HRD researchers at 72nd Interdepartmental Hurricane Conference/Tropical Cyclone Research Forum, Miami, FL – 13-15 March 2018

HRD and AOML scientists participated in the 72nd Interdepartmental Hurricane Conference/Tropical Cyclone Operations and Research Forum. HRD  and AOML scientists presented or were coauthors on 8 of the 39 presentations. Jason Sippel chaired the two Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT) sessions, Sundararaman Gopalakrishnan chaired a panel discussion on “Recent and Planned Improvements in Modeling Capability”, and Frank Marks co-chaired a panel discussion on “Update on NOAA’s Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project: Proposed Framework for Addressing Section 104 of the Weather Research Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017“.

Presentations:

  1. Jun Zhang (Univ of Miami/CIMAS – NOAA/AOML/HRD) – “The role of surface fluxes in hurricane intensification through boundary layer recovery”
  2. George Halliwell (NOAA/AOML) – “Sensitivity of Edouard (2014) intensity predictions on ocean initialization”
  3. Jason Sippel (NOAA/AOML/HRD), Christopher Landsea (NWS/NHC), Mark DeMaria (NWS/NHC) – “The Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT): A 2018 Update”
  4. Galina Chirokova (CSU/CIRA), John Kaplan (NOAA/AOML/HRD) – “JHT Project 2: Improvements to Operational Statistical Tropical Cyclone Intensity Forecast Models Using Wind Structure and Eye Predictors”
  5. Frank Marks (NOAA/AOML/HRD) and Nicole Kurkowski (NWS/STI) – “Update on NOAA’s Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project: Proposed Framework for Addressing Section 104 of the Weather Research Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017”
