Paper on the impact of very small-scale winds on hurricane forecasts published in Monthly Weather Review
The National Hurricane Center uses the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model to forecast where a hurricane will go, how strong it will be, how large it will be, and where the strongest winds are. This paper looks at … Continue reading
Early on the morning of September 24, 2005, Major Hurricane Rita came ashore near the Texas/Louisiana border. In the midst of the very active 2005 hurricane season, Rita caused considerable panic as it approached the coast, with scenes of destruction … Continue reading
Paper on a dataset of dropwindsonde observations in tropical cyclones published by the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
A long-term (1996–2012), high-quality, high vertical resolution (∼5–15 m) GPS dropsonde dataset is created from NOAA Hurricane flights and consists of 13,681 atmospheric profiles for 120 tropical cyclones. The paper can be accessed at http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/abs/10.1175/BAMS-D-13-00203.1.
Early on the morning of August 29th, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Louisiana delta region and the Mississippi coast. The storm surge brought enormous damage to the Gulf Coast and, when the levees around New Orleans failed, a … Continue reading
