Tropical cyclones (TC) sometimes cause destructive disasters in many countries by torrential rainfall, strong wind, storm surge, and high surf. In 2008, the western Japan suffered a record-breaking heavy rainfall related to Typhoon Prapirooon (2018) in July. Furthermore, two Category 4 typhoons, typhoons Jebi (2018) and Trami (2018), made landfalls on the western Japan in September and caused devastating disasters over the Japanese Islands. In the Northern Atlantic, Hurricane Florence caused catastrophic damage in the eastern side of U.S. Recent studies reported a northward shift of the location where a TC achieved the peak intensity and also reported increases in the frequency of rapidly intensifying storms. Thus, understanding the TC processes related to translation, intensity change and precipitation in the changing climate, and to provide more accurate forecasts and long-term projections are essential for the earth and planetary science.
Advances in innovative observations such as meteorological aircraft, weather satellite, supercomputer systems such as the Earth Simulator and K-computer, and introduction of new methods such as the deep-learning, have led to novel development of numerical weather forecasting and understanding of the phenomena related to TCs in the past, present and future climates. In this session, we welcome papers on various aspects of TC studies. We hope that the session will provide a new direction for future TC researches.
