Our ability to see into a hurricane has been changed by technology at RMS HWind. Using data directly from hurricane reconnaissance, HWind creates an unparalleled visualization of a tropical cyclone’s wind field. Along with satellite observations, these images allow us to see hurricanes in 4K! This ability is what caught the attention of RMS, a risk management company. How can creating a high resolution wind analysis of a tropical cyclone help manage risk? We’ll answer that question today as we’re joined by Dr. Mark Powell, the lead researcher who developed this product.
