Influence of Environmental Conditions on the Genesis of a Tropical Storm
Numerical experiments have been performed in search of the favorable conditions of environmental wind for the genesis of a tropical storm. The low level basic flow has an impact on the latent energy supply which is essential for genesis. The upper level basic flow has to be coupled with the phase speed of the low level incipient disturbance. The low level cyclonic shear of the basic flow is conducive to storm genesis.
