Abstract:

The long-term goal of the proposed work is to advance our understanding of the relationship between large-scale and mesoscale environmental conditions and small but powerful convective events during tropical cyclone development and intensity changes. Our ultimate goal is to identify the necessary conditions that determine the formation and evolution of a tropical cyclone.
