New analysis and forecasting tools and techniques, developed by the research community, were tested and evaluated during 2006 at the National Hurricane Center/Tropical Prediction Center (TPC/NHC), in real time for the sixth consecutive hurricane season, as facilitated by the Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT). Fifteen third round (FY05-06) projects were tested and evaluated, following any necessary technique modifications or other preparations. These projects include upgrades to dynamical models and model components, enhancements to observed data and assimilation techniques, track forecasting algorithms, intensity estimation and forecasting algorithms, and assessments of dynamical model forecasts of tropical cyclogenesis and of tropical cyclone rainfall. An announcement of Federal Funding Opportunity was released in June. Letters of Intent followed by full Proposals were submitted by Principal Investigators and evaluated by the JHT Steering Committee. At the time of this writing, the 27 full Proposals received were being evaluated and the ones selected will be tested during this coming hurricane season.
