricanes and/or other storms and for circulating water
      WO 2008030601 A2

      Abstract

      A storm may be calmed by cooling the surface of a body of non-stagnant water when the storm passes over that body of water. Optionally, the water may be cooled by circulating the water to bring cool water up from below the surface to cool the surface water. Optionally, the wind of the storm may be used to provide power to drive a pump to circulate the water. Alternatively, a liquid in a container may be mixed by placing a wind-powered pump in the container and exposing the pump to wind.

      Method of and a device for the reduction of tropical cyclones destructive force
      US 7798419 B2

      Abstract

      A method and device for suppressing the destructive force of a tropical cyclone, wherein the ascendant speed of wind in the eyewall of a cyclone is reduced by sea water pumped on-site from under the sea surface to above the surface, and then dispensed in the wind at the bottom of the cyclone in/near its eyewall.

      Hurricane and tornado control device
      US 20030085296 A1

      Abstract

      A method is disclosed for affecting the formation and/or direction of a low atmospheric weather system. Audio generators are positioned to project sound waves toward a peripheral area of a weather system. The sound waves are generated at a frequency to affect the formation of the weather system in a manner to disrupt, enhance or direct the formation. The sound waves can also be projected in a manner to cause the system to produce rain.

      Apparatus to channel large air masses for climate modification
      US 20140131471 A1

      Abstract

      A method for modifying the weather by channeling dry air masses over large bodies of water by means of an artificial barrier built at an acute angle as to the incoming dry air mass that comprises a low air resistance belt to channel air movement and a high resistance belt to deflect incoming dry air into the low air resistance belt that terminates at a large body of water. Once over a large body of water the dry air mass will readily collect moisture released by the large body of water by evaporation and then be taken by prevailing trade winds over land where the moisture will be deposited in the form of rain.

      Method for protecting a territory against cyclones
      EP 0699382 A1

      Abstract

      A method for protecting a territory against cyclones resides in the following: into the atmosphere over the area to be protected, on the probable path, along which a cyclone travels, a negative electrical space charge is introduced some 1 to 20 days before the expected arrival of the cyclone at the territory to be protected.
