Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute,
The University of Tokyo

A joint research team led by Dr. Masuo Nakano, Department of Seamless Environmental Prediction Research (DSEP) at Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC: Asahiko Taira, President) and Prof. Masaki Satoh, Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute at The University of Tokyo demonstrated that it is possible to predict tropical cyclogenesis about two weeks in advance. It is based on simulations of eight tropical cyclones in August 2004 by applying a Nonhydrostatic ICosahedral Atmospheric Model (NICAM) on K computer.
