Title :Typhoon Development and the Sea Temperature
Authors :Ishijima, Suguru
Issue Date :30-Jun-1970
Abstract :This is preliminary research to appreciate quantitatively the role of the sea as an energy supplier for developing typhoons. Dependency of the typhoon development upon the sea surface water temperature was examined in the first place, and followingly the vertical change of the sea temperature over a point Tango (29 N, 135 E) in a typhoon passage over or by the point was investigated to make a rough estimate of the amount of the energy supplied from the sea to a typhoon system. It was ascertained that a typhoon experiences a development generally in a region with the sea surface water temperature above 28.5℃ and the inverse in a region below 27℃. No quantitative results were obtai ned on the degree of a typhoon development by a given amount of the temperature change at the sea surface. The heat supplied from the sea to a typhoon for a day, on the average, amounts to 7 to 15xl10^<25> erg.
