On 16 August, 1977, a tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa. It wasn’t until nearly two weeks later that the wave developed enough convection and a surface circulation, and was designated a tropical depression in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. The system slowly moved west-southwestward, but rapidly intensifying into a category-5 […]
In February, 1982, The Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences published a ground-breaking study by Hugh Willoughby, Jean Clos, and Mohammed Shoreibah on what became to be known as the eyewall replacement cycle. Using data obtained from NOAA P3 flights into very intense Hurricanes Anita, David and Allen, they found that a common feature of intense […]

Twenty-three AOML and HRD scientists participated in the recent 32nd AMS Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology in San Juan, PR, as authors or co-authors on 36 presentations and 11 posters. Roughly 650 presentations (452 oral presentations in 70 sessions and 196 posters in 2 session) were submitted to the conference. Of the 440 TC-related presentations […]
