Mesoscale Aspects of the Downshear Reformation of a Tropical Cyclone

  title={Mesoscale Aspects of the Downshear Reformation of a Tropical Cyclone},
  • Published 2006
The downshear reformation of Tropical Storm Gabrielle (2001) was investigated using radar reflectivity and lightning data that were nearly continuous in time, as well as frequent aircraft reconnaissance flights. Initially the storm was a marginal tropical storm in an environment with strong 850–200-hPa vertical wind shear of 12–13 m s 1 and an approaching upper tropospheric trough. Both the observed outflow and an adiabatic balance model calculation showed that the radial-vertical circulation… CONTINUE READING
