Impact of Typhoons on the Ocean in the Pacific (ITOP)

The ITOP experiment is focusing on typhoons in the Western Pacific Ocean. The experimental domain
is approximately the region shown in the figure below, excluding the South and East
China Seas. This is climatologically the region of highest tropical cyclone
occurrence in the world. ITOP will use a variety of experimental approaches to
measure typhoons and the ocean’s response to them. The experimental
measurements began in 2008, with enhanced measurements through the Spring,
Summer and Fall of 2010 and an intensive measurement period in August – October
of 2010.
