"Recognizing the TC Diurnal Cycle in Operations"
RT: 00:45:38
Abstract: New geostationary infrared satellite imagery has revealed a curious diurnal pulsing pattern in tropical cyclones (TCs) that may represent an unrealized, yet fundamental process of mature TCs.  These diurnal pulses begin forming in the storm's inner core near the time sunset each day and steadily propagate away from the storm overnight, reaching areas several hundred kilometers from the TC center by the following afternoon.  There are marked changes in patterns of TC thermodynamics, winds, and precipitation as diurnal pulses develop and evolve each day.  The timing and propagation of these TC diurnal pulses also appear to be linked to the diurnal cycle, making them remarkably predictable in time and space.  This talk will focus on how various aspects of the TC diurnal cycle can be monitored and recognized in operations using satellite imagery, aircraft observations, and ground-based radar.
