Title
Hurricane Hunting NASA Style: Using Space-Based and Airborne Measurements to Better Understand and Predict Hurricanes
Summary
NASA's Scott Braun discussed our current understanding and the suite of tools that NASA provides to improve understanding of hurricanes and similar storms. Millions of people worldwide are exposed to the potential hazards of these storms. Advances in observation systems and modeling have led to advances in storm track prediction and storm intensity forecasting. However rapid changes in storm intensity, storm structure, precipitation and storm surge have introduced new challenges.

Notes
-  Dr. Scott A. Braun, a research meteorologist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., specializes in the area of hurricanes. He is an expert at using satellite and aircraft data, along with computer modeling, to investigate how hurricanes form and intensify, including their interaction with the Saharan Air Layer. Braun is project scientist for the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission and the Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation structure and storm Intensity with a Constellation of Smallsats (TROPICS) mission. He is also the Goddard co-lead for the Decadal Survey Designated Observable Study for Clouds, Convection and Precipitation.
