Depth of 26°C isotherm (D26) in the ocean and its derivative Tropical Cyclone Heat Potential (TCHP) are useful indicators of genesis, intensification and propagation of tropical cyclones. Hence, monitoring of these two parameters and the ability for their advance prediction is quite significant. A modified one-dimensional (1-D) ocean mixed layer model is deployed to predict D26 and TCHP 12 hours and 48 hours in advance on a daily basis following the methodology presented in Swain and Krishnan (2013, NRSC-ECSA-OSG-May2013-TR-529).

Tropical cyclone heat potential (TCHP), an important parameter for cyclone studies, is estimated on daily basis from 1998 to present with a one week time delay. The data used to estimate this parameter are (a) sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) from the available altimeters, (b) sea surface temperature (SST) from Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Imager (TMI) and the climatological values of the depth of the 26oC isotherm (D26). The procedure documented by Ali et al. (2012: IEEE GRSL) is followed in the estimation of TCHP.
