TROPICAL STORM JIMENA DISCUSSION NUMBER 53
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP132015
1100 AM HST TUE SEP 08 2015

JIMENA IS A SHEARED CYCLONE AND CONSISTS OF A LARGE CIRCULATION OF
LOW CLOUDS WITH SOME PATCHES OF DEEP CONVECTION TO THE EAST OF
THE CENTER. GIVEN THE LACK OF DEEP THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY NEAR THE
CENTER…THE SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES HAVE CONTINUED TO
DECREASE…AND THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN LOWERED TO 40 KT. THE
GLOBAL MODELS SEPARATE THE LOW-LEVEL FROM THE MID-LEVEL CENTER AS
QUICKLY AS 48 HOURS, AND SHIPS GUIDANCE INDICATE THAT STRONG SHEAR
WILL CONTINUE TO IMPINGE ON THE CYCLONE. ON THIS BASIS…THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST CALLS FOR JIMENA TO BECOME A REMNANT LOW IN 48
HOURS OR SO. THE LOW COULD REMAIN LINGERING FOR A FEW MORE DAYS.

THE BEST ESTIMATE OF THE INITIAL MOTION IS TOWARD THE WEST OR 270
DEGREES AT 6 KT. SINCE JIMENA IS BECOMING A SHALLOW CYCLONE…IT
WILL LIKELY BE STEERED SLOWLY TOWARD THE WEST OR EVEN
WEST-SOUTHWEST BY THE LOW-LEVEL TRADE WINDS FOR THE NEXT 2
TO 3 DAYS. AFTER THAT TIME…THE REMNANT LOW WILL LIKELY TURN MORE
TO THE NORTHWEST AWAY FROM THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS AS A NEW TROUGH
APPROACHES FROM THE WEST. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS VERY CLOSE TO THE
MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS AND IS NOT TOO DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS
ONE.

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.
