Abstract:

Our program involved observational studies of tropical cyclone cases, numerical simulation of a real-case, numerical studies of the beta drift using a three dimensional model and post-doctoral visitations to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center JTWC. The principal investigator and post-doctoral researcher each participated in detailed planning for the Tropical Cyclone Motion 1990 TCM 90 experiment. This entailed participation in workshops in Rainbow Beach, Australia and San Diego as well a substantial amount of time at JTWC. Research included work on surface station network augmentation and on synoptic forecasting in support of operations.
