Abstract

The Coupled Boundary Layer Air-Sea Transfer (CBLAST)-Hurricane program is aimed at developing improved parameterizations using observations from the CBLAST-Hurricane field program that will be suitable for the next generation of hurricane-prediction models. The most innovative aspect of the CBLAST-Hurricane modeling effort is the development and testing of a fully coupled atmosphere-wave-ocean modeling system capable of resolving the eye and eyewall at ∼1-km grid resolution. The system includes three components: the atmospheric model, a surface wave model and an ocean circulation model.
