dust aerosol. This capability is not yet available anywhere within the scientific community, but this work aims to provide a set of requirements to plan such research. In particular, we have emphasized how the resolution is a critical parameter in being able to represent with some degree of confidence the fine sharpness of SAL intrusions in tropical circulations. No simulation can reasonably hope to investigate the complexity of the mechanisms involved with the interaction of the SAL and tropical

the conversion of the diabatic heating to kinetic energy based on the axisymmetric tangential wind, similar to what was done in Nolan et al. (2007) , was performed on the Dennis simulation to see if the efficiency underwent a significant jump or step function at the moment of RI (not shown). Rather than increasing as a step function, the efficiency steadily increased as the vortex intensified, including at the onset of RI. Further research is planned to identify the key characteristics needed to
