What is the bombogenesis that has forced the cancellation of thousands of flights on the US East Coast?
Bombogenesis, as explained by the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA (for its acronym in English), is a term widely used by meteorologists, occurs when a mid-latitude cyclone intensifies rapidly, causing the fall of at least 24 millibars in 24 hours. A millibar measures atmospheric pressure. This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, as in the case of air over warm ocean waters.
The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis, which creates what is known as bomb cyclone.

So the pizza will end up, in all likelihood, giving off a slight olive flavor because the leaves of this tree are the ones that are most found in the analyzes carried out in a macro-investigation by the European Commission.
