Overshadowed by an outbreak of tornadoes in May, the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season began on June 1. NASA Goddard research meteorologist Scott Braun will present a timely lecture on how NASA is using space-based and airborne measurements to better understand and predict hurricanes. Braun is an expert in using these data, along with computer modeling, to investigate how hurricanes form and intensify. He was the principal investigator for NASA’s five-year Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel mission (2010-2015) that specifically targeted hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean basin.
