HRD seminar – Annette Foerster, University of Hawai’i, Manoa – 8 September 2015

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 […]
