1997 Hurricane Research Division Projects
The majority of the Hurricane Research Division projects
actively address the "Advance Short-term Warning and Forecast Services"
element of the NOAA 1995-2005 Strategic Plan. However, our scientists
are also involved in important research relating to the "Coastal
Ecosystems Health", "Implement Seasonal to Interannual Climate
Forecasts", and "Predict and Assess Decadal to Centennial
Tropical Cyclone Research
VARIATIONAL ANALYSIS OF AIRBORNE DOPPLER OBSERVATIONS
- To improve dual- and multiple-Doppler analyses by incorporating the
Doppler projection equations, the three-dimensional continuity equation,
and filtering within a variational scheme.
- REAL-TIME HURRICANE WIND
FIELD ANALYSIS AND DAMAGE MITIGATION
- To develop a real-time hurricane surface wind analysis
system for forecast, damage assessment and recovery planning
- AIRBORNE HURRICANE
- To analyze the relatively large amounts of data collected
on board the P-3 aircraft and to transmit key information to
forecasters on the ground.
