This study demonstrates how midlevel dry air and vertical wind shear (VWS) can modulate tropical cyclone (TC) development via radial ventilation. A suite of experiments was conducted with different combinations of initial midlevel moisture and VWS environments. Two radial ventilation structures are documented. The first structure is positioned in a similar region as rainband activity and downdraft ventilation (documented in Part I) between heights of 0 and 3 km. Parcels associated with this…

A new paradigm for intensity modification of tropical cyclones: Thermodynamic impact of vertical wind shear on the inflow layer
Abstract. An important roadblock to improved intensity forecasts for tropical cyclones (TCs) is our incomplete understanding of the interaction of a TC with the environmental flow. In this paper we
Effect of Unidirectional Vertical Wind Shear on Tropical Cyclone Intensity Change—Lower‐Layer Shear Versus Upper‐Layer Shear
In this study, a quadruply nested, nonhydrostatic tropical cyclone (TC) model is used to investigate how the structure and intensity of a mature TC respond differently to imposed lower‐layer and
Midlevel Ventilation's Constraint on Tropical Cyclone Intensity
Abstract Midlevel ventilation, or the flux of low-entropy air into the inner core of a tropical cyclone (TC), is a hypothesized mechanism by which environmental vertical wind shear can constrain a

Abstract The structure and intensity changes of tropical cyclones (TCs) in environmental vertical wind shear (VWS) are investigated in this study using the fifth-generation Pennsylvania State
Sensitivity of Tropical Cyclone Intensity to Ventilation in an Axisymmetric Model
The sensitivity of tropical cyclone intensity to ventilation of cooler, drier air into the inner core is examined using an axisymmetric tropical cyclone model with parameterized ventilation.
A Numerical Investigation of the Effects of Dry Air Aloft on Deep Convection
Abstract A three-dimensional cloud model was used to investigate the sensitivity of deep convective storms to dry air above the cloud base. In simulations of both quasi-linear convective systems and

Thermodynamic control of tropical cyclogenesis in environments of radiative‐convective equilibrium with shear
The potential for tropical cyclone formation from a pre‐existing disturbance is further explored with high‐resolution simulations of cyclogenesis in idealized, tropical environments. These idealized
Simple kinematic models for the environmental interaction of tropical cyclones in vertical wind shear
Abstract. A major impediment to the intensity forecast of tropical cyclones (TCs) is believed to be associated with the interaction of TCs with dry environmental air. However, the conditions under
