ABSTRACT

Hurricane Warning: The Critical Need for a National Hurricane Research Institute   [open pdf - 291KB]

"The Board has engaged the Nation's experts in science and engineering throughout government, academia and industry in an intensive study of how fundamental research, and complementary applied or mission-directed fundamental research, can improve the ability of our Nation to become more resilient to hurricane impacts. The outcome of that effort, described in this report, is an action agenda - a National Hurricane Research Initiative (NHRI) - for urgently needed hurricane science and engineering research and education that engages relevant agencies across the Federal government, is built upon highly focused priorities, will strengthen disciplinary research and create multidisciplinary frameworks for studying the hurricane in an integrative fashion, and provide mechanisms for the efficient transfer of research outcomes to operational practice."
