Tropical Cyclones in Rotating Radiative-Convective Equilibrium with Coupled SST
Description: Tropical cyclones are studied under the idealized framework of rotating radiative-convective equilibrium, achieved in a large doubly-periodic f -plane by coupling the column physics of a global atmospheric model to rotating hydrostatic dynamics. Unlike previous studies which prescribe uniform sea surface temperature (SST) over the domain, SSTs are now predicted by coupling the atmosphere to a simple slab ocean model.
