The Exchange - Devils and Tornadoes on Earth and Mars
The Earth has a variety of Tornadoes and Devils, from the standard Water/Dust to the more exotic Fire, Steam and Ice Devils. Mars with a very thin atmosphere has the largest Dust Tornadoes seen in our Solar system.
Everything is a Devil
The Earths weather is part of a global electrical circuit measured and monitored by scientists. With an electrical circuit you need a flow of current and some form of discharge/exchange of energy.
The various Tornadoes and Devils are part of this system. That is why although in many variations they look similar and can appear in a great variety of conditions. It is not the actual physcial conditions that create them, it is the larger electrical circuit.
The image below of a Tornado system (The Devil's Exchange) shows a circuit of air and energy. similar to an engine or electrical power system.
Martian Dust Devils
Dust Devils on Mars are very electrical. They have a white lightning flash at their base and they also leave a dark scar along the surface. These Martian Devils are huge (up to 10km high) which is weird for a planet with very little atmosphere. The dust storms that can cover the entire surface and atmosphere of Mars start in a crater and slowly build up.

When you look at Water Spouts you will see a white area of sea surrounding the bottom of the Water Tornado. You also can get a mist around it (the same with land Tornadoes). One of the most intriguing features of Devils are the tendrils rising up from the surface beside the Tornado. These are where energy is being transferred.
Mist is the great XEchange process along with humidity and evaporation but mist is special. It is the sign of electrical exchange activity. In colder areas you will get Diamond Dust (Ice Dust). In the Antarctic Diamond Dust can form most days. Ice Dust is sometimes associated with a temperature inversion, which is layers of different air temperatures relative to the ground. Or to look at it another way different layers of energy and potential difference.
The Devil's Exchange
Water Spouts and Land Tornadoes are usually found in a distinct system with the parent Cloud. Tornados do not need precise calm conditions to form. It really looks like a power system (engine) and it is. How does hot/cold air constantly form this superb force of nature in so many different locations?
Land Tornadoes start when a horizontal Roll Cloud goes vertical. If the scale is not so big then a mini Roll Cloud may go vertical and cause a small dust or steam Devil without the visible cloud system above it. There may be a smaller XEchange system aboove it but not visible.
The rain at the rear of the XEchange system is very interesting, is rain just water that falls or does it very likely have something important to do with the whole exchange in the Electric Universe.
Why and how can you get multiple Tornadoes from the same cloud, appearing over hours or have Tornado Storms?
