Hurricane Radar Data
The Hurricane Research Division collects radar data sets on most tropical cyclones they fly into. We collect these data sets from the NOAA P3 aircraft radars and process them at the end of each Field Program. By clicking on a storm and year from the list below you will go to a page which shows composites made during the flight and transmitted to the OAR in near real-time, labeled 'Operational Composites'. Under 'Research Composites' are the graphics that were created after the Field Program, when time was taken to process the radar data at a higher resolution and larger spatial scale.

Please note that we don't necessarily collect radar information on every hurricane that occurs, so this list isn't for all of the storms for every year.
