Convection and Shear Flow in TC Development and Intensification
MetadataShow full item record
The objectives are: (1) to study the convection and vorticity generations in the vortex environment that may lead to the development and intensification of TC; (2) to study the development and evolution of deep moist mesoscale convective system subject to strain effect due to the horizontal shear associated with the vortex rotation; (3) to study the offsetting between (1) and (2); (4) to study nonlinear interactions that may lead to additional strain effects that may impact on the convection in ways that are not yet known.
