HRD Seminar – Dr. Chris Collimore, Joint Institute For Regional Earth System Science and Engineering, UCLA – 5 March 2019

Dr. Collimore presented a seminar titled “The Impact of High Aerosol Concentrations on Tropical Cyclone Formation". ABSTRACT: Prior studies have shown that high levels of aerosols in the environment of convective clouds can cause the convection to become more vigorous through a five step process. Tropical cyclones (TCs) start as clusters of convective clouds and … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Dr. Chris Collimore, Joint Institute For Regional Earth System Science and Engineering, UCLA – 5 March 2019

HRD Seminar – Dr. Dave Raymond, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology – 12 December 2018

Prof. Raymond presented a seminar titled “Control of Convection in High-Resolution Simulations of Tropical Cyclogenesis”. ABSTRACT: Three idealized high-resolution simulations of tropical storm formation from a weak vortex are analyzed. The three simulations include a case using warm rain microphysics, a case in which surface friction is omitted, and a case in which ice microphysics … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Dr. Dave Raymond, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology – 12 December 2018

Hurricane Field Program Update – Saturday, September 29, 2018

Unfortunately the NOAA P-3 was not able to complete a 4th and final mission into developing Invest 96E today. Invest 96E completed its genesis phase as it is now Tropical Storm Sergio. We were, however, able to complete three important, unique genesis stage missions with the P-3 over the past fews days, and the data … Continue reading Hurricane Field Program Update – Saturday, September 29, 2018

Hurricane Field Program Update – Thursday, September 27, 2018, 9 AM ET

The NOAA P-3 is continuing HRD research-tasked missions out of Liberia, Costa Rica, in support of the Genesis Stage Experiment objectives of the Hurricane Field Program - Intensity Forecasting Experiment. Missions are focusing on the potential development of a disturbance in the East Pacific near 96W. Thursday, September 27, 2018 NOAA42: The P-3 will fly … Continue reading Hurricane Field Program Update – Thursday, September 27, 2018, 9 AM ET

Hurricane Field Program Update – Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 9 AM ET

HRD has tasked the NOAA P-3 for tropical cyclone genesis research missions in the East Pacific, to/from Liberia, Costa Rica, beginning today. Wednesday, September 26, 2018 NOAA42: The P-3 will fly a research mission into the East Pacific to survey a potential genesis region, including the Papagayo Gap wind flow. Takeoff from Liberia, Costa Rica, … Continue reading Hurricane Field Program Update – Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 9 AM ET

Hurricane Field Program Update – Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 9 AM ET

HRD is tasking the NOAA P-3 for tropical cyclone genesis research missions in the East Pacific, to/from Liberia, Costa Rica, beginning on Wednesday. The P-3 will ferry to C. R. today, and missions are expected to continue through Saturday. The goal is to capture processes related to the formation, or non-formation, of a tropical cyclone … Continue reading Hurricane Field Program Update – Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 9 AM ET
