I wonder if this form of monitoring can reveal more threatening weather like storm cells over land and other details like wind- precipitation or no.
I ask because I have noticed remarkably consistent "mirroring" of thunder cells on radar in relation to each other-- when I see that, I picture loops of magnetic force emanating from the earth at those two points (or one tight or long one- or even two distince points in roughly in parallel, depending on where the loop interacts height-wise and speed of travel relative to fized points on the surface and the atmosphere and it's angle to the globe) and the intensity of the disturbance "rattles" all the molecules of the atmosphere at these points creating the binding and precipitation.
The thermal signatures could perhaps be explained by the evaporation/shaking loose of constituent molecules in the higher activity areas (or their least active) and compacting, pent-up molecules between opposing bands/bulges (or within) of the magnetic field. I wonder if the reason poles are often so cold is that all the thermal energy of the air there is carried up and out into space to loop back in on the other side with no heat to deliver.
Tornados could be explained the same way a drain pipe is- the molecules, forced by a dramatic "vacuum" that goes into the earth below them, drives all the atmosphere light enough into a funnel that empties into the earth.
Where does it go?
I think that question is hinted at in the work you are doing.
Excellent research by the way-- I've always thought weather was %100 EM.
