AOML Flies Science Missions into Succession of Atlantic Storms

“Many of the storms we flew in 2019 were ‘living on the edge,’ in that they were weak, vertically sheared, but also unpredictable. In previous years, we saw these storms intensify, such as Hurricane Michael in 2018. This season, many struggled to intensify. As we continue to build a dataset of these sheared storms, we … Continue reading AOML Flies Science Missions into Succession of Atlantic Storms

Paper on getting the best TC forecasts using NOAA’s G-IV published in Monthly Weather Review

Summary: During each hurricane season, NOAA’s Gulfstream-IV (G-IV) Hurricane Hunter aircraft measures wind, temperature, humidity, and pressure in and around hurricanes threatening the United States.  An instrument called the dropwindsonde is released from the G-IV to collect the data as it falls to the ocean surface.  The plane currently flies where we expect observations from the … Continue reading Paper on getting the best TC forecasts using NOAA’s G-IV published in Monthly Weather Review
