Much of them we had both acknowledged in discussion of one of your previous posts as Michael began strengthening. However, my hypothesis is based on the following train of thought: These systems are heat engines, which derive their energy from the ocean surface. Even if your engine is running perfectly, you have the proper fuel (warm water), if the injectors (lower-level convergence) aren’t working properly, what happens to your finely tuned engine? It won’t run properly, right? As you try to increase your RPM, the engine will sputter as it’s being starved for fuel (in this case, the fuel would be the feedback from W.I.S.H.E. processes. That’s how I was looking at this system, and I now have something to test next season but there is no question that the points you outlined above could easily be why my thoughts were blown to smithereens haha
Fantastic analogy Ray. And in all likely hood if given a little more time the engine would have started to fail and the engines horsepower output would have began to drop off because of it. But as they say timing is everything. With Sandy the timing of the incoming trough relative to where Sandy was combined with the perfect block in place led to its perfect scenario. Same likely applies here. Good stuff
