A tropical cyclone converts stored thermal energy located in water molecules into turbulent wind energy by giving up heat through the process called?

A tropical cyclone converts stored thermal energy located in water molecules into turbulent wind energy by giving up heat through the process called condensation. A tropical cyclone is the generic term for a low pressure system over tropical.

Why did Hurricane Sandy status chang to Tropical Cyclone?

The system actually started out as a tropical cyclone, which is what a hurricane is. Its status was changed to a post-tropical cyclone, which may also be called an extratropical cyclone. A tropical cyclone has a warm core, is powered by convection of warm, moist air, and is generally not associated with fronts. An extratropical cyclone has a cold core, is driven by temperature contrasts, and is connected to fronts. As Hurricane Sandy moved north into a relatively cold environment, it began to lose its tropical charcteristics. The collision of its tropical air with colder air led to the formation of fronts. This was aided by the storm interacting with a cold front to the west, connected with a different system. This process took several days, and was complete shortly before Sandy made landfall in New Jersey.

How can a hurricane strengthen over cold water?

A true hurricane cannot strength over cold water. However, hurricanes that move into colder environments can undergo a process called extratropical transition in which they lose tropical characteristics. After this is complete the storm is no longer a hurricane but is considered an extratropical cyclone. These storm systems gain their strength from temperature contrasts rather than warm water. A hurricane undergoing this transition brings tropical air into a cold environment, creating conditions ideal for a very powerful extratropical cyclone.

High-altitude airflow blows from west to east In the process how might it power both an anticyclone in the west and a neighboring cyclone to the east?

By supplying air to the anticyclone and receiving air from the cyclone

What are the causes of cyclone?

In meteorology, a cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth.[1][2]This is usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate anti-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. Most large-scale cyclonic circulations are centered on areas of low atmospheric pressure.[3][4]The largest low-pressure systems are cold-core polar cyclones and extratropical cyclones which lie on the synoptic scale. According to theNHC glossary, warm-core cyclones such astropical cyclones and subtropical cyclones also lie within the synoptic scale.[5]Mesocyclones, tornadoes and dust devils lie within the smaller mesoscale.[6]Upper level cyclones can exist without the presence of a surface low, and can pinch off from the base of the Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough during the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere. Cyclones have also been seen on extraterrestrial planets, such as Mars and Neptune.[7][8]Cyclogenesis describes the process of cyclone formation and intensification.[9]Extratropical cyclones form as waves in large regions of enhanced mid-latitude temperature contrasts called baroclinic zones. These zones contract to form weather fronts as the cyclonic circulation closes and intensifies. Later in their life cycle, cyclones occlude as cold core systems. A cyclone's track is guided over the course of its 2 to 6 day life cycle by the steering flow of the cancer or subtropical jet stream. Weather fronts separate two masses of air of different densities and are associated with the most prominent meteorological phenomena. Air masses separated by a front may differ intemperature or humidity. Strong cold fronts typically feature narrow bands of thunderstorms and severe weather, and may on occasion be preceded by squall lines or dry lines. They form west of the circulation center and generally move from west to east. Warm fronts form east of the cyclone center and are usually preceded by stratiform precipitation and fog. They move polewardahead of the cyclone path. Occluded fronts form late in the cyclone life cycle near the center of the cyclone and often wrap around the storm center.Tropical cyclogenesis describes the process of development of tropical cyclones. Tropical cyclones form due to latent heat driven by significant thunderstorm activity, and are warm core.[10]Cyclones can transition between extratropical, subtropical, and tropical phases under the right conditions. Mesocyclones form as warm core cyclones over land, and can lead to tornadoformation.[11]Waterspouts can also form from mesocyclones, but more often develop from environments of high instability and low vertical wind shear.[12]In the Atlantic basin, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), a cyclone in the Indian Ocean and parts of the Pacific, and a typhoon in the Northwest Pacific region.[13]

What causes tropical cyclones to die out?

Usually tropical cyclones die out over colder water that cuts off the warm moist air flow they need to continue growing. The same process works out over land but at a much quicker pace.
