cyclolysis

Any weakening of cyclonic circulation in the atmosphere; the opposite of cyclogenesis.

Cyclolysis, which refers to the circulation, is to be distinguished from filling, an increase in atmospheric pressure, although the two processes commonly occur simultaneously.
Compare anticyclolysis.
