Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to improve the prediction of tropical cyclone TC genesis and intensity changes through improved understanding of the fundamental mechanisms involved. Accurate prediction of TC intensity changes is critical to Navy missions and civilian activities in coastal areas. Significant gains have been made in the TC track prediction over the past three decades.
