Article on the eyewall replacement cycle in Hurricane Matthew (2016) highlighted as a Paper of Note in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

A recent paper in The Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences using ground-based radar and radar aboard NOAA P3 Hurricane Hunter aircraft brings new insight to the eyewall replacement cycle, a process by which an outer eyewall forms, contracts, and replaces the older, inner eyewall. During these cycles, the intensity and location of the strongest winds … Continue reading Article on the eyewall replacement cycle in Hurricane Matthew (2016) highlighted as a Paper of Note in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
