Ground-based Velocity Track Display (GBVTD)
Principal Investigator: Shirley Murillo (HRD)

Wen-Chau Lee (NCAR)Objectives:
The Ground-Based Velocity Track Display (GBVTD) is a wind retrieval algorithm that deduces a tropical cyclone's primary circulation using single-Doppler velocity radar data. This group intends to examine landfalling tropical cyclone's structure via the GBVTD technique.
