NOAA invests $1.3 million with university and federal researchers for hurricane forecasting advances

NOAA’s Office of Weather and Air Quality has funded seven multi-year proposals totaling $1.3 million this year for university partners and federal scientists to more rapidly and smoothly transfer new technology, research results, and observational advances through NOAA’s Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT) to operational hurricane forecasting.

NOAA near-term weather forecasts get powerful boost from new computer model

Research yields new tool to achieve a weather-ready nation

Starting today, NOAA is using a sophisticated new weather forecast computer model to improve predictions of quickly developing severe weather events including thunderstorms, winter storms and aviation hazards such as clear air turbulence.

NOAA research finds new way to identify which El Niño events will have biggest impact on U.S. winter weather

New research from NOAA and the University of Washington suggests that using satellites to detect heat from deep convective cloud tops may be a way to detect El Niño and could help forecasters predict the unusual weather it causes.

Pushing the boundaries of research at NOAA in the ocean

Part two of a two-part series on innovative and emerging projects supported by NOAA Oceanic and Atmospheric Research

Taking risks is a necessary part of advancing science. NOAA recognizes the need to invest in these emerging research areas and recently supported several inventive and high-risk projects. Two projects supported by OAR seek to improve NOAA’s fisheries management through global climate prediction systems and enhance how scientists measure ocean chemistry at great depths.

Since Katrina: A decade of NOAA hurricane research

Advancing hurricane forecasting, improving models, and increasing observations

A decade ago, the United States experienced one of the most active and destructive hurricane seasons ever recorded. The loss of life and destruction of property from Hurricanes Katrina (Aug. 29), Rita (Sept. 24), and Wilma (Oct. 24) drove NOAA to re-evaluate hurricane research and severe storm preparedness.
