|Summary||A scientific basis has been established for NASA Global Hawk observations along a warm and moist air stream flowing into a convective burst region to the southeast of the pre-tropical seedling circulation center that leads to the spin-up of a mesoscale vortex that then becomes the inner core of the tropical cyclone. Global Hawk observations along a cool and dry air stream on the northern side will verify a physically-based hypothesis for why such a lower-level mesoscale vortex does not form to the northwest of the circulation center. Proposed Environmental and Over-Storm missions with the remote sensing instruments for the Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) will demonstrate their usefulness for tropical cyclone formation and intensification prediction.|
