Abstract:

Our primary long-term goal is to provide comprehensive descriptions of large-scale tropical atmospheric processes that govern the motion, structure and structural evolution of tropical cyclones TC. It is hoped that our research will transition readily into the knowledge base and applications needed by TC forecasters to better their analyses and forecasts. Another long-term goal is to be able to identify key problem areas in the forecast process that stand the best chance to be alleviated by the results of ONR-sponsored research. This latter goal is fostered by the direct interaction of the University of Guam UOG project investigators with the forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center JTWC, Guam soon to be JTWC, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
