Passive microwave quantification of tropical cyclone inner-core cloud populations relative to subsequent intensity change

Characteristics of over 15 000 tropical cyclone (TC) inner cores are evaluated coincidentally using 37- and 85-GHz passive microwave data to quantify the relative prevalence of cold clouds (i.e., deep convection and stratiform clouds) versus …

Vertical structure and contribution of different types of precipitation during Atlantic tropical cyclone formation as revealed by TRMM PR

Cloud evolution during tropical cyclogenesis was examined using the TRMM PR products from 3 days before to 1 day after genesis. Precipitation increases substantially within 36 h before genesis. Stratiform clouds, mid-level convection, and deep …
