This increased hurricane activity is attributed to the warm phase of the Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation (AMO) — which began in 1995 — and has favored more, stronger, and longer-lasting storms since that time. It also marked the first time that two hurricanes have formed in the Atlantic in any November. These included warmer-than-average Atlantic sea surface temperatures and a stronger west African monsoon, along with much weaker vertical wind shear and wind patterns coming off of Africa that were more favorable for storm development. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) GOES-16 satellite (one of many geostationary NOAA satellites developed and launched by NASA) captured a natural-color image on Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. local time when the storm was at its peak strength. 1 of 7. — Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (@cleanenergyorg) November 11, 2020 On Wednesday, scientists from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology published a new study in Nature that concluded: Eta is the 28th named storm of 2020 which beats the 2005 record for the most named storms in a single hurricane season.
