Further examination of the thermodynamic modification of the inflow layer of tropical cyclones by vertical wind shear

Abstract

Recent work has developed a new framework for the impact of vertical wind shear on the intensity evolution of tropical cyclones. A focus of this framework is on the frustration of the tropical cyclone’s power machine by shearinduced, persistent downdrafts that flush relatively cool and dry (lower equivalent potential temperature, θe) air into the storm’s… (More)
