Webinar: Aerial Deployment of Spotter Buoys During the 2022 and 2023 Hurricane Seasons

Sofar Ocean

In this webinar, Sofar Ocean Data Analyst Ciara Dorsay presented key results from aerial deployments of Spotters ahead of multiple extreme storms, including Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Idalia during the 2022 and 2023 hurricane seasons. Data collected by the airdropped Spotters improves our ability to understand hurricane dynamics, predict hurricane impacts, protect coastal communities, and accelerates research conducted by Sofar and its partners in the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) Hurricane Coastal Impacts (NHCI) project.

A questions and answers session followed the conversation.
