Convective Asymmetries Associated with Tropical Cyclone Landfall . Part I : f-Plane Simulations

  title={Convective Asymmetries Associated with Tropical Cyclone Landfall . Part I : f-Plane Simulations},
  author={JOHNNY and C. Liu and Calvin Chan}
This study investigates the physical processes associated with changes in the convective structure of a tropical cyclone (TC) during landfall using the fifth-generation Pennsylvania State University–National Center for Atmospheric Research Mesoscale Model, version 3 (MM5). The land surface is moved toward a spunup vortex at a constant zonal speed on an f plane. Four experiments are carried out with the following fluxes modified over land: turning off sensible heat flux, turning off moisture… CONTINUE READING
