The statistical relationships between tropical cyclones (TCs) with rapid intensification (RI) and upper-ocean heat content (UOHC) and sea surface temperature (SST) from 1998 to 2016 in the western North Pacific are examined. RI is computed based on four best track datasets in the International Best Track Archive for Climate Stewardship (IBTrACS). The statistical analysis shows that the UOHC and SST are higher in the RI duration than in non-RI duration. However, TCs with high UOHC/SST do not…

Development of objective forecast guidance on tropical cyclone rapid intensity change
Forecasting tropical cyclone (TC) intensity and rapid intensification (RI) are major challenges for numerical weather prediction models. In the present study, a model post‐processing technique,

Validation and Application of Altimetry-Derived Upper Ocean Thermal Structure in the Western North Pacific Ocean for Typhoon-Intensity Forecast
TLDR
It is found that this satellite-derived upper ocean thermal information is applicable in the central and the southwestern North Pacific but not in the northern part, but since > 80% of the typhoons are found to intensify in thecentral and southern part, this regional dependence should not pose a serious constraint in studying typhoon intensification.
