ABSTRACT

Mariner's Guide for Hurricane Awareness in the North Atlantic Basin   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Analysis & forecasts of all tropical cyclone activity rely heavily on ship observations in order to obtain the best estimate of the synoptic patterns guiding tropical cyclone motion and intensity. Three hourly ship observations in the vicinity of any active tropical system are an extremely valuable data point for input into tropical cyclone forecasts and guidance. All ship observations recorded near tropical cyclones are greatly appreciated and provide a most valuable data source used in determining current and forecast wave heights & wind fields associated with these systems."
