34th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology Virtual Meeting The 34th AMS Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology was held virtually 10-14 May after being postponed from 2020. This is the premiere meeting for operational and research scientists who work on understanding and forecasting tropical cyclones and other tropical weather around the world. HRD scientist … Continue reading HRD scientists participate in the 34th American Meteorological Society Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology

Addison presented a seminar titled "Radar Observations of Landfalling Hurricanes: Synthesizing Three Years of SMART Radar Missions" ABSTRACT: The Shared Mobile Atmospheric Research and Teaching radars observed five landfalling tropical cyclones (TCs) from 2016-2018. The observations were largely targeted toward understanding asymmetric convective and dynamic processes. Such processes are thought to lead to the intensification … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Addison Alford, University of Oklahoma – 17 June 2019
Summary: The Global Hawk, a drone or uncrewed aircraft system (UAS), has been used since 2010 to gather data to improve forecasts. The Global Hawk can release dropsondes that measure temperature, pressure, humidity, and wind up to four times every second, starting at an altitude of up to 60,000 feet until it falls to the … Continue reading Paper on the impact of Global Hawk dropsondes data on global model forecasts published in Weather and Forecasting
Dr. Hazelton presented a seminar titled “High-Resolution fvGFS Forecasts of Atlantic Tropical Cyclones: Structural Analysis and Evaluation of the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season”. ABSTRACT: As numerical models reach finer horizontal and vertical resolution, evaluation of storm structure is critical to model assessment and improvement. Structural metrics based on horizontal wind are examined in high-resolution TC forecasts … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Dr. Andrew Hazelton, NOAA/GFDL, Princeton, NJ – 29 May 2018
April’s science meeting consisted of five presentations: Andrew Kren - Impact of Global Hawk dropsonde data assimilated in the NCEP GFS model during SHOUT: Hurricanes Matthew and Nicole in 2016 Hui Christophersen - Impact of Global Hawk Dropsondes on Tropical Cyclone Analyses and Forecasts Sim Aberson - 1-km HEDAS analysis of Hurricane Patricia just after peak … Continue reading HRD Monthly Science Meeting of April 2018
To demonstrate how tropical cyclone research is used to improve forecast guidance HRD researchers Drs. Frank Marks, Robert Rogers, and Jason Sippel presented summaries of “NOAA’s Hurricane Research”, “Aircraft Observations of Tropical Cyclones”, and "Tropical Cyclone Modeling and Data Assimilation" to the World Meteorological Organization Regional Association IV Training Workshop held in the National Hurricane … Continue reading NOAA Hurricane Research overview for WMO Region IV Training Workshop, NHC – 26 February 2018
The Cyclone Workshop (1-6 October) provides a forum for discussions on current research topics in the field of synoptic and mesoscale meteorology. The Workshop is organized by and for researchers and operational meteorologists, and covers a broad range of topics including: extratropical cyclone lifecycles, global dynamics and energetics, severe local storms, tropical-extratropical interactions, tropical cyclone … Continue reading Jason Sippel attends the 18th Cyclone Workshop in Sainte Adele, Quebec
