Hurricane Research Division (HRD) is a unit of the Atlantic
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML). We are engaged
in advancing the basic physical understanding and improving
the forecasts of hurricanes and tropical meteorological systems.
A key aspect of HRDs research is its annual program of
research flights aboard reconnaissance aircraft (two WP3D
turboprops and a Gulfstream IV-SP jet) flown by NOAAs
Aircraft Operations Center. More >>
