In theory what would happen to a hurricane, if you nuked it?

Of course this idea must of been tested some time in the past, but what result do you people think nuking a hurricane would do?

Any experts on here that could theorise what would of happened to a hurricane that was nuked.

I am just saying this as its like a simple idea, that obviously they must of done, and why does the public never hear about the results?

Anyone out there have an answer to it. Like i said i am sure its already been done, but why also did they not tell us the results?

Radioactive hurricanes of doom! Run!

no, just teasing.... I have no clue... But honestly I have not even thought about that... I am not sure that something like that would be safe or viable... I mean, would it?

Detonating a nuclear device in the atmosphere= TOASTY FOR EVERYONE!

They have detonated loads of them now.

I am just saying like katrina, could they have stopped it with a nuke, or hurricane andrew?

They must of done it sometime, just to see i would assume. Come on now these people care not for environment or planet as a whole as we have seen in past.

Any clue on what would happen to the hurricane? I am just making a point here, that weather modding could be possible with techs already known to the public, but they must of tested this, and why does the public not know the answer?

Probably kill lots of sea life and create a radioactive no go zone for the next few years. Would it stop the hurricane? Who knows and bets it's not worth the hassle from protesters.

Im no engineer, but I would think that radioactive fallout would blow around in excess of 150 MPH! The initial blast would be enough to vaporize the precipitation though. I would truly love to see that question in action!

I am sure it must of been done already.

But like i said this was meant to be that weather modding in things like hurricanes must already be possible with techs that are 60 years old.

We know the military do not care about stuff like protesters, lol.

not high altitude bursts like these: www.johnstonsarchive.net... But the problem with detonating an atmospheric device you do risk literally blowing away the ozone layer, hence why I said TOASTY FOR EVERYONE! As for the other effect, you would ionize the upper atmosphere if you didn't vaporize it, an extremely high fireball would be admitted, communications around the world would be out with the EMP burst, and Radiated rainfall would cause localized fallout. All of that would be worse then a Category five hurricane hitting someplace.

thx for the answer, was just wondering.

The hurricane would just reform, only with a lot of nuclear nastiness inside it.

Are you sure about it?

Is there any theories on this subject, or papers done on it?

Affirmative there has been a huge debate over this very subject for your enjoyment: www.aoml.noaa.gov...

Why do you keep saying it must have been done already are you trying to give us a hint to something. Like turning a category one into a category five or causing a tsunami. My brother mentioned that thought right before we put him into a rehab facility because he was thinking lucidly out side the box and wouldnt tell us what drugs he was on maybe it was precog how do you know the techs are 60 yrs old can you back that up with some factual data.

Ta, nice to see an explanation.

I was googling but Golithion beat me too it, but yes, there is stuff out there that supports what I said.

Nukes came out in 45 isn't it? that is 65 years ago. I was asking if a nuke could stop a hurricane, which i think it already has been tested, but we are not told. I was wondering what effects from our engineering people here would assume the problems in that where?

I will assume they already did this, but i was asking why if it was done, would it been kept from us, and what effects would the engineering types here would envision that would cause as we will never know what answers they found.

But i would assume it has already been tested.

But thanks for all the answers

Not much. If you nuked it, it'd never notice.

The power of the atomic bomb is nothing like that of the storm, the scientists would have already figured out that if they tried it they would spread the material over a much wider area.

There have been literally thousands of Nuclear tests at all levels of the atmosphere. i saw a report a few yrs ago about trying to use a nuclear device to break up a hurricane, and it was determined that it would have little to no effect, possibly something as large as the Tzar Bomba might be able to slightly alter the course of a hurricane but all it would really accomplish is to make the storm radio active. Nothing is more powerful than nature, Hurricanes have many magnitudes more energy than a nuclear blast.
