Abstract

NOAA Airborne Computer Improves Hurricane The new workstation processes information from Movement Forecasts aircraft instruments and from probes dropped from the This year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad- plane, and uses it to make continuous estimates of the ministration (NOAA) hurricane-hunting aircraft will hurricane track. Based on that information, the aircraft begin sending on-the-spot analyses of storm activity to computer analyzes the distribution of wind and pre- forecasters in Miami, improving public warnings and cipitation relative to the storm center. forecasts from the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
