January’s Science meeting consisted of 7 of the 9 presentations made by AOML/HRD researchers at the 95th AMS Annual Meeting held in Phoenix, AZ from 4-8 January 2015:

  1. Bachir Annane (from a poster):  Impact of CYGNSS Data on Hurricane Analyses and Forecasts in a Regional OSSE Framework
  2. Javier Delgado: Improving the Performance of the Basin Scale HWRF System
  3. Xuejin Zhang: Targeting on the Research to Operational Transition with the Basin-scale HWRF Modeling System
  4. Xuejin Zhang (for Gopal): A Global to Local-Scale Hurricane Forecasting System
  5. Lisa Bucci (from a poster): OSSE Evaluation of a Hyperspectral Sounder and its Potential Impact on Hurricane Prediction
  6. John Gamache: Real-time Airborne Radar Data Quality Control and transmission from NOAA Aircraft for assimilation into HWRF
  7. Frank Marks: NOAA’s Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project – HFIP

Two other presentations from the conference were:

  1. Jason Dunion (for Mike Black): Tropical Cyclone Research Utilizing the Global Hawk Unmanned Aircraft
  2. Robert Atlas: Observing System Simulation Experiments to Assess the Potential Impact of Proposed Observing Systems on Hurricane Prediction

The two posters presented were:

  1. Bachir Annane:  Impact of CYGNSS Data on Hurricane Analyses and Forecasts in a Regional OSSE Framework
  2. Lisa Bucci: OSSE Evaluation of a Hyperspectral Sounder and its Potential Impact on Hurricane Prediction
