Braving the Eye of the Storm Research from drone penetration of hurricane eyewall published The most dangerous part of the hurricane is the eye-wall close to the ocean. It’s where the storm draws energy from heat in the water, which influences how strong – and how quickly – the storm will develop. It’s also where … Continue reading Braving the Eye of the Storm: Research from drone penetration of hurricane eyewall published
A new paper by a team of scientists, led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), demonstrates that observations just above the surface of the ocean near the eyewall of the storm can improve the performance of hurricane models used by forecasters. Scientists in 2017 and 2018 … Continue reading New paper on hurricane research with drones highlighted in UCAR/NCAR news

Summary: Tropical cyclones (TCs) are made up of thunderstorms (what we call convection), and these storms have strong winds moving up and down (what we call up- and downdrafts). Dry air enhances evaporative cooling (the same process that cools people when they sweat) from convective downdrafts, reducing the temperature and humidity in low levels; this … Continue reading Paper on how tropical cyclones in shear intensify published in Geophysical Research Letters
