UW-Madison Scientists Help Fly Global Hawk Drone Into Hermine, Other Hurricanes

Late Wednesday night (Aug. 31), a shiny white aircraft with a wingspan of roughly 120 feet soared aloft from Wallops Island, Virginia. Following takeoff, the aircraft — a high-altitude drone known as a Global Hawk — flew patterns off the east coast of the U.S., tracing two big loops as it headed south toward Florida’s west coast. Its destination: Tropical Storm Hermine in the Gulf of Mexico.

Life After Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee: Using Augmented Reality to Renew Local Communities

AerialImage2_Irene.jpg

In late summer 2011, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee left extensive damage in the Capital Region, especially along creeks and riverbeds. In the aftermath, several communities, including the Village of Schoharie, worked to pick up the pieces, while dealing with the impact of extreme flooding, rainfall, and power outages. The impact was very personal for Lillian Spina-Caza, lecturer in the Department of Communication and Media at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, who is a Schoharie resident. Today, with assistance from a $90,000 grant from the New York State Council of the Arts, Spina-Caza and Schoharie Area Long Term Inc., (SALT) are working to develop the “Geo to Go” interactive website and augmented reality (AR) arts, cultural, and heritage trails project.

GOES-R Satellite Could Provide Better Data for Hurricane Prediction

The launch of the GOES-R geostationary satellite in October 2016 could herald a new era for predicting hurricanes, according to Penn State researchers. The wealth of information from this new satellite, at time and space scales not previously possible, combined with advanced statistical hurricane prediction models, could enable more accurate predictions in the future.
