Hallo, everyone! I reappear just to say I'm doing alright, and to ask one leetle question: What is the meaning of "hot tower" as a verb? It is in the context of a book on climatology, where the introduction points out that "the fourth (chapter) hot towers in the atmosphere, including thuderstorms and hurricanes"... Any help?

Glad to hop back in just for a moment and see familiar names and messages. I hope everyone is well!

Marianna

I think that "hot tower" is not a verb. It means very large hot rising cells of air in meteorology. Here is a URL about it, but probably not as good as your book.
