Improving Hurricane Forecasting with Gliders
During the 2023-2025 hurricane seasons, gliders are deployed in the Southeast and beyond to provide valuable data for hurricane intensity modeling. Glider deployments collect temperature and salinity profiles needed to accurately represent ocean features in ocean-atmosphere coupled models used for hurricane intensity forecasts.
