Travis Miles Interviewed by AccuWeather Regarding Glider Use in Hurricane Intensity Forecasts
May 4, 2022
Dr. Travis Miles was interviewed by AccuWeather yesterday discussing the uses of Rutgers underwater Slocum gliders towards forecasting hurricane intensities at landfall. The coastal ocean temperatures play an enormous role in the intensification of deintensification of tropical cyclones as they approach our coasts. Gliders acquire data from the ocean surface to the ocean floor, and can swim right under the eye of a tropical cyclone without any issues, delivering data back to us on land that we send to forecast models to help improve their accuracy.
