  1. Working Group/Tropical Cyclone Research Frank Marks and CAPT Mike Angove Co-Chairs

  2. JAG/TCR • February 2005: Federal Coordinator formed JAG/TCR • Formed as result of principal action item from 58thIHC • Supported by Interdepartmental Committee for Meteorological Services and Supporting Research (ICMSSR) • February 2007: JAG/TCR work culminated with publication of Interagency Strategic Research Plan for Tropical Cyclones: The Way Ahead

  3. Highlights of Interagency Plan • Table 4-1: Summarizes operational priorities of three operational tropical cyclone forecast and warning centers: TPC/NHC, CPHC, JTWC • Section 5.1 and Table 5-1: Presents research needs to aid in meeting the operational priorities of the tropical cyclone forecast and warning centers • Table 6-2, Recommendation #2: recommended TC research coordination that would: • Monitor and update the operational priorities of tropical cyclone forecast and warning centers (Table 4-1) • Monitor and update research needs (Table 5-1) • Develop a multiagency research implementation plan that outlines specific strategies to address all research needs

  4. WG/TCR • May 31, 2007 • Briefed the Interdepartmental Committee for Meteorological Services and Supporting Research (ICMSSR) on Interagency Plan • Recommendation: Form new OFCM Working Group for Tropical Cyclone Research (WG/TCR) • September 29, 2008 • WG/TCR membership identified • November 20-21, 2008 • 1st WG/TCR meeting

  5. WG/TCR 5

  6. WG/TCR 6

  7. WG/TCR Objectives / Tasks • Monitor and update operational priorities of tropical cyclone forecast and warning centers (Table 1) • Review and update research needs (Table 2) • Summarize agency research efforts against research needs • Develop interagency research implementation strategy • Leverage agency existing plans / resources to ensure all research needs addressed • Review implementation strategy at annual IHC

  8. Operational Priorities Table 1

  9. Research Needs Table 2

  10. Agency Research Contributions • Tabulated each agency research contribution (Man-year and $)

  11. Agency Contribution to Research Needs Man-Years vs. Detailed Research Topic Mapped using Detailed Research Need in Table 2 Intensity / Structure Track Genesis QPF Surge Model Development Observations [Seasonal]

  12. Agency Contribution to Research Needs Man-Years vs. Research Need Mapped using Primary Research Need in Table 2 General Research NWP Observations
