The Airborne Vertical Atmospheric Profiling System (AVAPS™) is held annually by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Earth Observing Laboratory to discuss Science, Operations and Dropwindsonde Technology, along with having an open discussions for the different topics. NCAR is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. HRD scientists made two presentations at the recent meeting … Continue reading HRD participates in the 24th AVAPS™ Users meeting
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.
April's science meeting consisted of two presentations: Sim Aberson: The polygonal eyewall of Hurricane Fabian Robert Rogers: Characteristics of Aligning Weak Tropical Cyclones Copies of the four presentations are available here.

February's science meeting, co-hosted by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), provided an update on developments of the Hurricane and Ocean Testbed (HOT), a new facility at NHC dedicated to facilitating the transition of research and development projects to operations in a physical space. For many years, NHC partnered with NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research via … Continue reading HRD Monthly Science Meeting of February 2022
On 29 November, 2021, Rob Rogers gave an invited virtual talk entitled "Advances in the Understanding and Prediction of Tropical Cyclone Intensity Change from Airborne Observations" at a new international joint tropical cyclone research organization, named the Asia-Pacific Typhoon Collaborative Research Center (AP-TCRC). The AP-TCRC is supported by the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee (the Committee) and … Continue reading Rob Rogers gave invited presentation at the opening ceremony for the Asia-Pacific Typhoon Collaborative Research Center (AP-TCRC) – 29 November 2021

This is the first study to examine how the direction of the wind shear changes how much heat and moisture is available to the TC and how it influences TC intensity change. These results provide TC forecasters another tool to predict intensity change. ■ Summary: The amount of wind shear, the change of winds with … Continue reading Study on how the direction of wind shear impacts tropical cyclone intensity published in Monthly Weather Review
