2019 Hurricane Forecast Improvement Program (HFIP)

Join us at the 2019 HFIP Annual Meeting to learn more about our Multipurpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED). MASED is the first instrumented dropsonde to conduct multiple submerge-and-surface profiles to improve hurricane modeling. And, MASED is programmable to address specific mission requirements:  mission duration, number of profiles, and profile depth.

This meeting will discuss key HFIP strategies including developing the next generation Hurricane Analysis and Forecast System (HAFS) which can provide an operational analysis and forecast out to seven days, with reliable and skillful guidance on TC track and intensity (including rapid intensification), storm size, genesis, storm surge, rainfall and tornadoes associated with TCs.
