Long dead, the moon-worm butterflies
On cyclone wings will reach this place—
Yea, rear their brood on earth’s dead face.

Of an earthquake and a cyclone a-havin' a wreck.

But he's doin' better with blood in his eye.

Alive with fish like little flames,
When the wind goes out to slay.

Like a cyclone on the sea,
When the lightnings blazed and dazzled
And the thunders were set free--
And riding on that whirlwind came
Majestic, Robert Lee!

Though she trod in the track of a whirling cyclone!

Many details in the process have since then been refined, such as the detailed physics of the dust sublayer forming at the midplane of the disk (Dubrulle et al., 1995), the trapping of particles in anti-cyclonic vortices (e.g.
Dust coagulation in protoplanetary disks: a rapid depletion of small grains
A custom and very compact DAQ system to generate and handle command signals to/from the chip (implemented on Altera FPGA Cyclone EP1C240), to read and digitally convert the analog data (ADS5270TI Flash ADC) and to store them, temporarily, on a static RAM, has been developed.
A Sealed Gas Pixel Detector for X-ray Astronomy
The two sets of peaks, respectively corresponding to two species of spin wave excitations lying in (cyclone modes) and out of (extra-cyclone modes) the cycloidal plane, exhibit distinctive dispersive energy curves that depend on their coupling to the electric polarization, as shown in Fig. 60(b).
Multiferroicity, The coupling between magnetic and polarization
The antiferromagnetic magnon zone folding, induced by the periodicity of the cycloidal spin order, leads to a very simple expression for the energy level structure of the cyclone mode.
Multiferroicity, The coupling between magnetic and polarization
This cyclone mode remains gapless, as expected from the antiferromagnetic ordering, but a gap is expected for the extra-cyclone mode due to the pinning of the cycloidal plane by the polarization.
Multiferroicity, The coupling between magnetic and polarization
The historically important idea of Parker (1955) — which was further elaborated by Steenbeck, Krause & R¨adler (1966) — is that the cyclonic turbulence in the convection zone twists the toroidal field to produce the poloidal field.
Dynamo models of grand minima
Specifically, their dynamics are affected by low-pass filtering, a finite gate propagation time τLG (τLG = 280 ± 10 ps for the Altera Cyclone IV FPGA), and a continuous input-output relationship described by a sigmoidal gate activation function.
