         MISSION / VISION    |    About EMC

EMC > Hurricanes > HOME


The HWRF group at EMC works in conjunction with members of the Global, Mesoscale, and Marine brances to continually make improvements to the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecast System (HWRF) model for each hurricane season.
Extensive testing and evaluation is completed for each new model configuration before these changes are incorporated into the operational model. Collaboration from organizations like GFDL, DTC, NHC, and HRD is also essential to the hurricane team's progress.
