Abstract:

The goals of this PI team are to understand the physical processes that control the air-sea interaction and its impact on rapid intensity changes in tropical cyclones TCs, and to develop a physically based and computationally efficient coupling at the air-sea interface that is flexible for use in a multi-model system and portable for transition to the next generation research and operational coupled atmosphere-wave-ocean-land models.
