ITOP project descriptionImpact of Typhoons on the Ocean in the Pacific
SummaryThe Impacts of Typhoons on the Ocean in the Pacific (ITOP) program is a multi-national field campaign that aims to study the ocean response to typhoons in the western Pacific Ocean.
ITOP is focused on the following scientific questions:
How does the cold wake of a typhoon form and dissipate?
What are the air-sea fluxes for winds greater than 30 m/s?
How do ocean eddies affect typhoons and the response to typhoons?
What is the surface wave field under typhoons?
How is typhoon genesis related to environmental factors?
