    Interesting new theory on why tornadoes don't occur in all supercells...and amazing video.

    Fascinating concept makes sense in what he is saying but a lot

    more study needed i expect, always love to see time-lapse of

    gravity waves and that video is an excellent example.

    Yes I reckon I got that, thankfully the reference to astrophysics was only expressing that one should not confuse the Gravity waves of Meteorology with gravitational waves of astrophysics, or I reckon I would have flunked it :D

    Great video, definitely going to keep an eye on the sat photos for the waves. I take that many pictures anyway, so it should be easy to make a time-laps video, if I actually notice the subtle wave movements likely in the UK climate compared to the USA that is!
