GHRC Published GRIP Hurricane and Tropical Storm Forecasts

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GRIP Hurricane and Tropical Storm Forecasts dataset. This dataset consists of tropical cyclone model forecast tracks archived during the NASA Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) field campaign. GRIP was one of three hurricane field campaigns conducted during the 2010 Atlantic/Pacific hurricane season. This tri-agency effort included NASA GRIP, the NSF Pre-Depression Investigation of Cloud-systems in the Tropics (PREDICT) and the NOAA Intensity Forecasting Experiment 2010 (IFEX10). The hurricane and tropical storm forecasts data files are available from August 12 through November 14, 2010 in ASCII text format with browse files in KML format, viewable in Google Earth. The ASCII text files contain 5-day model “consensus” forecasts and the KML browse files contain model forecasts ranging from 5-days to 10-days. It should be noted that the storm track files provided in this dataset do not include all of the tropical weather systems observed during the course of the campaign.
