Advanced model diagnostics of tropical cyclone inner-core structure using aircraft observations
David S. Nolan
This project was funded by NOAA Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project (HFIP) with Award number NA12NWS4680004.
The goal of this project is to evaluate model performance using diagnostic tools that will help improve the prediction of TC intensity by the operational HWRF model. This project has two main objectives:
Zhang, J.A., S.G. Gopalakrishnan, F.D. Marks, R.F. Rogers, and V. Tallapragada, 2012: A developmental framework for improving hurricane model physical parameterization using aircraft observations. Trop. Cycl. Res. Rev., 1 (4):419-429.
