TROPICAL DEPRESSION KILO DISCUSSION NUMBER 9
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI CP032015
1100 AM HST SAT AUG 22 2015

U.S. AIR FORCE RESERVE RECONNAISSANCE FOUND MAXIMUM FLIGHT LEVEL
WINDS OF 30 KT ON THE APPROACH INTO KILO THIS MORNING…WHICH IS THE
BASIS FOR MAINTAINING THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 25 KT. ALTHOUGH
SATELLITE IMAGERY IS SHOWING PERSISTENT VIGOROUS DEEP CONVECTION TO
THE WEST OF THE APPARENT LOW LEVEL CENTER…THE AIRCRAFT WAS UNABLE
TO MAKE A SECOND FIX ON THE CENTER. IN ADDITION…A 1745 UTC SSMIS
PASS SUGGESTED ANOTHER CENTER MAY BE A LITTLE FARTHER TO THE
NORTHEAST…ALONG WITH A RATHER ELONGATED PATTERN OF LOW CLOUDS
AROUND KILO. ALL OF THIS CONTINUES TO INDICATE THAT…FOR THE
MOMENT…KILO REMAINS SOMEWHAT DISORGANIZED.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 295/13. A MID LEVEL ANTICYCLONE TO
THE SOUTHEAST OF HAWAII IS CONTINUING TO STEER THE DEPRESSION
TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST. GLOBAL MODELS SHOW THE RIDGE WHICH
EXTENDS TO THE WEST OF THIS ANTICYCLONE WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN OVER
THE NEXT FEW DAYS…PUTTING KILO IN A PERSISTENT AREA OF VERY WEAK
STEERING. THE FORECAST THUS SHOWS A SIGNIFICANT SLOWING OF THE
WEST-NORTHWEST MOTION BY DAY 3. BEYOND DAY 3…A SLOW MOTION TOWARD
THE NORTHEAST IS EXPECTED AS KILO STARTS TO FEEL THE INFLUENCE OF A
MID-TO-UPPER LEVEL TROUGH LOCATED NORTH OF HAWAII. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST IS VERY CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST THROUGH ABOUT 72
HOURS…THEN INDICATES A SLOWER FORWARD MOTION AT DAYS 4 AND 5…TO
BE IN BETTER AGREEMENT WITH THE CONSENSUS MODELS.

ALTHOUGH KILO HAS BEEN STRUGGLING TO ORGANIZE THUS FAR…THE
ENVIRONMENT CERTAINLY APPEARS TO BE CONDUCIVE FOR STRENGTHENING.
THE FORECAST TRACK TAKES KILO OVER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES OF
28-29C AND RELATIVELY WEAK SHEAR AS KILO MOVES TOWARD…AND THEN
REMAINS NEARLY STATIONARY UNDERNEATH AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AXIS. THE
INTENSITY FORECAST HAS BEEN NUDGED SLIGHTLY HIGHER TO BE IN BETTER
AGREEMENT WITH THE SHIPS GUIDANCE…BUT STILL WELL BELOW THE MORE
AGGRESSIVE GFDL AND HWRF.

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.
