Title:Analisi di un mesociclone tropicale sulla Puglia
Abstract: The presence of a subsynoptic-scale vortex, formed over the Mediterranean Sea, is documented in south-eastern Italy on 26 September 2006. Radar maps, Meteosat Second Generation satellite images and surface stations reveal that the vortex had features similar to those of tropical cyclones. Numerical simulations using the WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting model) are performed to better analyse the event. The model is able to realistically simulate the transit of the vortex over the Apulia region. A brief analysis of the mechanisms responsible for the development and the maintenance of the cyclone is also performed.
