Ten Years Since Hurricane Katrina: Progress in Hurricane Modeling, Prediction, Decision Support, and Coastal Resilience

Date: 07/16/15

New models (such as the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting Model) are able to simulate hurricane structures as small as 1.2 miles across, improving predictions.
