The long-term goals of our research are to understand the nature of the interactions between tropical cyclones and their surroundings, and the impact of these interactions on tropical cyclone intensity. The primary objectives are i To evaluate tropical cyclone intensity change during interactions with upper tropospheric troughs, and to develop some rules to govern prediction of such intensity change and ii To study the outbreaks of multiple tropical cyclones in the Western Pacific Ocean to understand what large-scale characteristics are associated with these outbreaks. The first of these is an extension of previous work under ONR support, while the second represents our first concentration on Western Pacific tropical cyclones.
