The Penn StateNCAR non-hydrostatic mesoscale model MM5 has been used to simulate idealized tropical cyclone-environment interactions successfully. To reach this stage, substantial model enhancements and additions were required. Early results have been reported to the community, with much positive feedback. Presently, further exciting results are being obtained and processed. Through the course of this grant, the observational component of this research took four separate paths. These paths are briefly described. The technical. accomplishments required and results are given as well. Results from all of these components of our research have been presented and published in conferences around the country and beyond. A number of journal articles are already in print, with more being written to complete the dissemination of our recent findings.
