COUPLING TROPICAL CYCLONE AND CLIMATE PHYSICS WITH OCEAN WAVES
Grant number: DP130100227 | Funding period: 2013 - 2017
It is argued that without accounting for the wave effects directly, the physics of large-scale air-sea interactions is inaccurate and incomplete. The project will introduce explicit coupling of large-scale atmospheric and oceanic phenomena with the physics of surface waves which should lead to improved predictions of tropical cyclones and climate.
