The Campaign

The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) was a NASA Earth Venture-Suborbital investigation that focused on improving the understanding of the physical processes controlling hurricane intensity change and answering questions related to the roles environmental conditions and internal storm structures play in storm intensification. HS3 involved a variety of airborne data collected principally by Global Hawk aircraft and complemented by satellite observations as well as numerical modeling. HS3 consisted of three summer to early fall deployments (Aug - Sep 2012, 2013, 2014) during which observations were obtained from 21 flights over 9 named storms as well as Saharan Air Layer (SAL) outbreak events and nondeveloping systems. Flights occurred in storms over the western Atlantic ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
