    • The Dynamics and Predictability of Tropical Cyclones 

      Sippel, Jason A. (2010-01-15)
      Through methodology unique for tropical cyclones in peer-reviewed literature, this study explores how the dynamics of moist convection affects the predictability of tropical cyclogenesis. Mesoscale models are used to perform ...
    • The Multiple-Vortex Nature of Tropical Cyclogenesis 

      Sippel, Jason; Nielsen-Gammon, John; Allen, Stephen (American Meteorological Society, 2006-07-01)
      This study explores the extent to which potential vorticity (PV) generation and superposition were relevant on a variety of scales during the genesis of Tropical Storm Allison. Allison formed close to shore, and the ...
    • Tropical Cyclones in Paleoclimate Simulation 

      Zamora, Ryan Alexander (2016-10-20)
      This research examines tropical cyclones in simulations of climates very different from modern. The tropical cyclones are simulated via two techniques: explicitly tracking TC-like structures in global climate model output, ...
