Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS Accurately determine severe storm environmental parameters e.g. structure, intensity, rainrate using remotely sensed data, to significantly upgrade warnings and long-term forecasts of severe tropical and extra-tropical cyclones over oceanic domains. OBJECTIVES Develop innovative techniques to extract enhanced environmental information on severe oceanic storms from satellite sensors that permit global monitoring with rapid temporal sampling. Utilize the inherent advantages of multi-sensor digital data sets to probe and monitor the structure, intensity and location of ocean storms that frequently form and develop within remote, data sparse regions and then adversely impact Naval operations, shipping, air traffic and large populations. The new methods will be applicable globally and cover the full range of storm intensities encountered.
