Abstract

The numerical simulation performed on the formation of Typhoon Robyn (1993) in the western North Pacific (WNP) during the Tropical Cyclone Motion (TCM-93) field experiment, is discussed. The mesoscale model (MM5) version 3 with an 81-km resolution coarse grid and 27-km resolution inner grid is used for the simulations. Various sensitivity experiments with different cumulus parameterizations determine the degree of intensification of Robyn. The model identifies the mesoscale processes responsible for Typhoon Robyn's formation where the background vorticity associated with the monsoon trough and passages of the tropical disturbances are both essential factors.
