Storms on Pandora
 
Several months ago I saved some old threads I made on AF in case the worst happened so here is one.




Anybody else wonder what it would be like to experience a heavy storm on Pandora? Would the thunder sound the same with the thicker atmospere? How would the floating mountains affect storm systems? Even flying through a rain shower on an Ikran would be neat to think about. As a person whose favorite thing about nature is weather these are some thoughts I have.


Deepness of Pandora's atmosphere.


I was just thinking about how the combination of having lower gravity, and a thicker atmosphere together would affect the structure of Pandora's atmosphere compared to that of Earths. I would imagine that with the air being thicker and not having as strong of gravity to act on it that the thickness of the atmosphere may not drop off as quickly as it does on Earth with altitude, that may have some interesting implications such as it could be a reason why the floating mountains don't seem to be that "cold"( as even high elevations in the tropical zones on Earth will get cold if you go high enough(ex. Mt. Kilimanjaro), it would also be helpful for climbing Na'vi to not have to deal with altitude sickness as much. Just something I was thinking about.

hi Wind :) i have never seen this thread til now, tbh.

interesting questions and yes, i hope we see some Pandora weather phenomena during the course of the prequel and sequels. i am still quite taken with the unrendered concepts of Pandoran lighting/plasma storms seen in the unfinished/deleted scene DreamHunt, in the Avatar CE blu-ray. even temp-lighted and unrendered, the lightning storm scene gave me goosebumps, as Jake contemplated going to the ritual and seeing the vision of his spirit animal. maybe they'll finish/render this important scene someday...


rest in peace, AF memories :(

Kaltxì ma Ja'k! srane, it has been a long time and there have been many great memories from AF. I stil want to experience a Pandoran storm, maybe someday all the unfinished renderings from the original will be finished as that would be a cool storm to see

i am vastly excited to see Avatar film activity after all these years, and yes please, can we see weather conditions on the planet, other areas of interest around Pandora that may be a more harsh or demanding experience for other clans that are native to those areas. i want more, more, more!!!!!!!!!!
