A43L:
Tropical Cyclones: Observations, Modeling, and Predictability I


Session ID#: 10973

Session Description:
Tropical cyclones are one of the most destructive weather systems on Earth and have significant social and economic impacts. In this session, we solicit abstracts on observational analysis and numerical modeling studies that help to advance our understanding of the physics, dynamics, and predictability of tropical cyclones. In particular, abstracts are encouraged on tropical cyclone formation, structure, intensity change and extratropical transition.
