Abstract:

The long-term goals and objectives of this research are to develop a more complete physical understanding of tropical cyclone TC intensity change processes. This year s work focused on the following three areas Determining the three-dimensional asymmetric dynamics of the TC core region Testing hurricane maximum intensity theory Analyzing the environmental influences on the intensification of Hurricane Opal 1995. Each of these projects delivers important advances in our understanding of hurricane intensity and intensity change. The main new findings are summarized below.
