[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This simulation marks the first time a cloud-resolving simulation has been able
to reproduce the formation of a tropical cyclone, given only information about
atmospheric conditions on a scale much larger than that of the cyclone.n a key
step toward improving the prediction of hurricanes, NCAR scientists have
reproduced in a computer model the fine-scale structure that ... View entire text
