2013) use a linear discriminant analysis (Friedman 1989) to assign each tropical cyclone to one of five categories depending on a pair of metrics: lower-level thickness asymmetry (Th) and upper-level quasigeostrophic forcing for ascent (Q).
The reduced static stability also leads to an increased Rossby penetration depth, which promotes vertical connections between the upper- and lower-level perturbations (DeMaria 1996), and leads to enhancement of both the developing secondary circulation and the vertical motions resulting from quasigeostrophic forcing for ascent downshear of the upper-level trough (Kelly and Mock 1982).

With the advent of the programmable digital computer in the immediate post-World War II (WWII) period, Jule Charney and the team at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) made several 24-h forecasts of the large-scale features of the hemispheric circulation based on quasigeostrophic principles; advection of the geostrophic vorticity by the geostrophic wind (Charney 1948; Charney et al.
