Large-scale Environmental Influences on Tropical Cyclone Formation Processes and Development Time
Journal of Climate
The development of tropical cloud clusters (TCCs) to tropical cyclones (TCs) is the process of TC formation. This study identifies five main environmental transitions for the development of TCCs to TCs in the western North Pacific by using a cluster analysis method. Of these, three transitions indicate TCCs that develop in monsoon environments and two in easterly environments. Their numbers, distributions, and interannual variability differ. On average, the development time, defined as thedoi:10.1175/jcli-d-19-0709.1 fatcat:r2mjw6pfqbauno72ppw7tr5q2i
