Abstract:

The long-term goal is to advance our understanding of the dynamics of tropical cyclone TC motion. Of particular interests are the origin of the non-steering component of TC motion and the impacts of baroclinic processes vertical environmental shear, vertical structure, and diabatic heating on TC motion.
