ABSTRACT
The article examines the transition of 2014 Hurricane Gonzalo to an extratropical storm in Europe. Topics covered include unusually long track of Gonzalo, interaction of extratropical transition extratropical low pressure systems or upper-level troughs and the findings that despite its strength Gonzalo was within the historical range of transforming storms.

    In this study, we re-examine the hypothesis of the dissipative heating in the tropical cyclone (TC) maximum potential intensity (MPI) proposed by Bister and Emanuel in 1998. By analysing an integral energy equation for an atmospheric domain that encloses all the TC Carnot legs, it is shown that...

    An improved version of a minimal model for a tropical cyclone is described. The model is used to revisit some fundamental aspects of vortex behaviour in the prototype problem for tropical cyclone intensification. After rapidly intensifying to a mature phase in which the maximum tangential wind...
