The Hurricane Research Division (HRD) is a part 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.
Observing system simulation experiments (OSSEs) show the potential impact of Doppler wind lidar observations from the International Space Station, including improvements in hurricane track and intensity forecasts.
