Influence of equatorial rossby waves on tropical cyclogenesis in the Western Pacific

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The influence of equatorial Rossby waves on tropical cyclogenesis in the Western Pacific is discussed. A 15-30-day band-pass filter is applied to the data to isolate the equatorial Rossby waves from both the background state as well as other tropical disturbances with shorter temporal scales. The cycle of alternating cyclonic and anticyclonic disturbances persists throughout the life of the ER wave train. Within these disturbances, 11 tropical cyclones develop in association with the wave packet.
