AbstractIdealized numerical simulations of weak tropical cyclones (e.g., tropical depressions and tropical storms) in sheared environments indicate that vortex tilt reduction and convective symmetr... 

The Representation of Spiral Gravity Waves in a Mesoscale Model With Increasing Horizontal and Vertical Resolution

Recent observational and numerical studies have investigated the dynamics of fine‐scale gravity waves radiating horizontally outward from tropical cyclones. The waves are wrapped into spirals by the

Observations of Diurnal Variability under the Cirrus Canopy of Typhoon Kong-rey (2018)

A growing body of work has documented the existence of diurnal oscillations in the tropical cyclone outflow layer. These diurnal pulses have been examined primarily using satellites or numerical

The Sensitivity of Eyewall Replacement Cycles to Shortwave Radiation

The sensitivity of tropical cyclone secondary eyewall formation (SEF) and subsequent eyewall replacement cycles (ERCs) to shortwave radiation is examined in this study by varying the solar constant

Forecast Uncertainty of Rapid Intensification of Typhoon Dujuan (201521) Induced by Uncertainty in the Boundary Layer

Using ensemble forecast experiments generated by the weather research and forecasting model, the forecast uncertainties of intensity and its rapid intensification (RI) induced by the uncertainty

Performance assessment of WRF model radiation schemes in simulating the track and intensity of the super cyclonic storm “Amphan”

A Super Cyclonic Storm “Amphan” crossed the West Bengal coast on 20 May 2020 and caused significant damage to property due to wind, associated rainfall, and surge. In the present study, we attempted



The effect of vertical shear orientation on tropical cyclogenesis

The effect of the relative orientation of the vertical wind shear to the surface wind on tropical cyclogenesis is explored in environments of radiative‐convective equilibrium (RCE) through numerical

The impact of vertical shear on the sensitivity of tropical cyclogenesis to environmental rotation and thermodynamic state

The impact of vertical wind shear on the sensitivity of tropical cyclogenesis to environmental rotation and thermodynamic state is investigated through idealized cloud‐resolving simulations of the

Effects of Vertical Wind Shear on the Predictability of Tropical Cyclones

AbstractThrough cloud-resolving simulations, this study examines the effect of vertical wind shear and system-scale flow asymmetry on the predictability of tropical cyclone (TC) intensity during

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

Effects of Environmental Flow upon Tropical Cyclone Structure

Abstract Numerical simulations of tropical-cyclone-like vortices are performed to analyze the effects of unidirectional vertical wind shear and translational flow upon the organization of convection

Effects of Vertical Wind Shear on the Intensity and Structure of Numerically Simulated Hurricanes

A series of numerical simulations of tropical cyclones in idealized large-scale environments is performed to examine the effects of vertical wind shear on the structure and intensity of hurricanes.

Tropical Cyclone Formation in a Sheared Environment: A Case Study

Abstract The development of Hurricane Danny (1997) from depression to hurricane was examined using cloud-to-ground lightning data, reconnaissance aircraft data, and satellite imagery. Vertical wind

Impact of cloud‐radiative processes on hurricane track

Idealized simulations of tropical cyclones suggest that previously established motion sensitivity to cloud microphysical processes may emerge through cloud‐radiative feedback. When commonly employed

The Unexpected Rapid Intensification of Tropical Cyclones in Moderate Vertical Wind Shear. Part III: Outflow–Environment Interaction

Interactions between the upper-level outflow of a sheared, rapidly intensifying tropical cyclone (TC) and the background environmental flow in an idealized model are presented. The most important

Effects of vertical wind shear on the predictability of tropical cyclones: Practical versus intrinsic limit

The effects of environmental shear on the dynamics and predictability of tropical cyclones (TCs) are further explored through a series of cloud‐permitting ensemble sensitivity experiments with small,
