Improved Tropical Cyclone Research Capabilities


 

  • Processes that strongly affect forecasts of storm intensity and intensity change.

     

  • Upper tropospheric Observations are sparse, limiting knowledge of environmental interactions and angular momentum transports into the storm.
  • Processes that affect track forecasts.

     

  • Processes in the outflow layer may influence motion of recurving storms

     

  • Flight-level data from 43,000 ft will provide observations of these processes for the first time.
