The Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) campaign focused on airborne observations of intensifying tropical cyclones to better understand the processes involved and predictability of rapid intensification. GRIP had a single deployment over August and September of 2010, with data taken in systems occurring in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, and one event in the Northeast Pacific. GRIP was the first research field campaign to use the Global Hawk platform over tropical cyclones. Airborne observations included radar, radiometers, and in situ observations. GRIP supported NASA’s Hurricane science and TRMM missions.
