Abstract:

A project planning meeting on dynamical tropical cyclone models was held january 3-4 1985 at NAVENVPREDRSCHFAC to guide development of a next-generation forecast model, or Advanced Tropical Cyclone Model ATCM. The meeting was structured in three groups an Operational group OP to provide forecaster needs and real world constraints a Numerical Aspects group NUM with expertise in the numerical modeling issues and a Data Analysis and Initialization group DAI to guide the development of the data analysis and initialization component of ATCM. Contents Operational Considerations Data Analysis and Initialization Issues Numerical Issues Research Plan Framework Operational Considerations for the Design of an Advanced Tropical Cyclone Model Summary of Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center Operational Considerations A Brief Description of the Navy Tropical Analysis and the NOGAPS Analysis A Review of the Dynamic Tropical Cyclone Forecast Models Developed by the U.S. Strawman Proposal for an Advanced Tropical Cyclone Model.
