Ocean Sciences 2022: Overview of COAWST modeling system application to study barrier island breaching during Hurricane Michael (2018). Supported by NOPP NHCI Project.
In preparation for land-based sensor deployments during the 2022 Hurricane season, scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted field tests at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Field Research Facility (FRF) in Duck, North Carolina in late March 2022.
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.
The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane season is just around the corner, officially beginning on June 1. New for this season, NRL-Monterey will provide deterministic COAMPS-TC® (Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System – Tropical Cyclone) forecast fields in real-time to NOPP Hurricane Coastal Impacts project partners, for the purpose of forcing surge/inundation/wave model forecasts for landfalling Atlantic tropical cyclones (TCs).
