Early on the morning of September 24, 2005, Major Hurricane Rita came ashore near the Texas/Louisiana border. In the midst of the very active 2005 hurricane season, Rita caused considerable panic as it approached the coast, with scenes of destruction from Hurricane Katrina still playing on TV news programs. It left behind a swath of […]
Annette presented a seminar “Radar-Derived Buoyancy and its Role in Hurricane Intensity Change“. ABSTRACT: Ordinary tropical convection is generally forced by positive buoyancy, but rotational forces and a strengthening warm core play a progressively important role in organizing convection as a TC intensifies. Axisymmetric conceptual and numeric models of the eyewall are characterized by moist neutral […]
