[1] Quantifying the relationship of large-scale environmental conditions such as relative humidity with hurricane intensity and intensity change is important for statistical hurricane intensity forecasts. Our composite analysis of 9 years of Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) humidity data spanning 198 Atlantic tropical cyclones (TCs) shows that(More)
The impact of model microphysics on the relationships among hydrometeor profiles, latent heating, and derived satellite microwave brightness temperatures T B have been examined using a nonhydrostatic, adap-tive-grid cloud model to simulate a mesoscale convective system over water. Two microphysical schemes (each employing three-ice bulk parameterizations)(More)
Measurements of global ocean surface winds made by orbiting satellite radars have provided valuable information to the oceanographic and meteorological communities since the launch of the Seasat in 1978, by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). When Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) was launched in 1999, it ushered in a new era of(More)
Wind force over the ocean modulates air-sea fluxes and regulates the crucial coupling between atmosphere and ocean that establishes and maintains global and regional climate. Hurricanes and tropical storms are generated by the oceanic and atmospheric physical interaction driven by force winds. Thus, it is crucial to have an accurate estimate of the peak(More)
