Varied pathways for simulated tropical cyclone rapid intensification. Part I: Precipitation and environment

Two 1-km Weather Research and Forecasting model simulations of the rapid intensification (RI) periods of hurricanes Ike (2008) and Earl (2010), under low and high wind shear respectively, are performed to evaluate mechanisms linked to the initiation …

Varied pathways for simulated tropical cyclone rapid intensification. Part II: Vertical motion and cloud populations

Differences in the vertical velocity characteristics associated with various cloud populations are evaluated for two simulated cases of tropical cyclone (TC) rapid intensification (RI) under varying wind shear. Within the radius of maximum wind …
