The primary goal of NOAA/OAR/AOML’s Hurricane Research Division (HRD) is to improve the understanding and prediction of tropical cyclones (TCs). While this improvement can be accomplished from a variety of approaches, a unique capability of HRD is the routine collection and analysis of airborne observations within the tropical cyclone inner core and its atmospheric and … Continue reading Rob Rogers presents seminar on Advancing the Understanding and Prediction of Tropical Cyclones Using NOAA Aircraft Observations
The study introduces a new database that is freely available and consists of over 900 airborne Doppler radar analyses collected between 1997–2020. We demonstrate the capabilities of the database by identifying how the structure of hurricanes changes depending on the strength of the storm, which provides a foundation for future research avenues and computer model … Continue reading Paper describing large new airborne Doppler radar dataset in tropical cyclones released online in Monthly Weather Review
This summer during the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, scientists at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) will once again be on the frontlines helping NOAA prepare the public for severe weather. They will also conduct new research on the complex processes of how tropical cyclones form, develop, and dissipate. AOML’s operational missions tasked by NOAA’s Environmental … Continue reading New hurricane research supports advances to NOAA’s 2022 forecasts
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.
Recap of the 2021 hurricane season, recent research results on wind shear direction and intensity change, Saildrones, and other news on HRD employees. Check it out here. For more information, contact email@example.com.
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
Ocean Drone Sails into Category-4 Hurricane Sam, Scientists Sample Multiple Storms as Tropics Enter Peak for Hurricane Formation, HRD awards and recognitions, and more! Check it out at https://www.aoml.noaa.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Jul-Sep-2021-AOML-Keynotes-Newsletter.pdf.
The two NOAA P-3 aircraft, along with the NOAA G-IV, are returning to Lakeland today after 6 days in the Caribbean flying into and around Hurricane Sam, the strongest storm in the Atlantic so far this year. The aim of these collaborative missions between AOML/HRD and the Office of Naval Research Tropical Cyclone Rapid Intensification (TCRI) field … Continue reading NOAA completes aircraft investigations into Hurricane Sam
All three NOAA heavy aircraft are deploying to St. Croix today in preparation for missions into what is now Tropical Storm Sam. AOML/HRD plans to collaborate with the Office of Naval Research Tropical Cyclone Rapid Intensification (TCRI) field campaign to fly P-3 and G-IV aircraft missions into Hurricane Sam in the central North Atlantic. The … Continue reading Hurricane Field Programs gears up to fly Sam, recaps missions so far this year
