Adam Samaan Wave energy accumulation and tropical cyclone genesis ( http://ams.confex.com/ams/29Hurricanes/techprogram/paper_168449.htm ) Summary: When easterly waves interact with the background flow there is a reduction in the longitudinal and vertical scale of waves, which increases relative vorticity and the likelihood of a tropical cyclone. Tropical cyclones could either be very beneficial or detrimental. If the system can withstand the cyclone a great about of energy will be produced. Scientists are currently studying the relationships of tropical storms and large- scale tropical modes of variability in order to increase their knowledge of wave energy.

One flaw with this article is it fails to state exact measurements showing how high emissions actually are. Clearly, research is needed to have a better understanding of the emission effects from hydropower plants. Works Cited "GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM HYDROPOWER."
