Abstract

The interactions between the tropical cyclone core and an environmental wind that either changes direction with height, or is pointed in a direction other than along the motion vector, were examined. The numerical model used in this study was the PSU/NCAR Mesoscale model, version 5 (MM5). A tropical-depression-like vortex was allowed to develop for 48 hours in a zero-flow environment until it reached hurricane intensity. The results show that the beta-induced shear case possesed the least shear, the smallest asymmetry, and the greatest intensification.
