TROPICAL DEPRESSION SIX-E DISCUSSION NUMBER   2

300 PM MDT FRI JUL 15 2016

Visible satellite images show that the tropical depression still
lacks inner-core convection, but several curved bands are noted
over the southwestern and northern portions of the large
circulation.  Dvorak T-numbers were 2.0 from both TAFB and SAB,
and a recent ASCAT overpass revealed peak winds of 25 to 30 kt.
These data support an initial wind speed of 30 kt for this
advisory.  The forecast track of the depression keeps it over sea
surface temperatures above 28C for the next couple of days, and the
upper-level environment is also favorable for strengthening.
Intensification is predicted, but it may be gradual through tonight
due to the depression’s large size and lack of an inner core.
Steady strengthening is likely on Saturday and Sunday, and the
system is forecast to become a hurricane in about 48 hours, which is
in good agreement with the SHIPS guidance.  In 3 to 4 days, the
forecast track takes the tropical cyclone over waters that have been
cooled by the past couple of hurricanes.  This should result in a
leveling off of the intensity, followed by gradual weakening near
the end of the forecast period when the cyclone encounters even
cooler water.

The depression is moving west-northwestward or 295/8 kt. There has
been no change to the track forecast reasoning.  The cyclone is
expected to continue moving west-northwestward for nearly all of
the forecast period to the southwest of a strong mid- to upper-level
ridge that extends westward from northern Mexico.  The track
guidance remains in generally good agreement throughout the forecast
period.  The NHC track has been nudged northward, primarily
due to a small northward relocation of the center, but otherwise
the new track forecast is essentially an update of the previous
advisory.

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.
