Feasibility of an operational tropical cyclone prediction model for the western North Pacific area
Elsberry, Russell L.
MetadataShow full item record
Recent developments in numerical simulation of tropical cyclones and in limited-area, fine-mesh modeling of non-tropical systems are reviewed. Feasibility of developing an operational model for the western North Pacific Ocean region is discussed in terms of a nested grid model. Boundary conditions, numerical techniques, initialization and representation of the physical processes are considered. It is recommended that several Navy agencies cooperate in the development of an operational model to improve meteorological and ocpanogranhir support in the western Pacific region.
