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 January 2017:
- Update on 2017 HFP (Paul Reasor)
- Coyote, IR/BT comparison, West Pacific updates (Joe Cione)
- DWL/dropsonde comparisons (Lisa Bucci)
- HIRAD observations for initialization of the HWRF vortex (Kathryn Sellwood)
