A weather system usually associated with clouds, rain and/or wind.
Applied loosely: (a) any small-sized low pressure system; (b) an area where the weather, wind, and air pressure show signs of cyclonic development; (c) any deviation in flow or pressure that is associated with a disturbed state in the weather; and (d) any individual circulatory system within the primary circulation of the atmosphere.
In meteorology, this has several rather loose applications. Used for any low or cyclone, but usually one that is relatively small in size and effect. Applied to an area where weather, wind, pressure, etc. show signs of the development of cyclonic circulation. Used for any deviation in flow or pressure that is associated with a disturbed state of the weather, i.e., cloudiness and precipitation; and applied to any individual circulatory system within the primary circulation of the atmosphere.

When applied to Norris Geyser Basin, describes a basin wide or partial basin change in not only geyser and pool behavior but also water temperatures and chemistry. When a disturbance occurs, many dramatic changes can take place. Many previously quiet geysers and pools start erupting. Other pools become murky or change color. And many geysers erupt much more vigorously. Not all geysers are affected positively though. The possibility of a major Steamboat eruption seems to be quenched by the onset of a disturbance for instance. What causes the disturbance? Well, one theory holds that the disturbance is the manifestation of a second hot water reservoir interacting with the surface features. This theory is supported by the change in water chemistry. Disturbances were first noted occurring in the Fall and covering the entire basin but have since been recognized in other seasons and sometimes only affecting small portions of the basin at a time.
Any departure from the nominal values of the power source. Disturbances can include transients, electrical noise, voltage changes, harmonics, outages, etc.
