Abstract

The topographic effects on the structure and rainfall in the Hurricane Georges were studied numerically. A high resolution, non-hudrostatic mesoscale was used for the study. It was observed that as Hurricane georges interacted with Puerto Rico only minor intensity changes were observed. The onshore and upslope flows over the Cordillera Central enhanced the rainfall and altered the storm structure. The model was found successful in capturing the main characteristics of Hurricane georges prior to and during the landfalls of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola.
