The long-term goals and objectives of this research are to develop a physical understanding of tropical cyclone TC intensity change processes. Towards this goal, this year s work focused on two main areas asymmetric dynamics of the TC inner-core region and completion of our intensification study of Hurricane Opal 1995. These projects are complementary and represent important advances in our understanding of intensity change mechanisms. The following pages summarize our findings.
