GoMRI Scientists with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi compared the accuracy and reliability of real-time ocean modeling forecast systems for near-surface currents. They examined models that combine many separate forecasts to produce ocean state uncertainties (ensembles) and models that produce single forecasts. The ensembles provided not only more accurate […]

(Nova Southeastern University) FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – They are something we take very seriously in Florida – hurricanes. The names roll off the tongue like a list of villains – Andrew, Charlie, Frances and Wilma. In the past 25 years or so, experts have gradually been improving prediction of the course a storm may take. […]

Study Provides New Approach to Forecast Hurricane Intensity

UM scientists offer new information to help improve tropical storm forecasting July 11, 2014 MIAMI – New research from University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science suggests that physical conditions at the air-sea interface, where the ocean and atmosphere meet, is a key component to improve forecast models. The study offers […]
