Summary: A new instrument, called an airborne Doppler Wind Lidar (ADWL, for short), was flown on NOAA’s hurricane hunter aircraft into two storms during 2016. This instrument measures winds above and below the plane. The ADWL measures wind where radar on the aircraft cannot: the radar can measure the wind where there are clouds or … Continue reading Paper on the Doppler Wind Lidar, a new instrument to measure wind from hurricane hunter aircraft, published in the journal Sensors
Summary: Though tropical cyclones (TCs) are usually hundreds of miles across, the strongest wind occurs in gusts that can be smaller than 100 yards across, or the size of a football field. We call features that cover such a small area the “turbulent scale.” Other features that are important in forecasting TCs can be as … Continue reading Paper on how getting turbulence correct in forecast models can improve intensity forecasts in sheared storms published in Monthly Weather Review
