Objectives:
Improvement of tropical cyclone forecasts through improvement of initial conditions for numerical weather prediction models by:

  • improving the assimilation of observations, especially core observations from aircraft, into numerical models

  • providing improved data sets for other research projects.
Methods:
This will be accomplished by, in all available basins by:

  • Testing various techniques for data assimilation (eg. LAPS, STMAS, 3DVAR, 4DVAR, EnKF) for convective-scale tropical cyclone core data assimilation.
