Processes of a Tropical cyclone:
Cyclones start when strong clusters of winds drift over warm ocean waters.
The warm air from the storm and ocean surface combine and begin rising. This creates low pressure at the
surface. Winds start blowing in the opposie direction causing the storm to start spinning.
Rising warm air causes pressure to decrease at higher altitudes. Air rises faster and faster to fill this
low pressure, which is drawing more and more air off the warm water and sucking cooler, drier air downwards. As the storm
moves over the
ocean it picks up more warm, moist air. Wind speeds start to increase as more air is sucked into the low
