Weather of Arabia - Sinan Khalaf - As we gradually approach the season of tropical activity and the formation of hurricanes in the Arabian Sea, and given the history of the Sultanate of Oman full of direct effects of devastating hurricanes, what will happen if we plan to protect the Sultanate from future hurricanes by detonating them with nuclear bombs at sea before they reach the coast of the Sultanate?
We have a realistic example of Cyclone Gonu that hit the Sultanate in 2007, as the devastating cyclone caused the death of more than 50 people, and caused severe material damage to many major cities, including the capital, Muscat, and losses were estimated at about $4 billion.
In order to imagine the matter, we must first understand the amount of energy released by a medium-sized hurricane, as it releases energy equivalent to the explosion of 10 nuclear bombs of the Hiroshima bomb scale at one time at the same point every second, and hitting a hurricane with 10 nuclear bombs at once will have a devastating effect The deadly nuclear radiations will quickly spread through the winds towards the Sultanate and the neighboring countries, causing a major environmental disaster, and loss of life exceeding that which may result from a devastating hurricane.
