  • Abstract The dynamics of tropical cyclone motion are investigated by solving for instantaneous motion tendencies using the divergent barotropic vorticity equation on a beta plane. Two methods of solution are presented a direct analytic solution for a constant basic current, and a simple numerical solution for more general conditions. These solutions indicate that cyclone motion can be accurately prescribed by a nonlinear combination of two processes. 1) an interaction between the cyclone and… CONTINUE READING
