Abstract Horizontal and vertical temperature variations along with true gust velocity measurements of atmospheric turbulence were obtained above hurricane Beulah (1967) by an instrumented U–2. The U–2 flight was part of the U.S. Air Force High Altitude Clear Air Turbulence program. Pertinent findings include: (1) location of the tropopause just above the cloud tops at 54,000 ft (100 mb) with a temperature of −86°C, 12°C lower than the mean; (2) a vertical temperature rise of 11°C in a few…

Progress in research on atmospheric turbulence
In ground- and tower-based instrumentation for direct sensing, few, if any, new concepts have appeared, but steady improvements in technique and reliability have been reported [Dyer et al., 1967;
Real-Time Rainfall Forecasts Based on Radar Reflectivity during Typhoons: Case Study in Southeastern Taiwan
TLDR
Radar reflectivity at the optimal elevation angle yielded optimal results for short-term rainfall forecasting, and the GRU neural network can obtain accurate predictions 1, 3, and 6 h before typhoon occurrence.
Extreme Gradient Boosting Model for Rain Retrieval using Radar Reflectivity from Various Elevation Angles
TLDR
Pairing the combination of optimal radar reflectivity and ground meteorological attributes, as verified by the evaluation process, with a high-efficiency algorithm (XGBoost) can effectively increase the accuracy of rainfall retrieval during typhoons.

Abstract. Tropical cyclones (TCs) are deep convective synoptic-scale systems that play an important role in modifying the thermal structure, tropical tropopause parameters and hence also modify

Characteristics of Hurricanes
TLDR
Tropical cyclones are warm-core, direct circulations in the sense that ascent takes place at warmer temperatures than does descent, thus converting heat energy into potential energy and potential energy to kinetic energy.
