HRD seminar – Michael Kozar, Risk Management Solutions – 8 December 2015

Michael presented a seminar “Evaluation of Hurricane Wind Field Forecasts from Global Models Within the TIGGE Archive“. Abstract: Short- and mid-range forecasts of select North Atlantic hurricanes over the past few seasons—including Sandy (AL182012), Gonzalo (AL082014), Irene (AL092011), and Isaac (AL092012)—are analyzed to quantify biases and error magnitudes found across a storm’s entire wind field. …

HRD seminar – Dr. Benjamin Jaimes, University of Miami, RSMAS, Department of Ocean Sciences – 16 July 2015

Dr. Jaimes presented a seminar "Enhanced Wind-Driven Downwelling Flow in Warm Oceanic Eddy Features during the Intensification of Tropical Cyclone Isaac (2012): Observations and Theory” ABSTRACT: Tropical cyclones (TCs) typically produce intense oceanic upwelling underneath the storm’s center, and weaker and broader downwelling outside upwelled regions. However, several cases of predominantly downwelling responses over warm, …
