Title:High-resolution hurricane forecasts
Abstract: Widely varying scales of atmospheric motion make it extremely difficult to predict hurricane intensity even after decades of research. A new model capable of resolving a hurricane's deep convection motions was tested on a large sample of Atlantic tropical cyclones. Results show that using finer resolution can improve storm intensity predictions.
