Daneisha Blair: A two-way coupled ocean-wave-atmosphere model for the DWH oil spill

Description: The model will be presented with a research plan

Heather Holbach: Analysis of SFMR High Wind Speed Measurements

Description: During the past few hurricane seasons, it was observed on several occasions that the peak surface wind speeds retrieved by the Stepped-Frequency Microwave Radiometer (SFMR) in major hurricanes were inconsistent with other observations available to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC). Accurate estimation of a tropical cyclone’s intensity and wind structure is an essential first step to providing accurate forecasts of intensity and the cyclone’s potential impacts. This talk will provide examples and initial analysis of some of the data from major hurricanes that have recently been sampled. Possible reasons for observed discrepancies will be proposed and future steps to continue analyzing the data will be discussed.
