Our overall objective is for CIMAS and its collaborating groups to further advance the capabilities, accuracies and reliability of numerical hurricane forecasting in FY14-15 under HFIP. To achieve this objective, we will focus on (1) experimenting with alternative physics packages; (2) exploring the assimilation of satellite data through regional OSSE system; (3) implementing new capabilities in the operational HWRF model; (4) collaborating with NWS and other federal scientists, and research scientists from other organizations on furthering HFIP’s plans and objectives; (5) managing the technical aspects and R2O and O2R transitions of the HFIP program.
