Abstract

The problem of climate control of tropical cyclone activity was discussed. The global tropical cyclone (TC) activity was an important driver of the ocean's thermohaline circulation. It was found that this mechanism altered the Earth's climate dynamic, stabilizing tropical climate while destabilizing the climate of higher latitudes. It was observed that TCs were the result of a subcritical instability of the tropical atmosphere.
