) presented a more systematic study and confirmed that nearby land can induce a marked asymmetry in the low-level flow. The aim of this study is to document the inner-core asymmetries of a severe Southern Hemisphere TC (TC Larry in March 2006) in relation to the two primary mechanisms discussed above, using data previously obtained from a high-resolution numerical simulation ( Ramsay and Leslie 2008 ). TC Larry formed in the southwest Pacific Ocean over the Coral Sea region east of Australia at 0600 UTC

” ( Straus and Shukla 2000 ; Pavan and Doblas-Reyes 2000 ). Coupled ocean–atmosphere–land surface process models have been used in the operational prediction (i.e., “one tier” approach) over the last 10 yr (e.g., Stockdale et al. 1998 ; Mason et al. 1999 ). The Development of a European Multimodel Ensemble System for Seasonal to Interannual Prediction (DEMETER) project was conceived to produce a series of 6-month multimodel ensemble hindcasts by running a number of state-of-the-art global coupled

using data from two independent satellites: QuikSCAT and TRMM. As estimated from satellite data, the TIW-induced SST perturbations can be 2°–3°C in magnitude, which are accompanied by large atmospheric fluctuations. The TIW-induced surface wind perturbations amount to 20%–30% of its climatological mean; the corresponding wind stress divergence and curl perturbations can be as large as their mean values. It has recently become clear that the characteristics of the atmospheric responses to TIW

knowledge of the behavior and dynamics of tornadic supercells. The purpose of this paper is to document the evolution of the Greensburg storm beginning when its parent storm formed and continuing until the Greensburg storm first approached maturity. The complete details of the subsequent evolution of the Greensburg storm and its tornado, and subsequent storms, however, will not be described here. The data used to analyze the formation and early evolution of the Greensburg storm include Weather
