Panel Format Session: This session has been selected by the Program Committee to be an official panel. Panelists will be invited authors designated by the conveners. Learn more



Session ID#: 26495

Session Description:
The pursuit of advancing hurricane science, particularly increasing the skill with which tropical cyclogenesis and intensification can be identified, has advanced with the ability to leverage new airborne platform technologies such as the NASA Global Hawk. Incremental steps are made with each new field campaign from agencies like NASA and NOAA. This session is meant to bring together scientists to share lessons learned from the field as it relates to research improvements and as a place to postulate where the community can advance in the future. Talks are welcome involving a multitude of field campaigns over the last ten years (EPOCH, NOAA SHOUT, IFEX, HS3, GRIP, THORPEX, etc.) with concentrations on improvements made to hurricane forecast models using observations/data assimilation in both the operational as well as post field campaign analysis of case studies.
