Abstract:

The long-term goal is to improve the prediction of tropical cyclone track and structure so that warnings of the Fleet units afloat and ashore are optimized. Objectives 1 Improve tropical cyclone track prediction by demonstrating that objective aids tailored to specific synoptic patternregion combinations provide better guidance than existing objective aids. 2 Improve the specification of the initial outer wind structure in the tropical cyclones for numerical models and for forecaster understanding of the tropical cyclone-environment structure, and for use in surface wind warnings.
