Abstract : The Joint Typhoon Warning center JTWC92 model for the prediction of tropical cyclone motion was developed by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Division 425, Monterey, CA. The project was performed in three phases: database development, model development, and model testing and implementation. The period of performance was September 15, 1989 through July 23, 1992. Progress was interrupted between and within phases due to the incremental nature of funding. Total funding for the program was $207,102, with $49,275 for database development and a total of $157,828 for the last two phases.
