Evolution of tropical storm systems in a high resolution climate model [TOOCAN-DYAMOND-SAM] (courtesy Benjamin Fildier)

Background colors are atmospheric humidity ; patches are individual storms (mesoscale convective systems, MCS). The time frame is the last 22 days of the simulation.
Data used:
– The simulation is part of the DYAMOND-summer project…
– with global storm-resolving model SAM…
– The lagrangian detection was performed with the TOOCAN algorithm
