Abstract The long-term goals of this project are to understand better the mechanisms operative in tropical cyclogenesis and to transfer this knowledge to large-scale models in order to improve forecasts of tropical storm formation. Since convection constitutes the biggest uncertainty in this process, our focus is to understand how convection affects and is affected by cyclone-scale flows. Our objective in this segment of the program was to use our vorticity and thermodynamic analyses of developing and non-developing tropical cyclones to understand better the process of tropical cyclogenesis. In addition to results from TCS-08, we have added results from ITOP and the NSF-funded PREDICT project.
