WRF for Hurricanes
2017 Hurricane HWRF Tutorial
Location: College Park, MD
A Hurricane WRF Tutorial is being planned for early 2017, to be held at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, MD. This event is organized by the Developmental Testbed Center (DTC) and by the NOAA Environmental Modeling Center (EMC). The Hurricane Weather and Research Model (HWRF) is a coupled atmosphere-ocean model suitable for tropical cyclone (TC) research and forecasting in all Northern and Southern hemipshere basins.
Tutorial participants can expect to hear lectures on all aspects of the HWRF model, including model physics and dynamics, nesting, initialization, coupling with the ocean, postprocessing, and vortex tracking. Additionally, enrichment lectures on on advanced and future applications will be presented. Practical sessions will give tutorial participants hands-on experience in running HWRF.
