Lead PI: Mr. Anthony G. Barnston

Unit Affiliation: International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI)

August 2012 - July 2016
Inactive
Atlantic Ocean
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will: 1) assess the extent and quality of MJO representation in the T382 CFS model; 2) examine the relationship between the model's MJO and its hurricane activity compared to observations and correct systematic errors; 3) repeat 1 and 2 with T126 CFS; and 4) assuming good results, implement a real-time hurricane forecast system.
