Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS Accurately determine the three dimensional global atmospheric wind fields via satellite remote sensing data for both real time analyses and input to numerical weather prediction models. OBJECTIVES Develop techniques to map the three-dimensional 3-D wind fields associated with severe weather systems, using tropical cyclones for the initial study. Use remotely sensed data to determine the wind field from the surface to the upper levels to better understand the storm structure and to assist in determining the storm s intensity, thereby providing an important link to tropical cyclone data assimilation efforts.
