excluded snapshots during the decaying phase of TCs’ life cycles (i.e., after the lifetime minimum SLP min ) because our focus is on TC intensification. Tangential, radial, and pressure velocity are used to examine the TC kinematic structures, while warm-core temperature and relative humidity are used to investigate TC thermodynamic structures. The warm-core temperature is defined here as the temperature deviation from the environmental value, defined by averaging the temperature over a 2000-km square

; Browning and Roberts 1994 ). To quantify this concept of WCBs, Wernli and Davies (1997) introduced a Lagrangian method based on three-dimensional kinematic trajectory calculations. With this approach, WCBs are defined as a set of trajectories along which the specific humidity decreases in 48 h by at least 10 g kg −1 ( Wernli and Davies 1997 ) or which ascend in 48 h by at least 600 hPa ( Madonna et al. 2014b ). This Lagrangian approach is widely used and the analysis of physical processes along the
