Food For Thought Lecture with Kelly Nunez Ocasio
Title: "Sensitivity of African Easterly Wave to Convection prior to Tropical Cyclogenesis"
The role of convection and associated potential vorticity (PV) generation have been shown to be significant in the evolution of African Easterly Waves (AEWs); however, how the evolving AEWs lead to tropical cyclogenesis is still unclear.
Kelly Nunez Ocasio discusses how the interactions between the synoptic-scale environment and the mesoscale convection (MCSs) modulate the AEW evolution.
