Prediction of Tropical Cyclone Formation in the Western Pacific Using Operational Global Models
MetadataShow full item record
Recent increases in the skill of tropical cyclone track predictions have been attributed to increased accuracy of guidance from operational global models. As this skill increases, dynamical prediction has been extended into the medium ranges, and five-day track predictions are becoming more feasible. However, as a tropical cyclone can form, intensify, and move over long distances in that time, the need for accurate numerical representation of tropical cyclone formation becomes significant.
