HRD observation team monthly meeting – 16 June 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 June 2016:

  1. Update on field program
  2. Status and research updates:
  • Jun Zhang: “Observations of sea-surface temperature in hurricanes from GPS dropsondes”
  • Sim Aberson: “Dropsonde dry bias at low altitudes”
  • Sim Aberson, Part Deux: “In what type of TCs are the most intense flight level (P-3) updrafts?”

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