Research Projects

The Hurricane Research Division is involved in a number of inter-agency and international projects, including the U.S. Weather Research Program and Automated Surface Observation Station project of the National Weather Service.

The Hurricane Field Program contains our annual Field Program plans for the current and past years. Below is a list of our current Scientific Research Projects, click on the links to view more information about the various projects that our Principal Investigators are involved in. Under ASOS is our contribution to this National Weather Service project, documenting the siting of ASOS Stations. And Joint Programs contains a partial list of other joint programs we are participating in, or have participated in.
