 Thermodynamic constraints on tropical cyclone intensity and frequency

Research Interests:

  • Tropical cyclones
  • Available Potential Energy theory

Research Projects:

Thermodynamic constraints on tropical cyclone intensity and frequency

Supervisors: Dr Remi Tailleux, Dr Christopher Holloway and Professor Pier Luigi Vidale

This project aims to investigate the processes involved in the intensification of tropical cyclones using an Available Potential Energy framework, focusing particularly on the role played by irreversible processes such as water vapour diffusion.
