Learn about the new William M. Lapenta Laboratory for the Hurricane and Ocean Testbed, the new Hurricane Analysis and Forecast System, the impact of Uncrewed Aerial Systems on hurricane forecasts, and more... The newsletter is available here.
For the first time, near-surface observations obtained by small Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (or drones) in a major hurricane (Hurricane Maria of 2017) were utilized in a state-of-the-art computer. Such observations are impossible to obtain using regular hurricane hunter aircraft. Furthermore, a new technique to identify and eliminate observations that may not be useful in improving analyses or … Continue reading Study on using hard-to-obtain observations from uncrewed aircraft in Hurricane Maria to improve analyses and forecasts published in Monthly Weather Review
AOML recently hosted a series of webinars about what AOML does and how it contributes to scientific advancement across the globe. You can catch Jon Zawislak, Rob Rogers, Joe Cione, and Shirley Murillo talking about hurricanes, or listen in on recordings of panels on coasts and coral reefs, and ocean research, and even a panel … Continue reading AOML holds virtual open house

Dr. Aksoy presented a seminar titled “Assimilation of Coyote UAS Observations in Hurricane Maria (2017): Optimization of Data Impact”. ABSTRACT The Coyote is a low-altitude small uncrewed aircraft system (sUAS) that is air-launched from the NOAA WP-3D (P-3) hurricane hunter aircraft through its existing standard A-size sonobuoy launch capability. Its meteorological sensors directly measure temperature, … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Dr. Altug Aksoy (CIMAS/HRD) – 3 March 2020
February’s science meeting consisted of seven presentations: Kyle Ahern: Simulated Boundary Layer Structure in Hurricane Earl (2010) After Peak Intensity Udai Shimada: Self-Introduction and Research Plans at HRD Levi Cowan: Comparison of Atlantic Tropical Cyclone Interactions with Upper Tropospheric Jets During Intensification and Weakening Sim Aberson: Multiple vortices as seen in Tropical Cyclone Rina on … Continue reading HRD Monthly Science Meeting of February 2020
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
