The Diurnal Cycle of Precipitation in Tropical Cyclones

  title={The Diurnal Cycle of Precipitation in Tropical Cyclones},
  author={Kenneth P. Bowman and Megan Fowler},
Position and intensity data from the International Best Track Archive for Climate Stewardship (IBTrACS) are combined with global, gridded precipitation estimates from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)Multisatellite PrecipitationAnalysis (TMPA) for the period 1998–2013 to study the diurnal cycle of precipitation in tropical cyclones. The comprehensive global coverage and large sample size afforded by the two datasets allow robust statistical analysis of storm-averaged diurnal… CONTINUE READING
