Relationship between Sea Temperature Change and Tropical Cyclones Based on Argo
The relationship between sea water temperature with depth and the maximum cyclone wind speed was analyzed, the temperature was acquired before 24h of the cyclones occurred by using of data of Argo floats and cyclones in 2005, and taking advantage of inverse distance weighted interpolation method. The results showed that: (1) the Tropical Cyclone’s intensity had a strong correlation with the sea water temperature in the depth of about 42m or so. (2) Under the conditions of similar latitude, according to the energy conservation law, the maximum intensity of cyclones wind was a linear function of sea water temperature, depth, and continuous change in the overall rate, which was verified through the actual observation data.
