|Summary||This proposal has three components: improvement in understanding of the formation of tropical cyclones through a comprehensive observational and numerical modeling study focusing on the mesoscale contributions within specific synoptic-scale circulations in the Western North Pacific; improvement in understanding how the outer wind structure is related to the conditions during the formation stage and then are modified via external forcing mechanisms using both TCS08 observations and numerical modeling; and providing leadership and facilitating the TCS08 field experiment activities and in the post-TCS08 data management.|
