Saving lives

While the forecasting capability of devastating storms like hurricanes has considerably improved over the past few decades, much progress remains to be achieved in predicting their path and intensity. It is currently believed that significant improvements could be achieved through expanded atmospheric and oceanic observations, enhanced big data analyses, and advanced forecasts that are based on better numerical models and physics.

We seek to build the next generation of hurricane forecasting systems and technology. To fulfill this goal, we will harness our collective knowledge and expertise to propel us toward a “HurricaneX” project—similar to SpaceX—that will deliver more accurate models and forecasts, while also creating endowed professorships and scholarships for graduate students to attract the best talent.
