Abstract:

This paper presents the results of recent tropical cyclone research at Colorado State University CSU. Particular attention is paid to new findings which impact storm forecasting and modeling efforts. Observational studies using large amounts of composited rawinsonde, satellite and aircraft flight data have been performed to analyze tropical cyclone dynamics, energetics, intensity, intensity change, and motion. The genesis of storms from earliest stage cloud clusters was also analyzed. Numerical modeling studies on cloud cluster dynamics and the intensification of pre-storm clusters are underway. Future research in all of the above areas is planned to exploit fully the very large tropical cyclone data set which has been assembled at CSU. Author
