Abstract:

The long-term goals of this project are to improve the quantitative accuracy and interpretative utility of official tropical cyclone TC track forecasts by enabling forecasters to successfully recognize and skillfully compensate for periods when numerical TC track forecast models are likely to be making highly erroneous track forecasts. The conceptual methodology for accomplishing these goals is the Systematic Approach to Tropical Cyclone Track Forecasting hereafter Systematic Approach conceived by Carr and Elsberry 1994.
