Abstract:

The long-term goal is to develop a simple parameterization for the directional wave spectrum in the vicinity of a hurricane. Objectives are to develop andor modify the real-time operating system and analysis techniques and programs of the NASA Scanning Radar Altimeter SRA to process the SRA wave topography data into directional wave spectra during hurricane flights. Upload the spectra and the topography onto a web site immediately post-flight to make them available to ONR investigators.
