Research and Publications, including Applications to Multi-Seasonal Weather Forecasting and the Understanding of Climatic Variations:

Research Meteorologist (post-doctoral), under Dr. Jacob Bjerknes, Professor Emeritus of Meteorology, UCLA, and world-renowned author and founder of modern meteorology.  Major pioneering research publication, and dedicated to the memory of Dr. Bjerknes.

Pyke, Charles B.:  Effects of Equatorial Pacific Ocean Temperatures on Weather Patterns in the Western and Southern United States.

Pioneering research paper (post-doctoral) on the effects of El Niño and La Niña upon weather and precipitation patterns from California to Georgia.  

Comprehensive  Multi-Hundred Page Research Publication demonstrates that regions from Southern and Central California, eastward to Georgia and northern Florida, experience above normal to much above normal precipitation from January into April during El Niño years, flooding larger river basins.

Paper was published in a major NORPAX (North Pacific Experiment) compendium of top meteorological and oceanographic research papers, including other pioneering studies by Dr. J. Bjerknes, Dr. J. Namias, and other very prominent meteorologists and oceanographers,

Major applications to long-range meteorological forecasting, including  seasonal and multi-seasonal weather outlooks, and to water resources and flood control operations over large portions of the United States. 

Doctoral Student of  Dr. J. Bjerknes, Professor Emeritus of Meteorology, UCLA.   Also studied with, and published a joint research paper under  Dr. William D.. Bonner,  Associate Professor of Meteorology, UCLA.

Pyke, Charles B.:  "Some Meteorological Aspects of the Seasonal Distribution of Precipitation in the Western United States and Baja California." 

Doctoral Dissertation, written and published under Prof. Bjerknes. 

The month of maximum precipitation along the west coast of the United States progresses southward from November in northwestern Washington to February in Southern California, then jumps back to December in Baja California because of the warmer ocean during the late fall southwest of Baja California.   Eastern slopes of major mountain ranges also experience more early-season precipitation, as winds blowing toward warmer water off the coast are uplifted over the eastern slopes of the mountains, while western slopes receive more late-season rain and snow, as winds blowing toward the warming interior rise over the west slopes of the mountains.

Significant applications to the understanding of seasonal variations in precipitation west and east of major mountain ranges, and to quantitative precipitation forecasting in different seasons.

Pyke, Charles B.,  W.D. Bonner, and R.J. Hickey. 

Research paper, written and published under Prof. Bonner. 

Analysis of major flood-producing January 1969 storms in Southern California, when satellite charts showed giant plumes of heavy tropical cloudiness streaming northward from near the equator directly into Southern California, colliding with cool, moist air from the Gulf of Alaska -- thus greatly enhancing the rainfall in Southern California (up to 55 inches in 11 days along the southern slopes of the mountains northeast of Los Angeles). 

Major applications to the forecasting of intense western U.S. storms, and to the determination of probable maximum precipitation for the safety of dams, plus 100-year rainfall, as well as to other flood-control studies and operations .

Graduate Student of  Dr. J. Bjerknes, Professor of Meteorology, UCLA. 

Pyke, Charles B.: 

Master's Thesis on precipitation patterns of California, written and published under Prof. Bjerknes: 

Research into geographic sizes of West Coast storms and the negative correlations of wet and dry precipitation patterns between Southern California and the Pacific Northwest . . . plus . . . An analysis of the past 150 years of West Coast precipitation shows periods of highly anomalous above and below normal precipitation for various months and seasons, lasting 15 to 30 years.  Included are the frequencies of tropical storms moving northward into Southern California, especially the Santa Barbara area, during early decades of the 20th Century.  This research paper turned out to be predecessor discovery of climatic variations later found to be major components of the  Pacific Decadal Oscillation.  

Significant applications to storm forecasting and to multi-decadal variations in Pacific storm tracks and long-term rainfall and snowfall conditions throughout the western United States, including short-term climate fluctuations (not associated with any Global Warming or Cooling).

Undergraduate Student Meteorology Major.  Physics, Mathematics, Climatology, and Geography Minors.

Pyke, Charles B.:  "On the Role of Air-Sea Interaction in the Development of Cyclones."  Written under Dr. Joanne Malkus  (later -- and now the late -- Dr. Joanne Simpson), Professor of Meteorology, UCLA.  

Oceanic storms centered a few hundred kilometers off the coast of a continent frequently intensify rapidly when cold continental air pours out over warmer ocean water, and thermal energy becomes converted into kinetic energy, increasing the storm's circulation and hence its winds and precipitation.  This is frequently seen in the Gulf of Alaska and off the East Coast of the United States, where major "nor'easters" develop and very rapidly intensify off of the Mid-Atlantic States, New England, and southeastern Canada. 

Paper won national MacElwane Award for original pioneering undergraduate research paper

This research paper was published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, and was featured as their lead paper, with a full-page front cover illustration, depicting the wind and waves of a major storm at sea -- demonstrating the air-sea interaction discussed in this paper. 

Major application to the understanding of the rapid development of oceanic storms when fed by cold air pouring out from land masses, and to the forecasting of intense oceanic storms, including "perfect storm" scenarios.   Hurricane Sandy, late October 2012, exhibited some characteristics of this type of storm.
