Cape Verde system
Cape Verde-type hurricanes are those Atlantic basin tropical cyclones,
that develop into tropical storms fairly close
( less then 1000 kilometres) to the Cape Verde Islands, outside Africa,
and become hurricanes before reaching the Caribbean.
Typically, this happens in August and September.

Saharan Sand Image, Click here 
Windstorms over North Africa can mobilize up to 700 teragrams
(700 trillion grams, or 700 million tons) of mineral dust each year.
That's a substantial share of the world's total.
About 2,150 Tg(2.150.000.000 tons) of dust takes a ride on the wind each year.


4 Drones stationed in Barbados by NOAA
for investigating possible Tropical Storms..
But where are they?

Cooling the clouds?
Bill Gates from Micosoft want to
slow down hurricanes
by pumping cold, deep-ocean water in their paths from 200 s
ail-maneuvered barges,
pumping warm water down to the depths and bringing cold water up.

Vessels could be designed to be reused or to sink in place and decompose underwater.
The vessels could be moved into place by towing or by dropping from airplanes

Cutting sea surface temperature by 4.5 degrees under the eye of a hurricane
would actually kill a storm?
