Application of spatio-temporal pattern recognition techniques to predicting extratropical transition of tropical cyclones

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The use of Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOF) a pattern recognition technique to analyze extratropical transition (ET) of tropical cyclones,is described. The EOF are applied by comparing the spatial distributions of 500 mb geopotential heights from many similar cases spatially referenced to the geographical location of a ET point. The spatio-temporal patterns help forecasters to predict ET intensification. The spatio-temporal pattern are used to differentiate ET cases using field data from times earlier than ET time.
