relevant physics. For example, simple dynamical atmospheric models, such as the first-baroclinic-mode models or the vertically integrated barotropical boundary layer models that have been successfully used in large-scale air–sea interaction studies, fail to realistically depict TIW-related responses in the atmospheric PBL. The highly baroclinic response of the inversion-topped PBL in the atmosphere to SST TIW perturbations calls for the inclusion of higher baroclinic modes for surface wind variability

important to understand the processes that control the inner-core structure of TCs. The structure of a mature TC can be highly asymmetrical, depending on both the complex interaction between the environment and the TC, and the internal dynamics of the TC itself. Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the asymmetries observed and simulated in TCs. A number of studies have emphasized the importance of the environmental vertical wind shear in determining the spatial distribution of deep vertical
