A new paper by a team of scientists, led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), demonstrates that observations just above the surface of the ocean near the eyewall of the storm can improve the performance of hurricane models used by forecasters. Scientists in 2017 and 2018 … Continue reading New paper on hurricane research with drones highlighted in UCAR/NCAR news

NOAA scientists flew multiple missions into Hurricane Michael in the days before landfall, closely observing the rapid intensification of the storm. Their tools included a small unmanned aircraft, called the Coyote, which flew into the strongest winds of the eyewall as the storm intensified to a category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. NOAA has … Continue reading Small, unmanned aircraft flies into rapidly intensifying Hurricane Michael
