If you are looking for some research in extreme weather conditions, then you have to understand properly about cyclone and anticyclone properties. These are wind systems which are indicating the various weather patterns. Both are having opposite characteristics. The main difference between cyclone and anticyclone is, first one is a low-pressure system while the other is a high-pressure system.

Properties and Definition of Cyclone

Cyclone is happening in low-pressure areas where the masses of air meet and rise. It will indicate bad weather like clouds and rain. Winds in the cyclone are blowing in the counterclockwise direction in the Northern hemisphere. Winds that are blowing clockwise are in the southern hemisphere direction.

The air which is near to the ground are been pushed in the low-pressure center of the cyclone and then it is rising upward. It will expand and moves when while rising upward. When it becomes cool the air becomes more humid and this can lead to high humidity and cloudiness in the cyclone.

In 1970, the Bay of Bengal has seen the deadliest cyclone where around 5 lakh people had died in the Bengal region of India and Bangladesh.

Properties and Definition of Anticyclone

Anticyclone is commonly known as the high pressure in the air where the air is moving apart and then sinking. It is an indication of fair weather. Winds are blowing in a clockwise direction to the northern hemisphere in anticyclone blow and counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere.

The air in the center of the anticyclone is been forced away from the area of high pressure and then it is replaced with the blast on the downward side from the higher altitudes. Air is been heated up and compresses when it is moving downward which is reducing the humidity and this can lead to few clouds in the anticyclone.
