This study investigates how to get the largest improvements to tropical cyclone forecasts from wind profiles obtained from a proposed new instrument, a Doppler Wind Lidar, on polar-orbiting satellites. Wind profiles have the largest impact when the tropical cyclone’s structure was changing rapidly and when the measurements were taken close to the tropical cyclone center. … Continue reading Study on the best way to improve forecasts using a proposed satellite-based Doppler Wind Lidar published in Monthly Weather Review
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

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
The Annual Meeting is the world’s largest yearly gathering for the weather, water, and climate community. It brings together great minds from a diverse set of scientific disciplines – helping attendees make career-long professional contact and life-long friends while learning from the very top people in the atmospheric sciences. The 101st AMS Annual Meeting took place virtually … Continue reading HRD scientists participate in the 101st American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting
The NOAA Hurricane Hunters resumes missions into Eta on Tuesday, November 10, once their aircraft completed routine maintenance. Hurricane scientists supporting the flights will quality control the data collected from both aircraft such that the appropriate observation coverage and measurements optimize the performance of operational weather models. Tasked by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), the … Continue reading Tropical Storm Eta expected to strengthen while AOML supports further reconnaissance
