Title: The Role of the Mid-Level Vortex in Tropical Cyclogenesis
Abstract: Tropical cyclogenesis may be defined as the development and intensification of a low- level, warm-core vortex over (relatively) warm ocean water. Baroclinic processes may be involved in the formation of higher latitude cyclones and polar lows, but these processes are not necessary and generally do not occur in the low latitude regions associated with the formation of tropical cyclones. Based on observations of cyclogenesis… Show more
