Warm water provides the energy for tropical cyclones to form and intensify, and knowing the temperature of the water is important in predicting how strong a hurricane will become. Dropwindsondes are instruments that measure air temperature, moisture, pressure, and wind velocity as they fall toward the ocean after release from Hurricane Hunter aircraft, but they […]
HRD and AOML scientists participated in the 71st Interdepartmental Hurricane Conference/Tropical Cyclone Operations and Research Forum. HRD scientists presented or were coauthors on 14 of the 45 presentations and 3 of the 10 posters. Shirley Murillo chaired the Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT) session and Sundararaman Gopalakrishnan chaired a panel discussion on “Research Supporting Operations: Current […]
HRD researchers Frank Marks and Robert Rogers presented summaries of “NOAA’s Hurricane Research” and “Aircraft Observations of Tropical Cyclones” and how they are used in tropical cyclone research to the World Meteorological Organization Regional Association IV Training Workshop held in the National Hurricane Center media room. Copies of the two presentations are available on the […]
The book, co-edited by HRD scientist Sundararaman Gopalakrishnan, is based on a series of lectures by scientists from the US, India and Australia, at a workshop held in Bhubaneswar, India on 9-14 July 2012. It provides information on recent advances in tropical cyclone (hurricane and typhoon) observations, data assimilation (the process of getting these observations […]
Abstracts and recordings of the 25 presentations and 6 posters AOML & HRD researchers presented (or were co-authors) at the 97th AMS Annual Meeting are available online from the AMS website: Presentations: Bachir Annane, B. D. McNoldy, S. M. Leidner, R. N. Hoffman, R. Atlas, and S. J. Majumdar, Impact of Simulated CYGNSS Ocean Surface Winds […]
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 […]
The HFIP program is coordinated through 3 strategic planning teams (Model Development, Data Assimilation/Ensemble, and Post Processing and Verification Development) and 3 tiger teams (High Resolution Physics, Ensemble Product, and Ocean Model Impact). The HFIP strategic planning teams develop our multi-year strategy for improving hurricane forecast guidance, while the tiger teams are responsible for overseeing […]
