HRD Seminar – Dr. Sean PF Casey, CIMAS and AOML/HRD – 15 February 2018

Dr. Casey presented a seminar titled "Geostationary Hyper-Spectral Sounder (Geo-HSS) Constellation:  A Global Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) Assessment". Abstract Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) can provide quantitative assessments of potential impacts of new observation sources, without the instrument actually being built in some cases. This presentation describes the set-up of global-scale OSSEs, from the … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Dr. Sean PF Casey, CIMAS and AOML/HRD – 15 February 2018

HRD Seminar – Scott B. Sieron, Pennsylvania State University – 12 February 2018

Scott presented a seminar titled  “Mesoscale tropical cyclone model EnKF data assimilation of all-sky satellite radiances: advancing from IR to microwave”. Abstract Development with the WRF tropical cyclone configuration and EnKF data assimilation system at Penn State is ongoing towards supporting the direct assimilation of top-of-atmosphere microwave emission observations in all sky conditions. These observations relate … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Scott B. Sieron, Pennsylvania State University – 12 February 2018

HRD Seminar – Michael Fischer, University of Albany/SUNY – 9 February 2018

Michael presented a seminar titled  “Normalized Convective Characteristics of Tropical Cyclone Rapid Intensification Events in the North Atlantic and Eastern North Pacific”. Abstract The relationship between tropical cyclone (TC) convective characteristics and TC intensity change is explored using infrared and passive microwave satellite imagery of TCs in the North Atlantic and eastern North Pacific basins from … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Michael Fischer, University of Albany/SUNY – 9 February 2018
