These two papers analyze extreme upward air currents, called “convective bursts,” in hurricanes that have been believed to be important for hurricane intensification. We use the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model to look at convective bursts in two hurricanes: Hurricane Dean from 2007 and Hurricane Bill from 2009. In the first paper, we study […]
July’s science meeting consisted of 6 presentations: Steve Guimond (NASA) – “Reviving the Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (IWRAP) for Hurricane Research: A Case Study of Hurricane Rita (2005)” Mu-Chieh (Laura) Ko – “Preliminary Review – HWRF-B 2016 Retrospective Dataset” Robert Rogers – “The Challenge of Intensity Forecasting in Moderate Shear” Emily Paltz (Hollings […]
Congratulations to Rob on this recognition.
May’s science meeting consisted of 3 presentations: Jonathan Zawislak: Validation of tropical cyclone precipitation in HWRF using satellite observations Hua Chen – Azimuthal distribution of deep convection, environmental factors, and tropical cyclone rapid intensification: A perspective from HWRF ensemble forecasts of Hurricane Edouard Stephanie Stevenson (University of Albany/SUNY): Understanding intensity changes signaled by tropical cyclone lightning […]
The purpose of the observation team meetings is to bring together the people who use observations in their research on a regular basis to discuss issues they’re having, provide updates on observations they’re analyzing or collecting, and any other information that may be of interest to the broader group. These meetings are also an excellent […]
HRD and AOML scientists participated in the 71st Interdepartmental Hurricane Conference/Tropical Cyclone Operations and Research Forum. HRD scientists presented or were coauthors on 14 of the 45 presentations and 3 of the 10 posters. Shirley Murillo chaired the Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT) session and Sundararaman Gopalakrishnan chaired a panel discussion on “Research Supporting Operations: Current […]
HRD researchers Frank Marks and Robert Rogers presented summaries of “NOAA’s Hurricane Research” and “Aircraft Observations of Tropical Cyclones” and how they are used in tropical cyclone research to the World Meteorological Organization Regional Association IV Training Workshop held in the National Hurricane Center media room. Copies of the two presentations are available on the […]
Abstracts and recordings of the 25 presentations and 6 posters AOML & HRD researchers presented (or were co-authors) at the 97th AMS Annual Meeting are available online from the AMS website: Presentations: Bachir Annane, B. D. McNoldy, S. M. Leidner, R. N. Hoffman, R. Atlas, and S. J. Majumdar, Impact of Simulated CYGNSS Ocean Surface Winds […]
In October 2015, off the west coast of Mexico, Hurricane Patricia became the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the western hemisphere, intensifying faster than any other storm on record. A unique set of observations were collected in Patricia. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration/Office of Naval Research (ONR) aircraft […]
