Short summary
In this study, the impact of O3 observations on the tropical cyclone (TC) structure is examined using the WRF-Chem with an ensemble-based data assimilation (DA) system. For a TC case that occurred over East Asia, the ensemble forecast is reasonable and the O3 assimilation affects both chemical and atmospheric variables near the TC area. All measures indicate a positive impact of DA on the analysis – the cost function and root mean square error have decreased by 16.9% and 8.87%, respectively.
