The Effect of Relative Flow on the Asymmetric Structure in the Interior of Hurricanes

  title={The Effect of Relative Flow on the Asymmetric Structure in the Interior of Hurricanes},
  author={Morris A. Bender},
Asymmetric structure of tropical cyclones simulated by the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory highresolution triply nested movable-mesh hurricane model was analyzed. Emphasis was placed on the quasi-steady component of the asymmetric structure in the region of the eyewall. It was found that the asymmetry was primarily caused by the relative wind, that is, the flow entering and leaving the storm region relative to the moving storm. A set of idealized numerical experiments was first performed… CONTINUE READING
