On Saturday, May 14th, AOML's Hurricane Research Division participated in the 2022 Eye of the Storm outreach event at Ft. Lauderdale's Museum of Discovery & Science. HRD scientists answered questions about flying into hurricanes and how the data get into the computer models to improve the forecast. National Weather Service/National Hurricane Center table talked about … Continue reading HRD participates in the 2022 Eye of the Storm outreach event at Ft. Lauderdale’s Museum of Discovery & Science.
The document aligns with AOML's three goals: Goal 1: Empower Our Team. Create an inclusive and cutting-edge environment that fosters discovery, exploration, and success. Goal 2: Observe the Earth System: Collect and evaluate ocean, atmosphere, and marine ecosystem observations that contribute to the body of scientific knowledge of the Atlantic Ocean region to improve the ability to … Continue reading AOML releases Accomplishments for 2021

NOAA Hurricane Hunters completed 6 missions into Tropical Storm Fred, and 11 and 7 missions in and around Hurricanes Grace and Henri, respectively. The first mission into Fred occurred before the system had a well-defined center and was not yet named a tropical depression. Subsequent missions sampled the dry air and wind shear around Fred … Continue reading NOAA Hurricane Hunters fly into and around Fred, Grace, and Henri, and gear up for the next system
The 2nd Boundary Layer Workshop was held virtually on 1-2 June. The goal of the workshop is to continue the work from the previous one to improve our understanding and modeling of surface and atmospheric boundary layer processes. The event was organized by Tilden Meyers of NOAA's Air Resource's Laboratory and David Turner of NOAA's … Continue reading Jun Zhang participates in 2nd Boundary Layer Workshop
HIWeather is a World Meteorological Organisation research project, developing warning capabilities for weather-related hazards, to increase resilience worldwide. HIWeather participants form an international network of scientists, in a wide variety of disciplines, all concerned with aspects of the production and communication of weather-related warnings. The workshop is aimed at anyone interested in improving weather-related warnings, … Continue reading Rob Rogers participates in the 2020 HIWeather Workshop
Summary: The energy for tropical cyclones comes mainly from the warm ocean below them. The warmer the water, the greater the energy, and the easier it is to transfer that energy (heat and moisture) into the air and into the tropical cyclone, allowing the thunderstorms that sustain the cyclone to develop. Cool water (below about … Continue reading Paper on the rapid intensification of Hurricane Michael published in Monthly Weather Review
NOAA concludes Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) tasked reconnaissance for Major Hurricane Delta on October 9. The P-3 aircraft took off from Lakeland, FL, at 5:00 AM EDT to survey the system's circulation. With the P-3 passing through the center multiple times, AOML scientists onboard and remotely supporting the missions continue to evaluate data collected from … Continue reading NOAA Hurricane Hunters conduct final mission before Hurricane Delta’s landfall
