Vortical structure generation is one of important problems in geophysics. At present, the generation of large-scale structures od typhoon type in the in the presence of helical turbulence has been studied well enough (Moiseev et al, 1983). On the other hand, until now the influence of topology on these processes has been studied insufficiently. Here we consider the influence of large-scale Earth surface topology on the origination of mesocyclones. In the present paper we dwell on possible geophysical effects connected with generation of longitudinal helical vortices in the vicinity of concave surfaces with a relatively long radius of curvature.
