A Well-Watered Land: Numerical Simulations of a Hypercyclone in the Middle East


A hypercyclone was simulated over the Arabian Sea for sea-surface temperatures (SST) of 40°C
(104°F), about 10C° (18F°) warmer than normal, to determine if precipitation could be enhanced over
the Middle East and explain biblical and paleo-climatological evidence for greater vegetation in the
past. A spur in the mid-ocean ridge extends from the Indian Ocean, through the Arabian Sea, to the
Red Sea. Warmer sea-surface temperatures were likely the result of the generation of the modern
ocean floor via seafloor spreading processes during the Flood. Cyclone Gonu on June 2–20, 2007 was
simulated using the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) mesoscale weather model
WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting Model) using a computational domain centered on Saudi
Arabia and extending from the center of the Arabian Sea to the center of the Mediterranean Sea
and from central Africa to the Himalayas. We present precipitation, wind speed, and humidity for
the cyclone. The cyclone changed from a high-category storm to a hypercyclone exhibiting greatly
increased areas and magnitudes of precipitation, wind speed, and relative humidity over the entire
Middle East.
