The project has three major research goals 1 Assist the planning of TOGA COARE 2 Participate in the TOGA COARE field program and 3 Carry out a research program using the TOGA COARE data set to examine the mean properties and vertical heating profiles of mesoscale and larger scale phenomena in the COARE region. The work will focus on exploring relationships between tropical weather systems in this region and larger scale forcing, and determining processes that affect the vertical structure of the tropical atmosphere.
