Join us on Thursday, June 8, 2023, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET for an edition of NSTA’s Science Update.
Advancing our understanding of hurricanes and improving forecasts require measurements from the most violent parts of the storms, where ships and aircraft cannot safely travel. The ocean-atmosphere interface within a hurricane is difficult to measure and is not well understood, but it's a crucial region where hurricanes interact violently with the ocean and exchange energy with it.
This presentation will describe a new NOAA project to direct surface ocean drones ("saildrones") into hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean. Topics will include what saildrones are, how they work and can survive a hurricane, what kind of data (and videos!) we get from them, and how the data is being used to aid forecasters and improve our understanding of hurricanes.
All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.
We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
Register today to participate in this web seminar. Upon registering you will receive an e-mail confirmation including information about the program and suggested links to visit in preparation of the event. Additional information about the web seminar will be e-mailed to you days before the program.
New Users: Log in 15 minutes prior to the start time for an introduction to NSTA web seminars.
Each web seminar is a unique, stand-alone, program. Archives of the web seminars and the presenters' PowerPoint presentations will be available through the links on this web page. Read answers to frequently asked questions from participants.
