Hurricane WRF (HWRF) Tutorial

A Hurricane WRF Tutorial will be held on January 23-25, 2018 at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, MD. This will be a three-day event organized by the Developmental Testbed Center (DTC) and by the NOAA Environmental Modeling Center (EMC). The Hurricane Weather Research and Forecast system (HWRF) is a coupled atmosphere-ocean model suitable for tropical cyclone (TC) research and forecasting in all Northern and Southern Hemisphere ocean basins.

Tutorial participants can expect to hear lectures on all aspects of HWRF, including model physics and dynamics, nesting, initialization, coupling with the ocean, postprocessing, and vortex tracking. Additionally, enrichment lectures on HWRF's multistorm capability, TC verification, HWRF ensemble system, and NCEP's future plans for TC numerical weather prediction will be presented. Practical sessions will give tutorial participants hands-on experience in running HWRF.
