HRD observation team monthly meeting – 19 May 2016

The purpose of the observation team meetings is to bring together the people who use observations in their research on a regular basis to discuss issues they’re having, provide updates on observations they’re analyzing or collecting, and any other information that may be of interest to the broader group.  These meetings are also an excellent opportunity to integrate all of the many uses of observations in HRD’s capacity to improve the understanding and prediction of tropical cyclones.

Agenda for May 2016:

  1. Update on field program
  2. Status and research updates:
    • Jun Zhang: “Doppler Wind Lidar (DWL) Status Update and Observations in Tropical Storm Erika (2015)”
    • Leon Nguyen: “Observations of intensifying sheared tropical cyclones: Bertha and Cristobal (2014)”

The presentation from the meeting is available on the anonymous ftp site:
