Drifting buoy observations of ocean surface waves in Hurricanes Ian and Fiona (2022) are combined with modeled wind speed to explore the evolution of the sea surface from moderate to extreme winds (up to 54 m s −1).
On July 20, 2023, at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium 2023 (IGARSS 2023) in Pasadena, CA, Stephen Frasier of the University of Massachusetts presented analysis of Capella SAR images of Tampa Bay, FL, from the time of the landfall of Hurricane Ian (2022).
On July 17, 2023, at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium 2023 (IGARSS 2023) in Pasadena, CA, Roland Romeiser of the University of Miami presented "Rapid SAR-Based Mapping of Hurricane Damages After a Landfall," a poster about the analysis of radargrammetry-based topography data from the St. Petersburg, FL, area.
The focus of this study is a novel machine learning framework trained on building, hazard, and geospatial data to hindcast damage from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Michael, and Laura, with the objective of forecasting expected damage from future hurricanes.
At the virtual AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting 2022, PI Roland Romeiser presented an overview of the planned contributions of the SAR remote sensing team to the NHCI project.
Ocean Sciences 2022: Overview of COAWST modeling system application to study barrier island breaching during Hurricane Michael (2018). Supported by NOPP NHCI Project.
Measurements made by Task 3B in response to Hurricane Ian were presented by Dr. Jenna Brown from the US Geological Survey (USGS) at the Coastal Sediments 2023 conference on April 13 in New Orleans, LA.
NHCI Program Manager Dr. Reggie Beach presented the project and 2022 progress at the Tropical Cyclone Observations and Research Forum (TCORF) Interdepartmental Hurricane Conference at Florida International University.
