ITOP: Impact of Typhoons on the Pacific Ocean August East of Taiwan Dr. Linwood Vincent* Dr.Terri Paluszkiewicz, Dr.Ron Ferek, Dr. Dan Eleuterio Director*, Ocean, Atmosphere and Space Research Division Ocean Battlespace Sensing Department Office of Naval Research Arlington, VA Phone: Emphasis on Western Pacific
GOALS: Significantly improve the ability (1) to characterize and predict ocean impact of typhoons in Westpac and (2) improve typhoon prediction Basic science objective: Understand processes governing how a typhoon interacts with the ocean structure, the feedbacks to the atmosphere and storm intensity focussing on the Western Pacific. Typhoons Impact Upper Ocean Thermal Structure Six Months/Year Each Storm Has A 1-2 week impact on Ocean Thermal Structure Major Potential Impact On Mixed Layer Depth Numbers of Typhoons Per Year

US Navy (ONR, NRL, NPS) US Air Force SAR Providers (ESA, RADARSAT) National Taiwan University Japan Meteorological Agency ECMWF US Weather Agencies (NWS, JWTC, NAVO, FNMOC) THANK YOU ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDING SIGNIFICANT SUPPORT TO ITOP
The 53 rd WRS provided help and encouragement, in the planning process, helped secure Air Force support when it became clear the Air Force could not accept Navy funding, and then conducted the Experiment in their highly professional manner, as usual.
