HURRICANE GIL DISCUSSION NUMBER 10

NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP072013

200 PM PDT THU AUG 01 2013

I WAS TEMPTED TO INCREASE THE WINDS TO 75 KNOTS GIVEN THAT THE

SATELLITE ESTIMATES FROM TAFB AND SAB WERE BOTH 4.5 ON THE DVORAK

SCALE AT 1800 UTC. SINCE THAT TIME…THE DEEP CONVECTION NEAR THE

CENTER HAS WARMED UP SIGNIFICANTLY…SO THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS

KEPT AT 70 KNOTS.

GIL HAS BEEN MOVING WESTWARD OR 270 DEGREES AT 10 KNOTS. THIS MOTION

IS NOW MORE TOWARD THE WEST THAN EARLIER AND IS PROBABLY DUE TO THE

EXPANSION OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. GLOBAL MODELS NOW BUILD THE

RIDGE EVEN FATHER WEST AND STRONGER THAN BEFORE…KEEPING GIL ON A

STRAIGHT WESTWARD PATH FOR THE NEXT FIVE DAYS. SOME OF THE MODELS

EVEN HINT AT WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. ON THIS BASIS…THE OFFICIAL

FORECAST MAINTAINS GIL ON A GENERAL WESTWARD TRACK.

MICROWAVE DATA SHOW SOME INCREASE IN THE EYE OR CENTER DIAMETER.

THIS PERHAPS COULD LEAD TO SOME FLUCTUATIONS IN INTENSITY DURING

THE NEXT 12 HOURS OR SO DUE TO CHANGES IN THE INNER CORE. THE

CHANGE FOR A WESTWARD TRACK IN THE FORECAST INDICATE THAT THE

HURRICANE WILL REMAIN OVER WARMER WATERS LONGER…AND THE WEAKENING

PROCESS SHOULD BE MORE GRADUAL.

Technology Test Pilot

In 1995 At Maui High Performance Computing Center The Maui Scientific Analysis & Visualization of the Environment Program was first incubated. I was the principal investigator of this independant research project which was a joint development between MHPCC, Silicon Graphics Computers (SGI) & NKO.ORG. Using SGI Cosmo Worlds software, we pioneered the development of Internet based 3D virtual reality GIS based interactive worlds. In 1996 with a network of seven high performance SGI workstations we pioneered development of live streaming MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Real Video and QuickTime Streaming Server utilizing Kassenna MediaBase software. In Maui 2002 we pioneered and tested the first wireless live streaming video using laptop computers and Maui Sky Fiber's portable 3G wireless device. In Maui we pioneered live streaming video using usb modems from AT&T , Verizon as well as live streaming from iPhone 3 over 3G wireless networks. Today The Maui S.A.V.E. Program has diversified into storm tracking including visualization and analysis of large, memory-intensive gridded data sets such as the National Hurricane Center's wind speed probabilities. I volunteer my services to numerous Disaster Services Organizations. In June 2013 I returned from Hurricane Sandy deployment as a computer operations service associate with the Disaster Services Technology Group assisting as The American Red Cross migrated from a Disaster Response Operation to Long Term Recovery Operations. Pioneering the production/editing and Internet distribution of HD video to sites like Youtube.com and Vimeo.com we are shining the light towards environmental and peace efforts of humans across the globe. Since 1992 I have held the vision of establishing Maui, Hawaii as the environmental sciences center of the world. After His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet came to Maui This vision has expanded to establishing Maui as the environmental & peace center of the world.
