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.

Tropical Circulations Associated with Southwest Monsoon Onset and Westerly Surges over the South China Sea Chang, C.-P.; Chen, George T.-J. (1995-11);The earliest onset of the Asian summer monsoon occurs in early to middle May over the South China Sea. This onset is signified by the development of low-level westerlies and leads to heavy convective rainfall over southern ...
