U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (USNRL) – June 1 marks the start of Hurricane Season! NRL supports U.S. Navy military and humanitarian missions with global hurricane and typhoon information using the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS®) since 1997. The latest version of the system, called COAMPS-TC®, provides hi-resolution, five-day predictions of tropical cyclones anywhere in the world.

“COAMPS-TC is world-class in its ability to predict tropical cyclones, and we’re continuing to make better forecasting for the Navy and DoD,” said Dr. Jonathan Moskaitis, global modeling and marine meteorology scientist.
