The Hurricane Research Division (HRD) is a part of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML). We are engaged in advancing the basic physical understanding and improving the forecasts of hurricanes and other tropical meteorological systems. A key aspect of HRD's activity is its annual field program of flights aboard NOAA's research aircraft (two WP-3D turboprops and a Gulfstream IV-SP jet) flown by NOAA's Aircraft Operations Center.
To follow the latest in our 2013 Hurricane Field Program click on our Blog, Facebook, Twitter, or RSS feed links below. When operations are underway we will be updating our blog at least once a day, but we will also be sending out notices on seminars, news, and other hurricane research relevant information.
