AOML Hurricane Scientists Facilitate Leap in Hurricane Modeling and Prediction Systems

Hurricane scientists at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory have created a new, advanced moving nest system within the Unified Forecast System, the bedrock of NOAA’s weather prediction applications.  AOML’s Hurricane Modeling and Prediction Team developed the high-resolution moving nest for the FV3 dynamical core, laying the foundation for next-generation advancements in hurricane forecasting.
